ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) Model 390 airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect hydraulic pump pressure output hose assemblies to determine if they are from the affected lots, inspect for hydraulic fluid leaks if the hose assemblies are from the affected lots, and replace all affected hose assemblies. This AD results from reports of hydraulic leaks from the hydraulic pump pressure output hose assemblies. We are issuing this AD to prevent leakage of hydraulic fluid from the pump output hose within the engine compartment, which could result in an in-flight fire. DATES: This AD becomes effective on November 3, 2008. On November 3, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD. We must receive any comments on this AD by December 23, 2008. ADDRESSES: Use one of the following addresses to comment on this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We received reports of hydraulic leaks from the hydraulic pump pressure output hose assemblies delivered to HBC. These assemblies were specially designed for use on the Model 390 airplanes and delivered only to HBC. Subsequent investigation revealed that a particular lot of hoses were thermally damaged during the manufacturing extrusion process. Parker’s Stratoflex Products division discovered that some hose assemblies delivered to HBC for the Model 390 airplanes were in the thermally damaged lot of hoses. This condition, if not corrected, could result in leakage of hydraulic fluid from the pump output hose within the engine compartment, which could cause an inflight fire. PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Revision Date Relevant Service Information We reviewed Hawker Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 29–3897, dated August 2008. The service information describes procedures for inspection for suspect hydraulic pump pressure output hose assemblies and replacement of hose assemblies if necessary. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. This AD requires inspection for suspect hydraulic pump pressure output hose assemblies and replacement of hose assemblies if necessary. FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because leakage of hydraulic fluid from the pump output hose within the engine compartment could result in an in-flight fire. Therefore, we determined that notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in fewer than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not precede it by notice and an opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number ‘‘FAA– 2008–1127; Directorate Identifier 2008– CE–061–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date E:\FR\FM\24OCR1.SGM 24OCR1 63358 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 207 / Friday, October 24, 2008 / Rules and Regulations and may amend the AD in light of those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive concerning this AD. 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 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 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 AD and placed it in the AD docket. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket that contains the AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The Docket Office (telephone (800) 647– 5527) is located at the street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is amending its Rules of Practice and Rules Relating to Reparation Proceedings, respectively, to standardize service and filing by electronic means. The amendments also revise rules regarding formatting requirements of reparations documents filed with the Proceedings Clerk. DATES: Effective October 24, 2008.

Telephone: (202) 418–5128. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Personal delivery and delivery by U.S. mail are the manners of filing and service authorized in proceedings under 17 CFR Part 12. Since 1998, Part 10 of the Commission Rules has provided an additional means—service by fax. Up to now, neither Parts 10 nor 12 have provided for service by e-mail. In keeping with the demands of today’s world, and especially in light of cautionary measures used in the postSeptember 11 climate that have slowed incoming mail to the agency, the Commission proposes to authorize fax and e-mail as additional manners of filing and service, to: (1) Avoid undue delay; (2) take advantage of technological developments, which will be faster and less costly than the mails; and (3) streamline procedures. The Commission and the federal government overall are engaged in ongoing efforts to use technology to increase efficiency. Since March 2000, the Commission has allowed customers, clients of Commission registrants and PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 commodity pool participants to sign electronically certain documents required under the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’), 7 U.S.C. 1 et seq. and Commission Rules. See, e.g., 17 CFR 1.3(tt) and 1.4 (rules dealing with electronic signatures). In May 2000, the Office of Management and Budget issued a Guide on Implementation of the Government Paperwork Elimination Act (‘‘GPEA’’) at 65 FR 255508, 2000 WL 517619. More recently, on July 25, 2007, the Commission, acting on a request made by the National Futures Association (‘‘NFA’’), amended 17 CFR 171.9(b) to allow for service by fax and e-mail in appeals from NFA actions. Thus, the amendments complement existing Commission Rules and government policy dealing with electronic submissions. All of the amendments under Parts 10 and 12 make filing and service by fax and e-mail effective upon transmission. While authorizing these electronic means of filing and service, the Commission wishes to make clear that these options may be used on a case-bycase basis at the discretion of the Presiding Officer, with the parties’ consent. Signed documents filed or served by electronic means must be in PDF or other non-alterable form. With respect to Part 12, when a document to be filed requires the concurrent submission of a filing fee, filing is not complete until the fee has been paid. See Commission Rule 12.25. The Part 12 amended rules also allow filing and service by commercial package delivery service, which is already allowed under the Part 10 rules. To harmonize Parts 10 and 12, when documents are served by mail, the length of time within which a party being served in a Part 10 proceeding may respond is extended from three (3) extra days as Part 10 currently provides, to five (5) extra days, as provided in Part 12. The amendments affect the Rules’ provisions respecting service upon parties by the Proceedings Clerk on behalf of the Commission, i.e., Commission Rules 10.12(b) and 12.10(a)(3), providing that the Commission, in its discretion and with E:\FR\FM\24OCR1.SGM 24OCR1

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) Model 390 airplanes. This 
AD requires you to inspect hydraulic pump pressure output hose 
assemblies to determine if they are from the affected lots, inspect for 
hydraulic fluid leaks if the hose assemblies are from the affected 
lots, and replace all affected hose assemblies. This AD results from 
reports of hydraulic leaks from the hydraulic pump pressure output hose 
assemblies. We are issuing this AD to prevent leakage of hydraulic 
fluid from the pump output hose within the engine compartment, which 
could result in an in-flight fire.

DATES: This AD becomes effective on November 3, 2008.
    On November 3, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved 
the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this 
AD.
    We must receive any comments on this AD by December 23, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We received reports of hydraulic leaks from the hydraulic pump 
pressure output hose assemblies delivered to HBC. These assemblies were 
specially designed for use on the Model 390 airplanes and delivered 
only to HBC. Subsequent investigation revealed that a particular lot of 
hoses were thermally damaged during the manufacturing extrusion 
process. Parker's Stratoflex Products division discovered that some 
hose assemblies delivered to HBC for the Model 390 airplanes were in 
the thermally damaged lot of hoses.
    This condition, if not corrected, could result in leakage of 
hydraulic fluid from the pump output hose within the engine 
compartment, which could cause an in-flight fire.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Hawker Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 29-
3897, dated August 2008. The service information describes procedures 
for inspection for suspect hydraulic pump pressure output hose 
assemblies and replacement of hose assemblies if necessary.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the information and 
determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist 
or develop on other products of the same type design. This AD requires 
inspection for suspect hydraulic pump pressure output hose assemblies 
and replacement of hose assemblies if necessary.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because 
leakage of hydraulic fluid from the pump output hose within the engine 
compartment could result in an in-flight fire. Therefore, we determined 
that notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD 
are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment 
effective in fewer than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not precede it by notice and an opportunity for 
public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, 
or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an address listed 
under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number ``FAA-2008-1127; 
Directorate Identifier 2008-CE-061-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD. We will consider 
all comments received by the closing date

[[Page 63358]]

and may amend the AD in light of those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://
www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We 
will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive concerning this AD.

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 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 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 AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket that contains the AD, the regulatory 
evaluation, any comments received, and other information on the 
Internet at http://www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket 
Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 
except Federal holidays. The Docket Office (telephone (800) 647-5527) 
is located at the street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. 
Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.
