    This rule finalizes an interim rule that implemented changes in the 
Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT[supreg])-
registry requirements at FAR subpart 23.7. The FAR requirement to

requirement to procure EPEAT[supreg]-registered products. There is no 
significant economic impact on small businesses.
