VerDate Mar<15>2010 DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Jkt 232001 This final rule makes technical amendments and corrects typographical errors in ATF regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Many of the technical changes are being made to reflect changes in nomenclature resulting from the transfer of ATF to the Department of Justice from the Department of the Treasury pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. The changes are designed to provide clarity and enhance uniformity throughout these regulations. DATES: This rule is effective August 11, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shermaine Kenner, Office of Regulatory Affairs, Enforcement Programs and Services, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, U.S. Department of Justice, 99 New York Avenue NE., Washington, DC 20226; telephone: (202) 648–7070 (this is not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) administers regulations published in title 27, chapter II, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). ATF identified several technical amendments that are needed to provide clarity and uniformity to 27 CFR regulations. Rather than make substantive changes to the regulations, these amendments generally focus on improving the clarity and accuracy of title 27, chapter II. Many of the technical changes reflect changes in nomenclature resulting from the transfer of ATF to the Department of Justice from the Department of the Treasury pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. In addition, some changes are being made to reflect changes in the assignment of responsibility within ATF. The following sections are being amended to reflect the current name of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Firearms, and Explosives in the Department of Justice: §§ 447.11, 447.32, 478.11, 478.76, 478.78, 479.11, 479.22, 555.78, 555.104, 646.143. The following sections are being amended to reflect current contact information for ATF’s Distribution Center: §§ 447.35, 447.58, 478.21, 478.103, 479.21, 555.21. The following sections defining ‘‘Customs Officer’’ are being amended to remove all references to the ‘‘Customs Service’’ and ‘‘Secretary of the Treasury’’ and replace with ‘‘Any officer of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, any commissioned, warrant, or petty officer of the Coast Guard, or any agent or other person authorized by law to perform the duties of a customs officer’’, to reflect the current name of the Customs Service and that it is no longer under the Department of the Treasury: §§ 478.11, 479.11, 555.11. The following sections are being amended to remove extra spaces: §§ 478.56, 478.76. The following sections are being amended to reflect the correct form numbers: §§ 478.72, 478.73, 478.74, 478.126.

The following sections are being amended to replace ‘‘regional director (compliance)’’ with the correct title, ‘‘Chief, National Firearms Act Branch’’: §§ 479.37, 479.38, 479.46, 479.47, 479.50, 479.172. With the elimination of the position of regional director (compliance), the duties enumerated in these sections are being assigned to the Chief, National Firearms Act Branch. Section 479.34 is being amended to remove ‘‘(12–93 edition)’’, a reference to an obsolete edition of a form. Section 479.37 is being amended to remove ‘‘Center’’ as the word does not make sense in the context of the sentence. Section 479.84 is being amended to replace ‘‘regional director (compliance)’’ with the correct title, ‘‘Special Agent in Charge’’. With the elimination of the E:\FR\FM\11AUR1.SGM 11AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 154 / Monday, August 11, 2014 / Rules and Regulations position of regional director (compliance), the duties enumerated in this section are being assigned to the Special Agent in Charge.

With the elimination of the position of regional director (compliance), the duties enumerated in these subsections are being assigned to the Chief, Explosives Industry Programs Branch.

