ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain transport category airplanes. That AD currently requires modification of the reinforced flight deck door. This new AD expands the applicability of the existing AD and requires other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. These other actions include modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program to require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door. This AD is prompted by reports of discrepancies with the reinforced flight deck door. We are issuing this AD to prevent inadvertent release of the decompression latch and consequent opening of the decompression panel in the flight deck door, or penetration of the flight deck door by smoke or shrapnel, any of which could result in injury to the airplane flightcrew. This AD also requires finding and fixing wire chafing, which could result in arcing, fire, and/ or reduced controllability of the airplane. This AD becomes effective July 19, 2005. DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of July 19, 2005. On July 25, 2003 (68 FR 41063, July 10, 2003), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain other publications listed in the AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA proposed to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) with an AD to supersede AD 2003–14–04, amendment 39–13223 (68 FR 41063, July 10, 2003). The existing AD applies to certain Boeing Model 737–200, 737–300, 737–400, 737–500, 737–600, 737–700, 737–800, 737–900, 757–200, and 757–300 series airplanes; and McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10– 10F, DC–10–30, DC–10–30F, DC–10–40, MD–10–30F, MD–11, and MD–11F airplanes. The proposed AD was published in the Federal Register on September 3, 2004 (69 FR 53848), to continue to require modification of the reinforced flight deck door. The proposed AD would also expand the applicability of the existing AD and require other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. These other actions include modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program to require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door. E:\FR\FM\14JNR1.SGM 14JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 113 / Tuesday, June 14, 2005 / Rules and Regulations testing interval. We have not changed the final rule in this regard. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. We have considered the comments that have been submitted on the proposed AD. Request To Omit Requirement To Strengthen Smoke Screen Support and Conditional Support for the Proposed AD One commenter supports the intent and language of the proposed AD. A second commenter supports the proposed AD, provided that an adequate supply of parts is available for the modification to be accomplished within the proposed 18-month compliance time. C&D Aerospace has indicated that they will be able to supply an adequate number of parts during the proposed compliance time. We have not changed the AD in this regard. Request To Omit Requirement To Reduce Test Intervals One commenter does not support reducing the interval for the repetitive functional test of the decompression panels of the flight deck door, which would be required by paragraph (i) of the proposed AD. (Paragraph (i) of the proposed AD would require revising the FAA-approved maintenance inspection program to include the information in C&D Aerospace Report CDRB22–69, Revision E, dated November 8, 2002. Revision E of that report reduces the repetitive interval for functional testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door.) The commenter states that the proposed AD does not state a justification for a reduction in the testing intervals. The commenter states that the current inspection interval is sufficient. The commenter recommends that we gather and review more operational data before we increase the testing interval. We do not concur. Our decision to require incorporating Revision E of C&D Aerospace Report CDRB22–69, and the increased testing frequency specified in that document, is based on analysis by the manufacturer, not on in-service findings. Testing of the decompression panels has been required only for a short time, and few inspections have been accomplished. For this reason, a lack of detected failures would not justify maintaining the current inspection interval. We also note that reinforced flight deck doors delivered after November 8, 2002 (the issue/ approval date of Revision E of C&D Aerospace Report CDRB22–69), are already subject to the reduced repetitive VerDate jul<14>2003 19:17 Jun 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 One commenter requests that we do not require strengthening the smoke screen on the flight deck door’s decompression panels. The commenter states that this action is not cited in the proposed AD, and no service bulletin has been issued to support the strengthening of the smoke screen. We do not agree. We find that it is necessary to require strengthening of the smoke screen on the flight deck door’s decompression panels. This action is included in the modification required by paragraph (j) of this AD. The rationale for this decision is stated in the ‘‘Actions Since Existing AD Was Issued’’ section of the proposed AD: ‘‘* * * strengthening the smoke screens will allow the smoke screens to close properly and prevent smoke from entering the flight deck in the event of a fire in the airplane. Smoke in the flight deck could hinder the flightcrew’s ability to continue to fly the airplane safely.’’ The Relevant Service Information section of the proposed AD specifies that procedures for modifying the smoke screens are included in C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200– 52–02, Revision 2, dated September 29, 2003 (for certain McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10, MD–10, and MD–11 airplanes), and in C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B251200–52–01, dated April 30, 2003 (for certain Model MD– 11 airplanes). Table 3 of this AD references these service bulletins. We have not changed this AD in this regard. Request To Omit Requirement To Install Placard One commenter requests that we omit from paragraph (j) of the proposed AD the proposed requirement to install a placard. The commenter points out that the service bulletins specified in Table 3 of the proposed AD for Boeing Model 737 and 757 series airplanes include instructions for installing placards to show that the service bulletin has been done. The commenter states that it has contacted C&D Aerospace and C&D Aerospace is unable to provide additional placards should the original one be lost or need replacement. The commenter is concerned that the proposed wording of the AD would require it to install and maintain the placards to be in compliance with the proposed AD. We agree that installing the placard is not necessary to address the unsafe PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 34317 condition. We have revised paragraph (j) of this AD to state that, where the service bulletins referenced in Table 3 of this AD specify installing a placard to show that the service bulletin has been accomplished, this AD does not require that action. Request To Omit Requirement To Rework Wiring One commenter does not support the proposed requirement in paragraph (l)(1) that would require reworking the wiring for the flight deck door. The commenter feels that the rework is not needed, even though the door manufacturer has provided information to modify the airplane. The commenter states that its established operational procedures, including but not limited to a pre-flight operational check of the flight deck door by the flightcrew, obviate the need for the proposed wiring rework. Moreover, the commenter states that other operational procedures make it unlikely that security would be adversely affected if we were to omit the requirement to rework the wiring. We do not agree. As we stated in the proposed AD, we have determined that an unsafe condition exists related to certain wiring in the area of the flight deck door on affected airplanes. For an unsafe condition such as this one, we can better ensure long-term continued operational safety by requiring modifications or design changes to remove the source of the problem, rather than by requiring repetitive inspections or operational tests. Long-term inspections or tests may not provide the degree of safety necessary for the transport airplane fleet. This, coupled with a better understanding of the human factors associated with numerous repetitive inspections/tests, has led us to consider placing less emphasis on special procedures and more emphasis on design improvements. The requirement in this AD to rework wiring in the area of the flight deck door is consistent with these considerations. We have not changed the AD in this regard. Request for Credit for Accomplishment of Previous Service Bulletin Revisions One commenter requests that we give credit for actions required by paragraph (j) of this AD that were accomplished in accordance with the issues of the service bulletins listed in the table below. The commenter states that the instructions for the modifications in these previous revisions are similar to the instructions in the service bulletins listed in Table 3 of the proposed AD.

