ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing a final rule to add the name of Structural Metals, Inc, to the exclusion granted to Conversion Systems Inc., (CSI) on June 13, 1995. As described in the exclusion issued to CSI in paragraph (1)(B), the Agency shall add the location of the treatment facility and the name of the steel mill contracting CSI’s services. This rule adds the location of U.S. Ecology, Texas Ecology in Robstown, Texas as the treatment facility and Structural Metals, Inc. as the steel mill contracting the services of CSI. This rule also updates the 1995 exclusion to include PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54713 Paragraphs (6) and (7), the Delisting Reopener language and Notification Requirements; and other updates regarding the disposal and submission of Quality Assurance Plan prior to submission of data for a new facility.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On June 13, 1995 (60 FR 31107), EPA finalized a conditional multiple site exclusion to Conversion Systems Inc., in Horsham, Pennsylvania. In 1995, CSI petitioned EPA for a multiple site exclusion for chemically stabilized electric arc furnace dust (CSEAFD) resulting from the Super DetoxTM process as modified by CSI. The original Super DetoxTM SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\23SER1.SGM 23SER1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES 54714 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 23, 2008 / Rules and Regulations process was developed by Bethlehem Steel Corporation and used at its Johnstown and Steelton, Pennsylvania facilities. Specifically, CSI was granted the exclusion for CSEAFD generated at the existing Sterling, Illinois facility at Northwestern Steel and future facilities to be constructed. CSI initially planned to construct twelve other facilities nationwide. The resulting CSEAFD is classified as K061 hazardous waste by virtue of the derived from rule. On March 20, 2006, CSI submitted a K061 Delisting Initial Verification Testing Report to EPA Region 6 in accordance with paragraph 1(A) of the exclusion. It lists Structural Metals Inc, as the new source and U.S. Ecology in Robstown, TX as the treatment location. The data package included sampling results from four (4) representative composite samples of the waste. This data was reviewed by EPA and also evaluated using the Delisting Risk Assessment Software (DRAS) currently used to evaluate new petitions. All constituent concentrations are below the delisting levels published in the exclusion and meet the current DRAS delisting exit levels. The Agency is also taking this time to update the 1995 CSI exclusion to make the following corrections and additions to the exclusion: (1) The address of the CSI facility has changed from Horsham, PA and is now located in Willow Grove, PA; (2) Reports should be submitted to the appropriate Regional Director or his/her designee and no longer the EPA Administrator; (3) New facilities added to this petition should submit and get EPA approval of their Quality Assurance Project Plans for the verification testing prior to requesting addition to the existing petition; and (4) Paragraphs (6) and (7) are added to the exclusion language. The purpose of paragraph (6), the Delisting Reopener Language, is to require the facility to disclose new or different information related to a condition at the facility or disposal of the waste, if it is pertinent to the delisting. The petitioner must also use this procedure, if the waste samples fail to meet the levels found in paragraph (3). This provision will allow EPA to reevaluate the exclusion, if a source provides new or additional information to EPA. EPA will evaluate the information on which it based the decision to see if it is still correct or if circumstances have changed so that the information is no longer correct or would cause EPA to deny the petition, if presented. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Sep 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 This provision expressly requires the petitioner to report differing site conditions or assumptions used in the petition. Additionally, it requires the petitioner to report within 10 days of discovery, instances where testing indicates that delisting levels were not achieved and the waste was subsequently managed as nonhazardous waste. If EPA discovers such information itself or from a third party, it can act on it as appropriate. The language being proposed is similar to those provisions found in RCRA regulations governing no-migration petitions at § 268.6. It is EPA’s position that it has the authority under RCRA and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 551, et seq., to reopen a delisting decision. EPA may reopen a delisting decision when it receives new information that calls into question the assumptions underlying the delisting. EPA believes a clear statement of its authority in delisting is merited in light of EPA’s experience. See the Federal Register notice regarding Reynolds Metals Company at 62 FR 37694 (July 14, 1997) and 62 FR 63458 (December 1, 1997) where the delisted waste leached at greater concentrations into the environment than the concentrations predicted when conducting the TCLP, leading EPA to repeal the delisting. If an immediate threat to human health and the environment presents itself, EPA will continue to address these situations on a case-by-case basis. Where necessary, EPA will make a good cause finding to justify emergency rulemaking. See APA section 553 (b)(3)(B). EPA is also adding paragraph (7), Notification Requirements. The treatment facility is required to notify State environmental agencies at least 60 days before beginning the transport and disposal of delisted wastes. This notification would be require for the state where the treated waste is generated as well as states through which the waste is transported and disposed. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’ (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this rule is not of general applicability and therefore is not a regulatory action subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) because it applies to a particular facility only. Because this rule is of particular PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 applicability relating to a particular facility, it is not subject to the regulatory flexibility provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202, 204, and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Pub. L. 104–4). Because this rule will affect only a particular facility, it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as specified in section 203 of UMRA. Because this rule will affect only a particular facility, this proposed rule does not have federalism implications. It will not 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, as specified in Executive Order 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Thus, Executive Order 13132 does not apply to this rule. Similarly, because this rule will affect only a particular facility, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications, as specified in Executive Order 13175, ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’ (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this rule. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045, ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant as defined in Executive Order 12866, and because the Agency does not have reason to believe the environmental health or safety risks addressed by this action present a disproportionate risk to children. The basis for this belief is that the Agency used the DRAS program, which considers health and safety risks to infants and children, to calculate the maximum allowable concentrations for this rule. 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. This rule does not involve technical standards; thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. As required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988, ‘‘Civil Justice Reform,’’ (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996), in issuing this rule, EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for E:\FR\FM\23SER1.SGM 23SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 23, 2008 / Rules and Regulations affected conduct. 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.C. 804(3). EPA is not required to submit a rule report regarding this action under section 801 because this is a rule of particular applicability.

Structural Metals, Inc. treated at U.S. Ecology, Robstown, Texas after September 23, 2008. (1) Verification Testing Requirements: Sample collection and analyses, including quality control procedures must be performed using appropriate methods. As applicable to the method-defined parameters of concern, analyses requiring the use of SW–846 methods incorporated by reference in 40 CFR 260.11 must be used without substitution. As applicable, the SW–846 methods might include Methods 0010, 0011, 0020, 0023A, 0030, 0031, 0040, 0050, 0051, 0060, 0061, 1010A, 1020B, 1110A, 1310B, 1311, 1312, 1320, 1330A, 9010C, 9012B, 9040C, 9045D, 9060A, 9070A (uses EPA Method 1664, Rev. A), 9071B, and 9095B. (A) Initial Verification Testing: During the first 20 operating days of full scale operation of a newly constructed Super DetoxTM treatment facility, CSI must analyze a minimum of four (4) composite samples of CSEAFD representative of the full 20-day period. Composites must be comprised of representative samples collected from every batch generated. The CSEAFD samples must be analyzed for the constituents listed in Condition (3). CSI must report the operational and analytical test data, including quality control information, obtained during this initial period no later than 60 days after the generation of the first batch of CSEAFD. (B) Addition of New Super DetoxTM Treatment Facilities to Exclusion: If the Agency’s review of the data obtained during initial verification testing indicates that the CSEAFD generated by a specific Super DetoxTM treatment facility consistently meets the delisting levels specified in Condition (3), the Agency will publish a notice adding to this exclusion the location of the new Super DetoxTM treatment facility and the name of the steel mill contracting CSI’s services. If the Agency’s review of the data obtained during initial verification testing indicates that the CSEAFD generated by a specific Super DetoxTM treatment facility fails to consistently meet the conditions of this exclusion, the Agency will not publish the notice adding the new facility. (C) Subsequent Verification Testing: For the Sterling, Illinois facility and any new facility subsequently added to CSI’s conditional