Background This proposed rule updates, streamlines, and clarifies FPMR part 101–42 and moves the part into the FMR as part 102–40. This proposed rule also removes §§ 101–45.001, 101– 45.002, and 101–45.004. The subject matter of these sections is addressed in section 102–40.190 (disposal of items requiring demilitarization); section 102– 40.50 (handling of property reported to GSA so as to preserve civilian utility as far as possible); section 102–40.220 (disposal of gold as a precious metal); and section 102–40.135 (disposal of ATVs). In addition, this proposed rule removes section 101–45.003 regarding vehicle reconditioning. That section PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 25723 provides guidance that the Federal fleet community considers standard business practices, and is more prescriptive of specific tasks than is intended by this Governmentwide policy regulation. The proposed rule is written in a plain language question and answer format. This style uses an active voice, shorter sentences, and pronouns. A question and its answer combine to establish a rule. The employee and the agency must follow the language contained in both the question and its answer. Proposed FMR part 102–40 includes the following specific changes from FPMR part 101–42: 1. Proposed section 102–40.30 includes the following terms and definitions not found in section 101– 42.001: Ammunition Commerce Control List Item (CCLI) Demilitarization Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) Medical devices Precious metal 2. Proposed section 102–40.95 revises FPMR section 101–42.401, Sales responsibilities for hazardous material, by allowing agencies to sell property with special handling requirements. 3. Proposed section 102–40.150 has special requirements for handling asbestos products. 4. Proposed section 102–40.140 introduces the topic of disposal of ammunition which does not appear in part 101–42. The disposition of ammunition and ammunition components are combined in this part 102–40. A new policy contained in part 102–40 allows the sale of ammunition and ammunition components to activities licensed to perform manufacturing/ demanufacturing/ remanufacturing, or licensed to recover basic material content of the ammunition or ammunition components. Expended ammunition cartridge cases may be transferred or donated when the recipient certifies that the cartridge case will be reloaded and used only for law enforcement purposes. 5. Proposed section 102–40.195 has special requirements for handling Commerce Control List items. 6. Proposed part 102–40 incorporates topics that appeared in 41 CFR part 101–45; specifically, the provisions appearing at section 101–45.001, ‘‘Demilitarization and decontamination’’; section 101–45.002, ‘‘Gold’’; and section 101–45.004, ‘‘All terrain vehicles.’’ The subject matter of these sections is addressed in section 102–40.190 (disposal of items requiring demilitarization); section 102–40.50 E:\FR\FM\07MYP1.SGM 07MYP1 25724 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 87 / Monday, May 7, 2007 / Proposed Rules (handling of property reported to GSA so as to preserve civilian utility as far as possible); section 102–40.220 (disposal of gold as a precious metal); and section 102–40.135 (disposal of ATVs). This proposed rule removes section 101–45.003 regarding vehicle reconditioning. That section provides guidance that the Federal fleet community considers standard business practices, and is more prescriptive of specific tasks than is intended by this Governmentwide policy regulation. 7. Proposed part 102–40 is less prescriptive. It is GSA’s intention to use these FMR regulations to describe ‘‘what’’ is to be accomplished, not ‘‘how’’ to perform a specific task. B. Executive Order 12866 GSA has determined that this proposed rule is not a significant rule for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993.

(a) Munitions List Items (MLIs) are listed in 22 CFR part 121. A system of demilitarization codes identifies the extent of alteration or destruction necessary when transferring or selling MLIs. The appropriate code is normally assigned to items when they enter the DOD supply system. These items may require demilitarization when issued to any non-DOD entity, and will require Department of State approval and appropriate licensing when exported from the U.S. Refer to DOD 4160.21–M– 1 (Change No. 1) for a complete description of the program and the requirements to be followed. The manual is available from the Defense Logistics Agency, 8725 John J. Kingman Road, Fort Belvoir, VA 22060; or electronically at http://www.dla.mil/ dlaps/dod/416021m/guide.asp. (b) When disposing of MLIs, you must perpetuate these demilitarization codes; alert those to whom you are transferring or selling property that the item may require demilitarization; and perform any required demilitarization, or provide any documentation or certifications in accordance with the DOD demilitarization manual, DOD 4160.21–M–1 (Change No. 1). In accordance with 40 U.S.C. 113(e)(6), materials acquired for the national stockpile, the supplemental stockpile, or materials or equipment acquired under section 303 of the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2093), are not covered by the Federal Management Regulation. The policy covering the disposal of these assets is found at 50 U.S.C. 98d and 98e. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS § 102–40.195 How do we handle Commerce Control List Items (CCLIs)?

