Download as PDF 76206 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 244 / Wednesday, December 20, 2006 / Rules and Regulations III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews A. Executive Order 12866 This action is classified as a final rule because it makes an amendment to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The amendment to the CFR is necessary to allow for a one-time extension to the 2006 reporting IUR period. This action does not impose any new requirements or amend substantive requirements. This action is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). B. Paperwork Reduction Act This final rule does not contain any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. C. Regulatory Flexibility Act Because this action does not impose any new requirements or amend the substantive requirements, EPA certifies this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities and there will be no adverse impact on small entities resulting from this action under section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act This action does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104–4). E. Executive Order 13132 The Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Executive Order 13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.’’ ‘‘Policies that have federalism implications’’ is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have ‘‘substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:07 Dec 19, 2006 Jkt 211001 various levels of government.’’ This action does not alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress. F. Executive Order 13175 IV. Congressional Review Act The Congressional Review Act, 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 the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information 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 rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). The Agency has determined that this rule does not have any ‘‘tribal implications’’ as described in Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 22951, November 6, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have tribal implications.’’ This final rule will not have substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this rule. Dated: December 15, 2006. James B. Gulliford, Assistant Administrator, Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances. G. Executive Order 13045 I List of Subjects in 40 CFR Part 710 Environmental protection, Chemicals, Hazardous materials, Inventory Update Reporting, IUR, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, TSCA. Therefore, 40 CFR chapter I is amended as follows: This action does not require OMB review or any other Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). H. Executive Order 13211 Because this final rule is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, this final rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). I. National Technology Transfer Advancement Act This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104–113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note).
