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.
The Department of Commerce has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Title: Surf Clam/Ocean Quahog Transfer Log.
Form Number(s): None.
OMB Approval Number: 0648-0238.
Type of Request: Regular submission.
Burden Hours: 52.
Number of Respondents: 206.
Average Hours Per Response: 5 minutes.
Needs and Uses: Persons holding Individual Transferable Quotas (ITQs) in the surf clam/ocean quahog fishery are annually issued a quota for harvest. To facilitate enforcement and tracking, sequentially numbered tags are issued to each owner on an annual basis and all cages of product must be tagged, with tag use reported by both the harvesting vessel and the purchasing dealer. Individual allocations are transferable, and owners may transfer their allocation on a permanent basis or may transfer tags to other vessel owners to use on a temporary basis. This transferability means that the allocation ownership changes constantly, and the ITQ Allocation Transfer Form is used by allocation holders to register these transfers with the National Marine Fisheries Service. Once processed, new allocation permits are issued and all databases are updated. The information registered is used for enforcement purposes.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations, individuals or households.
Frequency: On occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Mandatory.
OMB Desk Officer: David Rostker, (202) 395-3897.
