Registration Review Proposed Decisions for Sulfonylurea Herbicides; Reopening of Comment Period, 66656-66657 [2016-23437]

Download as PDF 66656 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 188 / Wednesday, September 28, 2016 / Notices scenarios in which transfers of lowvalue equipment require Commission review. These transactions account for a large percentage of the section 203 filings submitted to the Commission,48 and many of them do not raise concerns under the Commission’s public interest analysis. 40. As noted above, the Commission has granted blanket authorizations for certain jurisdictional transactions. The Commission believes there may be certain other categories of transactions for which abbreviated filing requirements may be appropriate. Thus, the Commission seeks comment on whether there are categories of proposed transactions that are jurisdictional only under section 203(a)(1)(B) that, by their nature, do not require the same level of scrutiny by the Commission. One such category of proposed transactions could include those below a minimum dollar threshold. Such a threshold would be distinct from the threshold for the Commission to review a section 203 transaction, and would establish a benchmark for identifying transactions under section 203(a)(1)(B) that are jurisdictional but that would not require the same level of scrutiny by the Commission. 41. If such categories can be identified, the Commission seeks comment on ideas for facilitating expeditious processing of those transactions, consistent with the Commission’s obligations under the FPA. The Commission offers, as an example, the adoption of abbreviated filing requirements for those transactions under section 203(a)(1)(B) that fall within certain categories. These abbreviated filing requirements could include: (a) A request for partial waiver that sets forth the requirements for which waiver is sought; and (b) a certification by the applicants that the proposed transaction does not raise concerns under the Commission’s analysis of whether a transaction is consistent with the public interest (i.e., the transaction will have no adverse effect on competition, rates, or regulation, and will not result in crosssubsidization). The Commission seeks comment on alternative methods as well. 42. The Commission invites interested persons to submit comments on the IV. Document Availability 46.
