SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This AD requires you to replace the cabin door rod ends with new parts including a redesigned non-binding hinge pin that replaces the existing pin at the upper door hinge. This AD results from two known occurrences of in-flight cabin door separation (one total separation and one retained by the door strut). The rod ends, a component of the door hinges, may fail and result in a door separation from the airplane while in flight. We are issuing this AD to prevent in-flight failure of the cabin door, which E:\FR\FM\10JYR1.SGM 10JYR1 39584 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 133 / Thursday, July 10, 2008 / Rules and Regulations could result in door separation from the airplane.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On March 26, 2008, we issued a proposal to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to include an AD that would apply to certain SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on April 2, 2008 (73 FR 17935). The NPRM proposed to replace the cabin door rod ends with new parts including a redesigned non-binding hinge pin that replaces the existing pin at the upper door hinge. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the proposal or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed except for minor editorial corrections. We have determined that these minor corrections: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. Costs of Compliance We estimate that the AD affects 2,308 airplanes in the U.S. registry. The costs vary from 3.5 work-hours to incorporate Cirrus Kit 70186–004 and 2.5 work-hours to incorporate Cirrus Kit 70186–005. Parts cost for either kit is $270. For the purposes of this AD, we will use 3.5 work-hours for all airplanes. Based on this, the cost of this AD is: Parts cost Labor cost 3.5 work-hours × $80 per hour = $280 ........................................................................................................... Note: CDC will provide warranty credit to the extent noted in CDC Service Bulletin 2X– 52–07 R4, dated January 24, 2008. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with RULES 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 AD. Regulatory Findings We have determined that this AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 Jul 09, 2008 Jkt 214001 Total cost per airplane $270 $550 Total fleet cost $1,269,400 or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: 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.

ACTION: Final Rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) publishes this final rule to adopt, without change, an interim final rule that implemented tariff rate quotas (‘‘TRQ’’) for a limited quantity of certain cotton shirting fabrics pursuant to Section 406 of the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (‘‘the Act’’), which President Bush signed into law on December 20, 2006 (Pub. L. 109-432). Section 406(b)(1) of the Act authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to issue licenses to eligible manufacturers under headings 9902.52.08 through 9902.52.19 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, specifying the restrictions under each such license on the quantity of cotton woven fabrics that may be entered each year by or on behalf of the manufacturer. DATES: This final rule is effective July 10, 2008. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurie Mease, Office of Textiles and Apparel, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 482-3400. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background President Bush signed the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 into law on December 20, 2006 (Pub. L. 109-432). Section 406(b)(1) of the Act authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to issue PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39585 licenses to eligible manufacturers under headings 9902.52.08 through 9902.52.19 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, specifying the restrictions under each such license on the quantity of cotton woven fabrics that may be entered each year by or on behalf of the manufacturer. The Act creates an annual tariff rate quota providing for temporary reductions through December 31, 2009 in the import duties of cotton woven fabrics suitable for making cotton shirts (new Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) headings 9902.52.08, 9902.52.09, 9902.52.10, 9902.52.11, 9902.52.12, 9902.52.13, 9902.52.14, 9902.52.15, 9902.52.16, 9902.52.17, 9902.52.18, and 9902.52.19). The reduction in duty is limited to 85 percent of the total square meter equivalents of all imported woven fabrics of cotton containing 85 percent or more by weight of cotton used by manufacturers in cutting and sewing men’s and boys’ cotton shirts in the United States and purchased by such manufacturers during calendar year 2000. The Act requires that the Secretary of Commerce must issue licenses and ensure that the tariff rate quotas are fairly allocated to eligible manufacturers under such headings 9902.52.08 through 9902.52.19. On July 24, 2007, the Department published an interim final rule that established eligibility criteria and application requirements to receive an allocation under the TRQ. See Imports of Certain Cotton Shirting Fabric: Implementation of Tariff Rate Quota Established Under the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006, 72 FR 40235 (July 24, 2007). The interim regulations were effective upon publication to prevent costs incurred by TRQ recipients that would have, in effect, nullified duty benefits, particularly for those TRQ recipients who had small shipments. The Department intends to make its determination regarding allocation of the tariff rate quota no later than December 31 of the year preceding the tariff rate quota year. Commerce anticipates publishing a Federal Register Notice (FRN) each September soliciting license applications for the following calendar year. Applications will be due within 30 days of the FRN’s publication and licenses will be issued to eligible manufacturers within 60 days of the application deadline. The tariff rate quota licenses will be issued to eligible manufacturers on the basis of the percentage of each manufacturer’s quantity of imported woven fabrics described under HTS E:\FR\FM\10JYR1.SGM 10JYR1

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 
Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This AD 
requires you to replace the cabin door rod ends with new parts 
including a redesigned non-binding hinge pin that replaces the existing 
pin at the upper door hinge. This AD results from two known occurrences 
of in-flight cabin door separation (one total separation and one 
retained by the door strut). The rod ends, a component of the door 
hinges, may fail and result in a door separation from the airplane 
while in flight. We are issuing this AD to prevent in-flight failure of 
the cabin door, which

[[Page 39584]]

could result in door separation from the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective on August 14, 2008.
    On August 14, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved 
the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this 
AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On March 26, 2008, we issued a proposal to amend part 39 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to include an AD that 
would apply to certain SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This proposal was 
published in the Federal Register as a supplemental notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) on April 2, 2008 (73 FR 17935). The NPRM proposed to 
replace the cabin door rod ends with new parts including a redesigned 
non-binding hinge pin that replaces the existing pin at the upper door 
hinge.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the proposal or on the 
determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data and determined that 
air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed 
except for minor editorial corrections. We have determined that these 
minor corrections:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that the AD affects 2,308 airplanes in the U.S. 
registry.
    The costs vary from 3.5 work-hours to incorporate Cirrus Kit 70186-
004 and 2.5 work-hours to incorporate Cirrus Kit 70186-005. Parts cost 
for either kit is $270. For the purposes of this AD, we will use 3.5 
work-hours for all airplanes. Based on this, the cost of this AD is:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                 Total cost
              Labor cost                Parts       per      Total fleet
                                         cost     airplane       cost
------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.5 work-hours x $80 per hour = $280.     $270         $550   $1,269,400
------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Note: CDC will provide warranty credit to the extent noted in 
CDC Service Bulletin 2X-52-07 R4, dated January 24, 2008.

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 AD.

Regulatory Findings

    We have determined that this AD will not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will 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.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
    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 summary of the costs to comply with this AD (and 
other information as included in the Regulatory Evaluation) and placed 
it in the AD Docket. You may get a copy of this summary by sending a 
request to us at the address listed under ADDRESSES. Include ``Docket 
No. FAA-2007-28245; Directorate Identifier 2007-CE-047-AD'' in your 
request.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from two known occurrences of in-flight 
cabin door separation (one total separation and one retained by the 
door strut). We are issuing this AD to prevent in-flight failure of 
the cabin door, which could result in door separation from the 
airplane.

Compliance

    (e) Unless already done, within the next 50 hours time-in-
service (TIS) after August 14, 2008 (the effective date of this AD) 
or within 180 days after August 14, 2008 (the effective date of this 
AD), whichever occurs first, following Cirrus Design Corporation 
Service Bulletin SB 2X-52-07 R4, dated January 24, 2008, do one of 
the following:
    (1) If threaded sleeve is installed at the cabin door rod end, 
install cabin door rod end Kit 70186-004.
    (2) If threaded sleeve is not installed at the cabin door rod 
end, install cabin door rod end Kit 70186-005.
