SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\03JYR1.SGM 03JYR1 WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 39972 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 128 / Wednesday, July 3, 2013 / Rules and Regulations amendments made by that final rule, these bacteria are now controlled under ECCN 1C351.c.17, with the control language having been clarified to read ‘‘Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) of serogroups O26, O45, O103, O104, O111, O121, O145, O157, and other shiga toxin producing serogroups.’’ The preamble of that final rule also contained an error in its description of the amendments to ECCN 2B352. Specifically, in the description of the technical characteristics of the spraydrying equipment now controlled under ECCN 2B352.f, the preamble mistakenly referred to ‘‘a typical mean product particles size’’ when it should have said ‘‘a typical mean product particle size,’’ consistent with the control language in ECCN 2B352.f.2. In addition, that final rule amended ECCN 2B352, under the ‘‘Items’’ paragraph in the List of Items Controlled, by redesignating paragraphs f. through h. as paragraphs g. through i., respectively, and adding a new paragraph f. to control specified spray drying equipment capable of drying toxins or pathogenic microorganisms. However, that final rule did not make the necessary conforming changes, in ECCN 2B352.i.3 and Technical Note 2 to ECCN 2B352, to reflect the redesignation of 2B352.h (specified spraying or fogging systems and components therefor) as 2B352.i. This rule makes these conforming changes, as follows. First, in ECCN 2B352.i.3, the phrase ‘‘as specified in paragraphs h.1 and h.2 of this ECCN’’ is revised to read, ‘‘as specified in paragraphs i.1 and i.2 of this ECCN.’’ Second, in Technical Note 2 to ECCN 2B352, the phrase ‘‘as specified in 2B352.h’’ is revised to read, ‘‘as specified in 2B352.i.’’ These conforming changes do not affect either the scope of the EAR controls that apply to equipment controlled under ECCN 2B352 or the specific equipment that is subject to these EAR controls. Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013), and as extended by the Notice of August 15, 2012, 77 FR 49699 (August 16, 2012), has continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. BIS continues to carry out the provisions of the Export Administration Act, as appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, pursuant to Executive Order 13222. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:18 Jul 02, 2013 Jkt 229001 Rulemaking Requirements 1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This rule contains a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA. This collection has been approved by OMB under Control Number 0694–0088 (Multi-Purpose Application), which carries a burden hour estimate of 58 minutes to prepare and submit form BIS–748. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to Jasmeet Seehra, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and to the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room 6622, Washington, DC 20230. 3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132. 4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for public participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable because this regulation involves a military and foreign affairs function of the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). The changes contained in this rule are nonsubstantive technical corrections of a previously published rule that has already been exempted from notice and comment and delay in effective date provisions, because the content of the June 5, 2013, final rule involves a military and foreign affairs function of PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). The corrections contained in this final rule are essential to ensuring the accurate and complete implementation of the June 5, 2013, final rule. Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required for this rule under the Administrative Procedure Act or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable. Therefore, this regulation is issued in final form. List of Subjects in 15 CFR Part 774 Exports, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

