ACTION: Final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Introduction 1. Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 1 and Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) implementing regulations at 5 CFR Part 1320, the Commission is required to display OMB control numbers and expiration dates of those control numbers on Commission information collections and forms. The Commission also provides OMB control numbers in its regulations at 18 CFR 389.101. This rule amends that regulation by providing that OMB control numbers for Commission information collections will henceforth no longer be provided in the Commission’s regulations but instead will be provided on the Commission’s website. II. Discussion 2. The purpose of this rule is to ensure that the public has the most current OMB control numbers for Commission information collections. Providing the OMB control numbers on the Commission’s website is the most efficient and timely way to provide that information to the public. Therefore, rather than continually revising 18 CFR 389.101, the Commission will henceforth provide the public with the most up-to-date information on OMB control numbers at the Information Collections page at https://www.ferc.gov (https://www.ferc.gov/enforcement1 44 U.S.C. 3501. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:51 Oct 01, 2021 Jkt 256001 III. Information Collection Statement 3. OMB approves certain information collection requirements imposed by agency rule.2 However, this rule does not contain any new or additional information collection requirements. Therefore, compliance with OMB’s regulations is not required. IV. Environmental Analysis 4. The Commission is required to prepare an Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement for any action that may have a significant adverse effect on the human environment.3 5. Part 380 of the Commission’s regulations lists exemptions to the requirement to draft an Environmental Analysis or Environmental Impact Statement. Included is an exemption for procedural, ministerial, or internal administrative actions.4 Accordingly, this rulemaking is exempt from the requirement to draft such documents under that provision. V. Regulatory Flexibility Act 6. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA) 5 generally requires a description and analysis of final rules that will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule concerns a modification of current Commission regulations and practices, by directing the public to where OMB control numbers are located. The Commission certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact upon participants in Commission proceedings. An analysis under the RFA is therefore not required. VI.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    1. Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 \1\ and Office 
of Management and Budget's (OMB) implementing regulations at 5 CFR Part 
1320, the Commission is required to display OMB control numbers and 
expiration dates of those control numbers on Commission information 
collections and forms. The Commission also provides OMB control numbers 
in its regulations at 18 CFR 389.101. This rule amends that regulation 
by providing that OMB control numbers for Commission information 
collections will henceforth no longer be provided in the Commission's 
regulations but instead will be provided on the Commission's website.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 44 U.S.C. 3501.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Discussion

    2. The purpose of this rule is to ensure that the public has the 
most current OMB control numbers for Commission information 
collections. Providing the OMB control numbers on the Commission's 
website is the most efficient and timely way to provide that 
information to the public. Therefore, rather than continually revising 
18 CFR 389.101, the Commission will henceforth provide the public with 
the most up-to-date information on OMB control numbers at the 
Information Collections page at https://www.ferc.gov (https://www.ferc.gov/enforcement-legal/legal/information-collections). This 
rule accordingly revises 18 CFR 389.101 to direct the public to the 
Commission's website for OMB control numbers for Commission information 
collections.

III. Information Collection Statement

    3. OMB approves certain information collection requirements imposed 
by agency rule.\2\ However, this rule does not contain any new or 
additional information collection requirements. Therefore, compliance 
with OMB's regulations is not required.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 5 CFR 1320.12.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

IV. Environmental Analysis

    4. The Commission is required to prepare an Environmental 
Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement for any action that may 
have a significant adverse effect on the human environment.\3\

Act, Order No. 486, 52 FR 47897, FERC Stats. & Regs. ] 30,783 (Dec.

    5. Part 380 of the Commission's regulations lists exemptions to the 
requirement to draft an Environmental Analysis or Environmental Impact 
Statement. Included is an exemption for procedural, ministerial, or 
internal administrative actions.\4\ Accordingly, this rulemaking is 
exempt from the requirement to draft such documents under that 
provision.

V. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    6. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA) \5\ generally 
requires a description and analysis of final rules that will have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
This rule concerns a modification of current Commission regulations and 
practices, by directing the public to where OMB control numbers are 
located. The Commission certifies that it will not have a significant 
economic impact upon participants in Commission proceedings. An 
analysis under the RFA is therefore not required.
