ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is granting the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NH DES) the authority to implement and enforce the amended Asbestos Management and Control Rule in place of the National Emission Standard for Asbestos (Asbestos NESHAP) as it applies to certain asbestos-related activities. NH DES’s amended rule applies to all sources that otherwise would be regulated by the Asbestos NESHAP with the exception of inactive waste disposal sites that ceased operation on or before July 9, 1981. These inactive waste disposal sites are already regulated by State rules that were approved by the EPA on January 11, 2013. This approval makes NH DES’s amended Asbestos Management and Control Rule federally enforceable. In addition, EPA is correcting clerical errors in our regulations that incorporate by reference New Hampshire rules regulating inactive waste disposal sites. This action is being taken in accordance with the Clean Air Act. DATES: This rule is effective on October 24, 2018. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of October 24, 2018.

Good Cause Finding for Revisions to Certain Regulations That Incorporate By Reference New Hampshire Rules Regulating Inactive Asbestos Disposal Sites Not Operated After July 9, 1981 IV. Final Action V. Incorporation by Reference VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background and Purpose On March 26, 2018 (83 FR 12917), the EPA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed approval of NH DES’s amended rules in Env-A 1800, ‘‘Asbestos Management and Control,’’ effective as of May 5, 2017, as a partial rule substitution for the Asbestos NESHAP, for all sources in New Hampshire except for inactive waste disposal sites not operated after July 9, 1981. Under CAA section 112(l), the EPA may approve state or local rules or programs to be implemented and enforced in place of certain otherwise applicable Federal rules, emissions standards, or requirements. The Federal regulations governing EPA’s approval of state and local rules or programs under section 112(l) are located at 40 CFR part 63, subpart E. See 58 FR 62262 (November 26, 1993), as amended by 65 FR 55810 (September 14, 2000). Under these regulations, a state air pollution control agency has the option to request EPA’s approval to substitute a state rule for the applicable Federal rule (e.g., the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants). Upon approval by the EPA, the state agency is authorized to implement and enforce its PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 48253 rule in place of the Federal rule, and the state rule becomes federally enforceable in that state. The EPA first promulgated standards to regulate asbestos emissions on April 6, 1973. See 38 FR 8826. These standards have since been amended several times and re-codified in 40 CFR part 61, subpart M, ‘‘National Emission Standard for Asbestos’’ (Asbestos NESHAP). On January 11, 2013, the EPA approved the New Hampshire regulation Env-A 1800 titled ‘‘Asbestos Management and Control’’ (Asbestos Management and Control Rule) as a rule adjustment for the Asbestos NESHAP, applicable to all sources in New Hampshire except for inactive waste disposal sites not operated after July 9, 1981. See 78 FR 2333.1 These inactive disposal sites are regulated by other State rules that were also approved by the EPA on January 11, 2013. See id.2 In a letter dated July 21, 2017, supplemented on August 21, 2017, September 21, 2017, and March 1, 2018, NH DES requested approval of its amended rules pertaining to asbestos management in New Hampshire. Specifically, NH requested approval of Parts Env-A 1801–1807 and Appendices B, C and D of Env-A 1800 titled ‘‘Asbestos Management and Control,’’ 3 effective as of May 5, 2017. The details of NH’s submission and the rationale for EPA’s proposed action are explained in the NPRM and will not be restated here. II. Response to Comments We received a number of anonymous comments on the proposed action that were not germane to the proposal and/ or did not specify what changes should be made to our proposed approval of New Hampshire’s Asbestos Management and Control Rule. Many of the comments identified and pertained to issues that are outside the scope of, and do not reference, the proposed action. Therefore, the EPA will not provide any further specific responses to these comments. The EPA did however 1 The EPA originally approved NH’s Asbestos Management and Control Rule on November 28, 2006, see 71 FR 68746, and approved an updated version of the rule on January 11, 2013. 2 The EPA originally approved NH’s Inactive Waste Disposal Site Rule on May 28, 2003, see 68 FR 31611, and approved an updated version of the rule on January 11, 2013. 3 NH did not request approval of the following provisions 1801.02(e), 1801.07, 1802.02, 1802.04, 1802.07–1802.09, 1802.13, 1802.15–1802.17, 1802.25, 1802.31, 1802.37, 1802.40, 1802.44, and 1803.05–1803.09. In addition, NH DES did not request approval of Env-A 1808 (relating to asbestos analytical requirements), Env-A 1808–1814 (relating to personnel licensing and training), and Appendix A: State Statutes and Federal Regulations Implemented. E:\FR\FM\24SER1.SGM 24SER1 48254 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 185 / Monday, September 24, 2018 / Rules and Regulations receive one comment which could be construed to refer to the proposed approval of New Hampshire’s Asbestos Management and Control Rule. Comment: A single anonymous comment discussed EPA’s use of certain data relating to greenhouse gas emissions. In this context, the comment also stated that ‘‘The Rule created potentially unduly burdensome requirements [sic] Given the extremely limited pollutant loadings and relative high costs, according to EPA’s own analysis, the requirements appear to be ripe for substantial reduction or elimination this [sic] entire subcategory would be excluded by rule given the de minimis amount of pollution.’’ Response: The EPA believes this comment is not relevant as the proposed action does not use data relating to or regulate greenhouse gas emissions. Read in context, the commenter’s reference to ‘‘[t]he Rule’’ appears to refer to a different, unspecified action relating to greenhouse gas emissions. However, to the extent that the reference is to the proposed rule we are finalizing in this action, the EPA disagrees with the comment because this action merely approves the State’s requirements in place of Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES III. Good Cause Finding for Revisions to Certain Regulations That Incorporate By Reference New Hampshire Rules Regulating Inactive Asbestos Disposal Sites Not Operated After July 9, 1981 EPA is also revising certain regulations that incorporate by reference New Hampshire rules regulating inactive asbestos disposal sites not operated after July 9, 1981 (‘‘Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules’’).4 These revisions are minor, non-substantive clarifications to 40 CFR 63.14(l)(6)(i) and 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A). Therefore, EPA is promulgating these revisions without notice and comment. Section 553(b)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that public notice and comment procedures are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an 4 These revisions described in this section of the preamble to 40 CFR 63.14(l)(6)(i) and 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A), relating to EPA’s incorporation by reference of the previously approved Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules) are severable from the remainder of this final rule. Should this portion of the rule be set aside, EPA intends for the remainder of the rule to go into effect. Alternatively, should another portion of the rule be set aside, EPA intends for this portion to go into effect. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:46 Sep 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for finalizing this portion of the rule without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because such notice and opportunity for comment is unnecessary as these revisions correct minor, nonsubstantive, clerical errors. EPA published a direct final rule approving the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules on January 11, 2013. See 78 FR 2333. We received no adverse comments. That rule correctly incorporated the State’s Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules by reference in both 40 CFR parts 61 and 63. In part 63, EPA codified its approval at 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A), and incorporated the State rule by reference at 40 CFR 63.14(d)(5)(i). Subsequently, on February 27, 2014, EPA, consistent with the then-policy of the Office of Federal Register, published a final rule revising 40 CFR 63.14 ‘‘to arrange the materials that are incorporated by reference in alpha-numeric order.’’ See 79 FR 11233. As a result, the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules were moved from paragraph (d)(5)(i) to paragraph (k)(6). Subsequently, in a rulemaking on September 18, 2015, EPA redesignated paragraph (k) as paragraph (l). See 80 FR 56699. These revisions also inadvertently created two clerical errors. First, EPA amended the IBR text, now at 40 CFR 63.14(l)(6), to refer to earlier versions of the State’s Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules, which EPA had approved in prior actions. Second, EPA neglected to amend the text at 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii), which continues to refer to 40 CFR 63.14(d). This action undoes both inadvertent errors. EPA revises 40 CFR 63.14(l)(6) to refer to the more recent version of the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules, and in substance, reverts to the text as originally and correctly promulgated in our 2013 approval. We also update the cross-reference at 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii) to refer to the correct provision consistent with the reordering and redesignating performed in the 2014 and 2015 rules. Providing notice and comment for these revisions is unnecessary for three reasons. First, as explained above, this is a minor technical correction that simply undoes a subsequent clerical error and reverts the regulatory text back to its original form. Second, this action does not subject any new or existing parties to additional regulation, or otherwise alter the regulatory scheme. The relevant sources in New Hampshire remain subject to the same State Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules, regardless of this correction. Third, this action does not affect the federal PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 enforceability of the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules. Notwithstanding the clerical error