Download as PDF 62466 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 200 / Friday, October 16, 2015 / Rules and Regulations subject to OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), nor does it require any special considerations under Executive Order 12898, entitled ‘‘Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations’’ (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). Since tolerances and exemptions that are established on the basis of a petition under FFDCA section 408(d), such as the tolerance in this final rule, do not require the issuance of a proposed rule, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), do not apply. This action directly regulates growers, food processors, food handlers, and food retailers, not States or tribes, nor does this action alter the relationships or distribution of power and responsibilities established by Congress in the preemption provisions of FFDCA section 408(n)(4). As such, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States or tribal governments, on the relationship between the national government and the States or tribal governments, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government or between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Thus, the Agency has determined that Executive Order 13132, entitled ‘‘Federalism’’ (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) and Executive Order 13175, entitled ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’ (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) do not apply to this action. In addition, this action does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.). This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). VIII. Congressional Review Act 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).

Regulatory History We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A), the Coast Guard finds that this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements, because these changes involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the Coast Guard finds that notice and comment procedures are unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments, and that these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register. III. Basis and Purpose On the 1st of October each year, the printed editions of Titles 46 and 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) are re-codified. This rule, which becomes effective October 16, 2015, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 46. There are no technical or editorial corrections for Title 49 this year. This rule does not create or change any substantive requirements. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES IV. Discussion of the Rule Each year, the Coast Guard issues technical, organizational, and conforming amendments to existing regulations in Titles 46 and 49 of the CFR. These annual ‘‘technical amendments’’ provide the public with more accurate and current regulatory information, but do not change the impact on the public of any Coast Guard regulations. This rule makes no changes to Title 49. This rule makes changes in the following sections of Title 46 in the CFR: Section 2.75–25(c)(3): Change ‘‘in the Federal Register’’ to ‘‘on the Coast Guard’s Maritime Information eXchange Web site at http://cgmix.uscg.mil/ equipment’’ to reflect the accurate location where the Coast Guard publishes the approval and listing of recognized laboratories. The change updates an outdated location. Section 5.903(b): Change the mailing address to reflect the U.S. Coast Guard Office of Investigations and Analysis as the office for submitting applications. Section 11.329(e): Remove the table in § 11.329(e) that is titled ‘‘Table 1 to § 11.327(d).’’).’’ The same Table 1 correctly appears in § 11.327(d), but it has been erroneously duplicated in VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Oct 15, 2015 Jkt 238001 § 11.329(e). Table 1 to § 11.329(e) remains unchanged. Sections 107.111, 114.400(b), 125.160, 159.005–13(a)(4), 175.400: Change the reference to the location where the Coast Guard publishes a listing of current and formerly approved equipment and materials. The change updates an outdated location. Section 113.25–9(a): Change the term ‘‘windless’’ to ‘‘windlass.’’ The change corrects a typographical error. Sections 117.68(a)(1), 117.68(b)(1), 117.68(c)(2)(ii), 117.68(c)(2)(iii), 117.70(b)(1), 117.70(d)(1), 117.71(c), 180.68(a)(1), 180.68(c)(2)(ii), 180.68(c)(2)(iii), 180.70(b)(1), 180.70(d)(1), 180.71(c), 180.75(a): Add a reference to the relevant approval standard for equipment carried on vessels subject to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as an option for compliance. The SOLAS standards have already routinely been approved by the Coast Guard as an ‘‘other standard specified by the Commandant.’’ The change will provide clarity for the regulated public, eliminating duplicative approval requests. Section 162.060–10(b)(1): Change ‘‘manufacturer’’ to ‘‘manufacturer or independent laboratory’’ to reflect the fact that the independent laboratory is typically the entity that submits requests for approval of alternatives as equivalent to the regulatory requirements. Section 162.060–42(a)(2): Change the reference from ‘‘requirements in paragraph (b) of this section’’ to ‘‘requirements in paragraph (a)(1) of this section.’’ Section 162.060–42(a)(2) discusses the ability of an independent laboratory to reject a manufacturer’s proposed ballast water management system if the system does not meet the requirements listed in another paragraph in that section. Paragraph (b) is an incorrect reference paragraph because it does not list requirements for the manufacturer’s system; instead, it is a requirement for the independent laboratory. Paragraph (a)(1) is the correct reference paragraph because it lists the relevant requirements. The change corrects a typographical error. V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes or E.O.s. A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess the costs and PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 62467 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 not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. Because this rule involves nonsubstantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any additional costs on the public. The benefit of the nonsubstantive changes is increased clarity of regulations. B. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), rules exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on small entities. Nevertheless, we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-forprofit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. There is no cost to this final rule, and we do not expect it will have an impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule are technical and nonsubstantive. It will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. C. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please consult Mr. Paul Crissy by phone at 202–372–1093 or via email at Paul.H.Crissy@uscg.mil. The E:\FR\FM\16OCR1.SGM 16OCR1 62468 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 200 / Friday, October 16, 2015 / Rules and Regulations Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1– 888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247). D. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). E. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 13132 (‘‘Federalism’’) if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any 1 year. Though this final rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. G. Taking of Private Property This final rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under E.O. 12630 (‘‘Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights’’). H. Civil Justice Reform This final rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988 (‘‘Civil Justice Reform’’), to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Oct 15, 2015 Jkt 238001 I. Protection of Children We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13045 (‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’). This final rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. J. Indian Tribal Governments This final rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 13175 (‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’), because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. K. Energy Effects We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13211 (‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’). We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under E.O. 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under E.O. 13211. Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2 and figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(a) of the Instruction. This final rule involves amendments to regulations that are editorial or procedural. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket for this final rule where indicated under ADDRESSES.

Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Communications equipment, Fire prevention, Vessels. M.

II. Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. 
Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A), the Coast Guard finds that this rule is 
exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements, because these 
changes involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. 
In addition, the Coast Guard finds that notice and comment procedures 
are unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists only of 
corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments, 
and that these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. 
Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same 
reasons, good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon 
publication in the Federal Register.

III. Basis and Purpose

    On the 1st of October each year, the printed editions of Titles 46 
and 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) are re-codified. This 
rule, which becomes effective October 16, 2015, makes technical and 
editorial corrections throughout Title 46. There are no technical or 
editorial corrections for Title 49 this year. This rule does not create 
or change any substantive requirements.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    Each year, the Coast Guard issues technical, organizational, and 
conforming amendments to existing regulations in Titles 46 and 49 of 
the CFR. These annual ``technical amendments'' provide the public with 
more accurate and current regulatory information, but do not change the 
impact on the public of any Coast Guard regulations. This rule makes no 
changes to Title 49.
    This rule makes changes in the following sections of Title 46 in 
the CFR:
    Section 2.75-25(c)(3): Change ``in the Federal Register'' to ``on 
the Coast Guard's Maritime Information eXchange Web site at http://cgmix.uscg.mil/equipment'' to reflect the accurate location where the 
Coast Guard publishes the approval and listing of recognized 
laboratories. The change updates an outdated location.
    Section 5.903(b): Change the mailing address to reflect the U.S. 
Coast Guard Office of Investigations and Analysis as the office for 
submitting applications.
    Section 11.329(e): Remove the table in Sec.  11.329(e) that is 
titled ``Table 1 to Sec.  11.327(d).'').'' The same Table 1 correctly 
appears in Sec.  11.327(d), but it has been erroneously duplicated in 
Sec.  11.329(e). Table 1 to Sec.  11.329(e) remains unchanged.
    Sections 107.111, 114.400(b), 125.160, 159.005-13(a)(4), 175.400: 
Change the reference to the location where the Coast Guard publishes a 
listing of current and formerly approved equipment and materials. The 
change updates an outdated location.
    Section 113.25-9(a): Change the term ``windless'' to ``windlass.'' 
The change corrects a typographical error.
    Sections 117.68(a)(1), 117.68(b)(1), 117.68(c)(2)(ii), 
117.68(c)(2)(iii), 117.70(b)(1), 117.70(d)(1), 117.71(c), 180.68(a)(1), 
180.68(c)(2)(ii), 180.68(c)(2)(iii), 180.70(b)(1), 180.70(d)(1), 
180.71(c), 180.75(a): Add a reference to the relevant approval standard 
for equipment carried on vessels subject to the International 
Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as an option 
for compliance. The SOLAS standards have already routinely been 
approved by the Coast Guard as an ``other standard specified by the 
Commandant.'' The change will provide clarity for the regulated public, 
eliminating duplicative approval requests.
    Section 162.060-10(b)(1): Change ``manufacturer'' to ``manufacturer 
or independent laboratory'' to reflect the fact that the independent 
laboratory is typically the entity that submits requests for approval 
of alternatives as equivalent to the regulatory requirements.
    Section 162.060-42(a)(2): Change the reference from ``requirements 
in paragraph (b) of this section'' to ``requirements in paragraph 
(a)(1) of this section.'' Section 162.060-42(a)(2) discusses the 
ability of an independent laboratory to reject a manufacturer's 
proposed ballast water management system if the system does not meet 
the requirements listed in another paragraph in that section. Paragraph 
(b) is an incorrect reference paragraph because it does not list 
requirements for the manufacturer's system; instead, it is a 
requirement for the independent laboratory. Paragraph (a)(1) is the 
correct reference paragraph because it lists the relevant requirements. 
The change corrects a typographical error.

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on these statutes or E.O.s.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess the 
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 not been designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. 
Accordingly, the rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management 
and Budget. Because this rule involves non-substantive changes and 
internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any 
additional costs on the public. The benefit of the non-substantive 
changes is increased clarity of regulations.

B. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), rules 
exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative 
Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on 
small entities. Nevertheless, we have considered whether this rule 
would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities. The term ``small entities'' comprises small businesses, 
not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated 
and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions 
with populations of less than 50,000.
    There is no cost to this final rule, and we do not expect it will 
have an impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule 
are technical and non-substantive. It will have no substantive effect 
on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast 
Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please consult Mr. Paul Crissy by phone at 202-
372-1093 or via email at Paul.H.Crissy@uscg.mil. The

[[Page 62468]]

Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or 
complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-888-734-3247).

D. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

E. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 13132 
(``Federalism'') if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, 
on the relationship between the national government and the States, or 
on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various 
levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that order and 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any 1 year. Though this final rule will not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

    This final rule will not cause a taking of private property or 
otherwise have taking implications under E.O. 12630 (``Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights'').

H. Civil Justice Reform

    This final rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 
3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988 (``Civil Justice Reform''), to minimize 
litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13045 (``Protection of 
Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks''). This 
final rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create 
an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

    This final rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 13175 
(``Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments''), 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

K. Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13211 (``Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use''). We have determined that it is not a 
``significant energy action'' under that order because it is not a 
``significant regulatory action'' under E.O. 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of OMB's Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under E.O. 13211.

L. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their 
regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the 
OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be 
inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary 
consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of 
materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling 
procedures; and related management systems practices) that are 
developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did 
not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

M. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded that this 
action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or 
cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This 
rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2 and figure 2-1, 
paragraph (34)(a) of the Instruction. This final rule involves 
amendments to regulations that are editorial or procedural. An 
environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket for this final rule where 
indicated under ADDRESSES.