multiple-site exclusion, CSI must collect and analyze at least one composite sample of CSEAFD each month. The composite samples must be composed of representative samples collected from all batches treated in each month. The composite samples must be composed representative samples collected from all batches treated in each month. These monthly representative samples must be analyzed, prior to disposal of the CSEAFD, for the constituents listed in Condition (3). CSI may, at its discretion, analyze composite samples gathered more frequently to demonstrate that smaller batches of waste are non-hazardous. (2) Waste Holding and Handling: CSI must store as hazardous all CSEAFD generated until verification testing as specified in Conditions (1)(A) and (1)(C), as appropriate, is completed and valid analyses demonstrate that Condition (3) is satisfied. If the levels of constituents measured in the samples of CSEAFD do not exceed the levels set forth in Condition (3), then the CSEAFD is non-hazardous and may be managed and disposed of in Subtitle D landfills. If constituent levels in a sample exceed any of the delisting levels set in Condition (3), the CSEAFD generated during the time period corresponding to this sample must be retreated until it meets these levels, or managed and disposed of in accordance with Subtitle C of RCRA. CSEAFD generated by a new CSI treatment facility must be managed as a hazardous waste prior to the addition of the name and location of the facility to the exclusion. After addition of the new facility to the exclusion, CSEAFD generated during the verification testing in Condition (1)(A) is also non-hazardous, if the delisting levels in Condition (3) are satisfied. 16:35 Sep 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\23SER1.SGM 23SER1 54716 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 23, 2008 / Rules and Regulations TABLE 2—WASTES EXCLUDED FROM SPECIFIC SOURCES—Continued jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES Facility * VerDate Aug<31>2005 Address * 16:35 Sep 22, 2008 Waste description (3) Delisting Levels: All leachable constituents for those metals must not exceed the following levels (ppm): Antimony-0.06; Arsenic-0.50; Barium-7.6; Beryllium-0.010; Cadmium-0.050; Chromium-0.33; Lead-0.15; Mercury-0.009; Nickel-1.00; Selenium-0.16; Silver-0.30; Thallium-0.020; Vanadium-2.0; Zinc-70. Metal concentrations must be measured in the waste leachate by the method specified in 40 CFR 261.24. (4) Changes in Operating Conditions: After initiating subsequent testing described in Condition (1)(C), if CSI significantly changes the stabilization process established under Condition (1) (e.g., use of new stabilization reagents), CSI must notify the Agency in writing. After written approval by EPA, CSI may handle CSEAFD generated from the new process as non-hazardous, if the wastes meet the delisting levels set in Condition (3). (5) Data Submittals: CSI must submit the information described below. If CSI fails to submit the required data within the specified time or maintain the required records on-site for the specified time, EPA, at its discretion, will consider this sufficient basis to reopen the exclusion as described in paragraph (6). CSI must: (A) At least one month prior to operation of a new Super DetoxTM treatment facility, CSI must notify, in writing, the EPA Regional Administrator or his designee, when the new Super DetoxTM treatment facility is scheduled to be on-line. The data obtained through paragraph 1(A) must be submitted to the Regional Administrator or his designee within the time period specified. All supporting data can be submitted on CD–ROM or some comparable electronic media. (B) CSI shall submit and receive EPA approval of the Quality Assurance Project Plan for data collection for each new facility added to this exclusion prior to conducting sampling events in paragraph 1(A). (C) Compile records of analytical data from paragraph (3), summarized, and maintained on-site for a minimum of five years. (D) Furnish these records and data when either EPA or the State agency requests them for inspection. (E) Send along with all data a signed copy of the following certification statement, to attest to the truth and accuracy of the data submitted. ‘‘Under civil and criminal penalty of law for the making or submission of false or fraudulent statements or representations (pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Federal Code, which include, but may not be limited to, 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 42 U.S.C. 6928), I certify that the information contained in or accompanying this document is true, accurate and complete. As to the (those) identified section(s) of this document for which I cannot personally verify its (their) truth and accuracy, I certify as the company official having supervisory responsibility for the persons who, acting under my direct instructions, made the verification that this information is true, accurate and complete. If any of this information is determined by EPA in its sole discretion to be false, inaccurate or incomplete, and upon conveyance of this fact to the company, I recognize and agree that this exclusion of waste will be void as if it never had effect or to the extent directed by EPA and that the company will be liable for any actions taken in contravention of the company’s RCRA and CERCLA obligations premised upon the company’s reliance on the void exclusion.’’ (6) Reopener: (A) If, anytime after disposal of the delisted waste CSI, the treatment facility, or the steel mill possess or is otherwise made aware of any data (including but not limited to leachate data or ground water monitoring data) relevant to the delisted waste indicating that any constituent identified for the delisting verification testing is at a level higher than the delisting level allowed by EPA in granting the petition, then the facility must report the data, in writing, to EPA within 10 days of first possessing or being made aware of that data. (B) If subsequent verification testing of the waste as required by paragraph 1(C) does not meet the delisting requirements in paragraph 3 and the waste is subsequently managed as non-hazardous waste, CSI must report the data, in writing, to EPA within 10 days of first possessing or being made aware of that data. (C) If CSI fails to submit the information described in paragraphs (5), (6)(A) or (6)(B) or if any other information is received from any source, EPA will make a preliminary determination as to whether the reported information requires action to protect human health and/or the environment. Further action may include suspending, or revoking the exclusion, or other appropriate response necessary to protect human health and the environment. (D) If EPA determines that the reported information requires action, EPA will notify the facility in writing of the actions it believes are necessary to protect human health and the environment. The notice shall include a statement of the proposed action and a statement providing the facility with an opportunity to present information explaining why the proposed EPA action is not necessary. The facility shall have 10 days from the date of EPA’s notice to present such information. (E) Following the receipt of information from the facility described in paragraph (6)(D) or (if no information is presented under paragraph (6)(D)) the initial receipt of information described in paragraphs (5), (6)(A) or (6)(B), EPA will issue a final written determination describing the actions that are necessary to protect human health and/or the environment. Any required action described in EPA’s determination shall become effective immediately, unless EPA provides otherwise. (7) Notification Requirements: CSI or the treatment facility must do the following before transporting the delisted waste. Failure to provide this notification will result in a violation of the delisting petition and a possible revocation of the decision. (A) Provide a one-time written notification to any state Regulatory Agency to which or through which it will transport the delisted waste described above for disposal, 60 days before beginning such activities. (B) Update the one-time written notification if it ships the delisted waste into a different disposal facility. (C) Failure to provide this notification will result in a violation of the delisting exclusion and a possible revocation of the decision. * * * * * Jkt 214001 PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\23SER1.SGM 23SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 23, 2008 / Rules and Regulations [FR Doc. E8–22170 Filed 9–22–08; 8:45 am] SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BILLING CODE 6560–50–P Background The BLM has specific authority to charge fees for processing applications and other documents relating to public lands under Section 304 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), 43 U.S.C. 1734. In 2005, the BLM published a final cost recovery rule (70 FR 58854) establishing or revising certain fees and service charges, and establishing the method it would use to adjust those fees and service charges on an annual basis. At 43 CFR 3000.12(a), the regulations provide that the BLM will annually adjust fees established in Subchapter C according to changes in the Implicit Price Deflator for Gross Domestic Product (IPD–GDP), which is published quarterly by the U.S. Department of Commerce. (See also 43 CFR 3000.10.) Because the fee recalculations are simply based on a mathematical formula, we have changed the fees in a final rule without providing opportunity for notice and comment. This final rule will allow the BLM to update these fees and service charges by October 1 of this year, as required by the 2005 regulation. The public had an opportunity to comment on this procedure during the comment period on the original cost recovery rule, and this new rule simply administers the procedure set forth in those regulations. The Department of the Interior, therefore, for good cause finds under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3) that notice and public comment procedures are unnecessary, and that the rule may be effective less than 30 days after publication.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This final rule amends the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) mineral resources regulations to update some fees that cover the BLM’s cost of processing certain documents relating to its mineral programs and some filing fees for mineral-related documents. These updates include fees for actions such as lease applications, name changes, corporate mergers, and lease consolidations. DATES: Effective date: This final rule is effective October 1, 2008.