introduced in the 2014 update, the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules remain federally enforceable under the existing regulations, because they are correctly incorporated by reference under part 61. See 40 CFR 61.04(c)(1)(i), 61.18(e)(1)(i). EPA properly promulgated those provisions in our 2013 approval, and they were not altered by the 2014 and 2015 updates that introduced the clerical error into the incorporation by reference in 40 CFR 63.14. In addition, these revisions make additional, clerical corrections to 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A), to conform to the current policy of the Office of the Federal Register regarding citation format and placement of references. In 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii), we are changing the phrase ‘‘New Hampshire Regulations Applicable to Hazardous Air Pollutants’’ to ‘‘New Hampshire Regulations Chapter Env-Sw 2100: Management and Control of Asbestos Disposal Sites Not Operated after July 9, 1981, effective February 16, 2010.’’ This duplicates the precise citation to the State’s regulations that is already present in paragraph (a)(30)(iii)(A). We are also changing the phrase ‘‘as specified in’’ to ‘‘see.’’ In 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii)(A), we are changing the phrase ‘‘material incorporated into the New Hampshire Regulations at Env-Sw 2100’’ to ‘‘material incorporated from Chapter Env-Sw 2100.’’ In addition, we are moving the reference to the effective date of the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules from paragraph (a)(30)(iii)(A) to paragraph (a)(30)(iii). We are also changing the word ‘‘pertains’’ to ‘‘pertaining.’’ See the full regulatory text of these paragraphs later in this notice. In addition, a strikeout display of the revised version against the existing version is provided in the public docket. These revisions have no legal effect, and therefore notice-and-comment is also unnecessary. IV. Final Action The EPA is approving NH DES’s amended rules in Parts Env-A 1801– 1807 and Appendices B, C, and D of Env-A 1800, ‘‘Asbestos Management and Control,’’ effective as of May 5, 2017 (excluding the following provisions: 1801.02(e), 1801.07, 1802.02, 1802.04, 1802.07–1802.09, 1802.13, 1802.15–1802.17, 1802.25, 1802.31, 1802.37, 1802.40, 1802.44, and 1803.05–1803.09) as a partial rule substitution for the Asbestos NESHAP, for all sources in New Hampshire except for inactive waste disposal sites not E:\FR\FM\24SER1.SGM 24SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 185 / Monday, September 24, 2018 / Rules and Regulations operated after July 9, 1981. In addition, the EPA is correcting clerical errors in our regulations that incorporate by reference New Hampshire rules regulating inactive waste disposal sites. V. Incorporation by Reference In this rule, the EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, the EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of New Hampshire’s Env-A 1800, ‘‘Asbestos Management and Control,’’ effective as of May 5, 2017, Parts Env-A 1801–1807, Appendices B, C, and D; excluding the following provisions: 1801.02(e), 1801.07, 1802.02, 1802.04, 1802.07– 1802.09, 1802.13, 1802.15–1802.17, 1802.25, 1802.31, 1802.37, 1802.40, 1802.44, and 1803.05–1803.09. An attached letter from Clark B. Freise, Assistant Commissioner, Department of Environmental Services, State of New Hampshire, to David J. Alukonis, Interim Director, Office of Legislative Services, dated June 23, 2017, certifies that the copy of the chapter Env-A 1800 is the official version of this rule. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents generally available through https:// www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region 1 Office (please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more information). daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Administrator has the authority to approve section 112(l) submissions that comply with the provisions of the Act and applicable Federal regulations. In reviewing section 112(l) submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria and objectives of the CAA and of EPA’s implementing regulations. Accordingly, this action merely approves the State’s request as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this action: • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011); • Is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this action is not significant under Executive Order 12866. • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:46 Sep 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Public Law 104–4); • Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); In addition, this rule is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA. It also does not provide the EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). And it does not have Tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the EPA is not approving the submitted rule to apply in Indian country located in the State, and because the submitted rule will not impose substantial direct costs on Tribal governments or preempt Tribal law. 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 November 23, 2018. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review, or extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, or postpone the effectiveness of the action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Parts 61 and 63