However, the Revision Transmittal Sheet is dated March 7, 2003. Since Revision 2 of that service bulletin is dated February 20, 2003, we have determined that March 7, 2003, is the correct date for Revision 3 of the service bulletin.) We concur with the intent of the commenter’s request. Actions accomplished before the effective date of this AD in accordance with the applicable service bulletin revisions identified by the commenter are acceptable for compliance with the corresponding requirement of paragraph (j) of this AD. However, after the effective date of this AD, required actions must be accomplished in accordance with the applicable service bulletin identified in Table 3 of this AD. We have added a new paragraph (l) to this AD (and re-identified subsequent paragraphs accordingly) and have added Table 4 to this AD to give credit for actions accomplished before the effective date of this AD. Request To Refer to Latest Service Bulletin Revision and Give Credit for Prior Issues One commenter requests that we revise paragraph (l)(1) of the proposed AD (which is identified as paragraph (m)(1) of this AD) to require C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001–52A05, Revision 3, dated October 3, 2003. Paragraph (l)(1) of the proposed AD refers to C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001–52A05, Revision 2, dated June 19, 2003, as the appropriate source of service information for the actions required by that paragraph. The commenter also requests that we give credit for actions done in accordance with C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001–52A05, dated April 17, 2003; VerDate jul<14>2003 19:17 Jun 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 Revision level ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... ......................................................................... Revision 1, dated May 14, 2003; and Revision 2. We concur with the intent of the commenter’s request. The procedures in C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001–52A05, Revision 3, are similar to those in Revision 2 of that service bulletin. We have revised paragraph (m)(1) of this AD to require the rework of wiring be done in accordance with Revision 3 of the service bulletin. We have also revised paragraph (m)(1) to give credit for actions done before the effective date of this AD in accordance with the original issue, Revision 1, or Revision 2 of that service bulletin. However, only Revision 3 of the service bulletin is acceptable for actions accomplished on or after the effective date of this AD. Request To Correct Incorrect References One commenter requests that we revise the proposed AD to correct incorrect references. The commenter notes that the Costs of Compliance section and Table 3 of the proposed AD refer to C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B251200–52–01, dated April 30, 2003, as an ‘‘alert’’ service bulletin. The commenter points out that C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B251200– 52–01 was not released as an alert service bulletin. We have revised all references to this service bulletin in this AD to remove ‘‘alert.’’ The commenter also notes that Table 1 does not refer to the correct supplemental type certificate (STC) that applies to Boeing Model 757 series airplanes. The commenter notes that the applicable STC number is ST01334LA. We have revised Table 1 of this AD accordingly. Request To Refer to Latest Service Bulletin Issue One commenter requests that we revise Table 2 of the proposed AD to PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Original ...................... 1 ................................ 2 ................................

