Special Conditions: Boeing Model 787-8 Airplane; Crashworthiness
Document Number: E7-18942
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA issues these special conditions for the Boeing Model 787-8 airplane. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. These novel or unusual design features are associated with carbon fiber reinforced plastic used in the construction of the fuselage. For these design features, the applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for impact response characteristics to ensure survivable crashworthiness. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing standards. We will issue additional special conditions for other novel or unusual design features of the Boeing Model 787-8 airplanes.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A300-600 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-18870
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated 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:
Methamidophos, Oxydemeton-methyl, Profenofos, and Trichlorfon; Tolerance Actions
Document Number: E7-18869
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is revoking certain tolerances for the insecticide oxydemeton-methyl. Also, EPA is modifying certain tolerances for the insecticides oxydemeton-methyl, profenofos, and trichlorfon. In addition, EPA is establishing new tolerances for the insecticides oxydemeton-methyl and profenofos. EPA is not taking action on tolerances for methamidophos at this time. The regulatory actions finalized in this document are follow-up to the Agency's reregistration program under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), and tolerance reassessment program under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) section 408(q).

Airworthiness Directives; Viking Air Limited Model DHC-7 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-18863
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Viking Air Limited Model DHC-7 airplanes. This AD requires an inspection of certain SM-200 servo drive units (power servo motor and housing assemblies) for certain markings, related investigative action if necessary, and modification if necessary. This AD results from a report that some SM-200 servo drive units that were not in configuration MOD H are installed on Model DHC-7 airplanes. MOD H prevents the internal clutch fasteners from backing out. We are issuing this AD to prevent the possibility of internal clutch fasteners from backing out, which could cause an inadvertent servo engagement and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Dichlorvos (DDVP); Proposed Determination to Terminate Special Review
Document Number: E7-18861
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-09-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This notice sets forth EPA's Proposed Determination to Terminate Special Review for the pesticide Dichlorvos (DDVP). On February 24, 1988, the Agency published a Notice of Special Review (PD 1) of pesticide products containing DDVP based on concerns for cancer, cholinesterase inhibition, and liver effects. (53 FR 5542). On September 28, 1995, the Agency published a Notice of Preliminary Determination to Cancel Certain Registrations and a Draft Notice of Intent to Cancel (PD 2/3). (60 FR 50337). In the 1995 PD 2/3, the Agency determined that exposure to dichlorvos from the registered uses posed carcinogenic risks of concern as well as risks of concern for cholinesterase inhibition. However, with respect to liver effects, the Agency determined that this endpoint was no longer of regulatory concern. Since the initiation of Special Review and publication of the PD 2/3, additional data have become available. Based in part on these data, the Agency has changed its assessment of some of the risks associated with DDVP, and modified the terms and conditions of DDVP registrations, accordingly. Moreover, during the recently-concluded reregistration process for DDVP, EPA conducted an intensive and public review of whether DDVP registrations meet the FIFRA standard for registration, culminating in the Agency's 2006 Interim Reregistration Eligibility Decision (IRED) for DDVP. Through the reregistration processes the Agency resolved remaining concerns regarding cancer and cholinesterase effects. Accordingly, EPA has revised its assessment of DDVP since the time when the PD 1 and the PD 2/3 were published. Based on the IRED, requested label amendments, and the voluntary cancellation of uses by the registrant pursuant to section 6(f) of FIFRA, EPA has determined that the risks that were the basis of the Special Review are no longer of concern and, therefore, the Agency is proposing to terminate the Special Review of DDVP. To the extent that the Agency further revises its assessment of DDVP, it will do so outside of the Special Review context.
N-methyl Carbamate Revised Cumulative Risk Assessment; Notice of Availability
Document Number: E7-18860
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-09-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This notice announces the availability of EPA's revised cumulative risk assessment for the N-methyl carbamate group of pesticides, and opens a public comment period on this document and other support documents. As required by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA), a cumulative risk assessment, which evaluates exposures based on a common mechanism of toxicity, was conducted to evaluate the risk from food, drinking water, residential, and other non-occupational exposures resulting from registered uses of N-methyl carbamate pesticides. The N-methyl carbamate group includes aldicarb, carbaryl, carbofuran, formetanate HCl, methiocarb, methomyl, oxamyl, pirimicarb, propoxur, and thiodicarb.