Section 555.141 is being amended to replace ‘‘Public Safety Branch’’ with the current title ‘‘Explosives Industry Programs Branch’’. How This Document Complies With the Federal Administrative Requirements for Rulemaking A. Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563 This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with Executive Order 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ section 1(b), The Principles of Regulation, and Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,’’ section 1, General Principles of Regulation. This rule is limited to agency organization, management, or personnel matters as described by Executive Order 12866, section 3(d)(3) and, therefore, is not a ‘‘regulation’’ or ‘‘rule’’ as defined by that Executive Order. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Executive Order 13132 This final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with section 6 of Executive Order 13132, ‘‘Federalism,’’ the Attorney General has determined that this regulation does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:09 Aug 08, 2014 Jkt 232001 46691 C. Executive Order 12988 This regulation meets the applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, ‘‘Civil Justice Reform.’’ significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531–1535. D. Administrative Procedure Act The revisions to the regulations in this final rule are purely matters of agency organization, procedure, and practice that will not affect individual rights and obligations. As such, this rule is exempt from the usual requirements of prior notice and comment and a 30day delay in the effective date. See 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2), (b)(3)(A), and (d)(3). Moreover, the Department finds good cause for exempting the rule from those requirements. Because this final rule makes technical corrections to improve the clarity of the regulations, the Department finds it unnecessary to publish this rule for public notice and comment. Similarly, because delaying the effective date of this rule would serve no purpose, the Department also finds good cause to make this rule effective upon publication. H. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 E. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Attorney General, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), has reviewed this rule and, by approving it, certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it pertains to personnel and administrative matters affecting the Department. Further, a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required for this final rule because the Department was not required to publish a general notice of proposed rulemaking for this matter. F. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 This rule is not a major rule as defined by section 251 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 804. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based enterprises to compete with foreignbased enterprises in domestic and export markets. G. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year, and it will not PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 This final rule does not impose any new reporting or recordkeeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521. I. Congressional Review Act This action pertains to agency organization, procedure, or practice, and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties and, accordingly, is not a ‘‘rule’’ as that term is used by the Congressional Review Act (Subtitle E of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996). See 5 U.S.C. 804(3). Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does not apply.

Technical Amendments to Regulations

AGENCY: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), 
Department of Justice.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This final rule makes technical amendments and corrects 
typographical errors in ATF regulations in the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR). Many of the technical changes are being made to 
reflect changes in nomenclature resulting from the transfer of ATF to 
the Department of Justice from the Department of the Treasury pursuant 
to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. The changes are designed to 
provide clarity and enhance uniformity throughout these regulations.

DATES: This rule is effective August 11, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shermaine Kenner, Office of Regulatory 
Affairs, Enforcement Programs and Services, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, 
Firearms, and Explosives, U.S. Department of Justice, 99 New York 
Avenue NE., Washington, DC 20226; telephone: (202) 648-7070 (this is 
not a toll-free number).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) 
administers regulations published in title 27, chapter II, Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR). ATF identified several technical amendments 
that are needed to provide clarity and uniformity to 27 CFR 
regulations.
    Rather than make substantive changes to the regulations, these 
amendments generally focus on improving the clarity and accuracy of 
title 27, chapter II. Many of the technical changes reflect changes in 
nomenclature resulting from the transfer of ATF to the Department of 
Justice from the Department of the Treasury pursuant to the Homeland 
Security Act of 2002. In addition, some changes are being made to 
reflect changes in the assignment of responsibility within ATF.
    The following sections are being amended to reflect the current 
name of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in the 
Department of Justice: Sec. Sec.  447.11, 447.32, 478.11, 478.76, 
478.78, 479.11, 479.22, 555.78, 555.104, 646.143.
    The following sections are being amended to reflect current contact 
information for ATF's Distribution Center: Sec. Sec.  447.35, 447.58, 
478.21, 478.103, 479.21, 555.21.
    The following sections defining ``Customs Officer'' are being 
amended to remove all references to the ``Customs Service'' and 
``Secretary of the Treasury'' and replace with ``Any officer of U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection, any commissioned, warrant, or petty 
officer of the Coast Guard, or any agent or other person authorized by 
law to perform the duties of a customs officer'', to reflect the 
current name of the Customs Service and that it is no longer under the 
Department of the Treasury: Sec. Sec.  478.11, 479.11, 555.11.
    The following sections are being amended to remove extra spaces: 
Sec. Sec.  478.56, 478.76.
    The following sections are being amended to reflect the correct 
form numbers: Sec. Sec.  478.72, 478.73, 478.74, 478.126.
    Section 478.76 is being amended to replace ``Assistant Chief 
Counsel'' with the correct title, ``Chief Counsel''.
    The following sections are being amended to replace ``regional 
director (compliance)'' with the current title, ``Director, Industry 
Operations'': Sec. Sec.  479.11, 479.26, 555.11, 555.22, 555.25, 
555.49, 555.63, 555.71, 555.72, 555.73, 555.74, 555.75, 555.76, 555.78, 
555.79, 555.80, 555.122(a)(4), 555.123(a)(4), 555.124(a)(4), 
555.125(b)(1)(iv), 555.142, 555.201. With the elimination of the 
position of regional director (compliance), the duties enumerated in 
these sections are being assigned to the Director, Industry Operations.
    The following sections are being amended to replace ``regional 
director (compliance)'' with the correct title, ``Chief, National 
Firearms Act Branch'': Sec. Sec.  479.37, 479.38, 479.46, 479.47, 
479.50, 479.172. With the elimination of the position of regional 
director (compliance), the duties enumerated in these sections are 
being assigned to the Chief, National Firearms Act Branch.
    Section 479.34 is being amended to remove ``(12-93 edition)'', a 
reference to an obsolete edition of a form.
    Section 479.37 is being amended to remove ``Center'' as the word 
does not make sense in the context of the sentence.
    Section 479.84 is being amended to replace ``regional director 
(compliance)'' with the correct title, ``Special Agent in Charge''. 
With the elimination of the

