II. Regulatory History On June 30, 2004, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Review and Update of Standards for Marine Equipment’’ in the Federal Register (69 FR 39742). We received 13 letters commenting on the proposed rule. Two commenters PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 suggested we hold a public meeting to discuss changes they recommended. However, as those recommendations are beyond the scope of this rulemaking, we did not adopt this suggestion and no public meeting was held. In numerous cases, the exact designation of standards that we incorporate by reference has changed between the NPRM and this final rule. These changes have been made to bring our regulatory text into compliance with Office of the Federal Register technical requirements governing incorporations by reference, and are intended to help the public better identify exactly which standards we intend to enforce. They are not intended to be substantive changes and receive no further discussion. Other changes are relatively few in number and may or may not be substantive. They are discussed in ‘‘IV. Discussion of Comments and Changes.’’ Overall, the changes we have made since publishing the NPRM are either non-substantive or are the logical outgrowth of the NPRM. A supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) is, therefore, unnecessary, and would delay completion of this rulemaking. Thus, we find good cause under 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(B) to proceed with publication of this final rule without an SNPRM. III. Background and Purpose The Coast Guard has actively participated in the development of industry standards of safety for marine equipment at the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the ASTM International, and other standards-setting bodies that belong to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This rule is part of an ongoing effort for regulatory review and reform, with the goals of: (1) Updating references to incorporated standards that have been modified; (2) removing obsolete rules; (3) making our regulations performancebased; and (4) expanding efforts to promote consensual rulemaking. IV. Discussion of Comments and Changes The NPRM discusses the changes made by this rule in detail. In general, our changes fall into eight categories: (1) Revisions to authority citations. (2) Correction of prior inadvertent errors or deletions. (3) Deletion of obsolete or superfluous material. (4) Adoption of The International System of Units (metric) measurements. E:\FR\FM\31OCR4.SGM 31OCR4 ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with RULES4 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 212 / Friday, October 31, 2008 / Rules and Regulations (5) Reduction of regulatory thresholds. (6) Stylistic revisions. (7) Updating cross references. (8) Updating references to industry standards. This rule affects only inspected commercial vessels. It imposes no new requirements and, therefore, requires no phase-in period. The Coast Guard received 13 letters commenting on the NPRM. Many of the comments suggested changes that go beyond the scope of this rulemaking, including the adoption of newer industry standards. This rulemaking is designed to update references to industry standards, but is not intended to introduce new standards that would change the substance of our regulations. We have not adopted any of these suggestions and, in most cases, do not discuss their merits in this document. Nevertheless, we appreciate these comments and may consider them in the future, should we ever undertake a more substantive revision of our rules. Four commenters stated that two major documents developed by the American Petroleum Institute (API), API RP–14F and API RP–14FZ, were not recognized when creating these rules and merit consideration. We did not consider this recommendation because it is beyond the scope of this rulemaking. Two commenters strongly recommended that the Coast Guard hold a public meeting to identify cable designs, their functional attributes, and their ultimate recognition as acceptable designs for the marine industry. As previously discussed, these suggestions are beyond the scope of this rulemaking and we did not adopt this recommendation. One commenter stated that, because this rulemaking is applicable to low voltage power control and medium voltage insulated conductor constructions, the optional insulation systems and armor designs available for these cables should be discussed during this revision cycle to serve the purpose of updating and including state-of-theart technology. This is beyond the scope of this rulemaking, but we point out that new state-of-the-art technologies can be submitted for equivalency review. One commenter stated that the name of ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) has changed to American Standards for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International. The actual name is now ASTM International, and we have changed the text