Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 767-200, -300, -300F, and -400ER Series Airplanes
Document Number: E9-30420
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Model 767-200, -300, -300F, and -400ER series airplanes. That AD currently requires revising the FAA-approved maintenance program to incorporate new airworthiness limitations (AWLs) for fuel tank systems to satisfy Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 requirements. That AD also requires an initial inspection to phase in certain repetitive AWL inspections, and repair if necessary. This AD clarifies the intended effect of the AD on spare and on- airplane fuel tank system components. This AD results from a design review of the fuel tank systems. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential for ignition sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Indiana
Document Number: E9-30406
Type: Rule

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Bus Emergency Exits and Window Retention and Release
Document Number: E9-30324
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-12-28
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This NPRM proposes two housekeeping measures relating to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 217, ``Bus emergency exits and window retention and release.'' First, in response to a petition for rulemaking from the School Bus Manufacturers' Technical Council, NHTSA proposes to amend the standard to specify that the exterior release (the exterior handle) for school bus rear emergency exit doors may be located opposite the door hinges. The standard currently specifies that the exterior release for rear emergency exit doors be located in the middle of the door. Second, this NPRM would clarify FMVSS No. 217 as to the number of force applications that are required to open a window or roof emergency exit. For exits with one release mechanism, the exit shall require two force applications to open. The standard currently specifies that the ``mechanism'' shall require two force applications to open. For exits with two release mechanisms, there shall be a total of three force applications to open the exit: one force application shall be applied to each of the two mechanisms to release the mechanism, and another force shall be applied to open the exit.

Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E9-30178
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-28
Agency: Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding 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.

Airworthiness Directives; AeroSpace Technologies of Australia Pty Ltd Models N22B, N22S, and N24A Airplanes
Document Number: E9-30000
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca Arriel 1A1, 1A2, 1B, 1C, 1C1, 1C2, 1D, 1D1, 1E2, 1K1, 1S, and 1S1 Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: E9-29985
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca Arriel 1A1, 1A2, 1B, 1C, 1C1, 1C2, 1D, 1D1, 1E2, 1K1, 1S, and 1S1 turboshaft engines. That AD currently requires initial and repetitive visual inspections of certain reduction gearboxes (module M05) for oil leakage, repair if leaking, and repair of all affected modules as optional terminating action to the repetitive inspections. This AD requires the same actions, but adds five more serial numbers of the reduction gearboxes (module M05) that are affected, and adds an alternative optional terminating action to the repetitive visual inspections. This AD results from Turbomeca identifying five additional reduction gearboxes (module M05) affected, and adding an alternative optional terminating action to the repetitive visual inspections. We are issuing this AD to prevent uncommanded in- flight engine shutdown, possible engine fire, and an emergency autorotation landing.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E9-29964
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive lubrication of the left and right main landing gear (MLG) forward trunnion pins; and an inspection for discrepancies of the transition radius, lead-in chamfer, and cross- bolt bore of the MLG forward trunnion pins, and repair or replacement if necessary. Doing the applicable inspections and repairs/ replacements, or overhauling the trunnion pins ends the repetitive lubrication requirements of this AD. For airplanes on which a certain repair is done, this AD requires repetitive inspections for discrepancies of the transition radius. This AD results from a report that the protective finishes on the forward trunnion pins for the left and right MLG might have been damaged during final assembly. We are issuing this AD to prevent cracking of the forward trunnion pin, which could result in fracture of the pin and consequent collapse of the MLG.

Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirements; Correction
Document Number: E9-30570
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-12-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
This document contains correcting amendments to the interim final rule entitled ``Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirements'' published in the Federal Register on November 25, 2008. The interim final rule, which requires the submission of an Importer Security Filing (ISF) for cargo arriving in the United States by vessel and a bond to secure compliance with the ISF requirement, inadvertently omitted the liability amounts for breach of the importer security filing bond and neglected to make provision for using the importer security filing bond to secure a single ISF transaction. This document clarifies the bond terms applicable to the importer security filing bond as set forth in an Appendix to the Customs and Border Protection bond regulations by adding the liability amounts for a breach of the bond and by adding a paragraph to cover a single transaction.

Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Atlantic Bluefin Tuna Season and Retention Limit Adjustments
Document Number: E9-30567
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-12-24
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
On November 4, 2009, NMFS published a proposed rule to increase the Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) General category maximum daily retention limit; allow the General category season to remain open until the January subquota is reached; and increase the Harpoon category daily incidental retention limit. The proposed rule is intended to more thoroughly utilize available U.S. BFT quota, particularly for the General and Harpoon (commercial handgear) categories. In the proposed rule, NMFS announced the end of the comment period as December 21, 2009, which would allow an approximately 45-day comment period. In order to provide additional opportunities for the public and other interested parties to comment on the proposed rule, NMFS is extending the comment period for this action until March 31, 2010. Comments received by NMFS on the proposed rule will help NMFS determine whether and how to implement final management measures for the BFT General and Harpoon categories as described in the proposed action.
