The airport’s geographic coordinates are also adjusted. This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at the airport. DATES: Effective date: 0901 UTC, December 12, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR Part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott Enander, Central Service Center, Operations Support Group, Federal Aviation Administration, Southwest Region, 2601 Meacham Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76137; telephone 817–321– 7716. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES History On July 12, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace for the Mandan, ND, area, creating additional controlled airspace at Mandan Municipal Airport (78 FR 41890) Docket No. FAA–2013– 0275. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by amending Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures at Mandan Municipal Airport, Mandan, ND. Airspace added within a 30-mile radius of the final approach fix for the new RNAV (GPS) RWY 31 instrument approach procedure provides adequate controlled airspace for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Geographic coordinates are also to be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:59 Oct 01, 2013 Jkt 232001 under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends controlled airspace at Mandan Municipal Airport, Mandan, ND. § 71.1 Environmental Review 17 CFR Part 232 The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are adopting an updated EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II. The Filer Manual describes the technical formatting requirements for the preparation and submission of electronic filings through the EDGAR system.1 It also describes the requirements for filing using EDGARLink Online and the Online Forms/XML Web site. The revisions to the Filer Manual reflect changes within Volume II entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: ‘‘EDGAR Filing,’’ Version 25 (September 2013). The updated manual will be incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations. The Filer Manual contains all the technical specifications for filers to submit filings using the EDGAR system. Filers must comply with the applicable provisions of the Filer Manual in order to assure the timely acceptance and processing of filings made in electronic format.2 Filers may consult the Filer Manual in conjunction with our rules governing mandated electronic filing when preparing documents for electronic submission.3 The EDGAR system will be upgraded to Release 13.3 on September 23, 2013 and will introduce the following changes: Form D screens and instructions will be updated for Item 6 to replace the reference to ‘‘Rule 506’’ with ‘‘Rule 506(b)’’ and ‘‘Rule 506(c)’’, and to replace the reference to ‘‘Securities Act Section 4(5)’’ with ‘‘Securities Act Section 4(a)(5)’’, as per Release No. 33–9415.4 Additionally, Form D ‘‘Terms of Submission’’ in the Signature and Submission screen will be updated as per Release No. 33–9414.5 Submission form types 13F–HR and 13F–HR/A will be updated to allow a maximum of 16 digits in the Sole, Shared, and None columns in COLUMN 8 of the Information Table.

This incorporation by reference was approved by the Director of the Federal Register in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51. You may obtain paper copies of the updated Filer Manual at the following address: Public Reference Room, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 100 F Street, NE., Room 1543, Washington, DC 20549, on official business days between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. We will post electronic format copies on the Commission’s Web site; the address for the Filer Manual is https://www.sec.gov/ info/edgar.shtml. Since the Filer Manual and the corresponding rule changes relate solely to agency procedures or practice, publication for notice and comment is not required under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).6 It follows that the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act 7 do not apply. The effective date for the updated Filer Manual and the rule amendments is October 2, 2013. In accordance with the APA,8 we find that there is good cause to establish an effective date less than 30 days after publication of these rules. The EDGAR system upgrade to Release 13.3 is scheduled to become available on September 23, 2013. The Commission believes that establishing an effective date less than 30 days after publication of these rules is necessary to coordinate the effectiveness of the updated Filer Manual with the system upgrade.

Additionally, TTB modifies the boundary of the established 31,250acre Red Hills Lake County viticultural area in order to align a portion of its border with that of the proposed Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural area. The proposed viticultural areas and the established viticultural area lie entirely within the larger Clear Lake viticultural area and the multicounty North Coast viticultural area. TTB designates viticultural areas to allow vintners to better describe the origin of their wines and to allow consumers to better identify wines they may purchase.

