Download as PDF jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES 15426 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 56 / Wednesday, March 23, 2016 / Rules and Regulations This rule continues in effect the action that decreased the assessment obligation imposed on handlers. Assessments are applied uniformly on all handlers, and some of the costs may be passed on to producers. However, decreasing the assessment rate reduces the burden on handlers, and may reduce the burden on producers. In addition, the Committee’s meeting was widely publicized throughout the Florida tomato industry and all interested persons were invited to attend the meeting and participate in Committee deliberations on all issues. Like all Committee meetings, the August 25, 2015, meeting was a public meeting and all entities, both large and small, were able to express views on this issue. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the order’s information collection requirements have been previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and assigned OMB No. 0581–0178 ‘‘Vegetable and Specialty Crops.’’ No changes in those requirements as a result of this action are necessary. Should any changes become necessary, they would be submitted to OMB for approval. This action imposes no additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements on either small or large Florida tomato handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap or conflict with this rule. Comments on the interim rule were required to be received on or before January 25, 2016. No comments were received. Therefore, for reasons given in the interim rule, we are adopting the interim rule as a final rule, without change. To view the interim rule, go to: http://www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=AMS-FV-15-00580001. This action also affirms information contained in the interim rule concerning Executive Orders 12866, 12988, 13175, and 13563; the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35); and the EGov Act (44 U.S.C. 101). After consideration of all relevant material presented, it is found that finalizing the interim rule, without change, as published in the Federal Register (80 FR 73642, November 25, 2015) will tend to effectuate the declared policy of the Act.

Background A. Safety Standard for Architectural Glazing Materials On January 6, 1977 (42 FR 1427), as amended on June 20, 1977 (42 FR VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:23 Mar 22, 2016 Jkt 238001 31164), the Commission issued the Safety Standard for Architectural Glazing Materials under the Consumer Product Safety Act (‘‘CPSA’’) to reduce or eliminate risks of injuries associated with walking, running, or falling through or against glazing materials (‘‘CPSC standard’’). The standard applies to glazing materials used or intended for use in any of the following architectural products: (1) Storm doors or combination doors; (2) Doors (both exterior and interior); (3) Bathtub doors and enclosures; (4) Shower doors and enclosures; and (5) Sliding glass doors (patio-type). The standard applies to glazing materials and architectural products incorporating glazing materials that are produced or distributed for sale to or for the personal use, consumption or enjoyment of consumers in or around a permanent or temporary household or residence or in recreational, school, public, or other buildings or parts thereof. The standard was codified at 16 CFR part 1201. The standard exempts certain products, materials, and uses including: Wired glass used in doors or other assemblies to retard the passage of fire where such door or assembly is required by federal, state, local, or municipal fire ordinance; louvers of jalousie doors; and openings of doors through which a 3 inch diameter sphere is unable to pass. Carved glass, dalle glass, or leaded glass, which is used in doors and glazed panels are exempt if the glazing material meets all of the following criteria: • The coloring, texturing, or other design qualities or components of the glazing material cannot be removed without destroying the material; and • The primary purpose of such glazing is decorative or artistic; and • The glazing material is conspicuously colored or textured so as to be plainly visible and plainly identifiable as aesthetic or decorative rather than functional (other than for the purpose of admitting or controlling admission of light components or heat and cold); and • The glazing material, or assembly into which it is incorporated, is divided into segments by conspicuous and plainly visible lines. Other exempt materials include glazing materials used as curved glazed panels in revolving doors; and commercial refrigerator cabinet glazed doors. See, 16 CFR 1201.1(c). On September 27, 1978, (43 FR 43704), the Commission amended the standard to clarify the definitions, description of test apparatus, and test procedures in the standard. The Commission subsequently revoked PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 15427 portions of the standard that prescribed requirements for ‘‘glazed panels’’ (45 FR 67383, August 28, 1980); an accelerated environmental durability test for plastic glazing materials intended for outdoor exposure (45 FR 66002, October 6, 1980); and a modulus of elasticity test, a harness test, and an indoor aging test applicable to plastic glazing materials (47 FR 27853, June 28, 1982). 16 CFR 1201.1(d) n.1. Tempered glass, wired glass, and annealed glass are also exempt from the accelerated environmental durability tests. See, 16 CFR 1201.4(a)(2). B. Petition On June 26, 2012, the Commission received a petition from the Safety Glazing Certification Council (‘‘SGCC’’ or ‘‘petitioner’’) requesting that the Commission initiate rulemaking to replace the testing procedures for glazing materials in certain architectural products set forth in 16 CFR 1201.4 with the testing procedures contained in the voluntary standard, ANSI Z97.1–2009ε2, American National Standard for Safety Glazing Materials Used in Buildings— Safety Performance Specifications and Methods of Test (the ANSI standard). SGCC stated that consumers and the glazing industry would be better served if the test procedures for glazing materials used in architectural products in 16 CFR 1201.4 were replaced with the ANSI standard because the ANSI test procedures are more efficient and modern, having been updated periodically, in contrast to the CPSC standard. On April 9, 2013, the Commission voted to grant the petition. C. The Proposed Rule On May 22, 2015, the Commission published a notice of proposed rulemaking (‘‘NPR’’) in the Federal Register (80 FR 29555) to amend the Safety Standard for Architectural Glazing Materials (16 CFR part 1201). The NPR proposed to replace the testing procedures for glazing materials in certain architectural products, set forth in 16 CFR 1201.4, with the testing procedures contained in the voluntary standard, ANSI Z97.1–2009ε2. The ANSI standard establishes specifications and methods of testing for the safety properties of glazing materials used for building and architectural purposes. The tests for safety glazing materials in the ANSI standard include impact, center punch fragmentation, thermal, weathering, indoor aging, hardness, and modulus tests. The NPR proposed to replace the CPSC test procedures in 16 CFR 1201.4 with the ANSI Z97.1–2009ε2 to clarify the existing test procedures. The E:\FR\FM\23MRR1.SGM 23MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 
published a final rule in the Federal Register on January 25, 2016 
(``the January 2016 final rule'') amending the test procedure for 
pumps. (81 FR 4085.) As part of that final rule, DOE amended 10 CFR 
429.134 to add a paragraph (h), which addresses product-specific 
enforcement provisions related to pumps. This correction addresses the 
placement of those provisions under 10 CFR 429.134 at paragraph (h). At 
the time of publication of the January 2015 final rule, 10 CFR 
429.134(h) already existed. In order to remedy this error, DOE is 
issuing this final rule correction to move these provisions, verbatim, 
to 10 CFR 429.134(i).

