Description of Corrections to 27 CFR Chapter I DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Part 1 Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau The definition of wine in § 1.10 is amended to clarify that the last clause in current paragraph (b) of the definition, ‘‘in each instance, only if containing not less than 7 percent and not more than 24 percent of alcohol by volume, and if for non-industrial use,’’ applies to both clauses in the definition of wine: ‘‘(1) Wine as defined in section 610 and section 617 of the Revenue Act of 1918 * * *’’ and ‘‘(2) Other alcoholic beverages not so defined, but made in the manner of wine * * *.’’ This revision is made to improve the clarity and readability of the definition; this revision does not change the definition as interpreted by TTB or its predecessor agencies. Paragraphs (a) and (b) of this definition also are redesignated as paragraphs (1) and (2) to conform to current CFR designation practices. 27 CFR Parts 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 13, 16, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 30, 40, 41, 44, 45, 53, 70, and 71 [Docket No. TTB–2011–0003; T.D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 SUMMARY: Background In this final rule, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) makes technical corrections to its regulations, which are contained in 27 CFR chapter I. The amendments contained in this document correct grammatical, spelling and typographical errors, correct or update form numbers, correct or update cross-references to the United States Code and TTB regulations, update regulations to reflect VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:25 Jan 31, 2011 Jkt 223001 Part 4 The definition of wine in § 4.10 is revised to clarify the source of the statutory definition of wine that it quotes, to update the reference to the applicable Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC) sections, and to correct a typographical error in current paragraph (b). As in § 1.10, the definition of wine also is amended to clarify that the last clause in current paragraph (b) applies to both clauses of the definition of wine, and paragraphs (a) and (b) of the definition are redesignated as paragraphs (1) and (2) to conform to current CFR designation practices. These revisions are made to improve the clarity and readability of the definition; these revisions do not change the definition as interpreted by TTB or its predecessor agencies. In addition, outdated cross-references are amended in §§ 4.5, 4.23, 4.28, 4.32, 4.37, 4.46, 4.70, and 4.71. Additionally, §§ 4.25, 4.61, and 4.65 are amended to correct typographical errors. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 5473 Part 5 When the original final rule establishing § 5.61 was published, the placeholder for the insertion of the rule’s effective date was inadvertently left in place. Our amendment to this section removes the placeholder and inserts the correct effective date of September 7, 1984 (see T.D. ATF–180, 49 FR 31667, August 8, 1984). Additionally, § 5.22 is amended to correct a typographical error. Part 7 Section 7.4 is amended to correct a cross-reference to the Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program regulations in 7 CFR part 205. Section 7.24 is amended to correct typographical errors in two Germanlanguage geographical names. Part 9 Section 9.43 is amended to correct a typographical error in a State highway route number used in the boundary instructions for the Rocky Knob viticultural area in Virginia, and § 9.58 is amended to correct a misspelling. Part 13 The definition of wine in § 13.11 is amended to clarify the source of the statutory definition of wine that it quotes, to update the reference to the applicable IRC sections, and to word and structure the definition in the same manner as done in § 4.10, as described above. In addition, paragraphs (a) and (b) of the definition are redesignated as paragraphs (1) and (2) to conform to current CFR designation practices. These revisions are made to improve the clarity and readability of the definition; these revisions do not change the definition as interpreted by TTB or its predecessor agencies. In section 13.23, the reference to form ATF F 5190.1, Correction Sheet, is removed since that form is no