performance of motor vehicles and related equipment under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. The Associate Administrator, Motor Vehicle Programs, is responsible for implementing the motor vehicle safety programs to reduce the occurrence of highway crashes, reduce the severity of injuries in such crashes, and improve survivability and injury recovery by better post-crash measures. Safety standards and regulations are issued which prescribe safety features and levels of safety-related performance for motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment. The first of these standards was issued in 1966. Total number of standards issued is now 43, plus 11 regulations. These standards appear in Chapter V of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. A complete technical document of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and Regulations is published and updated by the U.S. Government Printing Office.

Manufacturers are required to furnish certification of conformity. The Administration conducts an intensive testing program to determine whether vehicles and equipment comply with applicable standards. It also investigates reports of safety-related defects not covered by a standard, and can require a manufacturer of motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment to take certain actions as to such defects.

The Administration cooperates with the National Motor Vehicle Safety Advisory Council, which is made up of public and industry representatives, and consults with them on vehicle safety standards.

The Bureau of the Mint, Department of the Treasury, develops and administers the technical standards for the United States coinage. Nominal diameter and weight standards are established by statute (31 U.S.C. 317 and 391). Deviations allowed in the weight of minor coins are established by 31 U.S.C. 350. Thickness standards, and other tolerances are developed by the Office of Technology, Office of the Director.

These standards are only imposed internally on the coin manufacturing processes. However, their importance in the development of coin handling and coin operated equipment so commonly found throughout the nation warrants their publication upon request. Written inquiries should be directed to the Director of the Mint, and to the Attention of Office of Technology.

In 1941 U.S. Customs authorized the use by the molasses trade of a direct-pressure type mercury gage, such as the Pneumercator, for measuring molasses in tanks.

This authorization was contingent on having the gage certified to show corrections, if any, to the scale readings at various points.

Until January 1, 1960 this calibration was performed by the National Bureau of Standards. On or about that date NBS discontinued this service, and thereafter the U.S. Customs Service Laboratory at Baltimore, Maryland, assumed the responsibility.

At the present time the Laboratory certifies fewer than 10 Pneumercator gages per year. Calibration is performed on receipt of the unit accompanied by an open purchase order. The fee includes charges for labor, handling, and overhead. It varies per gage, depending upon the number of units submitted at one time, from $250 to $300.

Customs has no active standards committees or new projects underway or under consideration.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is the agency with primary responsibility for enforcement of Federal laws relating to the production, storage and taxation of alcohol and tobacco products, firearms and explosives.

Standards have been established by the Bureau's Scientific Services Division, which apply to hydrometers, thermometers and William's test tubes supplied to the Bureau for testing the alcoholic content of beverages. Although these standards are not usually published, they are supplied to bidders for manufacturing contracts.

In cooperation with various industry segments, ATF prescribes and enforces standards of identity for alcoholic beverages. These standards are established by regulations applicable to all such beverages produced in or imported into the United States. Standards for the various classes of wines are published at 27 CFR Part 4; those for distilled spirits are pub. lished at 27 CFR Part 5.

The Scientific Services Division sets specifications for ethyl alcohol, denatured alcohol, proprietory sol. vents and special industrial solvents. These are incorporated as Federal Specifications O-E-760B

0 issued by the General Services Administration. Through regulations issued by ATF at 26 CFR Parts 211 and 212, these standards are applicable to the production of these products in the United States.

The standards of identity for small cigars, as defined in 26 U.S.C. 5702 and in regulations issued by ATF at 26 CFR Part 270, are further established by laboratory test procedures set up by the Scientific Services Division. These analytical tests are utilized to enforce these standards for small cigars, as differentiated from cigarettes, upon all such products consumed within the United States.

Additionally, the Bureau sets specifications relating to construction of storerooms for explosive materials. These specifications are published in 26 CFR Part 181.

Washington, D.C. 20420

The standardization activities of the Veterans Administration (VA) are administered by the Safety, Occupational Health and Fire Protection Division and have been in effect for many years. The Division establishes VA standards relative to safety, occupational health and fire protection, as supplements to adopted national standards. Currently there are fourteen VA standards: Carpet Safety Requirements, Automatic Fire Extinguishing Protection, Air Conditioning Systems, Magnetic Door Locks, Liquid Oxygen Walker Units, Trash Containers, Exit Through ICU or CCU, Storage, Preparation and Consumption of Food and Beverages by Employees in Places of Work, Food Service Equipment and Facilities, Lasers, Pipetting in Hospital Laboratories, Needle/Syringe Handling Procedures, Electron Microscopes, and Microwave Ovens.

There are three new standards projects under consideration: Noise, Bathtubs, and Laboratory Safety Equipment-Safety Showers and Eyewashes. The VÁ Policy Manual MP-3, Part III lists the current standards.

5.1. Association Index By Subject Heading Areas

This is a listing of associations by subject heading areas. Under each of the subject areas the organizations are listed in alphabetical order, being classified in the broad sense of the word. The subject terms are considered generic in scope but relevant to the (1) field and/or subject, including existing subclasses (e.g., Engineering-electrical, civil, mechanical, min. ing, and aeronautical, etc.) or type of organization including their industry, technology, trade, or profession; (2) concern, cause, interest, or activity of the group; and (3) applicable products, materials, systems, services, or related aspects and applications. Subject fields are sometimes grouped into one subject heading area and in some instances, such as under the terms Agriculture (subject area 2), and Food, of Food and Drug (4); and Engineering (15), and Industrial (Technical and Trade) (18), the classifica. tions are intended as a further breakdown even though there is a subject overlap. Subclassification is determined by the reader either by consideration of the organization's name, or by reading the summary
