Hodges, Flight Procedure Standards Branch (AFS–420), Flight Technologies and Programs Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration, Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, 6500 South MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73169 (Mail Address: P.O. Box 25082 Oklahoma City, OK 73125) telephone: (405) 954–4164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97) by amending the referenced SIAPs. The complete regulatory description of each SIAP is listed on the appropriate FAA Form 8260, as modified by the National Flight Data Center (FDC)/Permanent Notice to Airmen (P-NOTAM), and is incorporated by reference in the amendment under 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and § 97.20 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The large number of SIAPs, their complex nature, and the need for a special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the complete description of each SIAP contained in FAA form documents is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR sections and specifies the types of SIAP and the corresponding effective dates. This amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the procedure and the amendment number. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP as amended in the transmittal. For safety and timeliness of change considerations, this amendment incorporates only specific changes contained for each SIAP as modified by FDC/P–NOTAMs. The SIAPs, as modified by FDC P– NOTAM, and contained in this amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to SIAPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific conditions existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in this rule have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 6841 NOTAM as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances which created the need for all these SIAP amendments requires making them effective in less than 30 days. Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure before adopting these SIAPs are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where applicable, that good cause exists for making these SIAPs effective in less than 30 days. Conclusion The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore-(1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. For the same reason, the FAA certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

[FR Doc. E8–2005 Filed 2–5–08; 8:45 am] SUMMARY: The Consumer Product Safety Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is making corrections to the flammability standard for mattress sets that was published in the Federal Register of March 15, 2006, (71 FR 13472). The corrections rectify typographical errors, clarify technical aspects of running the flammability test required by the standard, and clarify that the certification statement on the mattress set label may appear in another language in addition to English. DATES: The corrections become effective on February 6, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 15, 2006, the Commission issued a final rule specifying a flammability standard to reduce deaths and injuries related to mattress fires. The standard contains requirements for a test procedure, recordkeeping and labeling. Other than the correction that allows translation of the certification statement, the corrections occur in section 1633.7, the provisions describing the technical details of running the flammability test. The changes are described below. In § 1633.7(a)(4), the term ‘‘bed frame’’ is changed to ‘‘test frame’’ to clarify that this refers to the frame used in the test, not a regular bed frame. This change is made in other paragraphs as well. Language also is added to this section to clarify that the angle iron should be positioned to angle down rather than up. VerDate Aug<31>2005 or TACAN; § 97.25 LOC, LOC/DME, LDA, LDA/DME, SDF, SDF/DME; § 97.27 NDB, NDB/DME; 97.29 ILS, ILS/ DME,ISMLS, MLS/DME, MSL/RNAV; 15:18 Feb 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 FDC No. In § 1633.7(a)(6), a new paragraph (v) is created to clarify that the second half of existing paragraph (iv) relates to the burner inlet line. The remaining subparagraphs are redesignated. A technical error in footnote 1 is corrected to provide the correct measurements for the plastic tubing attaching the metal arms to the gas control. In the paragraph on the flow control system, there was a technical error in the propane pressure value. 70 kPa should be 140 kPa, and 140kPa (20 psig) should be 140 ± 5 kPa (20 ± 1 psig). These measurements and an erroneous reference to a figure 8 are corrected. In § 1633.7(b)(1)(ii) the range used for the propane tank is corrected from 20 ± .5 psig to 20 ± 1 psig. In § 1633.7(d) concerning test preparation a typographical error is corrected to state that the horizontal air flow velocity adjacent to the test specimen shall be no more than 0.5 m/s. A few sentences in subparagraph (2) are changed to clarify placement of the mattress and foundation specimen on the test frame. In § 1633.7(e) a reference is corrected to correspond to the appropriate redesignated paragraph in § 1633.7(a)(6). In § 1633.7(f) the sentence concerning the general layout for the room configuration is moved to the beginning of the paragraph to make the paragraph easier to follow. In § 1633.7(h) an erroneous reference to figure 8 in subparagraph (1)(iv) is removed. Language is also added in that subparagraph to permit use of a platen that is another dimension than specified if it meets the requirements for a specific sample. In subparagraph (2)(i) rather than specifying an 8 inch length of duct tape to hold the platen in position, the language is changed to clarify that the duct tape be of sufficient length to assure that the platen stays firmly against the mattress surfaces. In subparagraph (2)(iv) language is added to clarify the use of flat stock to assure that the burner is parallel to the mattress surface. In subparagraph (2)(viii) the change clarifies that the stand off foot referred to is that of the vertical burner. The placement of footnote 9 is moved to the last sentence of this subparagraph for clarification. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 8/1712 Subject RNAV (GPS) RWY 19, ORIG. In § 1633.7(i) the abbreviation ‘‘ca.’’ is changed to the word ‘‘approximately’’ for clarification. In § 1633.12 concerning labeling, paragraph (a)(6)(iii) is corrected to make that paragraph concerning mattresses intended to be sold both alone and with a foundation consistent with paragraph (a)(6)(ii) concerning mattresses intended to be sold with a foundation. Also in § 1633.12, paragraph (d) is corrected to make clear that translation of the certification statement into another language on the reverse side of the required label is permitted. Because these are technical corrections rather than substantive changes, notice and comment is not necessary. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). The corrections clarify technical aspects of the flammability testing and labeling provisions. They do not change the substantive obligations of mattress manufacturers and importers. For the same reason, there is no need to delay the effective date for these corrections. Id. 553(d)(3).

Standard Instrument Approach Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule amends Standard Instrument Approach Procedures 
(SIAPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions 
are needed because of changes in the National Airspace System, such as 
the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding of new 
obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are 
designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace 
and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at 
the affected airports.

DATES: This rule is effective February 6, 2008. The compliance date for 
each SIAP is specified in the amendatory provisions.
    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in 
the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as 
of February 6, 2008.

telephone: (405) 954-4164.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97) by amending the referenced SIAPs. 
The complete regulatory description of each SIAP is listed on the 
appropriate FAA Form 8260, as modified by the National Flight Data 
Center (FDC)/Permanent Notice to Airmen (P-NOTAM), and is incorporated 
by reference in the amendment under 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 
Sec.  97.20 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
    The large number of SIAPs, their complex nature, and the need for a 
special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register 
expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory 
text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts 
printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages 
of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the 
complete description of each SIAP contained in FAA form documents is 
unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR sections and 
specifies the types of SIAP and the corresponding effective dates. This 
amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the procedure 
and the amendment number.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of 
each separate SIAP as amended in the transmittal. For safety and 
timeliness of change considerations, this amendment incorporates only 
specific changes contained for each SIAP as modified by FDC/P-NOTAMs.
    The SIAPs, as modified by FDC P-NOTAM, and contained in this 
amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for 
Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to 
SIAPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific conditions 
existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in this rule 
have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC NOTAM as an emergency 
action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published 
aeronautical charts. The circumstances which created the need for all 
these SIAP amendments requires making them effective in less than 30 
days.
    Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs 
and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure 
before adopting these SIAPs are impracticable and contrary to the 
public interest and, where applicable, that good cause exists for 
making these SIAPs effective in less than 30 days.

Conclusion

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
It, therefore-(1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
