FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety. The Agency has reviewed the comments submitted in response to the previous announcement and concluded that granting these exemptions will provide a level of safety that will be equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.
Risk Assessment of the Public Health Impact from Foodborne Listeria Monocytogenes in Soft-Ripened Cheese: Request for Comments and for Scientific Data and Information

United States Standards for Livestock and Meat Marketing Claims, Naturally Raised Claim for Livestock and the Meat and Meat Products Derived From Such Livestock
Document Number: E7-23103
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is seeking comments on a proposed voluntary standard for a naturally raised marketing claim. A number of livestock producers make claims associated with production practices in order to distinguish their products in the marketplace. There are a growing number of entities that wish to capture value added opportunities via alternative production methods to meet the demands of consumers seeking meat and meat products from naturally raised livestock. The livestock and meat supply chain along with consumers could benefit from a uniform standard for the marketing of this type of product. The standard for a naturally raised marketing claim, if adopted, will be part of the voluntary U.S. Standards for Livestock and Meat Marketing Claims. If this voluntary standard is established, livestock producers participating in this program would have their naturally raised claim verified through the Department of Agriculture (USDA). Verification of any claim would be accomplished through an audit of the production process in accordance with procedures that are contained in Part 62 of Title 7 of the Code of Federal Regulations (7 CFR part 62). Meat and meat products sold from approved programs can carry a claim verified by USDA.

Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80C2B1 Turbofan Engine
Document Number: E7-22922
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for a GE CF6-80C2B1 turbofan engine, serial number (SN) 690203, with fan disk, part number (P/N) 1703M78P11, SN RPMDA662, installed. This AD requires stripping of thermal spray coating, inspection of dovetail slots, and reapplication of thermal spray coating on certain stage 1 fan disks. This AD results from a report that a repair shop did not meet the process requirements when applying copper-nickel-indium (Cu- Ni-In) thermal coating to certain stage 1 fan disks. We are issuing this AD to prevent possible uncontained release of multiple fan blades, resulting in damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 767 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-22854
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all Boeing Model 767 airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitive measurements of the rudder and elevator freeplay, repetitive lubrications of rudder and elevator components, and related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. This new AD instead requires revised repetitive measurements of the rudder freeplay and the elevator freeplay for each of the power control actuators (PCAs) that move the rudder and elevator, corrective and related investigative actions if necessary, and repetitive lubrications of the rudder and elevator components. For some airplanes, this AD also requires related concurrent actions. This AD results from reports of freeplay-induced vibration of the rudder and the elevator. The potential for vibration of the control surface should be avoided because the point of transition from vibration to divergent flutter is unknown. We are issuing this AD to prevent excessive vibration of the airframe during flight, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Societe de Motorisations Aeronautiques (SMA) SR305-230 and SR305-230-1 Reciprocating Engines
Document Number: E7-22812
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) provided by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to identify and correct an unsafe condition on SMA SR305-230 and SR305-230-1 reciprocating engines. The MCAI states the following:
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation AE 3007A and AE 3007C Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-22810
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) AE 3007A and AE 3007C series turbofan engines. That AD currently prohibits any flight following a ground engine start where the engine oil temperature is below 32 [deg]F (0 [deg]C), unless certain preflight operational procedures are followed. This AD also requires those actions and would also require a terminating action. This AD results from design improvements to components in the accessory gearbox air turbine starter mounting pad. We are issuing this AD to prevent an in-flight engine shutdown due to loss of engine oil from the engine accessory gearbox starter pad shaft seal drain and possible loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135ER, -135KE, -135KL, and -135LR Airplanes and Model EMB-145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, -145MP, and -145EP Airplanes
Document Number: E7-22635
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
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:
Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Model 400A Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-22545
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Model 400A series airplanes. This AD requires inspecting the galley cabinets to determine if a certain part number is installed or if a certain size of wire already exists, and doing related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from reports of undersized, and consequently unprotected, wire in the galley cabinets. We are issuing this AD to prevent overheating of wire insulation and consequent fire or smoke in the airplane cabin.
Revisions to the Hospital Mortgage Insurance Program
Document Number: E7-22406
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule revises the regulations governing HUD's mortgage insurance program for hospitals. The rule updates and incorporates some earlier provisions that currently are not published as part of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) regulations. Further, the rule adds new provisions to make them consistent with current industry practices. The rule also codifies the relevant regulations that address hospital mortgage insurance in one part, thereby making the regulations more user-friendly.
Confined Spaces in Construction
Document Number: E7-21893
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-28
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA is proposing a rule to protect employees from the hazards resulting from exposure to confined spaces in the construction industry. Under the proposed rule, employers would first determine whether there is a confined space at a job site. If there is a confined space, the employer would determine if there are existing or potential hazards in the space. If there are such hazards, the employer then would classify the space according to the physical and atmospheric hazards found in it. The four classifications are: Isolated-Hazard Confined Space, Controlled-Atmosphere Confined Space, Permit-Required Confined Space, and Continuous System-Permit-Required Confined Space. The proposed requirements for each type of confined space are tailored to control the different types of hazards.
