ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: EPA is removing significant new use rules (SNURs) promulgated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for chemical substances identified as alkanes, C21–34— branched and linear, chloro; alkanes, C22–30—branched and linear, chloro; and alkanes, C24–28, chloro, which were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMNs) P–12–539, P–13–107, and P–13–109, respectively. EPA published these SNURs using direct final rulemaking procedures. EPA received a notice of intent to submit adverse comments on the rules. Therefore, the Agency is removing these SNURs, as required under the expedited SNUR rulemaking process. EPA intends to publish in the near future proposed SNURs for these three chemical substances under separate notice and comment procedures. DATES: This final rule is effective November 5, 2013.

In the Federal Register of August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48051), EPA issued several direct final SNURs, including SNURs for the chemical substances that are the subject of this removal. These direct final rules were issued pursuant to the procedures in 40 CFR part 721, subpart D. In accordance with § 721.160(c)(3)(ii), EPA is removing the rules issued for chemical substances identified as alkanes, C21–34—branched and linear, chloro; alkanes, C22–30—branched and linear, chloro; and alkanes, C24–28, chloro, which were the subject of PMNs P–12–539, P–13–107, and P–13–109, respectively, because the Agency received a notice of intent to submit adverse comments. EPA intends to publish proposed SNURs for these chemical substances under separate notice and comment procedures.

The statutory and executive order review requirements applicable to the direct final rule were discussed in the Federal Register of August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48051). Those review requirements do not apply to this action because it is a removal and does not contain any new or amended requirements. IV.

ACTION: Direct final rule. AGENCY: On April 19, 2013, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA), submitted a request to EPA to make a determination under the Clean Air Act (CAA) that the Bellefontaine nonattainment area has attained the 2008 lead (Pb) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS or standard). In this action, EPA is determining that the Bellefontaine nonattainment area (hereafter also referred to as the ‘‘Bellefontaine area’’ or ‘‘area’’) has attained the 2008 Pb NAAQS. This determination of attainment is based upon complete, quality-assured and certified ambient air monitoring data for the 2010–2012 design period showing that the area has monitored attainment of the 2008 Pb NAAQS. Additionally, as a result of this determination, EPA is suspending the requirements for the area to submit an attainment demonstration, together with reasonably wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:54 Nov 04, 2013 Jkt 232001 available control measures (RACM), a reasonable further progress (RFP) plan, and contingency measures for failure to meet RFP and attainment deadlines for as long as the area continues to attain the 2008 Pb NAAQS. DATES: This direct final rule will be effective January 6, 2014, unless EPA receives adverse comments by December 5, 2013. If adverse comments are received, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule will not take effect.

Significant New Use Rules on Certain Chemical Substances; Removal 
of Significant New Use Rules

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is removing significant new use rules (SNURs) promulgated 
under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for chemical substances 
identified as alkanes, C21-34--branched and linear, chloro; alkanes, 
C22-30--branched and linear, chloro; and alkanes, C24-28, chloro, which 
were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMNs) P-12-539, P-13-107, 
and P-13-109, respectively. EPA published these SNURs using direct 
final rulemaking procedures. EPA received a notice of intent to submit 
adverse comments on the rules. Therefore, the Agency is removing these 
SNURs, as required under the expedited SNUR rulemaking process. EPA 
intends to publish in the near future proposed SNURs for these three 
chemical substances under separate notice and comment procedures.

DATES: This final rule is effective November 5, 2013.

ADDRESSES: The docket for this action, identified by docket 
identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2013-0399, is available at 
http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pollution Prevention and 
Toxics Docket (OPPT Docket), Environmental Protection Agency Docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Does this action apply to me?

    A list of potentially affected entities is provided in the Federal 
Register of August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48051) (FRL-9393-4). If you have 
questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular 
entity, consult the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What rules are being removed?

    In the Federal Register of August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48051), EPA issued 
several direct final SNURs, including SNURs for the chemical substances 
that are the subject of this removal. These direct final rules were 
issued pursuant to the procedures in 40 CFR part 721, subpart D. In 
accordance with Sec.  721.160(c)(3)(ii), EPA is removing the rules 
issued for chemical substances identified as alkanes, C21-34--branched 
and linear, chloro; alkanes, C22-30--branched and linear, chloro; and 
alkanes, C24-28, chloro, which were the subject of PMNs P-12-539, P-13-
107, and P-13-109, respectively, because the Agency received a notice 
of intent to submit adverse comments. EPA intends to publish proposed 
SNURs for these chemical substances under separate notice and comment 
procedures.
    For further information regarding EPA's expedited process for 
issuing SNURs, interested parties are directed to 40 CFR part 721, 
subpart D, and the Federal Register of July 27, 1989 (54 FR 31314). The 
record for the direct final SNUR for the chemical substances that are 
being removed was established at EPA-HQ-OPPT-2013-0399. That record 
includes information considered by the Agency in developing this rule 
and the notice of intent to submit adverse comments.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This final rule revokes or eliminates an existing regulatory 
requirement and does not contain any new or amended requirements. As 
such, the Agency has determined that this removal will not have any 
adverse impacts, economic or otherwise. The statutory and executive 
order review requirements applicable to the direct final rule were 
discussed in the Federal Register of August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48051). 
Those review requirements do not apply to this action because it is a 
removal and does not contain any new or amended requirements.

IV. Congressional Review Act (CRA)

    Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), 
EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required 
information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and 
the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of 
the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' 
as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
