EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has developed a commodity vocabulary database entitled ‘‘Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary.’’ The database was developed to consolidate all the major OPP commodity vocabularies into one standardized vocabulary. As a result, all future pesticide tolerances issued under 40 CFR part 180 will use the ‘‘preferred commodity term’’ as listed in the aforementioned database. Previously, seven documents in a series of documents revising the terminology of commodity terms currently in tolerances in 40 CFR part 180 have been published. Final Rules, revising pesticide tolerance nomenclature, were published in the Federal Register on June 19, 2002 (67 FR 41802) (FRL– 6835–2); June 21, 2002 (67 FR 42392) (FRL–7180–1); July 1, 2003 (68 FR E:\FR\FM\10OCR1.SGM 10OCR1 60152 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 198 / Friday, October 10, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 39428) (FRL–7308–9) and (68 FR 39435)(FRL–7316–9); December 13, 2006 (71 FR 74802) (FRL–8064–3); and September 18, 2007 (72 FR 53134)(FRL– 8126–5); corrected on October 31, 2007 (72 FR 61535)(FRL–8151–4). In the Federal Register of June 18, 2008 (73 FR 34678), EPA issued a proposed rule proposing to revise the terminology for certain commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180, subparts A, C and E. The issuance of this document finalizes the changes proposed in the June 18, 2008 issue of the Federal Register. EPA is making the following format changes to the terminology of the commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180 to the extent the terminology is not already in this format: 1. The first letter of the commodity term is capitalized. All other letters, including the first letter of proper names, are changed to lower case. 2. Commodity terms are listed in the singular, although there are the following exceptions: leaves, roots, tops, greens, hulls, vines, fractions, shoots, and byproducts. 3. Commodity terms are amended so that generic terms precede modifying terms. Example - Aspirated grain fractions is replaced with Grain, aspirated fractions. 4. Crop group terms are revised to standardize with the ‘‘Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary.’’ Examples are: • Vegetable, leafy greens, except Brassica, group 4 is replaced with Vegetable, leafy, except brassica, group 4. • Legume vegetables, succulent or dried (except soybean) is replaced with Vegetable, legume, group 6, except soybean. • Vegetable, legume, edible podded, subgroup is replaced with Vegetable, legume, edible podded, subgroup 6A. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES B. Additional Changes In addition to format changes to the commodity terms, this document also revises certain commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180, subpart C and one change in subpart E. These revisions would replace certain commodity terms that are no longer used by EPA with the appropriate matching term in the ‘‘Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary.’’ For example: 1. Cotton, oil and Peanut oil are replaced with Cotton, refined oil and Peanut, refined oil. 2. Cacao and Cacao bean are replaced with Cacao bean, bean. 3. Coffee and Coffee, bean are replaced with Coffee, bean, green. 4. Coffee, postharvest is replaced with Coffee, bean, roasted bean, postharvest. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:42 Oct 09, 2008 Jkt 217001 5. Corn, field, grain, flour is replaced with Corn, field, flour. 6. Date is replaced with Date, dried fruit. 7. Grass, fodder is replaced with Grass, straw. 8. Guar is replaced with Guar, seed. 9. Hop is replaced with Hop, dried cones. 10. Mulberry, Indian is replaced with Noni. 11. Oat milling fractions (except flour) and Oat, milled fractions (except flour) are replaced with Oat, groats/rolled oats. 12. Pea, vines is replaced with Pea, field, vines. 13. Peavine, hay is replaced with Pea, field, hay. 14. Soybean, aspirated grain fractions is replaced with Grain, aspirated fractions. 15. Wheat, grain, milled byproducts and Wheat, milled feed fractions are replaced with Wheat, milled byproducts. 16. In § 180.2003, the commodity term ‘‘eggs’’ is changed to ‘‘egg.’’ This change was not included in the June 2008 proposed rule, however, EPA has previously made this same change throughout subparts A and C, therefore, this amendment merely conforms subpart E to changes that have already been made to the terminology in part 180. In certain instances, more than one replacement commodity term exists in the ‘‘Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary’’ for the older commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180, subpart C. For example, the preferred commodity terms for Grass are Grass, forage and Grass, hay. Certain revisions included in this document were made by choosing a replacement commodity term from the ‘‘Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary’’ based on the old commodity term and existing tolerances for related food or feed commodities. These changes are specific to the amended sections and paragraphs in 40 CFR part 180, supbart C. For example: In § 180.154(a) the commodity term Alfalfa is replaced with Alfalfa, forage. Alfalfa, forage and Alfalfa, hay are preferred