SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 2, 2015, the APO/Dockets Unit changed its location from Room 1870 to Room 18022. This rule updates the regulations to reflect this room change. On October 1, 2013, the Import Administration was renamed Enforcement and Compliance. See Import Administration; Change of Agency Name, 78 FR 62417 (October 22, 2013). On November 20, 2014, Enforcement and Compliance published the final rule updating the name of the electronic filing system from “IA ACCESS” to “ACCESS.” Enforcement and Compliance; Change of Electronic Filing System Name, 79 FR 69046 (November 20, 2014). This rule updates the regulations to reflect the web address so that it conforms with the name change. Thus, “http://iaaccess.trade.gov” is changed to “https://access.trade.gov”. In addition, the location of the ACCESS Handbook on Electronic Filing Procedures (ACCESS Handbook) has moved to the ACCESS Web site. Thus, references to the location of the ACCESS Handbook are changed from the web address “http://www.trade.gov/​ia” to “https://access.trade.gov”.

Rulemaking Requirements

1. This final rule has been determined to be not significant under Executive Order 12866.

2. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), good cause exists to waive the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring advance notice and the opportunity for public comment. Notice and comment are not required for this rule because they are unnecessary. This rule involves a nonsubstantive change to the regulations to update the APO/Dockets room number and the electronic filing and ACCESS Handbook web addresses. This rule does not impact any substantive rights or obligations. The changes made by this rule need to be implemented without further delay to avoid the confusion caused by references to the previous room number that is no longer used by the APO/Dockets Unit and the changed web addresses. No other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule. Accordingly, this rule is issued in final form. For the reasons listed above, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the 30-day delay in effectiveness is also waived for good cause as this rule involves nonsubstantive changes to the regulations to update the APO/Dockets room number and two web addresses. This rule does not contain any provisions that require regulated entities to come into compliance and failure to implement it immediately could cause unnecessary confusion for the public.

3. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required by the Administrative Procedure Act or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.) are not applicable. Accordingly, no final regulatory flexibility analysis is required and none has been prepared.
