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 airspace action of amending ATS routes V–82, V–217, and T–383 due to the planned decommissioning of the Baudette VOR has no potential to cause any significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment. Therefore, this airspace action has been categorically excluded from further environmental impact review in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR parts 1500–1508, and in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5–6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, this action has been reviewed for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis, and it is determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

Additionally, the airway segment between the intersection of the Chicago Heights, IL, VORTAC 358° and Badger, WI, VOR/DME 117° radials (PETTY fix) and the Green Bay, WI, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. All radials in the route description are stated in True degrees. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 Department of Transportation (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.

ACTION: Final rule. I. Executive Summary The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, the Agency, or we) is issuing a final rule to amend its regulation that defines ‘‘biological product’’ to incorporate changes made by the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009 (BPCI Act) and the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (FCA Act), and to provide its interpretation of the statutory term ‘‘protein.’’ Under this final rule, the term protein means any alpha amino acid polymer with a specific, defined sequence that is greater than 40 amino acids in size.

Purpose of the Final Rule This final rule amends FDA’s regulation that defines ‘‘biological product’’ by making a technical revision and conforming to the statutory definition enacted in the BPCI Act, as further amended by section 605 of the FCA Act (Pub. L. 116–94). The BPCI Act amended the definition of ‘‘biological product’’ in section 351(i) of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) (42 U.S.C. 262(i)) to include a ‘‘protein (except any chemically synthesized polypeptide).’’ After publication of the proposed rule, section 605 of the FCA Act further amended the definition of ‘‘biological product’’ in section 351(i) of the PHS Act to remove the parenthetical ‘‘(except any chemically synthesized polypeptide)’’ from the statutory category of ‘‘protein.’’ The final rule makes conforming changes to § 600.3 (21 CFR 600.3) to add FDA’s interpretation of the statutory term ‘‘protein.’’ B. Summary of the Major Provisions of the Final Rule Under the final rule, the term protein means any alpha amino acid polymer with a specific defined sequence that is greater than 40 amino acids in size. This is consistent with the interpretation of this term that FDA previously described in the notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register on December 12, 2018 (83 FR 63817) and in a final guidance document issued on April 30, 2015 (see 80 FR 24259 (announcing the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Biosimilars: Questions and Answers PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 10057 Regarding Implementation of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009,’’ available at https://www.regulations.gov (Docket No. FDA–2011–D–0611) (2015 Biosimilars Q&A Guidance); see also ‘‘New and Revised Draft Q&As on Biosimilar Development and the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (Revision 2)’’ (December 2018; 83 FR 63898)). C. Legal Authority This final rule amends FDA’s regulations to implement certain aspects of the BPCI Act and the FCA Act. FDA’s authority for this rule derives from the biological product provisions in section 351 of the PHS Act and the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 321, et seq.) applicable to drugs, as well as section 701 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 371). The rule is necessary to clarify the statutory authority under which biological products are regulated, to prevent inconsistent regulation of such products, and for the efficient enforcement of the FD&C Act. D. Costs and Benefits This final rule codifies FDA’s interpretation of the statutory term ‘‘protein’’ in a manner that is consistent with the interpretation of this term that FDA previously described in guidance (see 2015 Biosimilars Q&A Guidance) and the proposed rule. Formalizing this interpretation will reduce regulatory uncertainty over whether certain products are regulated as drugs or biological products. This reduced uncertainty, under the ‘‘bright-line’’ approach described in the proposed rule, will allow both FDA and private industry to avoid spending time and resources on case-by-case determinations for each product. The primary estimate of the benefits in 2018 dollars annualized over 10 years is $394,562 using a 7 percent discount rate and $348,436 using a 3 percent discount rate. We also calculate ranges of benefits of $356,775 to $411,345 and $316,116 to $362,792, respectively. The estimated annualized costs range from $13,511 to $16,889, with a primary estimate of $15,012 using a 7 percent discount rate over a 10-year horizon. For a 3 percent discount rate, we estimate a range of $12,471 to $15,589, with a primary estimate of $13,857. II.

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

[[Page 10056]]

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 the 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 would modify the 
route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of 
air traffic within the National Airspace System.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2019-0686 in the Federal Register (84 FR 50347; September 25, 
2019), amending VOR Federal airway V-7 due to the planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Falls, WI, VOR/DME NAVAID. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were 
received.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 
7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airway 
listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

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

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airway V-7. The planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Falls, WI, VOR/DME has made 
this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway change is outlined below.
    V-7: V-7 extends between the Dolphin, FL, VOR/Tactical Air 
Navigation (VORTAC) and the Muscle Shoals, AL, VORTAC; and between the 
Central City, KY, VORTAC and the Sawyer, MI, VOR/DME. The airspace 
below 2,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) outside the United States is 
excluded. The portion outside the United States has no upper limit. The 
PETTY fix in the airway description is amended to describe it as the 
intersection of the Chicago Heights, IL, VORTAC 358[deg] and Badger, 
WI, VOR/DME 117[deg] radials. Additionally, the airway segment between 
the intersection of the Chicago Heights, IL, VORTAC 358[deg] and 
Badger, WI, VOR/DME 117[deg] radials (PETTY fix) and the Green Bay, WI, 
VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway 
remain as charted.
    All radials in the route description are stated in True degrees.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 
Department of Transportation (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 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 airspace action of amending the 
PETTY fix NAVAID radial computations in VOR Federal airway V-7 and 
removing airway segment between the PETTY fix and the Green Bay, WI, 
VORTAC has no potential to cause any significant environmental impacts, 
and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment. Therefore, this airspace action has been 
categorically excluded from further environmental impact review in 
accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and its 
implementing regulations at 40 CFR parts 1500-1508, and in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, 
paragraph 5-6.5a, which categorically excludes from further 
environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify 
classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 
14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; 
Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). In accordance with 
FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5-2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, 
the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which 
a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant 
environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA has determined 
no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment or environmental impact study.
