SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1992, OGE issued a final rule setting forth uniform Standards of Ethical Conduct and an interim final rule on financial disclosure, and in 1996 issued a final rule on financial interests, all for executive branch departments and agencies of the Federal Government and their employees. Those three executive branch-wide regulations, as corrected and amended, are codified at 5 CFR parts 2634, 2635 and 2640. Together those regulations have superseded the old USIBWC regulations on employee responsibilities and conduct, which have been codified at 22 CFR part 1100 (and were based on prior OPM standards). Accordingly, the USIBWC is removing its superseded regulations and adding in place thereof a new section containing residual cross-references to the new provisions at 5 CFR parts 2634, 2635 and 2640. In addition, the USIBWC is including in that section a reference to the separate, specific executive branch provisions regarding gambling, safeguarding the examination PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 process and conduct prejudicial to the Government which are set forth in 5 CFR part 735, as amended and reissued by OPM in 1992.

In addition to using EDOCKET (http:// www.epa.gov/edocket/), you may access this Federal Register document electronically through the EPA Internet under the ‘‘Federal Register’’ listings at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/. A frequently updated electronic version of 40 CFR part 180 is available on E-CFR Beta Site Two at http:// www.gpoaccess.gov/ecfr/. II. Background and Statutory Findings EPA, on its own initiative, in accordance with sections 408(e) and408(l)(6) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), 21 U.S.C. 346a, is establishing a time-limited tolerance for residues of the herbicide dimethenamid-p, 1-(RS)-2-chloro-N-[(1methyl-2-methoxy)ethyl]-N-(2,4dimethylthien-3-yl)-acetamide in or on squash, winter at 0.01 parts per million (ppm). Dimethenamid-p is a 90:10, S:R mixture of dimethenamid isomers, and is already included in the existing tolerances codified at 40 CFR 180.464. This tolerance will expire and is revoked on June 30, 2009. EPA will publish a document in the Federal Register to remove the revoked tolerance from the Code of Federal Regulations. Section 408(l)(6) of FFDCA requires EPA to establish a time-limited tolerance or exemption from the requirement for a tolerance for pesticide chemical residues in food that will result from the use of a pesticide under an emergency exemption granted by EPA under section 18 of FIFRA. Such tolerances can be established without providing notice or period for public comment. EPA does not intend for its actions on section 18-related tolerances to set binding precedents for the application of section 408 of FFDCA and the new safety standard to other tolerances and exemptions. Section 408(e) of FFDCA allows EPA to establish a tolerance or an exemption E:\FR\FM\03MYR1.SGM 03MYR1

COMMISSION

22 CFR Part 1100


Employee Responsibilities and Conduct; Removal of Superseded 
Regulations and Addition of Residual Cross-References

AGENCY: United States Section of the International Boundary and Water 
Commission (USIBWC).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The United States Section of the International Boundary and 
Water Commission is repealing its superseded old employee conduct 
regulations, which have been replaced by the executive branch Standards 
of Ethical Conduct, financial disclosure and financial interests 
regulations issued by the Office of Government Ethics (OGE). In place 
of its old conduct regulations, the USIBWC is adding a section of 
residual cross-references to those new provisions as well as to certain 
executive branch conduct rules promulgated by the Office of Personnel 
Management (OPM).

DATES: Effective Date: June 2, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tony R. Chavez, Designated Agency 
Ethics Official, United States International Boundary and Water 
Commission, 4171 N. Mesa, Suite C-100, El Paso, Texas, Telephone, 915-
832-4111, Fax 915-832-4196.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1992, OGE issued a final rule setting 
forth uniform Standards of Ethical Conduct and an interim final rule on 
financial disclosure, and in 1996 issued a final rule on financial 
interests, all for executive branch departments and agencies of the 
Federal Government and their employees. Those three executive branch-
wide regulations, as corrected and amended, are codified at 5 CFR parts 
2634, 2635 and 2640. Together those regulations have superseded the old 
USIBWC regulations on employee responsibilities and conduct, which have 
been codified at 22 CFR part 1100 (and were based on prior OPM 
standards). Accordingly, the USIBWC is removing its superseded 
regulations and adding in place thereof a new section containing 
residual cross-references to the new provisions at 5 CFR parts 2634, 
2635 and 2640. In addition, the USIBWC is including in that section a 
reference to the separate, specific executive branch provisions 
regarding gambling, safeguarding the examination process and conduct 
prejudicial to the Government which are set forth in 5 CFR part 735, as 
amended and reissued by OPM in 1992. Those specific branch-wide 
restrictions are not covered in OGE's Standards of Ethical Conduct 
regulation; furthermore, they are self-executing and do not require any 
department or agency republication.

Matters of Regulatory Procedure

Administrative Procedure Act

    As Designated Agency Ethics Official of the USIBWC, I have found, 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2) and (b), that the general requirements for 
proposed rule making and opportunity for public comment are not 
applicable as to this final rule since it relates solely to agency 
management and personnel as well as agency organization, practice and 
procedure.