[EPA-R01-OAR-2017-0641; FRL-9979-67-Region 1]


Approval of the Clean Air Act Section 112(l), Authority for 
Hazardous Air Pollutants: Asbestos Management and Control; Clerical 
Corrections to Incorporation by Reference of Inactive Waste Disposal 
Rules; State of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is granting the New 
Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NH DES) the authority 
to implement and enforce the amended Asbestos Management and Control 
Rule in place of the National Emission Standard for Asbestos (Asbestos 
NESHAP) as it applies to certain asbestos-related activities. NH DES's 
amended rule applies to all sources that otherwise would be regulated 
by the Asbestos NESHAP with the exception of inactive waste disposal 
sites that ceased operation on or before July 9, 1981. These inactive 
waste disposal sites are already regulated by State rules that were 
approved by the EPA on January 11, 2013. This approval makes NH DES's 
amended Asbestos Management and Control Rule federally enforceable. In 
addition, EPA is correcting clerical errors in our regulations that 
incorporate by reference New Hampshire rules regulating inactive waste 
disposal sites. This action is being taken in accordance with the Clean 
Air Act.

DATES: This rule is effective on October 24, 2018. The incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the rule is approved by the 
Director of the Federal Register as of October 24, 2018.

ADDRESSES: The EPA has established a docket for this action under 
Docket Identification No. EPA-R01-OAR-2017-0641. All documents in the 
docket are listed on the https://www.regulations.gov website. Although