accordingly. One commenter suggested that we review the wording of § 56.10–1(b). We have reworded the paragraph to VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Oct 30, 2008 Jkt 217001 incorporate what we believe to be the commenter’s concern. One commenter suggested that we incorporate a reference to ‘‘similar junction equipment’’ in § 56.10–5(c)(6). We have revised the paragraph accordingly. One commenter suggested a minor rewording of § 56.25–5, which we have incorporated. One commenter asked us to remove the reference to threaded studs in § 56.25–20(d), saying that a stud is an unthreaded pin used in guiding the application. We disagree and have retained the language used in the NPRM. Studs have threads similar to bolts, but have no heads. One commenter asked us to make minor revisions to the wording of § 56.25–20(e). Because our intention is to reproduce ASME–B31.1, part 108.5.1, we decline this request and have retained the language of the NPRM. One commenter asked us to replace, in § 56.30–20(d), the phrase ‘‘No pipe * * *’’ with ‘‘No steel pipe * * *.’’ We do not think this change is necessary, but have revised the language in the NPRM to omit a reference to ANSI standard weight. One commenter requested minor revisions to § 56.60–3(b). Because our intention is to reproduce ASME–B31.1 part 124.2.C, we decline this request and have retained the language of the NPRM. One commenter asked us to revise the language of § 92.15–10(d). The commenter’s proposed revision was identical to the text in the NPRM. However, we have revised the paragraph to include a reference to 46 CFR 97.80– 1. Three commenters requested that in § 110.10–1, we replace the reference to IEEE Std 45–1998 with a reference to a newer standard, IEEE Std 45–2002. A fourth commenter asked us to add several International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards to this section. These changes are outside the scope of the rulemaking. Note that in some cases, the additional standards these commenters suggest need not be made explicit in the regulatory text; compliance with those standards is already required by the standards that we do list. One commenter asked us to amend § 111.01–9 to make it clear that there is no exact correlation between NEMA types and IEC IP types. We have retained the NPRM version of this section, which does not correlate the NEMA and IEC types, but provides the minimum NEMA and IEC IP protection required. The rule provides two separate, independent schemes for PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 65157 achieving protection. The user will follow either NEMA or IEC IP types. Three commenters requested that we change the title of § 111.05–7 and substitute ‘‘All cables shall be installed in accordance with requirements of section 25 of IEEE 45–2002’’ for the NPRM text, because the section should apply not only to armored cable but to all cable, thus providing the total installation requirements. We did not accept this recommendation because it is outside the scope of this rulemaking. Four commenters pointed out that the reference in § 111.30–19(a)(1) to ‘‘Section 7.10’’ is to IEEE 45–1998, not the newer IEEE 45–2002 revision. They asked us to incorporate the 2002 standards in order to provide a higher level of safety. This recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. One commenter asked us to change the minimum cable size in § 111.30– 19(b)(3) from 14 AWG to 15 AWG, to be on par with IEC. This recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. Three commenters suggested that the inclusion of § 111.60–1(c) as it appeared in the NPRM is redundant, because T/ N cable construction is covered in IEEE 1580, which is referred to in paragraph (a) of the section. We agree and have deleted the NPRM language of paragraph (c). Three commenters pointed out that § 111.60–1(d), as it appeared in the NPRM, incorrectly referenced IEEE Std 45, which does not provide cable construction data. We agree that the correct reference is to IEEE 1580 and have revised this paragraph accordingly. One commenter asked us to amend § 111.60–2 to require the use of continuous corrugated metal clad armor or installation within continuous metal piping. This recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. One commenter stated that, in § 111.60–2, the reference to IEC 60332– 2 is incorrect and should be changed to IEC 60332–3–23. We agree that the reference in the NPRM is incorrect, but have corrected the reference to read IEC 60332–3–22. The same commenter also asked us to delete the reference in this section to ANSI/UL 1581 test VW–1, on the grounds that it is inferior to the other listed standards in evaluating flame propagation behavior of completed cable assemblies. This recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. Two commenters asked us to amend § 111.60–3 so that all cable to be installed as marine shipboard cable must meet the performance requirements in Table 24 of IEEE 45. We have retained the NPRM language. Table 24 of IEEE Std 