Office of Oceans Affairs; New Conservation Measures for Antarctic Fishing Under the Auspices of CCAMLR
Document Number: 06-503
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-01-26
Agency: Department of State
At its Twenty-Fourth Meeting in Hobart, Tasmania, from October 24 to November 4, 2005, the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), of which the United States is a member, adopted conservation measures, pending countries' approval, pertaining to fishing in the CCAMLR Convention Area. All the measures were agreed upon in accordance with Article IX of the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources. Measures adopted restrict overall catches of certain species of fish and crabs, restrict fishing in certain areas, specify implementation and inspection obligations supporting the Catch Documentation Scheme of Contracting Parties, and promote compliance with CCAMLR measures by non-Contracting Party vessels. This notice includes the full text of the conservation measures adopted at the Twenty-Fourth meeting of CCAMLR. For all of the conservation measures in force, see the CCAMLR Web site at http://www.ccamlr.org. This notice, therefore, together with the U.S. regulations referenced under the Supplementary Information, provides a comprehensive register of all current U.S. obligations under CCAMLR.
Title: Statement of Policy on J-1 Flight Training Programs
Document Number: E6-821
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-01-24
Agency: Department of State
The Department hereby announces its policy regarding flight training programs, which are governed by the Department's Exchange Visitor Program regulations appearing in 22 CFR part 62. Since 1949 the Department has designated private sector and governmental entities to conduct training programs for eligible foreign nationals. For the past twenty years, flight training activities have been authorized and currently, eight organizations facilitate the entry into the United States of some 350 foreign nationals yearly for the purpose of flight training. Flight training programs utilizing the J visa are regulated by the Department under the authority of the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended (Fulbright- Hays Act), 22 U.S.C. 2451 et seq.; the Immigration and Naturalization Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(J); the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act of 1998, Public Law 105-277; as well as other statutory enactments, Reorganization Plans and Executive Orders. Regulations dealing specifically with flight training programs appear at 22 CFR 62.22(n). Certain flight training programs also utilize the M visa, which is regulated and administered by the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Regulations governing the M visa appear at 8 CFR 214.2(m). The USA Patriot Act of 2001 (``The Uniting and Strengthening Act By Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism''), Public Law 107-56, mandated that the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Education, and the Attorney General, all take cognizance of and undertake certain actions regarding flight training programs. The Department of State has determined that it does not have the expertise and resources to fully monitor flight training programs and insure their compliance with the national security concerns expressed in the Patriot Act. Consequently, as a matter of policy, the Department of State will henceforth not designate any new J visa flight training programs, nor will it permit currently-designated flight training programs to expand their programs, pending a determination as to which Federal agency ultimately will be tasked with the administering and monitoring of such programs. Redesignation of programs will continue as required by existing regulations.
Title: Statement of Policy on J-1 Agriculture Training Programs
Document Number: E6-820
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-01-24
Agency: Department of State
The Department hereby announces its policy regarding agriculture training programs, which are governed by the Department's Exchange Visitor Program regulations appearing in 22 CFR part 62. Since 1949 the Department has permitted designated sponsors to conduct programs designed to train individuals in many industrial, professional, agricultural, and other occupational skills. Training programs utilizing the J visa are regulated by the Department under the authority of the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended (Fulbright-Hays Act), 22 U.S.C. 2451 et seq.; the Immigration and Naturalization Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(J); the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act of 1998, Public Law 105- 277; as well as other statutory enactments, Reorganization Plans and Executive Orders. Regulations dealing with training programs appear at 22 CFR 62.22. In 2005, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) examined the Department's management of the J visa Summer Work Travel and Trainee programs to ensure that only authorized activities are carried out under the programs and to identify potential risks of the programs and the data available to the Department to assess those risks. (``Stronger Action Needed to Improve Oversight and Assess Risks of the Summer Work Travel and Trainee Categories of the Exchange Visitor Program,'' GAO- 06-106, October 2005.) Among other things, the GAO Report found that there was a potential that the trainee programs could be misused as employment programs and that trainees could be exploited by employers or other third parties. Agricultural training programs were found to be particularly problematic because of the potential for fraud. Abuses of the training regulations were not hidden; there were cases where there was not even an attempt to represent jobs as training, and which certain employers referred to their program participants as employees, rather than trainees. In one case cited, four trainees were placed with dairy farms that had an agreement with the program sponsor. Only one of the trainees had a firm grasp of English, and only one of the four farms participating in the program had a structured training plan. There were questions as to whether such programs were merely utilizing trainees for cheap labor and whether the trainees were simply receiving enough training to perform their work. (GAO Report, pp. 17, 21). The Department has taken steps to address these concerns. Among other things, the Department has consulted with the Department of Labor and the Department of Agriculture in order to develop ways to better monitor agricultural training programs and to determine whether such agriculture training programs are subject to, and if so, whether they are in compliance with, existing statutes such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 201, et seq., and the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers Protection Act, Public Law 97-470, 29 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Pending the Department's resolution of these outstanding issues, the Department of State will not designate any new J visa agricultural training programs, nor will it permit currently-designated training programs offering agricultural training to expand the agricultural training component of their programs. Redesignation of programs will continue as required by existing regulations.
