SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Environmental Protection Agency 
published in the Federal Register of January 27, 2003, a proposed rule 
(68 FR 4012) related to the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) 
program. In FR Doc. 03-1624, published on January 27, 2003, a 
typographical error was made in the listing of a product name.
    In FR Doc. 03-1624, published on January 23, 2003 (68 FR 4012), 
under ``Supplementary Information'', section II, ``Administrative 
Requirements'', make the following correction: on page 4013, in the 
second full paragraph of the second column, correct the product name 
``H Galen HOPES'' to read ``H Galden HFPEs'' in both places in the 
paragraph where this error occurs.

Administrative Requirements

    Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that 
notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary 
to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing 
notice and an opportunity for public comment. We have determined that 
there is good cause for making today's rule final without prior 
proposal and opportunity for comment because we are merely correcting 
an incorrect citation in a previous action. Thus, notice and public 
procedure are unnecessary. We find that this constitutes good cause 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).
    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this 
correction is not a ``significant regulatory action'' and is therefore 
not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). 
Because the EPA has made a ``good cause'' finding that this correction 
is not subject to notice and comment requirements under the 
Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute, it is not subject to 
the regulatory flexibility provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). In addition, 
this correction does not significantly or uniquely affect small 
governments or impose a significant intergovernmental mandate, as 
described in sections 203 and 204 of the UMRA. This correction also 
does not significantly or uniquely affect the communities of tribal 
governments, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, 
November 6, 2000). This correction does not have substantial direct 
effects on the States, or on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 
43255, August 10, 1999). This correction also is not subject to 
Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997) because it is not 
economically significant. This rule is not a ``significant energy 
action'' as defined in Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning 
Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or 
Use (66 FR 28355 (May 22, 2001) because it is not likely to have a 
significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of 
energy.
    This correction does not involve technical standards; thus, the 
requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and 
Advancement Act (NTTAA) of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272) do not apply. This 
correction also does not involve special consideration of environmental 
justice related issues as required by Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 
7629, February 16, 1994). This correction does not impose an 
information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The EPA's compliance 
with these statutes and Executive Orders for the underlying rule is 
discussed in the rule for the Listing of Substitutes for Ozone-
Depleting Substances; Final Rule and Proposed Rule.
