SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) recently published a final rule completely revising its distilled spirits plant regulations as contained in 27 CFR part 19. TTB published this final rule as T.D. TTB–92 in the Federal Register of February 16, 2011 (see 76 FR 9080). The final rule also amended cross-references to part 19 found in 27 CFR parts 1, 17, 24, 26, 28, 30 and 31. T.D. TTB–92 is effective on April 18, 2011. After its publication, TTB found that T.D. TTB–92 contained several typographical and textual errors in the revised regulations in part 19 and a textual error in an amendatory instruction for part 31. This document corrects those errors. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 11:35 Apr 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 Specifically, typographical errors are corrected in T.D. TTB–92 in the part 19 table of contents listing for § 19.26 (‘‘Alternate’’ rather than ‘‘lternate’’), in the ‘‘Authority’’ citation at the beginning of the part (‘‘5121–5124’’ rather than ‘‘5121, 5122–5124’’), and in the section heading for § 19.603 (‘‘§ 19.603’’ rather than ‘‘§ 10.603’’). In § 19.1, in the definition of ‘‘Lot identification number,’’ the cross-reference to ‘‘27 CFR 19.485’’ is corrected to read ‘‘§ 19.485’’ for consistency with other internal part 19 cross references. Also in § 19.1, the definitions of ‘‘Kind’’ and ‘‘Package identification number’’ are corrected to use the new part 19 section numbers contained in T.D. TTB–92 rather than section numbers from the version of part 19 being replaced. In § 19.454(a), TTB is correcting ‘‘SDA’’ to read ‘‘denatured spirits’’ in order to clarify that denatured spirits, including specially denatured spirits and completely denatured alcohol, withdrawn free of tax under 27 CFR part 20 may be returned to bonded premises in accordance with § 19.454. In § 19.454(e), TTB is correcting ‘‘SDA’’ to read ‘‘specially denatured spirits’’ in order to clarify that specially denatured spirits, including specially denatured alcohol and specially denatured rum, withdrawn free of tax for export under 27 CFR part 28 may be returned to bonded premises in accordance with § 19.454. Also, as described in T.D. TTB–92, TTB intends to require serial numbers on certain records to either commence with the number ‘‘1’’ each calendar or fiscal year or otherwise be unique and not repeated. These numbering options are incorporated into the recordkeeping requirements contained in § 19.618, Gauge record, and § 19.620, Transfer record—consignor’s responsibility. However, the option to use a unique, non-repeated number was inadvertently left out of § 19.599, Bottling and packing records. TTB is therefore correcting § 19.599(b) to conform to the similar recordkeeping requirements found in §§ 19.618 and 19.620. In addition, the amendatory instruction updating a cross-reference to part 19 in 27 CFR part 30 was incorrectly phrased. When referring to the existing text of § 30.31(d), the amendatory instructions in T.D. TTB–92 should have used the phrase ‘‘27 CFR 19.383’’ rather than merely ‘‘§ 19.383.’’ 1. On page 9090, in the third column, in the part 19 table of contents, the listing ‘‘19.26 lternate methods or procedures.’’ is corrected to read ‘‘19.26 Alternate methods or procedures.’’. 2. On page 9094, in the second column, in the authority citation for 27 CFR part 19, in the fourth line, the number phrase ‘‘5121, 5122–5124’’ is corrected to read ‘‘5121–5124’’. Corrections In the final rule document numbered FR Doc. 2011–1956 beginning on page 9080 in the Federal Register issue of Wednesday, February 16, 2011, make the following corrections: 10. On page 9171, in the third column, in paragraph 16, in the amendatory instructions for § 30.31, the phrase ‘‘the reference to ‘§ 19.383’ ’’ is corrected to read ‘‘the reference to ‘27 CFR 19.383’ of this chapter’’.

