Updates to Standards Incorporated by Reference; Reapproved ASTM 
Standards; Technical Amendment

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.

ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in 
the docket are part of docket USCG-2012-0866 and are available for 
inspection or copying at the Docket Management Facility (M-30), U.S.

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

[[Page 13244]]

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standard in question is not outdated or superseded as of the year of 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. 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.

[[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 Sec.  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.

[[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.
