ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action amends the following Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L. The FAA found an error with the Offshore Airspace Legal Descriptions containing airspace descriptions not related to the need to apply IFR en route Air Traffic Control services in international airspace. This action corrects that error by removing terminal airspace, airspace associated with geographic coordinates, and airspace associated with NAVAIDs from the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions. DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, June 17, 2021. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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 correct the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions 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–2020–0823 in the Federal Register (85 FR 59220; September 21, 2020) reversing the final rule for Docket No. FAA–2006–25852 in the Federal Register (72 FR 31714; June 8, 2007; as corrected 72 FR 37430, July 10, 2007) that amended the offshore airspace areas, including: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska, to include terminal airspace previously thought to be excluded in the Code of Federal Regulations. The exclusionary language was misinterpreted including all airspace West of Longitude 160°. The FAA found this interpretation to be in error, as the exclusion only pertains to the area West of Longitude 160° for the Alaskan Peninsula. The Alaskan Peninsula does not include the Aleutian Islands, nor preclude the establishment of airspace under CFR 71.71(c). Additionally, this final rule corrects the final rule for Docket No. FAA–2006–26164 in the Federal Register (72 FR 5611; February 7, 2007) that revoked Class E Airspace for Adak, ATKA, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK as it was thought that because these locations were within Control 1234L, they should be contained in the offshore airspace description. This was in error, as offshore airspace cannot be established within 12 nautical miles (NM) of a coastline of the United States (U.S.). This action corrects these errors. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the E:\FR\FM\12APR1.SGM 12APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 68 / Monday, April 12, 2021 / Rules and Regulations proposal. No significant comments were received. Offshore Airspace Areas are published in 6007, and Class E Airspace Areas Designated as Surface Areas, and Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth, are published in paragraph 6002 and 6005, of FAA Order 7400.11E dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Offshore Airspace Areas, Class E Airspace Areas Designated as Surface Areas, and Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Differences From the NPRM In the NPRM published in the Federal Register (85 FR 59220; September 21, 2020) proposal and amendment sections, the FAA proposed a technical amendment to 33 terminal facilities, five navigational aids (NAVAIDS), and three sets of geographic coordinate assigned airspace in the Offshore Airspace areas legal descriptions contained in FAA Order 7400.11 Section 6007, 6002, and 6005. After further review, the FAA identified that 10 facilities (Chevak, AK; Chignik, AK; King Salmon, AK; Kodiak, AK; Manokotak, AK; Nome, AK; Perryville, AK; Shaktoolik, AK; St. Michael, AK; and Tooksook Bay, AK) and five navigation aids (Biorka Island, AK; Glacier River, AK; Middleton Island, AK; Nome, AK; and Kotzebue, AK) contained language in the legal description excluding airspace beyond 12 NM from the coastline. The FAA determined that Air Traffic Facilities are using Terminal Arrival Areas (TAA) for most of the approaches associated with these locations. These TAAs cover 30 NM from an established waypoint and extend into offshore airspace beyond 12 NM from the coastline. If the exclusionary language were allowed to take effect, these areas would be without controlled airspace. In addition, some of these locations are further constrained because the airspace beyond 12 NM provides airspace for Missed Approach holding and vectoring of aircraft from an airway to the Initial Approach Fix and the terminal environment. The FAA determined that these locations should be retained in the associated Offshore Airspace Areas to provide the airspace needed for these operations until an airspace review can be conducted and these procedures safely be brought into compliance, while maintaining the required controlled airspace. This rule corrects this error in the Rule section.