The commenter notes that Revision 2 is the latest issue of that service bulletin. We do not concur with this request. Table 2 of this AD restates the applicability of AD 2003–14–04 to establish which airplanes are subject to the actions required by paragraphs (f) and (g) of this AD. (Paragraphs (f) and (g) restate the requirements of AD 2003– 14–04.) C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200–52–02, Revision 1, was the issue referenced in the applicability of AD 2003–14–04. We note that paragraph (f)(3) of this AD, which requires accomplishment of certain actions in C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200–52–02, references both Revisions 1 and 2 of that service bulletin. We have made no change in this regard. Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the comments that have been submitted, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously. We have determined that these changes will neither increase the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD. Costs of Compliance There are about 3,423 airplanes of the affected design worldwide. The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with the currently required actions that this AD will continue to require, at an average labor rate of $65 per work hour.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD), which applies to certain transport category airplanes. That AD 
currently requires modification of the reinforced flight deck door. 
This new AD expands the applicability of the existing AD and requires 
other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. These other 
actions include modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in 
the area, and revising the maintenance program to require more frequent 
testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door. This AD is 
prompted by reports of discrepancies with the reinforced flight deck 
door. We are issuing this AD to prevent inadvertent release of the 
decompression latch and consequent opening of the decompression panel 
in the flight deck door, or penetration of the flight deck door by 
smoke or shrapnel, any of which could result in injury to the airplane 
flightcrew. This AD also requires finding and fixing wire chafing, 
which could result in arcing, fire, and/or reduced controllability of 
the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective July 19, 2005.
    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in 
the AD is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of July 
19, 2005.
    On July 25, 2003 (68 FR 41063, July 10, 2003), the Director of the 
Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain 
other publications listed in the AD.

ADDRESSES: For service information identified in this AD, contact 
Boeing Commercial Airplanes, P.O. Box 3707, Seattle, Washington 98124-
2207; or C&D Aerospace, 5701 Bolsa Avenue, Huntington Beach, California 
92647-2063.