commodity terms for Alfalfa. Alfalfa, forage was chosen to replace Alfalfa since tolerances are established for Alfalfa, hay. In § 180.121(e), Beet (with or without tops) is replaced with Beet, garden, roots. Beet, garden, roots and Beet, garden, tops are the preferred commodity terms for Beet (with or without tops). Beet, garden, roots was chosen since a tolerance is established for Beet, garden, tops. In § 180.408(a), Beet, garden is replaced with Beet, PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 garden, roots. A tolerance is established for Beet, garden, tops. In § 180.154(a), Birdfoot trefoil is replaced with Trefoil, forage. Trefoil, forage and Trefoil, hay are the preferred commodity terms for Birdfoot trefoil. Trefoil, forage was chosen since a tolerance is established for Trefoil, hay. In § 180.154(a), Clover is replaced with Clover, forage. Clover, forage and Clover, hay are preferred commodity terms for Clover. Clover, forage was chosen since tolerances are established for Clover, hay. In § 180.288(a), the commodity term Corn, forage is replaced with Corn, field, forage. Corn, field, forage, and Corn, sweet, forage are preferred commodity terms for Corn, forage. Since there are no tolerances for sweet corn forage, Corn, field, forage was chosen to replace Corn, forage. In § 180.111(a)(1) the commodity term Grass is replaced with Grass, forage. The preferred terms for Grass are Grass, forage and Grass, hay. Grass, forage was chosen since tolerances are established for Grass, hay. In § 180.121(e), Rutabagas (with or without tops) is replaced with Rutabaga, roots. Rutabaga, roots and Rutabaga, tops are the preferred terms for Rutabagas (with or without tops). Rutabaga, roots was chosen since a tolerance is established for Rutabaga tops. In § 180.121(e), Turnip (with or without tops) is replaced with Turnip, roots since a tolerance is established for Turnip, greens. This document also deletes certain terms that are not needed to identify the tolerance commodities. Examples: 1. The term Peanut, meat (hulls removed) is changed to Peanut. 2. The term Banana, pulp (no peel) is changed to Banana, pulp. 3. The commodity term Peach (includes nectarines) is changed to Peach; the ‘‘Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary’’ uses the term Peach to include peach and nectarines. 4. The terms Horseradish, roots and Potato, tuber are changed to Horseradish and Potato, respectively. 5. The terms Garlic, bulb and Garlic (bulb) are changed to Garlic. 6. The terms Plum (fresh) and Pineapple, fresh are changed to Plum and Pineapple, respectively. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This document makes technical amendments to the Code of Federal Regulations which have no substantive impact on the underlying regulations, and does not otherwise impose or E:\FR\FM\10OCR1.SGM 10OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 198 / Friday, October 10, 2008 / Rules and Regulations amend any requirements. As such, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that a technical amendment is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by OMB under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because this final rule has been exempted from review under Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, 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). This rule does not contain any information collections subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104–4). Nor does it require any special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); or OMB review or any Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997). This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104– 113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) 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 impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental organizations. After considering the economic impacts of today’s rule on small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. These technical amendments to the Code of Federal Regulations have no substantive impact on the underyling regulations. These technical amendments will not have any negative economic impact on any entities, including small entities. In addition, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Executive Order 13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.’’ ‘‘Policies that have federalism implications’’ is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have ‘‘substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.’’ This rule directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers and food retailers, not States. This action does not alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of section 408(n)(4) of the FFDCA. For these same reasons, the Agency has determined that this rule does not have any ‘‘tribal implications’’ as described in Executive Order 13175, entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 60153 67249, November 6, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have tribal implications.’’ ‘‘Policies that have tribal implications’’ is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have ‘‘substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.’’ This rule will not have substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this rule.

