No. 08–20] Mandatory Pre-Departure Filing of Export Cargo Information Through the Automated Export System Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security. ACTION: General notice of compliance. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice informs the public of the date when U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will require compliance with its regulations pertaining to the mandatory, predeparture electronic filing of export information through the Automated Export System (AES). CBP regulations at 19 CFR 192.14 setting forth requirements for the advance electronic filing of export information by vessel, air, truck, and rail carriers provide a compliance date contingent upon the redesign of CBP’s AES commodity module and the effective date of Department of Commerce (DOC) regulations pertaining to mandatory electronic filing of export information. Since the redesign of the AES commodity module is complete, and the DOC regulations were published as a final rule on June 2, 2008, with an effective date of July 2, 2008, and an implementation date of September 30, 2008, the CBP regulations must be complied with starting September 30, 2008. DATES: The compliance date for the CBP regulations pertaining to the mandatory, pre-departure electronic filing of export cargo information through the AES (19 CFR 192.14) is September 30, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gregory Olsavsky, Director, Cargo Control Division, Office of Field Operations, 202–344–1049. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 5, 2003, CBP published a final rule in the Federal Register (68 FR 68140) amending the CBP regulations pertaining to the filing of export cargo information through the AES (19 CFR, Part 192, Subpart B). Specifically, the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Jun 06, 2008 Jkt 214001 final rule added new § 192.14 to require (with a provision for exceptions) that vessel, air, truck, and rail carriers electronically file export cargo information through a CBP-approved electronic data interchange system (then and still the AES) and that such filing occur prior to departure from the United States for vessel and air carriers (24 hours for vessel carriers, two hours prior to scheduled departure time for air carriers) and prior to arrival at the border for truck and rail carriers (one hour for truck carriers, two hours for rail carriers). (The actual filing responsibility is imposed on the U.S. principal party in interest (USPPI), or its agent, representing the carrier.) These regulations were published pursuant to section 343(a) of the Trade Act of 2002, as amended by the Maritime Security Act (19 U.S.C. 2071 note). (See the published rule for a further discussion of these provisions and their underlying authorities.) Under the 2003 CBP final rule (specifically, § 192.14(e)), the requirements of these regulations were set to be implemented upon the completion of the redesign of CBP’s AES commodity module and the effective date of DOC regulations pertaining to mandatory electronic filing of export cargo information. The redesign of the AES is complete, and the DOC has recently published its regulations. On June 2, 2008, the Bureau of the Census (U.S. Census Bureau or Census Bureau), DOC, published a final rule in the Federal Register (73 FR 31548) amending its Foreign Trade regulations to implement provisions of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act (FRA Act). Under the FRA Act, the Secretary of Commerce, with the concurrence of the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security, is authorized to publish regulations mandating that all persons required to file export information via a Shippers Export Declaration (SED) under chapter 9 of title 13, United States Code (13 U.S.C.) do so through the AES. Thus, under the final rule, the Census Bureau is requiring mandatory filing of export cargo information through CBP’s AES (or through AESDirect, the Census Bureau’s free Internet-based system) for all shipments: Vessel, aircraft, truck, and rail. (See the published rule for a further discussion of these provisions and their underlying authorities.) The publication of these DOC regulations and the effective date set forth in those DOC regulations trigger the effectiveness of the CBP regulations. The effective date of the Census Bureau final rule is July 2, 2008, but the Census Bureau will not commence PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 implementation of the final rule’s provisions until September 30, 2008. Accordingly, the compliance date for the CBP regulations pertaining to predeparture electronic filing (through AES) of export cargo information, pursuant to 19 CFR 192.14(e), is the implementation date of the DOC final rule, September 30, 2008. After September 30, 2008, CBP will publish a technical amendment to the CFR amending § 192.14 to reflect the compliance date. Dated: June 2, 2008. Jayson P. Ahern, Acting Commissioner, Customs and Border Protection. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is amending the regulations to make certain updates and corrections to the list of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes subject to reporting under the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) to reflect the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 2007 NAICS revision. EPA is making corrections to the list of NAICS codes subject to reporting under TRI that was published on June 6, 2006, in the final rule adopting NAICS for TRI reporting and is correcting a longstanding typographical error in the regulatory text. DATES: This final rule is effective on August 8, 2008. Facilities will be required to report to TRI using 2007 NAICS codes beginning with TRI reporting forms that are due on July 1, 2009, covering releases and other waste management quantities for the 2008 calendar year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES I. General Information Does This Action Apply to Me? Entities that may be affected by this action are those facilities that have 10 or more full-time employees or the equivalent 20,000 hours per year that manufacture, process, or otherwise use toxic chemicals listed on the TRI, and that are required under section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and section 6607 of the Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) to report annually to EPA and States their environmental releases and other waste management quantities of covered chemicals. Under Executive Order 13423, published on January 24, 2007 (72 FR 3919), all federal facilities are required to comply with the provisions set forth in section 313 of EPCRA and section 6607 of the PPA. On April 2, 2007, the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) issued Instructions for Implementing Executive Order 13423, including annual reporting to the TRI program. Executive departments and agencies are required to implement the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Jun 06, 2008 Jkt 214001 activities described in the instructions in accordance with sections 1, 2, 3 and 4(b) of the Executive Order. To determine whether your facility is affected by this action, you should carefully examine the applicability criteria in part 372, subpart B of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. If you have any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. II. What Is EPA’s Statutory Authority for Taking This Action? EPA is finalizing