Federal Management Regulation; FPMR Case 2003-101-1; FMR Case 
2003-102-4, Disposition of Personal Property with Special Handling 
Requirements

AGENCY: Office of Governmentwide Policy, General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is proposing to amend the 
Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) by revising coverage on 
the hazardous and certain categories of personal property and moving it 
into the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) addressing all types of 
property requiring special handling. A cross-reference is added to the 
FPMR to direct readers to the coverage in the FMR. The FMR coverage is 
written in plain language to provide agencies with updated regulatory 
material that is easy to read and understand.

DATES: Interested parties should submit comments in writing on or 
before June 6, 2007 to be considered in the formulation of a final 
rule.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments identified by FPMR case 2003-101-1 by any of

(202) 501-3828. Please cite FPMR Case 2003-101-1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    This proposed rule updates, streamlines, and clarifies FPMR part 
101-42 and moves the part into the FMR as part 102-40. This proposed 
rule also removes Sec. Sec.  101-45.001, 101-45.002, and 101-45.004. 
The subject matter of these sections is addressed in section 102-40.190 
(disposal of items requiring demilitarization); section 102-40.50 
(handling of property reported to GSA so as to preserve civilian 
utility as far as possible); section 102-40.220 (disposal of gold as a 
precious metal); and section 102-40.135 (disposal of ATVs).
    In addition, this proposed rule removes section 101-45.003 
regarding vehicle reconditioning. That section provides guidance that 
the Federal fleet community considers standard business practices, and 
is more prescriptive of specific tasks than is intended by this 
Governmentwide policy regulation.
    The proposed rule is written in a plain language question and 
answer format. This style uses an active voice, shorter sentences, and 
pronouns. A question and its answer combine to establish a rule. The 
employee and the agency must follow the language contained in both the 
question and its answer.
    Proposed FMR part 102-40 includes the following specific changes 
from FPMR part 101-42:
    1. Proposed section 102-40.30 includes the following terms and 
definitions not found in section 101-42.001:
    Ammunition
    Commerce Control List Item (CCLI)
    Demilitarization
    Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
    Medical devices
    Precious metal
    2. Proposed section 102-40.95 revises FPMR section 101-42.401, 
Sales responsibilities for hazardous material, by allowing agencies to 
sell property with special handling requirements.
    3. Proposed section 102-40.150 has special requirements for 
handling asbestos products.
    4. Proposed section 102-40.140 introduces the topic of disposal of 
ammunition which does not appear in part 101-42. The disposition of 
ammunition and ammunition components are combined in this part 102-40. 
A new policy contained in part 102-40 allows the sale of ammunition and 
ammunition components to activities licensed to perform manufacturing/ 
demanufacturing/remanufacturing, or licensed to recover basic material 
content of the ammunition or ammunition components. Expended ammunition 
cartridge cases may be transferred or donated when the recipient 
certifies that the cartridge case will be reloaded and used only for 
law enforcement purposes.
    5. Proposed section 102-40.195 has special requirements for 
handling Commerce Control List items.
    6. Proposed part 102-40 incorporates topics that appeared in 41 CFR 
part 101-45; specifically, the provisions appearing at section 101-
45.001, ``Demilitarization and decontamination''; section 101-45.002, 
``Gold''; and section 101-45.004, ``All terrain vehicles.'' The subject 
matter of these sections is addressed in section 102-40.190 (disposal 
of items requiring demilitarization); section 102-40.50

[[Page 25724]]

(handling of property reported to GSA so as to preserve civilian 
utility as far as possible); section 102-40.220 (disposal of gold as a 
precious metal); and section 102-40.135 (disposal of ATVs).
    This proposed rule removes section 101-45.003 regarding vehicle 
reconditioning. That section provides guidance that the Federal fleet 
community considers standard business practices, and is more 
prescriptive of specific tasks than is intended by this Governmentwide 
policy regulation.
    7. Proposed part 102-40 is less prescriptive. It is GSA's intention 
to use these FMR regulations to describe ``what'' is to be 
accomplished, not ``how'' to perform a specific task.