ACTION: Final rule. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This rule identifies communities, where the sale of flood insurance has been authorized under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), that are scheduled for suspension on the effective dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the floodplain management requirements of the program. If the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) receives documentation that the community has adopted the required floodplain management measures prior to the effective suspension date given in this rule, the suspension will not occur and a notice of this will be provided by publication in the Federal Register on a subsequent date. DATES: Effective Dates: The effective date of each community’s scheduled suspension is the third date (‘‘Susp.’’) listed in the third column of the following tables. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you want to determine whether a particular community was suspended on the suspension date or for further information, contact David Stearrett, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–2953. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase flood insurance which is generally not otherwise available. In return, communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:42 Oct 09, 2008 Jkt 217001 aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. Section 1315 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage as authorized under the NFIP, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.; unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer meet that statutory requirement for compliance with program regulations, 44 CFR part 59. Accordingly, the communities will be suspended on the effective date in the third column. As of that date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the community. However, some of these communities may adopt and submit the required documentation of legally enforceable floodplain management measures after this rule is published but prior to the actual suspension date. These communities will not be suspended and will continue their eligibility for the sale of insurance. A notice withdrawing the suspension of the communities will be published in the Federal Register. Previously, FEMA has identified the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in these communities by publishing a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The date of the FIRM, if one has been published, is indicated in the fourth column of the table. No direct Federal financial assistance (except assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act not in connection with a flood) may legally be provided for construction or acquisition of buildings in identified SFHAs for communities not participating in the NFIP and identified for more than a year, on FEMA’s initial flood insurance map of the community as having flood-prone areas (section 202(a) of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4106(a), as amended). This prohibition against certain types of Federal assistance becomes effective for the communities listed on the date shown in the last column. The Administrator finds that notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and unnecessary because communities listed in this final rule have been adequately notified. Each community receives 6-month, 90-day, and 30-day notification letters addressed to the Chief Executive Officer stating that the community will be suspended unless the required PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 floodplain management measures are met prior to the effective suspension date. Since these notifications were made, this final rule may take effect within less than 30 days. National Environmental Policy Act. This rule is categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental Considerations. No environmental impact assessment has been prepared. Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Administrator has determined that this rule is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act because the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed no longer comply with the statutory requirements, and after the effective date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the communities unless remedial action takes place. Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735. Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This rule involves no policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988. Paperwork Reduction Act. This rule does not involve any collection of information for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. List of Subjects in 44 CFR Part 64 Flood insurance, Floodplains.

