ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date. AGENCY: The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) is briefly postponing the effective date of its recently-promulgated final rule that establishes revised accessibility standards and guidelines for information and communication technology (ICT). The ICT final rule was published in the Federal Register on January 18, 2017, and is scheduled to become effective on March 20, 2017. A brief postponement of this effective date is necessitated by the memorandum from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled ‘‘Regulatory Freeze Pending Review’’ (Jan. 20, 2017), which generally calls on Federal agencies to delay the effective dates of published, but not-yet-effective, final rules for 60 days from the date of the memorandum. The ICT final rule will take effect on March 21, 2017. DATES: The effective date of the final rule published on January 18, 2017 at 82 FR 5790 is delayed to March 21, 2017. However, compliance with the section 508-based standards is not required until January 18, 2018, which is one year after the final rule’s original publication date. Compliance with the section 255-based guidelines is not required until the guidelines are adopted by the Federal Communications Commission. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the final rule published on January 18, 2017 at 82 FR 5790 is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of March 21, 2017.

SUMMARY: On January 18, 2017, the Access Board issued a final rule that revised and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\02MRR1.SGM 02MRR1 pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES 12296 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 40 / Thursday, March 2, 2017 / Rules and Regulations updated, in a single rulemaking, our existing standards for information and technology (ICT) covered by section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (which includes, among other things, ICT developed, procured, maintained, or used by Federal agencies) (hereafter, ‘‘Revised 508 Standards’’), and our existing guidelines for telecommunications equipment and customer premises equipment covered by Section 255 of the Communications Act of 1934 (hereafter, ‘‘Revised 255 Guidelines.’’). See Information and Communication Technology Standards and Guidelines, 82 FR 5790 (Jan. 18, 2017) (to be codified at 36 CFR parts 1193 and 1194). The published notice for the ICT final rule provided that the rule would take effect on March 20, 2017. Subsequently, on January 20, 2017, the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, issued a memorandum entitled ‘‘Regulatory Freeze Pending Review.’’ This memorandum instructed Federal departments and agencies, among other things, to temporarily postpone for 60 days (dating from the date of the memorandum) the effective dates of their respective regulations that had been published in the Federal Register but were not yet effective. In accordance with the January 20 memorandum, the Access Board is briefly postponing the effective date of the ICT final rule until March 21, 2017, which represents a one-day delay in the effective date of this final rule relative to its originally-scheduled effective date. There is no change to the substance of the Revised 508 Standards or Revised 255 Guidelines. Nor does this brief postponement of the effective date alter the compliance date for certain ICT covered by the Revised 508 Standards, which remains January 18, 2018 (i.e., one year after original publication date of ICT final rule). Pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553), the Access Board generally provides interested parties the opportunity to comment on proposed regulations and publishes rules not less than 30 days before their effective dates. However, the APA provides that an agency is not required to conduct notice-andcomment rulemaking or delay effective dates when the agency, for good cause, finds that these procedural requirements would be impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3). Here, a oneday postponement of the effective date of the ICT final rule, as called for in the January 20 memorandum, would neither delay the final rule’s implementation to any material degree nor alter the VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:48 Mar 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 originally-established compliance date for the Revised 508 Standards. Accordingly, because a one-day delay in the effective date of the ICT final rule will have no material impact on its implementation, the Access Board finds that good cause exists to exempt the instant rule from notice-and-comment requirements. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Additionally, because a one-day postponement of the ICT final rule’s originally-published effective date will have no substantive impact, the instant rule is being made effective upon publication in the Federal Register and, in any event, a 30-day delay in its effective date would be impracticable and unnecessary in these circumstances. See 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) (exempting substantive rules from requisite 30-day delay in effective date upon finding of good cause). David M. Capozzi, Executive Director.

ACTION: Temporary rule; annual adjustment of Atlantic bluefin tuna Purse Seine and Reserve category quotas; inseason quota transfer from the Reserve category to the Longline category. AGENCY: NMFS is adjusting the Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) Purse Seine and Reserve category quotas for 2017, as it does annually. NMFS is also transferring inseason 45 metric tons (mt) of BFT quota from the Reserve category to the Longline category. This action is based on consideration of the regulatory determination criteria regarding inseason adjustments. NMFS has decided that the transfer to the Longline category will be distributed to permitted Atlantic Tunas Longline vessels with recent fishing activity, rather than to all qualified Individual Bluefin Quota (IBQ) SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 shares recipients. As a result of this transfer, the associated IBQ accounts will each receive 1,102 lb (0.5 mt) of IBQ. DATES: Effective February 28, 2017, through December 31, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sarah McLaughlin, Tom Warren, or Brad McHale, 978–281–9260, or Carrie Soltanoff, 301–427–8503. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations implemented under the authority of the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act (ATCA; 16 U.S.C. 971 et seq.) and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act; 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.) governing the harvest of BFT by persons and vessels subject to U.S. jurisdiction are found at 50 CFR part 635. Section 635.27 subdivides the U.S. BFT quota recommended by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) among the various domestic fishing categories, per the allocations established in the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan (2006 Consolidated HMS FMP) (71 FR 58058, October 2, 2006), as amended by Amendment 7 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP (Amendment 7) (79 FR 71510, December 2, 2014). NMFS is required under ATCA and the Magnuson-Stevens Act to provide U.S. fishing vessels with a reasonable opportunity to harvest the ICCATrecommended quota. Annual Adjustment of the BFT Purse Seine and Reserve Category Quotas In 2015, NMFS implemented a final rule that increased the U.S. BFT quota and subquotas consistent with ICCAT Recommendation 14–05 (80 FR 52198, August 28, 2015). As a result, based on the currently codified U.S. quota of 1,058.79 mt (not including the 25 mt allocated by ICCAT to the United States to account for bycatch of BFT in pelagic longline fisheries in the Northeast Distant Gear Restricted Area), the baseline Purse Seine, Longline, and Reserve category quotas are codified as 184.3 mt, 148.3 mt, and 24.8 mt, respectively. See § 635.27(a). Pursuant to § 635.27(a)(4), NMFS has determined the amount of quota available to individual Atlantic Tunas Purse Seine category participants in 2017, based on their BFT catch (landings and dead discards) in 2016. In accordance with the regulations, NMFS is making available to each Purse Seine category participant either 100 percent, 75 percent, 50 percent, or 25 percent of the individual baseline quota E:\FR\FM\02MRR1.SGM 02MRR1

