Semiannual Agenda of Regulations

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Commerce.

ACTION: April 1994 regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: In compliance with Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 entitled 
``Regulatory Planning and Review'' and the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(Pub. L. 96-354), the Department of Commerce, in April and October of 
each year, publishes in the Federal Register an agenda of regulations 
under development or review over the next 12 months. Rulemaking actions 
are grouped according to prerulemaking, proposed rules, final rules, 
and rulemaking actions completed since the October 1993 agenda. The 
purpose of the agenda is to provide information to the public on 
regulations currently under review, being proposed, or issued by the 
Department. The agenda is intended to facilitate comments and views by 
interested members of the public.

    The Department's April 1994 regulatory agenda includes 
regulatory activities that are expected to be conducted during the 
period April 1, 1994, through March 31, 1995.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

Specific: For additional information about specific regulatory actions 
listed in the agenda, contact the individual identified as the contact 
person.

General: Comments or inquiries of a general nature about the agenda 
should be directed to Michael A. Levitt, Assistant General Counsel for 
Legislation and Regulation, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 
20230; telephone: 202-482-0846.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E.O. 12866 requires agencies to publish an 
agenda of those regulations that are under consideration pursuant to 
this order. By memorandum of December 14, 1993, the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) issued guidelines and procedures for the 
preparation and publication of the April 1994 Unified Agenda of Federal 
Regulations. The Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 602(a), requires 
agencies to publish, in April and October of each year, a regulatory 
flexibility agenda which contains a brief description of the subject 
area of any rule which is likely to have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities.

Explanation of Information Contained in the Agenda

    Within the Department, the Office of the Secretary and various 
operating units may issue regulations. Operating units, such as the 
Economic Development Administration, the Bureau of Export 
Administration, the International Trade Administration, the 
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Patent and 
Trademark Office, issue the greatest share of the Department's 
regulations.

    A large number of regulatory actions reported in the agenda are 
proposed or final Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 
issued by NIST under Public Law 100-235. FIPS consist of standards 
and guidelines to improve Federal Government use and management of 
computers and information technology. The standards, while often of 
great use to industry and the public, apply only to the Federal 
Government. In developing the standards and guidelines and in 
providing technical guidance and coordination to Federal agencies, 
NIST works closely with private industry standard-setting 
organizations.

    Another large number of regulatory actions reported in the 
agenda deal with fishery management programs of NOAA's National 
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). To avoid repetition of programs 
and definitions, as well as to provide some understanding of the 
technical and institutional elements of the NMFS programs, a 
section on ``Explanation of Information Contained in NMFS 
Regulatory Entries'' is provided below.

Explanation of Information Contained in NMFS Regulatory Entries

    The Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976 
(16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.) (Act) governs the management of fisheries 
within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The EEZ refers to those 
waters from the outer edge of the State boundaries, generally 3 
nautical miles, to a distance of 200 nautical miles. Fishery 
Management Plans (FMPs) are to be prepared for fisheries which 
require conservation and management measures. Regulations 
implementing these FMPs regulate domestic fishing and foreign 
fishing where permitted. Foreign fishing can be conducted in a 
fishery for which there is no FMP only if a preliminary fishery 
management plan has been issued to govern that foreign fishing. 
Under the Act, eight Regional Fishery Management Councils 
(Councils) prepare FMPs or amendments to FMPs for fisheries within 
their respective areas. In the development of such plans or 
amendments and their implementing regulations, the Councils are 
required by law to conduct public hearings on the draft plans and 
to consider the use of alternative means of regulating.

    The Council process for developing FMPs and amendments makes it 
difficult for NMFS to determine the significance and timing of some 
regulatory actions under consideration by the Councils at the time 
the semiannual regulatory agenda is published.

    The DOC April 1994 regulatory agenda follows.
