For the reasons stated in the preamble and under the authority contained in 15 U.S.C. 1123 and 35 U.S.C. 2, as amended, the Office amends part 2 of title 37 as follows: DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE United States Patent and Trademark Office Changes in Requirements for Collective Trademarks and Service Marks, Collective Membership Marks, and Certification Marks; Correction United States Patent and Trademark Office, Commerce. ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendment. AGENCY: PART 2—RULES OF PRACTICE IN TRADEMARK CASES The United States Patent and Trademark Office published in the Federal Register on June 11, 2015 a final rule, which became effective on July 11, 2015, revising the Trademark Rules of Practice. This document reinstates three paragraphs, which were inadvertently deleted as a result of an error in the amendatory instructions. DATES: This rule is effective January 12, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Cain, Office of the Deputy Commissioner for Trademark Examination Policy, by email at TMFRNotices@uspto.gov, or by telephone at (571) 272–8946. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The USPTO issues this final rule to correct an inadvertent error in § 2.193(e)(1) of its June 11, 2015 final rule revising the Trademark Rules of Practice (80 FR 33170) (published under RIN 0651– AC89). The June 11, 2015 final rule amended the introductory text of § 2.193(e)(1) to correspond with new § 2.2(n). However, the amendatory instruction inadvertently instructed that § 2.193(e)(1)(i)–(iii) be deleted. This correction revises the amendatory instruction and thereby reinstates paragraphs (i)–(iii). This rule is issued without prior notice and opportunity for comment as this correction is procedural/ interpretative in nature, and is being implemented to avoid inconsistencies and confusion with the rule issued on June 11, 2015. Additionally, as this correction rule is nonsubstantive, it is effective immediately upon publication. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: Rulemaking Requirements Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review): This rulemaking has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

