ACTION: Final rule; effective date of OMB control numbers. AGENCY: This rule provides notice of the approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and resulting effectiveness of the collectionof-information requirements published by NMFS on July 2, 1996. OMB approved the collection-of-information requirements in April 2001, and extended that approval in September emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:11 Sep 24, 2012 Jkt 226001 2001, November 2004, April 2008, and July 2011. DATES: The amendments in this rule are effective October 25, 2012. The collection-of-information requirements in § 660.404, published on July 2, 1996 (61 FR 34570), are effective October 25, 2012. OMB approves the collection-ofinformation requirements in § 660.408, published on July 2, 1996 (61 FR 34570), as of October 25, 2012. ADDRESSES: This final rule is also accessible on the Web site of NMFS’ Northwest Region (http:// www.nwr.noaa.gov). Written comments regarding the burden-hour estimates or other aspects of the collection-ofinformation requirements contained in this final rule may be submitted to William W. Stelle, Jr., Regional Administrator, Northwest Region, NMFS, 7600 Sand Point Way NE., Seattle, WA 98115–0070. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peggy Mundy, Northwest Region Salmon Management Division, NMFS, 206–526–4323. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS published a final rule on July 2, 1996 (61 FR 34570) that consolidated several parts of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) into a new CFR part 660 containing regulations for implementing management measures for fisheries operating in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off West Coast states. This new part 660 included a collection of information associated with recordkeeping and reporting requirements regulations at § 660.404 and § 660.408(o). This collection was previously associated with regulations at § 661.4 and § 661.20, under OMB control number 0648–0222. The 1996 rule stated that OMB approval under control number 0648–0222 had expired and that NMFS was in the process of obtaining OMB approval for the collection of information under the new regulations. This final rule announces OMB approval and effectiveness of the collection of information associated with regulations at § 660.404 and § 660.408(o). Initial approval of these regulations in their current location in the Code of Federal regulations occurred on April 25, 2001 under OMB control number 048–0433. OMB extended this approval on September 28, 2001, November 29, 2004, April 8, 2008, and July 8, 2011. The current approval expires on July 31, 2014. Classification This rule makes effective a collection of information requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act. The PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 collection of this information has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB Control Number 0648–433. Based on the management regime specified each year, designated regulatory areas in the commercial ocean salmon fishery off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California may be managed by numerical quotas. To accurately assess catches relative to quota attainment during the fishing season, catch data by regulatory area must be collected in a timely manner. The requirements to land salmon within specific time frames and in specific areas may be implemented in the preseason regulations to aid in timely and accurate catch accounting for a regulatory area. State landing systems normally gather the data at the time of landing. If unsafe weather conditions or mechanical problems prevent compliance with landing requirements, fishermen need an alternative to allow for a safe response. Fishermen would be exempt from landing requirements if the appropriate notifications are made to provide the name of the vessel, the port where delivery will be made, the approximate amount of salmon (by species) on board, and the estimated time of arrival. These reports are generally made via at-sea radio, cellular phone transmissions, or other electronic communication. The annual reporting burden to the public is estimated at 10 hours, based on an estimated 15 minutes per response. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), there is good cause to waive prior notice and opportunity for public comment for this action because notice and comment would be unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. This action simply provides notice of OMB’s approval of the reporting requirements at issue, which has already occurred, and renders those requirements effective. Thus this action does not involve any further exercise of agency discretion and no comment received at this time would impact any decision by NOAA or OMB. In addition, the public has had the opportunity to comment on both the substance of the reporting requirements, at the time NOAA adopted them, and on NOAA’s requests for extension of OMB’s approval. The reporting requirements at issue were detailed in proposed rules on which NOAA accepted public comment. The reporting provisions in 50 CFR 660.404(a) were initially published at 49 FR 32414–01 (August 14, 1984), with comments accepted until September 21, 1984, and published as a final rule at 49 FR 43679–02 (October 31, 1984). The E:\FR\FM\25SER1.SGM 25SER1 58931 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 186 / Tuesday, September 25, 2012 / Rules and Regulations reporting provisions in 50 CFR 660.408(o) and 50 CFR 660.404 were initially published at 54 FR 11976–01 (March 23, 1989), with comments accepted until April 5, 1989, prior to publication of the final rule at 54 FR 19185–01 (May 4, 1989). NOAA published notice of and requested public comments on its requests for OMB’s approval of the information collection and prior to each extension of OMB’s approval (e.g., 66 FR 17147, March 29, 2001; 66 FR 28731, May 24, 2001; 69 FR 35331, June 24, 2004; 72 FR 33204, June 15, 2007; 76 FR 329, January 4, 2011). NOAA received no comments on the 2011 request for extension. An additional opportunity for public comment at this point would not be meaningful, and would be duplicative. Because prior notice and opportunity for public comment are not required for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., are inapplicable. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS published a final rule on July 2, 1996 
(61 FR 34570) that consolidated several parts of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) into a new CFR part 660 containing regulations for 
implementing management measures for fisheries operating in the 
exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off West Coast states. This new part 660 
included a collection of information associated with recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements regulations at Sec.  660.404 and Sec.  
660.408(o). This collection was previously associated with regulations 
at Sec.  661.4 and Sec.  661.20, under OMB control number 0648-0222. 
The 1996 rule stated that OMB approval under control number 0648-0222 
had expired and that NMFS was in the process of obtaining OMB approval 
for the collection of information under the new regulations.
    This final rule announces OMB approval and effectiveness of the 
collection of information associated with regulations at Sec.  660.404 
and Sec.  660.408(o). Initial approval of these regulations in their 
current location in the Code of Federal regulations occurred on April 
25, 2001 under OMB control number 048-0433. OMB extended this approval 
on September 28, 2001, November 29, 2004, April 8, 2008, and July 8, 
2011. The current approval expires on July 31, 2014.

