DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On January 15, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a final rule in the Federal Register that amended the energy conservation standards for residential boilers (81 FR 2319). Due to a drafting error, that document recited an ambiguous/ erroneous date for compliance with the amended standards at one place in the final rule’s preamble. However, the compliance date was correctly provided in the DATES section, as well as the regulatory text. Nevertheless, in order to prevent any confusion, this final rule corrects this error.

II. Public Comments on the Companion Proposed Rule In the direct final rule, the NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become effective on February 1, 2016.

In July 2015, NCUA hired an OMWI Director and, accordingly, is transferring the EEO Director designation to the OMWI Director. In implementing federal antidiscrimination laws, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission requires each executive agency to designate an EEO Director who ‘‘shall be under the immediate supervision of the agency head.’’ 4 This regulatory requirement does not permit further delegation. Accordingly, assigning the EEO Director designation to the OMWI Director necessitates a change in the OMWI Director’s direct reporting line. In addition, other agencies that were required to establish an OMWI office currently have the OMWI Director reporting directly to the agency’s top official.5 For the reasons discussed above, this final rule amends the description of OMWI to reflect the transfer of the designation of Director of EEO to the OMWI Director. This rule change also amends the description of OMWI to reflect that the OMWI Director reports directly to the NCUA Chairman. Office of the Executive Director This final rule amends the description of the Office of the Executive Director to delete the statement that the Executive Director serves as the Director of EEO because this designation has transferred to the Director of OMWI. In addition, the list of offices in the description that are coordinated by the Executive Director is outdated. This final rule amends the description to update the list of offices currently coordinated by the Executive Director. This rule change reflects all current offices within NCUA’s organizational structure. To effect these changes, the Board is making two conforming technical amendments to part 790, as described in section II. II.

Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Energy 
Conservation Standards for Residential Boilers; Correction

Energy.

ACTION: Final rule; technical correction.

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

SUMMARY: On January 15, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 
published a final rule in the Federal Register that amended the energy 
conservation standards for residential boilers (81 FR 2319). Due to a 
drafting error, that document recited an ambiguous/erroneous date for 
compliance with the amended standards at one place in the final rule's 
preamble. However, the compliance date was correctly provided in the 
DATES section, as well as the regulatory text. Nevertheless, in order 
to prevent any confusion, this final rule corrects this error.

DATES: Effective Date: January 27, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    On January 15, 2016, DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and 
Renewable Energy published a final rule in the Federal Register titled, 
``Energy Conservation Standards for Residential Boilers'' (hereafter 
referred to as the ``January 2016 final rule''). 81 FR 2319. Since the 
publication of that final rule, it has come to DOE's attention that, 
due to a technical oversight, a certain part of the January 2016 final 
rule incorrectly recites the compliance date for the amended standards 
for residential boilers. Specifically in the third column of page 2321, 
the final rule states, ``These standards apply to all residential 
boilers listed in Table I.1 and Table I.2 and manufactured in, or 
imported into,

[[Page 4575]]

the United States starting on the date five years after January 15, 
2021.'' As properly reflected in the DATES section and the regulatory 
text, the compliance date is January 15, 2021. The erroneous language 
conflated ``the date five years after publication of the final rule'' 
with an instruction to the Federal Register to insert a date five years 
after date of publication of the final rule. This final rule corrects 
this error.

II. Need for Correction

    As published, the compliance date reported on page 2321 of the 
January 15, 2016 final rule could potentially result in confusion 
regarding the date upon which compliance with the amended energy 
conservation standards for residential boilers is required. Because 
this final rule would simply correct the erroneous compliance date in 
this one location, thereby making it consistent with the proper 
compliance date reported at other places in the final rule, the change 
addressed in this document is technical in nature.

Correction

    In final rule FR Doc. 2016-00025, appearing on page 2319 in the 
issue of Friday, January 15, 2016, the following correction should be 
made:
    On page 2321, third column, second paragraph, the last sentence is 
corrected to read as follows:
    These standards apply to all residential boilers listed in Table 
I.1 and Table I.2 and manufactured in, or imported into, the United 
States starting on January 15, 2021.

    Issued in Washington, DC on January 21, 2016.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and 
Renewable Energy.
