Certifications and Exemptions Under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, 26210-26212 [2018-12136]

Download as PDF 26210 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 109 / Wednesday, June 6, 2018 / Rules and Regulations J. Preemption Section 26(a) of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. 2075(a), provides that where a ‘‘consumer product safety standard under [the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA)]’’ is in effect and applies to a product, no state or political subdivision of a state may either establish or continue in effect a requirement dealing with the same risk of injury, unless the state requirement is identical to the federal standard. Section 26(c) of the CPSA also provides that states or political subdivisions of states may apply to the Commission for an exemption from this preemption under certain circumstances. The Danny Keysar Child Product Safety Notification Act (at section 104(b)(1)(B) of the CPSIA) refers to the rules to be issued under that section as ‘‘consumer product safety standards,’’ thus, implying that the preemptive effect of section 26(a) of the CPSA would apply. Therefore, a rule issued under section 104 of the CPSIA will invoke the preemptive effect of section 26(a) of the CPSA when it becomes effective. K. Effective Date Under the procedure set forth in section 104(b)(4)(B) of the CPSIA, when a voluntary standard organization revises a standard upon which a consumer product safety standard issued under the Danny Keysar Child Product Safety Notification Act was based, the revision becomes the CPSC standard within 180 days of notification to the Commission, unless the Commission determines that the revision does not improve the safety of the product, or the Commission sets a later date in the Federal Register. The Commission has not set a different effective date. Thus, in accordance with this provision, this rule takes effect 180 days after we received notification from ASTM of revisions to these standards. As discussed in the preceding section, this is a direct final rule. Unless we receive a significant adverse comment within 30 days, the rule will become effective on September 10, 2018. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 16 CFR Part 1220 Consumer protection, Imports, Incorporation by reference, Infants and children, Law enforcement, Safety, Toys.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy (DoN) is amending its 
certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for 
Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the 
Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (DAJAG) (Admiralty and Maritime 
Law) has determined that USS CHARLESTON (LCS 18) is a vessel of the 
Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully 
comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering 
with its special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this 
rule is to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply.

DATES: This rule is effective June 6, 2018 and is applicable beginning 
May 24, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority granted in 33 
U.S.C. 1605, the DoN amends 32 CFR part 706.
    This amendment provides notice that the DAJAG (Admiralty and 
Maritime Law), under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, 
has certified that USS CHARLESTON (LCS 18) is a vessel of the Navy 
which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply 
with the following specific provisions of 72 COLREGS without 
interfering with its special function as a naval ship: Annex I 
paragraph 2 (a)(i), pertaining to the height of the forward masthead 
light above the hull; Annex I, paragraph 2(f)(i), pertaining to the

[[Page 26211]]

placement of the masthead light or lights above and clear of all other 
lights and obstructions; Annex I, paragraph 2(f)(ii), pertaining to the 
vertical placement of task lights; Annex I, paragraph 3(a), pertaining 
to the location of the forward masthead light in the forward quarter of 
the ship, and the horizontal distance between the forward and after 
masthead light; Rule 27(b)(i) and Annex I, paragraph 9(b)(i), 
pertaining to the visibility of the middle task light. The DAJAG 
(Admiralty and Maritime Law) has also certified that the lights 
involved are located in closest possible compliance with the applicable 
72 COLREGS requirements.
    Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR parts 
296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment 
prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public 
interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of 
lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed 
herein will adversely affect the vessel's ability to perform its 
military functions.
