SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Schedule for Rating Disabilities, 38 CFR Part 4, Appendices A, B, and C have not been updated since July 1, 1988. These Appendices are tools for users of the Schedule for Rating Disabilities. The Appendices reflect changes to the diagnostic criteria in the Schedule for Rating Disabilities.

We have amended the Appendices to add changes to the Schedule for Rating Disabilities since the Appendices were last updated. Additionally, we removed language in Appendix A that showed when a diagnostic code was updated to correct spelling, revise text, or other additional changes, which had no impact on the disability code. Those changes were incorporated within the text when amended. All diagnostic codes in Appendix A will now be categorized by when they were added, removed, whether the criterion was amended, and whether the disability evaluation was amended. We will continue to include the date for historical purposes. We revised Appendices B and C to provide the current diagnostic codes and disability terminology. We will continue to update the Appendices as the Schedule for Rating Disabilities is revised.

Administrative Procedures Act

This final rule merely replaces inaccurate examples and does not alter the content of the regulations. Accordingly, there is a basis for dispensing with prior notice and comment and the delayed effective date provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This document contains no provisions constituting a collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501-3521).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Secretary hereby certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities as they are defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612. This final rule would not affect any small entities. Only VA beneficiaries could be directly affected. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 605(b), this final rule is exempt from the initial and final regulatory flexibility analysis requirements of sections 603 and 604.

Executive Order 12866

Executive Order 12866 directs agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity). The Executive Order classifies a “significant regulatory action,” requiring review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) unless OMB waives such review, as any regulatory action that is likely to result in a rule that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or tribal governments or communities; (2) Create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) Materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) Raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President's priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order.

The economic, interagency, budgetary, legal, and policy implications of this final rule have been examined and it has been determined not to be a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

Unfunded Mandates

The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires, at 2 U.S.C. 1532, that agencies prepare an assessment of anticipated costs and benefits before issuing any rule that may result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more (adjusted annually for inflation) in any year. This final rule would have no such effect on State, local, and tribal governments, or on the private sector.

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Numbers and Titles

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance program numbers and titles for this final are 64.104, Pension for Non-Service-Connected Disability for Veterans and 64.109, Veterans Compensation for Service-Connected Disability.
