SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Pittsfield Municipal Airport, Pittsfield, MA, due to the redesign of the LOC/DME RWY 26 approach. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 41938, August 16, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0563 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Pittsfield Municipal Airport, Pittsfield, MA, due to the redesign of the LOC/DME RWY 26 approach.

Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designation 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 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Pittsfield Municipal Airport, Pittsfield, MA, by increasing the airport radius to 9.6 miles (from 4 miles), enlarging the northeast extension of the airport to 6-miles each side of a 064° bearing of the airport, extending from the 9.6-mile radius to 18-miles northeast of the airport, and eliminating the southwest extension of the airport to accommodate airspace reconfiguration due to the redesign of the LOC/DME RWY 26 approach into the airport. Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations at this airport. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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 E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 241 / Monday, December 16, 2019 / Rules and Regulations regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal.

Issued in College Park, Georgia, on December 4, 2019. Ryan Almasy, Manager, Operations Support Group, Eastern Service Center, Air Traffic Organization. Environmental Review DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES 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.

Reference Food and Drug Administration I. Executive Summary 21 CFR Part 310 In this final rule, FDA repeals the irradiation regulation, which provided that any drug sterilized by irradiation was a new drug. OTC drugs marketed pursuant to the OTC Drug Review that are generally recognized as safe and effective, are not misbranded, and comply with all applicable regulatory requirements now can be marketed legally without an FDA-approved NDA or ANDA, even if the drugs are sterilized by irradiation. As the Agency explained in the proposed rule published in the Federal Register of September 12, 2018 (83 FR 46121), FDA is taking this action because the Agency no longer concludes that drugs sterilized by irradiation are necessarily new drugs. The technology of controlled nuclear radiation for sterilization of drugs is now well understood. In addition, drugs that are marketed pursuant to the OTC Drug Review must be manufactured in compliance with current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs). Appropriate and effective sterilization of drugs, including by irradiation, is adequately addressed by the CGMP requirements. Repealing the irradiation regulation eliminates a requirement that is no longer necessary and will not diminish public health protections. The estimated one-time costs of this rule range from $25 to $32. Avoiding the unnecessary preparation and review of a premarket drug application will generate an estimated one-time cost savings that range from about $0.40 million to $2.16 million. Over 10 years with a 7 percent discount rate, the annualized net cost savings range from $0.05 million to $0.29 million, with a primary estimate of $0.06 million; with a 3 percent discount rate, the annualized net cost savings range from $0.05 million to $0.25 million, with a primary estimate of $0.05 million. Over an infinite horizon, we assume that one sponsor will benefit from this deregulatory action every 10 years; the present value of the net cost savings over the infinite horizon range from $0.76 million to $4.11 million with a 7 [Docket No. FDA–2017–N–6924] RIN 0910–AH47 Regulation Requiring an Approved New Drug Application for Drugs Sterilized by Irradiation Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, the Agency, or we) is issuing a final rule repealing a regulation that requires an FDAapproved new drug application (NDA) or abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for any drug product that is sterilized by irradiation (the irradiation regulation). Repealing the irradiation regulation will mean that over-thecounter (OTC) drug products that are generally recognized as safe and effective, are not misbranded, and comply with all applicable regulatory requirements can be marketed legally without an NDA or ANDA, even if they are sterilized by irradiation. FDA is taking this action because the irradiation regulation is out of date and unnecessary. DATES: This rule is effective January 15, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface for Pittsfield Municipal Airport, Pittsfield, MA, due to the 
redesign of the LOC/DME RWY 26 approach.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 41938, August 16, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0563 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
for Pittsfield Municipal Airport, Pittsfield, MA, due to the redesign 
of the LOC/DME RWY 26 approach.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 
2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designation 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 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 
2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Pittsfield Municipal Airport, Pittsfield, MA, by 
increasing the airport radius to 9.6 miles (from 4 miles), enlarging 
the northeast extension of the airport to 6-miles each side of a 
064[deg] bearing of the airport, extending from the 9.6-mile radius to 
18-miles northeast of the airport, and eliminating the southwest 
extension of the airport to accommodate airspace reconfiguration due to 
the redesign of the LOC/DME RWY 26 approach into the airport. Also, the 
geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database. These changes are necessary for continued 
safety and management of IFR operations at this airport.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

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

[[Page 68331]]

regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since 
this is a 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.
