Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A310-203, -204, and -222 Airplanes, and Model A310-300 Series Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A310-203, -204, and -222 airplanes, and Model A310-300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require a one-time rototest inspection for cracking of the frame foot and adjacent frames and skin in the area surrounding the frame foot run-outs from fuselage frames (FR) 43 through FR 46, and repair if necessary. The proposed AD also requires modification of certain fastener holes. This proposed AD results from a structural evaluation of Model A310 airplanes for widespread fatigue damage of the frame foot run-outs from FR 43 through FR 46. The evaluation revealed that, on in-service airplanes, undetected cracking in this area can lead to the rupture of the frame foot and subsequent cracking of the adjacent frames and fuselage skin. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the frame foot run-outs, which could lead to rupture of the frame foot and cracking in adjacent frames and skin, and result in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage.

Measures will include the following variables: the information needs and learning styles and preferences of physicians and other medical professionals; their knowledge/awareness of NIDA and the NIDA resources developed for physicians and other medical professionals; their attitudes toward NIDA and the NIDA resources developed for them; their use of the resources developed by NIDA; and ways to strengthen NIDA's knowledge dissemination activities. Frequency of Response: This project will be conducted annually or biennially. Affected Public: Individuals, organizations, and businesses. Type of Respondents: physicians, physician assistants, nurses, medical office managers, hospital/clinic based health educators, and hospital/clinic based social workers.

Price-Anderson Act Financial Protection Regulations and Elimination of Antitrust Reviews
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to conform with the requirements of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The revised regulations include Congress's prescribed increase in the amount of the required annual financial contributions required from commercial reactors in the event of a nuclear accident to pay for third party liability under the Price-Anderson Act. Another revision provides Congress's accommodation for modular reactors, which permits a defined combination of these reactors to be considered a single reactor for the determination of financial obligations under the Price-Anderson Act. Additional revisions, essentially deletions, result from Congress's terminating NRC's authority and responsibility to conduct antitrust reviews of future applications to construct or operate a nuclear reactor.