45–2002 is meant for E:\FR\FM\31OCR4.SGM 31OCR4 ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with RULES4 65158 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 212 / Friday, October 31, 2008 / Rules and Regulations cable application, not cable performance requirements. Table 24 of IEEE Std 45– 2002 does not apply in whole to each cable construction standard recognized in § 111.60–1 of this subpart and is not applicable to this section. Three commenters asked us to replace the NPRM’s ‘‘must meet’’ in § 111.60– 3(a)(3) with ‘‘must be applied in accordance with,’’ for better clarity as to the correct ampacity. We agree and have changed the language accordingly. Three commenters asked us to replace the NPRM’s ‘‘be derated according to’’ in § 111.60–3(b)(1) with ‘‘be applied in accordance with.’’ We agree and have changed that language accordingly. However, we disagree with their additional comment that the reference in paragraph (b)(1) to Note 6 should be deleted because it requires no additional derating. We have retained the reference as Note 6 provides for additional derating of cables when the cable is double banked. One commenter suggested the use of ‘‘clause’’ instead of ‘‘paragraph’’ in § 111.60–3(b)(2) to conform to IEC usage. We have made the requested change here and throughout subpart 111.60. Three commenters asked us to remove the exception in § 111.60–5(a)(1) for section 25.11 of IEEE Std 45, saying the exception is not justified technically and that its removal would be consistent with § 111.60–19. We have retained the exception. Section 111.60–19 explicitly states one area where cable splicing is allowed and is only applicable to hazardous locations; splicing is only allowed in intrinsically safe locations. These locations, by definition, are low voltage applications. Three commenters asked us to broaden § 111.60–5(a)(2) so that it refers to all of IEC 60092–352, not just to clause 8 of that standard, because proper installation requires use of the entire standard. We agree and have changed the text accordingly. Two commenters asked us to revise § 111.60–5(c)(3) to permit the use of certain types of metal sheath as a grounding conductor. We have retained the NPRM language. The Coast Guard has a longstanding policy of not allowing any cable armor to be used as a grounding conductor. The requested change is a significant modification to our rules and is, therefore, beyond the scope of this rulemaking. One commenter asked us to revise § 111.60–11(c), but without apparent change. We have retained the NPRM language. Two commenters suggested deleting § 111.60–23 because its subject is addressed by IEEE 1580. Alternatively, VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Oct 30, 2008 Jkt 217001 they suggested revising the section ‘‘to correct the construction and installation.’’ We have retained the section as it appears in the NPRM. The requested change is beyond the scope of this rulemaking. Also, the restrictions of 46 CFR 111.60–23(c) cover a broader range of potential motions than those addressed in IEEE–1580, clauses 5.17.13 and 5.17.14. A detailed review of this issue is discussed in the Federal Register publications of June 4, 1996, page 28265, and May 1, 1997, page 23901. Prior to the publication of the existing rule, the Coast Guard conducted a complete review and revision of the regulations, bolstered by onsite observations, in order to determine the safe application of type MC cable aboard a vessel. One commenter asked us to revise § 111.60–23(b) to require continuous corrugation, and to make other wording changes. We have retained the NPRM language. Continuous corrugation is already required by paragraph (a) of this section. One commenter implied that we should omit §§ 111.105–3, 111.105– 31(e), and 111.105–41 because their content is covered by section 33 of IEEE Std 45–2002. We are retaining these provisions. Adoption of the 2002 standard would, in these cases, constitute substantive changes beyond the scope of this rulemaking. Three commenters asked us to revise § 111.105–17(a) to permit the use of Type MC–HL cable. This recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. Three commenters asked us to revise § 111.105–41 so that it specifically references clauses 22.7.2 and 33.7.3 of IEEE 45. We are retaining the current general reference to IEEE 45 because several of its clauses are applicable. One commenter called our attention to an incorrect reference in § 111.107–1. We have corrected the section so that it refers to IEEE–1202. Finally, one commenter suggested adding references, in § 113.30–25(j)(2), to IEC 60331–23 and IEC 60331–25. We are retaining the NPRM language for paragraph (j)(2). The recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. VI. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. V. Incorporation by Reference The Director of the Federal Register has approved the material in 46 CFR 52.01–1, 53.01–1, 54.01–1, 56.01–2, 58.03–1, 59.01–2, 62.05–1, 63.05–1, 76.01–2, 92.01–2, 110.10–1, 162.017–1, 170.015, and 175.600 for incorporation by reference under 5 U.S.C. 552 and 1 CFR part 51. Copies of the material are available from the sources listed in those sections. B. Benefits This rule will eliminate confusion caused by outdated and conflicting rules on the safety of marine engineering for owners, operators, and manufacturers of vessels. These changes will update outdated rules to meet current national and international standards. In addition, this rule will give the maritime industry clear instructions and descriptions of how to comply with various rules. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 A. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Assessment is unnecessary. We received 13 letters commenting on the NPRM. None of these letters suggested there would be additional costs to industry for compliance with these revised industry standards. Operators, owners, and manufacturers of vessels affected by this rule currently practice and adhere to national and international standards developed by organizations composed of representatives from a cross-section of interest groups affected by these standards. We estimate that this final rule will have no additional costs to industry. New vessels coming into service are equipped and built under the provisions and standards of this rule. These provisions and standards are not retroactive for owners and operators of existing vessels. Additionally, these owners and operators are not required to upgrade to the new standards if their equipment breaks down. Owners and operators of existing vessels have the option of repairing existing equipment or possibly installing similar equipment. These owners and operators may incur expected repair and replacement costs related to their existing equipment, but they will not incur additional mandatory costs associated with the provisions and requirements of this rule. If any owner or operator of an existing vessel of the current fleet chooses to upgrade, it is a voluntary upgrade. E:\FR\FM\31OCR4.SGM 31OCR4 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 212 / Friday, October 31, 2008 / Rules and Regulations C. Small Entities H. Civil Justice Reform Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we considered whether this rule will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it is not retroactive and because it imposes no mandatory costs on owners or operators of vessels. This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. D. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). E. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. This rule will revise outdated standards on safety of marine equipment with international and national standards created and approved in part by State and local governments that participate in organizations that develop national standards for marine operation and safety. F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions not specifically required by law. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with RULES4 G. Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Oct 30, 2008 Jkt 217001 I. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and will not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. J. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, 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. K. Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. L. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise be impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 65159 This rule uses voluntary consensus standards from the following organizations: American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) International, American National Standards Institute (ANSI), American Petroleum Institute (API), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Gas Association, ASTM International, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), International Maritime Organization (IMO), Instrument Society of America (ISA), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Manufacturers Standardization Society of the Valve and Fitting Industry, Inc. (MSS), Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Naval Publications and Forms Center (NPFC), Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. (UL). The sections that reference these consensus standards and the locations where these standards are available are listed in 46 CFR 52.01–1, 53.01–1, 54.01–1, 56.01–2, 58.03–1, 59.01–2, 62.05–1, 63.05–1, 76.01–2, 92.01–2, 110.10–1, 162.017–1, 170.015, and 175.600. M. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 5100.1 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded under the Instruction that there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2– 1, paragraph (34)(d) of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. This rule will replace outdated safety standards for marine equipment with current national and international standards, and therefore will not have any impact on the environment. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

