SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Paragraphs (a), (b), (c), and (e) of Appendix A to 5 CFR Chapter XIV set forth the addresses, telephone numbers, and fax numbers of the headquarters offices of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Chief Administrative Law Judge of the Authority, and the Federal Service Impasses Panel, respectively. 5 CFR 2416.170(c) provides for the filing of matters relating to enforcement of nondiscrimination on the basis of handicap; 5 CFR 2424.10 provides the address and telephone number of the Authority's Collaboration and Alternative Dispute Resolution Program; 5 CFR 2429.24(a) specifies the place and method of filing documents with the Authority; and 5 CFR 2471.2, 2471.4, 2472.3, and 2472.5 concern communications with the Federal Service Impasses Panel. Because of the relocation of those offices, and the change in certain telephone numbers, it is necessary to revise these provisions of the agency's regulations.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification

Pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 605(b), the Federal Labor Relations Authority has determined that these regulations, as amended, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, because they apply to federal employees, federal agencies, and labor organizations representing federal employees.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

These regulatory changes will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100,000,000 or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996

These rules are not major rules as defined by section 804 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996. These rules will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreign-based companies in domestic and export markets.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

These regulations contain no information collection or record keeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3507 et seq.)
