The agency is taking this action because these regulations are obsolete after November 8, 2010. The Act permitted consumers to request coupons from NTIA through July 31, 2009. The final coupons were issued on August 12, 2009, and the last issued coupon expired on November 9, 2009. NTIA has fulfilled its statutory mandate to administer the Coupon Program, and is removing the regulations as they are unnecessary. If these regulations are not removed, it may suggest that the program is still active and may cause confusion regarding the status of the program. Executive Order 12866 This rule has been determined to be not significant under Executive Order 12866. This rule does not contain policies with federalism implications as that term is defined in EO 13132. Regulatory Flexibility Act As prior notice and an opportunity for public comment are not required under 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act are inapplicable. Thus, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required and none has been prepared. Paperwork Reduction Act This action contains no information collection requirements. Therefore, clearance by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 is not required.

Background Contractors are required to apply Government-assigned serial numbers, such as tail numbers/hull numbers and equipment registration numbers, in human-readable format on major end items when required by law, regulation, or military operational necessity. This final rule establishes a standard DoD method of specifying Governmentassigned serial numbers contractually and requires the contractor to associate these serial numbers with the Unique Item Identifier (UII) assigned by the contractor and to register them in the DoD Item Unique Identification (IUID) Registry along with the UII. The rule also requires agreement between the Government and contractor prior to use of the serial numbers in constructing the end item UII. DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22727). The comment period closed on June 29, 2010, and no comments were received. This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993. This is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD does not expect this final rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. DoD has prepared a final regulatory flexibility analysis consistent with 5 U.S.C. 604. A copy of the analysis may be obtained from the point of contact specified herein. The analysis is summarized as follows: DoD requires that the use of Government-assigned serial numbers be limited to satisfy requirements of law or regulation or to facilitate the identification of major end items consistent with military operational requirements, e.g., aircraft tail numbers or ship hull numbers in military E:\FR\FM\27SER1.SGM 27SER1
