DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to require contractors to apply Government-assigned serial numbers in human-readable format on major end items when required by law, regulation, or military operational necessity. DATES: Effective Date: September 27, 2010. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Mary Overstreet, 703–602–0311. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. 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