longer in use. The reference to the form is replaced with a more general reference to ‘‘a certificate of label approval rejection document’’ to reflect TTB’s current certificate of label approval process. Part 16 Section 16.22 is amended to correct one typographical error. Part 17 In 1994, section 136(a) of Public Law 103–45 added perfume to the kinds of products for which nonbeverage drawback is available, and this change was incorporated into part 17 by T.D. ATF–379 (61 FR 31412, June 20, 1996). Section 17.137 is amended to include E:\FR\FM\01FER1.SGM 01FER1 5474 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 21 / Tuesday, February 1, 2011 / Rules and Regulations perfume since the necessary change to that section was inadvertently omitted from T.D. ATF–379. In addition, a typographical error is corrected in § 17.141. Part 18 In § 18.34, a typographical error is corrected. Part 20 Section 484F of Public Law 101–382 (August 20, 1990) struck out the word ‘‘domestic’’ from section 3(c) of the Foreign Trade Zones Act (see 19 U.S.C. 81c(c)). Prior to this amendment in the law, the Foreign Trade Zones Act allowed only domestic denatured spirits to be used in the manufacture of articles in a foreign trade zone. The law was amended in order to allow the manufacture in a zone of articles from denatured distilled spirits, whether foreign or domestic, that have been withdrawn free of tax from a distilled spirits plant (within the meaning of section 5002(a)(1) of the IRC). Sections 20.2 and 20.161 are amended to reflect this statutory change to the Foreign Trade Zones Act. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 Part 22 Section 22.142 is amended to correct a typographical error. Part 24 Sections 24.113, 24.272, 24.314, and 24.323 are amended to correct typographical errors. The authority citation for § 24.225 is revised to correct the omission of 26 U.S.C. 5214, and § 24.309 is amended to revise an incorrect cross-reference. Section 24.168(c) is amended so that the regulation for the marking of barrels, puncheons, and similar bulk containers accounts for such containers with a capacity of exactly 100 gallons. The regulation, as currently written, only applies to such containers of less than 100 gallons or more than 100 gallons. Prior to the recodification of part 240 as part 24, 27 CFR 240.165 required a serial number on containers of 60 gallons capacity or more, but not on those of less than 60 gallons. In 1986, ATF proposed in Notice No. 584 (51 FR 8098) to revise and recodify the wine regulations, stating in the notice’s preamble that the rules concerning winery construction and equipment were ‘‘significantly reduced’’ to allow ‘‘greater flexibility in establishing and operating wine premises.’’ No comments were received on then-proposed § 24.168, and the omission of a reference to containers of exactly 100 gallon capacity was not corrected before the proposal was adopted as a final rule in VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:25 Jan 31, 2011 Jkt 223001 T.D. ATF–299, 55 FR 24974 (June 19, 1990). The amendment herein establishes that containers of 100 gallons capacity will be treated in the same manner as containers of less than 100 gallons capacity. Part 25 Sections 25.11, 25.62, 25.221, 25.223, 25.225, 25.292, and 25.294 are amended to correct various typographical errors. Part 26 In § 26.31, which sets forth rules for determining how rum excise tax ‘‘coverover’’ payments will be split between Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands under 26 U.S.C. 7652(e), TTB is revising paragraph (a) which sets forth the applicable formula. The revision is intended to improve the readability of the text and to clarify how the formula has been and will be applied, consistent with the discussions and examples in the original 1985 notice of proposed rulemaking (Notice No. 558, 50 FR 6203) and 1986 final rule (T.D. ATF– 233, 51 FR 28071, as corrected at 52 FR 2222). Sections 26.50 and 26.220 are amended to revise incorrect crossreferences. Typographical errors are corrected in §§ 26.112a, 26.126, and 26.128. Part 28 Section 28.2 is amended to update the information on how the public may obtain TTB forms. Section 28.3 is amended to reflect the current title of 27 CFR part 1, and to add part 27 to the list of related regulations. Additionally, the