Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 18 / Friday, January 26, 2018 / Rules and Regulations recommendation, the Commission considers a significant adverse comment to be one where the commenter explains why revising the list of regulated phthalates would be inappropriate. We note that comments on either the underlying determinations or phthalates final rules are not considered significant adverse comments because the only change this rule makes is to revise the list of covered phthalates. Should the Commission receive significant adverse comment, the Commission would withdraw this direct final rule. Depending on the comments and other circumstances, the Commission may then incorporate the adverse comment into a subsequent direct final rule or publish a notice of proposed rulemaking, providing an opportunity for public comment. D. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) generally requires that agencies review proposed and final rules for their potential economic impact on small entities, including small businesses, and prepare regulatory flexibility analyses. 5 U.S.C. 603 and 604. CPSC conducted a final regulatory flexibility analysis (FRFA) for the determinations rule that the Commission issued in August 2017. The FRFA found that ‘‘the impact of the determinations on small businesses would be to reduce the burden of third party testing for phthalate content and would be expected to be entirely beneficial.’’ 82 FR 41171. As explained above, this direct final rule takes the limited action of revising the list of covered phthalates to bring the determinations rule into line with the phthalates rule so that companies will be able to use the determinations to reduce third party testing under the phthalates rule as they have under the statutory prohibitions.

ACTION: Direct final rule. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, Agency, or we) is amending the general biologics regulations relating to time of inspection requirements and also removing duties of inspector requirements. FDA is taking this action to remove outdated requirements and accommodate new approaches, such as a risk-based inspection frequency for drug establishments, thereby providing flexibility without diminishing public health protections. This action is part of FDA’s implementation of Executive Orders (E.O.s) 13771 and 13777. Under these E.O.s, FDA is comprehensively reviewing existing regulations to identify opportunities for repeal, replacement, or modification that will result in meaningful burden reduction while allowing the Agency to achieve our public health mission and fulfill statutory obligations. The Agency is issuing these amendments directly as a final rule because we believe they are noncontroversial and FDA anticipates no significant adverse comments. DATES: This rule is effective June 11, 2018. Submit either electronic or written comments on the direct final rule or its companion proposed rule by April 11, 2018. If FDA receives no significant adverse comments within the specified comment period, the Agency intends to publish a document confirming the effective date of the final rule in the Federal Register within 30 days after the comment period on this direct final rule ends. If timely significant adverse comments are received, the Agency will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this direct final rule within 30 days after the comment period on this direct final rule ends.
