ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda. SUMMARY: The Department of Defense (DoD) is publishing this semiannual agenda of regulatory documents, including those that are procurementrelated, for public information and comments under Executive Order 12866 ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review.’’ This agenda incorporates the objective and criteria, when applicable, of the regulatory reform program under the Executive order and other regulatory guidance. It contains DoD issuances initiated by DoD components that may have economic and environmental impact on State, local, or tribal interests under the criteria of Executive Order 12866. Although most DoD issuances listed in the agenda are of negligible public impact, their nature may be of public interest and, therefore, are published to provide notice of rulemaking and an opportunity for public participation in the internal DoD rulemaking process. This agenda updates the report published on December 7, 2009, and includes regulations expected to be issued and under review over the next 12 months. The next agenda and regulatory plan are scheduled to be published in the fall of 2010. In addition to this agenda, DoD components also publish rulemaking notices pertaining to their specific statutory administration requirements as required. Starting with the fall 2007 edition, the Internet became the basic means for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda will be available online at www.reginfo.gov, in a format that offers users the ability to obtain information from the Agenda database.

Included also is the regulatory status report from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, whose civil works functions fall under the reporting requirements of Executive Order 12866 and involve water resource projects and regulation of activities in waters of the United States. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD issuances range from DoD directives (reflecting departmental policy) to implementing instructions and regulations (largely internal and used to implement directives). The OSD agenda section contains the primary directives under which DoD components promulgate their implementing regulations.

Therefore, DoD components will identify those rules which come under the criteria of the: a. Regulatory Flexibility Act; b. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; c. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. Those DoD issuances, which are directly applicable under these statutes, will be identified in the agenda and their action status indicated. Generally, the regulatory status reports in this agenda will contain five sections: (1) Prerule stage; (2) proposed rule stage; (3) final rule stage; (4) completed actions; and (5) long-term actions. Where certain regulatory actions indicate that small entities are affected, the effect on these entities may not necessarily have significant economic impact on a substantial number of these entities as defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601(6)). Although not a regulatory agency, DoD will continue to participate in regulatory initiatives designed to reduce economic costs and unnecessary burdens upon the public. Comments and recommendations are invited on the rules reported and should be addressed to the DoD component representatives identified in the regulatory status reports. Although sensitive to the needs of the public, as well as regulatory reform, DoD reserves the right to exercise the exemptions and flexibility permitted in its rulemaking process in order to proceed with its overall defense-oriented mission. The publishing of this agenda does not waive the applicability of the military affairs exemption in section 553 of title 5 U.S.C. and section 3 of Executive Order 12866. Dated: March 4, 2010.

Improving Government Regulations; Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory 
and Deregulatory Actions

AGENCY: Department of Defense (DoD).

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Department of Defense (DoD) is publishing this semiannual 
agenda of regulatory documents, including those that are procurement-
related, for public information and comments under Executive Order 
12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review.'' This agenda incorporates the 
objective and criteria, when applicable, of the regulatory reform 
program under the Executive order and other regulatory guidance. It 
contains DoD issuances initiated by DoD components that may have 
economic and environmental impact on State, local, or tribal interests 
under the criteria of Executive Order 12866. Although most DoD 
issuances listed in the agenda are of negligible public impact, their 
nature may be of public interest and, therefore, are published to 
provide notice of rulemaking and an opportunity for public 
participation in the internal DoD rulemaking process.

    This agenda updates the report published on December 7, 2009, 
and includes regulations expected to be issued and under review 
over the next 12 months. The next agenda and regulatory plan are 
scheduled to be published in the fall of 2010. In addition to this 
agenda, DoD components also publish rulemaking notices pertaining 
to their specific statutory administration requirements as 
required.

    Starting with the fall 2007 edition, the Internet became the 
basic means for disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete 
Unified Agenda will be available online at www.reginfo.gov, in a 
format that offers users the ability to obtain information from the 
Agenda database.

    Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the 
regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602), the Department of Defense's printed 
agenda entries include only:

    (1) Rules that are in the Agency's regulatory flexibility 
agenda, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, because 
they are likely to have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities; and

    (2) Any rules that the Agency has identified for periodic 
review under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

    Printing of these entries is limited to fields that contain 
information required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act's agenda 
requirements. Additional information on these entries is in the 
Unified Agenda available online.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This edition of the Unified Agenda of 
Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions is composed of the 
regulatory status reports, including procurement-related regulatory 
status reports, from the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and 
the Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Included also is the 
regulatory status report from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, whose 
civil works functions fall under the reporting requirements of 
Executive Order 12866 and involve water resource projects and 
regulation of activities in waters of the United States.

    DoD issuances range from DoD directives (reflecting 
departmental policy) to implementing instructions and regulations 
(largely internal and used to implement directives). The OSD agenda 
section contains the primary directives under which DoD components 
promulgate their implementing regulations.

[[Page 21775]]

    In addition, this agenda, although published under the 
reporting requirements of Executive Order 12866, continues to be 
the DoD single-source reporting vehicle, which identifies issuances 
that are currently applicable under the various regulatory reform 
programs in progress. Therefore, DoD components will identify those 
rules which come under the criteria of the:

    a. Regulatory Flexibility Act;

    b. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995;

    c. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

    Those DoD issuances, which are directly applicable under these 
statutes, will be identified in the agenda and their action status 
indicated. Generally, the regulatory status reports in this agenda 
will contain five sections: (1) Prerule stage; (2) proposed rule 
stage; (3) final rule stage; (4) completed actions; and (5) long-
term actions. Where certain regulatory actions indicate that small 
entities are affected, the effect on these entities may not 
necessarily have significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of these entities as defined in the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act (5 U.S.C. 601(6)).

    Although not a regulatory agency, DoD will continue to 
participate in regulatory initiatives designed to reduce economic 
costs and unnecessary burdens upon the public. Comments and 
recommendations are invited on the rules reported and should be 
addressed to the DoD component representatives identified in the 
regulatory status reports. Although sensitive to the needs of the 
public, as well as regulatory reform, DoD reserves the right to 
exercise the exemptions and flexibility permitted in its rulemaking 
process in order to proceed with its overall defense-oriented 
mission. The publishing of this agenda does not waive the 
applicability of the military affairs exemption in section 553 of 
title 5 U.S.C. and section 3 of Executive Order 12866.

116.  RESTRICTION ON BALL AND ROLLER BEARINGS

Legal Authority: 41 USC 421

Abstract: Revises the domestic source restriction on acquisition of 
ball and roller bearings. The current DFARS restriction on ball and 
roller bearings requires that the bearings and the main bearing 
components be manufactured in the U.S. or Canada. This requirement was 
based on the restriction at 10 U.S.C. 2534(a)(5), which expired on 
October 1, 2005. The proposed revision interprets the annual defense 
appropriations act domestic source restriction on acquisition of ball 
and roller bearings in a manner similar to the domestic source 
restriction of the Buy American Act.
