ACTION: Final Rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: In-service reports have been received by BAE of failed bolts fitted to frame 199 wing spigot post assembly. If left uncorrected failure of these bolts will severely compromise the structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would lead to loss of the aircraft. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD becomes effective August 22, 2007. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 On August 22, 2007, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD. You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// dms.dot.gov or in person at Document Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M–30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Taylor Martin, Aerospace Engineer, FAA, Small Airplane Directorate, 901 Locust, Room 301, Kansas City, Missouri 64106; telephone: (816) 329– 4138; facsimile: (816) 329–4090. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on May 18, 2007 (72 FR 28005). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: In-service reports have been received by BAE of failed bolts fitted to frame 199 wing spigot post assembly. If left uncorrected failure of these bolts will severely compromise the structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would lead to loss of the aircraft. To address these concerns, BAE issued SB 57–JA020740 original issue in February 2003 mandated by CAA AD 006–02–2003. Recently received additional information has caused BAE to raise the Service Bulletin to revision 2. Revision 2 of the SB introduces various changes. One is substantive, it relates to the need to check for correct washer installation. Incorrect installation could lead to fretting and fatigue crack initiation in the fitting followed by failure or bending loads in the bolt leading to failure of the affected bolts. If left uncorrected failure of these bolts or a wing fitting will severely compromise the structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would lead to loss of the aircraft. This substantive change to the service bulletin necessitates the raising of this superseding AD. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed. E:\FR\FM\18JYR1.SGM 18JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 18, 2007 / Rules and Regulations Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might also have required different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC71 with RULES Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 195 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 50 workhours per product to comply with basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $80 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $100 per product. Where the service information lists required parts costs that are covered under warranty, we have assumed that there will be no charge for these parts. As we do not control warranty coverage for affected parties, some parties may incur costs higher than estimated here. We estimate the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $799,500, or $4,100 per product. In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions will take about 25 work-hours and require parts costing $100, for a cost of $2,100 per product. We have no way of determining the number of products that may need these actions. 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 10:08 Jul 18, 2007 Jkt 211001 Regulatory Findings We 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 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. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://dms.dot.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Office (telephone (800) 647– 5527) is in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: I 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] 2007–15–01 British Aerospace Regional Aircraft: Amendment 39–15130; Docket No. FAA–2007–27861; Directorate Identifier 2007–CE–035–AD. Effective Date (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective August 22, 2007. Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Jetstream HP.137 Jetstream Mk.1, Jetstream Series 200, Jetstream Series 3101, and Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category. Subject (d) Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 57: Wings. Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: In-service reports have been received by BAE of failed bolts fitted to frame 199 wing spigot post assembly. If left uncorrected failure of these bolts will severely compromise the structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would lead to loss of the aircraft. To address these concerns, BAE issued SB 57–JA020740 original issue in February 2003 mandated by CAA AD 006–02–2003. Recently received additional information has caused BAE to raise the Service Bulletin to revision 2. Revision 2 of the SB introduces various changes. One is substantive, it relates to the need to check for correct washer installation. Incorrect installation could lead to fretting and fatigue crack initiation in the fitting followed by failure or bending loads in the bolt leading to failure of the affected bolts. If left uncorrected failure of these bolts or a wing fitting will severely compromise the structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would lead to loss of the