This rule ensures that the authentication of OIG documents is conducted by the Inspector General, who may certify that a copy of a requested document is authentic, true, and correct. This rule relates to internal agency management. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553, notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity for comment are not required. This rule may be made effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Further, this rule is exempt from the provisions of Executive Order 12866 because it relates to internal agency management. In addition, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act relating to an initial and final regulatory flexibility analysis (5 U.S.C. 603, 604) are not applicable to this final rule because USDA was not required to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking under 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law. Finally, this action does not require review by Congress because it is not a rule as defined in 5 U.S.C. 804.

Background Ex-Im Bank recently reviewed its existing regulations to ensure that they accurately reflect the Bank’s current operating procedures. The review revealed that minor, nonsubstantive revisions are necessary to part 407 (governing the public observation of ExIm Bank meetings) and part 403 (governing the procedures for handling and safeguarding classified information). The review also indicated the need for a regulation implementing the Bank’s statutory authority to collect conference and publication fees. B. Regulatory Changes Part 407 This Part contains Ex-Im Bank’s regulations governing the public observation of its Board of Director meetings, promulgated in part under the Government in the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. 552b(g). Several provisions within this part make reference to the ‘‘Executive Committee of the Board of PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Directors,’’ an entity that no longer exists. The amendment deletes these references. A couple of provisions also make reference to regularly scheduled Board meetings as being held on Thursdays at 9 a.m. The meetings are now held at 9:30 a.m., and the amendments reflect this change. Section 403.11 This section concerns classification, declassification and safeguarding of national security information and details enforcement and investigation procedures. Subsection 403.11(b)(12) currently requires Ex-Im Bank to consult with the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division prior to taking action against an employee in connection with an unauthorized disclosure of classified information. Disclosures of classified information are now handled by the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and the amendment reflects this change.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Eclipse Aviation Corporation Model (Eclipse) EA500 airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect the fuel filler adapters for primer and/or paint in the surround and, if present, remove the primer and/or paint. This AD results from an observation during a factory walk-around that the fuel filler surround was primed instead of being bare metal. We are issuing this AD to inspect and, if necessary, remove any paint and/or primer to restore the fuel filler adapter lightning strike protection. A lightning strike on the filler cap with insulating primer on the surround could result in the strike not dissipating to the surround. This could lead to arcing and ignition of fuel vapor inside the fuel tank. DATES: This AD becomes effective on November 27, 2007. On November 27, 2007, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD. We must receive any comments on this AD by January 28, 2008. ADDRESSES: Use one of the following addresses to comment on this AD. • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The aircraft type certification requires compliance to 14 CFR 23.954, Fuel system lightning protection. During the lightning protection testing of certain Eclipse Model EA500 airplanes, it was determined that the fuel filler surround required exposed bare metal to dissipate arc products when the fuel filler cap is struck by lightning. We were notified by Eclipse that, during a factory walkaround, they observed that the fuel filler surround was primed instead of being bare metal. The affected airplanes are only those with the extended tip tanks (ETT). A lightning strike on the filler cap with insulating primer on the surround could result in the strike not dissipating to the surround. This could lead to arcing and ignition of fuel vapor inside the fuel tank. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Eclipse Aviation Corporation Alert Service Bulletin SB 500–57–007, Rev A, dated October 12, 2007, and Eclipse Aviation Corporation Alert Service Bulletin SB 500–57–007, Rev B, dated October 23, 2007. The service information describes procedures for inspecting the fuel filler fitting surround for primer and/or paint and removing the primer and/or paint if found. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design.

The review revealed that minor, nonsubstantive revisions are necessary 
to part 407 (governing the public observation of Ex-Im Bank meetings)