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 Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 legal descriptions for certain Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska to separate Terminal Airspace Areas from Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq) and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, 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). As such, this action is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental impacts. 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 that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is issuing this final rule to make a technical amendment to the definition of ‘‘applicable schedule amount’’ in its regulations. In recent years, OFAC has adjusted its civil monetary penalties (CMPs) as required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act, as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. While OFAC’s ‘‘applicable schedule amount’’ values are not civil monetary penalties that are required to be adjusted pursuant to such statute, OFAC is making a technical change to this definition to ensure the applicable schedule amount values continue to correspond appropriately to OFAC’s CMPs. SUMMARY: DATES: This rule is effective April 12, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: OFAC: Assistant Director for Licensing, tel.: 202–622–2480; Assistant Director for Regulatory Affairs, tel.: 202–622– 4855; or Assistant Director for Sanctions Compliance & Evaluation, tel.: 202–622– 2490. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Electronic Availability This document and additional information concerning OFAC are available on OFAC’s website (www.treasury.gov/ofac). Background On September 8, 2008, OFAC issued as an interim final rule the ‘‘Economic Sanctions Enforcement Guidelines’’ (Enforcement Guidelines) as appendix A VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:01 Apr 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 to the Reporting, Procedures and Penalties Regulations at 31 CFR part 501 (73 FR 51933, September 8, 2008). On November 9, 2009, OFAC re-issued as a final rule the Enforcement Guidelines (74 FR 57593, November 9, 2009). OFAC’s Enforcement Guidelines provide a general framework for the enforcement of all economic sanctions programs administered by OFAC. Section V.B.2.a.ii. of the Enforcement Guidelines states that the base amount of a proposed civil penalty in a PrePenalty Notice shall be the ‘‘applicable schedule amount,’’ subject to certain caps noted in that section, where the case is deemed non-egregious and the apparent violation has come to OFAC’s attention by means other than a voluntary self-disclosure. Section I.B. of the Enforcement Guidelines provides a definition of ‘‘applicable schedule amount.’’ Separately, as required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act (1990 Pub. L. 101–410, 104 Stat. 890; 28 U.S.C. 2461 note), as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–74, 129 Stat. 599, 28 U.S.C. 2461 note) (the FCPIA Act), OFAC has adjusted its CMPs six times since the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act went into effect on November 2, 2015: An initial catch-up adjustment on August 1, 2016 (81 FR 43070, July 1, 2016); an additional initial catch-up adjustment related to CMPs for failure to comply with a requirement to furnish information, the late filing of a required report, and failure to maintain records (‘‘recordkeeping CMPs’’) that were inadvertently omitted from the August 1, 2016 initial catch-up adjustment on October 5, 2020 (85 FR 54911, September 3, 2020); and annual adjustments on February 10, 2017 (82 FR 10434, February 10, 2017); March 19, 2018 (83 FR 11876, March 19, 2018); June 14, 2019 (84 FR 27714, June 14, 2019); and April 9, 2020 (85 FR 19884, April 9, 2020). OFAC’s applicable schedule amount values in the Enforcement Guidelines, while not required to be adjusted pursuant to the FCPIA Act, correspond in certain ways with OFAC’s CMPs. As a result, on August 11, 2020, OFAC issued a final rule amending the definition of ‘‘applicable schedule amount’’ in section I.B. of appendix A to 31 CFR part 501 to adjust applicable schedule amount values for transactions valued at $100,000 or more to correspond with OFAC’s recent CMP adjustments required by the FCPIA Act (85 FR 48474, August 11, 2020). PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 18895 By a separate rule, OFAC has published its annual adjustment of CMPs pursuant to the FCPIA Act for 2021. Related to that action, today OFAC is again amending the definition of ‘‘applicable schedule amount’’ in section I.B. of appendix A to 31 CFR part 501 to adjust the applicable schedule amount value for transactions valued at $200,000 or more to correspond with OFAC’s recent CMP adjustments. Specifically, OFAC is amending section I.B.7. such that in the case of transactions valued at $200,000 or more, the applicable schedule amount is now $311,562, which corresponds with the current maximum CMP amount for a violation of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1706, at 1705). This change is not required pursuant to the FCPIA Act; however, OFAC is making this change to ensure the applicable schedule amount value continues to correspond appropriately to OFAC’s CMPs as the CMPs are adjusted pursuant to the FCPIA annually. Public Participation Because this final rule imposes no obligations on any person, but only amends OFAC’s enforcement policy and procedures based on existing substantive rules, provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date are inapplicable. Further, this final rule is not a significant regulatory action for purposes of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’ (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this rule, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) does not apply. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this rule does not impose information collection requirements that would require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. List of Subjects in 31 CFR Part 501 Administrative practice and procedure, Banks, banking, Blocking of assets, Exports, Foreign trade, Licensing, Penalties, Sanctions. For the reasons set forth in the preamble, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control amends 31 CFR part 501 as follows: E:\FR\FM\12APR1.SGM 12APR1

Amendment To Separate Terminal Airspace Areas From Norton Sound 
Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore 
Airspace Areas; Alaska

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This action amends the following Offshore Airspace Areas in 
Alaska: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 
1487L. The FAA found an error with the Offshore Airspace Legal 
Descriptions containing airspace descriptions not related to the need 
to apply IFR en route Air Traffic Control services in international 
airspace. This action corrects that error by removing terminal 
airspace, airspace associated with geographic coordinates, and airspace 
associated with NAVAIDs from the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions.

DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, June 17, 2021. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and 
publication of conforming amendments.

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 
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 correct the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions 
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-2020-0823 in the Federal Register (85 FR 59220; September 21, 2020) 
reversing the final rule for Docket No. FAA-2006-25852 in the Federal 
Register (72 FR 31714; June 8, 2007; as corrected 72 FR 37430, July 10, 
2007) that amended the offshore airspace areas, including: Norton Sound 
Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore 
Airspace Areas; Alaska, to include terminal airspace previously thought 
to be excluded in the Code of Federal Regulations. The exclusionary 
language was misinterpreted including all airspace West of Longitude 
160[deg]. The FAA found this interpretation to be in error, as the 
exclusion only pertains to the area West of Longitude 160[deg] for the 
Alaskan Peninsula. The Alaskan Peninsula does not include the Aleutian 
Islands, nor preclude the establishment of airspace under CFR 71.71(c). 
Additionally, this final rule corrects the final rule for Docket No. 
FAA-2006-26164 in the Federal Register (72 FR 5611; February 7, 2007) 
that revoked Class E Airspace for Adak, ATKA, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, 
Saint George Island, Sand Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, 
AK as it was thought that because these locations were within Control 
1234L, they should be contained in the offshore airspace description. 
This was in error, as offshore airspace cannot be established within 12 
nautical miles (NM) of a coastline of the United States (U.S.). This 
action corrects these errors. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the

[[Page 18891]]

proposal. No significant comments were received.
    Offshore Airspace Areas are published in 6007, and Class E Airspace 
Areas Designated as Surface Areas, and Class E Airspace Areas Extending 
Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth, are 
published in paragraph 6002 and 6005, of FAA Order 7400.11E dated July 
21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Offshore Airspace Areas, Class E Airspace 
Areas Designated as Surface Areas, and Class E Airspace Areas Extending 
Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth listed in 
this document will be subsequently published in the Order.

Differences From the NPRM

    In the NPRM published in the Federal Register (85 FR 59220; 
September 21, 2020) proposal and amendment sections, the FAA proposed a 
technical amendment to 33 terminal facilities, five navigational aids 
(NAVAIDS), and three sets of geographic coordinate assigned airspace in 
the Offshore Airspace areas legal descriptions contained in FAA Order 
7400.11 Section 6007, 6002, and 6005. After further review, the FAA 
identified that 10 facilities (Chevak, AK; Chignik, AK; King Salmon, 
AK; Kodiak, AK; Manokotak, AK; Nome, AK; Perryville, AK; Shaktoolik, 
AK; St. Michael, AK; and Tooksook Bay, AK) and five navigation aids 
(Biorka Island, AK; Glacier River, AK; Middleton Island, AK; Nome, AK; 
and Kotzebue, AK) contained language in the legal description excluding 
airspace beyond 12 NM from the coastline. The FAA determined that Air 
Traffic Facilities are using Terminal Arrival Areas (TAA) for most of 
the approaches associated with these locations. These TAAs cover 30 NM 
from an established waypoint and extend into offshore airspace beyond 
12 NM from the coastline. If the exclusionary language were allowed to 
take effect, these areas would be without controlled airspace. In 
addition, some of these locations are further constrained because the 
airspace beyond 12 NM provides airspace for Missed Approach holding and 
vectoring of aircraft from an airway to the Initial Approach Fix and 
the terminal environment. The FAA determined that these locations 
should be retained in the associated Offshore Airspace Areas to provide 
the airspace needed for these operations until an airspace review can 
be conducted and these procedures safely be brought into compliance, 
while maintaining the required controlled airspace. This rule corrects 
this error in the Rule section.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

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 
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 legal 
descriptions for certain Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska to separate 
Terminal Airspace Areas from Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, 
Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska 
qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental 
Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq) and its implementing regulations at 
40 CFR part 1500, 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). As such, this action is not expected to result 
in any potentially significant environmental impacts. 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 that no extraordinary circumstances exist that 
warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental 
impact study.