It is the least of the values found for maximum allowable working pressure for any of the essential parts of the vessel by the principles given in paragraph (b) of this section and adjusted for any difference in static head that may exist between the part considered and the top of the vessel. (See Appendix 3 of section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (incorporated by reference; see 46 CFR 54.01–1.) (b) The maximum allowable working pressure for a vessel part is the maximum internal or external pressure, including the static head hereon, as determined by the rules and formulas in section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, together with the effect of any combination of loadings listed in UG–22 of section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (see 46 CFR 54.01–30) that are likely to occur, or the designated coincident operating temperature, excluding any metal thickness specified as corrosion allowance. (See UG–25 of section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.) (c) Maximum allowable working pressure may be determined for more than one designated operating temperature, using for each temperature the applicable allowable stress value.

II. Regulatory History

    On June 30, 2004, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled ``Review and Update of Standards for Marine Equipment'' 
in the Federal Register (69 FR 39742). We received 13 letters 
commenting on the proposed rule. Two commenters suggested we hold a 
public meeting to discuss changes they recommended. However, as those 
recommendations are beyond the scope of this rulemaking, we did not 
adopt this suggestion and no public meeting was held.
    In numerous cases, the exact designation of standards that we 
incorporate by reference has changed between the NPRM and this final 
rule. These changes have been made to bring our regulatory text into 
compliance with Office of the Federal Register technical requirements 
governing incorporations by reference, and are intended to help the 
public better identify exactly which standards we intend to enforce. 
They are not intended to be substantive changes and receive no further 
discussion.
    Other changes are relatively few in number and may or may not be 
substantive. They are discussed in ``IV. Discussion of Comments and 
Changes.'' Overall, the changes we have made since publishing the NPRM 
are either non-substantive or are the logical outgrowth of the NPRM. A 
supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) is, therefore, 
unnecessary, and would delay completion of this rulemaking. Thus, we 
find good cause under 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(B) to proceed with publication of 
this final rule without an SNPRM.

III. Background and Purpose

    The Coast Guard has actively participated in the development of 
industry standards of safety for marine equipment at the International 
Maritime Organization (IMO), the International Organization for 
Standardization (ISO), the ASTM International, and other standards-
setting bodies that belong to the American National Standards Institute 
(ANSI).
    This rule is part of an ongoing effort for regulatory review and 
reform, with the goals of: (1) Updating references to incorporated 
standards that have been modified; (2) removing obsolete rules; (3) 
making our regulations performance-based; and (4) expanding efforts to 
promote consensual rulemaking.

IV. Discussion of Comments and Changes

    The NPRM discusses the changes made by this rule in detail. In 
general, our changes fall into eight categories:
    (1) Revisions to authority citations.
    (2) Correction of prior inadvertent errors or deletions.
    (3) Deletion of obsolete or superfluous material.
    (4) Adoption of The International System of Units (metric) 
measurements.

[[Page 65157]]

