AGENCY:

Department of Energy (DOE).

ACTION:

Final rule; technical amendment.

SUMMARY:

DOE has created a new Office of Health, Safety and Security to strengthen and improve formulation and implementation of health, safety and security policy. Incident to creation of the new office, DOE has transferred certain health, safety and security functions to the new office that previously were carried out by the Office of Environment, Safety and Health and the Office of Security and Safety Performance Assurance. Certain functions related to DOE's responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act have been transferred to the Office of the General Counsel. Other functions outside of the core mission of health, safety and security have been transferred to other DOE offices performing similar or related functions. This notice of final rulemaking makes technical amendments to DOE's regulations to substitute the officials to whom or offices to which functions have been transferred pursuant to the reorganization of offices and functions. DOE also is removing Office of Environment, Safety and Health regulations in 10 CFR part 852 because Congress has transferred that authority to the Department of Labor. Today's regulatory amendments do not alter substantive rights or obligations under current law.

DATES:

Effective Date: This rule is effective on November 28, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

DOE has created a new office to strengthen and improve the health, safety, and security of DOE workers, facilities and the public. The new office, called the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), will help formulate and implement health, safety, environmental, and security policy for DOE, provide assistance to DOE sites, conduct oversight through rigorous field inspections, and carry out enforcement activities previously carried out by the Offices of Environment, Safety and Health (EH) and Security and Safety Performance Assurance (SSA). HSS is led by a Chief Health, Safety and Security Officer who reports directly to the Secretary of Energy.

The HSS office has nine offices dedicated to health, safety and security, which include the Office of Health and Safety; Office of Nuclear Safety and Environment; Office of Corporate Safety Analysis; Office of Enforcement; Office of Independent Oversight; Office of Security Policy; Office of Security Technology and Assistance; Office of Classification; and the National Training Center. In addition, HSS now includes the Office of the Departmental Representative to the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board and the Office of Security Operations.

Functions that were performed by EH or SSA but which are outside the core mission of health, safety and security have been transferred to other DOE program offices performing similar or related functions. The DOE Office of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Policy and Compliance has been transferred to the Office of the General Counsel. DOE's continuity of government program and support for technical review of authorization basis documents, previously performed by SSA, has been transferred to DOE's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Support of safety regulations for newly constructed facilities and new start projects are now the responsibility of the Office of the Under Secretary for Energy, and for new NNSA facilities, the Office of the Under Secretary for Nuclear Security. Management of the Radiological Environment Science Laboratory has been transferred to the Office of Nuclear Energy and the management of the New Brunswick Laboratory has been transferred to the Office of Science to better align those activities with their current programmatic functions. The Office of Management will assume non-safety related quality assurance program elements and the management of DOE's foreign travel and exchange visitor program.

Certain of the functions that were transferred to HSS and the NEPA functions that were transferred to the Office of the General Counsel are subject to regulations in title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations. As a result of the transfers, title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations contains references to DOE program offices and positions that are no longer extant. Today's final rule amends title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations to reflect DOE's new organizational structure and to update addresses that are no longer correct. In addition, DOE takes this opportunity to remove regulations in 10 CFR part 852 made obsolete by the repeal of the statute that authorized those regulations. None of the regulatory amendments in this notice of final rulemaking alter substantive rights or obligations under current law.

This final rule has been approved by the Office of the Secretary of Energy.

II. Procedural Requirements

A. Review Under Executive Order 12866

Today's regulatory action has been determined not to be “a significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review,” 58 FR 51735 (October 4, 1993). Accordingly, this action was not subject to review under that Executive Order by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

B. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires preparation of an initial regulatory flexibility analysis for any rule that by law must be proposed for public comment, unless Start Printed Page 68728the agency certifies that the rule, if promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. As required by Executive Order 13272, “Proper Consideration of Small Entities in Agency Rulemaking,” 67 FR 53461 (August 16, 2002), DOE published procedures and policies to ensure that the potential impacts of its draft rules on small entities are properly considered during the rulemaking process (68 FR 7990, February 19, 2003), and has made them available on the Office of General Counsel's Web site: http://www.gc.doe.gov.