Docket: The AD docket contains the proposed AD, comments, and any final 
disposition. You can examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://
dms.dot.gov, or in person at the Docket Management Facility office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647-
5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the U.S. 
Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh Street, SW., room PL-401,

telephone (562) 627-5224; fax (562) 627-5210.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA proposed to amend part 39 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) with an AD to supersede 
AD 2003-14-04, amendment 39-13223 (68 FR 41063, July 10, 2003). The 
existing AD applies to certain Boeing Model 737-200, 737-300, 737-400, 
737-500, 737-600, 737-700, 737-800, 737-900, 757-200, and 757-300 
series airplanes; and McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10F, DC-10-30, DC-
10-30F, DC-10-40, MD-10-30F, MD-11, and MD-11F airplanes. The proposed 
AD was published in the Federal Register on September 3, 2004 (69 FR 
53848), to continue to require modification of the reinforced flight 
deck door. The proposed AD would also expand the applicability of the 
existing AD and require other actions related to the reinforced flight 
deck door. These other actions include modifying the door, inspecting 
and modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program 
to require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the 
flight deck door.

[[Page 34317]]

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. We have considered the comments that have been 
submitted on the proposed AD.

Support and Conditional Support for the Proposed AD

    One commenter supports the intent and language of the proposed AD.
    A second commenter supports the proposed AD, provided that an 
adequate supply of parts is available for the modification to be 
accomplished within the proposed 18-month compliance time.
    C&D Aerospace has indicated that they will be able to supply an 
adequate number of parts during the proposed compliance time. We have 
not changed the AD in this regard.

Request To Omit Requirement To Reduce Test Intervals

    One commenter does not support reducing the interval for the 
repetitive functional test of the decompression panels of the flight 
deck door, which would be required by paragraph (i) of the proposed AD. 
(Paragraph (i) of the proposed AD would require revising the FAA-
approved maintenance inspection program to include the information in 
C&D Aerospace Report CDRB22-69, Revision E, dated November 8, 2002. 
Revision E of that report reduces the repetitive interval for 
functional testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck 
door.) The commenter states that the proposed AD does not state a 
justification for a reduction in the testing intervals. The commenter 
states that the current inspection interval is sufficient. The 
commenter recommends that we gather and review more operational data 
before we increase the testing interval.
    We do not concur. Our decision to require incorporating Revision E 
of C&D Aerospace Report CDRB22-69, and the increased testing frequency 
specified in that document, is based on analysis by the manufacturer, 
not on in-service findings. Testing of the decompression panels has 
been required only for a short time, and few inspections have been 
accomplished. For this reason, a lack of detected failures would not 
justify maintaining the current inspection interval. We also note that 
reinforced flight deck doors delivered after November 8, 2002 (the 
issue/approval date of Revision E of C&D Aerospace Report CDRB22-69), 
are already subject to the reduced repetitive testing interval. We have 
not changed the final rule in this regard.

Request To Omit Requirement To Strengthen Smoke Screen

    One commenter requests that we do not require strengthening the 
smoke screen on the flight deck door's decompression panels. The 
commenter states that this action is not cited in the proposed AD, and 
no service bulletin has been issued to support the strengthening of the 
smoke screen.
    We do not agree. We find that it is necessary to require 
strengthening of the smoke screen on the flight deck door's 
decompression panels. This action is included in the modification 
required by paragraph (j) of this AD. The rationale for this decision 
is stated in the ``Actions Since Existing AD Was Issued'' section of 
the proposed AD: ``* * * strengthening the smoke screens will allow the 
smoke screens to close properly and prevent smoke from entering the 
flight deck in the event of a fire in the airplane. Smoke in the flight 
deck could hinder the flightcrew's ability to continue to fly the 
airplane safely.'' The Relevant Service Information section of the 
proposed AD specifies that procedures for modifying the smoke screens 
are included in C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200-52-02, Revision 
2, dated September 29, 2003 (for certain McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10, 
MD-10, and MD-11 airplanes), and in C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin 
B251200-52-01, dated April 30, 2003 (for certain Model MD-11 
airplanes). Table 3 of this AD references these service bulletins. We 
have not changed this AD in this regard.