Under § 1.108(i)–2(b)(3)(iv), when a partnership makes an election under section 108(i), one or more of the partners in the partnership may be required to provide certain information to the partnership so that the partnership can correctly determine each such partner’s deferred section 752 amount with respect to an applicable debt instrument. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid control number assigned by the Office of Management and Budget. Books or records relating to a collection of information must be retained as long as their contents may become material in the administration of any internal revenue law. Generally, tax returns and return information are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103. Background Section 108(i) was added to the Code by section 1231 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009, Public Law 111–5 (123 Stat. 338 (2009)), and generally provides for an elective deferral of cancellation of debt income (COD income) realized by a taxpayer from a reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument that occurs after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011. COD income deferred under section 108(i) is included in gross income ratably over a five taxable-year period (inclusion period) beginning with the taxpayer’s fourth or fifth taxable year following the taxable year of the reacquisition. When a debt instrument is issued (or treated as issued) as part of the reacquisition, some or all of any original issue discount (OID) expense accruing from the debt instrument in a taxable year prior to the first taxable year of the inclusion period may also be required to be deferred (deferred OID deduction). The aggregate amount of deferred OID deductions is limited to the amount of COD income deferred with respect to the applicable debt instrument for which the section 108(i) election is made, and the aggregate amount of deferred OID deductions is taken into account ratably over the inclusion period. In general, COD income deferred under section 108(i) and related deferred OID deductions with respect to an applicable debt instrument that have not been previously taken into account (deferred items) are accelerated and taken into account in the taxable year in which an acceleration event occurs. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39973 A section 108(i) election is irrevocable and, if a section 108(i) election is made, sections 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (D) do not apply to the COD income that is deferred under section 108(i). Section 108(i)(7) authorizes the Secretary to prescribe regulations, rules, or other guidance as may be necessary or appropriate for purposes of applying section 108(i). In August 2009, the IRS and the Treasury Department issued Rev. Proc. 2009–37 (2009–36 IRB 309), which provides election procedures for taxpayers (including partnerships and S corporations) and other guidance under section 108(i). Partnerships and S corporations that make an election under section 108(i) (electing partnership or electing S corporation) must follow the election procedures and reporting requirements of Rev. Proc. 2009–37. Temporary regulations (TD 9498, 75 FR 49380) and a notice of proposed rulemaking (REG–144762–09, 75 FR 49427) (proposed regulations) crossreferencing the temporary regulations were published in the Federal Register on August 13, 2010. No public hearing was requested or held. However, written comments responding to the notice of proposed rulemaking were received from the public. These comments were considered and are available for public inspection at https:// www.regulations.gov or upon request. After consideration of the comments, the proposed regulations are adopted as amended by this Treasury decision, and the corresponding temporary regulations are removed. The revisions are discussed in this preamble. Summary of Comments and Explanation of Provisions A. Partnership-Level Election Section 108(i)(5)(B)(iii) provides that in the case of a partnership, S corporation, or other passthrough entity that reacquires an applicable debt instrument, the election under section 108(i) shall be made by the partnership, S corporation, or other entity involved. One commenter suggested that the final regulations permit a partner in a partnership to make a section 108(i) election if the partnership does not make the election. The commenter reasoned that a partner-level election rule would align section 108(i) with section 108(d)(6), which generally applies the rules under section 108 at the partner level. Additionally, the commenter noted that a partner-level election would be beneficial when the partners who control the partnership have no interest in making a section E:\FR\FM\03JYR1.SGM 03JYR1

Implementation of the Understandings Reached at the 2012 
Australia Group (AG) Plenary Meeting and the 2012 AG Intersessional 
Decisions; Changes to Select Agent Controls--Correction

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendment.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final 
rule in the Federal Register on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 (78 FR 33692), 
that amended the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement 
the understandings reached at the June 2012 plenary meeting of the 
Australia Group (AG) and the 2012 AG intersessional decisions. That 
final rule also amended the EAR to reflect recent changes to the 
controls maintained by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service 
(APHIS), U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services, on the possession, use, and transfer of select biological 
agents within the United States. The preamble of that final rule 
contained an error in its description of the amendments to Export 
Control Classification Number (ECCN) 1C351 that were based on the 
understandings reached at the 2012 AG Plenary. The preamble also 
contained an error in its description of the amendments to ECCN 2B352 
that were based on the 2012 AG intersessional decisions. In addition, 
that final rule contained errors affecting the control language in ECCN 
2B352, which controls specified equipment capable of use in handling 
biological materials. This document corrects these errors.