this action under sections 313(g)(1) and 328 of EPCRA, 42 U.S.C. 11023(g)(1) and 11048. EPCRA is also referred to as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) (Pub. L. 99–499). In general, section 313 of EPCRA requires owners and operators of facilities in specified Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes that manufacture, process, or otherwise use a listed toxic chemical in amounts above specified threshold levels to report certain facility specific information about such chemicals, including the annual releases and other waste management quantities. Section 313(g)(1) of EPCRA requires EPA to publish a uniform toxic chemical release form for these reporting purposes, and it also prescribes, in general terms, the types of information that must be submitted on the form. Section 313(g)(1)(A) requires owners and operators of facilities that are subject to section 313 requirements to report the principal business activities at the facilities. Congress also granted EPA broad rulemaking authority to allow the Agency to fully implement the statute. EPCRA section 328 authorizes the ‘‘Administrator [to] prescribe such regulations as may be necessary to carry out this chapter.’’ 42 U.S.C. 11048. Consistent with these authorities, EPA amended 40 CFR Part 372 to include the 2002 NAICS codes that correspond to the SIC codes that are currently subject to section 313 of EPCRA and section 6607 of the PPA. 71 FR 32464 (June 6, 2006). EPA is now amending 40 CFR Part 372 to include OMB’s revised NAICS codes for 2007. Owners and operators of facilities that are subject to section 313 must identify their principal business activities using 2007 NAICS codes beginning with TRI reporting forms that are due on July 1, 2009, covering releases and other waste management quantities at the facility for the 2008 calendar year. PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 32467 III. Background Information What Is the General Background for This Action? EPA promulgated a final TRI NAICS rule on June 6, 2006, to amend its regulations for TRI, found at 40 CFR Part 372, to include the NAICS codes. The list of TRI NAICS codes that appeared in the final rule was developed from the 2002 NAICS revision. EPA is now updating that list based on the OMB 2007 NAICS revision. In addition, certain TRI-covered NAICS codes and certain exceptions and limitations to TRI-covered NAICS codes did not appear in the June 6, 2006, notice’s list of TRI-covered NAICS codes and are now being included. IV. Final Action A. What Is the Agency’s Final Action? EPA is amending 40 CFR Part 372 to correct the list of NAICS codes for TRI reporting and to update the list using 2007 NAICS codes so that the NAICS codes listed in the TRI regulations accurately reflect the universe of covered facilities under section 313 of EPCRA and section 6607 of the PPA. In addition, unrelated to the NAICS codes, EPA is using this rulemaking as an opportunity to correct a reference to a nonexistent section in Part 372. Specifically, § 372.5 (Persons subject to this part) reads, in pertinent part ‘‘If the owner and operator of a facility are different persons, only one need report under § 372.17 or provide a notice under § 372.45 for each toxic chemical in a mixture or trade name product distributed from the facility.’’ There is no 40 CFR 372.17 and therefore, reference to this section is an error which the Agency is proposing to revise to refer to the appropriate section on TRI reporting requirements, § 372.30 (Reporting requirements and schedule for reporting). B. Will This Final Rule Affect the Universe of Facilities That Are Currently Required To Report to EPA and the States? This action will not affect the universe of facilities that is currently required to report under section 313 of EPCRA and section 6607 of the PPA because EPA is not adding or deleting industry groups from the list of industries currently subject to section 313 reporting requirements. C. How Will Section 313 Reporting Requirements Change as a Result of This Rule? TRI reporting requirements will not change as a result of this final rule. This rule revises the NAICS codes to reflect E:\FR\FM\09JNR1.SGM 09JNR1 32468 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 111 / Monday, June 9, 2008 / Rules and Regulations the OMB NAICS 2007 revision and corrects inadvertent omissions that occurred when identifying the NAICS codes that are associated with the SIC codes that are covered by the statute. This rule will help clarify that certain sectors are still required to report to TRI and to accurately reflect all covered sectors in the list of TRI-covered NAICS codes. D. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Updates to NAICS OMB plans to update NAICS every five years with the next update scheduled for 2012. If necessary, the TRI program will issue a Federal Register notice to update the TRI NAICS codes at that time. V. Summary of Public Comments and EPA Responses No comments were received during the 30-day comment period following publication of the proposed rule to update TRI NAICS codes. VI. What Additional Reporting Burden Is Associated With This Action? This rule adds no new reporting requirements, and there will be no net increase in respondent burden. Facilities were first required to report their toxic chemical releases and other waste management activities to EPA using NAICS codes beginning in 2007 for reporting year 2006. Covered facilities should refer to the updated NAICS code list in 40 CFR 372.23 when reporting. Crosswalk tables between 2007 NAICS and 2002 NAICS can be found on the Internet at https:// www.census.gov/epcd/www/naics.html. VII. Regulatory Assessment Requirements jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES A. Executive Order 12866 This action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under the terms of Executive Order (EO) 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and is therefore not subject to review under the EO. B. Paperwork Reduction Act This action does not impose any new information collection burden. Facilities that are affected by the rule are already required to report their industrial classification codes on the approved reporting forms under section 313 of EPCRA and 6607 of the PPA. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has previously approved the information collection requirements contained in the existing regulations at 40 CFR part 372 under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. and has assigned the Information Collection Request (ICR) VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Jun 06, 2008 Jkt 214001 OMB control numbers 2070–0093 (EPA ICR No. 1363–15) for Form R and 2070– 0143 (EPA ICR No. 1704–09) for Form A. A copy of the OMB approved Information Collection Requests (ICRs) may be obtained from Rick Westlund, Collection Strategies Division; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (2822T); 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20460 or by calling (202) 566–1672. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. C. The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as Amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq. The RFA generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions. For purposes of assessing the impacts of this rule on small entities, small entity is defined as: (1) A business that is classified as a ‘‘small business’’ by the Small Business Administration at 13 CFR 121.201; (2) a small governmental jurisdiction that is a government of a city, county, town, school district or special district with a population of less than 50,000; and (3) a small organization that is any not-for-profit enterprise which is independently owned and operated and is not dominant in its field. PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 After considering the economic impacts of this rule on small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The small entities directly regulated by this rule are TRI reporting facilities that have 10 or more full-time employee equivalents (i.e., a total of 20,000 hours or greater). We have determined that, since this rule makes only very minor revisions and updates to the TRI NAICS codes that are already being used by TRI-covered facilities on TRI reporting forms, the resulting burden due to these minor changes is negligible, and will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act EPA has determined that this rule does not contain a Federal mandate that may result in expenditures of $100 million or more for State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or the private sector in any one year. Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA), Public Law 104– 4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions on State, local, and tribal governments and the private sector. Under Section 202 of the UMRA, EPA generally must prepare a written statement, including a cost-benefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with ‘‘Federal mandates’’ that may result in expenditures to State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. Before promulgating an EPA rule for which a written statement is needed, section 205 of the UMRA generally requires EPA to identify and consider a reasonable number of the regulatory alternatives and adopt the least costly, most costeffective or least burdensome alternative that achieves the objective of the rule. The provisions of section 205 do not apply when they are inconsistent with applicable law. Moreover, section 205 allows EPA to adopt an alternative other than the least costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative if the Administrator publishes with the final rule an explanation why that alternative was not adopted. Before EPA establishes any regulatory requirements that may significantly or uniquely affect small governments, including tribal governments, it must have developed under section 203 of the UMRA a small government agency plan. The plan must provide for notifying potentially affected small governments, enabling officials of affected small governments to have meaningful and timely input in E:\FR\FM\09JNR1.SGM 09JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 111 / Monday, June 9, 2008 / Rules and Regulations the development of EPA regulatory proposals with significant Federal intergovernmental mandates, and informing, educating, and advising small governments on compliance with the regulatory requirements. Thus, today’s rule is not subject to the requirements of sections 202 and 205 of the UMRA. EPA has also determined that this rule contains no regulatory requirements that might significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Because this rule simply updates and makes very minor corrections to the TRI NAICS codes that have already been implemented for reporting by TRI facilities, the rule will not impose substantial direct compliance costs on TRI reporting facilities regulated under section 313 of EPCRA and 6607 of the PPA. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES E. Executive Order 13132, Federalism Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), 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 various levels of government.’’ This rule does not have federalism implications. It 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. Thus, Executive Order 13132 does not apply to this rule. F. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) 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.’’ EPA has concluded that this rule may have tribal implications as TRI reporting facilities may be on tribal lands. However, the rule simply updates and makes corrections to the TRI NAICS codes that have already been implemented for reporting by TRI facilities, including those on tribal VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Jun 06, 2008 Jkt 214001 lands. As such, the rule will neither impose substantial direct compliance costs on tribal governments, nor preempt Tribal law. G. Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks Executive Order 13045, ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), applies to any rule that: (1) Is determined to be ‘‘economically significant’’ as defined under Executive Order 12866, and (2) concerns an environmental health or safety risk that EPA has reason to believe may have a disproportionate effect on children. If the regulatory action meets both criteria, the Agency must evaluate the environmental health or safety effects of the planned rule on children, and explain why the planned regulation is preferable to other potentially effective and reasonably feasible alternatives considered by the Agency. EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 as applying only to those regulatory actions that are based on health or safety risks, such that the analysis required under section 5–501 of the Order has the potential to influence the regulation. This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it does not establish an environmental standard intended to mitigate health or safety risks. H. Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355 (May 22, 2001)), because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, etc.) 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 PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 32469 available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. This rulemaking does not involve technical standards. Therefore, EPA is not considering the use of any voluntary consensus standards. J. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations Executive Order (EO) 12898 (59 FR 7629 (Feb. 16, 1994)) establishes federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main provision directs federal agencies, to the greatest extent practicable and permitted by law, to make environmental justice part of their mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of their programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations in the United States. EPA has determined that this rule will not have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority or low-income populations because the rule addresses information collection and does not affect the level of protection provided to human health or the environment. K. Congressional Review Act The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 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. Section 804 exempts from section 801 the following types of rules: (1) Rules of particular applicability; (2) rules relating to agency management or personnel; and (3) rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice that do not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties. 5 U.S. 804(3). EPA is not required to submit a rule report regarding today’s action under section 801 because this is a rule of agency organization, procedure, or practice that does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties.

