Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking (202) 267–9677, to request a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 CFR), Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for SIAPs operations at Robertson Field Airport, Langdon, ND. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9T, signed August 27, 2009 and effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore, (1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would establish controlled airspace at Robertson Field Airport, Langdon, ND.

ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is proposing to eliminate the use of most paper documents that it sends to parties having business before the agency. The documents that would be affected by this proposed rule are: Export and reexport licenses, notices of denial of license applications, notices of VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:55 Dec 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 return of a license application without action, classification results, License Exception AGR notification results and encryption review request results. This proposed rule would modify the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement those changes. This proposed rule also would make changes to the recordkeeping requirements associated with the elimination of paper documents. BIS is proposing to make these changes to reduce mailing costs and to free up staff time currently devoted to mailing these documents for use in other tasks. DATES: Comments must be received by BIS no later than February 2, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Andrukonis, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce at 202 482 6393 or e-mail tandrukoi@bis.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Bureau of Industry and Security administers an export licensing program pursuant to the Export Administration Regulations. As part of this program, BIS issues various documents in response to applications and notifications submitted to BIS by the public. Those documents include export licenses, reexport licenses, notice that an export or reexport license applications has been denied, notice that an export or reexport license application is being returned to the applicant without action, responses to License Exception AGR notifications, and notice of the results of a classification request. Collectively, these documents are referred to in this preamble as license related documents. Currently, BIS issues the license related documents in two ways: Electronically in BIS’s Simplified Network Application Processing Redesign system (SNAP–R) and on paper. Most license related documents are issued in both electronic and paper form. However, a few documents are issued only on paper. BIS now proposes to eliminate the paper version of the license related documents that it currently issues both electronically in SNAP–R and on paper. The EAR require that export license applications, reexport license applications and License Exception AGR notifications, encryption review requests and classification requests be submitted to BIS electronically using SNAP–R unless BIS authorizes a paper submission. The license related documents associated with a SNAP–R submission are issued on line in SNAP– PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 63685 R where the submitter may view, save or print a copy. In addition, a paper version of each of those documents is mailed to the party. BIS does not issue electronic license related documents in situations in which BIS authorized a paper submission and in situations in which BIS must reissue the license related documents because it reopened a matter previously considered to be completed. BIS is not proposing to stop issuing paper license related documents in these two situations in which it currently issues only paper documents. BIS also is not proposing to change its practices regarding issuance of Special Comprehensive Licenses or Special Iraq Reconstruction Licenses. BIS is proposing to discontinue issuing paper documents in the situations where it currently issues both paper and electronic versions of the license related documents. BIS is also proposing to make certain changes to the recordkeeping requirements in connection with this change. Specific Proposed Changes Clarification that Electronic Notification in SNAP–R is Considered, for Purposes of the EAR, Written Notification of the Results of a License Exception AGR Request This proposed rule would revise § 740.18(c)(5) to state that BIS will issue confirmation in SNAP–R or by other written notification of the decision that no agency has objected to a party’s proposed use of License Exception AGR. Currently, that section merely states that BIS will issue written confirmation. Removal of Requirement to Maintain a Log of Electronic Submissions This proposed rule would remove the requirement currently found in § 748.7(c) that companies maintain a log of electronic submissions. The requirement was established in connection with BIS’ initial electronic application process, which was instituted in the 1980s. At that time, electronic submissions were facilitated by a number of private sector vendors and the logs may have been necessary for auditing purposes. However, currently, the information required to be kept in the log duplicates information that parties are required to include in their SNAP–R submissions or that is automatically recorded by SNAP–R. BIS is proposing to discontinue the log keeping requirement because it is redundant of information available to BIS in SNAP–R. The proposed rule would accomplish this change by removing paragraph (c) of § 748.7 and E:\FR\FM\04DEP1.SGM 04DEP1

The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR), Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface for SIAPs operations at Robertson Field 
Airport, Langdon, ND. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9T, signed August 27, 2009 and effective September 15, 2009, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in 
the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
It, therefore, (1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106 describes 
the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation 
Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's authority. 
This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it would establish controlled airspace at Robertson Field Airport, 
Langdon, ND.