[[Page 46691]]

position of regional director (compliance), the duties enumerated in 
this section are being assigned to the Special Agent in Charge.
    The following sections are being amended to replace ``Chief, 
Firearms and Explosives Licensing Center'' with the current title, 
``Chief, Federal Explosives Licensing Center'': Sec. Sec.  555.45, 
555.46, 555.49, 555.50, 555.54, 555.56, 555.57, 555.59, 555.60, 555.61, 
555.104, 555.128.
    The following sections are being amended to replace ``regional 
director (compliance)'' with the correct title, ``Chief, Explosives 
Industry Programs Branch'': Sec. Sec.  555.122(d), 555.123(e), 
555.124(e), 555.125(b)(7). With the elimination of the position of 
regional director (compliance), the duties enumerated in these 
subsections are being assigned to the Chief, Explosives Industry 
Programs Branch.
    Section 555.126 is being amended to delete duplicative words ``of 
the'' in the term ``identity of the of the holder''.
    Section 555.141 is being amended to replace ``Public Safety 
Branch'' with the current title ``Explosives Industry Programs 
Branch''.

How This Document Complies With the Federal Administrative Requirements 
for Rulemaking

A. Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563

    This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with 
Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' section 
1(b), The Principles of Regulation, and Executive Order 13563, 
``Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,'' section 1, General 
Principles of Regulation. This rule is limited to agency organization, 
management, or personnel matters as described by Executive Order 12866, 
section 3(d)(3) and, therefore, is not a ``regulation'' or ``rule'' as 
defined by that Executive Order.

B. Executive Order 13132

    This final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between the Federal Government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with section 6 
of Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism,'' the Attorney General has 
determined that this regulation does not have sufficient federalism 
implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact 
statement.

C. Executive Order 12988

    This regulation meets the applicable standards set forth in 
sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, ``Civil Justice 
Reform.''

D. Administrative Procedure Act

    The revisions to the regulations in this final rule are purely 
matters of agency organization, procedure, and practice that will not 
affect individual rights and obligations. As such, this rule is exempt 
from the usual requirements of prior notice and comment and a 30-day 
delay in the effective date. See 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2), (b)(3)(A), and 
(d)(3). Moreover, the Department finds good cause for exempting the 
rule from those requirements. Because this final rule makes technical 
corrections to improve the clarity of the regulations, the Department 
finds it unnecessary to publish this rule for public notice and 
comment. Similarly, because delaying the effective date of this rule 
would serve no purpose, the Department also finds good cause to make 
this rule effective upon publication.

E. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Attorney General, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), has reviewed this rule and, by approving it, 
certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities because it pertains to personnel 
and administrative matters affecting the Department. Further, a 
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required for this final rule 
because the Department was not required to publish a general notice of 
proposed rulemaking for this matter.

F. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996

    This rule is not a major rule as defined by section 251 of the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C. 
804. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of 
$100 million or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or 
significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, 
productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based 
enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises in domestic and 
export markets.

G. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and 
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 
million or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed 
necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 
1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531-1535.

H. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    This final rule does not impose any new reporting or recordkeeping 
requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521.

I. Congressional Review Act

    This action pertains to agency organization, procedure, or 
practice, and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations 
of non-agency parties and, accordingly, is not a ``rule'' as that term 
is used by the Congressional Review Act (Subtitle E of the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996). See 5 U.S.C. 
804(3). Therefore, the reporting requirement of 5 U.S.C. 801 does not 
apply.
