SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a document in the Federal Register on September 28, 2010, concerning a public meeting and availability of a framework document initiating the rulemaking process to amend the energy conservation standards for certain commercial and industrial electric motors. DOE seeks comment from interested parties on the procedural and analytical approaches it anticipates using to evaluate energy conservation standards for commercial and industrial electric motors, which are addressed in the framework document, available at https:// www1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/ appliance_standards/commercial/ electric_motors.html. The framework document is the starting point for potentially amending the energy conservation standards for electric motors prescribed in the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended, (EPCA) and codified in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 431. The notice of public meeting and availability of the framework document published on September 28, 2010 (75 FR 59657) informed interested parties that DOE would accept written comments on the framework document no later than October 28, 2010. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 67637 (ACEEE), and the Appliance Standards Awareness Project (ASAP) requested a comment deadline extension of two weeks after the transcript of the October 18, 2010, framework document public meeting is posted on-line and available for public review. Based on the joint request from NEMA, ACEEE, and ASAP, DOE believes that extending the comment period to allow additional time for interested parties to submit comments is appropriate. Therefore, DOE is extending the comment period until November 24, 2010, to provide interested parties additional time to prepare and submit comments. DOE will accept comments received no later than November 24, 2010 and will not consider any further extensions to the comment period. If DOE receives any comments after October 28, 2010, but before the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, DOE will consider those comments to be timely filed.

SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
certain Model 737-700, -700C, -800, and -900ER series airplanes, Model 
747-400F series airplanes, and Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes. 
This proposed AD would require an inspection for affected serial 
numbers of the crew oxygen mask stowage box units; and replacement of 
the crew oxygen mask stowage box unit with a new crew oxygen mask 
stowage unit, if necessary. This proposed AD results

[[Page 67638]]

from reports indicating that certain crew oxygen mask stowage box units 
were possibly delivered with a burr in the inlet fitting. The burr may 
break loose during test or operation and may pose an ignition source or 
cause an inlet valve to jam. We are proposing this AD to prevent an 
ignition source, which could result in an oxygen-fed fire; or could 
cause an inlet valve to jam in a crew oxygen mask stowage box unit, 
which could result in restricted flow of oxygen.

Discussion

    We received reports indicating that crew oxygen mask stowage box 
units having part number (P/N) MXP147, MXP147-2, MXP147-3, MXP147-5, 
MXP402, and MXP410-1, that were manufactured between July 12, 2007, and 
November 20, 2007, were possibly delivered with a burr in the inlet 
fitting. If not corrected, the burr may break loose during test or 
operation and may pose an ignition source, which could result in an 
oxygen-fed fire; or could cause an inlet valve to jam in an oxygen mask 
stowage box unit, which could result in restricted flow of oxygen.

Relevant Service Information

    We have reviewed Boeing Alert Service Bulletins 737-35A1121, dated 
December 14, 2009; 747-35A2126, dated October 8, 2009; and 767-35A0057, 
dated October 8, 2009. The service bulletins describe procedures for a 
general visual inspection for affected serial numbers of the crew 
oxygen mask stowage box units, and replacement of the affected crew 
oxygen mask stowage box unit with a new crew oxygen mask stowage box 
unit.
    The service information refers to Intertechnique Service Bulletin 
MXP1/4-35-175, dated September 11, 2009, for inspecting the serial 
numbers of the crew oxygen mask stowage box units.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD

    We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all relevant 
information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is 
likely to exist or develop in other products of these same type 
designs. This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions 
specified in the service information described previously.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 40 airplanes of U.S. 
registry. We also estimate that it would take about 1 work-hour per 
product to comply with this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 
per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this 
proposed AD to the U.S. operators to be $3,400, or $85 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.
    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,

Comments Due Date

    (a) We must receive comments by December 20, 2010.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to The Boeing Company airplanes, 
certificated in any category, as identified in paragraphs (c)(1), 
(c)(2), and (c)(3) of this AD.
    (1) Model 737-700, -700C, -800, -900ER series airplanes, as 
identified in Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737-35A1121, dated 
December 14, 2009.

Subject

    (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 35: Oxygen.

Unsafe Condition

    (e) This AD results from reports indicating that certain crew 
oxygen mask stowage box units were possibly delivered with a burr in 
the inlet fitting. The Federal Aviation Administration is issuing 
this AD to prevent an ignition source, which could result in an 
oxygen-fed fire; or could cause an inlet valve to jam in an oxygen 
mask stowage box unit, which could result in restricted flow of 
oxygen.

Compliance

    (f) You are responsible for having the actions required by this 
AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the 
actions have already been done.

Inspection and Corrective Action

    (g) Within 24 months after the effective date of this AD: Do a 
general visual inspection to determine if the serial number of the 
crew oxygen mask stowage box units is identified in the Appendix of 
Intertechnique Service Bulletin MXP1/4-35-175, dated September 11, 
2009, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of the 
applicable Boeing Alert Service Bulletin listed in Table 1 of this 
AD. A review of airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu 
of this inspection if the serial number of the crew oxygen mask 
stowage box units can be conclusively determined from that review. 
If any crew oxygen mask stowage box unit has a serial number 
identified in the Appendix of Intertechnique Service Bulletin MXP1/
4-35-175, dated September 11, 2009: Before further flight, replace 
the crew oxygen mask stowage box unit with a new unit, in accordance 
with the Accomplishment Instructions of the applicable Boeing alert 
service bulletin listed in Table 1 of this AD.
