Because this minor amendment is strictly technical in nature, providing notice and comment and delaying the effective date are unnecessary. Moreover, in clarifying the meaning of ‘‘employee,’’ this rule is an interpretative rule and thus exempt from notice and comment and a delay in effective date pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b) and 553(d)(2), respectively. Finally, this rule recognizes exemptions, which exempts the rule from the 30-day delayed effective date pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(1). Nonetheless, this interim final rule provides a 60-day comment period for agencies and the public. The Office of Government Ethics will review any comments received during the comment period and consider any modifications to this rule that appear warranted. Regulatory Flexibility Act As Director of the Office of Government Ethics, I certify under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6) that this interim final rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it primarily affects covered employees. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) does not apply because this regulation does not contain information collection requirements that require approval of the Office of Management and Budget. ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES Unfunded Mandates Reform Act For purposes of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. chapter 25, subchapter II), this interim final rule would not significantly or uniquely affect small governments and will not result in increased expenditures by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more (as adjusted for inflation) in any one year. Congressional Review Act The Office of Government Ethics has determined that this rulemaking involves a nonmajor rule under the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 8) and will, before the interim final rule takes effect, submit a report thereon to the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and General Accounting Office in accordance with that law. regulation set forth in section 1 of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC published a final rule amending regulations that became effective August 23, 2016. The FY 2016 final fee rule, published June 24, 2016 (81 FR 41171), amended the licensing, inspection, special project, and annual fees charged to NRC applicants and licensees. Fee category 6.A. under § 171.16(d) includes fees for licenses for the commercial collection and laundry of items contaminated with byproduct material, source material, or special nuclear material [Program Code(s): 03218]. Because the NRC has no licensees in this category, the final rule inadvertently set the fee amount at $0. However, there are several Agreement States with licensees in this category. Agreement States that regulate nuclear laundries incorporate by reference the NRC fee schedule into their own regulations to establish their fees. To establish a fee for nuclear laundries in the absence of an NRC fee amount, the Agreement States would need to initiate a rulemaking, a timely and costly solution to fix the NRC’s administrative oversight. Therefore, the NRC is correcting this oversight and changing the annual fee for fee category 6.A. for materials licensees from the FY 2016 rate of $0 to the FY 2015 rate of $40,100. This correction will have no material impact on the fees paid by NRC licensees for services; it will, however, allow Agreement States to continue to set and collect fees for regulated services in the equivalent fee category. Rulemaking Procedure Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the NRC finds good cause to waive notice and opportunity for comment on this amendment. This amendment is needed to correct an inadvertent error by the NRC, which removed the fee amount for nuclear laundries. The NRC incorrectly believed that there would be no consequences to removing the fee amount because there are no NRC-regulated nuclear laundries for which the NRC must collect fees. However, the NRC did not realize that many Agreement States regulating nuclear laundries base their fees upon the NRC-prescribed amount. Removal of the NRC fee would have the unforeseen and unintended adverse consequence of preventing those Agreement States from collecting fees from nuclear laundries regulated by those Agreement States. This rulemaking merely restores the previously prescribed fee for NRCregulated nuclear laundries. The sole purpose of this rulemaking is to allow those Agreement States that base their fees on the NRC-prescribed amount to collect fees from nuclear laundries regulated by those Agreement States. As set forth earlier, this action has no effect on NRC-regulated entities because there are no NRC-regulated nuclear laundries. For these reasons, the NRC finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause exists to make this rule effective upon publication of this notice.

For the reasons set out in the preamble and under the authority of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended; the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, as amended; and 5 U.S.C. 552 and 553, the NRC is adopting the following amendments to 10 CFR part 171: PART 171—ANNUAL FEES FOR REACTOR LICENSES AND FUEL CYCLE LICENSES AND MATERIALS LICENSES, INCLUDING HOLDERS OF CERTIFICATES OF COMPLIANCE, REGISTRATIONS, AND QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM APPROVALS AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES LICENSED BY THE NRC 1.

Annual fees for licensees who filed for termination of a license, downgrade of a license, or for a possession-only license during the FY and for new licenses issued during the FY will be prorated in accordance with the provisions of § 171.17. If a person holds more than one license, certificate, registration, or approval, the annual fee(s) will be assessed for each license, certificate, registration, or approval held by that person. For licenses that authorize more than one activity on a single license (e.g., human use and irradiator activities), annual fees will be assessed for each category applicable to the license. 2 Payment of the prescribed annual fee does not automatically renew the license, certificate, registration, or approval for which the fee is paid. Renewal applications must be filed in accordance with the requirements of parts 30, 40, 70, 71, 72, or 76 of this chapter.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC published a final rule amending 
regulations that became effective August 23, 2016. The FY 2016 final 
fee rule, published June 24, 2016 (81 FR 41171), amended the licensing, 
inspection, special project, and annual fees charged to NRC applicants 
and licensees.
    Fee category 6.A. under Sec.  171.16(d) includes fees for licenses 
for the commercial collection and laundry of items contaminated with 
byproduct material, source material, or special nuclear material 
[Program Code(s): 03218]. Because the NRC has no licensees in this 
category, the final rule inadvertently set the fee amount at $0. 
However, there are several Agreement States with licensees in this 
category. Agreement States that regulate nuclear laundries incorporate 
by reference the NRC fee schedule into their own regulations to 
establish their fees. To establish a fee for nuclear laundries in the 
absence of an NRC fee amount, the Agreement States would need to 
initiate a rulemaking, a timely and costly solution to fix the NRC's 
administrative oversight. Therefore, the NRC is correcting this 
oversight and changing the annual fee for fee category 6.A. for 
materials licensees from the FY 2016 rate of $0 to the FY 2015 rate of 
$40,100. This correction will have no material impact on the fees paid 
by NRC licensees for services; it will, however, allow Agreement States 
to continue to set and collect fees for regulated services in the 
equivalent fee category.

Rulemaking Procedure

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency 
may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for 
good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. As authorized by 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the NRC 
finds good cause to waive notice and opportunity for comment on this 
amendment. This amendment is needed to correct an inadvertent error by 
the NRC, which removed the fee amount for nuclear laundries. The NRC 
incorrectly believed that there would be no consequences to removing 
the fee amount because there are no NRC-regulated nuclear laundries for 
which the NRC must collect fees. However, the NRC did not realize that 
many Agreement States regulating nuclear laundries base their fees upon 
the NRC-prescribed amount. Removal of the NRC fee would have the 
unforeseen and unintended adverse consequence of preventing those 
Agreement States from collecting fees from nuclear laundries regulated 
by those Agreement States. This rulemaking merely restores the 
previously prescribed fee for NRC-regulated nuclear laundries. The sole 
purpose of this rulemaking is to allow those Agreement States that base 
their fees on the NRC-prescribed amount to collect fees from nuclear 
laundries regulated by those Agreement States. As set forth earlier, 
this action has no effect on NRC-regulated entities because there are 
no NRC-regulated nuclear laundries. For these reasons, the NRC finds, 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause exists to make this 
rule effective upon publication of this notice.
