SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DoD, GSA, and NASA published an interim rule in the Federal 
Register at 72 FR 46359 on August 17, 2007, to amend FAR 23.406 and 
23.906 to revise the prescriptions for the use of 52.223-9 and 52.223-
14 to provide for their use under the same circumstances as the 
prescription for use of their associated provisions. These revisions 
ensure compliance with the requirements of 40 CFR part 247 and 42 
U.S.C. 11023. The comment period closed October 16, 2007. No public 
comments were received on the rule. The Councils have determined to 
adopt the interim rule as final, without change.
    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and 
the National Aeronautics and Space Administration certify that this 
final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule revises 
language that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has already 
approved for obtaining representations and certifications under OMB 
Control Numbers 9000-0134 and 9000-0139 for compliance with Section 
6002 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and the requirements 
of Executive Order 12969, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-
Know Act of 1986. No comments were received with regard to an impact on 
small entities.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply; however, these changes to 
the FAR do not impose additional information collection requirements to 
the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Numbers 
9000-0134 and 9000-0139.
