Download as PDF 8658 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 31 / Tuesday, February 15, 2011 / Rules and Regulations Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:22 Feb 14, 2011 Jkt 223001 Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves establishing a temporary safety zone, as described in paragraph (34)(g), that will be in effect for less than three hours. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, Waterways.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 1, 2011, compliance with the IMSBC Code became mandatory for all vessels subject to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as amended, that carry bulk solid cargoes other than grain. The final rule (75 FR 64586) allows use of the IMSBC Code as an alternate form of compliance with 46 CFR part 148, subject to conditions and limitations. The rule reduces the need for the current Special Permits for the carriage of certain solid hazardous materials in bulk. The Coast Guard issues Special Permits as part of its mission to ensure maritime safety and facilitate U.S. commerce. To ensure that the carriage requirements imposed by the Special Permit are sufficient and that the permit holder is complying with the terms of the permit, the Coast Guard requires the submission of information concerning the history of shipments made under the terms of the Special Permit. With the exception of this collection of information, the Bulk Solid Hazardous Materials: Harmonization With the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code rule became effective on January 1, 2011. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information until the collection is approved by OMB. Accordingly, the preamble to the final rule stated that the Coast Guard would not enforce the collection of information requirements occurring under 46 CFR part 148 until the collection of information request was approved by OMB, and also stated that the Coast Guard would publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing that OMB approved and assigned a control number for the requirement. The Coast Guard submitted the information collection request to OMB for approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. On January 28, 2011, OMB approved the VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:22 Feb 14, 2011 Jkt 223001 collection of information and assigned the collection OMB Control Number 1625–0025 entitled ‘‘Carriage of Bulk Solids Requiring Special Handling—46 CFR 148’’.

Bulk Solid Hazardous Materials: Harmonization With the 
International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Rule; information collection approval.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On October 19, 2010, the Coast Guard amended its regulations 
governing the carriage of solid hazardous materials in bulk to allow 
use of the IMSBC Code as an equivalent form of compliance. The 
amendment triggered information collection requirements affecting the 
Special Permits issued by the Coast Guard that allow the carriage of 
hazardous bulk solid materials not addressed in the amended 
regulations. This notice announces that the collection of information 
has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget

[[Page 8659]]

(OMB) and may now be enforced. The OMB control number is 1625-0025.

DATES: The collection of information requirement under 46 CFR part 148 
will be enforced beginning February 15, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 1, 2011, compliance with the 
IMSBC Code became mandatory for all vessels subject to the 
International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, 
as amended, that carry bulk solid cargoes other than grain. The final 
rule (75 FR 64586) allows use of the IMSBC Code as an alternate form of 
compliance with 46 CFR part 148, subject to conditions and limitations. 
The rule reduces the need for the current Special Permits for the 
carriage of certain solid hazardous materials in bulk.
    The Coast Guard issues Special Permits as part of its mission to 
ensure maritime safety and facilitate U.S. commerce. To ensure that the 
carriage requirements imposed by the Special Permit are sufficient and 
that the permit holder is complying with the terms of the permit, the 
Coast Guard requires the submission of information concerning the 
history of shipments made under the terms of the Special Permit.
    With the exception of this collection of information, the Bulk 
Solid Hazardous Materials: Harmonization With the International 
Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code rule became effective on 
January 1, 2011. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501-3520), an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information until the collection is approved by OMB. Accordingly, the 
preamble to the final rule stated that the Coast Guard would not 
enforce the collection of information requirements occurring under 46 
CFR part 148 until the collection of information request was approved 
by OMB, and also stated that the Coast Guard would publish a notice in 
the Federal Register announcing that OMB approved and assigned a 
control number for the requirement.
    The Coast Guard submitted the information collection request to OMB 
for approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. On 
January 28, 2011, OMB approved the collection of information and 
assigned the collection OMB Control Number 1625-0025 entitled 
``Carriage of Bulk Solids Requiring Special Handling--46 CFR 148''. The 
approval for this collection of information expires on January 31, 
2014. A copy of the OMB notice of action is available in our online 
docket (USCG-2009-0091) at http://www.regulations.gov.