ACTION: Direct final rule; delegation of authority. AGENCY: The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has submitted updated regulations for receiving delegation of the EPA authority for implementation and enforcement of National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) for all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources). These regulations apply to certain NESHAPs promulgated by the EPA, as amended between April 24, 2013 and August 3, 2016. The delegation of authority under this action does not apply to sources located in Indian Country. The EPA is taking direct final action to approve the delegation of certain NESHAPs to TCEQ. SUMMARY: This rule is effective on March 13, 2018 without further notice, unless the EPA receives relevant adverse comment by February 12, 2018. If the EPA receives such comment, the EPA will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that this rule will not take effect.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES I. What does this action do? The EPA is taking direct final action to approve the delegation of certain NESHAPs to TCEQ. With this delegation, TCEQ has the primary responsibility to implement and enforce the delegated standards. See sections V and VI, below, for a discussion of which standards are being delegated and which are not being delegated. II. What is the authority for delegation? Section 112(l) of the CAA, and 40 CFR part 63, subpart E, authorizes the EPA to delegate authority to any State or local agency which submits adequate regulatory procedures for VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:52 Jan 11, 2018 Jkt 244001 implementation and enforcement of emission standards for hazardous air pollutants. The hazardous air pollutant standards are codified at 40 CFR part 63. III. What criteria must Texas’ program meet to be approved? Section 112(l)(5) of the CAA enables the EPA to approve State air toxics programs or rules to operate in place of the Federal air toxics program or rules. 40 CFR part 63, subpart E (subpart E) governs the EPA’s approval of State rules or programs under section 112(l). The EPA will approve an air toxics program if we find that: (1) The State program is ‘‘no less stringent’’ than the corresponding Federal program or rule; (2) The State has adequate authority and resources to implement the program; (3) The schedule for implementation and compliance is sufficiently expeditious; and (4) The program otherwise complies with Federal guidance. In order to obtain approval of its program to implement and enforce Federal section 112 rules as promulgated without changes (straight delegation), only the criteria of 40 CFR 63.91(d) must be met. 40 CFR 63.91(d)(3) provides that interim or final Title V program approval will satisfy the criteria of 40 CFR 63.91(d) for part 70 sources (sources required to obtain operating permits pursuant to Title V of the Clean Air Act). The NESHAPs delegation was most recently approved on November 25, 2014 (79 FR 70102). IV. How did TCEQ meet the subpart E approval criteria? As part of its Title V submission, TCEQ stated that it intended to use the mechanism of incorporation by reference to adopt unchanged Federal section 112 standards into its regulations. This commitment applied to both existing and future standards as they applied to part 70 sources ((60 FR 30444 (June 7, 1995) and 61 FR 32699 (June 25, 1996)). On December 6, 2001, the EPA promulgated final full approval of the State’s operating permits program effective November 30, 2001 (66 FR 63318). TCEQ was originally delegated the authority to implement certain NESHAPs effective May 17, 2005 (70 FR 13108). Under 40 CFR 63.91(d)(2), once a State has satisfied up-front approval criteria, it needs only to reference the previous demonstration and reaffirm that it still meets the criteria for any subsequent submittals. TCEQ has affirmed that it still meets the up-front approval criteria. PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 V. What is being delegated? By letter dated January 12, 2017, TCEQ requested the EPA to update its existing NESHAP delegation. With certain exceptions noted in section VI below, TCEQ requests delegation of certain Part 63 NESHAPs for all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources). TCEQ’s request included newly incorporated NESHAPs promulgated by the EPA and amendments to existing standards currently delegated, as amended between April 24, 2013 and August 3, 2016. These NESHAP were adopted by TCEQ on December 7, 2016. VI. What is not being delegated? The EPA cannot delegate to a State any of the Category II Subpart A authorities set forth in 40 CFR 63.91(g)(2). These include the following provisions: § 63.6(g), Approval of Alternative Non-Opacity Standards; § 63.6(h)(9), Approval of Alternative Opacity Standards; § 63.7(e)(2)(ii) and (f), Approval of Major Alternatives to Test Methods; § 63.8(f), Approval of Major Alternatives to Monitoring; and § 63.10(f), Approval of Major Alternatives to Recordkeeping and Reporting. In addition, some Part 63 standards have certain provisions that cannot be delegated to the States. Therefore, any Part 63 standard that the EPA is delegating to TCEQ that provides that certain authorities cannot be delegated are retained by the EPA and not delegated. Furthermore, no authorities are delegated that require rulemaking in the Federal Register to implement, or where Federal overview is the only way to ensure national consistency in the application of the standards or requirements of CAA section 112. Finally, section 112(r), the accidental release program authority, is not being delegated by this approval. All of the inquiries and requests concerning implementation and enforcement of the excluded standards in the State of Texas should be directed to the EPA Region 6 Office. In addition, this delegation to TCEQ to implement and enforce certain NESHAPs does not extend to sources or activities located in Indian country, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. Under this definition, the EPA treats as reservations, trust lands validly set aside for the use of a Tribe even if the trust lands have not been formally designated as a reservation. Consistent with previous federal program approvals or delegations, the EPA will continue to implement the NESHAPs in Indian country because TCEQ has not submitted information to demonstrate authority over sources and activities E:\FR\FM\12JAR1.SGM 12JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 9 / Friday, January 12, 2018 / Rules and Regulations located within the exterior boundaries of Indian reservations and other areas in Indian country. VII. How will applicability determinations under section 112 be made? In approving this delegation, TCEQ will seek concurrence from the EPA on any matter involving the interpretation of section 112 of the CAA or 40 CFR part 63 to the extent that application, implementation, administration, or enforcement of these sections have not been covered by the EPA determinations or guidance. