ACTION: Notice and Request for Review and Comment. AGENCY: This notice pertains to Forms EIA–3, the Quarterly Coal Consumption and Quality Report–Manufacturing and Transformation/Processing Coal Plants and Commercial and Institutional Coal Users; EIA–5, the Quarterly Coal Consumption and Quality Report–Coke Plants; EIA–7A, the Coal Production and Preparation Report—Coal Mines and Preparation Plants; and EIA–8A, the Coal Stocks Report–Traders and Brokers. EIA proposes to change and strengthen the data protection provisions on Forms EIA–3, EIA–5, EIA–7A, and EIA–8A. No changes are proposed for the standby surveys Forms: EIA–1, Weekly Coal Monitoring Report-General Industries and Blast Furnaces; EIA–4, Weekly Coal Monitoring Report-Coke SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\10MYN1.SGM 10MYN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 91 / Friday, May 10, 2013 / Notices Plants; EIA–6Q, Quarterly Coal ReportCoal Producers and Distributors; and EIA–20, Weekly Coal Monitoring Report of Coal Burning Utilities and Independent Power Producers. EIA’s initial action was a request for comment(s) from interested parties and those who might be affected by changes in the EIA confidentiality procedure regarding these coal survey forms. The request for comments was widely publicized through a Federal Register Notice (FRN), emails to respondents and trade groups, and announcements on the Internet. (Refer to Federal Register: November 27, 2012 (Volume 77, No. 228) [pp 70745–70746]. Also, on December 19, 2012, EIA held a webinar with stakeholders, including members of the National Lime Association and National Mining Association, to explain the proposed change in the confidentiality protections and solicit comments. The comments received from the members of the National Lime Association and National Mining Association supported the proposed changes. In this notice, EIA proposes to protect and withhold from public release company level information reported on Forms EIA–3, EIA–5, EIA–7A, and EIA– 8A. Currently, data reported on these forms are not protected except for certain selected cost and revenue data elements. For Forms EIA–3, EIA–5, and EIA–8A, EIA proposes to protect company information reported on these forms from public release in identifiable form to the extent it satisfies exemption criteria under the Freedom of Information Act and the Trade Secrets Act. However, disclosure limitation procedures will not be applied to the State- and regional-level, statistical, and quantity data published from these surveys. Thus, there may be some statistics that are based on data from fewer than three respondents that may affect the identifiability of reported data. Disclosure limitation procedures will be applied to cost data reported on Forms EIA–3 and EIA–5 and revenue data reported on Forms EIA–7A and EIA–8A. With regards to Form EIA–7A only, the name and address of the responding company, the mine or plant type, and location will continue to be considered public information. These data elements will continue to be released in EIA’s public use files and will not be protected from disclosure in identifiable form when releasing statistical aggregate (State-level) information. These data elements are currently released on the EIA Web site in the Form EIA–7A public use file, along with company identifiable Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) data, which are VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:05 May 09, 2013 Jkt 229001 also not protected. All other information reported on Form EIA–7A will be protected from public release in identifiable form to the extent it satisfies exemption criteria under the Freedom of Information Act and the Trade Secrets Act. All proposed changes to the data protection provisions for Forms EIA–3, EIA–5, EIA–7A, and EIA–8A will be retroactive and apply to data reported for calendar years 2011 and 2012. Applying this change retroactively to data reported for 2011 preserves the continuity of certain data series and provides continuity for the main components of EIA’s pre-2011 data protection policy. Responses to EIA–3, EIA–5, EIA–7A, and EIA–8A are mandatory. Comments regarding this collection must be received on or before June 10, 2013. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the OMB Desk Officer of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible.

Proposed Change to Data Protection

AGENCY: U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. Department 
of Energy (DOE).

ACTION: Notice and Request for Review and Comment.

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

SUMMARY: This notice pertains to Forms EIA-3, the Quarterly Coal 
Consumption and Quality Report-Manufacturing and Transformation/
Processing Coal Plants and Commercial and Institutional Coal Users; 
EIA-5, the Quarterly Coal Consumption and Quality Report-Coke Plants; 
EIA-7A, the Coal Production and Preparation Report--Coal Mines and 
Preparation Plants; and EIA-8A, the Coal Stocks Report-Traders and 
Brokers. EIA proposes to change and strengthen the data protection 
provisions on Forms EIA-3, EIA-5, EIA-7A, and EIA-8A.
    No changes are proposed for the standby surveys Forms: EIA-1, 
Weekly Coal Monitoring Report-General Industries and Blast Furnaces; 
EIA-4, Weekly Coal Monitoring Report-Coke

[[Page 27371]]

Plants; EIA-6Q, Quarterly Coal Report-Coal Producers and Distributors; 
and EIA-20, Weekly Coal Monitoring Report of Coal Burning Utilities and 
Independent Power Producers.
    EIA's initial action was a request for comment(s) from interested 
parties and those who might be affected by changes in the EIA 
confidentiality procedure regarding these coal survey forms. The 
request for comments was widely publicized through a Federal Register 
Notice (FRN), emails to respondents and trade groups, and announcements 
on the Internet. (Refer to Federal Register: November 27, 2012 (Volume 
77, No. 228) [pp 70745-70746]. Also, on December 19, 2012, EIA held a 
webinar with stakeholders, including members of the National Lime 
Association and National Mining Association, to explain the proposed 
change in the confidentiality protections and solicit comments. The 
comments received from the members of the National Lime Association and 
National Mining Association supported the proposed changes.
    In this notice, EIA proposes to protect and withhold from public 
release company level information reported on Forms EIA-3, EIA-5, EIA-
7A, and EIA-8A. Currently, data reported on these forms are not 
protected except for certain selected cost and revenue data elements. 
For Forms EIA-3, EIA-5, and EIA-8A, EIA proposes to protect company 
information reported on these forms from public release in identifiable 
form to the extent it satisfies exemption criteria under the Freedom of 
Information Act and the Trade Secrets Act. However, disclosure 
limitation procedures will not be applied to the State- and regional-
level, statistical, and quantity data published from these surveys. 
Thus, there may be some statistics that are based on data from fewer 
than three respondents that may affect the identifiability of reported 
data. Disclosure limitation procedures will be applied to cost data 
reported on Forms EIA-3 and EIA-5 and revenue data reported on Forms 
EIA-7A and EIA-8A. With regards to Form EIA-7A only, the name and 
address of the responding company, the mine or plant type, and location 
will continue to be considered public information. These data elements 
will continue to be released in EIA's public use files and will not be 
protected from disclosure in identifiable form when releasing 
statistical aggregate (State-level) information. These data elements 
are currently released on the EIA Web site in the Form EIA-7A public 
use file, along with company identifiable Mine Safety and Health 
Administration (MSHA) data, which are also not protected. All other 
information reported on Form EIA-7A will be protected from public 
release in identifiable form to the extent it satisfies exemption 
criteria under the Freedom of Information Act and the Trade Secrets 
Act. All proposed changes to the data protection provisions for Forms 
EIA-3, EIA-5, EIA-7A, and EIA-8A will be retroactive and apply to data 
reported for calendar years 2011 and 2012. Applying this change 
retroactively to data reported for 2011 preserves the continuity of 
certain data series and provides continuity for the main components of 
EIA's pre-2011 data protection policy. Responses to EIA-3, EIA-5, EIA-
7A, and EIA-8A are mandatory.
