List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: ■ PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new AD: ■ the fact that a valve spring was installed on the flapper hinge pin. This valve spring should have been removed prior to installation of the valves. It was subsequently determined that this condition is restricted to the 21 aircraft listed in the Applicability section above. With the valve spring installed, the flapper valve is held closed by the valve spring, preventing gravity feed. In the event of scavenge system failure, the collector tank fuel level can no longer be maintained, potentially leading to an in-flight engine shutdown. In order to ensure adequate fuel transfer to the collector tank at all times, this directive mandates a one-time [detailed] inspection of each of the six flapper valves, removal of the valve spring, if installed, and application of an identification mark on each inspected valve. actions if they are FAA-approved.

Background As a result of the removal of the regime of Saddam Hussein and other developments in Iraq, the President issued Executive Order 13350 on July 29, 2004 (69 FR 46055, July 30, 2004). Executive Order 13350 terminated the national emergency declared with respect to Iraq in Executive Order 12722 of August 2, 1990. In addition, Executive Order 13350 revoked Executive Order 12722, Executive Order 12724 of August 9, 1990, Executive Order 12743 of January 18, 1991, Executive Order 12751 of February 14, 1991, and Executive Order 12817 of October 21, 1992. These Executive orders were all in furtherance of the national emergency declared in Executive Order 12722. In Executive Order 12722, the President ordered the blocking of all property and interests in property that were in the United States or that came within the possession or control of United States persons, including overseas branches, of the Government of Iraq, its agencies, instrumentalities, and controlled entities, and the Central Bank of Iraq (55 FR 31803, August 3, 1990). Executive Order 12722 prohibited the importation of any goods or services of Iraqi origin into the United States and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:11 Sep 10, 2010 Jkt 220001 the exportation of any goods, technology, or services from the United States to Iraq. Executive Order 12722 also prohibited transactions relating to transportation and travel to or from Iraq by United States citizens or permanent resident aliens. The subsequent Executive orders took various additional steps with respect to the situation in Iraq. Section 207(a) of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (‘‘IEEPA’’) (50 U.S.C. 1706(a)) contains a provision that allows the President to continue to prohibit transactions involving property in which a foreign country or national thereof has an interest after a national emergency has been terminated if the President determines that the continuation of such a prohibition with respect to that property is necessary on account of claims involving such country or its nationals. Pursuant to section 207(a) of IEEPA, the President determined in Section 1 of Executive Order 13350 that continuation of prohibitions with regard to transactions involving property blocked pursuant to Executive Orders 12722 or 12724 that continued to be blocked as of July 30, 2004, was necessary on account of claims involving Iraq. The new Iraq Stabilization and Insurgency Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 576, include a general license unblocking all remaining property blocked pursuant to Section 1 of Executive Order 13350. See 31 CFR 576.510. Please note that certain transactions relating to Iraq remain subject to the Iraq Stabilization and Insurgency Regulations, 31 CFR part 576, which implement Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, Executive Order 13315 of August 28, 2003, Executive Order 13350 of July 29, 2004, Executive Order 13364 of November 29, 2004, and Executive Order 13438 of July 17, 2007. Accordingly, OFAC is removing the Iraqi Sanctions Regulations (the ‘‘Regulations’’) in 31 CFR part 575. The removal of part 575 from 31 CFR chapter V does not affect ongoing enforcement proceedings or prevent the initiation of enforcement proceedings where the relevant statute of limitations has not run. Executive Order 12866, Administrative Procedure Act, and Regulatory Flexibility Act Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function, the provisions of Executive Order 12866 and the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 55463 are inapplicable.

Background

    As a result of the removal of the regime of Saddam Hussein and 
other developments in Iraq, the President issued Executive Order 13350 
on July 29, 2004 (69 FR 46055, July 30, 2004). Executive Order 13350 
terminated the national emergency declared with respect to Iraq in 
Executive Order 12722 of August 2, 1990. In addition, Executive Order 
13350 revoked Executive Order 12722, Executive Order 12724 of August 9, 
1990, Executive Order 12743 of January 18, 1991, Executive Order 12751 
of February 14, 1991, and Executive Order 12817 of October 21, 1992. 
These Executive orders were all in furtherance of the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 12722.
    In Executive Order 12722, the President ordered the blocking of all 
property and interests in property that were in the United States or 
that came within the possession or control of United States persons, 
including overseas branches, of the Government of Iraq, its agencies, 
instrumentalities, and controlled entities, and the Central Bank of 
Iraq (55 FR 31803, August 3, 1990). Executive Order 12722 prohibited 
the importation of any goods or services of Iraqi origin into the 
United States and the exportation of any goods, technology, or services 
from the United States to Iraq. Executive Order 12722 also prohibited 
transactions relating to transportation and travel to or from Iraq by 
United States citizens or permanent resident aliens. The subsequent 
Executive orders took various additional steps with respect to the 
situation in Iraq.
    Section 207(a) of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act 
(``IEEPA'') (50 U.S.C. 1706(a)) contains a provision that allows the 
President to continue to prohibit transactions involving property in 
which a foreign country or national thereof has an interest after a 
national emergency has been terminated if the President determines that 
the continuation of such a prohibition with respect to that property is 
necessary on account of claims involving such country or its nationals. 
Pursuant to section 207(a) of IEEPA, the President determined in 
Section 1 of Executive Order 13350 that continuation of prohibitions 
with regard to transactions involving property blocked pursuant to 
Executive Orders 12722 or 12724 that continued to be blocked as of July 
30, 2004, was necessary on account of claims involving Iraq. The new 
Iraq Stabilization and Insurgency Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 
576, include a general license unblocking all remaining property 
blocked pursuant to Section 1 of Executive Order 13350. See 31 CFR 
576.510.
    Please note that certain transactions relating to Iraq remain 
subject to the Iraq Stabilization and Insurgency Regulations, 31 CFR 
part 576, which implement Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, 
Executive Order 13315 of August 28, 2003, Executive Order 13350 of July 
29, 2004, Executive Order 13364 of November 29, 2004, and Executive 
Order 13438 of July 17, 2007.
    Accordingly, OFAC is removing the Iraqi Sanctions Regulations (the 
``Regulations'') in 31 CFR part 575. The removal of part 575 from 31 
CFR chapter V does not affect ongoing enforcement proceedings or 
prevent the initiation of enforcement proceedings where the relevant 
statute of limitations has not run.

Executive Order 12866, Administrative Procedure Act, and Regulatory 
Flexibility Act

    Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function, the 
provisions of Executive Order 12866 and the Administrative Procedure 
Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity 
for public participation, and delay in effective date are inapplicable. 
Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this rule, the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) does not apply.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this rule does 
not impose information collection requirements that would require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.

List of Subjects in 31 CFR Part 575

    Administrative practice and procedure, Banks, Banking, Blocking of 
assets, Exports, Foreign trade, Imports, Iraq, Oil imports, Penalties, 
Petroleum, Petroleum products, Reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements, Specially designated nationals, Terrorism, Travel 
restrictions.