I. Background and Purpose

    On March 26, 2018 (83 FR 12917), the EPA published a Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed approval of NH DES's amended 
rules in Env-A 1800, ``Asbestos Management and Control,'' effective as 
of May 5, 2017, as a partial rule substitution for the Asbestos NESHAP, 
for all sources in New Hampshire except for inactive waste disposal 
sites not operated after July 9, 1981.
    Under CAA section 112(l), the EPA may approve state or local rules 
or programs to be implemented and enforced in place of certain 
otherwise applicable Federal rules, emissions standards, or 
requirements. The Federal regulations governing EPA's approval of state 
and local rules or programs under section 112(l) are located at 40 CFR 
part 63, subpart E. See 58 FR 62262 (November 26, 1993), as amended by 
65 FR 55810 (September 14, 2000). Under these regulations, a state air 
pollution control agency has the option to request EPA's approval to 
substitute a state rule for the applicable Federal rule (e.g., the 
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants). Upon 
approval by the EPA, the state agency is authorized to implement and 
enforce its rule in place of the Federal rule, and the state rule 
becomes federally enforceable in that state.
    The EPA first promulgated standards to regulate asbestos emissions 
on April 6, 1973. See 38 FR 8826. These standards have since been 
amended several times and re-codified in 40 CFR part 61, subpart M, 
``National Emission Standard for Asbestos'' (Asbestos NESHAP). On 
January 11, 2013, the EPA approved the New Hampshire regulation Env-A 
1800 titled ``Asbestos Management and Control'' (Asbestos Management 
and Control Rule) as a rule adjustment for the Asbestos NESHAP, 
applicable to all sources in New Hampshire except for inactive waste 
disposal sites not operated after July 9, 1981. See 78 FR 2333.\1\ 
These inactive disposal sites are regulated by other State rules that 
were also approved by the EPA on January 11, 2013. See id.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The EPA originally approved NH's Asbestos Management and 
Control Rule on November 28, 2006, see 71 FR 68746, and approved an 
updated version of the rule on January 11, 2013.
    \2\ The EPA originally approved NH's Inactive Waste Disposal 
Site Rule on May 28, 2003, see 68 FR 31611, and approved an updated 
version of the rule on January 11, 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In a letter dated July 21, 2017, supplemented on August 21, 2017, 
September 21, 2017, and March 1, 2018, NH DES requested approval of its 
amended rules pertaining to asbestos management in New Hampshire. 
Specifically, NH requested approval of Parts Env-A 1801-1807 and 
Appendices B, C and D of Env-A 1800 titled ``Asbestos Management and 
Control,'' \3\ effective as of May 5, 2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ NH did not request approval of the following provisions 
1801.02(e), 1801.07, 1802.02, 1802.04, 1802.07-1802.09, 1802.13, 
1802.15-1802.17, 1802.25, 1802.31, 1802.37, 1802.40, 1802.44, and 
1803.05-1803.09. In addition, NH DES did not request approval of 
Env-A 1808 (relating to asbestos analytical requirements), Env-A 
1808-1814 (relating to personnel licensing and training), and 
Appendix A: State Statutes and Federal Regulations Implemented.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The details of NH's submission and the rationale for EPA's proposed 
action are explained in the NPRM and will not be restated here.

II. Response to Comments

    We received a number of anonymous comments on the proposed action 
that were not germane to the proposal and/or did not specify what 
changes should be made to our proposed approval of New Hampshire's 
Asbestos Management and Control Rule. Many of the comments identified 
and pertained to issues that are outside the scope of, and do not 
reference, the proposed action. Therefore, the EPA will not provide any 
further specific responses to these comments. The EPA did however

[[Page 48254]]

receive one comment which could be construed to refer to the proposed 
approval of New Hampshire's Asbestos Management and Control Rule.
    Comment: A single anonymous comment discussed EPA's use of certain 
data relating to greenhouse gas emissions. In this context, the comment 
also stated that ``The Rule created potentially unduly burdensome 
requirements [sic] Given the extremely limited pollutant loadings and 
relative high costs, according to EPA's own analysis, the requirements 
appear to be ripe for substantial reduction or elimination this [sic] 
entire subcategory would be excluded by rule given the de minimis 
amount of pollution.''
    Response: The EPA believes this comment is not relevant as the 
proposed action does not use data relating to or regulate greenhouse 
gas emissions. Read in context, the commenter's reference to ``[t]he 
Rule'' appears to refer to a different, unspecified action relating to 
greenhouse gas emissions. However, to the extent that the reference is 
to the proposed rule we are finalizing in this action, the EPA 
disagrees with the comment because this action merely approves the 
State's requirements in place of Federal requirements and does not 
impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law.

