Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 44 / Thursday, March 5, 2020 / Notices Science, Tourism, and Conservation Act of 1996 (Act), 16 U.S.C. 2401 et seq., as amended, 16 U.S.C. 2403a, which implements the Protocol on Environmental Protection (Protocol) to the Antarctic Treaty of 1959 (Treaty). The Rule provides for assessment of the environmental impacts of nongovernmental activities in Antarctica, including tourism, for which the United States is required to give advance notice under Paragraph 5 of Article VII of the Treaty, and for coordination of the review of information regarding environmental impact assessments received from other Parties under the Protocol. The requirements of the Rule apply to operators of nongovernmental expeditions organized or proceeding from the territory of the United States to Antarctica and include commercial and non-commercial expeditions. Expeditions may include ship-based tours; yacht, skiing or mountaineering expeditions; privately funded research expeditions; and other nongovernmental activities. The Rule does not apply to individual U.S. citizens or groups of citizens planning travel to Antarctica on an expedition for which they are not acting as an operator. (Operators, for example, typically acquire use of vessels or aircraft, hire expedition staff, plan itineraries, and undertake other organizational responsibilities.) The rule provides nongovernmental operators with the specific requirements they need to meet in order to comply with the requirements of Article 8 and Annex I to the Protocol. The provisions of the Rule are intended to ensure that potential environmental effects of nongovernmental activities undertaken in Antarctica are appropriately identified and considered by the operator during the planning process and that to the extent practicable appropriate environmental safeguards which would mitigate or prevent adverse impacts on the Antarctic environment are identified by the operator. Persons subject to the Rule must prepare environmental documentation to support the operator’s determination regarding the level of environmental impact of the proposed expedition. The environmental document is submitted to the Office of Federal Activities (OFA). If the operator determines that an expedition may have: (1) Less than a minor or transitory impact, a Preliminary Environmental Review Memorandum (PERM) needs to be submitted no later than 180 days before the proposed departure to Antarctica; (2) no more than minor or transitory VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:20 Mar 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 impacts, an Initial Environmental Evaluation (IEE) needs to be submitted no later than 90 days before the proposed departure; or (3) more than minor or transitory impacts, a Comprehensive Environmental Evaluation (CEE) needs to be submitted. Environmental documents are reviewed by OFA, in consultation with the National Science Foundation and other interested Federal agencies. OFA notifies the public of document availability at: https://www.epa.gov/ international-cooperation/receiptenvironmental-impact-assessments-eiasregarding-nongovernmental. The types of nongovernmental activities currently being carried out are typically unlikely to have impacts that are more than minor or transitory, thus an IEE is the typical level of environmental documentation submitted. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Operators of nongovernmental expeditions organized or proceeding from the territory of the United States to Antarctica. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 8). Estimated number of respondents: 25 (total). Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 1,544 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $133,780 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is an increase of 327 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is the result of a change to the number of operators that the EPA anticipates will submit environmental documentation as well as the inclusion of a potential PERM, CEE and Emergency Report submitted by every three years.

SUMMARY: The Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM Bank), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to comment on the proposed information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Comments must be received on or before April 6, 2020, 2020 to be assured of consideration. ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted electronically on WWW.REGULATIONS.GOV or by mail to Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 725 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20038, Attn: OMB 3048–0003. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Export-Import Bank has made changes to the form to reflect an application process decoupled from the SBA’s export working capital program. EXIM will also be moving forward to an electronic application submission process, which results in a stand-alone application versus the previous joint application with the SBA. Therefore, all references and information previously required from the SBA have been removed. There is one material change in the application to reflect EXIM’s local cost support on short-term transactions, including working capital. Local costs are costs incurred in the buyer’s country (i.e., local delivery, installation, taxes), eligible for EXIM cover, provided that: U.S. content requirements are met; included within the contracts; do not exceed 15% of export contract; and no local goods are included. Therefore, three questions are added to the application: Are local costs to be included under the working capital loan facility; if yes, how much in terms of USD or percentage per contract or invoice; and what is the nature of the local costs to be supported? The application tool can be reviewed at: https://www.exim.gov/sites/default/ files/pub/pending/eib84–01.pdf. Title and Form Number: EIB 84–01 Application for Export Working Capital Guarantee.