aircraft. This substantive change to the service bulletin necessitates the raising of this superseding AD. Actions and Compliance (f) Unless already done, do the following actions using British Aerospace Jetstream Series 3100 and 3200 Service Bulletin 57– JA020740, Revision 2, dated November 2, 2005. (1) Inspect and torque check the bolts at frame 199 at the following compliance times: (i) Initially within the next 90 days after August 22, 2007 (the effective date of this AD) or within the next 100 hours time-inservice (TIS) after August 22, 2007 (the effective date of this AD), whichever occurs first; and (ii) Repetitively thereafter at intervals not to exceed 4,000 hours TIS. (2) If any discrepancies are found in any of the inspections required in paragraph (f)(1) of this AD, before further flight, correct any discrepancies. FAA AD Differences 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new AD: I PO 00000 39311 Sfmt 4700 Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/ or service information as follows: We added repetitive inspection requirements in this AD to coincide with the service bulletin.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 343(a) of the Trade Act of 2002 and implementing regulations, truck carriers and other eligible parties are required to transmit advance electronic truck cargo information to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) through a CBPapproved electronic data interchange. In a previous document, CBP designated the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Truck Manifest System as the approved interchange and announced that the requirement that advance electronic cargo information be transmitted through ACE would be phased in by groups of ports of entry. This document announces that at all land border ports in Maine and Minnesota truck carriers will be required to file electronic manifests through the ACE Truck Manifest System. DATES: Trucks entering the United States through land border ports of entry in the states of Maine and Minnesota will be required to transmit the advance information through the ACE Truck Manifest system effective October 16, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. James Swanson, via e-mail at james.d.swanson@dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 343(a) of the Trade Act of 2002, as amended (the Act; 19 U.S.C. 2071 note), required that CBP promulgate regulations providing for the mandatory transmission of electronic cargo information by way of a CBPapproved electronic data interchange (EDI) system before the cargo is brought into or departs the United States by any mode of commercial transportation (sea, air, rail or truck). The cargo information required is that which is reasonably necessary to enable high-risk shipments to be identified for purposes of ensuring PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 cargo safety and security and preventing smuggling pursuant to the laws enforced and administered by CBP. On December 5, 2003, CBP published in the Federal Register (68 FR 68140) a final rule to effectuate the provisions of the Act. In particular, a new section 123.92 (19 CFR 123.92) was added to the regulations to implement the inbound truck cargo provisions. Section 123.92 describes the general requirement that, in the case of any inbound truck required to report its arrival under section 123.1(b), if the truck will have commercial cargo aboard, CBP must electronically receive certain information regarding that cargo through a CBP-approved EDI system no later than 1 hour prior to the carrier’s reaching the first port of arrival in the United States. For truck carriers arriving with shipments qualified for clearance under the FAST (Free and Secure Trade) program, section 123.92 provides that CBP must electronically receive such cargo information through the CBPapproved EDI system no later than 30 minutes prior to the carrier’s reaching the first port of arrival in the United States. ACE Truck Manifest Test On September 13, 2004, CBP published a notice in the Federal Register (69 FR 55167) announcing a test allowing participating Truck Carrier Accounts to transmit electronic manifest data for inbound cargo through ACE, with any such transmissions automatically complying with advance cargo information requirements as provided in section 343(a) of the Trade Act of 2002. Truck Carrier Accounts participating in the test were given the ability to electronically transmit the truck manifest data and obtain release of their cargo, crew, conveyances, and equipment via the ACE Portal or electronic data interchange messaging. A series of notices announced additional deployments of the test, with deployment sites being phased in as clusters. Clusters were announced in the following notices published in the Federal Register: 70 FR 30964 (May 31, 2005); 70 FR 43892 (July 29, 2005); 70 FR 60096 (October 14, 2005); 71 FR (January 24, 2006); 71 FR 23941 (April 25, 2006); 71 FR 42103 (July 25, 2006), 71 FR 77404 (December 26, 2006); 72 FR 7058 (February 14, 2007); 72 FR 14127 (March 26, 2007); and 72 FR 32135 (June 11, 2007). CBP has now tested ACE at all of the planned ports, with the exception of Alaska. CBP expects to announce the test of the ACE truck manifest system at the land border ports in Alaska in a future notice in the Federal Register. E:\FR\FM\18JYR1.SGM 18JYR1

