ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier Model DHC–8–102, –103, –106, –201, –202, –301, –311, –314, and –315 airplanes. This AD requires certain Bombardier Model DHC–8–102, –103, –106, –201, –202, –301, –311, –314, and –315 airplanes. This AD results from a report that, during structural testing of the cockpit door, the lower hinge block rotated and caused the mating hinge pin to disengage, and caused excessive door deflection. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of a door attachment, which could result in uncontrolled release of the cockpit door under certain fuselage decompression conditions, and possible damage to the airplane structure. DATES: This AD becomes effective July 18, 2006. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of July 18, 2006.

The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647–5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to certain Bombardier Model DHC–8–102, –103, –106, –201, –202, –301, –311, –314, and –315 airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on April 11, 2006 (71 FR 18244). That NPRM proposed to require modifying the hinge attachment for the cockpit door from a single-point attachment to a two-point attachment. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. We have considered the one comment received. The commenter, the Air Line Pilots Association, supports the NPRM. Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed. Costs of Compliance This AD will affect about 16 airplanes of U.S. registry. The required actions will take between 3 and 6 work hours per airplane, depending on the airplane configuration. The average labor rate is $80 per work hour. Required parts will cost about $2,000 per airplane. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of this AD for U.S. operators is between $35,840 and $39,680, or between $2,240 and $2,480 per airplane. 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 E:\FR\FM\13JNR1.SGM 13JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 113 / Tuesday, June 13, 2006 / Rules and Regulations 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 and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation.

The procedures of part 756 apply to actions other than the issuance, amendment, revocation or appeal of a regulation, and most enforcement actions taken under part 764 or 766 of the EAR. Part 756 authorizes the Under Secretary for Industry and Security to designate an ‘‘appeals coordinator to assist in the review and processing of an appeal * * *.’’ Prior to publication of this rule, part 756 authorized the Under Secretary for Industry and Security to designate ‘‘any BIS official’’ as appeals coordinator. This rule authorizes the Under Secretary for Industry and Security to designate any employee of the Department of Commerce to be the appeals coordinator. The Under Secretary for Industry and Security must have the concurrence of the head of the operating unit in which the employee is employed to make such a designation of a Department of Commerce employee who is not an employee of BIS. The agency is making this change, which is administrative in nature, in order to provide the Under Secretary and the Department of Commerce with additional flexibility in allocating limited legal and official staff resources to the review and processing of appeals under part 756. The authority to decide appeals will remain with the Under Secretary, in accordance with section 756.2(c)(1) of the EAR, subject to the Under Secretary’s authority to delegate that function to the Deputy Under Secretary or another BIS official in accordance with section 756.2(a). Moreover, this change will not affect the Under Secretary’s authority to consider recommendations or other relevant information (from either the appeals coordinator or any other source) in deciding appeals, in accordance with section 756.2(c)(1). Nor will this change affect the substance of the agency’s ongoing decision-making activities. Rulemaking Requirements 1.

-201, -202, -301, -311, -314, and -315 Airplanes; Equipped With Certain 
Cockpit Door Installations

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
certain Bombardier Model DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, 
-314, and -315 airplanes. This AD requires certain Bombardier Model 
DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, -314, and -315 
airplanes. This AD results from a report that, during structural 
testing of the cockpit door, the lower hinge block rotated and caused 
the mating hinge pin to disengage, and caused excessive door 
deflection. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of a door 
attachment, which could result in uncontrolled release of the cockpit 
door under certain fuselage decompression conditions, and possible 
damage to the airplane structure.

DATES: This AD becomes effective July 18, 2006.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of July 18, 2006.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Examining the Docket

    You may examine the airworthiness directive (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 street address stated in the ADDRESSES section.

Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to certain Bombardier 
Model DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, -314, and -315 
airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on April 11, 
2006 (71 FR 18244). That NPRM proposed to require modifying the hinge 
attachment for the cockpit door from a single-point attachment to a 
two-point attachment.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. We have considered the one comment received. 
The commenter, the Air Line Pilots Association, supports the NPRM.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the 
comment received, and determined that air safety and the public 
interest require adopting the AD as proposed.

Costs of Compliance

    This AD will affect about 16 airplanes of U.S. registry. The 
required actions will take between 3 and 6 work hours per airplane, 
depending on the airplane configuration. The average labor rate is $80 
per work hour. Required parts will cost about $2,000 per airplane. 
Based on these figures, the estimated cost of this AD for U.S. 
operators is between $35,840 and $39,680, or between $2,240 and $2,480 
per airplane.

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

[[Page 34007]]

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 and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES 
section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation.
