National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards for Aerosol 
Coatings--Addition of Dimethyl Carbonate, Benzotrifluoride, and 
Hexamethyldisiloxane to Table of Reactivity Factors

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The EPA is taking direct final action to amend the National 
Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards for Aerosol Coatings final 
rule, which is a rule that establishes national reactivity-based 
emission standards for the aerosol coatings category (aerosol spray 
paints) under the Clean Air Act, published elsewhere in the Federal

[[Page 14280]]

Register. This direct final action adds three compounds: dimethyl 
carbonate, benzotrifluoride and hexamethyldisiloxane, and their 
associated reactivity factors to the aerosol coatings reactivity rule's 
table of reactivity factors based on petitions received from regulated 
entities. This action also revises two tables in the final rule, and 
corrects a typographical error in a test method reference.

DATES: This rule is effective on June 7, 2012 without further notice, 
unless the EPA receives adverse comment by April 23, 2012. If the EPA 
receives adverse comment, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the 
Federal Register informing the public that some or all of the 
amendments in the final rule will not take effect.

I. Why is the EPA using a direct final rule?

    The EPA is publishing this direct final rule without a prior 
proposed rule because we view this as a noncontroversial action and 
anticipate no adverse comment. Section 59.511(j) of the final rule 
states that if a regulated entity identifies a VOC that is needed for 
an aerosol formulation that is not listed in Tables 2A, 2B, or 2C, it 
is assigned a default reactivity factor (RF) of 22.04/Z g 
O3/g VOC. However, regulated entities may petition the 
Agency to add a compound to Table 2A, 2B, or 2C provided that the 
petitions include the chemical name, CAS number, a statement certifying 
the intent to use the compound in an aerosol coatings product, and 
adequate information to evaluate the reactivity of the compound and 
assign a RF value consistent with the values for the other compounds 
listed in Table 2A. Since publication of the final rule (73 FR 15604, 
March 24, 2008), compounds have been added to Table 2A following the 
same procedure (74 FR 29595, June 23, 2009). The amendments to the 
aerosol coatings final rule described herein consist of adding three 
compounds to Table 2A, and their associated RFs and Chemical Abstract 
Service (CAS) numbers, based on petitions received by the Agency and 
consistent with Section 59.511(j) of the final rule. The amendments do 
not make material changes to the rule. This action also revises Table 1 
of the final rule by moving the units from the table heading to the 
reactivity limits column, revises Tables 2A, 2B, and 2C by assigning 
units to the reactivity factor column, and corrects a typographical 
error in a test method reference. However, in the ``Proposed Rules'' 
section of this Federal Register, we are publishing a separate document 
that will serve as the proposed rule to the National Volatile Organic 
Compound Emission Standards for Aerosol Coatings (40 CFR part 59) if 
adverse comments are received on this direct final rule. We will not 
institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so at this time. For further 
information about commenting on this rule, see the ADDRESSES section of 
this document.

[[Page 14281]]

    If the EPA receives adverse comment, we will publish a timely 
withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that some or 
all of the amendments in this direct final rule will not take effect. 
We would address all public comments in any subsequent final rule based 
on the proposed rule.

II. Does this action apply to me?

    The entities potentially affected by this direct final rule are the 
same entities that are subject to the aerosol coatings final rule. The 
entities affected by the aerosol coatings final rule include: 
Manufacturers, processors, distributors or importers of aerosol 
coatings for sale or distribution in the United States, and 
manufacturers, processors, distributors or importers who supply the 
entities listed above with aerosol coatings for sale or distribution in 
interstate commerce in the United States.

III. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for the EPA?