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES VIII. What authority does the EPA have? We retain the right, as provided by CAA section 112(l)(7), to enforce any applicable emission standard or requirement under section 112. The EPA also has the authority to make certain decisions under the General Provisions (subpart A) of part 63. We are granting TCEQ some of these authorities, and retaining others, as explained in sections V and VI above. In addition, the EPA may review and disapprove of State determinations and subsequently require corrections. (See 40 CFR 63.91(g) and 65 FR 55810, 55823, September 14, 2000, as amended at 70 FR 59887, October 13, 2005; 72 FR 27443, May 16, 2007.) Furthermore, we retain any authority in an individual emission standard that may not be delegated according to provisions of the standard. Also, listed in the footnotes of the part 63 delegation table at the end of this rule are the authorities that cannot be delegated to any State or local agency which we therefore retain. IX. What information must TCEQ provide to the EPA? TCEQ must provide any additional compliance related information to the EPA, Region 6, Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance within 45 days of a request under 40 CFR 63.96(a). In receiving delegation for specific General Provisions authorities, TCEQ must submit to the EPA Region 6 on a semi-annual basis, copies of determinations issued under these authorities. For part 63 standards, these determinations include: Section 63.1, Applicability Determinations; Section 63.6(e), Operation and Maintenance Requirements—Responsibility for Determining Compliance; Section 63.6(f), Compliance with Non-Opacity Standards—Responsibility for Determining Compliance; Section 63.6(h), Compliance with Opacity and Visible Emissions Standards— VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:52 Jan 11, 2018 Jkt 244001 Responsibility for Determining Compliance; Sections 63.7(c)(2)(i) and (d), Approval of Site-Specific Test Plans; Section 63.7(e)(2)(i), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Test Methods; Section 63.7(e)(2)(ii) and (f), Approval of Intermediate Alternatives to Test Methods; Section 63.7(e)(iii), Approval of Shorter Sampling Times and Volumes When Necessitated by Process Variables or Other Factors; Sections 63.7(e)(2)(iv), (h)(2), and (h)(3), Waiver of Performance Testing; Sections 63.8(c)(1) and (e)(1), Approval of Site-Specific Performance Evaluation (Monitoring) Test Plans; Section 63.8(f), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Monitoring; Section 63.8(f), Approval of Intermediate Alternatives to Monitoring; Section 63.9 and 63.10, Approval of Adjustments to Time Periods for Submitting Reports; Section 63.10(f), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Recordkeeping and Reporting; Section 63.7(a)(4), Extension of Performance Test Deadline. X. What is the EPA’s oversight role? The EPA must oversee TCEQ’s decisions to ensure the delegated authorities are being adequately implemented and enforced. We will integrate oversight of the delegated authorities into the existing mechanisms and resources for oversight currently in place. If, during oversight, we determine that TCEQ made decisions that decreased the stringency of the delegated standards, then TCEQ shall be required to take corrective actions and the source(s) affected by the decisions will be notified, as required by 40 CFR 63.91(g)(1)(ii). We will initiate withdrawal of the program or rule if the corrective actions taken are insufficient. XI. Should sources submit notices to the EPA or TCEQ? For the NESHAPs being delegated and included in the table below, all of the information required pursuant to the general provisions and the relevant subpart of the Federal NESHAP (40 CFR part 63) should be submitted by sources located outside of Indian country, directly to TCEQ at the following address: Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Office of Permitting, Remediation and Registration, Air Permits Division (MC 163), P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711–3087. TCEQ is the primary point of contact with respect to delegated NESHAPs. Sources do not need to send a copy to the EPA. The EPA Region 6 waives the requirement that notifications and reports for delegated standards be submitted to the EPA in addition to TCEQ in accordance with 40 PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 1561 CFR 63.9(a)(4)(ii) and 63.10(a)(4)(ii).1 For those standards that are not delegated, sources must continue to submit all appropriate information to the EPA. XII. How will unchanged authorities be delegated to TCEQ in the future? In the future, TCEQ will only need to send a letter of request to the EPA, Region 6, for NESHAP regulations that TCEQ has adopted by reference. The letter must reference the previous upfront approval demonstration and reaffirm that it still meets the up-front approval criteria. We will respond in writing to the request stating that the request for delegation is either granted or denied. A Federal Register action will be published to inform the public and affected sources of the delegation, indicate where source notifications and reports should be sent, and to amend the relevant portions of the Code of Federal Regulations showing which NESHAP standards have been delegated to TCEQ. XIII. Final Action The public was provided the opportunity to comment on the proposed approval of the program and mechanism for delegation of section 112 standards, as they apply to part 70 sources, on June 7, 1995, for the proposed interim approval of TCEQ’s Title V operating permits program; and on October 11, 2001, for the proposed final approval of TCEQ’s Title V operating permits program. In the EPA’s final full approval of Texas’ Operating Permits Program on December 6, 2001 (66 FR 63318), the EPA discussed the public comments on the proposed final delegation of the Title V operating permits program. In today’s action, the public is given the opportunity to comment on the approval of TCEQ’s request for delegation of authority to implement and enforce certain section 112 standards for all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources) which have been adopted by reference into Texas’ state regulations. However, the Agency views the approval of these requests as a noncontroversial action and anticipates no adverse comments. Therefore, the EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal. However, in the ‘‘Proposed Rules’’ section of this issue of the Federal Register, the EPA is publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the 1 This waiver only extends to the submission of copies of notifications and reports; EPA does not waive the requirements in delegated standards that require notifications and reports be submitted to an electronic database (e.g., 40 CFR part 63, subpart HHHHHHH).

