Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

Many of the Coast Guard's regulations incorporate by reference consensus standards that are developed by organizations other than the Coast Guard. This final rule updates references to standards developed by ASTM International, that have been reapproved, without change, since their incorporation into Coast Guard regulation. This rule does not address standards that have changed substantively, and it will not have any substantive impact on the regulated public.

DATES:

This rule is effective March 29, 2013. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register on March 29, 2013.

II. Regulatory History

The Coast Guard is issuing this final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment, pursuant to section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency, for good cause, finds that those procedures are “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” As discussed in more detail in this final rule, the industry standards adopted in this rule are merely reapproved editions of the previously incorporated standards. Reapproving a Start Printed Page 13244standard is a maintenance activity that confirms to the reader that the standard in question is not outdated or superseded as of the year of reapproval. This rule does not change any substantive regulatory requirements or pose any anticipated costs to the public, and will have no substantive effect on the public. Because the revisions implemented by this rule are all non-substantive changes without effect on the public, the Coast Guard finds that notice and public comment on the changes is unnecessary, and that good cause therefore exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) for forgoing notice and comment procedures.

III. Basis and Purpose

The purpose of this rule is to update references to incorporated industry standards that have been reapproved, without change, by the standards organization that developed them. In this rule, we focus on standards developed by ASTM International (ASTM). We also are standardizing usage of ASTM's name, which was formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, updating the listed contact information for publishers, and reformatting certain sections for ease of use.

In updating our references, we ensure that the publications we have incorporated by reference are reasonably available to the public as required by 1 CFR part 51. The Coast Guard's authority to revise its regulations is outlined in 33 CFR 1.05-1, as well as in the authority citations for each part of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) amended by this rule. Incorporation by reference is governed by 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 15 U.S.C. 272 note, and 1 CFR part 51.

IV. Background

A. History of Incorporation by Reference

Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. They may include specifications for materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices. The Coast Guard has actively participated in the development of industry standards for the safety of marine equipment at the International Maritime Organization, the International Organization for Standardization, ASTM, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and other standards development bodies. The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or would otherwise be impractical.

When appropriate, the Coast Guard incorporates industry standards, and particularly voluntary consensus standards, into its regulations. This process, known as incorporation by reference, gives the content of incorporated standards the same force as regulations published in the CFR. Incorporation by reference occurs as part of a rulemaking and is governed by specific rules, which are available at 1 CFR part 51. Under these rules the Coast Guard may only incorporate a specific edition of a standard, and that standard must be reasonably available to the class of persons affected by it. Because standards organizations revise and replace standards over time, the specific edition incorporated by the Coast Guard eventually may become outdated, unavailable, or both. This can lead to conflicts between domestic and international requirements, or between regulatory requirements and modern best practices. Therefore, the Coast Guard reviews its incorporations by reference and updates them if necessary.

B. Reapproved Standards

Standards organizations sometimes “reapprove” standards without modifying them. Reapproving a standard is a maintenance activity that confirms to the reader that the standard in question is not outdated or superseded as of the year of reapproval. For example, the standard known as ASTM A 575-96, “Standard Specification for Steel Bars, Carbon, Merchant Quality, M-Grades,” was originally published in 1996; when it was reapproved in 2002, it became known as ASTM A 575-96 (Reapproved 2002). It was reapproved again in 2007 as ASTM A 575-96 (Reapproved 2007). The substantive content remains the same as in the 1996 edition.

Because the Coast Guard must incorporate a specific edition, however, reapproval can cause the Coast Guard's incorporation to become outdated or confusing even if the substance of the incorporated standard is unchanged. For example, the Coast Guard incorporated ASTM A 575-96. Although the content of the standard has not changed since the Coast Guard incorporated it, the current version is ASTM A 575-96 (Reapproved 2007) and the incorporated ASTM A 575-96 has been superseded. In some cases, superseded standards are no longer readily available.

