This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
This decision is made pursuant to Section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Public Law 89-651, 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301).

Docket Number: 02-009. Applicant: The University of Akron, Akron, OH 44325. Instrument: Shielded Room (Low Field Cage). Manufacturer: Magnetic Measurements Ltd., United Kingdom. Intended Use: See notice at 67 FR 18862, April 17, 2002.
Comments: None received. Decision: Approved. No instrument of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument, for such purposes as it is intended to be used, is being manufactured in the United States. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides: (1) A cage design allowing visibility of students making measurements inside, (2) very low (about 1% of ambient field) magnetic field space over a large area (up to 2 cubic meters) allowing room for several instruments and (3) ability to actively compensate for a changing magnetic field in the building using a 3-axis fluxgate magnetometer with a sensitivity of 3nT. A domestic manufacturer of similar equipment advised May 16, 2002 that (1) these capabilities are pertinent to the applicant's intended purpose and (2) it knows of no domestic instrument or apparatus of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument for the applicant's intended use.
We know of no other instrument or apparatus of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument which is being manufactured in the United States.Start Signature
