Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Steamboat Slough (Snohomish River), Marysville, WA, 53375-53376 [2018-23028]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 205 / Tuesday, October 23, 2018 / Rules and Regulations X. 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. 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. XI. 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 section 104(b) of the CPSIA 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 January 15, 2019.