III. Good Cause Finding for Revisions to Certain Regulations That 
Incorporate By Reference New Hampshire Rules Regulating Inactive 
Asbestos Disposal Sites Not Operated After July 9, 1981

    EPA is also revising certain regulations that incorporate by 
reference New Hampshire rules regulating inactive asbestos disposal 
sites not operated after July 9, 1981 (``Inactive Asbestos Disposal 
Rules'').\4\ These revisions are minor, non-substantive clarifications 
to 40 CFR 63.14(l)(6)(i) and 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A). 
Therefore, EPA is promulgating these revisions without notice and 
comment. Section 553(b)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds 
that public notice and comment procedures are impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a 
rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. 
EPA has determined that there is good cause for finalizing this portion 
of the rule without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because 
such notice and opportunity for comment is unnecessary as these 
revisions correct minor, non-substantive, clerical errors.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ These revisions described in this section of the preamble to 
40 CFR 63.14(l)(6)(i) and 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A), 
relating to EPA's incorporation by reference of the previously 
approved Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules) are severable from the 
remainder of this final rule. Should this portion of the rule be set 
aside, EPA intends for the remainder of the rule to go into effect. 
Alternatively, should another portion of the rule be set aside, EPA 
intends for this portion to go into effect.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EPA published a direct final rule approving the Inactive Asbestos 
Disposal Rules on January 11, 2013. See 78 FR 2333. We received no 
adverse comments. That rule correctly incorporated the State's Inactive 
Asbestos Disposal Rules by reference in both 40 CFR parts 61 and 63. In 
part 63, EPA codified its approval at 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and 
(a)(30)(iii)(A), and incorporated the State rule by reference at 40 CFR 
63.14(d)(5)(i). Subsequently, on February 27, 2014, EPA, consistent 
with the then-policy of the Office of Federal Register, published a 
final rule revising 40 CFR 63.14 ``to arrange the materials that are 
incorporated by reference in alpha-numeric order.'' See 79 FR 11233. As 
a result, the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules were moved from 
paragraph (d)(5)(i) to paragraph (k)(6). Subsequently, in a rulemaking 
on September 18, 2015, EPA redesignated paragraph (k) as paragraph (l). 
See 80 FR 56699. These revisions also inadvertently created two 
clerical errors. First, EPA amended the IBR text, now at 40 CFR 
63.14(l)(6), to refer to earlier versions of the State's Inactive 
Asbestos Disposal Rules, which EPA had approved in prior actions. 
Second, EPA neglected to amend the text at 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii), 
which continues to refer to 40 CFR 63.14(d). This action undoes both 
inadvertent errors. EPA revises 40 CFR 63.14(l)(6) to refer to the more 
recent version of the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules, and in 
substance, reverts to the text as originally and correctly promulgated 
in our 2013 approval. We also update the cross-reference at 40 CFR 
63.99(a)(30)(iii) to refer to the correct provision consistent with the 
re-ordering and redesignating performed in the 2014 and 2015 rules.
    Providing notice and comment for these revisions is unnecessary for 
three reasons. First, as explained above, this is a minor technical 
correction that simply undoes a subsequent clerical error and reverts 
the regulatory text back to its original form. Second, this action does 
not subject any new or existing parties to additional regulation, or 
otherwise alter the regulatory scheme. The relevant sources in New 
Hampshire remain subject to the same State Inactive Asbestos Disposal 
Rules, regardless of this correction. Third, this action does not 
affect the federal enforceability of the Inactive Asbestos Disposal 
Rules. Notwithstanding the clerical error introduced in the 2014 
update, the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules remain federally 
enforceable under the existing regulations, because they are correctly 
incorporated by reference under part 61. See 40 CFR 61.04(c)(1)(i), 
61.18(e)(1)(i). EPA properly promulgated those provisions in our 2013 
approval, and they were not altered by the 2014 and 2015 updates that 
introduced the clerical error into the incorporation by reference in 40 
CFR 63.14.
    In addition, these revisions make additional, clerical corrections 
to 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii) and (a)(30)(iii)(A), to conform to the 
current policy of the Office of the Federal Register regarding citation 
format and placement of references. In 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii), we are 
changing the phrase ``New Hampshire Regulations Applicable to Hazardous 
Air Pollutants'' to ``New Hampshire Regulations Chapter Env-Sw 2100: 
Management and Control of Asbestos Disposal Sites Not Operated after 
July 9, 1981, effective February 16, 2010.'' This duplicates the 
precise citation to the State's regulations that is already present in 
paragraph (a)(30)(iii)(A). We are also changing the phrase ``as 
specified in'' to ``see.'' In 40 CFR 63.99(a)(30)(iii)(A), we are 
changing the phrase ``material incorporated into the New Hampshire 
Regulations at Env-Sw 2100'' to ``material incorporated from Chapter 
Env-Sw 2100.'' In addition, we are moving the reference to the 
effective date of the Inactive Asbestos Disposal Rules from paragraph 
(a)(30)(iii)(A) to paragraph (a)(30)(iii). We are also changing the 
word ``pertains'' to ``pertaining.'' See the full regulatory text of 
these paragraphs later in this notice. In addition, a strikeout display 
of the revised version against the existing version is provided in the 
public docket. These revisions have no legal effect, and therefore 
notice-and-comment is also unnecessary.

