As a result of these difficulties with refund requests on old orders, we are now revising 36 CFR 1258.16 to set a refund time limit. Customers will have four months from the order date in which to request a refund. Background [Amended] 65. In § 558.680, in paragraphs (d)(1)(ii), (iii), (iv), (vi), (vii), and (viii) in the ‘‘Combination in grams per ton’’ and ‘‘Limitations’’ columns, remove ‘‘methylene disalicylate’’ and in its place add ‘‘methylenedisalicylate’’; and in paragraph (d)(2)(ii), in the ‘‘Combination in grams per ton’’ column, remove ‘‘methylene disalicylate’’ and in its place add ‘‘methylenedisalicylate’’. ■ Regulatory Analysis NARA is authorized by 44 U.S.C. 2116(c) to charge reproduction fees when it reproduces documents for nonFederal individuals or entities. This includes official reproductions with the Archives seal, reproductions of archival holdings, and reproductions of operational records. The statute authorizes NARA to recoup its costs, equipment fees, and similar expenses, and to retain the fees as part of the National Archives Trust Fund. NARA promulgated regulations at 36 CFR 1258 to notify users of the fee structure and processes. Among these regulations is a section addressing refunds of these fees (36 CFR 1258.16). It is this provision that we are revising with this rulemaking. Due to various factors, it is occasionally difficult for us to make a legible reproduction, particularly of old documents. We notify customers if we anticipate the reproduction will have questionable legibility, and request the customer’s approval to proceed with the reproduction—and the fee charges. As a result, we do not provide refunds except in special cases; primarily if we have somehow processed an order incorrectly or it contains errors. However, the regulation’s refund provision did not include a refund cut-off period after which a person who ordered a reproduction could no longer request a refund. Customers could request refunds for orders that were years old, which has occurred in several instances. We had no recourse but to process the refunds, which is not a reasonable business practice for orders that are multiple years old. This also caused a significant administrative burden, as NARA had discarded records for some of these orders at the end of their routine business life, in accord with our agency’s official records schedule. For example, under records schedule 1807– 2, orders made on our online ordering system (SOFA) are destroyed once they are one year old.

Salicylaldehyde; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance You may be potentially affected by this action if you are an agricultural producer, food manufacturer, or pesticide manufacturer. The following list of North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides a guide to help readers determine whether this document applies to them. Potentially affected entities may include: • Crop production (NAICS code 111). • Animal production (NAICS code 112). • Food manufacturing (NAICS code 311). • Pesticide manufacturing (NAICS code 32532). Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of salicylaldehyde (2-hydroxybenzaldehyde, CAS Reg. No. 90–02–8) when used as an inert ingredient (penetration aid) in pesticide formulations applied to growing crops and raw agricultural commodities under 40 CFR 180.910 at a concentration not to exceed 14% by weight of the pesticide formulation. Ag-Chem Consulting LLC, on behalf of Omex Agrifluids submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of salicylaldehyde. DATES: This regulation is effective March 30, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    NARA is authorized by 44 U.S.C. 2116(c) to charge reproduction fees 
when it reproduces documents for non-Federal individuals or entities. 
This includes official reproductions with the Archives seal, 
reproductions of archival holdings, and reproductions of operational 
records. The statute authorizes NARA to recoup its costs, equipment 
fees, and similar expenses, and to retain the fees as part of the 
National Archives Trust Fund. NARA promulgated regulations at 36 CFR 
1258 to notify users of the fee structure and processes. Among these 
regulations is a section addressing refunds of these fees (36 CFR 
1258.16). It is this provision that we are revising with this 
rulemaking.
    Due to various factors, it is occasionally difficult for us to make 
a legible reproduction, particularly of old documents. We notify 
customers if we anticipate the reproduction will have questionable 
legibility, and request the customer's approval to proceed with the 
reproduction--and the fee charges. As a result, we do not provide 
refunds except in special cases; primarily if we have somehow processed 
an order incorrectly or it contains errors. However, the regulation's 
refund provision did not include a refund cut-off period after which a 
person who ordered a reproduction could no longer request a refund. 
Customers could request refunds for orders that were years old, which 
has occurred in several instances. We had no recourse but to process 
the refunds, which is not a reasonable business practice for orders 
that are multiple years old. This also caused a significant 
administrative burden, as NARA had discarded records for some of these 
orders at the end of their routine business life, in accord with our 
agency's official records schedule. For example, under records schedule 
1807-2, orders made on our online ordering system (SOFA) are destroyed 
once they are one year old. A refund request five years after the 
customer received the reproduction not only is not reasonable, but 
occurs four years after we destroyed records of the order, making it 
impossible for us to determine if the customer was notified and 
approved the reproduction, whether there really was an error or 
something incorrect about the order, and similar issues.
    As a result of these difficulties with refund requests on old 
orders, we are now revising 36 CFR 1258.16 to set a refund time limit. 
Customers will have four months from the order date in which to request 
a refund.

Regulatory Analysis

Review Under Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735 
(September 30, 1993), and Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation 
and Regulation Review, 76 FR 23821 (January 18, 2011), 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 proposed rule is not ``significant'' under section 3(f) of 
Executive Order 12866 because it merely modifies the window of 
opportunity in which customers may request refunds of reproduction 
fees. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reviewed this 
regulation.

Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.)

    This review requires an agency to prepare an initial regulatory 
flexibility analysis and publish it when the agency publishes the 
proposed rule. This requirement does not apply if the agency certifies 
that the rule will not, if promulgated, have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities (5 U.S.C. 603). NARA 
certifies, after review and analysis, that this proposed rule will not 
have a significant adverse economic impact on small entities because it 
merely modifies the window of opportunity in which customers may 
request refunds of reproduction fees.

Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.)

    This proposed rule does not contain any information collection 
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act.

[[Page 17611]]

Review Under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 
1999)

    Review under Executive Order 13132 requires that agencies review 
regulations for federalism effects on the institutional interest of 
states and local governments, and, if the effects are sufficiently 
substantial, prepare a Federal assessment to assist senior policy 
makers. This proposed rule will not have any direct effects on State 
and local governments within the meaning of the Executive Order. 
Therefore, the regulation requires no federalism assessment.
