Download as PDF 15604 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 52 / Friday, March 16, 2012 / Rules and Regulations Children from Environmental Health 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. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD 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 16:29 Mar 15, 2012 Jkt 226001 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)(h), of the Instruction. This rule involves implementation of regulations within 33 CFR Part 100 applicable to organized marine events on the navigable waters of the United States that could negatively impact the safety of waterway users and shore side activities in the event area. The category of water activities includes but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat racing, swimming events, crew racing, canoe and sail board racing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 21, 2012, the Postal Service filed a notice (R2012–6) with the Postal Regulatory Commission to temporarily reduce the prices for certain types of First-Class Mail and Standard Mail letters items that contain, in or on the mailpiece, a transactional twodimensional barcode or similar print technology such as watermarks or tags (collectively ‘‘Mobile Barcode’’ or ‘‘Mobile Barcodes’’) readable by consumer mobile devices. In recognition of the success of the mobile barcode promotion in the summer of 2011, the Postal Service offers a revised promotion from July 1, 2012, through August 31, 2012. In this final rule, the Postal Service provides a description of the conditions for eligibility for the price reduction for the mobile commerce and personalization promotion, and the revised mailing standards to implement the promotion. To be eligible, each Presorted and automation mailpiece in the mailing that is listed on the postage statement for that mailing must have a Mobile Barcode on the outside of each piece or on the contents within each piece. When scanned, the Mobile Barcode must lead the recipient of the mailpiece to either: a Web page that allows the recipient to purchase a product or service, or a personalized URL that leads to a Web page whose Web address and content are unique to the mailpiece recipient. In both cases, the Web site must remain mobile-optimized. Mobile Barcodes that direct consumers to Web pages that allow payment for prior or future purchases, or encourage enrollment in online bill payment or paperless statement services are not eligible for the discount. Mailpieces with Mobile Barcodes that convey postage information, destination, sender, or a machinable serial number for security also are not eligible for the discount. The promotion provides an upfront price reduction of 2 percent of the eligible postage for qualifying mailpieces containing Mobile Barcodes as described above. Qualifying mailings are Presorted and automation mailings of First-Class Mail cards, letters, and flats, and Standard Mail (including PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 15605 Nonprofit) letters and flats. Commingled, co-mailed and combined mailings are allowed, but a separate postage statement is required for mailpieces with Mobile Barcodes. Eligible mailings must be accompanied by electronic documentation. Mailings that are prepared by an entity other than the mail owner must indicate the identity of the owner in the electronic documentation. The electronic documentation must identify the mail owner and mail preparer in the ‘‘By/ For’’ fields for all mailings, either by Customer Registration ID (CRID), Mailer ID (MID) or other account type that is assigned by USPS®. Mailings of automation letters or flats must have Intelligent Mail® barcodes. Mailpieces with POSTNETTM barcodes will not be eligible for the price reduction. The price reduction will be taken off the postage amount due at the time of mailing, and there will be no refunds or postage credit provided under this promotion. The promotion discount does not apply to single-piece FirstClass Mail pieces including residual single-piece First-Class Mail pieces on a postage statement for Presorted and automation mailings. Postage Payment Methods Postage payment methods will be restricted to permit imprint, metered postage, or precancelled stamps. Pieces with metered postage must bear an exact amount of postage as stipulated by the class and shape of mail. Affixed postage values for metered mailings will be as follows: First-Class Mail postcards ............. First-Class Mail automation and (PRSTD) machinable letters ......
