DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY 10 CFR Part 430 [Docket Number EERE–2014–BT–TP–0014] RIN 1904–AD22 Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedures for Portable Air Conditioners; Correction Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy. ACTION: Correcting amendments. AGENCY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a final rule in the Federal Register on June 1, 2016, establishing test procedures for portable air conditioners. This correction addresses typographical errors in that final rule that were included in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 430, subpart B, appendix CC. Neither the errors nor the corrections in this document affect the substance of the rulemaking or any of the conclusions reached in support of the final rule. DATES: This correction is effective October 14, 2016.

Email: Sarah.Butler@hq.doe.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 1, 2016, DOE published a final rule (the ‘‘June 2016 final rule’’) to establish test procedures for portable air conditioners. ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:00 Oct 13, 2016 Jkt 241001 81 FR 35241. DOE has since found that the June 2016 final rule contained minor typographical errors in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 430, subpart B, appendix CC. This final rule correction revises appendix CC to subpart B of 10 CFR part 430, to correct these typographical errors. Specifically, in section 4.1.1, DOE is correcting the following errors: An incorrect subscript for the variable Tduct_SD_j in the Qduct_SD equation and missing subscripts ‘‘j’’ on the Tduct variables in the equations for Qduct_95 and Qduct_83. In section 4.1.2, DOE is correcting the following errors: A missing equals sign and parenthesis; incorrect subscripts for the variable Cp_da and the infiltration air variables in the Qs_95 equation; incorrect subscripts in the infiltration air variables in the Qs_ 83 equation; missing equals signs in the Ql_95 and Ql_83 equations; and missing ‘‘Q’’ variables and incorrect subscripts for the Ql_95 and Ql_83 variables in the Qinfiltration_95 and Qinfiltration_83 equations. DOE also found that the summation symbols in the two dual-duct Qduct equations in section 4.1.1 were not properly represented in the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR). Neither the errors nor the corrections in this document affect the substance of the rulemaking or any of the conclusions reached in support of the final rule. Accordingly, DOE finds that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to not issue a separate notice to solicit public comment on the corrections contained in this final rule as doing so would be impractical, unnecessary, and contrary to the public interest. For the same reasons and pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), DOE finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effective date. Procedural Issues and Regulatory Review DOE has concluded that the determinations made pursuant to the various procedural requirements to the June 2016 final rule that originally codified DOE’s test procedures for portable air conditioners remain unchanged for this final rule technical correction. 81 FR 35241. The amendments from that final rule became effective July 1, 2016. Id.

Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedures for Portable Air 
Conditioners; Correction

AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of 
Energy.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a final rule in 
the Federal Register on June 1, 2016, establishing test procedures for 
portable air conditioners. This correction addresses typographical 
errors in that final rule that were included in Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part 430, subpart B, appendix CC. Neither the 
errors nor the corrections in this document affect the substance of the 
rulemaking or any of the conclusions reached in support of the final 
rule.

DATES: This correction is effective October 14, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Bryan Berringer, U.S. Department 
of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Building 
Technologies Office, EE-5B, 1000 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, 
DC 20585-0121. Telephone: (202) 586-0371. Email:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 1, 2016, DOE published a final rule 
(the ``June 2016 final rule'') to establish test procedures for 
portable air conditioners. 81 FR 35241. DOE has since found that the 
June 2016 final rule contained minor typographical errors in Title 10 
of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 430, subpart B, appendix 
CC. This final rule correction revises appendix CC to subpart B of 10 
CFR part 430, to correct these typographical errors. Specifically, in 
section 4.1.1, DOE is correcting the following errors: An incorrect 
subscript for the variable Tduct_SD_j in the 
Qduct_SD equation and missing subscripts ``j'' on the 
Tduct variables in the equations for Qduct_95 and 
Qduct_83. In section 4.1.2, DOE is correcting the following 
errors: A missing equals sign and parenthesis; incorrect subscripts for 
the variable Cp_da and the infiltration air variables in the 
Qs_95 equation; incorrect subscripts in the infiltration air 
variables in the Qs_83 equation; missing equals signs in the 
Ql_95 and Ql_83 equations; and missing ``Q'' 
variables and incorrect subscripts for the Ql_95 and 
Ql_83 variables in the Qinfiltration_95 and 
Qinfiltration_83 equations.
    DOE also found that the summation symbols in the two dual-duct 
Qduct equations in section 4.1.1 were not properly 
represented in the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR).
    Neither the errors nor the corrections in this document affect the 
substance of the rulemaking or any of the conclusions reached in 
support of the final rule. Accordingly, DOE finds that there is good 
cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to not issue a separate notice to 
solicit public comment on the corrections contained in this final rule 
as doing so would be impractical, unnecessary, and contrary to the 
public interest. For the same reasons and pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), 
DOE finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effective date.

Procedural Issues and Regulatory Review

    DOE has concluded that the determinations made pursuant to the 
various procedural requirements to the June 2016 final rule that 
originally codified DOE's test procedures for portable air conditioners 
remain unchanged for this final rule technical correction. 81 FR 35241. 
The amendments from that final rule became effective July 1, 2016. Id.

condenser air from the conditioned space. Calculate the heat 
contribution from infiltration air for single-duct and dual-duct 
portable air conditioners for both cooling mode outdoor test 
conditions, as described in this section. Calculate the dry air mass 
flow rate of infiltration air according to the following equations:
