AGENCY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 * * * * Fuel Airworthiness Limitations arising from the required systems safety analysis are items that have been shown to have failure mode(s) associated with an ‘unsafe condition’ * * *. These are identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or practices are not performed in accordance with the corrective actions(s) developed by the TC [type certificate] holder. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD becomes effective December 10, 2010. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of December 10, 2010. ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at https:// www.regulations.gov or in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M–30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC. E:\FR\FM\05NOR1.SGM 05NOR1 68186 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 214 / Friday, November 5, 2010 / Rules and Regulations FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shahram Daneshmandi, Aerospace Engineer, International Branch, ANM– 116, Transport Airplane Directorate, FAA, 1601 Lind Avenue, SW., Renton, Washington 98057–3356; telephone (425) 227–1112; fax (425) 227–1149. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with RULES Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 29, 2010 (75 FR 37339), and proposed to supersede AD 2008– 09–22, Amendment 39–15503 (73 FR 23939, May 1, 2008). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Prompted by [an] accident * * *, the FAA published SFAR 88 (Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88). Subsequently, the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) recommended the application of a similar regulation to the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) of its member countries. Under this regulation, all holders of type certificates for passenger transport aeroplanes with either a passenger capacity of 30 or more, or a payload capacity of 3 402 kg (7 500 lbs) or more, which have received their certification since 01 January 1958, are required to conduct a design review against explosion risks. In August 2005, EASA published a policy statement on the process for developing instructions for maintenance and inspection of Fuel Tank System ignition source prevention (EASA D 2005/CPRO), that also included the EASA expectations with regard to compliance times of the corrective actions on the unsafe and the not unsafe part of the harmonised design review results. Fuel Airworthiness Limitations arising from the required systems safety analysis are items that have been shown to have failure mode(s) associated with an ‘unsafe condition’ as defined in the FAA memo 2003–112–15 ‘SFAR 88—Mandatory Action Decision Criteria’. These are identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or practices are not performed in accordance with the corrective action(s) developed by the TC [type certificate] holder. To address these potential unsafe conditions, EASA issued AD 2007–0007, mandating the Fuel System Airworthiness Limitations, comprising maintenance and inspection tasks and Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) that were, at that moment, defined in issue C of EADS–CASA document DT–0–C00– 05001. That document has now been revised and updated to issue D. For the reasons described above, this EASA AD retains the requirements of AD 2007– 0007, which is superseded [and corresponds to FAA AD 2008–09–22], and requires the implementation of the revised Fuel VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Nov 04, 2010 Jkt 223001 Airworthiness Limitations contained in issue D of EADS–CASA document DT–0–C00– 05001 and accomplishment of related modifications. The required actions are retaining the limitations for fuel tank systems, adding thermal insulation to the air condition compression system, applying double bonding connection on fuel tubes, and modifying the separation between the center wing electrical harness and fuel tubes. The application of double bonding connections on fuel tubes includes doing general visual inspections for damage of the inside of the fuel tanks, and corrective actions if necessary. The corrective actions include contacting EADS CASA for repair instructions and doing the repair. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Corrections to Table 1 of This AD In the NPRM, the reference to Eaton Component Maintenance Manual (CMM) with Illustrated Parts List 28– 10–63, Revision 003, dated June 20, 2006, was incorrectly published as Eaton CMM with Illustrated Parts List 28–0–63. This final rule refers to Eaton CMM with Illustrated Parts List 28–10– 63. We have changed Table 1 of this AD to fix a typographical error, which is specified in EADS CASA CMM with Illustrated Parts List 28–21–12, Revision 003, dated June 15, 2007. The title page of that document specifies ‘‘Revision 002.’’ The correct revision level is ‘‘Revision 003.’’ Conclusion We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously. We determined that these changes will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of the AD. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might also have required different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow our FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect about 8 products of U.S. registry. The actions that are required by AD 2008–09–22 and retained in this AD take about 1 work-hour per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per workhour. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the currently required actions is $85 per product. We estimate that it will take about 90 work-hours per product to comply with the new basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per workhour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $61,200, or $7,650 per product, depending on airplane configuration. 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 this AD: E:\FR\FM\05NOR1.SGM 05NOR1 68187 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 214 / Friday, November 5, 2010 / Rules and Regulations 1.

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 removing Amendment 39–15503 (73 FR 23939, May 1, 2008) and adding the following new AD: ■ 2010–23–05 EADS CASA (Type Certificate Previously Held by Construcciones Aeronauticas, S.A.): Amendment 39– 16494. Docket No. FAA–2010–0640; Directorate Identifier 2009–NM–142–AD. Affected ADs (b) This AD supersedes AD 2008–09–22, Amendment 39–15503. Applicability (c) This AD applies to EADS CASA (Type Certificate previously held by Construcciones Aeronauticas, S.A.) Model CN–235, CN–235– 100, CN–235–200, and CN–235–300 airplanes, and Model C–295 airplanes, all serial numbers; certificated in any category. Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: Prompted by [an] accident * * *, the FAA published SFAR 88 (Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88). Subsequently, the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) recommended the application of a similar regulation to the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) of its member countries. Under this regulation, all holders of type certificates for passenger transport aeroplanes with either a passenger capacity of 30 or more, or a payload capacity of 3 402 kg (7 500 lbs) or more, which have received their certification since 01 January 1958, are required to conduct a design review against explosion risks. In August 2005, EASA [European Aviation Safety Agency] published a policy statement on the process for developing instructions for maintenance and inspection of Fuel Tank System ignition source prevention (EASA D 2005/CPRO), that also included the EASA expectations with regard to compliance times of the corrective actions on the unsafe and the not unsafe part of the harmonised design review results. Fuel Airworthiness Limitations arising from the required systems safety analysis are items that have been shown to have failure mode(s) associated with an ‘unsafe condition’ as defined in the FAA memo 2003–112–15 ‘SFAR 88—Mandatory Action Decision Criteria’. These are identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or practices are not performed in accordance with the corrective action(s) developed by the TC [type certificate] holder. To address these potential unsafe conditions, EASA issued AD 2007–0007, mandating the Fuel System Airworthiness Limitations, comprising maintenance and inspection tasks and Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) that were, at that moment, defined in issue C of EADS–CASA document DT–0–C00– 05001. That document has now been revised and updated to issue D. For the reasons described above, this EASA AD retains the requirements of AD 2007– 0007, which is superseded [and corresponds to FAA AD 2008–09–22], and requires the implementation of the revised Fuel Airworthiness Limitations contained in issue D of EADS–CASA document DT–0–C00– 05001 and accomplishment of related modifications. The required actions are retaining the limitations for fuel tank systems, adding thermal insulation to the air condition compression system, applying double bonding connection on fuel tubes, and modifying the separation between the center wing electrical harness and fuel tubes. The application of double bonding connections on fuel tubes includes doing general visual inspections for damage of the inside of the fuel tanks, and corrective actions if necessary. The corrective actions include contacting EADS CASA for repair instructions and doing the repair. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. 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. Restatement of Requirements of AD 2008– 09–22, With Revised Paragraph Formatting (g) Do the following actions. (1) Within 6 months after June 5, 2008 (the effective date of AD 2008–09–22), do the revisions specified in (g)(1)(i) or (g)(1)(ii) of this AD.

These CMM document numbers no longer apply. In addition, CMM document number 28–21–81 in EADS CASA CN–235/ C–295 Technical Document DT–0–C00– 05001, Issue C, dated October 2006, should be CMM document number 28–20–81. (2) After accomplishing the actions specified in paragraph (g)(1) of this AD, no alternative CDCCLs may be used unless the CDCCLs are approved as an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD. New Requirements of This AD mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with RULES (h) Do the following actions. (1) Within 3 months after the effective date of this AD, revise the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness by incorporating the information in EADS CASA CN–235/C– 295 Technical Document DT–0–C00–05001, Issue D, dated October 2008. Where this EADS CASA technical document refers to an EADS CASA CMM, use the applicable CMM specified in Table 1 of this AD. Doing this revision terminates the requirements specified in paragraph (g) of this AD. Note 2: Notwithstanding any other maintenance or operational requirements, components that have been identified as airworthy or installed on the affected airplanes before the revision of the fuel airworthiness limitations, as required by paragraphs (g) and (h) of this AD, do not need to be reworked in accordance with the CDCCLs. However, once the fuel airworthiness limitations have been revised, future maintenance actions on these components must be done in accordance with the CDCCLs. (2) After accomplishing the actions specified in paragraph (h)(1) of this AD, no alternative CDCCLs may be used unless the CDCCLs are approved as an AMOC in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD. Revision (3) Within 6 months after the effective date of this AD, accomplish the modifications specified in paragraphs (h)(3)(i), (h)(3)(ii), and (h)(3)(iii) of this AD, as applicable. (i) For Model CN–235, CN–235–200, and CN–235–300 airplanes having serial numbers identified in EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–21–18, dated August 2, 2007: Add thermal insulation to the air condition compression system, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–21–18, dated August 2, 2007. (ii) For Model CN–235, CN–235–200, and CN–235–300 airplanes having serial numbers identified in EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–28–18, dated August 2, 2007: Apply double bonding connections on fuel tubes and do general visual inspections for damage inside of the tank, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–28–18, dated August 2, 2007. If any damage is found inside the tank, before further flight, contact EADS CASA for repair instructions and do the repair. (iii) For Model CN–235, CN–235–200, and CN–235–300 airplanes having serial numbers identified in EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–24–20, dated August 2, 2007: Modify the separation between the center wing electrical harnesses and fuel tubes, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–24–20, dated August 2, 2007. FAA AD Difference Note 3: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information as follows: (1) The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2009–0146, dated July 3, 2009, inadvertently refers to the incorrect service bulletins. For applying double bonding connections on fuel tubes and doing general visual inspections for damage inside the tank, we refer to EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–28–18, dated August 2, 2007. For modifying the separation between the center wing electrical harnesses and fuel tubes, we refer to EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB–235–24–20, dated August 2, 2007. (2) The EASA AD 2009–0146, dated July 3, 2009; and EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB– Date 235–28–18, dated August 2, 2007; do not specify corrective actions if any damage is found inside the tank. If any damage is found inside the tank, this AD requires contacting EADS CASA for repair instructions and doing the repair. Other FAA AD Provisions (i) The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, International Branch, ANM–116, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory 
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation 
authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe 
condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe 
condition as:

    Prompted by [an] accident * * *the FAA published SFAR 88 
(Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88) * * *.
* * * * *
    Fuel Airworthiness Limitations arising from the required systems 
safety analysis are items that have been shown to have failure 
mode(s) associated with an `unsafe condition' * * *. These are 
identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable 
probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or 
practices are not performed in accordance with the corrective 
actions(s) developed by the TC [type certificate] holder.

We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe 
condition on these products.

DATES: This AD becomes effective December 10, 2010.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of December 10, 
2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. 
That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 29, 2010 (75 FR 
37339), and proposed to supersede AD 2008-09-22, Amendment 39-15503 (73 
FR 23939, May 1, 2008). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe 
condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

    Prompted by [an] accident * * *, the FAA published SFAR 88 
(Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88). Subsequently, the Joint 
Aviation Authorities (JAA) recommended the application of a similar 
regulation to the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) of its member 
countries. Under this regulation, all holders of type certificates 
for passenger transport aeroplanes with either a passenger capacity 
of 30 or more, or a payload capacity of 3 402 kg (7 500 lbs) or 
more, which have received their certification since 01 January 1958, 
are required to conduct a design review against explosion risks.
    In August 2005, EASA published a policy statement on the process 
for developing instructions for maintenance and inspection of Fuel 
Tank System ignition source prevention (EASA D 2005/CPRO), that also 
included the EASA expectations with regard to compliance times of 
the corrective actions on the unsafe and the not unsafe part of the 
harmonised design review results.
    Fuel Airworthiness Limitations arising from the required systems 
safety analysis are items that have been shown to have failure 
mode(s) associated with an `unsafe condition' as defined in the FAA 
memo 2003-112-15 `SFAR 88--Mandatory Action Decision Criteria'. 
These are identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable 
probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or 
practices are not performed in accordance with the corrective 
action(s) developed by the TC [type certificate] holder.
    To address these potential unsafe conditions, EASA issued AD 
2007-0007, mandating the Fuel System Airworthiness Limitations, 
comprising maintenance and inspection tasks and Critical Design 
Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) that were, at that moment, 
defined in issue C of EADS-CASA document DT-0-C00-05001. That 
document has now been revised and updated to issue D.
    For the reasons described above, this EASA AD retains the 
requirements of AD 2007-0007, which is superseded [and corresponds 
to FAA AD 2008-09-22], and requires the implementation of the 
revised Fuel Airworthiness Limitations contained in issue D of EADS-
CASA document DT-0-C00-05001 and accomplishment of related 
modifications.

The required actions are retaining the limitations for fuel tank 
systems, adding thermal insulation to the air condition compression 
system, applying double bonding connection on fuel tubes, and modifying 
the separation between the center wing electrical harness and fuel 
tubes. The application of double bonding connections on fuel tubes 
includes doing general visual inspections for damage of the inside of 
the fuel tanks, and corrective actions if necessary. The corrective 
actions include contacting EADS CASA for repair instructions and doing 
the repair. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in 
the AD docket.
    You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket.

Comments

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

Corrections to Table 1 of This AD

    In the NPRM, the reference to Eaton Component Maintenance Manual 
(CMM) with Illustrated Parts List 28-10-63, Revision 003, dated June 
20, 2006, was incorrectly published as Eaton CMM with Illustrated Parts 
List 28-0-63. This final rule refers to Eaton CMM with Illustrated 
Parts List 28-10-63.
    We have changed Table 1 of this AD to fix a typographical error, 
which is specified in EADS CASA CMM with Illustrated Parts List 28-21-
12, Revision 003, dated June 15, 2007. The title page of that document 
specifies ``Revision 002.'' The correct revision level is ``Revision 
003.''

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described 
previously. We determined that these changes will not increase the 
economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of the AD.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in 
general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it 
necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the 
AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these 
changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information 
provided in the MCAI and related service information.
    We might also have required different actions in this AD from those 
in the MCAI in order to follow our FAA policies. Any such differences 
are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect about 8 products of U.S. 
registry.
    The actions that are required by AD 2008-09-22 and retained in this 
AD take about 1 work-hour per product, at an average labor rate of $85 
per work-hour. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the 
currently required actions is $85 per product.
    We estimate that it will take about 90 work-hours per product to 
comply with the new basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost 
of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $61,200, or $7,650 per product, 
depending on airplane configuration.

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 this AD:

[[Page 68187]]

    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 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 on the Internet at https://www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, 
any comments received, and other information. The street address for 
the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647-5527) is in the 
ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly 
after receipt.

serial numbers; certificated in any category.

Subject

    (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 28: Fuel.

Reason

    (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) 
states:

    Prompted by [an] accident * * *, the FAA published SFAR 88 
(Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88). Subsequently, the Joint 
Aviation Authorities (JAA) recommended the application of a similar 
regulation to the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) of its member 
countries. Under this regulation, all holders of type certificates 
for passenger transport aeroplanes with either a passenger capacity 
of 30 or more, or a payload capacity of 3 402 kg (7 500 lbs) or 
more, which have received their certification since 01 January 1958, 
are required to conduct a design review against explosion risks.
    In August 2005, EASA [European Aviation Safety Agency] published 
a policy statement on the process for developing instructions for 
maintenance and inspection of Fuel Tank System ignition source 
prevention (EASA D 2005/CPRO), that also included the EASA 
expectations with regard to compliance times of the corrective 
actions on the unsafe and the not unsafe part of the harmonised 
design review results.
    Fuel Airworthiness Limitations arising from the required systems 
safety analysis are items that have been shown to have failure 
mode(s) associated with an `unsafe condition' as defined in the FAA 
memo 2003-112-15 `SFAR 88--Mandatory Action Decision Criteria'. 
These are identified in Failure Conditions for which an unacceptable 
probability of ignition risk could exist if specific tasks and/or 
practices are not performed in accordance with the corrective 
action(s) developed by the TC [type certificate] holder.
    To address these potential unsafe conditions, EASA issued AD 
2007-0007, mandating the Fuel System Airworthiness Limitations, 
comprising maintenance and inspection tasks and Critical Design 
Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) that were, at that moment, 
defined in issue C of EADS-CASA document DT-0-C00-05001. That 
document has now been revised and updated to issue D.
    For the reasons described above, this EASA AD retains the 
requirements of AD 2007-0007, which is superseded [and corresponds 
to FAA AD 2008-09-22], and requires the implementation of the 
revised Fuel Airworthiness Limitations contained in issue D of EADS-
CASA document DT-0-C00-05001 and accomplishment of related 
modifications.
    The required actions are retaining the limitations for fuel tank 
systems, adding thermal insulation to the air condition compression 
system, applying double bonding connection on fuel tubes, and 
modifying the separation between the center wing electrical harness 
and fuel tubes. The application of double bonding connections on 
fuel tubes includes doing general visual inspections for damage of 
the inside of the fuel tanks, and corrective actions if necessary. 
The corrective actions include contacting EADS CASA for repair 
instructions and doing the repair. You may obtain further 
information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket.

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.

Restatement of Requirements of AD 2008-09-22, With Revised Paragraph 
Formatting

    (g) Do the following actions.
    (1) Within 6 months after June 5, 2008 (the effective date of AD 
2008-09-22), do the revisions specified in (g)(1)(i) or (g)(1)(ii) 
of this AD.
    (i) Revise the Airworthiness Limitations section of the 
Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to include the CDCCL data 
using a method approved in accordance with the procedures specified 
in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD.
    (ii) Revise the Airworthiness Limitations section of the 
Instructions for Continued Airworthiness by incorporating the 
information in EADS CASA CN-235/C-295 Technical Document DT-0-C00-
05001, Issue C, dated October 2006. Where this EADS CASA technical 
document refers to an EADS CASA component maintenance manual (CMM), 
use the applicable CMM specified in Table 1 of this AD.