Background On September 11, 2007, NHTSA published a final rule that substantially upgraded Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 214, ‘‘Side impact protection,’’ (72 FR 51908, Docket No. NHTSA–29134).1 Until the final rule, FMVSS No. 214 provided only thoracic and pelvic protection in a test using a moving deformable barrier (MDB) to simulate an intersection collision with one vehicle being struck in the side by another vehicle. NHTSA upgraded FMVSS No. 214 to require all light vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 4,536 kg or less (10,000 lb. or less) to protect front seat occupants in a vehicle-to-pole test simulating a vehicle crashing sideways into narrow fixed objects, such as utility poles and trees. By doing so it required vehicle manufacturers to assure head and improved chest protection in side crashes for a wide range of occupant sizes and over a broad range of seating positions. It ensured the installation of new technologies, such as side curtain air bags 2 and torso side air bags, which are capable of improving head and thorax protection to occupants of 1 The final rule fulfilled the mandate of the ‘‘Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU),’’ which was signed by President George W. Bush in August 2005. Evidently aware of the agency’s thenpending notice of proposed rulemaking to upgrade FMVSS No. 214, Section 10302 of the Act directed the agency ‘‘to complete a rulemaking proceeding under chapter 301 of title 49, United States Code, to establish a standard designed to enhance passenger motor vehicle occupant protection, in all seating positions, in side impact crashes.’’ 2 These different side air bag systems are described in a glossary in Appendix A to the September 11, 2007 final rule (72 FR at 51954).

