A comment to OMB is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication of this proposed rule. Disease surveillance plays an important role in APHIS’ mission of protecting the health of livestock populations in the United States, and testing animals for disease is an important surveillance tool. To enhance APHIS’ surveillance capabilities, we are proposing to amend the regulations regarding the movement of livestock to require approved livestock facilities and listed slaughtering and rendering establishments to maintain certain records for 5 years. Currently, approved livestock facilities are required to retain certain records for 2 years, and there are no record retention provisions that apply to listed slaughtering and rendering establishments. Requiring the retention of certain records for 5 years would allow APHIS to trace the prior movements of diseased livestock further into the past than is currently possible, thereby providing the opportunity to locate potentially infected or exposed livestock that might otherwise remain unidentified. We are also proposing to require the operators of slaughtering and rendering establishments to sign listing agreements to document their agreement to comply with the requirements of the regulations for listed slaughtering and rendering establishments. Such listing agreements are currently required for approved livestock facilities, but not for slaughtering or rendering facilities. The proposed change would eliminate that inconsistency. We are soliciting comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our proposed information collection and recordkeeping requirements. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of our agency’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the information collection on those who are to respond (such as through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:17 Jul 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 information technology; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses). Estimate of burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.0830985 hours per response. Respondents: Livestock auction market, slaughtering, and rendering plant personnel. Estimated annual number of respondents: 710. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1. Estimated annual number of responses: 710. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 59 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Mrs. Celeste Sickles, APHIS’ Information Collection Coordinator, at (301) 851–2908. E-Government Act Compliance The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is committed to compliance with the E-Government Act to promote the use of the Internet and other information technologies, to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information and services, and for other purposes.

Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2008–0013, dated January 24, 2008 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is issued following the discovery of a potential chafing between the rheostat of the 3rd crew member control panel reading light and the air gasper flexible hose, or with the electrical wires nearby. If le[f]t uncorrected, this chafing may expose the metallic spiral armature of the flexible hose, or damage the electrical wires insulation, which could result in a short-circuit generating sustained overheating and smoke emission. This AD requires an inspection of the air gasper installation in the 3rd crew control panel of the LH [left-hand] and RH [righthand] crew closet for interference and damage and applicable related corrective actions. The corrective actions include replacing the flexible hoses and installing ROUNDIT insulation sleeving to the wires near the rheostat. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Relevant Service Information Dassault has issued Service Bulletins F900–360 and F900EX–261, both dated July 20, 2005; and F2000–316, dated July 27, 2005. The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 38347 Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might also have proposed different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a NOTE within the proposed AD. Costs of Compliance Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD would affect 335 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take 4 workhours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $80 per workhour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $107,200, or $320 per product. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in ‘‘Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General Requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. Regulatory Findings We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2008-0013, dated January 24, 2008 (referred to 
after this as ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the 
specified products. The MCAI states:

    This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is issued following the 
discovery of a potential chafing between the rheostat of the 3rd 
crew member control panel reading light and the air gasper flexible 
hose, or with the electrical wires nearby. If le[f]t uncorrected, 
this chafing may expose the metallic spiral armature of the flexible 
hose, or damage the electrical wires insulation, which could result 
in a short-circuit generating sustained overheating and smoke 
emission.
    This AD requires an inspection of the air gasper installation in 
the 3rd crew control panel of the LH [left-hand] and RH [right-hand] 
crew closet for interference and damage and applicable related 
corrective actions.

The corrective actions include replacing the flexible hoses and 
installing ROUNDIT insulation sleeving to the wires near the rheostat. 
You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket.

Relevant Service Information

    Dassault has issued Service Bulletins F900-360 and F900EX-261, both 
dated July 20, 2005; and F2000-316, dated July 27, 2005. The actions 
described in this service information are intended to correct the 
unsafe condition identified in the MCAI.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in 
general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it 
necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the 
AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these 
changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information 
provided in the MCAI and related service information.
    We might also have proposed different actions in this AD from those 
in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are 
highlighted in a NOTE within the proposed AD.

Costs of Compliance

    Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD 
would affect 335 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it 
would take 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic 
requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $80 per 
work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed 
AD on U.S. operators to be $107,200, or $320 per product.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. ``Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs'' 
describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
``Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General 
Requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not 
have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship 
between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution 
of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.

[[Page 38348]]

    For the reasons discussed above, I certify this proposed 
regulation:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 
12866;
    2. Is not a ``significant rule'' under the DOT Regulatory Policies 
and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and
    3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket.

crew member control panel reading light and the air gasper flexible 
hose, or with the electrical wires nearby. If le[f]t uncorrected, 
this chafing may expose the metallic spiral armature of the flexible 
hose, or damage the electrical wires insulation, which could result 
in a short-circuit generating sustained overheating and smoke 
emission.
    This AD requires an inspection of the air gasper installation in 
the 3rd crew control panel of the LH [left-hand] and RH [right-hand] 
crew closet for interference and damage and applicable related 
corrective actions.

The corrective actions include replacing the flexible hose and 
installing ROUNDIT insulation sleeving to the wires near the 
rheostat.

Actions and Compliance

    (f) Within 7 months after the effective date of this AD, unless 
already done, do a detailed inspection of the air gasper 
installation in the 3rd crew member control panel of the left-hand 
and right-hand crew closet for interference and damage, and do all 
applicable related corrective actions as instructed in the 
Accomplishment Instructions of the applicable service information 
listed in Table 1 of this AD. Corrective actions must be done before 
further flight.