heading and text of § 28.122 are amended to delete a reference to an ATF form and refer to the appropriate TTB form, as well as to correct a minor grammatical error. Part 30 Section 30.32 is amended to revise an incorrect cross-reference. Part 40 Sections 40.22, 40.42, 40.91, 40.165a, 40.231, and 40.357 are amended to correct various typographical errors. Sections 40.62, 40.66, 40.75, 40.92, 40.93, 40.104, 40.112, 40.114, 40.137, 40.281, 40.282, 40.283, 40.284, 20.286, 40.287, 40.311, 40.313, 40.356, 40.393, 40.407, 40.471, 40.472, 40.473, 40.474, and 40.478 are amended to update outdated ATF form numbers to current TTB form numbers. These form number revisions do not change any current TTB reporting or recordkeeping requirement. Sections 40.67 and 40.111 are amended to update form numbers and PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 to eliminate outdated references to the former ATF’s regional structure which TTB does not use. Section 40.68 is also amended to update a form number and an outdated cross-reference. Section 40.201 is amended to remove outdated references to the former ATF’s regional structure, and § 40.113 is removed in its entirety for the same reason. In addition to correcting a form number in § 40.392, a cross-reference regarding bonds for manufacturers of cigarette papers and tubes is corrected due to an inadvertent error made in the 1996 redesignation of Part 285, Manufacture of Cigarette Papers and Tubes, as subpart K of Part 270, Manufacture of Tobacco Products (see T.D. ATF–384, 61 FR 54084, 10/17/1996). As part of the redesignation, subpart G of part 285 (§§ 285.401 through 285.410) became §§ 270.401 through 270.410 within subpart K of part 270. However, a separate and unrelated subpart G already existed within part 270 at the time of the redesignation. Therefore, with the redesignation of § 285.42 as § 270.392, the reference to ‘‘subpart G of this part’’ in the new § 270.392 should have been revised to read ‘‘§§ 270.401 through 270.410’’ in order to conform the cross-reference to the redesignated regulations. When part 270 was redesignated as part 40 in 2001 (see T.D. ATF–460, 66 FR 39091, 7/27/2001), § 270.392 became § 40.392 and the incorrect reference to subpart G was retained. This document corrects the reference to ‘‘subpart G of this part’’ in § 40.392 to read ‘‘§§ 40.401 through §§ 40.410.’’ Part 41 Section 41.115a is amended to correct a typographical error. Section 41.196 is amended to update the reference to a TTB form number. Part 44 Section 44.2 is amended to remove a typographical error. Part 45 Section 45.11 currently contains a definition of ‘‘District directorAdministrator.’’ While ‘‘District directorAdministrator’’ contains a typographical error and should read ‘‘District director,’’ the definition is removed entirely since the position of District director of internal revenue is no longer referred to in this part. Part 53 Sections 53.96(b)(1) and (b)(2) are amended to add a cross-reference to the Internal Revenue Code, and a E:\FR\FM\01FER1.SGM 01FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 21 / Tuesday, February 1, 2011 / Rules and Regulations wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 typographical error is corrected in § 53.151(a)(2). Part 70 Part 70, which contains procedural and administrative regulations, is amended to reflect TTB’s current authorities, structure, and administrative practices, correct several typographical errors, and update various cross-references. When section 1111 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–296) abolished the former Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) and created two new agencies, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, TTB updated its regulations in 27 CFR chapter I to reflect this division (see T.D. TTB–44, 71 FR 16918, April 14, 2006). However, several regulations in part 70 that required updating were not included in those amendments. Therefore, this document makes the following amendments to reflect current TTB authorities, organization, practices, and structure: • In §§ 70.1, 70.21, 70.181, 70.306, and 70.413, outdated references to the former ATF’s regional structure are eliminated. • In § 70.11, the definition of Provisions of 26 U.S.C. enforced and administered by the Bureau is amended to reflect current TTB authorities. Section 70.11 is also amended to include a definition of ‘‘IRC.’’ • In §§ 70.441, 70.442, 70.443, 70.444, 70.445, and 70.448, references to outdated 27 CFR part numbers formerly used by ATF are updated to reflect the new 27 CFR chapter II part numbers used by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. • Section 70.471 is amended for clarity and to eliminate references to matters under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and to provide contact information at that agency for requests for information regarding its jurisdiction. In addition, part 70 is amended to clarify existing TTB authorities and practices or to correct grammatical or typographical errors. Section 70.22(a) is revised to clarify TTB’s existing authority, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 7602(b), regarding the examination of books and witnesses for the purpose of inquiring into any offense connected with the administration or enforcement of the internal revenue laws administered by TTB. Sections 70.22(b), 70.148, 70.486, and 70.803 are amended to correct typographical errors, and § 70.701(d) is amended to correct two grammatical VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:25 Jan 31, 2011 Jkt 223001 5475 errors. In addition, outdated references to the IRC of 1954 and obsolete 27 CFR part numbers are updated or removed in §§ 70.411 and 70.431. Section 702 of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111–3, 123 Stat. 8) amended sections 5712, 5713, 5721, 5722, 5723, and 5741 of the IRC to extend permit, inventory, reporting, packaging, labeling, marking, noticing, and recordkeeping requirements to manufacturers and importers of processed tobacco even though such processed tobacco is not subject to excise tax under the IRC. As a result, TTB made amendments in 2009 to its tobacco regulations to reflect this new authority (see T.D. TTB–78, 74 FR 29401, 6/22/2009, for a full discussion of this issue). Therefore, the discussion of the 27 CFR parts 40 and 41 tobacco regulations in § 70.431(b) is amended to include references to processed tobacco. In § 70.802, paragraph (g) regarding the handling of comments received in response to a notice of proposed rulemaking is amended to reflect TTB’s current administrative practices. The revised text explains that comments received will be posted to the appropriate docket on the Regulations.gov Web site (https:// www.regulations.gov), and that the comments will be available for inperson inspection in the TTB public reading room. The revised text also explains how to request copies of comments and, as stated in the current regulation, that the fees outlined in 31 CFR 1.7 apply to such requests. any recordkeeping provision, TTB has determined in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) that it is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest to follow prior public notice and comment procedures and, therefore, 5 U.S.C. 553(b) does not apply. Part 71 Section 71.27 is amended to add a missing end parenthesis, and § 71.108(a) is amended to correct a form number reference. Section 71.110 is obsolete and is being removed since TTB does not use the former ATF’s regional structure. Part 9 Regulatory Flexibility Act Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. Executive Order 12866 It has been determined that this final rule is not a significant regulatory action as defined in E.O. 12866. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not necessary. Prior Notice and Comment Procedures Because this final rule merely makes technical corrections to existing regulations to update or clarify the application of those provisions and does not change the Bureau’s interpretation of any regulation or the requirements of PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Drafting Information Michael D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In this final rule, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau 
(TTB) makes technical corrections to its regulations, which are 
contained in 27 CFR chapter I. The amendments contained in this 
document correct grammatical, spelling and typographical errors, 
correct or update form numbers, correct or update cross-references to 
the United States Code and TTB regulations, update regulations to