B. Executive Order 12866

    GSA has determined that this proposed rule is not a significant 
rule for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This proposed rule is not required to be published in the Federal 
Register for notice and comment; therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., does not apply.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this proposed 
rule does not impose recordkeeping or information collection 
requirements, or the collection of information from offerors, 
contractors, or members of the public which require the approval of the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.

E. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This proposed rule is exempt from Congressional review prescribed 
under 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates solely to agency management and 
personnel.

and 102-38 of this subchapter B, respectively. (See 21 CFR 1000.15 for 
items of electronic items that are required to follow radiation safety 
performance standards.) For items not meeting safety performance 
standards, excess reports must include a statement that the items are 
not in compliance with applicable radiation safety performance 
standards. Sales documents must also clearly warn purchasers that the 
items may not be in compliance with FDA radiation safety performance 
standards prescribed under 21 CFR part 1010 and that the purchaser 
assumes all risks associated with the use or resale of the items. The 
following type of warning may be placed on the sales documentation:

WARNING

    Purchasers are warned that the item purchased herewith may not 
be in compliance with Food and Drug Administration radiation safety 
performance standards prescribed under 21 CFR part 1010, and use may 
constitute a potential for personal injury unless modified. The 
purchaser agrees that the United States shall not be liable for 
personal injuries to, disabilities of, or death of the purchaser, 
the purchaser's employees, or to any other persons arising from or 
incident to the purchase of this item, its use, or disposition. The 
purchaser shall hold the United States harmless from and shall 
indemnify the United States against any or all debts, liabilities, 
judgments, costs, demands, suits, actions, or claims of any nature 
arising from or incident to purchase or resale of this item. The 
purchaser agrees to notify any subsequent purchaser of this property 
of the potential for personal injury in using this item without a 
radiation survey to determine the acceptability for use and/or 
modification to bring it into compliance with the radiation safety 
performance standard prescribed for the item under 21 CFR part 1010.

    (b) In accordance with 21 CFR 1002.40 and 1002.41 (Dealer and 
Distributor Records), when you sell electronic products for which there 
are performance standards (listed in 21 CFR part 1010) you must obtain

    (a) You must submit reports and transfer documents on excess 
firearms to GSA (7FP-8), Denver, CO 80225-0506. GSA will approve 
transfers of firearms only to those Federal agencies authorized to 
acquire firearms for official use, and may require additional written 
justification from the requesting agency.
    (b) GSA may donate only surplus hand guns, rifles, shotguns, and 
individual light automatic weapons previously used by the Federal 
Government, with less than .50 caliber in Federal Supply Classification 
(FSC) 1005, and rifle and shoulder fired grenade launchers in FSC 1010, 
with a disposal condition code of 4 or better (see condition codes in 
Sec.  102-36.240 of this subchapter B). Only eligible law enforcement 
entities whose primary function is the enforcement of applicable 
Federal, State, and/or local laws, and whose compensated law 
enforcement officers have powers to apprehend and arrest, may obtain 
these donated firearms for law enforcement purposes.
    (c) For purposes of donation under subsection (b) above, each 
Standard Form (SF) 123 must be accompanied by a conditional transfer 
document, signed by both the intended donee and the State Agency for 
Surplus Property (SASP), that includes the special terms, conditions, 
and restrictions prescribed by GSA, and any other required forms or 
information. Restrictions on donated firearms are perpetual and may not 
be amended by the SASP without prior written approval from GSA. You 
must release or ship donated firearms directly to the designated donee.
    (d) When authorized by circumstances described in paragraphs (e), 
(f), (g), or (i) of this section, the destruction of firearms must be 
performed by an activity authorized by your agency head or designee. 
The destruction must be witnessed by two additional agency employees 
authorized by the agency head or designee.
    (e) When the approved donee no longer needs the donated firearms, 
the donee must notify the SASP. The SASP

