In subpart J, add § 864.9165 to read as follows: (a) Identification. Blood establishment computer software (BECS) and BECS accessories are devices used in the manufacture of blood and blood components to assist in the prevention of disease in humans by identifying ineligible donors, by preventing the release of unsuitable blood and blood components for transfusion or for further manufacturing into products for human treatment or diagnosis, by performing compatibility testing between donor and recipient, or by performing positive identification of patients and blood components at the point of transfusion to prevent transfusion reactions. A BECS accessory is intended for use with BECS to augment its performance or to expand or modify its indications for use. (b) Classification—Class II (special controls). The special controls for these devices are: (1) Software performance and functional requirements including detailed design specifications (e.g., algorithms or control characteristics, alarms, device limitations, and safety requirements). (2) Verification and validation testing and hazard analysis must be performed. (3) Labeling must include: (i) Software limitations; (ii) Unresolved anomalies, annotated with an explanation of the impact on safety or effectiveness; (iii) Revision history; and (iv) Hardware and peripheral specifications. (4) Traceability matrix must be performed. (5) Performance testing to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the system must be performed, including when adding new functional requirements (e.g., electrical safety, electromagnetic compatibility, or wireless coexistence). Coast Guard, DHS. Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a special local regulation on the waters of Rada Fajardo in Fajardo, Puerto Rico during the Fajardo Offshore Challenge, a high speed boat race. The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 4, 2016. Approximately 30 high-speed power boats will be participating in the races. The special local regulation is necessary for the safety of the race participants, participant vessels, and the general public during the event. The special local regulation would establish the following two areas: one race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; and a buffer zone around the race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before March 21, 2016. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2016–0134 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http:// www.regulations.gov.

Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking U.S.C. United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On April 4, 2016, Puerto Rico Offshore Series, Inc. is sponsoring the Fajardo Offshore Challenge, a series of high-speed boat races. The races will be held on the waters of Rada Fajardo in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Approximately 30 high-speed power boats and PWCs will be participating in the races. The purpose of this proposed rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels and the navigable waters within the regulated areas before, during, and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The special local regulation encompass certain waters of Rada Fajardo in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. The proposed special local regulation would be enforced from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 4, 2016. The special local regulation consist of the following two areas: (1) A race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; and (2) a buffer zone around the race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative. Persons and vessels may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area or buffer zone by contacting the Captain of the Port San Juan by telephone at (787) 289–2041, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area or buffer zone is granted by the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the special local regulation by Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and on-scene designated representatives. E:\FR\FM\01MRP1.SGM 01MRP1 10558 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 1, 2016 / Proposed Rules IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 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. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-day of the special local regulation. The economic impact of this proposed rule is not significant for the following reasons: (1) The special local regulation will be enforced for only six hours; (2) although persons and vessels will not be able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area and buffer zone without authorization from the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding area during the enforcement period; and (3) the Coast Guard will provide advance notification of the Special Local Regulation to the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. 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. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, transit VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:05 Feb 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 through, anchor in, or remain within that portion of Rada Fajardo in Fajardo encompassed within the special local regulations from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 4, 2016. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. 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 proposed rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 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 proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would 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. If you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 E. 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 one year. Though this proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination 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 proposed rule would implement a special local regulation lasting less than 6 hours that would prohibit entry from non-participants and persons or vessels not involved in the event from enter in, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the race area or buffer zone. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of Commandant Instruction M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist and Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule. G. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places, or vessels. V. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material received during the comment period.

regulation on the waters of Rada Fajardo in Fajardo, Puerto Rico during 
the Fajardo Offshore Challenge, a high speed boat race. The event is 
scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 4, 2016. Approximately 30 
high-speed power boats will be participating in the races. The special 
local regulation is necessary for the safety of the race participants, 
participant vessels, and the general public during the event. The 
special local regulation would establish the following two areas: one 
race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and 
vessels participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from 
entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; and a 
buffer zone around the race area, where all persons and vessels, except 
those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone, are prohibited 
from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within 
unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated 
representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On April 4, 2016, Puerto Rico Offshore Series, Inc. is sponsoring 
the Fajardo Offshore Challenge, a series of high-speed boat races. The 
races will be held on the waters of Rada Fajardo in Fajardo, Puerto 
Rico. Approximately 30 high-speed power boats and PWCs will be 
participating in the races.
    The purpose of this proposed rulemaking is to ensure the safety of 
vessels and the navigable waters within the regulated areas before, 
during, and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard proposes this 
rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The special local regulation encompass certain waters of Rada 
Fajardo in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. The proposed special local regulation 
would be enforced from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 4, 2016. The 
special local regulation consist of the following two areas: (1) A race 
area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels 
participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from 
entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; and 
(2) a buffer zone around the race area, where all persons and vessels, 
except those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone, are 
prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or 
remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Juan 
or a designated representative. Persons and vessels may request 
authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within 
the race area or buffer zone by contacting the Captain of the Port San 
Juan by telephone at (787) 289-2041, or a designated representative via 
VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, 
anchor in, or remain within the race area or buffer zone is granted by 
the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative, all 
persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the 
instructions of the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated 
representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the special 
local regulation by Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners, and on-scene designated representatives.

[[Page 10558]]

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders and 
we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 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. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of 
quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing 
rules, and of promoting flexibility. This NPRM has not been designated 
a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. 
Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management 
and Budget.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, duration, and time-of-day of the special local regulation. 
The economic impact of this proposed rule is not significant for the 
following reasons: (1) The special local regulation will be enforced 
for only six hours; (2) although persons and vessels will not be able 
to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area 
and buffer zone without authorization from the Captain of the Port San 
Juan or a designated representative, they may operate in the 
surrounding area during the enforcement period; and (3) the Coast Guard 
will provide advance notification of the Special Local Regulation to 
the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners.

B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during rulemaking. 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. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this 
proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, 
transit through, anchor in, or remain within that portion of Rada 
Fajardo in Fajardo encompassed within the special local regulations 
from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 4, 2016.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.
    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 proposed rule. If the rule would affect 
your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you 
have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, 
please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT 
section. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that 
question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action 
of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520).

D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 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 proposed rule under that Order and 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.
    Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would 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. If 
you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or 
Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section.

E. 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 one year. Though this proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 made 
a preliminary determination 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 proposed rule would implement a 
special local regulation lasting less than 6 hours that would prohibit 
entry from non-participants and persons or vessels not involved in the 
event from enter in, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining 
within the race area or buffer zone. Normally such actions are 
categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of 
Figure 2-1 of Commandant Instruction M16475.lD. A preliminary 
environmental analysis checklist and Categorical Exclusion 
Determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the 
discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed 
rule.

G. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. 
Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that 
your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or 
security of people, places, or vessels.