references to ATF or TTB publications, or make other non-substantive 
corrections and clarifications to the TTB regulations. These technical 
amendments do not change TTB's interpretation of any regulation or the 
requirements of any TTB recordkeeping provision.

Description of Corrections to 27 CFR Chapter I

Part 1

    The definition of wine in Sec.  1.10 is amended to clarify that the 
last clause in current paragraph (b) of the definition, ``in each 
instance, only if containing not less than 7 percent and not more than 
24 percent of alcohol by volume, and if for non-industrial use,'' 
applies to both clauses in the definition of wine: ``(1) Wine as 
defined in section 610 and section 617 of the Revenue Act of 1918 * * 
*'' and ``(2) Other alcoholic beverages not so defined, but made in the 
manner of wine * * *.'' This revision is made to improve the clarity 
and readability of the definition; this revision does not change the 
definition as interpreted by TTB or its predecessor agencies. 
Paragraphs (a) and (b) of this definition also are redesignated as 
paragraphs (1) and (2) to conform to current CFR designation practices.

Part 4

    The definition of wine in Sec.  4.10 is revised to clarify the 
source of the statutory definition of wine that it quotes, to update 
the reference to the applicable Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC) 
sections, and to correct a typographical error in current paragraph 
(b). As in Sec.  1.10, the definition of wine also is amended to 
clarify that the last clause in current paragraph (b) applies to both 
clauses of the definition of wine, and paragraphs (a) and (b) of the 
definition are redesignated as paragraphs (1) and (2) to conform to 
current CFR designation practices. These revisions are made to improve 
the clarity and readability of the definition; these revisions do not 
change the definition as interpreted by TTB or its predecessor 
agencies.
    In addition, outdated cross-references are amended in Sec. Sec.  
4.5, 4.23, 4.28, 4.32, 4.37, 4.46, 4.70, and 4.71. Additionally, 
Sec. Sec.  4.25, 4.61, and 4.65 are amended to correct typographical 
errors.

Part 5

    When the original final rule establishing Sec.  5.61 was published, 
the placeholder for the insertion of the rule's effective date was 
inadvertently left in place. Our amendment to this section removes the 
placeholder and inserts the correct effective date of September 7, 1984 
(see T.D. ATF-180, 49 FR 31667, August 8, 1984). Additionally, Sec.  
5.22 is amended to correct a typographical error.

Part 7

    Section 7.4 is amended to correct a cross-reference to the 
Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program regulations in 7 
CFR part 205. Section 7.24 is amended to correct typographical errors 
in two German-language geographical names.

Part 9

    Section 9.43 is amended to correct a typographical error in a State 
highway route number used in the boundary instructions for the Rocky 
Knob viticultural area in Virginia, and Sec.  9.58 is amended to 
correct a misspelling.

Part 13

    The definition of wine in Sec.  13.11 is amended to clarify the 
source of the statutory definition of wine that it quotes, to update 
the reference to the applicable IRC sections, and to word and structure 
the definition in the same manner as done in Sec.  4.10, as described 
above. In addition, paragraphs (a) and (b) of the definition are 
redesignated as paragraphs (1) and (2) to conform to current CFR 
designation practices. These revisions are made to improve the clarity 
and readability of the definition; these revisions do not change the 
definition as interpreted by TTB or its predecessor agencies.
    In section 13.23, the reference to form ATF F 5190.1, Correction 
Sheet, is removed since that form is no longer in use. The reference to 
the form is replaced with a more general reference to ``a certificate 
of label approval rejection document'' to reflect TTB's current 
certificate of label approval process.

Part 16

    Section 16.22 is amended to correct one typographical error.

Part 17

    In 1994, section 136(a) of Public Law 103-45 added perfume to the 
kinds of products for which nonbeverage drawback is available, and this 
change was incorporated into part 17 by T.D. ATF-379 (61 FR 31412, June 
20, 1996). Section 17.137 is amended to include

[[Page 5474]]

perfume since the necessary change to that section was inadvertently 
omitted from T.D. ATF-379. In addition, a typographical error is 
corrected in Sec.  17.141.

Part 18

    In Sec.  18.34, a typographical error is corrected.

Part 20

    Section 484F of Public Law 101-382 (August 20, 1990) struck out the 
word ``domestic'' from section 3(c) of the Foreign Trade Zones Act (see 
19 U.S.C. 81c(c)). Prior to this amendment in the law, the Foreign 
Trade Zones Act allowed only domestic denatured spirits to be used in 
the manufacture of articles in a foreign trade zone. The law was 
amended in order to allow the manufacture in a zone of articles from 
denatured distilled spirits, whether foreign or domestic, that have 
been withdrawn free of tax from a distilled spirits plant (within the 
meaning of section 5002(a)(1) of the IRC). Sections 20.2 and 20.161 are 
amended to reflect this statutory change to the Foreign Trade Zones 
Act.