10. Section 429.134 is amended by adding paragraph (i) to read as 
follows:


Sec.  429.134  Product-specific enforcement provisions.

* * * * *
    (i) Pumps. (1) The volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and 
nominal speed of rotation of each tested unit of the basic model will 
be measured pursuant to the test requirements of Sec.  431.464 of this 
chapter, where the value of volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and 
nominal speed of rotation certified by the manufacturer will be treated 
as the expected BEP flow rate. The results of the measurement(s) will 
be compared to the value of volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and 
nominal speed of rotation certified by the manufacturer. The certified 
volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and nominal speed of rotation 
will be considered valid only if the measurement(s) (either the 
measured volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and nominal speed of 
rotation for a single unit sample or the average of the measured flow 
rates for a multiple unit sample) is within five percent of the 
certified volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and nominal speed of 
rotation.
    (i) If the representative value of volume rate of flow (flow rate) 
at BEP and nominal speed of rotation is found to be valid, the measured 
volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and nominal speed of rotation 
will be used in subsequent calculations of constant load pump energy 
rating (PERCL) and constant load pump energy index (PEICL) or variable 
load pump energy rating (PERVL) and variable load pump energy index 
(PEIVL) for that basic model.
    (ii) If the representative value of volume rate of flow (flow rate) 
at BEP and nominal speed of rotation is found to be invalid, the mean 
of all the measured volume rate of flow (flow rate) at BEP and nominal 
speed of rotation values determined from the tested

unit(s) will serve as the new expected BEP flow rate and the unit(s) 
will be retested until such time as the measured rate of flow (flow 
rate) at BEP and nominal speed of rotation is within 5 percent of the 
expected BEP flow rate.
    (2) DOE will test each pump unit according to the test method 
specified by the manufacturer in the certification report submitted 
pursuant to Sec.  429.59(b).
