Download as PDF 18220 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 18, 2017 / Rules and Regulations Dated: April 13, 2017. Matthew S. Borman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Export Administration. 15 CFR Part 950 and seven World Data Centers. These centers respond to over 2,000,000 requests for these data and products annually from over 70 countries. This collection of environmental data and products is growing rapidly, both in size and sophistication, and as a result the associated costs have increased. Users have the ability to access the data offline, online and through the NESDIS e-Commerce System (NeS) online store. Our ability to provide data, information, products and services depends on user fees. [Docket No. 161107999–6999–01] Fee Schedule RIN 0648–BG39 In an October 22, 2015, final rule (80 FR 63914), NESDIS established a new schedule of fees for the sale of its data, information, and related products and services to users (‘‘October 2015 Fee Schedule Rule’’). NESDIS revised the fee schedule that had been in effect since 2013 to ensure that the fees accurately reflect the costs of providing access to the environmental data, information, and related products and services. NESDIS will continue to review the user fees periodically, and will revise such fees as necessary. Any future changes in the user fees and their effective date will be announced through notice in the Federal Register.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: In this final rule, NESDIS adds a new service/product to the NESDIS FY 2017 schedule of fees for the sale of its data, information, and related products and services to users. NESDIS is authorized under the United States Code to assess fees, up to fair market value, for access to environmental data, information, and products derived from, collected, and/or archived by NOAA. This action adds a new user fee for a data product titled, High Definition Geomagnetic Model—Real Time. DATES: Effective May 18, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Hodges (301) 713–7064. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background NESDIS operates NOAA’s National Center for Environmental Information (NCEI). Through NCEI, NESDIS provides and ensures timely access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources, provides information services, and develops science products. NESDIS maintains some 1,300 databases containing over 2,400 environmental variables at NCEI schedule of fees but rather the addition of one new fee. Classification This rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of E.O. 12866. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking and the opportunity for public comment are inapplicable because this rule falls within the public property exception of subparagraph (a)(2) of section 553, as it relates only to the assessment of fees, as authorized by 15 U.S.C. 1534, that accurately reflect the costs of providing access to publicly available environmental data, information, and related products. Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for this rule. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule under 5 U.S.C. 553 or by any other law, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable. Accordingly, no Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is required and none has been prepared. List of Subjects in 15 CFR Part 950 Organization and functions (government agencies). Need for Addition High Definition Geomagnetic Model— Real Time accurately models the magnetic fields originating in the Earth’s magnetosphere in real-time using a combination of solar-wind observing satellites situated between Earth and sun and a chain of geomagnetic observatories on the Earth’s surface. We are adding a new user fee for this data product—High Definition Geomagnetic Model—Real Time—to the current user fee schedule. Accordingly, Appendix A to Part 950—Schedule of User Fees for Access to NOAA Environmental Data includes the user fees established in October 2015 and the new fee established by this final rule: High Definition Geomagnetic Model— Real Time Fee. In addition, NESDIS has deleted the New Fee column in Appendix A to avoid confusion given that this final rule is not issuing a new Dated: April 5, 2017.

Schedule of Fees for Access to NOAA Environmental Data, 
Information, and Related Products and Services

AGENCY: National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service 
(NESDIS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 
Department of Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: In this final rule, NESDIS adds a new service/product to the 
NESDIS FY 2017 schedule of fees for the sale of its data, information, 
and related products and services to users. NESDIS is authorized under 
the United States Code to assess fees, up to fair market value, for 
access to environmental data, information, and products derived from, 
collected, and/or archived by NOAA. This action adds a new user fee for 
a data product titled, High Definition Geomagnetic Model--Real Time.

DATES: Effective May 18, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Hodges (301) 713-7064.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    NESDIS operates NOAA's National Center for Environmental 
Information (NCEI). Through NCEI, NESDIS provides and ensures timely 
access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources, 
provides information services, and develops science products. NESDIS 
maintains some 1,300 databases containing over 2,400 environmental 
variables at NCEI and seven World Data Centers. These centers respond 
to over 2,000,000 requests for these data and products annually from 
over 70 countries. This collection of environmental data and products 
is growing rapidly, both in size and sophistication, and as a result 
the associated costs have increased.
    Users have the ability to access the data offline, online and 
through the NESDIS e-Commerce System (NeS) online store. Our ability to 
provide data, information, products and services depends on user fees.

Fee Schedule

    In an October 22, 2015, final rule (80 FR 63914), NESDIS 
established a new schedule of fees for the sale of its data, 
information, and related products and services to users (``October 2015 
Fee Schedule Rule''). NESDIS revised the fee schedule that had been in 
effect since 2013 to ensure that the fees accurately reflect the costs 
of providing access to the environmental data, information, and related 
products and services.
    NESDIS will continue to review the user fees periodically, and will 
revise such fees as necessary. Any future changes in the user fees and 
their effective date will be announced through notice in the Federal 
Register.

Need for Addition

    High Definition Geomagnetic Model--Real Time accurately models the 
magnetic fields originating in the Earth's magnetosphere in real-time 
using a combination of solar-wind observing satellites situated between 
Earth and sun and a chain of geomagnetic observatories on the Earth's 
surface.
    We are adding a new user fee for this data product--High Definition 
Geomagnetic Model--Real Time--to the current user fee schedule. 
Accordingly, Appendix A to Part 950--Schedule of User Fees for Access 
to NOAA Environmental Data includes the user fees established in 
October 2015 and the new fee established by this final rule: High 
Definition Geomagnetic Model--Real Time Fee. In addition, NESDIS has 
deleted the New Fee column in Appendix A to avoid confusion given that 
this final rule is not issuing a new schedule of fees but rather the 
addition of one new fee.

Classification

    This rule has been determined to be not significant for purposes of 
E.O. 12866. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 
U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking and the opportunity 
for public comment are inapplicable because this rule falls within the 
public property exception of subparagraph (a)(2) of section 553, as it 
relates only to the assessment of fees, as authorized by 15 U.S.C. 
1534, that accurately reflect the costs of providing access to publicly 
available environmental data, information, and related products. 
Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and 
an opportunity for public comment be given for this rule. Because a 
notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are 
not required to be given for this rule under 5 U.S.C. 553 or by any 
other law, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 
601 et seq.) are not applicable. Accordingly, no Regulatory Flexibility 
Analysis is required and none has been prepared.
