Egg Products Inspection Regulations, 81340-81341 [2020-26798]

Download as PDF 81340 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 242 / Wednesday, December 16, 2020 / Rules and Regulations that further rulemaking on this matter is unnecessary. However, FSIS is providing an opportunity for comment on the uniform compliance date established in this final rule. Paperwork Reduction Act FSIS has reviewed this rule under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520) and has determined that there is no new information collection related to this final rule. Under this final rule, the Agency is establishing January 1, 2024, as the uniform compliance date for new meat and poultry product labeling regulations that will be issued between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2022. The relevant information collection or record keeping requirements are covered under OMB approval number 0583–0092, Marking, Labeling, and Packaging. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563, and the Regulatory Flexibility Act Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety benefits, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order (E.O.) 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This final rule has been designated as a ‘‘nonsignificant’’ regulatory action under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866. Accordingly, the final rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget under E.O. 12866. This rule does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities; consequently, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required (5 U.S.C. 601–612). Congressional Review Act Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act at 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has determined that this final rule is not a ‘‘major rule,’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Additional Public Notification Public awareness of all segments of rulemaking and policy development is important.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: In this final rule, the U.S. Department of Energy (‘‘DOE’’) adopts a revised definition for ‘‘showerhead’’ and definitions for ‘‘body spray’’ and ‘‘safety shower showerhead’’. The revised regulatory definition for ‘‘showerhead’’ is consistent with the most recent standard developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (‘‘ASME’’) in 2018, such that each showerhead in a product containing multiple showerheads would be considered separately for purposes of determining standards compliance. DOE has determined that the definition is consistent with EPCA and, unlike the current definition, compliant with the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act and Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) Circular A–119. In addition, the definition is consistent with DOE’s treatment of other products, such as body sprays. DOE is also defining the terms ‘‘body spray’’ and ‘‘safety shower showerhead’’ to clarify which products are not subject to the current energy conservation standard. With regard to the showerhead test procedure, DOE emphasizes in this final rule that the existing test procedure remains applicable for purposes of measuring the water use of a showerhead as defined in this final rule. DOE is not finalizing any test procedure amendments in this final rule. DATES: The effective date of this rule is January 15, 2021. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register on January 15, 2021. ADDRESSES: The docket for this rulemaking, which includes Federal Register notices, comments, and other supporting documents/materials, is available for review at https:// www.regulations.gov.
