Hot-Rolled Steel Products From the Netherlands
Document Number: E7-14187
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: International Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On August 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') initiated and the U.S. International Trade Commission (``Commission'') instituted a five-year review concerning the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel products (``hot-rolled steel'') from the Netherlands. 71 FR 43443 and 71 FR 43521. However, on May 4, 2007, Commerce published notice in the Federal Register of the implementation of the findings of the World Trade Organization Panel under section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and the revocation of the antidumping duty order concerning hot-rolled steel from the Netherlands effective April 23, 2007. 72 FR 25261. On June 27, 2007, Commerce published notice in the Federal Register of its final results of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel from the Netherlands. 72 FR 35220. In that notice, Commerce determined that a finding of likelihood in a sunset review ``presumes the existence of an antidumping duty order currently in force, which is manifestly not the case here. Consequently, in the absence of an order currently in force, the Department cannot make a finding that it is likely that dumping will continue or recur if the order is revoked.'' 72 FR 35221. Commerce further stated that it was revoking the antidumping duty order on hot- rolled steel from the Netherlands effective November 29, 2006, the fifth anniversary of the date of publication of the order. Accordingly, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)), the five-year review of the antidumping duty order concerning hot-rolled steel from the Netherlands (investigation No. 731-TA-903 (Review)) is terminated.

Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model ERJ 170 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-14145
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain EMBRAER Model ERJ 170 airplanes. The proposed AD would have required installing updated software revisions and, as applicable, doing concurrent actions. Since the proposed AD was issued, we have received a report that all affected airplanes have already been modified as described in the proposed AD. Accordingly, the proposed AD is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model ATP Airplanes
Document Number: E7-14134
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model ATP airplanes. The existing AD currently requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to incorporate life limits for certain items and inspections to detect fatigue cracking in certain structures; to incorporate new inspections to detect fatigue cracking of certain significant structural items (SSIs); and to revise life limits for certain equipment and various components. This new AD requires revising the ALS of the ICA to include revised requirements. This AD results from the determination that additional and revised inspections of the fuselage are needed. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of certain structural elements, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane and consequent rapid decompression of the airplane.
Mississippi Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation Plan
Document Number: E7-14117
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement Office
We, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), are announcing receipt of a proposed Mississippi abandoned mine land reclamation plan (Mississippi plan) under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA or the Act). The purpose of the Mississippi plan is to establish policies and procedures to be followed in conducting reclamation of abandoned coal mine lands in Mississippi. Mississippi will use Federal monies to carry out the reclamation activities. We are seeking public comments on the adequacy of the proposed Mississippi plan. This document gives the times and locations that the proposed plan is available for your inspection, the comment period during which you may submit written comments on the plan, and the procedures that will be followed for the public hearing, if one is requested.
Regulatory Guidance for Recording of Commercial Motor Vehicle Accidents Involving Fires
Document Number: E7-14092
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The FMCSA announces regulatory guidance concerning its definition of ``accident.'' The regulatory guidance is presented in a question-and-answer form. The guidance is generally applicable to drivers, commercial motor vehicles, and motor carrier operations subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. All prior interpretations and regulatory guidance concerning the term ``accident'' issued previously in the Federal Register, as well as memoranda and letters, may no longer be relied upon as authoritative if they are inconsistent with the guidance published today. This guidance will provide the motor carrier industry and Federal, State, and local law enforcement officials with uniform information for use in determining whether certain vehicle fires must be recorded on the motor carrier's accident register and considered in applying the Agency's safety fitness procedures.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-14044
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 airplanes. This AD requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate new limitations for fuel tank systems. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10 and DC-10-10F Airplanes, Model DC-10-15 Airplanes, Model DC-10-30 and DC-10-30F (KC-10A and KDC-10) Airplanes, Model DC-10-40 and DC-10-40F Airplanes, Model MD-10-10F and MD-10-30F Airplanes, and Model MD-11 and MD-11F Airplanes
Document Number: E7-14043
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all transport category airplanes identified above. This AD requires an inspection to determine if a certain fuel pump housing electrical connector is installed. This AD also requires a revision to the FAA- approved airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of the appropriate procedures for disabling certain fuel pump electrical circuits following failure of a fuel pump housing electrical connector if applicable. This AD also requires the deactivation of certain fuel tanks or fuel pumps and the installation of placards if applicable. This AD allows the optional replacement of the fuel pump housing electrical connectors with new, improved parts, which would terminate the AFM revisions, deactivation of certain fuel tanks and fuel pumps, and placard installation. This AD results from a report of two failures of the fuel pump housing electrical connector. We are issuing this AD to prevent continued arcing following a short circuit of the fuel pump housing electrical connector, which could damage the conduit that protects the power lead inside the fuel tank; this condition could create an ignition source inside the fuel tank, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13983
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Bombardier Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. This AD requires revising the Certification Maintenance Requirements and the Maintenance Review Board Report sections of the Canadair Regional Jet Maintenance Requirements Manual to include changes and additions to checks of the aileron power control units (PCUs) and a change to the interval of the backlash check of the aileron control system. This AD results from a report that data collected from in- service airplanes show that approximately 19 percent of aileron backlash checks conducted at 4,000-flight-hour intervals reveal that aileron backlash wear limits are being exceeded. We are issuing this AD to prevent exceeded backlashes in both aileron PCUs, which, if accompanied by the failure of the flutter damper, could result in aileron vibration/flutter and reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Stemme GmbH & Co. KG Model S10-V and S10-VT Powered Sailplanes
Document Number: E7-13981
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-800 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13979
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Boeing Model 737-800 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires inspecting flight spoilers to determine spoiler position after every landing and after any rejected takeoff maneuver. For airplanes on which any flight spoiler is found in the up position with the speedbrake handle in the down position, the existing AD requires replacing the flight spoiler actuator with a flight spoiler actuator having a certain part number. The existing AD also requires an operational test of the speedbrake control system after any maintenance actions that operate the spoiler system, and replacement of the flight spoiler actuator if necessary. The existing AD also provides for optional terminating action for those requirements. This new AD requires the previously optional terminating action. This AD results from a report of seven flight spoiler actuator jams on Model 737-800 airplanes equipped for short field performance (SFP). The cause of the failure has been identified as interference within the actuator main control valve. We are issuing this AD to prevent operation with defective flight spoiler actuators, which could result in a flight spoiler actuator hardover, and could cause the flight spoiler surface to jam in the fully extended position. Two or more hardover failures of the flight spoiler surfaces in the up direction on the same wing, if undetected prior to takeoff, can cause significant roll and consequent loss of control of the airplane.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Occupant Crash Protection
Document Number: E7-13565
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-24
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule establishes specific test procedures for installing child restraints to a child restraint anchorage system, commonly referred to as a ``LATCH'' system, in a front passenger seating position in vehicles certified to meet advanced air bag requirements through the use of a suppression system or a low risk deployment (LRD) system.\1\ The test procedures ensure that the child restraints are installed in a repeatable and reproducible manner.
