Airworthiness Directives; Eclipse Aviation Corporation Model EA500 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-23024
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Eclipse Aviation Corporation Model (Eclipse) EA500 airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect the fuel filler adapters for primer and/or paint in the surround and, if present, remove the primer and/or paint. This AD results from an observation during a factory walk-around that the fuel filler surround was primed instead of being bare metal. We are issuing this AD to inspect and, if necessary, remove any paint and/or primer to restore the fuel filler adapter lightning strike protection. A lightning strike on the filler cap with insulating primer on the surround could result in the strike not dissipating to the surround. This could lead to arcing and ignition of fuel vapor inside the fuel tank.

Airworthiness Directives; Alpha Aviation Design Limited Model R2160 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-23017
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above that would supersede an existing AD. This proposed 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 distortion of the rudder bars due to rudder control forces during aerobatic operation and nose wheel steering reaction forces. Rudder bar distortion could result in reduced control or loss of control. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.

Risk Management Exemption From Federal Speculative Position Limits
Document Number: E7-22992
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-27
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Section 150.2 of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's (``Commission'') regulations imposes limits on the size of speculative positions that traders may hold or control in futures and futures equivalent option contracts on certain designated agricultural commodities named therein. Section 150.3 lists certain types of positions that may be exempted from these Federal speculative position limits. The Commission is proposing to provide an additional exemption for ``risk management positions.'' A risk management position would be defined as a futures or futures equivalent position, held as part of a broadly diversified portfolio of long-only or short-only futures or futures equivalent positions, that is based upon either: A fiduciary obligation to match or track the results of a broadly diversified index that includes the same commodity markets in fundamentally the same proportions as the futures or futures equivalent position; or a portfolio diversification plan that has, among other substantial asset classes, an exposure to a broadly diversified index that includes the same commodity markets in fundamentally the same proportions as the futures or futures equivalent position. The exemption would be subject to conditions, including that the positions must be passively managed, must be unleveraged, and may not be carried into the spot month.
Food Labeling: Nutrient Content Claims; Alpha-Linolenic Acid, Eicosapentaenoic Acid, and Docosahexaenoic Acid Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Document Number: E7-22991
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-27
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposes to issue this rule finding that certain nutrient content claims for foods, including conventional foods and dietary supplements, that contain omega-3 fatty acids, do not meet the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) and may not appear in food labeling. This rule is being proposed in response to three notifications submitted to FDA under the act. One notification concerning nutrient content claims for alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) was submitted collectively by Alaska General Seafoods, Ocean Beauty Seafoods, Inc., and Trans-Ocean Products, Inc. (the seafood processors notification); a second notification concerning nutrient content claims for ALA, DHA, and EPA was submitted by Martek Biosciences Corp. (the Martek notification); and a third notification concerning nutrient content claims for DHA and EPA was submitted by Ocean Nutrition Canada, Ltd. (the Ocean Nutrition notification). FDA has reviewed the information included in the three notifications and is proposing to prohibit the nutrient content claims for DHA and EPA set forth in the three notifications because they are not based on an authoritative statement that identifies a nutrient level to which the claims refer, as required by the controlling statutory authority. FDA is also proposing to prohibit the nutrient content claims for ALA set forth in the seafood processors notification because they are based on a daily value that was determined by a different method than daily values already established for other nutrients. Because of the different methodology used to set the daily value, the ALA claims set forth in the seafood processors notification do not enable the public to comprehend the information provided in the claims and to understand the relative significance of such information in the context of the daily diet, as required by the controlling statutory authority. FDA is proposing to take no regulatory action with respect to the nutrient content claims for ALA set forth in the Martek notification. Therefore, if this proposed rule is finalized without change, these claims will be allowed to remain on the market.
