Certification of an In-seat Video System, 49361-49362 [05-16739]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 162 / Tuesday, August 23, 2005 / Notices proposes to take, to reduce existing noncompatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The director of the Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field submitted to the FAA on September 9, 2004, NEM’s, descriptions and other documentation that were produced during the Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field FAR Part 150 Study dated July 2004. It was requested that the FAA review this material as the NEM’s, as described in section 47503 of the Act, and that the noise mitigation measures, to be implemented jointly by the airport and surrounding communities, be approved as a noise compatibility program under section 47504 of the Act. The FAA has completed its review of the NEM’s and related descriptions submitted by the director of the Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field. The specific documentation determined to constitute the NEM’s includes the following from the Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field FAR Part 150 Study of July 2004: • Figure 5–1, Existing Noise Exposure Map, 2004 • Figure 5–2, Future Noise Exposure Map, 2009 • Tables(s) 2.17 and 2.18, Summary of Annual Activity for 2003 and 2008 • Table 5.1 at page 5.2, Existing and Future Noise Exposure Map with Existing and Future Land Use, presents estimates of the number of persons residing within the day/night noise level 60 through 75 noise contours • Figures 3–1 and 3–2 present Flight Tracks • Pages 9–1 through 9–3 present the Record of Consultation during the study • Appendix F presents Revised Consultation The FAA has determined that these maps for the Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on August 12, 2005. The FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s NEM’s is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the applicant’s data, information or plans, or constitute a commitment to approve a noise compatibility program or funds the implementation of that program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a NEM’s submitted under section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:03 Aug 22, 2005 Jkt 205001 regard to the depicted noise contours, or interpreting the NEM’s to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of section 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land-use-control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under part 150 or through the FAA’s review of NEM’s. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator who submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under section 150.21 of FAR part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. The FAA has formally received the noise compatibility program for Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field, also effective on August 12, 2005. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to the requirements for the submittal of noise compatibility programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be completed on or before February 13, 2006. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions of 14 CFR part 150, section 150.33. The primary considerations in the evaluation process are whether the proposed measures may reduce the level of aviation safety, create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing non-compatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. The FAA will consider all comments, other than those properly addressed to local land use authorities, to the extent practicable. Copies of the noise exposure maps, the FAA’s evaluation of the maps, and the proposed noise compatibility program are available for examination at the following locations: Federal Aviation Administration, Airports Division, 1601 Lind Avenue, SW., Suite 315, Renton, Washington.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 8, 2005, NHTSA published a final rule establishing Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (70 FR 18136). This final rule requires new PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 passenger cars, multi-purpose passenger vehicles, trucks, and buses with a gross vehicle weight rating of 4,536 kg (10,000 pounds) or less, except those with dual wheels on an axle, to be equipped with a TPMS to alert the driver when one or more of the vehicle’s tires, up to a total of all four tires, is significantly underinflated. Specifically, the TPMS must be capable of detecting when the pressure in one or more of the vehicle’s tires is 25 percent or more below the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended cold inflation pressure or a minimum activation pressure specified in the standard, whichever is higher. As reflected in the final rule, FMVSS No. 138 is a performance standard. Petitions for reconsideration of the final rule have been received and may be viewed on DOT Web site http://dms.dot.gov, (reference docket number NHTSA– 2005–20586). The scope of this workshop is strictly limited to issues surrounding implementation of OVSC Laboratory Test Procedure TP–138, including subsequent amendments, if any, resulting from the agency’s response to petitions for reconsideration. TP–138 is posted on the NHTSA Web site at http:// www.nhtsa.dot.gov (under ‘‘Test Procedures’’ on the Vehicles and Equipment page). To enable interested parties and NHTSA personnel to discuss the questions concerning TP–138, NHTSA believes that it would be desirable to hold a technical workshop and demonstration on the test procedure. As noted above, persons wishing to participate in the workshop are requested to notify Lori Hamn by facsimile, mail or electronic mail no later than August 31, 2005. Prospective attendees should indicate their name, title, and organizational affiliation. Once the agency compiles a list of all prospective attendees, NHTSA will determine whether the number of participants per organization must be limited due to space constraints. In order to facilitate discussions, the agency requests that interested parties submit written suggestions regarding topics pertaining to TP–138 for inclusion in the agenda for this workshop. Copies of all written submissions and the final agenda will be placed in the docket for this notice. The agency will include as many of the suggested topics in the final agenda as appropriate. The following is a preliminary agenda for the workshop.
