ACTION: Final rule; correction. AGENCY: The FAA is correcting a final rule published on April 10, 2017. In that rule, the FAA amended its regulations to provide the 2017 inflation adjustment to civil penalty amounts that may be imposed for violations of FAA regulations and the Hazardous Materials Regulations, as required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. It also finalized the catch-up inflation adjustment interim final rule required by the same Act. The FAA inadvertently stated the effective date for the new maximums/minimums was January 15, 2017, instead of April 10, 2017. This document amends the FAA’s regulations to correct that error.

In the regulatory text, the FAA inadvertently stated the effective date for the new maximums/minimums was January 15, 2017. However, the FAA intended only to apply the newly inflated maximums/minimums for violations occurring on or after April 10, 2017. Therefore, the FAA amends § 13.301(c) to reflect the intended date of April 10, 2017. PART 13—INVESTIGATIVE AND ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class E airspace at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA, and Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, and establishes Class E airspace at Murray Field, Eureka, CA. History On March 28, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 15306) Docket FAA–2015–6751 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA; and Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, and establish Class E airspace at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA; and Murray Field Airport, Eureka, CA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:43 Jul 06, 2017 Jkt 241001 The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E surface area airspace at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA, and Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, and establishing Class E airspace designated as an extension at Arcata Airport. Also, stand-alone Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is established at Murray Field Airport, Eureka, CA. This airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at these airports, and for efficiency within the National Airspace System. Class E surface area airspace is amended at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA, to within a 4.1 mile radius (increased from a 4-mile radius) of the airport; and the Abeta NDB is removed from the description as it was decommissioned and no longer needed. Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area is established within 2.9 miles each side of the 153° bearing from Arcata Airport extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 10.5 miles southeast of the airport. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is reduced to within a 7-mile radius of Arcata Airport, with a segment 4.2 miles wide (2.1 miles each side of the 153° bearing) extending from the 7-mile radius of the airport to 14.1 miles southeast of the airport. Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Arcata Airport is removed, since this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley Class E en route airspace area. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Murray Field Airport, Eureka, CA, is established within a 6.3-mile radius of Murray Field Airport, with a segment 6.3 miles wide extending to 23 miles southwest of the airport. This airspace area specifically supports IFR operations at Eureka, CA. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, is amended to within a 2.7-mile radius (from a 6.5-mile radius) of Rohnerville Airport, with segments extending 7 miles northwest, 5.2 miles west, and 6.1 miles southeast of the airport. Class E airspace upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Rohnerville Airport is removed since this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley Class E en route airspace area. This action also updates the geographic coordinates for the amended airports in the associated airspace areas PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 31441 to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

This final rule revises thirteen Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs), adds one ECCN, revises two EAR defined terms (including making other EAR conforming changes for the use of these two terms) and makes conforming EAR changes where needed to implement the changes that were agreed to at the meetings and to better align the missile technology (MT) controls on the Commerce Control List (CCL) with the MTCR Annex.

SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sharon Bragonje, Nuclear and Missile Technology Controls Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Phone: (202) 482–0434; Email: sharon.bragonje@ bis.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR or Regime) is an export control arrangement among 35 nations, including most of the world’s suppliers of advanced missiles and missile-related equipment, materials, software and technology. The regime establishes a common list of controlled items (the Annex) and a common export control policy (the Guidelines) that member countries implement in accordance with their national export controls. The MTCR seeks to limit the risk of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction by controlling exports of goods and technologies that could make PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 a contribution to delivery systems (other than manned aircraft) for such weapons. In 1993, the MTCR’s original focus on missiles for nuclear weapons delivery was expanded to include the proliferation of missiles for the delivery of all types of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), i.e., nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. Such proliferation has been identified as a threat to international peace and security. One way to address this threat is to maintain vigilance over the transfer of missile equipment, material, and related technologies usable for systems capable of delivering WMD. MTCR members voluntarily pledge to adopt the Regime’s export Guidelines and to restrict the export of items contained in the Regime’s Annex. The Regime’s Guidelines are implemented through the national export control laws, regulations and policies of the regime members. Amendments to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) This final rule revises the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to reflect changes to the MTCR Annex agreed to at the October 2016 Plenary in Busan, South Korea, and changes resulting from the March 2016 Technical Experts Meeting (TEM) in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. References are provided below for the MTCR Annex changes agreed to at the meetings that correspond to the EAR revisions described below. This rule also makes changes to the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 of the EAR) and to other EAR provisions in order to conform with the MTCR Annex. All of the changes in this final rule align the MT controls on the CCL and other parts of the EAR with the MTCR Annex. In the discussion below, BIS identifies the origin of each change in the regulatory text of this final rule by using one the following parenthetical phrases: (Busan 2016 Plenary), (Luxembourg 2016 TEM), or (Conforming Change to MTCR Annex). § 742.5 (Missile technology). In § 742.5 (Missile technology), this final rule revises the first sentence of paragraph (a)(2), which describes the definition of ‘‘missiles.’’ The term ‘‘missiles’’ is a defined term in § 772.1, but for ease of reference the first sentence of this paragraph (a)(2) restates the definition. As described in the paragraphs below, this final rule revises the definitions of ‘‘missiles’’ and ‘‘unmanned aerial vehicles’’ in § 772.1 of the EAR, so conforming changes are needed in §§ 742.5 and 744.3, as described below. Conforming Change to § 742.5(a)(2). This final rule makes conforming changes in paragraph (a)(2) of § 742.5, E:\FR\FM\07JYR1.SGM 07JYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it amends Class E airspace at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA, and 
Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, and establishes Class E airspace at 
Murray Field, Eureka, CA.

History

    On March 28, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 
15306) Docket FAA-2015-6751 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to 
amend Class E airspace at Arcata Airport, Arcata, CA; and Rohnerville 
Airport, Fortuna, CA, and establish Class E airspace at Arcata Airport, 
Arcata, CA; and Murray Field Airport, Eureka, CA. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 
6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A dated August 3, 
2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying Class E surface area airspace at Arcata Airport, 
Arcata, CA, and Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, and establishing 
Class E airspace designated as an extension at Arcata Airport. Also, 
stand-alone Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface is established at Murray Field Airport, Eureka, CA. This 
airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of IFR 
operations at these airports, and for efficiency within the National 
Airspace System.
    Class E surface area airspace is amended at Arcata Airport, Arcata, 
CA, to within a 4.1 mile radius (increased from a 4-mile radius) of the 
airport; and the Abeta NDB is removed from the description as it was 
decommissioned and no longer needed.
    Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E 
surface area is established within 2.9 miles each side of the 153[deg] 
bearing from Arcata Airport extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 10.5 
miles southeast of the airport.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
is reduced to within a 7-mile radius of Arcata Airport, with a segment 
4.2 miles wide (2.1 miles each side of the 153[deg] bearing) extending 
from the 7-mile radius of the airport to 14.1 miles southeast of the 
airport. Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the 
surface at Arcata Airport is removed, since this airspace is wholly 
contained within the Rogue Valley Class E en route airspace area.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Murray Field Airport, Eureka, CA, is established within a 6.3-mile 
radius of Murray Field Airport, with a segment 6.3 miles wide extending 
to 23 miles southwest of the airport. This airspace area specifically 
supports IFR operations at Eureka, CA.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Rohnerville Airport, Fortuna, CA, is amended to within a 2.7-mile 
radius (from a 6.5-mile radius) of Rohnerville Airport, with segments 
extending 7 miles northwest, 5.2 miles west, and 6.1 miles southeast of 
the airport. Class E airspace upward from 1,200 feet above the surface 
at Rohnerville Airport is removed since this airspace is wholly 
contained within the Rogue Valley Class E en route airspace area.
    This action also updates the geographic coordinates for the amended 
airports in the associated airspace areas to be in concert with the 
FAA's aeronautical database.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the