    (5) Reduction of regulatory thresholds.
    (6) Stylistic revisions.
    (7) Updating cross references.
    (8) Updating references to industry standards.
    This rule affects only inspected commercial vessels. It imposes no 
new requirements and, therefore, requires no phase-in period.
    The Coast Guard received 13 letters commenting on the NPRM. Many of 
the comments suggested changes that go beyond the scope of this 
rulemaking, including the adoption of newer industry standards. This 
rulemaking is designed to update references to industry standards, but 
is not intended to introduce new standards that would change the 
substance of our regulations. We have not adopted any of these 
suggestions and, in most cases, do not discuss their merits in this 
document. Nevertheless, we appreciate these comments and may consider 
them in the future, should we ever undertake a more substantive 
revision of our rules.
    Four commenters stated that two major documents developed by the 
American Petroleum Institute (API), API RP-14F and API RP-14FZ, were 
not recognized when creating these rules and merit consideration. We 
did not consider this recommendation because it is beyond the scope of 
this rulemaking.
    Two commenters strongly recommended that the Coast Guard hold a 
public meeting to identify cable designs, their functional attributes, 
and their ultimate recognition as acceptable designs for the marine 
industry. As previously discussed, these suggestions are beyond the 
scope of this rulemaking and we did not adopt this recommendation.
    One commenter stated that, because this rulemaking is applicable to 
low voltage power control and medium voltage insulated conductor 
constructions, the optional insulation systems and armor designs 
available for these cables should be discussed during this revision 
cycle to serve the purpose of updating and including state-of-the-art 
technology. This is beyond the scope of this rulemaking, but we point 
out that new state-of-the-art technologies can be submitted for 
equivalency review.
    One commenter stated that the name of ASTM (American Society for 
Testing and Materials) has changed to American Standards for Testing 
and Materials (ASTM) International. The actual name is now ASTM 
International, and we have changed the text accordingly.
    One commenter suggested that we review the wording of Sec.  56.10-
1(b). We have reworded the paragraph to incorporate what we believe to 
be the commenter's concern.
    One commenter suggested that we incorporate a reference to 
``similar junction equipment'' in Sec.  56.10-5(c)(6). We have revised 
the paragraph accordingly.
    One commenter suggested a minor rewording of Sec.  56.25-5, which 
we have incorporated.
    One commenter asked us to remove the reference to threaded studs in 
Sec.  56.25-20(d), saying that a stud is an unthreaded pin used in 
guiding the application. We disagree and have retained the language 
used in the NPRM. Studs have threads similar to bolts, but have no 
heads.
    One commenter asked us to make minor revisions to the wording of 
Sec.  56.25-20(e). Because our intention is to reproduce ASME-B31.1, 
part 108.5.1, we decline this request and have retained the language of 
the NPRM.
    One commenter asked us to replace, in Sec.  56.30-20(d), the phrase 
``No pipe * * *'' with ``No steel pipe * * *.'' We do not think this 
change is necessary, but have revised the language in the NPRM to omit 
a reference to ANSI standard weight.
    One commenter requested minor revisions to Sec.  56.60-3(b). 
Because our intention is to reproduce ASME-B31.1 part 124.2.C, we 
decline this request and have retained the language of the NPRM.
    One commenter asked us to revise the language of Sec.  92.15-10(d). 
The commenter's proposed revision was identical to the text in the 
NPRM. However, we have revised the paragraph to include a reference to 
46 CFR 97.80-1.
    Three commenters requested that in Sec.  110.10-1, we replace the 
reference to IEEE Std 45-1998 with a reference to a newer standard, 
IEEE Std 45-2002. A fourth commenter asked us to add several 
International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards to this 
section. These changes are outside the scope of the rulemaking. Note 
that in some cases, the additional standards these commenters suggest 
need not be made explicit in the regulatory text; compliance with those 
standards is already required by the standards that we do list.
    One commenter asked us to amend Sec.  111.01-9 to make it clear 
that there is no exact correlation between NEMA types and IEC IP types. 
We have retained the NPRM version of this section, which does not 
correlate the NEMA and IEC types, but provides the minimum NEMA and IEC 
IP protection required. The rule provides two separate, independent 
schemes for achieving protection. The user will follow either NEMA or 
IEC IP types.
    Three commenters requested that we change the title of Sec.  
111.05-7 and substitute ``All cables shall be installed in accordance 
with requirements of section 25 of IEEE 45-2002'' for the NPRM text, 
because the section should apply not only to armored cable but to all 
cable, thus providing the total installation requirements. We did not 
accept this recommendation because it is outside the scope of this 
rulemaking.
    Four commenters pointed out that the reference in Sec.  111.30-
19(a)(1) to ``Section 7.10'' is to IEEE 45-1998, not the newer IEEE 45-
2002 revision. They asked us to incorporate the 2002 standards in order 
to provide a higher level of safety. This recommendation is outside the 
scope of this rulemaking.
    One commenter asked us to change the minimum cable size in Sec.  
111.30-19(b)(3) from 14 AWG to 15 AWG, to be on par with IEC. This 
recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking.
    Three commenters suggested that the inclusion of Sec.  111.60-1(c) 
as it appeared in the NPRM is redundant, because T/N cable construction 
is covered in IEEE 1580, which is referred to in paragraph (a) of the 
section. We agree and have deleted the NPRM language of paragraph (c).
    Three commenters pointed out that Sec.  111.60-1(d), as it appeared 
in the NPRM, incorrectly referenced IEEE Std 45, which does not provide 
cable construction data. We agree that the correct reference is to IEEE 
1580 and have revised this paragraph accordingly.
    One commenter asked us to amend Sec.  111.60-2 to require the use 
of continuous corrugated metal clad armor or installation within 
continuous metal piping. This recommendation is outside the scope of 
this rulemaking.
    One commenter stated that, in Sec.  111.60-2, the reference to IEC 
60332-2 is incorrect and should be changed to IEC 60332-3-23. We agree 
that the reference in the NPRM is incorrect, but have corrected the 
reference to read IEC 60332-3-22. The same commenter also asked us to 
delete the reference in this section to ANSI/UL 1581 test VW-1, on the 
grounds that it is inferior to the other listed standards in evaluating 
flame propagation behavior of completed cable assemblies. This 
recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking.
    Two commenters asked us to amend Sec.  111.60-3 so that all cable 
to be installed as marine shipboard cable must meet the performance 
requirements in Table 24 of IEEE 45. We have retained the NPRM 
language. Table 24 of IEEE Std 45-2002 is meant for