Request To Omit Requirement To Install Placard

    One commenter requests that we omit from paragraph (j) of the 
proposed AD the proposed requirement to install a placard. The 
commenter points out that the service bulletins specified in Table 3 of 
the proposed AD for Boeing Model 737 and 757 series airplanes include 
instructions for installing placards to show that the service bulletin 
has been done. The commenter states that it has contacted C&D Aerospace 
and C&D Aerospace is unable to provide additional placards should the 
original one be lost or need replacement. The commenter is concerned 
that the proposed wording of the AD would require it to install and 
maintain the placards to be in compliance with the proposed AD.
    We agree that installing the placard is not necessary to address 
the unsafe condition. We have revised paragraph (j) of this AD to state 
that, where the service bulletins referenced in Table 3 of this AD 
specify installing a placard to show that the service bulletin has been 
accomplished, this AD does not require that action.

Request To Omit Requirement To Rework Wiring

    One commenter does not support the proposed requirement in 
paragraph (l)(1) that would require reworking the wiring for the flight 
deck door. The commenter feels that the rework is not needed, even 
though the door manufacturer has provided information to modify the 
airplane. The commenter states that its established operational 
procedures, including but not limited to a pre-flight operational check 
of the flight deck door by the flightcrew, obviate the need for the 
proposed wiring rework. Moreover, the commenter states that other 
operational procedures make it unlikely that security would be 
adversely affected if we were to omit the requirement to rework the 
wiring.
    We do not agree. As we stated in the proposed AD, we have 
determined that an unsafe condition exists related to certain wiring in 
the area of the flight deck door on affected airplanes. For an unsafe 
condition such as this one, we can better ensure long-term continued 
operational safety by requiring modifications or design changes to 
remove the source of the problem, rather than by requiring repetitive 
inspections or operational tests. Long-term inspections or tests may 
not provide the degree of safety necessary for the transport airplane 
fleet. This, coupled with a better understanding of the human factors 
associated with numerous repetitive inspections/tests, has led us to 
consider placing less emphasis on special procedures and more emphasis 
on design improvements. The requirement in this AD to rework wiring in 
the area of the flight deck door is consistent with these 
considerations. We have not changed the AD in this regard.

Request for Credit for Accomplishment of Previous Service Bulletin 
Revisions

    (The pages of C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B231001-52-02, 
Revision 3, are each dated February 7, 2003. However, the Revision 
Transmittal Sheet is dated March 7, 2003. Since Revision 2 of that 
service bulletin is dated February 20, 2003, we have determined that 
March 7, 2003, is the correct date for Revision 3 of the service 
bulletin.)
    We concur with the intent of the commenter's request. Actions 
accomplished before the effective date of this AD in accordance with 
the applicable service bulletin revisions identified by the commenter 
are acceptable for compliance with the corresponding requirement of 
paragraph (j) of this AD. However, after the effective date of this AD, 
required actions must be accomplished in accordance with the applicable 
service bulletin identified in Table 3 of this AD. We have added a new 
paragraph (l) to this AD (and re-identified subsequent paragraphs 
accordingly) and have added Table 4 to this AD to give credit for 
actions accomplished before the effective date of this AD.