Part 22

    Section 22.142 is amended to correct a typographical error.

Part 24

    Sections 24.113, 24.272, 24.314, and 24.323 are amended to correct 
typographical errors. The authority citation for Sec.  24.225 is 
revised to correct the omission of 26 U.S.C. 5214, and Sec.  24.309 is 
amended to revise an incorrect cross-reference.
    Section 24.168(c) is amended so that the regulation for the marking 
of barrels, puncheons, and similar bulk containers accounts for such 
containers with a capacity of exactly 100 gallons. The regulation, as 
currently written, only applies to such containers of less than 100 
gallons or more than 100 gallons. Prior to the recodification of part 
240 as part 24, 27 CFR 240.165 required a serial number on containers 
of 60 gallons capacity or more, but not on those of less than 60 
gallons. In 1986, ATF proposed in Notice No. 584 (51 FR 8098) to revise 
and recodify the wine regulations, stating in the notice's preamble 
that the rules concerning winery construction and equipment were 
``significantly reduced'' to allow ``greater flexibility in 
establishing and operating wine premises.'' No comments were received 
on then-proposed Sec.  24.168, and the omission of a reference to 
containers of exactly 100 gallon capacity was not corrected before the 
proposal was adopted as a final rule in T.D. ATF-299, 55 FR 24974 (June 
19, 1990). The amendment herein establishes that containers of 100 
gallons capacity will be treated in the same manner as containers of 
less than 100 gallons capacity.

Part 25

    Sections 25.11, 25.62, 25.221, 25.223, 25.225, 25.292, and 25.294 
are amended to correct various typographical errors.

Part 26

    In Sec.  26.31, which sets forth rules for determining how rum 
excise tax ``cover-over'' payments will be split between Puerto Rico 
and the U.S. Virgin Islands under 26 U.S.C. 7652(e), TTB is revising 
paragraph (a) which sets forth the applicable formula. The revision is 
intended to improve the readability of the text and to clarify how the 
formula has been and will be applied, consistent with the discussions 
and examples in the original 1985 notice of proposed rulemaking (Notice 
No. 558, 50 FR 6203) and 1986 final rule (T.D. ATF-233, 51 FR 28071, as 
corrected at 52 FR 2222).
    Sections 26.50 and 26.220 are amended to revise incorrect cross-
references. Typographical errors are corrected in Sec. Sec.  26.112a, 
26.126, and 26.128.

Part 28

    Section 28.2 is amended to update the information on how the public 
may obtain TTB forms. Section 28.3 is amended to reflect the current 
title of 27 CFR part 1, and to add part 27 to the list of related 
regulations. Additionally, the heading and text of Sec.  28.122 are 
amended to delete a reference to an ATF form and refer to the 
appropriate TTB form, as well as to correct a minor grammatical error.

Part 30

    Section 30.32 is amended to revise an incorrect cross-reference.