II. Background

A. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has developed a commodity 
vocabulary database entitled ``Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary.'' 
The database was developed to consolidate all the major OPP commodity 
vocabularies into one standardized vocabulary. As a result, all future 
pesticide tolerances issued under 40 CFR part 180 will use the 
``preferred commodity term'' as listed in the aforementioned database. 
Previously, seven documents in a series of documents revising the 
terminology of commodity terms currently in tolerances in 40 CFR part 
180 have been published. Final Rules, revising pesticide tolerance 
nomenclature, were published in the Federal Register on June 19, 2002 
(67 FR 41802) (FRL-6835-2); June 21, 2002 (67 FR 42392) (FRL-7180-1); 
July 1, 2003 (68 FR

[[Page 60152]]

39428) (FRL-7308-9) and (68 FR 39435)(FRL-7316-9); December 13, 2006 
(71 FR 74802) (FRL-8064-3); and September 18, 2007 (72 FR 53134)(FRL-
8126-5); corrected on October 31, 2007 (72 FR 61535)(FRL-8151-4).
    In the Federal Register of June 18, 2008 (73 FR 34678), EPA issued 
a proposed rule proposing to revise the terminology for certain 
commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180, subparts A, C and E. The issuance 
of this document finalizes the changes proposed in the June 18, 2008 
issue of the Federal Register. EPA is making the following format 
changes to the terminology of the commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180 to 
the extent the terminology is not already in this format:
    1. The first letter of the commodity term is capitalized. All other 
letters, including the first letter of proper names, are changed to 
lower case.
    2. Commodity terms are listed in the singular, although there are 
the following exceptions: leaves, roots, tops, greens, hulls, vines, 
fractions, shoots, and byproducts.
    3. Commodity terms are amended so that generic terms precede 
modifying terms. Example - Aspirated grain fractions is replaced with 
Grain, aspirated fractions.
    4. Crop group terms are revised to standardize with the ``Food and 
Feed Commodity Vocabulary.'' Examples are:
     Vegetable, leafy greens, except Brassica, group 4 is 
replaced with Vegetable, leafy, except brassica, group 4.
     Legume vegetables, succulent or dried (except soybean) is 
replaced with Vegetable, legume, group 6, except soybean.
     Vegetable, legume, edible podded, subgroup is replaced 
with Vegetable, legume, edible podded, subgroup 6A.

B. Additional Changes

    In addition to format changes to the commodity terms, this document 
also revises certain commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180, subpart C and 
one change in subpart E. These revisions would replace certain 
commodity terms that are no longer used by EPA with the appropriate 
matching term in the ``Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary.'' For 
example:
    1. Cotton, oil and Peanut oil are replaced with Cotton, refined oil 
and Peanut, refined oil.
    2. Cacao and Cacao bean are replaced with Cacao bean, bean.
    3. Coffee and Coffee, bean are replaced with Coffee, bean, green.
    4. Coffee, postharvest is replaced with Coffee, bean, roasted bean, 
postharvest.
    5. Corn, field, grain, flour is replaced with Corn, field, flour.
    6. Date is replaced with Date, dried fruit.
    7. Grass, fodder is replaced with Grass, straw.
    8. Guar is replaced with Guar, seed.
    9. Hop is replaced with Hop, dried cones.
    10. Mulberry, Indian is replaced with Noni.
    11. Oat milling fractions (except flour) and Oat, milled fractions 
(except flour) are replaced with Oat, groats/rolled oats.
    12. Pea, vines is replaced with Pea, field, vines.
    13. Peavine, hay is replaced with Pea, field, hay.
    14. Soybean, aspirated grain fractions is replaced with Grain, 
aspirated fractions.
    15. Wheat, grain, milled byproducts and Wheat, milled feed 
fractions are replaced with Wheat, milled byproducts.
    16. In Sec.  180.2003, the commodity term ``eggs'' is changed to 
``egg.'' This change was not included in the June 2008 proposed rule, 
however, EPA has previously made this same change throughout subparts A 
and C, therefore, this amendment merely conforms subpart E to changes 
that have already been made to the terminology in part 180.
    In certain instances, more than one replacement commodity term 
exists in the ``Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary'' for the older 
commodity terms in 40 CFR part 180, subpart C. For example, the 
preferred commodity terms for Grass are Grass, forage and Grass, hay. 
Certain revisions included in this document were made by choosing a 
replacement commodity term from the ``Food and Feed Commodity 
Vocabulary'' based on the old commodity term and existing tolerances 
for related food or feed commodities. These changes are specific to the 
amended sections and paragraphs in 40 CFR part 180, supbart C. For 
example:
    In Sec.  180.154(a) the commodity term Alfalfa is replaced with 
Alfalfa, forage. Alfalfa, forage and Alfalfa, hay are preferred 
commodity terms for Alfalfa. Alfalfa, forage was chosen to replace 
Alfalfa since tolerances are established for Alfalfa, hay.
    In Sec.  180.121(e), Beet (with or without tops) is replaced with 
Beet, garden, roots. Beet, garden, roots and Beet, garden, tops are the 
preferred commodity terms for Beet (with or without tops). Beet, 
garden, roots was chosen since a tolerance is established for Beet, 
garden, tops. In Sec.  180.408(a), Beet, garden is replaced with Beet, 
garden, roots. A tolerance is established for Beet, garden, tops.
    In Sec.  180.154(a), Birdfoot trefoil is replaced with Trefoil, 
forage. Trefoil, forage and Trefoil, hay are the preferred commodity 
terms for Birdfoot trefoil. Trefoil, forage was chosen since a 
tolerance is established for Trefoil, hay.
    In Sec.  180.154(a), Clover is replaced with Clover, forage. 
Clover, forage and Clover, hay are preferred commodity terms for 
Clover. Clover, forage was chosen since tolerances are established for 
Clover, hay.
    In Sec.  180.288(a), the commodity term Corn, forage is replaced 
with Corn, field, forage. Corn, field, forage, and Corn, sweet, forage 
are preferred commodity terms for Corn, forage. Since there are no 
tolerances for sweet corn forage, Corn, field, forage was chosen to 
replace Corn, forage.
    In Sec.  180.111(a)(1) the commodity term Grass is replaced with 
Grass, forage. The preferred terms for Grass are Grass, forage and 
Grass, hay. Grass, forage was chosen since tolerances are established 
for Grass, hay.
    In Sec.  180.121(e), Rutabagas (with or without tops) is replaced 
with Rutabaga, roots. Rutabaga, roots and Rutabaga, tops are the 
preferred terms for Rutabagas (with or without tops). Rutabaga, roots 
was chosen since a tolerance is established for Rutabaga tops.
    In Sec.  180.121(e), Turnip (with or without tops) is replaced with 
Turnip, roots since a tolerance is established for Turnip, greens.
    This document also deletes certain terms that are not needed to 
identify the tolerance commodities.
Examples:
    1. The term Peanut, meat (hulls removed) is changed to Peanut.
    2. The term Banana, pulp (no peel) is changed to Banana, pulp.
    3. The commodity term Peach (includes nectarines) is changed to 
Peach; the ``Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary'' uses the term Peach 
to include peach and nectarines.
    4. The terms Horseradish, roots and Potato, tuber are changed to 
Horseradish and Potato, respectively.
    5. The terms Garlic, bulb and Garlic (bulb) are changed to Garlic.
    6. The terms Plum (fresh) and Pineapple, fresh are changed to Plum 
and Pineapple, respectively.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This document makes technical amendments to the Code of Federal 
Regulations which have no substantive impact on the underlying 
regulations, and does not otherwise impose or

