Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 62 / Monday, April 1, 2019 / Notices Agenda Tuesday, April 16, 2019 After introductions and brief announcements, the meeting will begin with reports from the Council Chairman and Executive Director, NMFS’s Regional Administrator for the Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office (GARFO), liaisons from the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) and Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC), representatives from NOAA General Counsel and NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement, and staff from the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Council also will receive a short report on the South Atlantic Council’s Dolphin Wahoo Amendment 10. The Council next will receive a presentation from NOAA Fisheries on the joint NOAA Fisheries/ U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recovery plan for the Gulf of Maine District Population Segment of Atlantic Salmon. This will be followed by a GARFO presentation on options that will be considered by the Atlantic Large Whale Take Reduction Team (ALWTRT) during its April 23–26, 2019 meeting. The Council’s discussion will focus on potential ALWTRT impacts on New England-managed fisheries. GARFO also will provide information about the Biological Opinion for all species listed under the Endangered Species Act that may be affected by the 10 fishery management plans that NOAA Fisheries is consulting on. The Council then will receive a progress report on the MidAtlantic Fishery Management Council’s Commercial eVTR Omnibus Framework Action, which the MAFMC is developing to consider implementing electronic Vessel Trip Reports for all vessels with commercial permits for species managed by the Mid-Atlantic Council. After the lunch break, members of the public will have the opportunity to speak during an open comment period on issues that relate to Council business but are not included on the published agenda for this meeting. The Council asks the public to limit remarks to 3–5 minutes. The Groundfish Committee will report next. The Council is scheduled to approve the range of alternatives for Groundfish Monitoring Amendment 23. It also will receive an update on the status of ongoing listening sessions, which are being held to gauge public interest in whether or not the Council should develop an amendment to the groundfish plan to limit access to the party/charter fishery. In addition, the Council will receive an update on its Five-Year Catch Share Review, which is VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 underway, and then approve a modified Gear Standards Policy to facilitate use of gear in accountability measures. At the conclusion of the discussion, the Council will adjourn for the day. Wednesday, April 17, 2019 The Council will begin the day with a progress report from its EcosystemBased Fishery Management (EBFM) Committee on setting catch limits for stock complexes, managing overfished stocks, and other issues related to the development of an example Fishery Ecosystem Plan (eFEP) for Georges Bank. The Council then will receive the Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s annual Ecosystem Status Report, which provides an update on the condition of the Northeast Continental Shelf ecosystem. The Atlantic Herring Committee will report next. First, the Council will receive a progress report on the development of 2019–21 specifications for Atlantic herring and approve the Scientific and Statistical Committee’s (SSC) acceptable biological catch and overfishing limit recommendations. The Council then will identify the range of additional management measures for the 2019–21 Atlantic herring fishing years if any measures are needed. Following the lunch break, the Council will receive and discuss the final report from the Research Set-Aside (RSA) Program Review Panel. The Council may make recommendations based on the panel’s findings. Next, the SSC will provide comments and recommendations on the Council’s revised research priorities, which were developed in 2018 and updated based on suggestions from the Council’s committees and Plan Development Teams. The full Council then will review, discuss, and approve the updated list. Before adjourning for the day, the Council will review, discuss, and approve updates to the Council Operations Handbook regarding the Research Steering Committee, research priority setting, and research review policy. Thursday, April 18, 2019 The third day of the meeting will begin with a report from the Council’s executive director on the staff’s participation in a facilitated offsite workshop, which was held March 13– 14, 2019 and was prompted by a recommendation from the Council Program Review Panel.

Finally, the Council will close out the meeting with ‘‘other business.’’ Although non-emergency issues not contained on this agenda may come before the Council for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Council action will be restricted to those issues specifically listed in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the Council’s intent to take final action to address the emergency.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    This National Telecommunications and Information Administration 
cybersecurity multistakeholder process focuses on promoting software 
component transparency. Most modern software is not written completely 
from scratch, but includes existing components, modules, and libraries 
from the open source and commercial software world. Modern development 
practices such as code reuse, and a dynamic IT marketplace with 
acquisitions and mergers, make it challenging to track the use of 
software components. The Internet of Things compounds this phenomenon, 
as new organizations, enterprises, and innovators take on the role of 
software developer to add ``smart'' features or connectivity to their 
products. While the majority of libraries and components do not have 
known vulnerabilities, many do, and the sheer quantity of software 
means that some software products ship with vulnerable or out-of-date 
components.
    The first meeting of this multistakeholder process was held on July 
19, 2018, in Washington, DC.\1\ Stakeholders presented multiple 
perspectives, and identified several inter-related work streams: 
Understanding the Problem, Use Cases and State of Practice, Standards 
and Formats, and Healthcare Proof of Concept. Since then, stakeholders 
have scoped their work streams and have begun developing products such 
as guidance documents. NTIA acts as the convener, but stakeholders 
drive the outcomes. Success of the process will be evaluated by the 
extent to which broader findings on software component transparency are 
implemented across the ecosystem.

2018, kickoff meeting are available at: https://www.ntia.gov/SoftwareTransparency.

    The main objectives of the April 11, 2019, meeting are to share
