Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. The NTTAA directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decides not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. This action does not involve technical standards. Therefore, the NTTAA does not apply to this rule. I.

ACTION: Final rule; technical correction. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of November 14, 2006, concerning amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 12(b) export notification regulations at subpart D of 40 CFR part 707. This document is being issued to correct a typographical error. DATES: This technical correction is effective January 16, 2007. In accordance with 40 CFR 23.5, this rule shall be promulgated for purposes of judicial review at 1 p.m. eastern daylight/standard time on December 12, 2006.

In addition to using regulations.gov, you may access this Federal Register document electronically through the EPA Internet under the ‘‘Federal Register’’ listings at http:// www.epa.gov/fedrgstr. II. What Does this Correction Do? This correction restores to the first sentence of the introductory text at 40 CFR 707.60(c)(2) the phrase ‘‘where such chemical substance or mixture is present in a concentration of less than 0.1% (by weight or volume).’’ The corrected first sentence of §707.60(c)(2) will now read: ‘‘No notice of export is required for the export of a chemical substance or mixture that is a known or potential human carcinogen where such chemical substance or mixture is present in a concentration of less than 0.1% (by weight or volume).’’ Without the correction to 40 CFR 707.60(c)(2), the rule does not have the effect, as clearly stated in the proposed rule and elsewhere in the preamble to the final rule, of establishing a de minimis level for reporting of carcinogens under TSCA section 12(b). A. Does this Action Apply to Me? III. Why is this Correction Issued as a Final Rule? Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this technical correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, for the reasons mentioned in Unit II. The missing phrase in the regulatory text of the final rule at 40 CFR 707.60(c)(2) appears in the regulatory text of the proposed rule as well as throughout the preamble of the final rule, such that the intent to include it in the regulatory text of the final rule is clear. The phrase was inadvertently left out of the regulatory text of the final rule during Agency editing and preparation of the final rule. EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be potentially affected by this action.

The Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. As with the final rule, since this technical correction is considered a rule under the CRA, EPA will submit a rule report to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

    The Agency included in the final rule a list of those who may be 
potentially affected by this action. If you have questions regarding 
the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the 
technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

B. How Can I Access Electronic Copies of this Document and Other 
Related Information?

    In addition to using regulations.gov, you may access this Federal 
Register document electronically through the EPA Internet under the 
``Federal Register'' listings at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr.

II. What Does this Correction Do?

    This correction restores to the first sentence of the introductory 
text at 40 CFR 707.60(c)(2) the phrase ``where such chemical substance 
or mixture is present in a concentration of less than 0.1% (by weight 
or volume).'' The corrected first sentence of Sec. 707.60(c)(2) will 
now read: ``No notice of export is required for the export of a 
chemical substance or mixture that is a known or potential human 
carcinogen where such chemical substance or mixture is present in a 
concentration of less than 0.1% (by weight or volume).'' Without the 
correction to 40 CFR 707.60(c)(2), the rule does not have the effect, 
as clearly stated in the proposed rule and elsewhere in the preamble to 
the final rule, of establishing a de minimis level for reporting of 
carcinogens under TSCA section 12(b).

III. Why is this Correction Issued as a Final Rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary 
to the public interest, the agency may issue a final rule without 
providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has 
determined that there is good cause for making this technical 
correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment, 
for the reasons mentioned in Unit II. The missing phrase in the 
regulatory text of the final rule at 40 CFR 707.60(c)(2) appears in the 
regulatory text of the proposed rule as well as throughout the preamble 
of the final rule, such that the intent to include it in the regulatory 
text of the final rule is clear. The phrase was inadvertently left out 
of the regulatory text of the final rule during Agency editing and 
preparation of the final rule. EPA finds that this constitutes good 
cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).

IV. Do Any of the Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Apply to this 
Action?

    No. This document is a technical correction to a recently issued 
final rule and does not impose any new requirements. EPA's compliance 
with the statutes and Executive orders for the underlying final rule is 
discussed in Unit VII. of the final rule that was issued on November 
14, 2006 (71 FR 66234, at 66243).

V. Will EPA Submit this Final Rule to Congress and the Comptroller 
General?

    Yes. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) 
generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency 
promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy 
of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller 
General of the United States. As with the final rule, since this 
technical correction is considered a rule under the CRA, EPA will 
submit a rule report to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of 
Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior 
to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not 
a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