The regulatory amendments in this notice of final rulemaking reflecting transfers of functions and address changes relate solely to internal agency organization, management or personnel, and as such, are not subject to the requirement for a general notice of proposed rulemaking under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Furthermore, it is unnecessary to propose removal of 10 CFR part 852 for public comment because the statutory authority for it has been repealed. Consequently, this rulemaking is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

C. Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act

This final rule does not impose a collection of information requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

D. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act

DOE has concluded that promulgation of this rule falls into a class of actions that would not individually or cumulatively have a significant impact on the human environment, as determined by DOE's regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). Specifically, this rule amends existing regulations without changing the environmental effect of the regulations being amended, and, therefore, is covered under the Categorical Exclusion in paragraph A5 of Appendix A to subpart D, 10 CFR part 1021. Accordingly, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.

E. Review Under Executive Order 13132

Executive Order 13132, “Federalism,” 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 1999) imposes certain requirements on agencies formulating and implementing policies or regulations that preempt State law or that have federalism implications. Agencies are required to examine the constitutional and statutory authority supporting any action that would limit the policymaking discretion of the States and carefully assess the necessity for such actions. The Executive Order also requires agencies to have an accountable process to ensure meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications. On March 14, 2000, DOE published a statement of policy describing the intergovernmental consultation process it will follow in the development of such regulations (65 FR 13735). DOE has examined today's rule and has determined that it does not preempt State law and does not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. No further action is required by Executive Order 13132.

F. Review Under Executive Order 12988

With respect to the review of existing regulations and the promulgation of new regulations, section 3(a) of Executive Order 12988, “Civil Justice Reform” (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996), imposes on Federal agencies the general duty to adhere to the following requirements: (1) Eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity; (2) write regulations to minimize litigation; and (3) provide a clear legal standard for affected conduct rather than a general standard and promote simplification and burden reduction. Section 3(b) of Executive Order 12988 specifically requires that Executive agencies make every reasonable effort to ensure that the regulation: (1) Clearly specifies the preemptive effect, if any; (2) clearly specifies any effect on existing Federal law or regulation; (3) provides a clear legal standard for affected conduct while promoting simplification and burden reduction; (4) specifies the retroactive effect, if any; (5) adequately defines key terms; and (6) addresses other important issues affecting clarity and general draftsmanship under any guidelines issued by the Attorney General. Section 3(c) of Executive Order 12988 requires Executive agencies to review regulations in light of applicable standards in section 3(a) and section 3(b) to determine whether they are met or it is unreasonable to meet one or more of them. DOE has completed the required review and determined that, to the extent permitted by law, this final rule meets the relevant standards of Executive Order 12988.

G. Review Under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4) requires each Federal agency to assess the effects of a Federal regulatory action on State, local, and tribal governments, and the private sector. DOE has determined that today's regulatory action does not impose a Federal mandate on State, local or tribal governments or on the private sector.

H. Review Under the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 1999

Section 654 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 1999 (Pub. L. 105-277) requires Federal agencies to issue a Family Policymaking Assessment for any rule that may affect family well-being. This rule would not have any impact on the autonomy or integrity of the family as an institution. Accordingly, DOE has concluded that it is not necessary to prepare a Family Policymaking Assessment.

I. Review Under the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 2001

The Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 2001 (44 U.S.C. 3516, note) provides for agencies to review most disseminations of information to the public under guidelines established by each agency pursuant to general guidelines issued by OMB. OMB's guidelines were published at 67 FR 8452 (February 22, 2002), and DOE's guidelines were published at 67 FR 62446 (October 7, 2002). DOE has reviewed today's notice under the OMB and DOE guidelines and has concluded that it is consistent with applicable policies in those guidelines.

J. Review Under Executive Order 13211

Executive Order 13211, “Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use,” 66 FR 28355 (May 22, 2001) requires Federal agencies to prepare and submit to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget, a Statement of Energy Effects for any proposed significant energy action. A “significant energy action” is defined as any action by an agency that promulgated or is expected to lead to promulgation of a final rule, and that: (1) Is a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, or any successor order; and (2) is likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy, or (3) is designated by the Administrator of Start Printed Page 68729OIRA as a significant energy action. For any proposed significant energy action, the agency must give a detailed statement of any adverse effects on energy supply, distribution, or use should the proposal be implemented, and of reasonable alternatives to the action and their expected benefits on energy supply, distribution, and use. Today's regulatory action is not a significant energy action. Accordingly, DOE has not prepared a Statement of Energy Effects.

K. Congressional Notification

As required by 5 U.S.C. 801, DOE will submit to Congress a report regarding the issuance of today's final rule prior to the effective date set forth at the outset of this notice. The report will state that it has been determined that the rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 801(2).