This action will be effective March 13, 2018 without further notice unless the Agency receives relevant adverse comments by February 12, 2018. If the EPA receives relevant adverse comments, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public the rule will not take effect. We will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if we receive relevant adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of a relevant adverse comment. XIV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this action is not significant under Executive Order 12866. This action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this rule approves preexisting requirements under state law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4). The EPA believes that this action does not have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority populations, lowincome populations and/or indigenous peoples, as specified in Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). The delegation is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land or VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:52 Jan 11, 2018 Jkt 244001 in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian country, the rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor will it impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. This action also does not have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely approves a state request to receive delegation of certain Federal standards, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. In reviewing delegation submissions, the EPA’s role is to approve submissions, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), the EPA has no authority to disapprove a delegation submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for the EPA to use VCS in place of a delegation submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. The EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by March 13, 2018. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2)).

40 CFR Part 63

[EPA-R06-OAR-2017-0061; FRL-9972-28-Region 6]


National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants; 
Delegation of Authority to Texas

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule; delegation of authority.

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

SUMMARY: The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has 
submitted updated regulations for receiving delegation of the EPA 
authority for implementation and enforcement of National Emission 
Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) for all sources (both

NESHAPs promulgated by the EPA, as amended between April 24, 2013 and 
August 3, 2016. The delegation of authority under this action does not 
apply to sources located in Indian Country. The EPA is taking direct 
final action to approve the delegation of certain NESHAPs to TCEQ.

DATES: This rule is effective on March 13, 2018 without further notice, 
unless the EPA receives relevant adverse comment by February 12, 2018. 
If the EPA receives such comment, the EPA will publish a timely 
withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that this rule 
will not take effect.

I. What does this action do?

    The EPA is taking direct final action to approve the delegation of 
certain NESHAPs to TCEQ. With this delegation, TCEQ has the primary 
responsibility to implement and enforce the delegated standards. See 
sections V and VI, below, for a discussion of which standards are being 
delegated and which are not being delegated.

II. What is the authority for delegation?

    Section 112(l) of the CAA, and 40 CFR part 63, subpart E, 
authorizes the EPA to delegate authority to any State or local agency 
which submits adequate regulatory procedures for implementation and 
enforcement of emission standards for hazardous air pollutants. The 
hazardous air pollutant standards are codified at 40 CFR part 63.

III. What criteria must Texas' program meet to be approved?

    Section 112(l)(5) of the CAA enables the EPA to approve State air 
toxics programs or rules to operate in place of the Federal air toxics 
program or rules. 40 CFR part 63, subpart E (subpart E) governs the 
EPA's approval of State rules or programs under section 112(l).
    The EPA will approve an air toxics program if we find that:
    (1) The State program is ``no less stringent'' than the 
corresponding Federal program or rule;
    (2) The State has adequate authority and resources to implement the 
program;
    (3) The schedule for implementation and compliance is sufficiently 
expeditious; and
    (4) The program otherwise complies with Federal guidance.
    In order to obtain approval of its program to implement and enforce 
Federal section 112 rules as promulgated without changes (straight 
delegation), only the criteria of 40 CFR 63.91(d) must be met. 40 CFR 
63.91(d)(3) provides that interim or final Title V program approval 
will satisfy the criteria of 40 CFR 63.91(d) for part 70 sources 
(sources required to obtain operating permits pursuant to Title V of 
the Clean Air Act). The NESHAPs delegation was most recently approved 
on November 25, 2014 (79 FR 70102).

