This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On March 7, 2001, the Commission issued a final rule banning dive sticks that did not meet specified requirements. 66 FR 13645. That rule amended 16 CFR 1500.86(a) to add dive sticks that meet the specified requirements to the list of articles exempted from classification as a banned toy or other article intended for use by children. A citation in § 1500.86(a)(7) and (8) was incorrect.
As published, the final regulation contains erroneous citations which may be misleading and need to be clarified.
The Administrative Procedure Act
Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”) authorizes an agency to dispense with notice and comment procedures when the agency, for good cause, finds that those procedures are “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” This amendment corrects typographical errors and does not make any substantive change. Accordingly, the Commission finds that notice and comment on this technical correction is unnecessary.
The APA also authorizes an agency, “for good cause found and published with the rule,” to dispense with the otherwise applicable requirement that a rule be published in the Federal Register at least 30 days before its effective date. 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). The Commission hereby finds that a 30 day delay of the effective date is unnecessary because this technical amendment merely corrects typographical errors.Start List of Subjects
