SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The NMFS Southeast Region manages the U.S. fisheries in the exclusive economic zone of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South Atlantic regions under multiple fishery management plans (FMPs). The regional fishery management councils prepare the FMPs pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). NMFS implements the regulations for the FMPs, which are located at 50 CFR part 622. The recordkeeping and reporting regulations located at 50 CFR part 622 form the basis for the information collection requirements that are currently approved under OMB Control Number 0648–0358. NMFS proposes to extend the information collections under 0648–0358 without change. Regulations at 50 CFR part 622 require that all federally permitted fishing vessels must be marked with the official identification number or some other form of identification. A vessel’s official number, under most regulations, must be displayed on the port and starboard sides of the deckhouse or hull, and on the weather deck. In addition, regulations for certain fisheries also require the display of the assigned color code for the vessel. The official number and color code identify each vessel and should be visible at distance from the sea and in the air. These markings provide law enforcement personnel with a means to monitor fishing, at-sea processing, and other related activities, as well as to ascertain whether the vessel’s observed activities are in accordance with those authorized for that vessel. The identifying official number is used by NMFS, the United States Coast Guard, and other marine agencies in issuing violations, prosecutions, and other enforcement actions. Vessels that are authorized for particular fisheries are readily identified, gear violations are more readily prosecuted, and this allows for more cost-effective enforcement. In addition to vessel marking, requirements that fishing gear be marked are essential to facilitate enforcement. The ability to link fishing gear to the vessel owner is crucial to enforcement of regulations issued under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens E:\FR\FM\19FEN1.SGM 19FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 32 / Friday, February 19, 2021 / Notices Act. The marking of fishing gear is also valuable in actions concerning damage, loss, and civil proceedings.

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. 7,534,790.

Box 1450, Alexandria, VA 22313– 1450; by fax marked to his attention at 571–273–7728; or by email to raul.tamayo@uspto.gov. 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 February 9, 2021, Correvio International Sa`rl, the patent owner of record, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for a third interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 7,534,790. The patent claims the human drug product vernakalant hydrochloride. The application for patent term extension indicates that New Drug Application (NDA) 22–034 was submitted to the Food and Drug SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10251 Administration (FDA) on December 19, 2006. 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 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 twiceextended expiration date of the patent, March 31, 2021, 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. 7,534,790 is granted for a period of one year from the extended expiration date of the patent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The NMFS Southeast Region manages the U.S. fisheries in the 
exclusive economic zone of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South 
Atlantic regions under multiple fishery management plans (FMPs). The 
regional fishery management councils prepare the FMPs pursuant to the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-
Stevens Act). NMFS implements the regulations for the FMPs, which are 
located at 50 CFR part 622.
    The recordkeeping and reporting regulations located at 50 CFR part 
622 form the basis for the information collection requirements that are 
currently approved under OMB Control Number 0648-0358. NMFS proposes to 
extend the information collections under 0648-0358 without change. 
Regulations at 50 CFR part 622 require that all federally permitted 
fishing vessels must be marked with the official identification number 
or some other form of identification. A vessel's official number, under 
most regulations, must be displayed on the port and starboard sides of 
the deckhouse or hull, and on the weather deck. In addition, 
regulations for certain fisheries also require the display of the 
assigned color code for the vessel. The official number and color code 
identify each vessel and should be visible at distance from the sea and 
in the air. These markings provide law enforcement personnel with a 
means to monitor fishing, at-sea processing, and other related 
activities, as well as to ascertain whether the vessel's observed 
activities are in accordance with those authorized for that vessel. The

Guard, and other marine agencies in issuing violations, prosecutions, 
and other enforcement actions. Vessels that are authorized for 
particular fisheries are readily identified, gear violations are more 
readily prosecuted, and this allows for more cost-effective