Classification

    This rule makes effective a collection of information requirement 
subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act. The collection of this 
information has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) under OMB Control Number 0648-433. Based on the management regime 
specified each year, designated regulatory areas in the commercial 
ocean salmon fishery off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and 
California may be managed by numerical quotas. To accurately assess 
catches relative to quota attainment during the fishing season, catch 
data by regulatory area must be collected in a timely manner. The 
requirements to land salmon within specific time frames and in specific 
areas may be implemented in the preseason regulations to aid in timely 
and accurate catch accounting for a regulatory area. State landing 
systems normally gather the data at the time of landing. If unsafe 
weather conditions or mechanical problems prevent compliance with 
landing requirements, fishermen need an alternative to allow for a safe 
response. Fishermen would be exempt from landing requirements if the 
appropriate notifications are made to provide the name of the vessel, 
the port where delivery will be made, the approximate amount of salmon 
(by species) on board, and the estimated time of arrival. These reports 
are generally made via at-sea radio, cellular phone transmissions, or 
other electronic communication. The annual reporting burden to the 
public is estimated at 10 hours, based on an estimated 15 minutes per 
response.
    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), there is good cause to waive prior 
notice and opportunity for public comment for this action because 
notice and comment would be unnecessary and contrary to the public 
interest. This action simply provides notice of OMB's approval of the 
reporting requirements at issue, which has already occurred, and 
renders those requirements effective. Thus this action does not involve 
any further exercise of agency discretion and no comment received at 
this time would impact any decision by NOAA or OMB. In addition, the 
public has had the opportunity to comment on both the substance of the 
reporting requirements, at the time NOAA adopted them, and on NOAA's 
requests for extension of OMB's approval. The reporting requirements at 
issue were detailed in proposed rules on which NOAA accepted public 
comment. The reporting provisions in 50 CFR 660.404(a) were initially 
published at 49 FR 32414-01 (August 14, 1984), with comments accepted 
until September 21, 1984, and published as a final rule at 49 FR 43679-
02 (October 31, 1984). The

[[Page 58931]]

reporting provisions in 50 CFR 660.408(o) and 50 CFR 660.404 were 
initially published at 54 FR 11976-01 (March 23, 1989), with comments 
accepted until April 5, 1989, prior to publication of the final rule at 
54 FR 19185-01 (May 4, 1989). NOAA published notice of and requested 
public comments on its requests for OMB's approval of the information 
collection and prior to each extension of OMB's approval (e.g., 66 FR 
17147, March 29, 2001; 66 FR 28731, May 24, 2001; 69 FR 35331, June 24, 
2004; 72 FR 33204, June 15, 2007; 76 FR 329, January 4, 2011). NOAA 
received no comments on the 2011 request for extension. An additional 
opportunity for public comment at this point would not be meaningful, 
and would be duplicative.
    Because prior notice and opportunity for public comment are not 
required for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other law, the 
analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 
et seq., are inapplicable.
    This final rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
