SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Additions

    On 4/27/2012 (77 FR 25146-25147); 5/18/2012 (77 FR 29596); 6/1/2012 
(77 FR 32591-32592); 6/8/2012 (77 FR 34026-34027; and 6/15/2012 (77 FR 
35942-35944), the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or 
Severely Disabled published notices of proposed additions to the 
Procurement List.
    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the products and 
services and impact of the additions on the current or most recent 
contractors, the Committee has determined that the products and 
services listed below are suitable for procurement by the Federal 
Government under 41 U.S.C. 8501-8506 and 41 CFR 51-2.4.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification

    I certify that the following action will not have a significant 
impact on a substantial number of small entities. The major factors 
considered for this certification were:
    1. The action will not result in any additional reporting, 
recordkeeping or other compliance requirements for small entities other 
than the small organizations that will furnish the products and 
services to the Government.
    2. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish 
the products and services to the Government.
    3. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would 
accomplish the objectives of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act (41 USC 8501-
8506) in connection with the products and services proposed for 
addition to the Procurement List.

End of Certification

    Accordingly, the following products and services are added to the

    A comment was received from a Department of the Army civilian 
program staff member who expressed opposition to adding the Combat 
Arms Ear Plugs (ear plugs) to the Procurement List due to his 
concern that it could impact on-going studies into other ear 
protection for Army soldiers. The Army program office subsequently 
withdrew their objection and indicated their support for adding the 
ear plugs to the Procurement List while acknowledging that the Army 
may continue other ear protection studies if it is determined 
appropriate.
    Accordingly, following a deliberative review of all information, 
the Committee has determined that it is appropriate to add the ear 
plugs specified by the National Stock Numbers (NSNs) referenced to 
the Procurement List.
