Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 58 / Monday, March 26, 2012 / Rules and Regulations material that should be required to pass the heat release and smoke emissions requirements. We have determined that special conditions would be promulgated to apply the standards defined in 14 CFR 25.853(d) to seats with large, non-metallic panels in their design. Issued in Renton, Washington, on March 14, 2012. John Piccola, Acting Manager, Transport Airplane Directorate, Aircraft Certification Service. Applicability As discussed above, these special conditions apply to Airbus A350–900 series airplanes. Should Airbus apply later for a change to the type certificate to include another model incorporating the same novel or unusual design feature, the special conditions would apply to that model as well. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Conclusion This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features on Airbus A350–900 series airplanes. It is not a rule of general applicability.
