Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 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 amends the Class E surface airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fort Dodge Regional Airport, Fort Dodge, IA, by updating geographic coordinates of the airport in the airspace legal description to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under 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 qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5.a.

ACTION: Final rule; corrections. AGENCY: The Department of Justice (‘‘Department’’) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register on April 26, 2022, with an effective date of August 24, 2022. The final rule amended Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (‘‘ATF’’) regulations by removing and replacing the regulatory definitions of ‘‘firearm jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:06 Aug 19, 2022 Jkt 256001 frame or receiver’’ and ‘‘frame or receiver.’’ The document also amended ATF’s definitions of ‘‘firearm’’ and ‘‘gunsmith’’ to clarify the meaning of those terms, and to provide definitions of terms such as ‘‘complete weapon,’’ ‘‘complete muffler or silencer device,’’ ‘‘multi-piece frame or receiver,’’ ‘‘privately made firearm,’’ and ‘‘readily’’ for purposes of clarity given advancements in firearms technology. Additionally, the final rule amended ATF’s regulations on marking and recordkeeping that are necessary to implement the new or amended definitions. This document makes some minor technical corrections to the final rule, which otherwise remains the same as previously published. DATES: Effective August 24, 2022. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kimberly Keravuori by email at ORA@ atf.gov; by mail at Office of Regulatory Affairs, Enforcement Programs and Services, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, U.S. Department of Justice, 99 New York Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20226; or by telephone at (202) 648–7070 (this is not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 26, 2022, the Department issued a final rule titled ‘‘Definition of ‘Frame or Receiver’ and Identification of Firearms,’’ amending ATF’s regulations in 27 CFR parts 447, 478, and 479 (87 FR 24652), with an effective date of August 24, 2022. Due to the complexity of this rulemaking process and the resulting significant number of comments and revisions in response, the final rule inadvertently contained some technical errors in the regulatory text that this document corrects. As reflected below, this document corrects the following technical errors in the regulatory text as adopted in the final rule: • Incorrectly labeling subparagraphs in § 479.102(a)(3) and (b)(3) with letters instead of Roman numerals. • Omitting part of the Federal Register date instruction in § 478.12(f)(2), with the result that the rule as published contained the instruction parenthetical instead of the actual date. • Causing confusion by including the word ‘‘and’’ between two terms describing handgun grips in § 478.12(a)(3), instead of indicating that the second term was an example of the first term. • Leaving out a reference to the manufacturer role of people identified as ‘‘you’’ in § 479.102(a)(6), and leaving out the words ‘‘or remade’’ in the phrase ‘‘remanufactured or remade’’ in the PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 51249 definition of ‘‘Privately made firearm (PMF)’’ in § 478.11. In both instances, these omissions could create confusion about the actors in those provisions. • Failing to replace the term ‘‘firearm’’ with ‘‘frame or receiver’’ in the last sentence of the definition of ‘‘Importer’s or manufacturer’s serial number’’ in § 478.11, as intended, thus unintentionally broadening the requirement to preserve the licensee name, city, or state wherever it may appear on a fully assembled weapon. Instead, the purpose of this provision is to require preservation of the licensee name, city, or state only on the frame or receiver of any such weapon. • Failing to include a cross-reference to the definition of ‘‘privately made firearm’’ in § 479.11, potentially creating inconsistencies between the regulations. • Failing to replace a broad reference in § 478.125(i) to requirements ‘‘in this part’’ with the specific section reference to the timeframe required by § 478.125(e) for firearms that better identifies and clarifies those requirements for users. • And, in four paragraphs, §§ 478.12(a)(1), (a)(4)(iv), and (d) and 478.92(a)(1)(iii), inadvertently indicating that a sear (or equivalent) component was the primary energized component of a handgun as a result of the placement of the terms in relation to each other, also creating confusion for readers. This document corrects those technical errors before the final rule’s effective date. § 478.11 [Corrected] 1. On page 24735, in the first column, the definition of ‘‘Importer’s or manufacturer’s serial number’’ is corrected by removing the last word ‘‘firearm’’ and adding in its place the words ‘‘frame or receiver’’. ■ 2. On page 24735, in the seventh line of the second column, the definition of ‘‘Privately made firearm (PMF)’’ is corrected in the parenthetical at the end by adding the words ‘‘or remade’’ after the word ‘‘remanufactured’’. ■ 3. On page 24735, in the third column, § 478.12 is corrected by revising paragraph (a)(1) and the second sentence in paragraph (a)(3) to read as follows: ■ § 478.12 [Corrected] (a) * * * (1) The term ‘‘frame’’ means the part of a handgun, or variants thereof, that provides housing or a structure for the component (i.e., sear or equivalent) designed to hold back the hammer, striker, bolt, or similar primary E:\FR\FM\22AUR1.SGM 22AUR1

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 
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 amends the Class E surface airspace and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fort Dodge Regional 
Airport, Fort Dodge, IA, by updating geographic coordinates of the 
airport in the airspace legal description to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database. This update is administrative change and does 
not change the airspace boundaries or operating requirements.

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 amendment to 14 CFR part 71:
    Amends the Class E surface airspace at Fort Dodge Regional Airport, 
Fort Dodge, IA, by updating the geographic coordinates of the airport 
to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; and updates the 
outdated terms ``Notice to Airmen'' with ``Notice to Air Missions'' and 
``Airport/Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'';
    And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Fort Dodge Regional Airport by updating the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    This action is an administrative change and does not affect the 
airspace boundaries or operating requirements; therefore, notice and 
public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary.
    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
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 qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