IV. How did TCEQ meet the subpart E approval criteria?

    As part of its Title V submission, TCEQ stated that it intended to 
use the mechanism of incorporation by reference to adopt unchanged 
Federal section 112 standards into its regulations. This commitment 
applied to both existing and future standards as they applied to part 
70 sources ((60 FR 30444 (June 7, 1995) and 61 FR 32699 (June 25, 
1996)). On December 6, 2001, the EPA promulgated final full approval of 
the State's operating permits program effective November 30, 2001 (66 
FR 63318). TCEQ was originally delegated the authority to implement 
certain NESHAPs effective May 17, 2005 (70 FR 13108). Under 40 CFR 
63.91(d)(2), once a State has satisfied up-front approval criteria, it 
needs only to reference the previous demonstration and reaffirm that it 
still meets the criteria for any subsequent submittals. TCEQ has 
affirmed that it still meets the up-front approval criteria.

V. What is being delegated?

    By letter dated January 12, 2017, TCEQ requested the EPA to update 
its existing NESHAP delegation. With certain exceptions noted in 
section VI below, TCEQ requests delegation of certain Part 63 NESHAPs 
for all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources). TCEQ's request 
included newly incorporated NESHAPs promulgated by the EPA and 
amendments to existing standards currently delegated, as amended 
between April 24, 2013 and August 3, 2016. These NESHAP were adopted by 
TCEQ on December 7, 2016.

VI. What is not being delegated?

    The EPA cannot delegate to a State any of the Category II Subpart A 
authorities set forth in 40 CFR 63.91(g)(2). These include the 
following provisions: Sec.  63.6(g), Approval of Alternative Non-
Opacity Standards; Sec.  63.6(h)(9), Approval of Alternative Opacity 
Standards; Sec.  63.7(e)(2)(ii) and (f), Approval of Major Alternatives 
to Test Methods; Sec.  63.8(f), Approval of Major Alternatives to 
Monitoring; and Sec.  63.10(f), Approval of Major Alternatives to 
Recordkeeping and Reporting. In addition, some Part 63 standards have 
certain provisions that cannot be delegated to the States. Therefore, 
any Part 63 standard that the EPA is delegating to TCEQ that provides 
that certain authorities cannot be delegated are retained by the EPA 
and not delegated. Furthermore, no authorities are delegated that 
require rulemaking in the Federal Register to implement, or where 
Federal overview is the only way to ensure national consistency in the 
application of the standards or requirements of CAA section 112. 
Finally, section 112(r), the accidental release program authority, is 
not being delegated by this approval.
    All of the inquiries and requests concerning implementation and 
enforcement of the excluded standards in the State of Texas should be 
directed to the EPA Region 6 Office.
    In addition, this delegation to TCEQ to implement and enforce 
certain NESHAPs does not extend to sources or activities located in 
Indian country, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. Under this definition, 
the EPA treats as reservations, trust lands validly set aside for the 
use of a Tribe even if the trust lands have not been formally 
designated as a reservation. Consistent with previous federal program 
approvals or delegations, the EPA will continue to implement the 
NESHAPs in Indian country because TCEQ has not submitted information to 
demonstrate authority over sources and activities

[[Page 1561]]

located within the exterior boundaries of Indian reservations and other 
areas in Indian country.

VII. How will applicability determinations under section 112 be made?

    In approving this delegation, TCEQ will seek concurrence from the 
EPA on any matter involving the interpretation of section 112 of the 
CAA or 40 CFR part 63 to the extent that application, implementation, 
administration, or enforcement of these sections have not been covered 
by the EPA determinations or guidance.