IV. Final Action

    The EPA is approving NH DES's amended rules in Parts Env-A 1801-
1807 and Appendices B, C, and D of Env-A 1800, ``Asbestos Management 
and Control,'' effective as of May 5, 2017 (excluding the following 
provisions: 1801.02(e), 1801.07, 1802.02, 1802.04, 1802.07-1802.09, 
1802.13, 1802.15-1802.17, 1802.25, 1802.31, 1802.37, 1802.40, 1802.44, 
and 1803.05-1803.09) as a partial rule substitution for the Asbestos 
NESHAP, for all sources in New Hampshire except for inactive waste 
disposal sites not

[[Page 48255]]

operated after July 9, 1981. In addition, the EPA is correcting 
clerical errors in our regulations that incorporate by reference New 
Hampshire rules regulating inactive waste disposal sites.

V. Incorporation by Reference

    In this rule, the EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes 
incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 
51.5, the EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of New 
Hampshire's Env-A 1800, ``Asbestos Management and Control,'' effective 
as of May 5, 2017, Parts Env-A 1801-1807, Appendices B, C, and D; 
excluding the following provisions: 1801.02(e), 1801.07, 1802.02, 
1802.04, 1802.07-1802.09, 1802.13, 1802.15-1802.17, 1802.25, 1802.31, 
1802.37, 1802.40, 1802.44, and 1803.05-1803.09. An attached letter from 
Clark B. Freise, Assistant Commissioner, Department of Environmental 
Services, State of New Hampshire, to David J. Alukonis, Interim 
Director, Office of Legislative Services, dated June 23, 2017, 
certifies that the copy of the chapter Env-A 1800 is the official 
version of this rule. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, 
these documents generally available through https://www.regulations.gov 
and at the EPA Region 1 Office (please contact the person identified in 
the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more 
information).

VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator has the authority to approve 
section 112(l) submissions that comply with the provisions of the Act 
and applicable Federal regulations. In reviewing section 112(l) 
submissions, EPA's role is to approve state choices, provided that they 
meet the criteria and objectives of the CAA and of EPA's implementing 
regulations. Accordingly, this action merely approves the State's 
request as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional 
requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this 
action:
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to review 
by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 
FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011);
     Is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because 
this action is not significant under Executive Order 12866.
     Does not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Is certified as not having a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
     Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-4);
     Does not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Is not an economically significant regulatory action based 
on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to 
Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
    In addition, this rule is not subject to requirements of Section 
12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 
(15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be 
inconsistent with the CAA. It also does not provide the EPA with the 
discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate 
human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally 
permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 
16, 1994). And it does not have Tribal implications as specified by 
Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the EPA 
is not approving the submitted rule to apply in Indian country located 
in the State, and because the submitted rule will not impose 
substantial direct costs on Tribal governments or preempt Tribal law.
    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 November 23, 2018. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of 
judicial review, or extend the time within which a petition for 
judicial review may be filed, or postpone the effectiveness of the 
action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to 
enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
