II. Regulatory History

We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A), the Coast Guard finds that this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements, because these changes involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the Coast Guard finds that notice and comment procedures are unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments, and that these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register. It is unnecessary to delay the effective date of this rule because the final rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments that have no substantive effect on the public.

III. Background and Purpose

On the 1st of October each year, the printed editions of Titles 46 and 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) are re-codified. This rule, which becomes effective September 29, 2014 makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 46. There are no technical or editorial corrections for Title 49 this year. This rule does not create or change any substantive requirements. For a comprehensive list of each change in Title 46 in the CFR, see the Table of Changes available in the docket for this rulemaking.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

This rule corrects misspellings and punctuation in sections throughout Title 46 in the CFR. For a list of each correction, see the Table of Misspellings available in the docket for this rulemaking.

This rule amends 46 CFR 6.06(b)(2) to reflect a name change from “Military Sea Transportation Service” to “Military Sealift Command.”

This rule amends 46 CFR 10.211(c) to strike the phrase “Beginning April 15, 2009,” as it is unnecessary. When originally drafted, this section was to become effective April 15, 2009. However, the rule containing this provision did not publish prior to that date, so the qualifying date was and is unnecessary.

This rule corrects a typographical error in 46 CFR 11.201(h) by removing an extra (1) before the sentence beginning with “The firefighting course must have been completed. . . .” The (1) is incorrectly included in a paragraph already labeled (1).

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.301(g)(3) and 12.601(c)(3) by correcting the phrase “was completed before March 24, 2014 . . .” to “commenced before March 24, 2014.” This change corrects a typo that is inconsistent with other provisions of 11.301. This change also reflects the intent of the Implementation of the Amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, and Changes to National Endorsements (STCW) final rule, and is supported by the final rule's preamble. 78 FR 77862. The STCW regulations were written with timing and implementation in mind. The training required by the STCW final rule will take some time to implement. To avoid a delay in the availability of qualified candidates, the existing training would need to be sufficient, in the interim, to qualify officers for the intended credential. Therefore, training that was “commenced by March 24, 2014” was the true intent of the STCW regulations, and therefore is corrected in this amendment.

This rule amends several sections of 46 CFR part 11 to align language in the regulations with what is actually written on Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC) endorsements. For a list of corrections, see Table 1.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.309(a)(4)(v), 11.317(a)(3)(iii), 11.319(a)(4)(v), 11.321(a)(3)(iii), 11.329(a)(3)(iii), and 11.335(a)(3)(iii) to include proficiency in survival craft and rescue boats other than lifeboats and fast rescue boats (Personal Survival Craft-limited). This change clarifies the language in these sections to be consistent with 46 CFR 12.617(a)(2) and the intent of the STCW regulations, since an endorsement holder could be required to hold one of several Personal Survival Craft endorsements.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.329(e) to replace an erroneously printed table. The current table is a repeat of Table 11.327(d), and the correct table was included in the final rule text submitted to the Office of the Federal Register. The correct table, which appears below in the regulatory text, was available for notice and comment in the STCW SNPRM, and there were no comments made regarding that table. [78 FR 77796].

This rule amends Table 1 to 11.331(e) to include a missing footnote. As in Tables 11.325(d) footnote 5, 11.327(d) footnote 4, and 11.329(e) footnote 1, the table should limit vessels less than 500 GRT for both Designated Duty Engineer (DDE) entries. This change is consistent with the limitations placed on DDEs in Part 11 and therefore the added footnote is a reminder of those limitations.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.335(b) to remove a redundant phrase. The phrase that will be omitted from paragraph (b) is repeated in subparagraph (b)(2). Removal of this phrase brings clarity to the paragraph but does not change the requirements.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.493(b) and (c) to correct misstated terminology. The words “an endorsement as” will be removed before “master (OSV)” as the master (OSV) of 1,600 GRT/3,000 GT or more is not the name of an endorsement.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.495(b) and (c) to correct misstated terminology. The words “for an endorsement as” will be removed before “chief mate (OSV)”, as chief mate (OSV) of 1,600 GRT/3,000 GT or more is not the name of an endorsement.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.555(a)(2) to align the paragraph with the correct endorsement. We add the word “assistant” because this section applies to assistant engineers.

