Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2021–0086, in the Federal Register (86 FR 14293; March 15, 2021), revoking V–271 and amending V–285. The proposed revocation and amendment actions were due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Manistee, MI, VOR/DME navigational aid. 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 JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1.

PO 00000 52961 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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.

The FAA has determined that this action of revoking V–271 and amending V–285, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Manistee, MI, VOR/DME navigational aid, 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. Accordingly, the FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study. * List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule revises the regulations governing a request or application for an investigation under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, as amended (‘‘Section 232’’). The changes in this final rule will increase the transparency of Section 232 investigations by requiring the submission of a public version of an application for an investigation from an interested party. The changes made in this final rule still allow an interested party to submit classified national security information and/or business confidential information when submitting an application for an investigation. SUMMARY: This final rule is effective September 24, 2021. DATES: For questions regarding this final rule, contact Erika Maynard at 202–482–5572 or via email Erika.Maynard@ bis.doc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Background This final rule revises the requirements in §§ 705.5 (Request or application for an investigation) and 705.6 (Confidential information) of the National Security Industrial Base Regulations (‘‘NSIBR’’) (15 CFR parts 700 through 709) to increase the transparency of Section 232 investigations by requiring an application for an investigation by an interested party be submitted publicly. Section 705.5 specifies the procedures for submitting a request or application for an investigation under Section 232. Section 705.6 specifies the requirements for the submission of confidential information (classified national security information or business confidential information) to the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) at any stage of a Section 232 investigation and as part of an application for an investigation from an interested party. In order to enhance transparency and aid public understanding of applications for Section 232 investigations submitted by interested parties, as well as, when warranted, allowing public comments on such applications (for example, when a Federal Register notice is published soliciting comments on an investigation), the Department of Commerce has determined that interested parties applying for a Section 232 investigation that include business confidential information or classified national security information in their submission must simultaneously submit a public version of their application to BIS. In order to implement this change in the Section 232 investigation process, this final rule makes the following changes to part 705 of the NSIBR: In § 705.5, this final rule revises paragraph (a) by adding a sentence to require that an application for an investigation from an interested party containing business confidential information include a public version of the entire application in writing accompanying their submission. This final rule also adds a sentence to paragraph (a) to specify that the application, if it includes business confidential information submitted in confidence pursuant to § 705.6, must contain a public summary of the business confidential information providing sufficient detail to permit a reasonable understanding of the substance of the information, and, if summarization is not possible, the application must make that claim and accompany it by a full explanation of its basis. The revisions to paragraph (a) also include guidance on how to summarize E:\FR\FM\24SER1.SGM 24SER1

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 modifies the airway 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-2021-0086, in the Federal Register (86 FR 14293; March 15, 2021), 
revoking V-271 and amending V-285. The proposed revocation and 
amendment actions were due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR 
portion of the Manistee, MI, VOR/DME navigational aid. 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 
JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The airways 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 JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations 
and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 
15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists Class 
A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by revoking V-271 and amending V-
285. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Manistee, 
MI, VOR/DME has made this action necessary.
    The VOR Federal airway amendment actions are described below.
    V-271: V-271 extends between the Manistee, MI, VOR/DME and the 
Escanaba, MI, VOR/DME. The airway is revoked in its entirety.
    V-285: V-285 extends between the Brickyard, IN, VOR/Tactical Air 
Navigation (VORTAC) and the Traverse City, MI, VOR/DME. The portion of 
the airway between the White Cloud, MI, VOR/DME and the Traverse City, 
MI, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway 
remain as charted.
    All navigational aid radials in the VOR Federal airway description 
listed below are unchanged and stated in True degrees.
    FAA Order JO 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 
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 action of revoking V-271 and 
amending V-285, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion 
of the Manistee, MI, VOR/DME navigational aid, 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. Accordingly, the FAA 
has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant 
preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact 
study.