[[Page 65158]]

cable application, not cable performance requirements. Table 24 of IEEE 
Std 45-2002 does not apply in whole to each cable construction standard 
recognized in Sec.  111.60-1 of this subpart and is not applicable to 
this section.
    Three commenters asked us to replace the NPRM's ``must meet'' in 
Sec.  111.60-3(a)(3) with ``must be applied in accordance with,'' for 
better clarity as to the correct ampacity. We agree and have changed 
the language accordingly.
    Three commenters asked us to replace the NPRM's ``be derated 
according to'' in Sec.  111.60-3(b)(1) with ``be applied in accordance 
with.'' We agree and have changed that language accordingly. However, 
we disagree with their additional comment that the reference in 
paragraph (b)(1) to Note 6 should be deleted because it requires no 
additional derating. We have retained the reference as Note 6 provides 
for additional derating of cables when the cable is double banked.
    One commenter suggested the use of ``clause'' instead of 
``paragraph'' in Sec.  111.60-3(b)(2) to conform to IEC usage. We have 
made the requested change here and throughout subpart 111.60.
    Three commenters asked us to remove the exception in Sec.  111.60-
5(a)(1) for section 25.11 of IEEE Std 45, saying the exception is not 
justified technically and that its removal would be consistent with 
Sec.  111.60-19. We have retained the exception. Section 111.60-19 
explicitly states one area where cable splicing is allowed and is only 
applicable to hazardous locations; splicing is only allowed in 
intrinsically safe locations. These locations, by definition, are low 
voltage applications.
    Three commenters asked us to broaden Sec.  111.60-5(a)(2) so that 
it refers to all of IEC 60092-352, not just to clause 8 of that 
standard, because proper installation requires use of the entire 
standard. We agree and have changed the text accordingly.
    Two commenters asked us to revise Sec.  111.60-5(c)(3) to permit 
the use of certain types of metal sheath as a grounding conductor. We 
have retained the NPRM language. The Coast Guard has a longstanding 
policy of not allowing any cable armor to be used as a grounding 
conductor. The requested change is a significant modification to our 
rules and is, therefore, beyond the scope of this rulemaking.
    One commenter asked us to revise Sec.  111.60-11(c), but without 
apparent change. We have retained the NPRM language.
    Two commenters suggested deleting Sec.  111.60-23 because its 
subject is addressed by IEEE 1580. Alternatively, they suggested 
revising the section ``to correct the construction and installation.'' 
We have retained the section as it appears in the NPRM. The requested 
change is beyond the scope of this rulemaking. Also, the restrictions 
of 46 CFR 111.60-23(c) cover a broader range of potential motions than 
those addressed in IEEE-1580, clauses 5.17.13 and 5.17.14. A detailed 
review of this issue is discussed in the Federal Register publications 
of June 4, 1996, page 28265, and May 1, 1997, page 23901. Prior to the 
publication of the existing rule, the Coast Guard conducted a complete 
review and revision of the regulations, bolstered by onsite 
observations, in order to determine the safe application of type MC 
cable aboard a vessel.
    One commenter asked us to revise Sec.  111.60-23(b) to require 
continuous corrugation, and to make other wording changes. We have 
retained the NPRM language. Continuous corrugation is already required 
by paragraph (a) of this section.
    One commenter implied that we should omit Sec. Sec.  111.105-3, 
111.105-31(e), and 111.105-41 because their content is covered by 
section 33 of IEEE Std 45-2002. We are retaining these provisions. 
Adoption of the 2002 standard would, in these cases, constitute 
substantive changes beyond the scope of this rulemaking.
    Three commenters asked us to revise Sec.  111.105-17(a) to permit 
the use of Type MC-HL cable. This recommendation is outside the scope 
of this rulemaking.
    Three commenters asked us to revise Sec.  111.105-41 so that it 
specifically references clauses 22.7.2 and 33.7.3 of IEEE 45. We are 
retaining the current general reference to IEEE 45 because several of 
its clauses are applicable.
    One commenter called our attention to an incorrect reference in 
Sec.  111.107-1. We have corrected the section so that it refers to 
IEEE-1202.
    Finally, one commenter suggested adding references, in Sec.  
113.30-25(j)(2), to IEC 60331-23 and IEC 60331-25. We are retaining the 
NPRM language for paragraph (j)(2). The recommendation is outside the 
scope of this rulemaking.