Request To Refer to Latest Service Bulletin Revision and Give Credit 
for Prior Issues

    One commenter requests that we revise paragraph (l)(1) of the 
proposed AD (which is identified as paragraph (m)(1) of this AD) to 
require C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A05, Revision 3, 
dated October 3, 2003. Paragraph (l)(1) of the proposed AD refers to 
C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A05, Revision 2, dated 
June 19, 2003, as the appropriate source of service information for the 
actions required by that paragraph. The commenter also requests that we 
give credit for actions done in accordance with C&D Aerospace Alert 
Service Bulletin B221001-52A05, dated April 17, 2003; Revision 1, dated 
May 14, 2003; and Revision 2.
    We concur with the intent of the commenter's request. The 
procedures in C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A05, 
Revision 3, are similar to those in Revision 2 of that service 
bulletin. We have revised paragraph (m)(1) of this AD to require the 
rework of wiring be done in accordance with Revision 3 of the service 
bulletin. We have also revised paragraph (m)(1) to give credit for 
actions done before the effective date of this AD in accordance with 
the original issue, Revision 1, or Revision 2 of that service bulletin. 
However, only Revision 3 of the service bulletin is acceptable for 
actions accomplished on or after the effective date of this AD.

Request To Correct Incorrect References

    One commenter requests that we revise the proposed AD to correct 
incorrect references. The commenter notes that the Costs of Compliance 
section and Table 3 of the proposed AD refer to C&D Aerospace Service 
Bulletin B251200-52-01, dated April 30, 2003, as an ``alert'' service 
bulletin. The commenter points out that C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin 
B251200-52-01 was not released as an alert service bulletin. We have 
revised all references to this service bulletin in this AD to remove 
``alert.''
    The commenter also notes that Table 1 does not refer to the correct 
supplemental type certificate (STC) that applies to Boeing Model 757 
series airplanes. The commenter notes that the applicable STC number is 
ST01334LA. We have revised Table 1 of this AD accordingly.

Request To Refer to Latest Service Bulletin Issue

    One commenter requests that we revise Table 2 of the proposed AD to 
refer to C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200-52-02, Revision 2, 
dated September 29, 2003, instead of Revision 1, dated June 3, 2003. 
The commenter notes that Revision 2 is the latest issue of that service 
bulletin.
    We do not concur with this request. Table 2 of this AD restates the 
applicability of AD 2003-14-04 to establish which airplanes are subject 
to the actions required by paragraphs (f) and (g) of this AD. 
(Paragraphs (f) and (g) restate the requirements of AD 2003-14-04.) C&D 
Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200-52-02, Revision 1, was the issue 
referenced in the applicability of AD 2003-14-04. We note that 
paragraph (f)(3) of this AD, which requires accomplishment of certain 
actions in C&D Aerospace Service Bulletin B211200-52-02, references 
both Revisions 1 and 2 of that service bulletin. We have made no change 
in this regard.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the 
comments that have been submitted, and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described 
previously. We have determined that these changes will neither increase 
the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    There are about 3,423 airplanes of the affected design worldwide.
    The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators 
to comply with the currently required actions that this AD will 
continue to require, at an average labor rate of $65 per work hour.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, 
describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
subtitle VII, part A, subpart III, section 44701, ``General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We have determined that this AD will not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a 
substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between 
the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power 
and responsibilities among the various levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866;
    (2) Is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and
    (3) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with

this AD. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the 
regulatory evaluation.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD was prompted by reports of discrepancies with the 
reinforced flight deck door. We are issuing this AD to prevent 
inadvertent release of the decompression latch and consequent 
opening of the decompression panel in the flight deck door, or 
penetration of the flight deck door by smoke or shrapnel, any of 
which could result in injury to the airplane flightcrew. We are also 
issuing this AD to find and fix wire chafing, which could result in 
arcing, fire, and/or reduced controllability of the airplane.
    Compliance: (e) You are responsible for having the actions 
required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified, 
unless the actions have already been done.

Requirements of AD 2003-14-04


    Note 1: Where there are differences between this AD and the 
referenced service bulletins, this AD prevails.

Modification

    (f) For airplanes listed in Table 2 of this AD: Within 90 days 
after July 25, 2003 (the effective date of AD 2003-14-04, amendment 
39-13223), modify the reinforced flight deck door according to 
paragraph (f)(1), (f)(2), or (f)(3) of this AD, as applicable.
