Details:

  • Description:
    This Regulatory Impact Review (RIR)/Endangered Species Act Section 4(b)(2) Preparatory Assessment/Final Regulatory Flexibility Act Analysis (FRFA) (hereinafter together, “RIR/4(b)(2) Preparatory Assessment/FRFA”) addresses the designation of critical habitat (CH) for Arctic ringed seals in waters of the northern Bering Sea, Chukchi Sea, and Beaufort Sea, off the coast of Alaska, under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA). The purpose of this RIR/4(b)(2) Preparatory Assessment/FRFA is to identify and evaluate the economic, socioeconomic, and other costs and benefits associated with designating CH for the Arctic ringed seal, and assist the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) in determining whether the benefits of excluding any particular area from the CH designation (CHD) outweigh the benefits of inclusion (16 U.S.C. 1533). This information allows the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to address the requirements of Executive Orders (EOs) 12866 and 13211,1 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.; and Pub. L. 104-121).
