The USPTO corrects the errors as discussed below. In FR Doc. 2016–25506, appearing on page 72694 in the Federal Register of Friday, October 21, 2016, make the following corrections: 1. On page 72697, in the table entitled ‘‘Fees for Paper Filings,’’ revise the following: a. In the entry for 2.6(a)(22)(i), the Description is corrected to read ‘‘Filing a Request for an Extension of Time to File a Notice of Opposition under § 2.102(c)(1)(ii) or (c)(2) on Paper,’’ and b. In the entry for 2.6(a)(23)(i), the Description is corrected to read ‘‘Filing a Request for an Extension of Time to File a Notice of Opposition under § 2.102(c)(3) on Paper.’’ 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Need for Correction: As published, the regulatory and explanatory text in the final rule implementing changes to trademark fees (81 FR 72694; October 21, 2016) are correct. However, certain tables included in the preamble contain minor errors. In the tables entitled ‘‘Fees for Paper Filings’’ and ‘‘New Fees for Extensions of Time at the TTAB,’’ the descriptions for certain fees listed were mistakenly transposed. In the table entitled ‘‘Other Trademark-Processing Fees [Extension of time to file a statement of use],’’ a CFR citation contained a typographical error.

The Administrator determined that this action is subject to the provisions of Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) section 307(d). CAA section 307(d)(1)(V) (the provisions of CAA section 307(d) apply to ‘‘such other actions as the Administrator may determine’’). These are amendments to existing regulations and could affect any facility that is eligible for a PSD permit rescission for any such permit issued by the EPA, reviewing authorities that implement the EPA’s regulations through delegation or reviewing authorities that incorporate the federal PSD regulations by reference. A. Does this action apply to me? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is promulgating amendments to the EPA’s federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) regulations to remove a date restriction from the Permit Rescission provision. Other than removing the date restriction, this final rule does not alter the criteria under which a new source review (NSR) permit may be rescinded. This final rule also clarifies that a rescission of a permit is not automatic and corrects an outdated cross-reference to another part of the PSD regulations. The EPA is also adding a corresponding Permit Rescission provision in the federal regulations that apply to major sources in nonattainment areas of Indian country. DATES: This final rule is effective on December 7, 2016. ADDRESSES: The EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OAR–2015–0782. All documents in the docket are listed on the http://www.regulations.gov Web site. Although listed in the index, some information is not publicly available, i.e., confidential business information or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute.

Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations K. Congressional Review Act (CRA) L. Judicial Review VI. Statutory Authority II. Background for Final Rulemaking On June 14, 2016, the EPA proposed revisions to the Permit Rescission provision in the EPA’s federal PSD regulations at 40 CFR 52.21(w). The proposed revisions remove a date restriction from this provision, clarify that a rescission of a permit is contingent on the reviewing authority’s concurrence with a rescission applicant’s demonstration that the PSD permit provisions ‘‘would not apply to the source or modification,’’ and correct an outdated cross-reference to another part of the PSD regulations. The EPA also proposed to add a corresponding Permit Rescission provision in the federal regulations that apply to major sources in nonattainment areas of Indian country. The preamble to the proposal provided an overview of the NSR permitting program and a brief history of the previous revisions to the Permit Rescission provision regulations. The preamble also explained the EPA’s basis for the proposed changes and rationale. Because the EPA is finalizing this rule as it was proposed, this final rulemaking notice does not repeat that discussion. The 30-day public comment period for the proposed rule closed on July 14, 2016.

published in the Federal Register of Friday, October 21, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Need for Correction: As published, the regulatory and explanatory 
text in the final rule implementing changes to trademark fees (81 FR 
72694; October 21, 2016) are correct. However, certain tables included 
in the preamble contain minor errors. In the tables entitled ``Fees for 
Paper Filings'' and ``New Fees for Extensions of Time at the TTAB,'' 
the descriptions for certain fees listed were mistakenly transposed. In 
the table entitled ``Other Trademark-Processing Fees [Extension of time 
to file a statement of use],'' a CFR citation contained a typographical 
error. Good cause exists to issue this rule without prior notice and 
opportunity for comment as the corrections are non-substantive and are 
being implemented to avoid inconsistencies and any confusion that may 
occur when comparing the items in the tables with the regulatory text. 
The USPTO corrects the errors as discussed below.
    In FR Doc. 2016-25506, appearing on page 72694 in the Federal 
Register of Friday, October 21, 2016, make the following corrections:
    1. On page 72697, in the table entitled ``Fees for Paper Filings,'' 
revise the following:
    a. In the entry for 2.6(a)(22)(i), the Description is corrected to 
read ``Filing a Request for an Extension of Time to File a Notice of 
Opposition under Sec.  2.102(c)(1)(ii) or (c)(2) on Paper,'' and
    b. In the entry for 2.6(a)(23)(i), the Description is corrected to 
read ``Filing a Request for an Extension of Time to File a Notice of 
Opposition under Sec.  2.102(c)(3) on Paper.''
    2. On page 72700, the table entitled ``Other Trademark-Processing 
Fees [Extension of time to file a statement of use]'' is corrected to
