ESTIMATED COSTS Action Work hour Average labor rate per hour Parts Cost per airplane Number of U.S.-registered airplanes Fleet cost Inspection ................................................. 1 $65 $9 $74 130 $9,620 Authority for This Rulemaking Adoption of the Amendment 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. I Regulatory Findings Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: I Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2.

Effective Date (a) This AD becomes effective August 1, 2005. Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) Affected ADs (b) None. 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. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Boeing Model 777– 200 and -300 series airplanes, certificated in any category; as identified in Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 777–27A0060, dated September 18, 2003.

ACTION: Lifting Stay of Enforcement. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces the Commission’s decision to lift a stay enforcement of special packaging requirements for the drug Lidoderm. The Commission issued the stay in August of 2001. The manufacturer of Lidoderm is now using packaging that complies with special packaging requirements. The action will be effective on June 27, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Geri Smith, Office of Compliance, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207; telephone (301) 504–7529. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1995, the Commission issued a regulation under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (‘‘PPPA’’) requiring child resistant (‘‘CR’’) packaging for lidocaine products with more than 5 milligrams (mg) of lidocaine in a single package. 16 CFR 1700.14 (a)(23). Lidoderm is a single-use dermal patch that contains lidocaine. Lidoderm is prescribed to treat postherpetic neuralgia (‘‘PHN’’), a rare, chronic condition that results from nerve injury caused by shingles. Each Lidoderm patch contains 700 mg lidocaine. Under the PPPA, if a product requires special packaging, the immediate container of the product must be CR. This means that for Lidoderm to comply with the PPPA, each patch must be packaged in an individual CR pouch, or multiple patches that are not packaged in individual CR pouches must be packaged together in a single resealable CR pouch without envelopes. On August 14, 2000, the manufacturer of Lidoderm, Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. (‘‘Endo’’), petitioned the Commission for a partial exemption for DATES: VerDate jul<14>2003 16:46 Jun 24, 2005 Jkt 205001 Lidoderm from special packaging requirements stating that ‘‘it is not practicable to market each Lidoderm patch in a child-resistant envelope.’’ At that time, Lidoderm was marketed in the form of five patches inside a non-CR resealable envelope. One non-CR carton of Lidoderm contained six envelopes (each envelope contained five patches) for a total of 30 patches per carton. Endo asserted that placing each patch in a CR envelope would be cost prohibitive and would force it to discontinue production of Lidoderm. The Commission declined to issue the exemption that Endo requested because, as explained in the August 30, 2001 stay notice, under the PPPA, the expense of special packaging cannot be the basis for an exemption. 66 FR 45842. However, the Commission did agree to stay enforcement of the special packaging requirements for Lidoderm under certain conditions specified in the notice of the stay. Id. Endo has informed the Commission that it is now packaging Lidoderm patches in CR packaging in full compliance with the PPPA requirements (each single-use patch is packaged in an individual CR pouch). Because the stay of enforcement is no longer necessary, the Commission has decided to lift the stay. This means that Lidoderm, like any other item requiring special packaging under the Commission’s PPPA regulations, must comply with all PPPA special packaging requirements. Dated: June 22, 2005.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing safety zones on the waters of the Suislaw, Willamette, Columbia, Coos, and Chehalis Rivers, located in the Area of Responsibility of the Captain of the Port, Portland, Oregon, during fireworks displays. The Captain of the PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Port, Portland, Oregon, is taking this action to safeguard watercraft and their occupants from safety hazards associated with these displays. Entry into these safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port. DATES: This rule is effective from 9:30 p.m. on July 2, 2005 until 11 p.m. on July 23, 2005. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket are part of docket (CGD13–05– 022) and are available for inspection or copying at the U.S. Coast Guard MSO/ Group Portland, 6767 N. Basin Ave, Portland, Oregon 97217 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Petty Officer Charity Keuter, c/o Captain of the Port, Portland 6767 N. Basin Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97217, (503) 240–2590. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM and for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Publishing a NPRM would be contrary to public interest since immediate action is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and spectators gathering in the vicinity of the various fireworks launching barges and displays. If normal notice and comment procedures were followed, this rule would not become effective until after the dates of the events. For this reason, publishing an NPRM and making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register in this case would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. Background and Purpose The Coast Guard is establishing temporary safety zones to allow for safe fireworks displays. All events occur within the Captain of the Port, Portland, OR, Area of Responsibility (AOR). These events may result in a number of vessels congregating near fireworks launching barges and sites. The safety zones are needed to protect watercraft and their occupants from safety hazards associated with fireworks displays. This safety zone will be enforced by representatives of the Captain of the Port, Portland, Oregon. The Captain of the Port may be assisted by other Fderal and local agencies.

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.

1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

2005-13-29 Boeing: Amendment 39-14166. Docket No. FAA-2005-20660; 
Directorate Identifier 2004-NM-242-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This AD becomes effective August 1, 2005.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to Boeing Model 777-200 and -300 series 
airplanes, certificated in any category; as identified in Boeing 
Alert Service Bulletin 777-27A0060, dated September 18, 2003.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD was prompted by a report of missing tie plates for 
wire bundles that are routed from lower section 41 into the center 
control stand in the flight deck. We are issuing this AD to prevent 
wire chafing, which could result in the loss of flight control, 
communication, navigation, and engine fire control systems. Loss of 
these systems could consequently result in a significant reduction 
of safety margins, an increase in flight crew workload, and in the 
case where loss of engine fire control is combined with an engine 
fire, could result in an uncontrollable fire.

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.

Inspection

    (f) Within 18 months after the effective date of this AD, 
inspect for installation of the tie plate for the wire bundles 
routed from lower section 41 into the center control stand in the