codes subject to reporting under TRI that was published on June 6, 
2006, in the final rule adopting NAICS for TRI reporting and is 
correcting a longstanding typographical error in the regulatory text.

DATES: This final rule is effective on August 8, 2008. Facilities will 
be required to report to TRI using 2007 NAICS codes beginning with TRI 
reporting forms that are due on July 1, 2009, covering releases and 
other waste management quantities for the 2008 calendar year.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

Does This Action Apply to Me?

    Entities that may be affected by this action are those facilities 
that have 10 or more full-time employees or the equivalent 20,000 hours 
per year that manufacture, process, or otherwise use toxic chemicals 
listed on the TRI, and that are required under section 313 of the 
Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and section 
6607 of the Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) to report annually to EPA 
and States their environmental releases and other waste management 
quantities of covered chemicals. Under Executive Order 13423, published 
on January 24, 2007 (72 FR 3919), all federal facilities are required 
to comply with the provisions set forth in section 313 of EPCRA and 
section 6607 of the PPA. On April 2, 2007, the White House Council on 
Environmental Quality (CEQ) issued Instructions for Implementing 
Executive Order 13423, including annual reporting to the TRI program. 
Executive departments and agencies are required to implement the 
activities described in the instructions in accordance with sections 1, 
2, 3 and 4(b) of the Executive Order.
    To determine whether your facility is affected by this action, you 
should carefully examine the applicability criteria in part 372, 
subpart B of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. If you have 
any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a 
particular entity, consult the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section.

II. What Is EPA's Statutory Authority for Taking This Action?

    EPA is finalizing this action under sections 313(g)(1) and 328 of 
EPCRA, 42 U.S.C. 11023(g)(1) and 11048. EPCRA is also referred to as 
Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 
(SARA) (Pub. L. 99-499). In general, section 313 of EPCRA requires 
owners and operators of facilities in specified Standard Industrial 
Classification (SIC) codes that manufacture, process, or otherwise use 
a listed toxic chemical in amounts above specified threshold levels to 
report certain facility specific information about such chemicals, 
including the annual releases and other waste management quantities. 
Section 313(g)(1) of EPCRA requires EPA to publish a uniform toxic 
chemical release form for these reporting purposes, and it also 
prescribes, in general terms, the types of information that must be 
submitted on the form. Section 313(g)(1)(A) requires owners and 
operators of facilities that are subject to section 313 requirements to 
report the principal business activities at the facilities. Congress 
also granted EPA broad rulemaking authority to allow the Agency to 
fully implement the statute. EPCRA section 328 authorizes the 
``Administrator [to] prescribe such regulations as may be necessary to 
carry out this chapter.'' 42 U.S.C. 11048.
    Consistent with these authorities, EPA amended 40 CFR Part 372 to 
include the 2002 NAICS codes that correspond to the SIC codes that are 
currently subject to section 313 of EPCRA and section 6607 of the PPA. 
71 FR 32464 (June 6, 2006). EPA is now amending 40 CFR Part 372 to 
include OMB's revised NAICS codes for 2007.
    Owners and operators of facilities that are subject to section 313 
must identify their principal business activities using 2007 NAICS 
codes beginning with TRI reporting forms that are due on July 1, 2009, 
covering releases and other waste management quantities at the facility 
for the 2008 calendar year.

III. Background Information

What Is the General Background for This Action?

    EPA promulgated a final TRI NAICS rule on June 6, 2006, to amend 
its regulations for TRI, found at 40 CFR Part 372, to include the NAICS 
codes. The list of TRI NAICS codes that appeared in the final rule was 
developed from the 2002 NAICS revision. EPA is now updating that list 
based on the OMB 2007 NAICS revision. In addition, certain TRI-covered 
NAICS codes and certain exceptions and limitations to TRI-covered NAICS 
codes did not appear in the June 6, 2006, notice's list of TRI-covered 
NAICS codes and are now being included.

IV. Final Action

A. What Is the Agency's Final Action?

    EPA is amending 40 CFR Part 372 to correct the list of NAICS codes 
for TRI reporting and to update the list using 2007 NAICS codes so that 
the NAICS codes listed in the TRI regulations accurately reflect the 
universe of covered facilities under section 313 of EPCRA and section 
6607 of the PPA.
    In addition, unrelated to the NAICS codes, EPA is using this 
rulemaking as an opportunity to correct a reference to a nonexistent 
section in Part 372. Specifically, Sec.  372.5 (Persons subject to this 
part) reads, in pertinent part ``If the owner and operator of a 
facility are different persons, only one need report under Sec.  372.17 
or provide a notice under Sec.  372.45 for each toxic chemical in a 
mixture or trade name product distributed from the facility.'' There is 
no 40 CFR 372.17 and therefore, reference to this section is an error 
which the Agency is proposing to revise to refer to the appropriate 
section on TRI reporting requirements, Sec.  372.30 (Reporting 
requirements and schedule for reporting).