    (2) After accomplishing the actions specified in paragraph 
(g)(1) of this AD, no alternative CDCCLs may be used unless the 
CDCCLs are approved as an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) in 
accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (i)(1) of this 
AD.

New Requirements of This AD

    (h) Do the following actions.
    (1) Within 3 months after the effective date of this AD, revise 
the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for 
Continued Airworthiness by incorporating the information in EADS 
CASA CN-235/C-295 Technical Document DT-0-C00-05001, Issue D, dated 
October 2008. Where this EADS CASA technical document refers to an 
EADS CASA CMM, use the applicable CMM specified in Table 1 of this 
AD. Doing this revision terminates the requirements specified in 
paragraph (g) of this AD.

    Note 2: Notwithstanding any other maintenance or operational 
requirements, components that have been identified as airworthy or 
installed on the affected airplanes before the revision of the fuel 
airworthiness limitations, as required by paragraphs (g) and (h) of 
this AD, do not need to be reworked in accordance with the CDCCLs. 
However, once the fuel airworthiness limitations have been revised, 
future maintenance actions on these components must be done in 
accordance with the CDCCLs.

    (2) After accomplishing the actions specified in paragraph 
(h)(1) of this AD, no alternative CDCCLs may be used unless the 
CDCCLs are approved as an AMOC in accordance with the procedures 
specified in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD.
    (3) Within 6 months after the effective date of this AD, 
accomplish the modifications specified in paragraphs (h)(3)(i), 
(h)(3)(ii), and (h)(3)(iii) of this AD, as applicable.
    (i) For Model CN-235, CN-235-200, and CN-235-300 airplanes 
having serial numbers identified in EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB-
235-21-18, dated August 2, 2007: Add thermal insulation to the air 
condition compression system, in accordance with the Accomplishment 
Instructions of EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB-235-21-18, dated 
August 2, 2007.
    (ii) For Model CN-235, CN-235-200, and CN-235-300 airplanes 
having serial numbers identified in EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB-
235-28-18, dated August 2, 2007: Apply double bonding connections on 
fuel tubes and do general visual inspections for damage inside of 
the tank, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of EADS 
CASA Service Bulletin SB-235-28-18, dated August 2, 2007. If any 
damage is found inside the tank, before further flight, contact EADS 
CASA for repair instructions and do the repair.
    (iii) For Model CN-235, CN-235-200, and CN-235-300 airplanes 
having serial numbers identified in EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB-
235-24-20, dated August 2, 2007: Modify the separation between the 
center wing electrical harnesses and fuel tubes, in accordance with 
the Accomplishment Instructions of EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB-
235-24-20, dated August 2, 2007.

FAA AD Difference

    Note 3: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information 
as follows:
    (1) The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2009-0146, 
dated July 3, 2009, inadvertently refers to the incorrect service 
bulletins. For applying double bonding connections on fuel tubes and 
doing general visual inspections for damage inside the tank, we 
refer to EADS CASA Service Bulletin SB-235-28-18, dated August 2, 
2007. For modifying the separation between the center wing 
electrical harnesses and fuel tubes, we refer to EADS CASA Service 
Bulletin SB-235-24-20, dated August 2, 2007.
    (2) The EASA AD 2009-0146, dated July 3, 2009; and EADS CASA 
Service Bulletin SB-235-28-18, dated August 2, 2007; do not specify 
corrective actions if any damage is found inside the tank. If any 
damage is found inside the tank, this AD requires contacting EADS 
CASA for repair instructions and doing the repair.

Other FAA AD Provisions

    (i) The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
International Branch, ANM-116, FAA, has the authority to approve 
AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 
39.19. Send information to Attn: Shahram Daneshmandi, Aerospace 
Engineer, International Branch, ANM-116, Transport Airplane 
Directorate, FAA, 1601 Lind Avenue, SW., Renton, Washington 98057-
3356; telephone (425) 227-1112; fax (425) 227-1149. Before using any 
approved AMOC on any airplane to which the AMOC applies, notify your 
principal maintenance inspector (PMI) or principal avionics 
inspector (PAI), as appropriate, or lacking a principal inspector, 
your local Flight Standards District Office. The AMOC approval 
letter must specifically reference this AD.
    (2) Airworthy Product: For any requirement in this AD to obtain 
corrective actions from a manufacturer or other source, use these 
actions if they are FAA-approved. Corrective actions are considered 
FAA-approved if they are approved by the State of Design Authority 
(or their delegated agent). You are required to assure the product 
is airworthy before it is returned to service.
    (3) Reporting Requirements: For any reporting requirement in 
this AD, under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has 
approved the information collection requirements and has assigned 
OMB Control Number 2120-0056.
