The Federal Trade Commission (``FTC'' or ``Commission'') has completed its review, pursuant to a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (``SNPR''), of the testing procedures for multichannel ``home theater'' amplifiers under the Trade Regulation Rule Relating to Power Output Claims for Amplifiers Utilized in Home Entertainment Products (``Rule'' or ``Amplifier Rule'').

The Commission, however, will continue to enforce the other provisions of the Rule with regard to multichannel amplifiers.

This proposed revision is intended to restore the level of oversight originally required by our rules.
Notice of Opportunity for Comment on Model Safety Evaluation for Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF) Traveler To Provide Actions for One Steam Supply to Turbine Driven AFW/EFW Pump Inoperable Using the Consolidated Line Item Improvement Process
Notice is hereby given that the staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has prepared a model safety evaluation (SE) relating to proposed changes to Actions in the Standard Technical Specifications (STS) relating to One Steam Supply to Turbine Driven Auxiliary Feedwater / Emergency Feedwater (AFW/EFW) Pump Inoperable.

Licensees of nuclear power reactors to which the models apply can request amendments conforming to the models. In such a request, a licensee should confirm the applicability of the model LAR, model SE and NSHC determination to its plant.
