SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: History On June 7, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to modify controlled airspace at Forsyth, MT (76 FR 32879). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Tillitt Field Airport, Forsyth, MT, to accommodate IFR aircraft executing RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. This action also corrects a typographical error in the regulatory text of the Class E airspace area by correcting ‘lat. 46°05′00″ N., long. 106°210′3″ W.’ to ‘lat. 46°05′ 00″ N., long. 106°21′ 03″ W.’. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. Except for administrative changes, and the changes listed above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. The FAA has determined this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (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) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 47435 routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes additional controlled airspace at Tillitt Field Airport, Forsyth, MT.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: erowe on DSKG8SOYB1PROD with RULES A. What does the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act do? What standard is involved? The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (VGB Act), 15 U.S.C. 8001 et seq., was signed into law on December 19, 2007, and became effective on December 19, 2008. The VGB Act’s purpose is to prevent drain entrapment and child drowning in swimming pools and spas. The VGB Act requires that each swimming pool or spa drain cover manufactured, distributed, or entered into commerce in the United States conform to the entrapment protection standards of the ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:55 Aug 04, 2011 Jkt 223001 performance standard or any successor standard regulating such swimming pool or spa drain cover. 15 U.S.C. 8003(b). The standard in existence at the time the VGB Act was passed was ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007. The VGB Act provides that if a successor standard is proposed, ASME must notify the Commission of the proposed revision. Id. The Commission, if it determines that the proposed revision is in the public interest, shall incorporate the revision into the standard, after providing 30 days’ notice to the public. Id. On August 11, 2008 and October 22, 2009, ASME approved two addenda to ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007, namely, ASME A112.19.8a–2008 and ASME A112.19.8b–2009 (collectively referred to herein as ‘‘addenda’’). On February 17, 2011, the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) approved the ANSI/APSP/IAPMO–16 2011 standard, a successor standard to ASME/ANSI A112.19.8–2007, which is substantively identical to ANSI/ASME A112.19.8– 2007 and its two addenda. (In April 2011, IAPMO terminated its status as co-secretariat to the ANSI/APSP/ IAPMO–16 2011 standard, so ANSI/ APSP/IAPMO–16 2011 became ANSI/ APSP–16 2011.) On March 18, 2011, ANSI/ASME began the process of withdrawing the A112.19.8–2007 standard. We have reviewed the successor standard, ANSI/APSP–16– 2011, made comparisons to the requirements in ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007, and assessed whether the changes are in the public interest. B. What are the changes to the standard, and are the changes in the public interest? There were two substantive changes between the ANSI/ASME A112.19.8– 2007 standard and ANSI/APSP–16 2011, each of which was made in the addenda to ANSI/ASME A112.19.8– 2007. The other changes to the standard were minor and were made primarily to add clarity to the standard. We discuss the substantive changes in this part of the preamble. a. Ultraviolet Light Exposure Test The Ultraviolet Light Exposure Test (UV test) subjects the plastic drain fitting material to the damaging effects of UV rays that accompany sun exposure when the drains are installed in pools and spas. (‘‘Fitting’’ is a term used in ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007 instead of ‘‘cover.’’ ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007 indicates that ‘‘cover’’ is an obsolete term.) Tests for the structural integrity of the drain fitting are performed after the drain fittings are PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 exposed to UV light degradation. The structural integrity tests subject the drain fitting to forces expected under normal use and to excessive forces expected under extreme conditions. In ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007, the UV test is conducted by a single method. According to section 3.2 of ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007, 12 new drain fittings are placed in a UV test chamber and exposed to UV light and water spray, according to the protocol in ASTM G154, Standard Practices for Operating Fluorescent Light Apparatus for UV Exposure of Non-metallic Materials. When the drain fitting is too large to fit in a test chamber, representative sections are tested to the intent of the structural integrity tests. This means that the test procedures in the structural integrity tests must be adapted to suit the diminished size/ shape of the drain fitting section. Changes to the UV testing were made in ANSI/ASME A112.19.8a–2008 and were carried over to ANSI/APSP–16 2011. ANSI/ASME A112.19.8a–2008 includes two UV test methods. Test Method 1 follows the general fullsample UV exposure in ASME A112.19.8–2007, with the addition of two more choices for the UV exposure protocol, specifically, ASTM G155, Standard Practice for Operating Xenon Arc Light Apparatus for Exposure of Non-Metallic Materials; and ASTM G153, Standard Practice for Operating Enclosed Carbon Arc Light Apparatus for Exposure of Nonmetallic Materials. Test Method 2 is an alternate UV exposure test. Here, the fitting polymeric material is molded into small uniform specimens. Half of the specimens are exposed to UV light and water spray, and half are not exposed. The exposed and unexposed (virgin) material specimens are then tested for tensile strength and impact resistance. The samples of the material must retain at least 70% of the virgin value (meaning that the samples, when tested, must retain at least 70% of the tensile strength and impact resistance values of the unexposed material) when the tensile strength and impact resistance tests are performed. The intensification factor, K, is defined as the inverse of the lowest retained portion. Thus, for example, if 80% of the tensile strength is retained in the exposed material and 85% of the impact resistance, then the intensification factor is K=1/0.80=1.25. Complete (as sold) fittings are then tested to the structural integrity tests in sections 3.3 through 3.8 in ANSI/ASME A112.19.8–2007. For Test Method 1, the UV-exposed drain fitting is tested in the structural tests to the forces and pressures specified. This is essentially E:\FR\FM\05AUR1.SGM 05AUR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On June 7, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of proposed rulemaking to modify controlled airspace at Forsyth, MT (76 
FR 32879). Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the 
FAA. No comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 
2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface, at Tillitt Field Airport, Forsyth, MT, to 
accommodate IFR aircraft executing RNAV (GPS) standard instrument 
approach procedures at the airport. This action also corrects a 
typographical error in the regulatory text of the Class E airspace area 
by correcting `lat. 46[deg]05'00'' N., long. 106[deg]210'3'' W.' to 
`lat. 46[deg]05' 00'' N., long. 106[deg]21' 03'' W.'. This action is 
necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. Except for 
administrative changes, and the changes listed above, this rule is the 
same as that proposed in the NPRM.
    The FAA has determined this regulation only involves an established 
body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments 
are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this 
regulation: (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) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA's authority to 
issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. 
Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses the authority of the FAA 
Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more 
detail the scope of the agency's authority. This rulemaking is 
promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, 
Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with 
prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to 
ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This 
regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes 
additional controlled airspace at Tillitt Field Airport, Forsyth, MT.