VIII. What authority does the EPA have?

    We retain the right, as provided by CAA section 112(l)(7), to 
enforce any applicable emission standard or requirement under section 
112. The EPA also has the authority to make certain decisions under the 
General Provisions (subpart A) of part 63. We are granting TCEQ some of 
these authorities, and retaining others, as explained in sections V and 
VI above. In addition, the EPA may review and disapprove of State 
determinations and subsequently require corrections. (See 40 CFR 
63.91(g) and 65 FR 55810, 55823, September 14, 2000, as amended at 70 
FR 59887, October 13, 2005; 72 FR 27443, May 16, 2007.)
    Furthermore, we retain any authority in an individual emission 
standard that may not be delegated according to provisions of the 
standard. Also, listed in the footnotes of the part 63 delegation table 
at the end of this rule are the authorities that cannot be delegated to 
any State or local agency which we therefore retain.

IX. What information must TCEQ provide to the EPA?

    TCEQ must provide any additional compliance related information to 
the EPA, Region 6, Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance 
within 45 days of a request under 40 CFR 63.96(a). In receiving 
delegation for specific General Provisions authorities, TCEQ must 
submit to the EPA Region 6 on a semi-annual basis, copies of 
determinations issued under these authorities. For part 63 standards, 
these determinations include: Section 63.1, Applicability 
Determinations; Section 63.6(e), Operation and Maintenance 
Requirements--Responsibility for Determining Compliance; Section 
63.6(f), Compliance with Non-Opacity Standards--Responsibility for 
Determining Compliance; Section 63.6(h), Compliance with Opacity and 
Visible Emissions Standards--Responsibility for Determining Compliance; 
Sections 63.7(c)(2)(i) and (d), Approval of Site-Specific Test Plans; 
Section 63.7(e)(2)(i), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Test Methods; 
Section 63.7(e)(2)(ii) and (f), Approval of Intermediate Alternatives 
to Test Methods; Section 63.7(e)(iii), Approval of Shorter Sampling 
Times and Volumes When Necessitated by Process Variables or Other 
Factors; Sections 63.7(e)(2)(iv), (h)(2), and (h)(3), Waiver of 
Performance Testing; Sections 63.8(c)(1) and (e)(1), Approval of Site-
Specific Performance Evaluation (Monitoring) Test Plans; Section 
63.8(f), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Monitoring; Section 63.8(f), 
Approval of Intermediate Alternatives to Monitoring; Section 63.9 and 
63.10, Approval of Adjustments to Time Periods for Submitting Reports; 
Section 63.10(f), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Recordkeeping and 
Reporting; Section 63.7(a)(4), Extension of Performance Test Deadline.

X. What is the EPA's oversight role?

    The EPA must oversee TCEQ's decisions to ensure the delegated 
authorities are being adequately implemented and enforced. We will 
integrate oversight of the delegated authorities into the existing 
mechanisms and resources for oversight currently in place. If, during 
oversight, we determine that TCEQ made decisions that decreased the 
stringency of the delegated standards, then TCEQ shall be required to 
take corrective actions and the source(s) affected by the decisions 
will be notified, as required by 40 CFR 63.91(g)(1)(ii). We will 
initiate withdrawal of the program or rule if the corrective actions 
taken are insufficient.

XI. Should sources submit notices to the EPA or TCEQ?

    For the NESHAPs being delegated and included in the table below, 
all of the information required pursuant to the general provisions and 
the relevant subpart of the Federal NESHAP (40 CFR part 63) should be 
submitted by sources located outside of Indian country, directly to 
TCEQ at the following address: Texas Commission on Environmental 
Quality, Office of Permitting, Remediation and Registration, Air 
Permits Division (MC 163), P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087. 
TCEQ is the primary point of contact with respect to delegated NESHAPs. 
Sources do not need to send a copy to the EPA. The EPA Region 6 waives 
the requirement that notifications and reports for delegated standards 
be submitted to the EPA in addition to TCEQ in accordance with 40 CFR 
63.9(a)(4)(ii) and 63.10(a)(4)(ii).\1\ For those standards that are not 
delegated, sources must continue to submit all appropriate information 
to the EPA.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This waiver only extends to the submission of copies of 
notifications and reports; EPA does not waive the requirements in 
delegated standards that require notifications and reports be 
submitted to an electronic database (e.g., 40 CFR part 63, subpart 
HHHHHHH).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