Confidential business information identified and located as set forth above will not be placed in the public docket file, nor will it be posted online. If you wish to inspect the agency’s public docket file in person by appointment, please see the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT paragraph. II. Background ITVERP is a Federal program that provides reimbursement to nationals of the United States and Federal government employees (and certain family members of such individuals, under some circumstances), who are victims of international terrorism and who incur expenses as a result of such incidents. For further information, see the ITVERP Web site at http:// www.ojp.usdoj.gov/ovc/intdir/itverp. OVC is promulgating (pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 10603c and 42 U.S.C. 10604(a)) this interim-final rule to provide the Director of OVC with express discretionary authority to accept claims filed more than three years after the date that an incident is designated as one of international terrorism. Largely owing to considerations of administrative convenience, the present ITVERP rule regarding application deadlines limits the period within which OVC would entertain waivers of claim filing deadlines. Based on experience administering the program since it went into effect in 2006, OVC has determined that this limit on waivers of late claims may lead to denials of reimbursement for victims with otherwise meritorious claims, even under circumstances where tolling of the deadline would be appropriate. The rule will allow the Director of OVC to toll or extend the deadline for a late-filed claim where the Director PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19909 finds good cause to do so. In the ordinary course, a showing of good cause generally would require that the claimant submit a written explanation— satisfactory to the Director—for missing the deadline. Examples of good cause include situations where a victim’s treatment for injuries sustained in an incident were covered initially by collateral sources, but these sources later become unavailable after the filing deadline has expired; where outreach to overseas claimants has not been effective; and where a claimant’s extended illness, living abroad in remote areas for extended periods of time, or barriers to accessing information about the program led to the late filing. Absent circumstances consonant with the foregoing, good cause would not exist; thus, for example, claimant’s missing the deadline due to mere inattentiveness to the program’s deadlines would not be sufficient to establish good cause. The amended rule will not alter any existing regulatory deadlines, nor will it impose any new deadlines (or any burden whatsoever) on claimants, but instead merely will operate to relieve an administrative restriction, in the existing rule, on claim filing (such rule having been promulgated largely for the administrative convenience of OVC, which has found it, over the course of four years of program administration, to be unnecessary). This rule is being published in interim-final form, effective immediately, as there are presently ITVERP claims before OVC that might otherwise be unnecessarily denied or delayed. III. Regulatory Requirements Executive Order 12866—Regulatory Planning and Review This regulation has been drafted in accordance with Exec. Order No. 12866, section 1(b), 58 FR 51, 735 (Sept. 30, 1993), Principles of Regulation. OJP has determined that this regulation is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order No. 12866. Nevertheless, this regulation has been reviewed, in accordance with the general principles of Executive Order No. 12866, by the Office of Management and Budget. Administrative Procedure Act OVC’s implementation of this rule as an interim-final rule, with provision for post-promulgation public comment, is based on findings of good cause pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) and (d)). This minor rule amendment merely alleviates a procedural restriction on E:\FR\FM\11APR1.SGM 11APR1

Revision of Distilled Spirits Plant Regulations; Corrections

AGENCY: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, Treasury.

ACTION: Final rule; Treasury decision; correction.

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

SUMMARY: The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau published a final 
rule revising its distilled spirits plant regulations in the Federal 
Register of February 16, 2011 (76 FR 9080). That final rule contained 
several typographical and textual errors. This document corrects those 
errors.

DATES: Effective Date: April 18, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher M. Thiemann, Regulations 
and Rulings Division, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, 1310 G 
Street, NW., Suite 200E, Washington, DC 20220; telephone 202-453-2265.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau 
(TTB) recently published a final rule completely revising its distilled 
spirits plant regulations as contained in 27 CFR part 19. TTB published 
this final rule as T.D. TTB-92 in the Federal Register of February 16, 
2011 (see 76 FR 9080). The final rule also amended cross-references to 
part 19 found in 27 CFR parts 1, 17, 24, 26, 28, 30 and 31. T.D. TTB-92 
is effective on April 18, 2011.
    After its publication, TTB found that T.D. TTB-92 contained several 
typographical and textual errors in the revised regulations in part 19 
and a textual error in an amendatory instruction for part 31. This 
document corrects those errors.
    Specifically, typographical errors are corrected in T.D. TTB-92 in 
the part 19 table of contents listing for Sec.  19.26 (``Alternate'' 
rather than ``lternate''), in the ``Authority'' citation at the 
beginning of the part (``5121-5124'' rather than ``5121, 5122-5124''), 
and in the section heading for Sec.  19.603 (``Sec.  19.603'' rather 
than ``Sec.  10.603''). In Sec.  19.1, in the definition of ``Lot 
identification number,'' the cross-reference to ``27 CFR 19.485'' is 
corrected to read ``Sec.  19.485'' for consistency with other internal 
part 19 cross references. Also in Sec.  19.1, the definitions of 
``Kind'' and ``Package identification number'' are corrected to use the 
new part 19 section numbers contained in T.D. TTB-92 rather than 
section numbers from the version of part 19 being replaced.
    In Sec.  19.454(a), TTB is correcting ``SDA'' to read ``denatured 
spirits'' in order to clarify that denatured spirits, including 
specially denatured spirits and completely denatured alcohol, withdrawn 
free of tax under 27 CFR part 20 may be returned to bonded premises in 
accordance with Sec.  19.454. In Sec.  19.454(e), TTB is correcting 
``SDA'' to read ``specially denatured spirits'' in order to clarify 
that specially denatured spirits, including specially denatured alcohol 
and specially denatured rum, withdrawn free of tax for export under 27 
CFR part 28 may be returned to bonded premises in accordance with Sec.  
19.454.
    Also, as described in T.D. TTB-92, TTB intends to require serial 
numbers on certain records to either commence with the number ``1'' 
each calendar or fiscal year or otherwise be unique and not repeated. 
These numbering options are incorporated into the recordkeeping 
requirements contained in Sec.  19.618, Gauge record, and Sec.  19.620, 
Transfer record--consignor's responsibility. However, the option to use 
a unique, non-repeated number was inadvertently left out of Sec.  
19.599, Bottling and packing records. TTB is therefore correcting Sec.  
19.599(b) to conform to the similar recordkeeping requirements found in 
Sec. Sec.  19.618 and 19.620.
    In addition, the amendatory instruction updating a cross-reference 
to part 19 in 27 CFR part 30 was incorrectly phrased. When referring to 
the existing text of Sec.  30.31(d), the amendatory instructions in 
T.D. TTB-92 should have used the phrase ``27 CFR 19.383'' rather than 
merely ``Sec.  19.383.''