This rule updates regulatory references to certain incorporated ASTM standards that have been reapproved without change. We chose to focus on ASTM standards in this rule because we had recently verified that several such standards had been reapproved without change. The Coast Guard is aware that standards developed by other organizations may also have been reapproved and may also require updating, and that some of the Coast Guard's other incorporations may require updating for other reasons. The Coast Guard intends to address those incorporations in future publications in the Federal Register. To that end, we published a request for comments on November 30, 2012, (77 FR 71369) to solicit public input as to which incorporations by reference require updating.

All of the incorporated standards in Table 1 have been reapproved without change. For that reason, incorporating the most recent versions does not change the substantive regulatory requirements and will have no substantive impact on the regulated public.

The Coast Guard is also standardizing usage of the name “ASTM International,” formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials, as well as reformatting the reapproved document titles to match the capitalization and punctuation used in the most current publications. These changes are administrative in nature, and will not affect the regulated public in a substantive manner.Start Printed Page 13246

B. Reformatting Involving Standards Other Than Reapproved ASTM Standards

Some of the reapproved ASTM standards appear in older sections of the CFR that did not include paragraph designations. The lack of paragraph designations makes reading and cross-referencing these sections more difficult. This rule reformats those sections using the Office of the Federal Register's preferred paragraph designation format. The reformatted sections are 46 CFR 32.01-1, 76.01-2, 153.4, 160.077-5, 160.176-4, and 162.027-1. This rule also updates publisher contact information in these sections when appropriate.

Although these reformatted sections contain incorporated standards other than reapproved ASTM standards, this rule does not update those references, incorporate newer versions, or make any other substantive change to those references. With the exception of the reapproved ASTM standards discussed above, the content of the reformatted sections remains the same as it was prior to this rule. Suggestions for updates to these sections may be submitted to the Coast Guard using the contact information in ADDRESSES.

C. Removal of 33 CFR 155.140(c)(3)

In developing this rule, the Coast Guard became aware that 33 CFR 155.140(c)(3) indicated standard ASTM F 722-82 was incorporated by reference in Appendices A and B of 33 CFR part 155. Appendices A and B do not contain any reference to ASTM F 722-82, however, and subsequent research determined this reference to be a typographical error. This rule removes the reference to ASTM F 722-82 from § 155.140. As there is no regulatory requirement in Part 155 associated with the standard, the removal can have no substantive impact on the public.

VI. Incorporation by Reference

The Director of the Federal Register has approved the material in 33 CFR 126.5, 127.003, and 154.106; and 46 CFR 32.01-1, 34.01-15, 39.10-5, 54.01-1, 56.01-2, 76.01-2, 95.01-2, 108.101, 153.4, 160.077-5, 160.176-4, 162.027-1, and 193.01-3 for incorporation by reference under 5 U.S.C. 552 and 1 CFR part 51. Copies of the material are available from the sources listed in these sections.

VII. Regulatory Analyses

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes or executive orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

Executive Orders 12866 (“Regulatory Planning and Review”) and 13563 (“Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review”) direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This final rule has not been designated a “significant regulatory action” under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order.

This final rule makes non-substantive changes throughout Titles 33 and 46 of the CFR. As discussed in more detail in Section V (Discussion of Changes) of this preamble, the industry standards adopted in this rule are merely reapproved editions of the previously incorporated standards. Reapproving a standard is a maintenance activity that confirms to the reader that the standard in question is not outdated or superseded as of the year of reapproval. Therefore, this rule does not change any substantive regulatory requirements and will have no substantive effect on the public. As a result, we expect no additional cost to the industry. No additional labor or resources would be required by the regulated public.

We expect this final rule to be beneficial to the public and to the maritime industry because it will make the Coast Guard's references to these standards consistent with the current standards available for use by industry and will ensure that the publications we have incorporated by reference are reasonably available to the public.

B. Small Entities

This rule is not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking and, therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612). The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply when the agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247).

D. Collection of Information

This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

E. Federalism

A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if the rule has 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. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights.Start Printed Page 13247

H. Civil Justice Reform

This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

K. Energy Effects

We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a “significant energy action” under that order because it is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211.

L. Technical Standards

The NTTAA (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.

This rule uses the following voluntary consensus standards:

M. Environment

We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2, figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(a) of the Instruction. This rule falls under the category of editorial or procedural regulations since it involves the adoption of voluntary consensus standards already in effect. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