ADDRESSES: You may send inquiries or suggestions to Director (630), Bureau of Land Management, MS–LS 401, 1849 C Street, NW., Washington, DC 20240; Attention: RIN 1004–AE01. Discussion of Final Rule BLM’s first fee update rule became effective on October 1, 2007. 72 FR 50882 (Sept. 5, 2007). The fee updates effective each October 1 are based on 54717 the IPD–GDP for the 4th Quarter of the preceding calendar year. See 72 FR 50882. This fee update is based on the IPD–GDP for 4th Quarter 2007, thus reflecting inflation over the four calendar quarters since 4th Quarter 2006. This rule also includes a minor amendment to BLM’s stated method of rounding numbers to arrive at the final fee. The final 2005 and 2007 rules stated that values would be rounded ‘‘to the nearest $5.00.’’ 70 FR 58855; 72 FR 50884. In this rule we adjust for the first time the geothermal nomination fee of $100 plus $0.10 per acre nominated.1 Because rounding the adjusted value for a fee of $0.10 to the nearest $5.00 cannot be sensibly implemented, we will round values for fees under $1.00 to the nearest penny. Pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. section 553(b)(B), BLM finds that notice and public comment procedure on this point are unnecessary because this is a minor revision that is consistent with general business practices. Moreover, BLM did not receive any comments on rounding when it proposed to round fees down or up to the nearest $5.00 in the 2005 proposed rule. 70 FR 41540. The Attorney General’s Manual on the APA states that the term ‘‘unnecessary’’ in 5 U.S.C. section 553(b)(B) ‘‘refers to the issuance of a minor rule or amendment in which the public is not particularly interested.’’ FEDERAL ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE SOURCEBOOK 63 (William F. Funk, Jeffrey S. Lubbers & Charles Pou, Jr., eds., ABA Publishing 3d ed. 2000). BLM has determined that this amendment falls within that category.

[EPA-R06-RCRA-2008-0455; SW-FRL-8713-3]


Hazardous Waste Management System; Identification and Listing of 
Hazardous Waste; Final Rule

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing a final 
rule to add the name of Structural Metals, Inc, to the exclusion 
granted to Conversion Systems Inc., (CSI) on June 13, 1995. As 
described in the exclusion issued to CSI in paragraph (1)(B), the 
Agency shall add the location of the treatment facility and the name of 
the steel mill contracting CSI's services. This rule adds the location 
of U.S. Ecology, Texas Ecology in Robstown, Texas as the treatment 
facility and Structural Metals, Inc. as the steel mill contracting the 
services of CSI. This rule also updates the 1995 exclusion to include 
Paragraphs (6) and (7), the Delisting Reopener language and 
Notification Requirements; and other updates regarding the disposal and 
submission of Quality Assurance Plan prior to submission of data for a 
new facility.

DATES: This rule is effective September 23, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 13, 1995 (60 FR 31107), EPA 
finalized a conditional multiple site exclusion to Conversion Systems 
Inc., in Horsham, Pennsylvania. In 1995, CSI petitioned EPA for a 
multiple site exclusion for chemically stabilized electric arc furnace 
dust (CSEAFD) resulting from the Super DetoxTM process as 
modified by CSI. The original Super DetoxTM

[[Page 54714]]

process was developed by Bethlehem Steel Corporation and used at its 
Johnstown and Steelton, Pennsylvania facilities. Specifically, CSI was 
granted the exclusion for CSEAFD generated at the existing Sterling, 
Illinois facility at Northwestern Steel and future facilities to be 
constructed. CSI initially planned to construct twelve other facilities 
nationwide. The resulting CSEAFD is classified as K061 hazardous waste 
by virtue of the derived from rule.
    On March 20, 2006, CSI submitted a K061 Delisting Initial 
Verification Testing Report to EPA Region 6 in accordance with 
paragraph 1(A) of the exclusion. It lists Structural Metals Inc, as the 
new source and U.S. Ecology in Robstown, TX as the treatment location. 
The data package included sampling results from four (4) representative 
composite samples of the waste. This data was reviewed by EPA and also 
evaluated using the Delisting Risk Assessment Software (DRAS) currently 
used to evaluate new petitions. All constituent concentrations are 
below the delisting levels published in the exclusion and meet the 
current DRAS delisting exit levels.
