Office of the Secretary

29 CFR Parts 2, 11, 14, 16, 20, 22, 70, 71, 75, 90, 95, 96, 97, 98,

Department of Labor Regulatory Review and Update

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Department of Labor.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendments.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor (DOL) is amending existing regulations 
to update obsolete non-substantive or nomenclature references in the 
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This action is intended to improve 
the accuracy of the agency's regulations and does not impose any new 
regulatory or technical requirements.

DATES: Effective Date: July 9, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathleen Franks, U.S. Department of 
Labor, Room S-2312, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210, 
Telephone (202) 693-5959.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL's strategic outcome goal 4.2 measures 
the agency's success in creating a regulatory structure that promotes 
compliance flexibility and reduces regulatory burden. As part of this 
strategic goal, DOL is conducting an ongoing review of its regulations 
governing labor standards, pensions, health care, and worker safety to 
ensure that references in the CFR are accurate and current.
    This final rule corrects or removes obsolete non-substantive or 
nomenclature references in the CFR. For example, this rule changes 
references to superseded laws, adds CFR citations for OMB Circulars, 
and updates cross-references to standards established under other 
authorities such as the simplified acquisition threshold cross-
referenced in 29 CFR part 95 and Federal audit thresholds in 29 CFR 
parts 96 and 99.
    Publication of this document constitutes final action on these 
changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Notice 
of Proposed Rulemaking is unnecessary since the agency is merely 
updating non-substantive and nomenclature references.

Executive Order 12866

    This rule has been drafted and reviewed in accordance with 
Executive Order 12866, section 1(b), Principles of Regulations. The 
agency has determined that this rule is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866, section 3(f), Regulatory Planning 
and Review. Accordingly, there is no requirement for an assessment of 
potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that order.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this rule 
under section 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601) 
pertaining to regulatory flexibility do not apply to this rule. See 5 
U.S.C. 601(2).

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule is not subject to section 350(h) of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501) since it does not contain any new 
collection of information requirements.

Publication in Final

    The Department has determined that these amendments need not be 
published as a proposed rule, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A), since 
these changes are interpretive, procedural in nature, or relate to 
agency organization. Because this final rule does not make substantive 
amendments, the Department of Labor has determined that delaying the 
effective date of the rule is unnecessary and good cause exists under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to make this rule effective immediately upon 
publication in the Federal Register.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996

    This rule is not classified as a ``rule'' under Chapter 8 of the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, because it 
is a rule pertaining to agency organization, procedure, or practice 
that does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-
agency parties. See 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(C).