B. Will This Final Rule Affect the Universe of Facilities That Are 
Currently Required To Report to EPA and the States?

    This action will not affect the universe of facilities that is 
currently required to report under section 313 of EPCRA and section 
6607 of the PPA because EPA is not adding or deleting industry groups 
from the list of industries currently subject to section 313 reporting 
requirements.

C. How Will Section 313 Reporting Requirements Change as a Result of 
This Rule?

    TRI reporting requirements will not change as a result of this 
final rule. This rule revises the NAICS codes to reflect

[[Page 32468]]

the OMB NAICS 2007 revision and corrects inadvertent omissions that 
occurred when identifying the NAICS codes that are associated with the 
SIC codes that are covered by the statute. This rule will help clarify 
that certain sectors are still required to report to TRI and to 
accurately reflect all covered sectors in the list of TRI-covered NAICS 
codes.

D. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Updates to NAICS

    OMB plans to update NAICS every five years with the next update 
scheduled for 2012. If necessary, the TRI program will issue a Federal 
Register notice to update the TRI NAICS codes at that time.

V. Summary of Public Comments and EPA Responses

    No comments were received during the 30-day comment period 
following publication of the proposed rule to update TRI NAICS codes.

VI. What Additional Reporting Burden Is Associated With This Action?

    This rule adds no new reporting requirements, and there will be no 
net increase in respondent burden. Facilities were first required to 
report their toxic chemical releases and other waste management 
activities to EPA using NAICS codes beginning in 2007 for reporting 
year 2006. Covered facilities should refer to the updated NAICS code 
list in 40 CFR 372.23 when reporting. Crosswalk tables between 2007 
NAICS and 2002 NAICS can be found on the Internet at https://
www.census.gov/epcd/www/naics.html.

VII. Regulatory Assessment Requirements

A. Executive Order 12866

    This action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under the 
terms of Executive Order (EO) 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 
is therefore not subject to review under the EO.

B. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This action does not impose any new information collection burden. 
Facilities that are affected by the rule are already required to report 
their industrial classification codes on the approved reporting forms 
under section 313 of EPCRA and 6607 of the PPA.
    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has previously approved 
the information collection requirements contained in the existing 
regulations at 40 CFR part 372 under the provisions of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. and has assigned the Information 
Collection Request (ICR) OMB control numbers 2070-0093 (EPA ICR No. 
1363-15) for Form R and 2070-0143 (EPA ICR No. 1704-09) for Form A. A 
copy of the OMB approved Information Collection Requests (ICRs) may be 
obtained from Rick Westlund, Collection Strategies Division; U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency (2822T); 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW., 
Washington, DC 20460 or by calling (202) 566-1672.
    Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources 
expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or 
provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time 
needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize 
technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and 
verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and 
disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to 
comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; 
train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; 
search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; 
and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's 
regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9.

C. The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as Amended by the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 
601 et seq.

    The RFA generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory 
flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment 
rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any 
other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, and small 
governmental jurisdictions.
    For purposes of assessing the impacts of this rule on small 
entities, small entity is defined as: (1) A business that is classified 
as a ``small business'' by the Small Business Administration at 13 CFR 
121.201; (2) a small governmental jurisdiction that is a government of 
a city, county, town, school district or special district with a 
population of less than 50,000; and (3) a small organization that is 
any not-for-profit enterprise which is independently owned and operated 
and is not dominant in its field.
    After considering the economic impacts of this rule on small 
entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The small 
entities directly regulated by this rule are TRI reporting facilities 
that have 10 or more full-time employee equivalents (i.e., a total of 
20,000 hours or greater). We have determined that, since this rule 
makes only very minor revisions and updates to the TRI NAICS codes that 
are already being used by TRI-covered facilities on TRI reporting 
forms, the resulting burden due to these minor changes is negligible, 
and will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number 
of small entities.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    EPA has determined that this rule does not contain a Federal 
mandate that may result in expenditures of $100 million or more for 
State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or the private 
sector in any one year. Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 
1995 (UMRA), Public Law 104-4, establishes requirements for Federal 
agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions on State, 
local, and tribal governments and the private sector. Under Section 202 
of the UMRA, EPA generally must prepare a written statement, including 
a cost-benefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with ``Federal 
mandates'' that may result in expenditures to State, local, and tribal 
governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, of $100 
million or more in any one year. Before promulgating an EPA rule for 
which a written statement is needed, section 205 of the UMRA generally 
requires EPA to identify and consider a reasonable number of the 
regulatory alternatives and adopt the least costly, most cost-effective 
or least burdensome alternative that achieves the objective of the 
rule. The provisions of section 205 do not apply when they are 
inconsistent with applicable law. Moreover, section 205 allows EPA to 
adopt an alternative other than the least costly, most cost-effective 
or least burdensome alternative if the Administrator publishes with the 
final rule an explanation why that alternative was not adopted. Before 
EPA establishes any regulatory requirements that may significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, including tribal governments, it 
must have developed under section 203 of the UMRA a small government 
agency plan. The plan must provide for notifying potentially affected 
small governments, enabling officials of affected small governments to 
have meaningful and timely input in

