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.
Pursuant to section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Pub.

Docket Number: 03-051. Applicant: National Renewable Energy Laboratory, 1617 Cole Boulevard, Golden, CO 80401. Instrument: Electron Microscope, Model Tecnai G2 20 TWIN. Manufacturer: FEI Company, the Netherlands. Intended Use: The instrument is intended to be used to study the structure and physical chemistry of biomass samples. The goal of these investigations is to better understand the structural and chemical properties and relate them to the susceptibility of biomass to enzyme digestion, and to characterize a variety of nano-structured materials such as quantum dot protein conjugates and polymeric supports for syngas conversion. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: November 13, 2003.
Docket Number: 03-052. Applicant: National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899.