XII. How will unchanged authorities be delegated to TCEQ in the future?

    In the future, TCEQ will only need to send a letter of request to 
the EPA, Region 6, for NESHAP regulations that TCEQ has adopted by 
reference. The letter must reference the previous up-front approval 
demonstration and reaffirm that it still meets the up-front approval 
criteria. We will respond in writing to the request stating that the 
request for delegation is either granted or denied. A Federal Register 
action will be published to inform the public and affected sources of 
the delegation, indicate where source notifications and reports should 
be sent, and to amend the relevant portions of the Code of Federal 
Regulations showing which NESHAP standards have been delegated to TCEQ.

XIII. Final Action

    The public was provided the opportunity to comment on the proposed 
approval of the program and mechanism for delegation of section 112 
standards, as they apply to part 70 sources, on June 7, 1995, for the 
proposed interim approval of TCEQ's Title V operating permits program; 
and on October 11, 2001, for the proposed final approval of TCEQ's 
Title V operating permits program. In the EPA's final full approval of 
Texas' Operating Permits Program on December 6, 2001 (66 FR 63318), the 
EPA discussed the public comments on the proposed final delegation of 
the Title V operating permits program. In today's action, the public is 
given the opportunity to comment on the approval of TCEQ's request for 
delegation of authority to implement and enforce certain section 112 
standards for all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources) which 
have been adopted by reference into Texas' state regulations. However, 
the Agency views the approval of these requests as a noncontroversial 
action and anticipates no adverse comments. Therefore, the EPA is 
publishing this rule without prior proposal. However, in the ``Proposed 
Rules'' section of this issue of the Federal Register, the EPA is 
publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to 
approve the

[[Page 1562]]

program and delegation of authority described in this action if 
relevant adverse comments are received. This action will be effective 
March 13, 2018 without further notice unless the Agency receives 
relevant adverse comments by February 12, 2018.
    If the EPA receives relevant adverse comments, we will publish a 
timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public the rule 
will not take effect. We will address all public comments in a 
subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. The EPA will not 
institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if 
we receive relevant adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or 
section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the 
remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the 
rule that are not the subject of a relevant adverse comment.

XIV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this 
action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' and therefore is not 
subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this 
reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, 
``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action 
is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this action 
is not significant under Executive Order 12866. This action merely 
approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no 
additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, 
the Administrator certifies that this rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this rule 
approves pre-existing requirements under state law and does not impose 
any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it 
does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely 
affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform 
Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4). The EPA believes that this action does not 
have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental 
effects on minority populations, low-income populations and/or 
indigenous peoples, as specified in Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, 
February 16, 1994).
    The delegation is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation 
land or in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has 
demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian 
country, the rule does not have tribal implications as specified by 
Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor will it 
impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal 
law.
    This action also does not have Federalism implications because it 
does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 
10, 1999). This action merely approves a state request to receive 
delegation of certain Federal standards, and does not alter the 
relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities 
established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to 
Executive Order 13045 ``Protection of Children from Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because 
it is not economically significant.
    In reviewing delegation submissions, the EPA's role is to approve 
submissions, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 
In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the 
State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), the EPA has no 
authority to disapprove a delegation submission for failure to use VCS. 
It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for the EPA to use 
VCS in place of a delegation submission that otherwise satisfies the 
provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 
12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 
(15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This rule does not impose an 
information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, 
to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the 
United States. The EPA will submit a report containing this rule and 
other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of 
Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior 
to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot 
take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal 
Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).
    Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for 
judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court 
of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by March 13, 2018. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial 
review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial 
review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such 
rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings 
to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2)).
