Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 162 / Friday, August 21, 2015 / Rules and Regulations and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where applicable, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d), good cause exists for making some SIAPs effective in less than 30 days. 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. It, therefore—-(1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ 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. For the same reason, the FAA certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Through the regulations, certain national defense and energy programs may be supported through the prioritization of contracts, or the allocation of resources. The priorities authority applies to the prioritization of contracts to support an approved national defense and/or energy program. Once a program is approved, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) (or another agency to which BIS has delegated authority) may place priority ratings on certain contracts. These ratings effectively expedite contractual performance to support the approved program. The Department of Defense (DOD) has entered into bilateral security of supply arrangements with certain countries that allow DOD to request priority delivery of DOD contracts, subcontracts or orders from companies in those countries. Persons in the United States who need assistance in obtaining priority delivery for such a contract, subcontract or order in those countries may request DOD to provide assistance in obtaining priority delivery. The DPAS Regulations list the countries with which DOD has entered into such arrangements to provide readers whose need for contract prioritization may extend beyond the United States with information about how to seek such prioritizations. Recently, DOD entered into a bilateral security of supply arrangement with Spain. Accordingly, this rule adds Spain E:\FR\FM\21AUR1.SGM 21AUR1 50762 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 162 / Friday, August 21, 2015 / Rules and Regulations rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with RULES to the list of countries with which DOD has such arrangements. The list is informational only and does not affect any right, duty or prohibition that applies to any person under the DPAS Regulations. DOD would be able to request priority delivery in countries with which it has security of supply arrangements and persons in the United States would be able to request assistance from DOD in obtaining priority delivery even if the list did not appear in the DPAS Regulations. With the addition of Spain, the list will read: Australia, Finland, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. 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). This rule does not impose any regulatory burden on the public and is consistent with the goals of Executive Order 13563. This rule has been determined not to be 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.), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget control number.

Persons in the United States who need such prioritization may request DOD assistance to obtain it.

DOD may seek such prioritization and persons in the United States may request DOD assistance regardless whether or not the countries with which DOD has entered into security of supply arrangements are identified in the DPAS Regulations. Listing these countries in the DPAS Regulations does not affect any right, duty or prohibition that applies to any person under those regulations. Because these revisions are not substantive changes, it is unnecessary to provide notice and opportunity for public comment. Because neither the Administrative Procedure Act nor any other law requires that notice and an opportunity for public comment be given for this rule, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable. In addition, the 30-day delay in effectiveness otherwise required by 5 U.S.C. 553(d) is not applicable because this rule is not a substantive rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Defense Priorities and Allocations System (DPAS) Regulations 
implement priorities and allocations authority of the Defense 
Production Act of 1950, as amended. Through the regulations, certain 
national defense and energy programs may be supported through the 
prioritization of contracts, or the allocation of resources. The 
priorities authority applies to the prioritization of contracts to 
support an approved national defense and/or energy program. Once a 
program is approved, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) (or 
another agency to which BIS has delegated authority) may place priority 
ratings on certain contracts. These ratings effectively expedite 
contractual performance to support the approved program.
    The Department of Defense (DOD) has entered into bilateral security 
of supply arrangements with certain countries that allow DOD to request 
priority delivery of DOD contracts, subcontracts or orders from 
companies in those countries. Persons in the United States who need 
assistance in obtaining priority delivery for such a contract, 
subcontract or order in those countries may request DOD to provide 
assistance in obtaining priority delivery. The DPAS Regulations list 
the countries with which DOD has entered into such arrangements to 
provide readers whose need for contract prioritization may extend 
beyond the United States with information about how to seek such 
prioritizations. Recently, DOD entered into a bilateral security of 
supply arrangement with Spain. Accordingly, this rule adds Spain

[[Page 50762]]

to the list of countries with which DOD has such arrangements. The list 
is informational only and does not affect any right, duty or 
prohibition that applies to any person under the DPAS Regulations. DOD 
would be able to request priority delivery in countries with which it 
has security of supply arrangements and persons in the United States 
would be able to request assistance from DOD in obtaining priority 
delivery even if the list did not appear in the DPAS Regulations.
    With the addition of Spain, the list will read: Australia, Finland, 
Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

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). This rule 
does not impose any regulatory burden on the public and is consistent 
with the goals of Executive Order 13563. This rule has been determined 
not to be 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.), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid 
Office of Management and Budget control number. This rule does not 
involve a collection of information that is subject to the Paperwork 
Reduction Act.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.
    4. BIS finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior 
notice of proposed rulemaking and the opportunity for public comment 
because it is unnecessary. This rule merely updates the list of 
countries with which the DOD has entered into security of supply 
arrangements and thus may seek prioritization of contracts in those 
countries. Persons in the United States who need such prioritization 
may request DOD assistance to obtain it. The lists are in the DPAS 
regulations to inform persons whose need for contract prioritization 
may extend beyond the United States of where they may be able to obtain 
assistance. DOD may seek such prioritization and persons in the United 
States may request DOD assistance regardless whether or not the 
countries with which DOD has entered into security of supply 
arrangements are identified in the DPAS Regulations. Listing these 
countries in the DPAS Regulations does not affect any right, duty or 
prohibition that applies to any person under those regulations. Because 
these revisions are not substantive changes, it is unnecessary to 
provide notice and opportunity for public comment. Because neither the 
Administrative Procedure Act nor any other law requires that notice and 
an opportunity for public comment be given for this rule, the 
analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 
et seq.) are not applicable.
    In addition, the 30-day delay in effectiveness otherwise required 
by 5 U.S.C. 553(d) is not applicable because this rule is not a 
substantive rule.