This rule amends paragraphs (b) through (e) in 46 CFR 11.821 to correct terminology relating to an endorsement. The high-speed craft type-rating endorsement (TRE) was erroneously referred to as a “certificate;” however, in 46 CFR 11.109(a)(44), it is identified as one of the national officer endorsements to an MMC. This was an oversight in drafting.

This rule amends 46 CFR 11.903(c)(1) to remove the phrase “and STCW endorsement,” as it is unnecessary. This paragraph speaks to national endorsements and does not require a discussion with regard to STCW endorsements. Therefore, the reference to an STCW endorsement is removed.

In Table 2 of 46 CFR 11.910, under the National Maritime Law heading, the title of “Licensing and Certification of Seaman” is changed to “Credentialing of Seaman.” This change reflects the movement from a license to a credential. The change does not alter the substance of the relevant course, but rather changes the title of the course to improve accuracy.

This rule amends the following sections to remove repetitive tables: 46 CFR 24.05-1(a), 70.05-1(a), 90.05-1(a), and 188.05-1(a). The repetitive tables are duplications of information contained in Table 2.01-7(A), and therefore we replace the tables with a reference back to the complete, original table published as Table 2.01-7(A) in 46 CFR 2.01-7(a). The removal of the duplicative tables will alleviate any errors in reproducing the tables and ensure that any changes to Table 2.01-7(A) will be consistent throughout Title 46.

This rule amends 46 CFR 28.50, 28.255(a)(1), 35.20-1(a), 78.05-1(a), 78.10-1, 97.05-1(a), 97.10-5, 131.910, 167.65-45(a), and 196.05-1(a), to reflect an agency name change from “the Defense Mapping Agency Hydrographic/Topographic Center” or “the National Imagery and Mapping Agency” to “the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.” Sections 35.20-1(c), 78.05-1(b), 97.05-1(b), 167.65-45(b), and 196.05-1(b) are amended to incorporate the same name change as well as to expand the weekly notices to national coverage of local notices to mariners instead of being geographically limited. A Web site is added where the notices are accessible to the public free of charge.

Further, these sections will incorporate the name change and also the new method of access for worldwide weekly notices. The former system in which worldwide information is accessed is no longer available. Therefore, we revise the sections to include a reference to a Web site where the notices are accessible to the public.

This rule amends 46 CFR 52.25-5 to correct a typographical error. The word “of” is repeated twice. This rule will remove that repetition.

This rule amends 46 CFR 76.10-10 to remove the “-T/ALL” designation from its section heading. This designation is not applicable to its subpart and was included erroneously.

This rule amends 46 CFR 153.1119(c)(1) to update the contact information for the Coast Guard's Office of Design and Engineering Standards (CG-ENG). This final rule updates the phone number to 202-372-1420, and adds the HazmatStandards@uscg.mil email address.

V. Regulatory Analyses

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive Orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and E.O.s.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

E.O.s 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 Start Printed Page 58273necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility.

This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866 as supplemented by E.O. 13563, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of E.O. 12866. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not reviewed it under E.O. 12866. Nonetheless, we assessed the costs and benefits of the rule to ascertain its probable impacts on industry. Because this rule involves non-substantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any additional costs on the public.

B. Small Entities

Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, rules exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on small entities. Nevertheless, we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.

There is no cost to this rule, and we do not expect it to have an impact on small entities, because the provisions of this rule are technical and non-substantive. This rule will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, Public Law 104-121, we offer to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If this rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction, and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact Mr. Paul Crissy by telephone at 202-372-1093, or via email at Paul.H.Crissy@uscg.mil. 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 E.O. 13132 (“Federalism”) if it 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 is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132.

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 E.O. 12630 (“Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights”).

H. Civil Justice Reform

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

I. Protection of Children

We have analyzed this rule under E.O. 13045 (“Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks”). This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

This rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 13175 (“Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments”), because it would 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 E.O. 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 E.O. 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of OMB's 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 E.O. 13211.

L. Technical Standards

The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act, codified as a note to 15 U.S.C. 272, directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through OMB, 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 final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards in this rule.Start Printed Page 58274

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, 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 involves amendments to regulations which are editorial or procedural. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket for this rule where indicated under ADDRESSES.