Thornton, Regulations and Rulings Division, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, 1310 G Street NW., Box 12, Washington, DC 20005; phone 202–453–1039, ext. 175. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Background on Viticultural Areas TTB Authority Section 105(e) of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act (FAA Act), 27 U.S.C. 205(e), authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to prescribe regulations for the labeling of wine, distilled spirits, and malt beverages. The FAA Act provides that these regulations should, among other things, prohibit consumer deception and the use of misleading statements on labels, and ensure that labels provide the consumer with adequate information as to the identity and quality of the product. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) administers the FAA Act pursuant to section 1111(d) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, codified at 6 U.S.C. 531(d). The Secretary has delegated various authorities through Treasury Department Order 120–01 (Revised), dated January 21, 2003, to the TTB Administrator to perform the functions and duties in the administration and enforcement of this law. Part 4 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 4) allows the establishment of definitive viticultural areas and the use of their names as appellations of origin on wine labels and in wine advertisements. Part 9 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 9) sets forth standards for the preparation and submission of petitions for the establishment or modification of American viticultural areas and lists the approved American viticultural areas. Definition Section 4.25(e)(1)(i) of the TTB regulations (27 CFR 4.25(e)(1)(i)) defines a viticultural area for American wine as a delimited grape-growing region having distinguishing features as described in part 9 of the regulations and a name and a delineated boundary as established in part 9 of the regulations. These designations allow vintners and consumers to attribute a given quality, reputation, or other characteristic of a wine made from grapes grown in an area to its geographic origin. The establishment of viticultural areas allows vintners to describe more accurately the origin of their wines to consumers and helps consumers to identify wines they may purchase. Establishment of a viticultural area is neither an approval nor an endorsement by TTB of the wine produced in that area. Requirements Section 4.25(e)(2) of the TTB regulations outlines the procedure for proposing an American viticultural area E:\FR\FM\02OCR1.SGM 02OCR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are adopting an updated EDGAR Filer 
Manual, Volume II. The Filer Manual describes the technical formatting 
requirements for the preparation and submission of electronic filings 
through the EDGAR system.\1\ It also describes the requirements for 
filing using EDGARLink Online and the Online Forms/XML Web site.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ We originally adopted the Filer Manual on April 1, 1993, 
with an effective date of April 26, 1993. Release No. 33-6986 (April 
1, 1993) [58 FR 18638]. We implemented the most recent update to the 
Filer Manual on July 25, 2013. See Release No. 33-9433 (July 31, 
2013) [78 FR 46256].
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The revisions to the Filer Manual reflect changes within Volume II 
entitled EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: ``EDGAR Filing,'' Version 25 
(September 2013). The updated manual will be incorporated by reference 
into the Code of Federal Regulations.
    The Filer Manual contains all the technical specifications for 
filers to submit filings using the EDGAR system. Filers must comply 
with the applicable provisions of the Filer Manual in order to assure 
the timely acceptance and processing of filings made in electronic 
format.\2\ Filers may consult the Filer Manual in conjunction with our 
rules governing mandated electronic filing when preparing documents for 
electronic submission.\3\

    \2\ See Rule 301 of Regulation S-T (17 CFR 232.301).
    \3\ See Release No. 33-9433 in which we implemented EDGAR 
Release 13.2. For additional history of Filer Manual rules, please 
see the cites therein.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The EDGAR system will be upgraded to Release 13.3 on September 23, 
2013 and will introduce the following changes: Form D screens and 
instructions will be updated for Item 6 to replace the reference to 
``Rule 506'' with ``Rule 506(b)'' and ``Rule 506(c)'', and to replace 
the reference to ``Securities Act Section 4(5)'' with ``Securities Act 
Section 4(a)(5)'', as per Release No. 33-9415.\4\ Additionally, Form D 
``Terms of Submission'' in the Signature and Submission screen will be 
updated as per Release No. 33-9414.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Release No. 33-9415 (September 23, 2013) [78 FR 44771].
    \5\ See Release No. 33-9414 (September 23, 2013) [78 FR 44729].
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Submission form types 13F-HR and 13F-HR/A will be updated to allow 
a maximum of 16 digits in the Sole, Shared, and None columns in COLUMN 
8 of the Information Table.
    Along with the adoption of the Filer Manual, we are amending Rule 
301 of Regulation S-T to provide for the incorporation by reference 
into the Code of Federal Regulations of today's revisions. This 
incorporation by reference was approved by the Director of the Federal 
Register in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51.
    You may obtain paper copies of the updated Filer Manual at the 
following address: Public Reference Room, U.S. Securities and Exchange 
Commission, 100 F Street, NE., Room 1543, Washington, DC 20549, on

will post electronic format copies on the Commission's Web site; the 
address for the Filer Manual is https://www.sec.gov/info/edgar.shtml.
    Since the Filer Manual and the corresponding rule changes relate 
solely to agency procedures or practice, publication for notice and 
comment is not required under the Administrative Procedure Act 
(APA).\6\ It follows that the requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act \7\ do not apply.

    The effective date for the updated Filer Manual and the rule 
amendments is October 2, 2013. In accordance with the APA,\8\ we find 
that there is good cause to establish an effective date less than 30 
days after publication of these rules. The EDGAR system upgrade to 
Release 13.3 is scheduled to become available on September 23, 2013. 
The Commission believes that establishing an effective date less than 
30 days after publication of these rules is necessary to coordinate the 
effectiveness of the updated Filer Manual with the system upgrade.

Sec.  232.301  EDGAR Filer Manual.

    Filers must prepare electronic filings in the manner prescribed by 
the EDGAR Filer Manual, promulgated by the Commission, which sets out 
the technical formatting requirements for electronic submissions. The 
requirements for becoming an EDGAR Filer and updating company data are

Version 15 (May 2013). The requirements for filing on EDGAR are set 
forth in the updated EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume II: ``EDGAR Filing,'' 
Version 25 (September 2013). Additional provisions applicable to Form 
N-SAR filers are set forth in the EDGAR Filer Manual, Volume III: ``N-
SAR Supplement,'' Version 2 (August 2011). All of these provisions have 
been incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations, 
which action was approved by the Director of the Federal Register in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR Part 51. You must comply with 
these requirements in order for documents to be timely received and 
accepted. You can obtain paper copies of the EDGAR Filer Manual from 
the following address: Public Reference Room, U.S. Securities and 
Exchange Commission, 100 F Street NE., Room 1543, Washington, DC 20549,