Part 40

    Sections 40.22, 40.42, 40.91, 40.165a, 40.231, and 40.357 are 
amended to correct various typographical errors. Sections 40.62, 40.66, 
40.75, 40.92, 40.93, 40.104, 40.112, 40.114, 40.137, 40.281, 40.282, 
40.283, 40.284, 20.286, 40.287, 40.311, 40.313, 40.356, 40.393, 40.407, 
40.471, 40.472, 40.473, 40.474, and 40.478 are amended to update 
outdated ATF form numbers to current TTB form numbers. These form 
number revisions do not change any current TTB reporting or 
recordkeeping requirement.
    Sections 40.67 and 40.111 are amended to update form numbers and to 
eliminate outdated references to the former ATF's regional structure 
which TTB does not use. Section 40.68 is also amended to update a form 
number and an outdated cross-reference. Section 40.201 is amended to 
remove outdated references to the former ATF's regional structure, and 
Sec.  40.113 is removed in its entirety for the same reason.
    In addition to correcting a form number in Sec.  40.392, a cross-
reference regarding bonds for manufacturers of cigarette papers and 
tubes is corrected due to an inadvertent error made in the 1996 
redesignation of Part 285, Manufacture of Cigarette Papers and Tubes, 
as subpart K of Part 270, Manufacture of Tobacco Products (see T.D. 
ATF-384, 61 FR 54084, 10/17/1996). As part of the redesignation, 
subpart G of part 285 (Sec. Sec.  285.401 through 285.410) became 
Sec. Sec.  270.401 through 270.410 within subpart K of part 270. 
However, a separate and unrelated subpart G already existed within part 
270 at the time of the redesignation. Therefore, with the redesignation 
of Sec.  285.42 as Sec.  270.392, the reference to ``subpart G of this 
part'' in the new Sec.  270.392 should have been revised to read 
``Sec. Sec.  270.401 through 270.410'' in order to conform the cross-
reference to the redesignated regulations. When part 270 was 
redesignated as part 40 in 2001 (see T.D. ATF-460, 66 FR 39091, 7/27/
2001), Sec.  270.392 became Sec.  40.392 and the incorrect reference to 
subpart G was retained. This document corrects the reference to 
``subpart G of this part'' in Sec.  40.392 to read ``Sec. Sec.  40.401 
through Sec. Sec.  40.410.''

Part 41

    Section 41.115a is amended to correct a typographical error. 
Section 41.196 is amended to update the reference to a TTB form number.

Part 44

    Section 44.2 is amended to remove a typographical error.

Part 45

    Section 45.11 currently contains a definition of ``District 
directorAdministrator.'' While ``District directorAdministrator'' 
contains a typographical error and should read ``District director,'' 
the definition is removed entirely since the position of District 
director of internal revenue is no longer referred to in this part.

Part 53

    Sections 53.96(b)(1) and (b)(2) are amended to add a cross-
reference to the Internal Revenue Code, and a

[[Page 5475]]

typographical error is corrected in Sec.  53.151(a)(2).

Part 70

    Part 70, which contains procedural and administrative regulations, 
is amended to reflect TTB's current authorities, structure, and 
administrative practices, correct several typographical errors, and 
update various cross-references.
    When section 1111 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 
107-296) abolished the former Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms 
(ATF) and created two new agencies, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and 
Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and 
Explosives, TTB updated its regulations in 27 CFR chapter I to reflect 
this division (see T.D. TTB-44, 71 FR 16918, April 14, 2006). However, 
several regulations in part 70 that required updating were not included 
in those amendments. Therefore, this document makes the following 
amendments to reflect current TTB authorities, organization, practices, 
and structure:
     In Sec. Sec.  70.1, 70.21, 70.181, 70.306, and 70.413, 
outdated references to the former ATF's regional structure are 
eliminated.
     In Sec.  70.11, the definition of Provisions of 26 U.S.C. 
enforced and administered by the Bureau is amended to reflect current 
TTB authorities. Section 70.11 is also amended to include a definition 
of ``IRC.''
     In Sec. Sec.  70.441, 70.442, 70.443, 70.444, 70.445, and 
70.448, references to outdated 27 CFR part numbers formerly used by ATF 
are updated to reflect the new 27 CFR chapter II part numbers used by 
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
     Section 70.471 is amended for clarity and to eliminate 
references to matters under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Alcohol, 
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and to provide contact information at 
that agency for requests for information regarding its jurisdiction.
    In addition, part 70 is amended to clarify existing TTB authorities 
and practices or to correct grammatical or typographical errors. 
Section 70.22(a) is revised to clarify TTB's existing authority, 
pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 7602(b), regarding the examination of books and 
witnesses for the purpose of inquiring into any offense connected with 
the administration or enforcement of the internal revenue laws 
administered by TTB. Sections 70.22(b), 70.148, 70.486, and 70.803 are 
amended to correct typographical errors, and Sec.  70.701(d) is amended 
to correct two grammatical errors. In addition, outdated references to 
the IRC of 1954 and obsolete 27 CFR part numbers are updated or removed 
in Sec. Sec.  70.411 and 70.431.
    Section 702 of the Children's Health Insurance Program 
Reauthorization Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111-3, 123 Stat. 8) amended 
sections 5712, 5713, 5721, 5722, 5723, and 5741 of the IRC to extend 
permit, inventory, reporting, packaging, labeling, marking, noticing, 
and recordkeeping requirements to manufacturers and importers of 
processed tobacco even though such processed tobacco is not subject to 
excise tax under the IRC. As a result, TTB made amendments in 2009 to 
its tobacco regulations to reflect this new authority (see T.D. TTB-78, 
74 FR 29401, 6/22/2009, for a full discussion of this issue). 
Therefore, the discussion of the 27 CFR parts 40 and 41 tobacco 
regulations in Sec.  70.431(b) is amended to include references to 
processed tobacco.
    In Sec.  70.802, paragraph (g) regarding the handling of comments 
received in response to a notice of proposed rulemaking is amended to 
reflect TTB's current administrative practices. The revised text 
explains that comments received will be posted to the appropriate 
docket on the Regulations.gov Web site (https://www.regulations.gov), 
and that the comments will be available for in-person inspection in the 
TTB public reading room. The revised text also explains how to request 
copies of comments and, as stated in the current regulation, that the 
fees outlined in 31 CFR 1.7 apply to such requests.