    A. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to the EPA 
through www.regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of 
the information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk 
or CD-ROM that you mail to the EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-
ROM as CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM 
the specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    B. Tips for Preparing Your Comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
     Identify the rulemaking by docket number and other 
identifying information (subject heading, Federal Register date and 
page number).
     Follow directions--The agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
     Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives 
and substitute language for your requested changes.
     Describe any assumptions and provide any technical 
information and/or data that you used.
     If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how 
you arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
     Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns, and 
suggest alternatives.
     Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the 
use of profanity or personal threats.
     Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

IV. What are the amendments made by this direct final rule?

    This direct final rule adds three compounds to Table 2A--Reactivity 
Factors: dimethyl carbonate, benzotrifluoride, hexamethyldisiloxane, 
and their corresponding CAS numbers and RFs (see Table A). This action 
is in accordance with Section 59.511(j) of the final rule which allows 
regulated entities to petition the Agency to add compounds to Table 2A, 
2B, or 2C provided that the petition includes the chemical name, CAS 
number, a statement certifying the intent to use the compound in an 
aerosol coatings product, and adequate information to evaluate the 
reactivity of the compound and assign a RF value consistent with the 
values for the other compounds listed in Table 2A (73 FR 15604, March 
24, 2008; 74 FR 29595, June 23, 2009). EPA received petitions from KOWA 
America, Raymond Regulatory Resources, Seymour of Sycamore, and 3M, 
requesting the addition of the three compounds to Table 2A.
    This action also revises Table 1 of the final rule by moving the 
units, expressed as grams of ozone per gram of product (g 
O3/g product), from the table heading to the column titled, 
``Reactivity Limit''; revises Tables 2A, 2B, and 2C by adding units, 
expressed as grams of ozone per gram of VOC (g O3/g VOC), to 
the column titled, ``Reactivity Factors''; and corrects a test method 
typographical error by replacing the phrase ``California Air Resources 
Board Method 3-0'' in 40 CFR 59.515(a)(1) with ``California Air 
Resources Board Method 310.''

         Table A--Compounds Added to Table of Reactivity Factors
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                            Reactivity
                Compound                      CAS No.     factor (g O3/g
                                                               VOC)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Benzotrifluoride........................         98-08-8            0.26
Hexamethyldisiloxane....................        107-46-0            0.00
Dimethyl carbonate......................        616-38-6            0.06
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As is the case for the other compounds in Table 2A, the RFs 
assigned to the three compounds are consistent with the maximum 
incremental reactivity (MIR) values in California's aerosol coatings 
regulation (Title 17, California Code of Regulations, Division 3, 
Chapter 1, Subchapter 8.6, Article 1, Sec.  94700).
    In the instance of benzotrifluoride and dimethyl carbonate, their 
RFs were previously published in the EPA's original proposal for this 
rule; therefore, the information on their reactivity had been 
adequately evaluated and RFs assigned (72 FR 38592, July 16, 2007). 
When the rule was finalized, only those compounds known to EPA to be 
used in aerosol coating formulations were included in Table 2A (73 FR 
15604, March 24, 2008). At the time the original rule was finalized, 
EPA did not know of any aerosol coating formulations in which 
benzotrifluoride and dimethyl carbonate were used, so their RFs were 
not included in Table 2A. The RFs for benzotrifluoride and dimethyl 
carbonate are consistent with the California MIR values that have been 
effective since July 18, 2001.
    For hexamethyldisiloxane, an RF value was not included in the 
original proposal for this rule. California assigned an MIR value of 
zero to hexamethyldisiloxane, effective October 2, 2010. The most 
recent MIR values published by Dr. William Carter at the University of 
California at Riverside, upon which the California MIR values are 
based, lists the MIR for hexamethyldisiloxane as -0.025 g 
O3/g VOC (see  http://www.cert.ucr.edu/~carter/SAPRC/
scales07.xls). This MIR value indicates that hexamethyldisiloxane acts 
as a slight inhibitor to ozone formation. Based on this information, 
the EPA believes that

[[Page 14282]]

a RF of zero is appropriate for the purposes of this regulation.
    Comments on this direct final action are to be limited to issues 
directly associated with adding these three compounds, and their 
associated RFs to Table 2A.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive 
Order 13563: Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review

    This action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under the 
terms of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735 October 4, 1993) and is, 
therefore, not subject to review under Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 
(76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011).

B. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This action does not impose any new information collection burden 
because it serves to add compounds to Table 2A of the rule and make 
several clarifying edits. However, the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) has previously approved the information collection requirements 
contained in the existing regulations (40 CFR parts 51 and 59) under 
the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. 
and has assigned OMB control number 2060-0617. The OMB control numbers 
for the EPA's regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act generally requires an agency to 
prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice 
and comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure 
Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, 
and small governmental jurisdictions.
    For purposes of assessing the impacts of this final rule on small 
entities, small entity is defined as: (1) A small business as defined 
by the Small Business Administration's regulations at 13 CFR 121.201; 
(2) a governmental jurisdiction that is a government of a city, county, 
town, school district or special district with a population of less 
than 50,000; and (3) a small organization that is any not-for-profit 
enterprise which is independently owned and operated and is not 
dominant in its field.
    After considering the economic impacts of this final rule on small 
entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In 
determining whether a rule has a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities, the impact of concern is any 
significant adverse economic impact on small entities, since the 
primary purpose of the regulatory flexibility analyses is to identify 
and address regulatory alternatives ``which minimize any significant 
economic impact of the rule on small entities.'' 5 U.S.C. 603 and 604. 
Thus, an agency may certify that a rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities if the rule 
relieves regulatory burden, or otherwise has a positive economic effect 
on all of the small entities subject to the rule.
    This rule will not impose any requirements on small entities. We 
have determined that small businesses will not incur any adverse 
impacts because the EPA is taking this action to amend the aerosol 
coatings rule by adding compounds to Table 2A of the rule and making 
several clarifying edits. These amendments do not create any new 
requirements or burdens, and no costs are associated with these 
amendments.
    We have, therefore, concluded that this final rule will relieve 
regulatory burden for all affected small entities.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    This rule does not contain a federal mandate that may result in 
expenditures of $100 million or more for state, local and tribal 
governments, in the aggregate, or the private sector in any one year. 
Thus, this rule is not subject to the requirements of sections 202 or 
205 of UMRA.
    This rule is also not subject to the requirements of section 203 of 
UMRA because it contains no regulatory requirements that might 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments. In this action, the 
EPA is amending Table 2A by adding three compounds and their associated 
reactivity factors, and making several clarifying edits.

E. Executive Order 13132: Federalism

    This action does not have federalism implications. It will not have 
substantial direct effects 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, as 
specified in Executive Order 13132. This action adds compounds and 
corresponding Chemical Abstract Service numbers and reactivity factors 
to Table 2A of the aerosol coatings rule, and makes several clarifying 
edits. Thus, Executive Order 13132 does not apply to this action.

F. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian 
Tribal Governments

    This action does not have tribal implications, as specified in 
Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action adds 
compounds and corresponding Chemical Abstract Service numbers and 
reactivity factors to Table 2A of the aerosol coatings rule, and makes 
several clarifying edits. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to 
this action.

G. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks

    The EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 
1997) as applying to those regulatory actions that concern health or 
safety risks, such that the analysis required under section 5-501 of 
the Order has the potential to influence the regulation. This action is 
not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it is based solely on 
technology performance.

H. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use

    This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355 
(May 22, 2001)), because it is not a significant regulatory action 
under Executive Order 12866.

I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act

    Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement 
Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104-113, 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) 
directs the EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory 
activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling 
procedures and business practices) that are developed or adopted by 
voluntary consensus standards bodies. NTTAA directs the EPA to provide 
Congress, through OMB, explanations when the agency decides not to use 
available and applicable voluntary consensus standards.
    This action does not involve technical standards. Therefore, the 
EPA did not consider the use of any voluntary consensus standards.

[[Page 14283]]

J. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental 
Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations

    Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629 (Feb. 16, 1994)) establishes 
federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main provision 
directs federal agencies, to the greatest extent practicable and 
permitted by law, to make environmental justice part of their mission 
by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high 
and adverse human health or environmental effects of their programs, 
policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income 
populations in the United States.
    The EPA has determined that this final rule will not have 
disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental 
effects on minority or low-income populations because it does not 
affect the level of protection provided to human health or the 
environment. Further, this action adds compounds to Table 2 of the 
aerosol coatings rule, and corresponding Chemical Abstract Service 
numbers and reactivity factors, and makes several clarifying edits.

K. Congressional Review Act

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, 
to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the 
United States. The EPA will submit a report containing this rule and 
other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of 
Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior 
to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A Major rule cannot 
take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal 
Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2). This rule will be effective June 7, 2012.