[[Page 32469]]

the development of EPA regulatory proposals with significant Federal 
intergovernmental mandates, and informing, educating, and advising 
small governments on compliance with the regulatory requirements.
    Thus, today's rule is not subject to the requirements of sections 
202 and 205 of the UMRA. EPA has also determined that this rule 
contains no regulatory requirements that might significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments. Because this rule simply updates and 
makes very minor corrections to the TRI NAICS codes that have already 
been implemented for reporting by TRI facilities, the rule will not 
impose substantial direct compliance costs on TRI reporting facilities 
regulated under section 313 of EPCRA and 6607 of the PPA.

E. Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 
1999), 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 various levels of government.''
    This rule does not have federalism implications. It 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. Thus, Executive Order 13132 does not apply to 
this rule.

F. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian 
Tribal Governments

    Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with 
Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) 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.'' EPA has concluded that this rule may 
have tribal implications as TRI reporting facilities may be on tribal 
lands. However, the rule simply updates and makes corrections to the 
TRI NAICS codes that have already been implemented for reporting by TRI 
facilities, including those on tribal lands. As such, the rule will 
neither impose substantial direct compliance costs on tribal 
governments, nor preempt Tribal law.

G. Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks

    Executive Order 13045, ``Protection of Children from Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), applies 
to any rule that: (1) Is determined to be ``economically significant'' 
as defined under Executive Order 12866, and (2) concerns an 
environmental health or safety risk that EPA has reason to believe may 
have a disproportionate effect on children. If the regulatory action 
meets both criteria, the Agency must evaluate the environmental health 
or safety effects of the planned rule on children, and explain why the 
planned regulation is preferable to other potentially effective and 
reasonably feasible alternatives considered by the Agency.
    EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 as applying only to those 
regulatory actions that are based on health or safety risks, such that 
the analysis required under section 5-501 of the Order has the 
potential to influence the regulation. This rule is not subject to 
Executive Order 13045 because it does not establish an environmental 
standard intended to mitigate health or safety risks.

H. Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That 
Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

    This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355 (May 22, 2001)), because it is not a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act

    Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement 
Act of 1995 (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs EPA to use voluntary 
consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would 
be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary 
consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials 
specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, etc.) 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 rulemaking does not involve technical standards. Therefore, 
EPA is not considering the use of any voluntary consensus standards.

J. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental 
Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations

    Executive Order (EO) 12898 (59 FR 7629 (Feb. 16, 1994)) establishes 
federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main provision 
directs federal agencies, to the greatest extent practicable and 
permitted by law, to make environmental justice part of their mission 
by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high 
and adverse human health or environmental effects of their programs, 
policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income 
populations in the United States.
    EPA has determined that this rule will not have disproportionately 
high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority or 
low-income populations because the rule addresses information 
collection and does not affect the level of protection provided to 
human health or the environment.

K. Congressional Review Act

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 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. Section 804 exempts from section 801 the following types 
of rules: (1) Rules of particular applicability; (2) rules relating to 
agency management or personnel; and (3) rules of agency organization, 
procedure, or practice that do not substantially affect the rights or 
obligations of non-agency parties. 5 U.S. 804(3). EPA is not required 
to submit a rule report regarding today's action under section 801 
because this is a rule of agency organization, procedure, or practice 
that does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-
agency parties.