36 CFR Parts 1193 and 1194

RIN 3014-AA37


Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Standards and 
Guidelines

AGENCY: Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board.

ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date.

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

SUMMARY: The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board 
(Access Board) is briefly postponing the effective date of its 
recently-promulgated final rule that establishes revised accessibility 
standards and guidelines for information and communication technology 
(ICT). The ICT final rule was published in the Federal Register on 
January 18, 2017, and is scheduled to become effective on March 20, 
2017. A brief postponement of this effective date is necessitated by 
the memorandum from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, 
entitled ``Regulatory Freeze Pending Review'' (Jan. 20, 2017), which 
generally calls on Federal agencies to delay the effective dates of 
published, but not-yet-effective, final rules for 60 days from the date 
of the memorandum. The ICT final rule will take effect on March 21, 
2017.

DATES: The effective date of the final rule published on January 18, 
2017 at 82 FR 5790 is delayed to March 21, 2017. However, compliance 
with the section 508-based standards is not required until January 18, 
2018, which is one year after the final rule's original publication 
date. Compliance with the section 255-based guidelines is not required 
until the guidelines are adopted by the Federal Communications 
Commission. The incorporation by reference of certain publications 
listed in the final rule published on January 18, 2017 at 82 FR 5790 is 
approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of March 21, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 18, 2017, the Access Board issued 
a final rule that revised and

[[Page 12296]]

updated, in a single rulemaking, our existing standards for information 
and technology (ICT) covered by section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act 
of 1973 (which includes, among other things, ICT developed, procured, 
maintained, or used by Federal agencies) (hereafter, ``Revised 508 
Standards''), and our existing guidelines for telecommunications 
equipment and customer premises equipment covered by Section 255 of the 
Communications Act of 1934 (hereafter, ``Revised 255 Guidelines.''). 
See Information and Communication Technology Standards and Guidelines, 
82 FR 5790 (Jan. 18, 2017) (to be codified at 36 CFR parts 1193 and 
1194). The published notice for the ICT final rule provided that the 
rule would take effect on March 20, 2017.
    Subsequently, on January 20, 2017, the Assistant to the President 
and Chief of Staff, issued a memorandum entitled ``Regulatory Freeze 
Pending Review.'' This memorandum instructed Federal departments and 
agencies, among other things, to temporarily postpone for 60 days 
(dating from the date of the memorandum) the effective dates of their 
respective regulations that had been published in the Federal Register 
but were not yet effective.
    In accordance with the January 20 memorandum, the Access Board is 
briefly postponing the effective date of the ICT final rule until March 
21, 2017, which represents a one-day delay in the effective date of 
this final rule relative to its originally-scheduled effective date. 
There is no change to the substance of the Revised 508 Standards or 
Revised 255 Guidelines. Nor does this brief postponement of the 
effective date alter the compliance date for certain ICT covered by the 
Revised 508 Standards, which remains January 18, 2018 (i.e., one year 
after original publication date of ICT final rule).
    Pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553), 
the Access Board generally provides interested parties the opportunity 
to comment on proposed regulations and publishes rules not less than 30 
days before their effective dates. However, the APA provides that an 
agency is not required to conduct notice-and-comment rulemaking or 
delay effective dates when the agency, for good cause, finds that these 
procedural requirements would be impracticable, unnecessary, or 
contrary to the public interest. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3). 
Here, a one-day postponement of the effective date of the ICT final 
rule, as called for in the January 20 memorandum, would neither delay 
the final rule's implementation to any material degree nor alter the 
originally-established compliance date for the Revised 508 Standards. 
Accordingly, because a one-day delay in the effective date of the ICT 
final rule will have no material impact on its implementation, the 
Access Board finds that good cause exists to exempt the instant rule 
from notice-and-comment requirements. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). 
Additionally, because a one-day postponement of the ICT final rule's 
originally-published effective date will have no substantive impact, 
the instant rule is being made effective upon publication in the 
Federal Register and, in any event, a 30-day delay in its effective 
date would be impracticable and unnecessary in these circumstances. See 
5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) (exempting substantive rules from requisite 30-day 
delay in effective date upon finding of good cause).
