Emergency Exemption: Issuance

    On 14 June 1996, a permit, US 816181, was issued to the Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia to import 20 tissue 
samples from one male chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) that died at Gombe 
National Park, Tanzania, for diagnostic virology. The 30-day public 
comment period required by the Endangered Species Act was waived in 
accordance with section 10(c) of the Endangered Species Act. The Fish & 
Wildlife Service determined that an emergency affecting the health and 
life of other chimpanzees existed and no reasonable alternative was 
available to the applicant.
    Written data or comments should be submitted to the Director, U.S. 
Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Management Authority, 4401 North 
Fairfax Drive, Room 430, Arlington, Virginia 22203 and must be received 
by the Director within 30 days of the date of this publication.
    Documents and other information submitted with these applications 
are available for review, subject to the requirements of the Privacy 
Act and Freedom of Information Act, by any party who submits a written 
request for a copy of such documents within 30 days of the date of