Part 71

    Section 71.27 is amended to add a missing end parenthesis, and 
Sec.  71.108(a) is amended to correct a form number reference. Section 
71.110 is obsolete and is being removed since TTB does not use the 
former ATF's regional structure.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do 
not apply.

Executive Order 12866

    It has been determined that this final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action as defined in E.O. 12866. Therefore, a regulatory 
assessment is not necessary.

Prior Notice and Comment Procedures

    Because this final rule merely makes technical corrections to 
existing regulations to update or clarify the application of those 
provisions and does not change the Bureau's interpretation of any 
regulation or the requirements of any recordkeeping provision, TTB has 
determined in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) that it is unnecessary 
and contrary to the public interest to follow prior public notice and 
comment procedures and, therefore, 5 U.S.C. 553(b) does not apply.

into the United States from areas other than Puerto Rico and the Virgin 
Islands shall be deposited into the Treasuries of Puerto Rico and the 
Virgin Islands at the rate prescribed in 26 U.S.C. 7652(f). The 
distribution of such amount between Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands 
shall be computed by using permanent base percentages, which represent 
the excise taxes collected on rum brought into the United States from 
Puerto Rico and from the Virgin Islands during fiscal year 1983. The 
base percentages are 87.626889 percent for Puerto Rico and 12.373111 
percent for the Virgin Islands. The formula shall be as follows:
    (1) Take the total amount of excise taxes collected on all rum 
brought or imported into the United States from all areas (including 
Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands) during the previous fiscal year 
(October 1-September 30) and multiply that amount by 0.87626889 to 
determine the share of the entire U.S. rum market that will be allotted 
to Puerto Rico and by 0.12373111 to determine the share of the entire 
U.S. rum market that will be allotted to the Virgin Islands;
    (2) Subtract from the share allotted to Puerto Rico under paragraph 
(a)(1) of this section the excise taxes collected on rum brought into 
the United States from Puerto Rico during the previous fiscal year, and 
subtract from the share allotted to the Virgin Islands under paragraph 
(a)(1) of this section the excise taxes collected on rum imported into 
the United States from the Virgin Islands during the previous fiscal 
year, to determine each possession's loss or gain in excise taxes in 
relation to the previous fiscal year's U.S. rum market. Then divide 
each result by the total

Virgin Islands.
