Download as PDF 35586 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 142 / Wednesday, July 24, 2019 / Proposed Rules CAS number: Not available. Federal Register publication date and reference: August 7, 2013 (78 FR 48051). Basis for revocation of SNUR: EPA issued a SNUR for this substance that designated certain activities as significant new uses based on a finding that the substance may cause significant adverse environmental effects and met the concern criteria at § 721.170(b)(4)(ii). The SNUR required notification before any use of the substance resulting in surface water concentrations exceeding 1 part per billion (ppb). Subsequently, a manufacturer of the substance submitted a SNUN to allow surface water concentrations exceeding 1 ppb. Acute and chronic toxicity values measured for fish, aquatic invertebrates, and algae in the submitted data all demonstrated no effects at saturation in the aqueous environment. In addition, the chronic toxicity value measured for sediment-dwelling invertebrates is >788 milligrams/kilogram (mg/kg) dry weight (Lowest Observed Effect Concentration). Test data on the chemical substance were negative for the following human health hazards: Mutagenicity, irritation to the eyes and skin, and skin sensitization. A No-Observed Adverse Effect Level of 1,000 mg/kg-bodyweight (bw)/day was identified based on no treatment-related adverse effects at the highest dose tested in a 28-day oral repeated-dose toxicity study (OECD Test Guideline 407). Based on the results of the testing, EPA determined that the substance has inherently low toxicity. The studies are available in the public docket. As a result, EPA made a determination of not likely to present an unreasonable risk under TSCA section 5(a)(3)(C) for the SNUN. EPA concludes that the substance does not meet the criteria under § 721.170(b). Therefore, EPA proposes that the SNUR for these chemical substances be revoked pursuant to § 721.185(a)(4). CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10691. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with PROPOSALS B. What is the Agency’s authority for taking this action? Under § 721.185, EPA may at any time revoke a SNUR for a chemical substance which has been added to subpart E of § 721 if EPA makes one of the determinations set forth in § 721.185(a)(1) through (a)(6). Revocation may occur on EPA’s initiative or in response to a written request. Under § 721.185(b)(3), if EPA concludes that a SNUR should be revoked, the Agency will propose the changes in the Federal Register, briefly describe the grounds for the action, and VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:48 Jul 23, 2019 Jkt 247001 provide interested parties an opportunity to comment. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This proposed rule would revoke or eliminate an existing regulatory requirement and does not contain any new or amended requirements. As such, the Agency has determined that this proposed SNUR revocation would not have any adverse impacts, economic or otherwise. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted these types of regulatory actions from review under Executive Order 12866, entitled Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). This proposed rule does not contain any information collections subject to approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Since this proposed rule eliminates a reporting requirement, the Agency certifies pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), that this SNUR revocation would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. For the same reasons, this action does not require any action under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Pub. L. 104–4). This proposed rule has neither Federalism implications, because it would not have substantial direct effects on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 entitled Federalism (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), nor Tribal implications, because it would not have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175 entitled Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action is not subject to Executive Order 13045 entitled Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because this is not an economically significant regulatory action as defined under Executive Order 12866, and it does not address environmental health or safety risks disproportionately affecting children. This action is not subject to Executive Order 1311, entitled Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001), because this action is not expected to affect energy supply, distribution, or use. Because this action does not involve any technical standards, section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104–113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note), does not apply to this action. This action does not involve special considerations of environmental justice related issues as required by Executive Order 12898 entitled Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

Regulatory Amendment 33 to the Snapper Grouper Fishery Management Plan

    The number of recreational fishing days for red snapper in federal 
waters in the South Atlantic is determined by NOAA Fisheries each year, 
based on estimated harvest from the previous year. If fishing is 
allowed, the opening dates of both the recreational fishery and 
commercial fishery currently begin in July. The Council is considering 
options for modifying the current parameters in place, including the 
season start dates, as well as days of the week when red snapper 
harvest is allowed to allow more flexibility for the season and 
optimize fishing opportunities for red snapper.
    Regulatory Amendment 33 to the Snapper Grouper Fishery Management 
Plan would address these modifications and includes actions to remove 
the minimum number of days for allowing a red snapper season (currently 
3 days or more), modify the start date of the recreational red snapper 
season, revise the days of the week recreational harvest would be 
allowed, and modify the start date of the red snapper commercial 
fishery.
    During the public hearings, Council staff will present an overview 
of the amendment via webinar and answer clarifying questions relevant 
to the proposed actions. Area Council members will be present at each 
of the Listening Stations to help answer questions and facilitate 
discussion. Members of the public will have an opportunity to go on 
record to record their comments for consideration by the Council.