DATES: This rule is effective July 3, 2013.

and Biological Controls Division, Office of Nonproliferation and Treaty 
Compliance, Bureau of Industry and Security, Telephone: (202) 482-3343.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 5, 2013, the final rule ``Implementation of the 
Understandings Reached at the 2012 Australia Group (AG) Plenary Meeting 
and the 2012 AG Intersessional Decisions; Changes to Select Agent 
Controls'' was published in the Federal Register (78 FR 33692). In the 
preamble of that final rule, the discussion of the amendments to ECCN 
1C351 erroneously indicated that the bacterium ``Coxiella burnetii'' 
was previously controlled under ECCN 1C351.c.11 when, in fact, this 
bacterium was previously controlled under ECCN 1C351.c.10 and is now 
controlled under 1C351.c.13, based on the amendments contained that 
final rule. Instead, prior to the publication of that final rule, ECCN 
1C351.c.11 controlled ``Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, serotype 
O157 and other verotoxin producing serotypes.'' As a result of the

[[Page 39972]]

amendments made by that final rule, these bacteria are now controlled 
under ECCN 1C351.c.17, with the control language having been clarified 
to read ``Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) of serogroups 
O26, O45, O103, O104, O111, O121, O145, O157, and other shiga toxin 
producing serogroups.''
    The preamble of that final rule also contained an error in its 
description of the amendments to ECCN 2B352. Specifically, in the 
description of the technical characteristics of the spray-drying 
equipment now controlled under ECCN 2B352.f, the preamble mistakenly 
referred to ``a typical mean product particles size'' when it should 
have said ``a typical mean product particle size,'' consistent with the 
control language in ECCN 2B352.f.2.
    In addition, that final rule amended ECCN 2B352, under the 
``Items'' paragraph in the List of Items Controlled, by redesignating 
paragraphs f. through h. as paragraphs g. through i., respectively, and 
adding a new paragraph f. to control specified spray drying equipment 
capable of drying toxins or pathogenic microorganisms. However, that 
final rule did not make the necessary conforming changes, in ECCN 
2B352.i.3 and Technical Note 2 to ECCN 2B352, to reflect the 
redesignation of 2B352.h (specified spraying or fogging systems and 
components therefor) as 2B352.i.
    This rule makes these conforming changes, as follows. First, in 
ECCN 2B352.i.3, the phrase ``as specified in paragraphs h.1 and h.2 of 
this ECCN'' is revised to read, ``as specified in paragraphs i.1 and 
i.2 of this ECCN.'' Second, in Technical Note 2 to ECCN 2B352, the 
phrase ``as specified in 2B352.h'' is revised to read, ``as specified 
in 2B352.i.'' These conforming changes do not affect either the scope 
of the EAR controls that apply to equipment controlled under ECCN 2B352 
or the specific equipment that is subject to these EAR controls.
    Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, 
the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 
2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 
8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013), and as extended by the Notice of 
August 15, 2012, 77 FR 49699 (August 16, 2012), has continued the EAR 
in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. BIS 
continues to carry out the provisions of the Export Administration Act, 
as appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, pursuant to 
Executive Order 13222.

Rulemaking Requirements

    1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty 
for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the 
requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.) (PRA), unless that collection of information displays a currently 
valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This rule 
contains a collection of information subject to the requirements of the 
PRA. This collection has been approved by OMB under Control Number 
0694-0088 (Multi-Purpose Application), which carries a burden hour 
estimate of 58 minutes to prepare and submit form BIS-748. Send 
comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this 
collection of information, including suggestions for reducing the 
burden, to Jasmeet Seehra, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and 
to the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room 
6622, Washington, DC 20230.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132.
    4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 
553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for 
public participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable 
because this regulation involves a military and foreign affairs 
function of the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). The changes 
contained in this rule are non-substantive technical corrections of a 
previously published rule that has already been exempted from notice 
and comment and delay in effective date provisions, because the content 
of the June 5, 2013, final rule involves a military and foreign affairs 
function of the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). The corrections 
contained in this final rule are essential to ensuring the accurate and 
complete implementation of the June 5, 2013, final rule.
    Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking 
and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule. 
Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public 
comment are not required for this rule under the Administrative 
Procedure Act or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable. 
Therefore, this regulation is issued in final form.
