This matter constitutes an appeal of an ‘‘energy project’’ within the meaning of the CZMA regulations, see 15 CFR 930.123(c). Under the CZMA, the Secretary may override the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management’s objection on grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA, or is necessary in the interest of national security. To make the determination that the proposed activity is ‘‘consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA,’’ the Department must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the national interest as articulated in sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in a significant or substantial manner; (2) the national interest furthered by the proposed activity outweighs the activity’s adverse coastal effects, when those effects are considered separately or cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would permit the proposed activity to be conducted in a manner consistent with the enforceable policies of the applicable coastal management program. 15 CFR 930.121. To make the determination that the proposed activity is ‘‘necessary in the interest of national security,’’ the Secretary must find that a national defense or other national security interest would be significantly impaired if the proposed activity is not permitted to go forward as proposed. 15 CFR 930.122. On March 30, 2020, NOAA published a Federal Register Notice announcing closure of the appeal decision record. 85 FR 17539. Under the CZMA, a final decision on the appeal must be issued no later than 60 days after notice announcing closure of the decision record is published. 16 U.S.C. 1465(b)(3). This deadline may be extended, however, by publishing (within the 60-day period) a subsequent notice explaining why a decision cannot be issued within that time frame. 16 U.S.C. 1465(c)(1). In that event, a final decision must be issued no later than 15 days after the date of publication of the subsequent notice. 16 U.S.C. 1465(c)(2). This announcement provides notice that the deadline for issuing a decision on this appeal has been extended by 15 days. The additional time is needed to complete a review of the record and reach a decision. A decision on the federal consistency appeal will be issued no later than June 15, 2020.

ACTION: Notice of interim patent term extension. AGENCY: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued an order granting interim extension for a oneyear interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 9,364,354. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ali Salimi by telephone at (571) 272–0909; by mail marked to his attention and addressed to the Commissioner for Patents, Mail Stop Hatch-Waxman PTE, P.O.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim periods of up to one year if the regulatory review is anticipated to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On May 21, 2020, Neovasc Medical Ltd., the patent owner of record, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for an interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 9,364,354. The patent claims the catheter implantable device, Reducer®. The application for patent term extension indicates that a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) P190035 was submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on December 31, 2019. Review of the patent term extension application indicates that, except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32361 patent should be extended for one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because the regulatory review period will continue beyond the original expiration date of the patent, June 6, 2020, interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 9,364,354 is granted for a period of one year from the original expiration date of the patent.

Request; Native American Tribal Insignia Database

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will submit 
the following information collection request to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance in accordance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, on or after the date of 
publication of this notice. The USPTO invites the general public and 
other Federal agencies to comment on proposed, and continuing 
information collections, which helps the USPTO assess the impact of its 
information collection requirements and minimize the public's reporting 
burden. Public comments were previously requested via the Federal 
Register on March 16, 2020 during a 60-day comment period. This notice 
allows for an additional 30 days for public comments.

Commerce.

    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Extension and revision of a currently approved 
information collection.
    Number of Respondents: 5 respondents.
    Average Hours per Response: The USPTO estimates that a recognized 
Native American tribe will require an average of 1 hour to complete a

time to prepare the appropriate documents and submit the completed 
request to the USPTO.
    Burden Hours: 5 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Non-Hour Respondent Cost Burden: $38.
    Needs and Uses: The Trademark Law Treaty Implementation Act of 1998 
(Pub. L. 105-330, 302, 112 Stat. 3071) required the USPTO to study 
issues surrounding the protection of the official insignia of federally 
and state-recognized Native American tribes under trademark law. At the 
direction of Congress, the USPTO created a database containing the 
official insignia of recognized Native American tribes. This database 
is available at the USPTO's website, as part of the USPTO's Trademark 
Electronic Search System (TESS). This information collection is used by 
the USPTO to enter an official insignia submitted by a federally or 
state-recognized Native American tribe into the database.
    The USPTO database of official tribal insignias provides evidence 
of what a federally or state-recognized Native American tribe considers 
to be its official insignia. Section 2(a) of the Trademark Act, 15 
U.S.C. 1052(a), disallows the registration of marks that falsely 
suggest a connection with a non-sponsoring person or institution, 
including a Native American tribe. The database thereby assists 
trademark examining attorneys in their examination of applications for 
trademark registration by serving as a reference for determining the 
registrability of a mark that may falsely suggest a connection to the 
official insignia of a Native American tribe. The entry of an official 
insignia into the database does not confer any rights to the tribe that 
submitted the insignia, and entry is not the legal equivalent of 
registering the insignia as a trademark under 15 U.S.C. 1051 et seq.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
