SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This document corrects an error pertaining to revisions to definitions made in the final rule. Specifically, the Office intended to change the listed definition of “Roster” to “Roster or register.” The Code of Federal Regulations editors informed the Office that the original Federal Register instruction to “revise” the definition was incorrect. Rather, the correct instruction should be to “remove and add” the intended definition. This document corrects that instruction.

In FR Doc. 2021-10528, appearing on page 28442 in the Federal Register of Wednesday, May 26, 2021, the following correction is made:

[Corrected]
Start Amendment Part

On page 28452, in the first column, in part 11, correct amendatory instruction 4 to read as follows:
