SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 16, 2007 (72 FR 45880), the NRC published a direct final rule amending its regulations at 10 CFR 72.214 to revise the TN–68 cask system listing within the ‘‘List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks’’ to include Amendment No. 1 to CoC No. 1027.

Model 205A, 205A–1, 205B, 212, 412, 412CF, and 412EP Helicopters Federal Aviation Administration, DOT. ACTION: Final Rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the specified Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. (Bell) Helicopters. That AD currently requires inspecting each affected tail rotor blade (blade) forward tip weight retention block (tip block) and the aft tip closure (tip closure) for adhesive bond voids, and removing any blade with an excessive void from service. That AD also requires modifying certain blades by installing shear pins and tip closure rivets. This amendment contains the same requirements but expands the applicability to include other part and serial-numbered blades. This AD also clarifies the requirement to re-identify the modified blade by adding ‘‘FM’’ after the part number and also requires PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 dynamically balancing the tail rotor. The existing AD was prompted by five occurrences of missing tip blocks or tip closures resulting in minor to substantial damage. This amendment was prompted by the determination that the AD should apply to other affected part and serial-numbered blades. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent loss of a tip block or tip closure, loss of a blade and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. DATES: Effective November 30, 2007. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of November 30, 2007. ADDRESSES: You may get the service information identified in this AD from Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc., P.O. Box 482, Fort Worth, Texas 76101, telephone (817) 280–3391, fax (817) 280–6466. Examining the Docket: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.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 this AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A proposal to amend 14 CFR part 39 by superseding AD 2002–09–04, Amendment 30–12737 (67 FR 22349, May 3, 2002), for the specified Bell model helicopters was published in the Federal Register on March 13, 2007 (72 FR 11295). The action proposed: retaining requirements to inspect the tip block and the tip closure for adhesive bonding voids and to remove any blade with an excessive void from service; retaining requirements to modify certain blades by installing shear pins and tip closure rivets in the tip area of the affected blades; expanding the applicability to include more blades and clarifying other requirements. Since issuing AD 2002–09–04, Bell issued further revisions to Alert Service Bullet (ASB) Nos. 205–00–80, 205B–00– E:\FR\FM\26OCR1.SGM 26OCR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 16, 2007 (72 FR 45880), the NRC

This amendment modifies the CoC by revising several fuel parameters 
that include increasing fuel burnup to 60 gigawatts-day/metric ton of 
uranium, increasing total cask decay heat to 30 kilowatts, increasing 
maximum average fuel enrichment to 4.7 weight percent uranium-235, and 
decreasing minimum fuel assembly cooling time to 7 years. Amendment No. 
1 will also add up to eight damaged fuel assemblies as authorized 
contents of the cask and reduce the cask spacing on the storage pad. In 
the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse 
comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on 
October 30, 2007. The NRC did not receive any comments on the direct 
final rule. Therefore, this rule will become effective as scheduled.
