Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002, and 6005 respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class D and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface by recognizing the airport’s name change to Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport, (formerly Hernando County Airport), and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Also, Class E surface airspace is removed, providing the controlled airspace required to support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at this airport. Additionally, an editorial change is made replacing the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the associated Class D airspace legal description of this airport. These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations at this airport. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:46 Apr 18, 2019 Jkt 247001 routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

The Department published a final rule on August 17, 2016 (81 FR 54732) covering those elements of the Proposed Rule not related to the exemption for exports and temporary imports made to or on behalf of a department or agency of the U.S. Government in ITAR § 126.4, and addressed the relevant public comments. This final rule addresses only the proposed revision of that exemption, and addresses only the public comments related to that proposal. The changes to § 126.4 relevant to the existing text are described below. This final rule revises ITAR § 126.4 to clarify when exports, reexports, retransfers, temporary imports, and performance of a defense service (collectively described as ‘‘transfers’’ for the remainder of this rule) may be made by or for an agency of the U.S. Government without a license, including by employees of the U.S. Government in the performance of their official duties. This rule expands the scope of this exemption to allow for permanent exports, reexports, and retransfers, in addition to temporary exports and imports, and to allow transfers by third parties acting for the U.S. Government. In addition, this rule revises the section heading from shipments to transfers to reflect the scope of the exemption. The authorization to transfer defense articles and defense services by or for the U.S. Government is divided between paragraphs (a) and (b) in the revised § 126.4. Paragraph (a) applies to transfers made by the U.S. Government and paragraph (b) applies to transfers made for, or on behalf of, the U.S. Government. Paragraphs (c), (d), (e) and (f) set out additional requirements applicable to transfers made under either paragraph (a) or (b). Paragraph (a) is revised to authorize those transfers made by a department or agency of the U.S. Government (1) for official use by the U.S. Government, (2) for carrying out certain international agreements or arrangements, (3) for carrying out foreign assistance, or sales programs authorized by statute, or (4) for carrying out certain Department of Defense (DOD) ‘‘security cooperation E:\FR\FM\19APR1.SGM 19APR1

Chemical Names of Previously Controlled Fentanyl-Related 
Substances

AGENCY: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice.

ACTION: Notification of chemical names of previously controlled 
substances.

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

SUMMARY: The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is providing 
additional descriptive information with respect to five specific 
substances already covered by a temporary scheduling order that 
appeared in the Federal Register on February 6, 2018. That order placed 
fentanyl-related substances temporarily in schedule I of the Controlled 
Substances Act. The order further stated that if and when DEA 
identifies a specific new substance that falls under the definition of 
a fentanyl-related substance, the agency will publish in the Federal 
Register, and on the agency website, the chemical name of such 
substance. Consistent therewith, this document provides the chemical 
names of five substances that fall within the definition of fentanyl-
related substances that were temporarily controlled under the 
scheduling order issued February 6, 2018.

DATES: This notification has the same effective period as the temporary 
scheduling order published on February 6, 2018 (83 FR 5188): February 
6, 2018 through February 6, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 6, 2018, DEA issued an order 
pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 811(h), which temporarily placed fentanyl-related 
substances in schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). 83 FR 
5188. As defined in the order, fentanyl-related substances include any 
substance not otherwise controlled in any schedule (i.e., not included 
under any other Administration Controlled Substance Code Number) that 
is structurally related to fentanyl by one or more of the following 
modifications:
    1. Replacement of the phenyl portion of the phenethyl group by any 
monocycle, whether or not further substituted in or on the monocycle;
    2. substitution in or on the phenethyl group with alkyl, alkenyl, 
alkoxyl, hydroxyl, halo, haloalkyl, amino or nitro groups;
    3. substitution in or on the piperidine ring with alkyl, alkenyl, 
alkoxyl, ester, ether, hydroxyl, halo, haloalkyl, amino or nitro 
groups;
    4. replacement of the aniline ring with any aromatic monocycle 
whether or not further substituted in or on the aromatic monocycle; 
and/or
    5. replacement of the N-propionyl group by another acyl group.
    The order further stated that if and when DEA identifies a specific 
new substance that falls under the definition of a fentanyl-related 
substance, the agency will publish in the Federal Register, and on the 
agency website, the chemical name of such substance. Consistent 
therewith, DEA is hereby providing the chemical names of five 
substances, which have been identified on the illicit market in the 
United States, that fall within the existing definition of a fentanyl-
related substance:
    N-(1-(2-fluorophenethyl)piperidin-4-yl)-N-(2-
fluorophenyl)propionamide (2'-fluoro ortho-fluorofentanyl);
    N-(2-methylphenyl)-N-(1-phenethylpiperidin-4-yl)acetamide (ortho-
methyl acetylfentanyl);
    N-(1-phenethylpiperidin-4-yl)-N,3-diphenylpropanamide (beta'-phenyl 
fentanyl; hydrocinnamoyl fentanyl);
    N-(1-phenethylpiperidin-4-yl)-N-phenylthiophene-2-carboxamide 
(thiofuranyl fentanyl); and
    (E)-N-(1-phenethylpiperidin-4-yl)-N-phenylbut-2-enamide (crotonyl 
fentanyl).
    The five foregoing substances fall within the definition of 
fentanyl-related substances as they are not otherwise listed under 
another Administration Controlled Substance Code Number and are 
structurally related to fentanyl by the following modifications:
    2'-fluoro ortho-fluorofentanyl: Substitution on the phenethyl group 
with a halo group and substitution on the aniline ring (meets 
definition for modifications 2 and 4);
    ortho-methyl acetylfentanyl: Substitution on the aniline ring and 
replacement of the N-propionyl group with another acyl group (meets 
definition for modifications 4 and 5);
    beta'-phenyl fentanyl: Replacement of the N-propionyl group by 
another acyl group (meets definition for modification 5);
    thiofuranyl fentanyl: Replacement of the N-propionyl group by 
another acyl group (meets definition for modification 5);
    crotonyl fentanyl: Replacement of the N-propionyl group by another 
acyl group (meets definition for modification 5).
    It bears emphasis that, as DEA stated in the temporary scheduling 
order for fentanyl-related substances, even in the absence of this 
publication providing the chemical names of the foregoing five 
substances that fall within the definition of a fentanyl-related 
substance, these five substances (along with any others that might be 
identified in the future) were controlled as of February 6, 2018 by 
virtue of the temporary scheduling order that DEA issued on that date.