3101, and Jetstream Model 3201 Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final Rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the 
products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing 
airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of 
another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an 
aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

    In-service reports have been received by BAE of failed bolts 
fitted to frame 199 wing spigot post assembly. If left uncorrected 
failure of these bolts will severely compromise the structural 
integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would 
lead to loss of the aircraft.

    We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe 
condition on these products.

DATES: This AD becomes effective August 22, 2007.
    On August 22, 2007, the Director of the Federal Register approved 
the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this 
AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. 
That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on May 18, 2007 (72 FR 
28005). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the 
specified products. The MCAI states:

    In-service reports have been received by BAE of failed bolts 
fitted to frame 199 wing spigot post assembly. If left uncorrected 
failure of these bolts will severely compromise the structural 
integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would 
lead to loss of the aircraft. To address these concerns, BAE issued 
SB 57-JA020740 original issue in February 2003 mandated by CAA AD 
006-02-2003. Recently received additional information has caused BAE 
to raise the Service Bulletin to revision 2. Revision 2 of the SB 
introduces various changes. One is substantive, it relates to the 
need to check for correct washer installation. Incorrect 
installation could lead to fretting and fatigue crack initiation in 
the fitting followed by failure or bending loads in the bolt leading 
to failure of the affected bolts. If left uncorrected failure of 
these bolts or a wing fitting will severely compromise the 
structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of 
which would lead to loss of the aircraft. This substantive change to 
the service bulletin necessitates the raising of this superseding 
AD.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of 
the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed.

[[Page 39311]]

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in 
general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it 
necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the 
AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these 
changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information 
provided in the MCAI and related service information.
    We might also have required different actions in this AD from those 
in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are 
highlighted in a NOTE within the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 195 products of U.S. registry. 
We also estimate that it will take about 50 work-hours per product to 
comply with basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is 
$80 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $100 per product. 
Where the service information lists required parts costs that are 
covered under warranty, we have assumed that there will be no charge 
for these parts. As we do not control warranty coverage for affected 
parties, some parties may incur costs higher than estimated here. We 
estimate the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $799,500, or 
$4,100 per product.
    In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions will 
take about 25 work-hours and require parts costing $100, for a cost of 
$2,100 per product. We have no way of determining the number of 
products that may need these actions.

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 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 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.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://
dms.dot.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 
a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD

Adoption of the Amendment

0
Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, 
the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
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 AD:

2007-15-01 British Aerospace Regional Aircraft: Amendment 39-15130; 
Docket No. FAA-2007-27861; Directorate Identifier 2007-CE-035-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective August 
22, 2007.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to Jetstream HP.137 Jetstream Mk.1, 
Jetstream Series 200, Jetstream Series 3101, and Jetstream Model 
3201 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category.

Subject

    (d) Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 57: Wings.

Reason

    (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) 
states:

    In-service reports have been received by BAE of failed bolts 
fitted to frame 199 wing spigot post assembly. If left uncorrected 
failure of these bolts will severely compromise the structural 
integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of which would 
lead to loss of the aircraft. To address these concerns, BAE issued 
SB 57-JA020740 original issue in February 2003 mandated by CAA AD 
006-02-2003. Recently received additional information has caused BAE 
to raise the Service Bulletin to revision 2. Revision 2 of the SB 
introduces various changes. One is substantive, it relates to the 
need to check for correct washer installation. Incorrect 
installation could lead to fretting and fatigue crack initiation in 
the fitting followed by failure or bending loads in the bolt leading 
to failure of the affected bolts. If left uncorrected failure of 
these bolts or a wing fitting will severely compromise the 
structural integrity of the wing to fuselage attachment. Failure of 
which would lead to loss of the aircraft. This substantive change to 
the service bulletin necessitates the raising of this superseding 
AD.

Actions and Compliance

    (f) Unless already done, do the following actions using British 
Aerospace Jetstream Series 3100 and 3200 Service Bulletin 57-
JA020740, Revision 2, dated November 2, 2005.
    (1) Inspect and torque check the bolts at frame 199 at the 
following compliance times:
    (i) Initially within the next 90 days after August 22, 2007 (the 
effective date of this AD) or within the next 100 hours time-in-
service (TIS) after August 22, 2007 (the effective date of this AD), 
whichever occurs first; and
    (ii) Repetitively thereafter at intervals not to exceed 4,000 
hours TIS.
    (2) If any discrepancies are found in any of the inspections 
required in paragraph (f)(1) of this AD, before further flight, 
correct any discrepancies.

FAA AD Differences

    Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information 
as follows: We added repetitive inspection requirements in this AD 
to coincide with the service bulletin.