[[Page 60153]]

amend any requirements. As such, the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) has determined that a technical amendment is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' subject to review by OMB under Executive Order 
12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 
1993). Because this final rule has been exempted from review under 
Executive Order 12866 due to its lack of significance, 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). This rule does not contain any information collections 
subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), 44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq., or impose any enforceable duty or contain any 
unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates 
Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). Nor does it require any 
special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled Federal 
Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and 
Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994); or OMB review 
or any Agency action under Executive Order 13045, entitled Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997). This action does not involve any technical 
standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary 
consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National 
Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 
104-113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). The Regulatory Flexibility 
Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) 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 impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, 
and small governmental organizations. After considering the economic 
impacts of today's rule on small entities, I certify that this action 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities. These technical amendments to the Code of Federal 
Regulations have no substantive impact on the underyling regulations. 
These technical amendments will not have any negative economic impact 
on any entities, including small entities. In addition, the Agency has 
determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect 
on States, on the relationship between the national government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, 
entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). Executive Order 
13132 requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure 
``meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the 
development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.'' 
``Policies that have federalism implications'' is defined in the 
Executive Order to include regulations that have ``substantial direct 
effects on the States, on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government.'' This rule 
directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers and food 
retailers, not States. This action does not alter the relationships or 
distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in 
the preemption provisions of section 408(n)(4) of the FFDCA. For these 
same reasons, the Agency has determined that this rule does not have 
any ``tribal implications'' as described in Executive Order 13175, 
entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments 
(65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). Executive Order 13175, requires EPA to 
develop an accountable process to ensure ``meaningful and timely input 
by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have 
tribal implications.'' ``Policies that have tribal implications'' is 
defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have 
``substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the 
relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes, or 
on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes.'' This rule will not have substantial 
direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the 
Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power 
and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, 
as specified in Executive Order 13175. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does 
not apply to this rule.