[[Page 25731]]

may, with GSA approval, reassign firearms to another donee within the 
State or to a donee in another state through the appropriate SASP. In 
such a case, transfer of the firearms must be between eligible donees 
only. No SASP is eligible to take custody of the firearm. Otherwise, 
the donee and a representative from the SASP, or designee, must witness 
destruction of the firearms and complete and sign a certificate of 
destruction, which will be maintained by the SASP.
    (f) You must not abandon firearms. You must destroy unneeded 
firearms by crushing, cutting, breaking, or deforming each firearm in a 
manner to ensure that each firearm is rendered completely inoperative. 
Destruction of firearms must be performed as stated in paragraph (d).
    (g) You must not dispose of firearms under an exchange/sale 
transaction or by sale. Surplus firearms may be sold only for scrap 
after total destruction as described in (f) above to ensure that the 
firearms are rendered completely inoperative and to preclude their 
being made operative. Such sale shall be conducted under part 102-38 of 
this subchapter B.
    (h) Firearms received as foreign gifts may be offered for transfer 
to Federal agencies or sold to the gift recipient in accordance with 
part 102-42 of this subchapter B.
    (i) Firearms that are forfeited, voluntarily abandoned, or 
unclaimed as described in 40 U.S.C. 1306 and 40 USC 552, must be

12196 paragraph 1-602(c), Occupational Safety and Health Programs for 
Federal Employees (February 26, 1980).
    (2) An automated database maintained by GSA Federal Supply Service 
contains MSDS for all GSA-procured hazardous materials. To request an 
MSDS, you may send an e-mail to MSDS@gsa.gov, or call, Toll Free: 866-
588-7659, DSN: 465-5097, or Commercial: 816-926-5097.
    (3) A collection of MSDS information in DOD's Hazardous Materials 
Information System (HMIS) provides transportation and disposal 
information.

Classification (FSC) classes of property that are composed 
predominantly of hazardous items.
    (5) When information is not available under paragraphs (a)(1), 
(a)(2), (a)(3), or (a)(4) of this section, contact the manufacturer, 
the procuring agency, or your technical staff for assistance in 
obtaining the MSDS information.
    (b) You must verify items with an expired shelf life or reclassify 
them as hazardous wastes when required by Federal, State, or local 
environmental laws or regulations.
    (c) For transportation of hazardous materials, see 49 CFR parts 171 
through 180.
    (d) For disposal of hazardous materials, see Sec. Sec.  102-40.50 
through 102-40.120.
    (e) Unless authorized by GSA, extremely hazardous property may not 
be sold unless it is rendered innocuous, mutilated, or otherwise made 
safe. You should, however, render such property innocuous in a manner 
so as to preserve the maximum utility or commercial value of the 
property when possible.

Sec.  102-40.185  How do we handle medical devices?

    (a) Medical devices are subject to the laws and regulations 
administered by FDA. Provisions of the governing statute, the Federal 
Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, appear in 21 U.S.C. 301-399. In summary, 
the Act prohibits the movement in interstate commerce of medical 
devices that are adulterated or misbranded (21 U.S.C. 351-352). The Act 
authorizes FDA to initiate criminal enforcement proceedings against 
companies and/or individuals responsible for violations of its 
provisions, and to initiate civil proceedings to seize or enjoin the 
distribution of such items.

[[Page 25732]]

    (b) Prescription devices are subject to additional Federal, State, 
local, and other applicable laws. Federal law requires that 
prescription devices be in the possession of either: persons lawfully 
engaged in the manufacture, transportation, storage, or wholesale or 
retail distribution of such device; or, practitioners licensed by their 
States. Federal law also requires that prescription devices be sold 
only to, or on the prescription or order of, a licensed practitioner 
for use in