    The Agency is also taking this time to update the 1995 CSI 
exclusion to make the following corrections and additions to the 
exclusion:
    (1) The address of the CSI facility has changed from Horsham, PA 
and is now located in Willow Grove, PA;
    (2) Reports should be submitted to the appropriate Regional 
Director or his/her designee and no longer the EPA Administrator;
    (3) New facilities added to this petition should submit and get EPA 
approval of their Quality Assurance Project Plans for the verification 
testing prior to requesting addition to the existing petition; and
    (4) Paragraphs (6) and (7) are added to the exclusion language.
    The purpose of paragraph (6), the Delisting Reopener Language, is 
to require the facility to disclose new or different information 
related to a condition at the facility or disposal of the waste, if it 
is pertinent to the delisting. The petitioner must also use this 
procedure, if the waste samples fail to meet the levels found in 
paragraph (3). This provision will allow EPA to reevaluate the 
exclusion, if a source provides new or additional information to EPA. 
EPA will evaluate the information on which it based the decision to see 
if it is still correct or if circumstances have changed so that the 
information is no longer correct or would cause EPA to deny the 
petition, if presented.
    This provision expressly requires the petitioner to report 
differing site conditions or assumptions used in the petition. 
Additionally, it requires the petitioner to report within 10 days of 
discovery, instances where testing indicates that delisting levels were 
not achieved and the waste was subsequently managed as non-hazardous 
waste. If EPA discovers such information itself or from a third party, 
it can act on it as appropriate. The language being proposed is similar 
to those provisions found in RCRA regulations governing no-migration 
petitions at Sec.  268.6.
    It is EPA's position that it has the authority under RCRA and the 
Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 551, et seq., to reopen a 
delisting decision. EPA may reopen a delisting decision when it 
receives new information that calls into question the assumptions 
underlying the delisting.
    EPA believes a clear statement of its authority in delisting is 
merited in light of EPA's experience. See the Federal Register notice 
regarding Reynolds Metals Company at 62 FR 37694 (July 14, 1997) and 62 
FR 63458 (December 1, 1997) where the delisted waste leached at greater 
concentrations into the environment than the concentrations predicted 
when conducting the TCLP, leading EPA to repeal the delisting. If an 
immediate threat to human health and the environment presents itself, 
EPA will continue to address these situations on a case-by-case basis. 
Where necessary, EPA will make a good cause finding to justify 
emergency rulemaking. See APA section 553 (b)(3)(B).
    EPA is also adding paragraph (7), Notification Requirements. The 
treatment facility is required to notify State environmental agencies 
at least 60 days before beginning the transport and disposal of 
delisted wastes. This notification would be require for the state where 
the treated waste is generated as well as states through which the 
waste is transported and disposed.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review'' (58 
FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this rule is not of general applicability 
and therefore is not a regulatory action subject to review by the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This rule does not impose an 
information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) because it applies to a 
particular facility only. Because this rule is of particular 
applicability relating to a particular facility, it is not subject to 
the regulatory flexibility provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202, 204, and 205 of the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Pub. L. 104-4). Because 
this rule will affect only a particular facility, it will not 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as specified in 
section 203 of UMRA. Because this rule will affect only a particular 
facility, this proposed rule does not have federalism implications. It 
will not 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, as specified in Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism,'' (64 
FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Thus, Executive Order 13132 does not apply 
to this rule. Similarly, because this rule will affect only a 
particular facility, this proposed rule does not have tribal 
implications, as specified in Executive Order 13175, ``Consultation and 
Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments'' (65 FR 67249, November 9, 
2000). Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this rule. This 
rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045, ``Protection of 
Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant as 
defined in Executive Order 12866, and because the Agency does not have 
reason to believe the environmental health or safety risks addressed by 
this action present a disproportionate risk to children. The basis for 
this belief is that the Agency used the DRAS program, which considers 
health and safety risks to infants and children, to calculate the 
maximum allowable concentrations for this rule. 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. This rule does not involve technical 
standards; thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National 
Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do 
not apply. As required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988, ``Civil 
Justice Reform,'' (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996), in issuing this rule, 
EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and 
ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and provide a clear legal 
standard for

[[Page 54715]]

affected conduct. 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.C. 804(3). 
EPA is not required to submit a rule report regarding this action under 
section 801 because this is a rule of particular applicability.
