What does this correction do? EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of May 16, 2016 (81 FR 30477) (FRL–9944–77) for significant new uses for 55 chemical substances that were the subject of PMN notices. EPA omitted the de mimimus exemption of 1.0% from the worker protection requirements for § 721.10908(a)(2)(i). EPA also, within the hazard communication program requirements for § 721.10908(a)(2)(ii), misspelled a word. In that section, the word ‘‘trhough’’ should read ‘‘through.’’ This action corrects the omission and the typographical error. III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule? Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B)) provides that, when an E:\FR\FM\11JYR1.SGM 11JYR1 44798 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 132 / Monday, July 11, 2016 / Rules and Regulations Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the Agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this correction final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment. The TSCA section 5(e) consent order for P–15–378 that is the basis for the SNUR at § 721.10908 contains the de minimus exemption of 1.0% that is missing from the worker protection requirements for § 721.10908(a)(2)(i). The typographical error corrects a spelling mistake for the word ‘‘through.’’ EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). IV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Atlantic shark fisheries are managed under the 2006 Consolidated Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP), its amendments, and implementing regulations (50 CFR part 635) issued under authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.). Atlantic shark fisheries have separate regional (Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic) quotas for all management groups except for the shark research fishery for LCS and sandbar sharks, blue shark, porbeagle shark, and pelagic shark (other than porbeagle or blue sharks) management groups. The boundary between the Gulf of Mexico region and the Atlantic region is defined at § 635.27(b)(1) as a line beginning on the East Coast of Florida at the mainland at 25°20.4′ N. lat, proceeding due east. Any water and land to the north and east of that boundary is considered, for the purposes of quota monitoring and setting of quotas, to be within the Atlantic region. This inseason action only affects the aggregated LCS and hammerhead shark management groups in the Atlantic region. Under § 635.24(a)(8), NMFS may adjust the commercial retention limit in the shark fisheries during the fishing season. Before making any adjustment, NMFS must consider specified regulatory criteria and other relevant factors. (See 635.24(a)(8)(i)–(vi)). After considering these criteria as discussed below, NMFS has concluded that increasing the retention limit of the Atlantic aggregated LCS and hammerhead management groups for directed shark limited access permit holders will allow use of available aggregated LCS and hammerhead shark management group quotas and will provide fishermen throughout the Atlantic region equitable fishing E:\FR\FM\11JYR1.SGM 11JYR1

Significant New Use Rules on Certain Chemical Substances; 
Correction

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of May 16, 
2016 for 55 chemical substances that were the subject of premanufacture 
notices (PMNs). For the chemical substance identified generically as 
aluminum calcium oxide salt (PMN P-15-328), EPA inadvertently omitted 
the de minimus exemption from the worker protection requirements. Also 
for the same chemical substance, a typographical error has been 
identified within the hazard communication program requirements. This 
document corrects the omission and the typographical error.

DATES: This correction is effective July 15, 2016.

ADDRESSES: The docket for this action, identified by docket 
identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2015-0810, is available at 
http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pollution Prevention and 
Toxics Docket (OPPT Docket), Environmental Protection Agency Docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Does this action apply to me?

    The Agency included in the May 16, 2016 final rule a list of those 
who may be potentially affected by this action.

II. What does this correction do?

    EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of May 16, 2016 (81 
FR 30477) (FRL-9944-77) for significant new uses for 55 chemical 
substances that were the subject of PMN notices. EPA omitted the de 
mimimus exemption of 1.0% from the worker protection requirements for 
Sec.  721.10908(a)(2)(i). EPA also, within the hazard communication 
program requirements for Sec.  721.10908(a)(2)(ii), misspelled a word. 
In that section, the word ``trhough'' should read ``through.'' This 
action corrects the omission and the typographical error.

III. Why is this correction issued as a final rule?

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B)) provides that, when an

[[Page 44798]]

Agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are 
impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the 
Agency may issue a final rule without providing notice and an 
opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good 
cause for making this correction final without prior proposal and 
opportunity for comment. The TSCA section 5(e) consent order for P-15-
378 that is the basis for the SNUR at Sec.  721.10908 contains the de 
minimus exemption of 1.0% that is missing from the worker protection 
requirements for Sec.  721.10908(a)(2)(i). The typographical error 
corrects a spelling mistake for the word ``through.'' EPA finds that 
this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B).

IV. Do any of the statutory and Executive Order reviews apply to this 
action?

    No. For a detailed discussion concerning the statutory and 
executive order review, refer to Unit XII. of the May 16, 2016 final 
rule.

V. 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).
