No. 24550, 51 FR 40692, 40708) that amended and updated the operations and maintenance requirements pertaining to rotorcraft and established a new Class D rotorcraft-load combination. The final rule created a new § 133.35, Carriage of persons. With the creation of § 133.35, the occupancy limitations crossreferenced in § 133.49(a) were moved from § 133.45(a) to § 133.35(a). The cross-reference in § 133.49(a) was not amended to reflect this change. The final rule also amended § 133.45, Operating limitations, by removing paragraph (a). This resulted in paragraphs (b), (c), (d), and (e) to be redesignated as paragraphs (a), (b), (c), and (d), respectively. The crossreference in § 133.49(b) was not amended to reflect these changes. In this final rule, the FAA failed to update the regulatory cross-references in § 133.49(a) and (b), based on the changes previously described. This technical amendment updates the crossreferences in § 133.49(a) and (b), based on the 1986 final rule. Technical Amendment This technical amendment will correct the noted cross-references currently in § 133.49(a) and (b).

These changes are intended to revise the EAR controls on these items by making them more consistent with the export controls of other countries that manufacture these items and that, together with the United States, are participating countries in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). As a result of the changes made by this rule, some of these items are no longer listed under an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) on the CCL. However, such items remain subject to the EAR under the designation EAR99. This rule also creates four new ECCNs to maintain anti-terrorism (AT) controls on certain affected commodities and related ‘‘software’’ and ‘‘technology.’’ All items subject to the EAR, regardless of whether they are listed on the CCL, may require a license for reasons described elsewhere in the EAR (e.g., license requirements based on end-user/end-use SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\25NOR1.SGM 25NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Good Cause for Immediate Adoption Without Prior Notice

    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 
U.S.C. 551 et seq.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and 
comment procedures for rules when the agency for ``good cause'' finds 
that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest.'' Under this section, an agency, upon finding good 
cause, may issue a final rule without seeking comment prior to the 
rulemaking.
    Section 553(d)(3) of the Administrative Procedure Act requires that 
agencies publish a rule not less than 30 days before its effective 
date, except as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause found 
and published with the rule.
    This document is correcting an error that is in 14 CFR part 133. 
This correction will not impose any additional restrictions on the 
persons affected by these regulations. Furthermore, any additional 
delay in making the regulations correct would be contrary to the public 
interest. Accordingly, the FAA finds that (i) public comment on these 
standards prior to promulgation is unnecessary, and (ii) good cause 
exists to make this rule effective in less than 30 days.

Background

    On November 7, 1986, the FAA published a final rule (Doc. No. 
24550, 51 FR 40692, 40708) that amended and updated the operations and 
maintenance requirements pertaining to rotorcraft and established a new 
Class D rotorcraft-load combination. The final rule created a new Sec.  
133.35, Carriage of persons. With the creation of Sec.  133.35, the 
occupancy limitations cross-referenced in Sec.  133.49(a) were moved 
from Sec.  133.45(a) to Sec.  133.35(a). The cross-reference in Sec.  
133.49(a) was not amended to reflect this change.
    The final rule also amended Sec.  133.45, Operating limitations, by 
removing paragraph (a). This resulted in paragraphs (b), (c), (d), and 
(e) to be redesignated as paragraphs (a), (b), (c), and (d), 
respectively. The cross-reference in Sec.  133.49(b) was not amended to 
reflect these changes. In this final rule, the FAA failed to update the 
regulatory cross-references in Sec.  133.49(a) and (b), based on the 
changes previously described. This technical amendment updates the 
cross-references in Sec.  133.49(a) and (b), based on the 1986 final 
rule.

Technical Amendment

    This technical amendment will correct the noted cross-references 
currently in Sec.  133.49(a) and (b). Because this action results in no 
substantive change to part 133, we find good cause exists under 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make this technical amendment effective in less 
than 30 days and upon its publication in the Federal Register.
