SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On January 6, 2005, the NRC announced a realignment of functions of the Office of the Executive Director for Operations. With the realignment, some of the functions assigned previously to the Deputy Executive Director for Management Services are assigned to the Deputy Executive Director for Information Services and Administration and Chief Information Officer.

Because these amendments constitute minor administrative changes to the Start Printed Page 30897regulations concerning agency organization, the notice and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). The amendments are effective upon publication in the Federal Register. Good cause exists under 5 U.S.C 553(d) to dispense with the usual 30-day delay in the effective date of the final rule, because the amendments are of a minor and administrative nature dealing with changes to certain CFR sections, which do not require action by any person or entity regulated by the NRC. Further, the final rule does not change the substantive responsibilities of any person or entity regulated by the NRC.

Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion

The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2). Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor an environmental assessment has been prepared for this final rule.

Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

This final rule does not contain new or amended information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Existing requirements were approved by the Office of Management and Budget, approval numbers 3150-0053; 3150-0044; 3150-0010; 3150-0130; 3150-0020; and 3150-0011.

Public Protection Notification

The NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a request for information of an information collection requirement unless the requesting document displays a currently valid OMB control number.
