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. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Raul Tamayo by telephone at 571–272–7728; by mail marked to his attention and addressed to the Commissioner for Patents, Mail Stop Hatch-Waxman PTE, P.O. 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: The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., sets forth a national environmental policy to harmonize environmental, economic, and social goals, and is a cornerstone of the Nation’s efforts to protect the environment. See 42 U.S.C. 4321, 4331. NEPA also created the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), 42 U.S.C. 4342, which oversees its implementation. NEPA requires Federal agencies to consider the environmental effects of its proposed actions and involve the public in its decision-making processes. CEQ’s NEPA implementing regulations at 40 CFR parts 1500 through 1508 set forth the procedures for agencies to comply with NEPA. Additionally, CEQ issues guidance to agencies on how to fulfil NEPA’s mandates. See 40 CFR 1506.7. Many projects and programs proposed, funded, or approved by Federal agencies have the potential to emit or sequester greenhouse gases (GHGs), and may be affected by climate change. Federal courts consistently have held that NEPA requires agencies to disclose and consider climate impacts in their reviews. See, e.g., Ctr. for Biological Diversity v. Nat’l Highway Traffic Safety Admin., 538 F.3d 1172 (9th Cir. 2008). On March 31, 2016, CEQ issued ‘‘Final Guidance for Federal Departments and Agencies on Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and the Effects of Climate Change in National Environmental Policy Act Reviews’’ (2016 GHG Guidance) to help agencies with this requirement. 81 FR 51866 (Aug. 5, 2016). E.O. 13873, ‘‘Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth,’’ directed CEQ to withdraw this guidance. E.O. 13783, 82 FR 16093 (Mar. 31, 2017). CEQ withdrew the guidance on April 5, 2017. 82 FR 16576. CEQ then proposed for public comment, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 but never finalized, ‘‘Draft National Environmental Policy Act Guidance on Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions’’ (2019 Draft GHG Guidance). 84 FR 30097 (June 26, 2019), RIN 0331– ZA03. On January 20, 2021, President Biden issued E.O. 13990, ‘‘Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,’’ to establish a national policy ‘‘to empower our workers and communities; promote and protect our public health and the environment; and conserve our national treasures and monuments, places that secure our national memory.’’ 86 FR 7037 (Jan. 25, 2021). Section 7(e) directs CEQ to rescind the 2019 Draft GHG Guidance and review, revise, and update its 2016 GHG Guidance. In accordance with this E.O., CEQ is rescinding the 2019 Draft GHG Guidance. The withdrawal of this guidance does not change any law, regulation, or other legally binding requirement. CEQ will address in a separate notice its review of and any appropriate revisions and updates to the 2016 GHG Guidance. In the interim, agencies should consider all available tools and resources in assessing GHG emissions and climate change effects of their proposed actions, including, as appropriate and relevant, the 2016 GHG Guidance. For more information on NEPA and Federal agency compliance with NEPA, please see nepa.gov. Jomar Maldonado, Associate Director for the National Environmental Policy Act.