V. Incorporation by Reference

    The Director of the Federal Register has approved the material in 
46 CFR 52.01-1, 53.01-1, 54.01-1, 56.01-2, 58.03-1, 59.01-2, 62.05-1, 
63.05-1, 76.01-2, 92.01-2, 110.10-1, 162.017-1, 170.015, and 175.600 
for incorporation by reference under 5 U.S.C. 552 and 1 CFR part 51. 
Copies of the material are available from the sources listed in those 
sections.

VI. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not 
require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 
6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order. We expect the economic impact of this 
rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Assessment is unnecessary.
    We received 13 letters commenting on the NPRM. None of these 
letters suggested there would be additional costs to industry for 
compliance with these revised industry standards.
    Operators, owners, and manufacturers of vessels affected by this 
rule currently practice and adhere to national and international 
standards developed by organizations composed of representatives from a 
cross-section of interest groups affected by these standards.
    We estimate that this final rule will have no additional costs to 
industry. New vessels coming into service are equipped and built under 
the provisions and standards of this rule.
    These provisions and standards are not retroactive for owners and 
operators of existing vessels. Additionally, these owners and operators 
are not required to upgrade to the new standards if their equipment 
breaks down. Owners and operators of existing vessels have the option 
of repairing existing equipment or possibly installing similar 
equipment. These owners and operators may incur expected repair and 
replacement costs related to their existing equipment, but they will 
not incur additional mandatory costs associated with the provisions and 
requirements of this rule. If any owner or operator of an existing 
vessel of the current fleet chooses to upgrade, it is a voluntary 
upgrade.

B. Benefits

    This rule will eliminate confusion caused by outdated and 
conflicting rules on the safety of marine engineering for owners, 
operators, and manufacturers of vessels. These changes will update 
outdated rules to meet current national and international standards. In 
addition, this rule will give the maritime industry clear instructions 
and descriptions of how to comply with various rules.

[[Page 65159]]

C. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we 
considered whether this rule will have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.
    Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that 
this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities because it is not retroactive and 
because it imposes no mandatory costs on owners or operators of 
vessels.

D. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

E. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism. This rule will revise outdated standards on safety of 
marine equipment with international and national standards created and 
approved in part by State and local governments that participate in 
organizations that develop national standards for marine operation and 
safety.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory 
actions not specifically required by law. In particular, the Act 
addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, 
or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of 
$100,000,000 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result 
in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

H. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and will not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, 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.

K. Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

L. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise be impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies.
    This rule uses voluntary consensus standards from the following 
organizations: American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) International, 
American National Standards Institute (ANSI), American Petroleum 
Institute (API), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 
American Gas Association, ASTM International, International 
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), Institute of Electrical and 
Electronic Engineers (IEEE), International Maritime Organization (IMO), 
Instrument Society of America (ISA), International Organization for 
Standardization (ISO), Manufacturers Standardization Society of the 
Valve and Fitting Industry, Inc. (MSS), Naval Sea Systems Command 
(NAVSEA), National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), 
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Naval Publications and 
Forms Center (NPFC), Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and 
Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc. (UL). The sections that reference 
these consensus standards and the locations where these standards are 
available are listed in 46 CFR 52.01-1, 53.01-1, 54.01-1, 56.01-2, 
58.03-1, 59.01-2, 62.05-1, 63.05-1, 76.01-2, 92.01-2, 110.10-1, 
162.017-1, 170.015, and 175.600.

M. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 5100.1 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded 
under the Instruction that there are no factors in this case that would 
limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the 
Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under 
figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(d) of the Instruction, from further 
environmental documentation. This rule will replace outdated safety 
standards for marine equipment with current national and international 
standards, and therefore will not have any impact on the environment. 
An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
