Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190–100 STD, –100 LR, –100 IGW, –200 STD, –200 LR, and –200 IGW airplanes. That AD currently requires revising the maintenance program to incorporate modifications in the Airworthiness Limitation Section (ALS) of the EMBRAER ERJ 190 Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR). This new AD requires revising the maintenance program to incorporate modifications in the ALS of the EMBRAER ERJ 190 MRBR to include new inspection tasks and their respective thresholds and intervals. This AD was prompted by issuance of new inspection tasks and their respective thresholds and intervals. We are issuing this AD since failure to inspect these structural components according to the new ALS tasks, thresholds, and intervals could prevent a timely detection of fatigue cracking, which if not properly addressed, could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective January 14, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of January 14, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of July 6, 2010 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010). ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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.

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 6, 2012 (77 FR 33334), and proposed to supersede AD 2010– 11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: During the airplane full scale fatigue test, cracks were found in some structural components of the airplane. Analysis of these cracks resulted in modifications on the Airworthiness Limitation Section (ALS) of Embraer ERJ 190 Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR), to include new inspections tasks and its respective thresholds and intervals. Failure to inspect these structural components, according to the new tasks, thresholds and intervals, could prevent a timely detection of fatigue cracking. These cracks, if not properly addressed, could adversely affect the structural integrity of the airplane. Since this condition may occur in other airplanes of the same type and affects flight safety, a corrective action is required. Thus, sufficient reason exists to request compliance ˆ with this [Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil ¸˜ (ANAC)] AD in the indicated time limit. 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 have considered the comments received. Request To Incorporate New and Revised Structural Airworthiness Limitations Embraer requested that we include EMBRAER Temporary Revision (TR) 5– 5, dated May 24, 2012; and EMBRAER TR 5–7, dated August 12, 2012; to Appendix A, Part 2, Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI)— Structures, of the EMBRAER 190 MRBR, MRB–1928, in the operators’ E:\FR\FM\10DER1.SGM 10DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 237 / Monday, December 10, 2012 / Rules and Regulations srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with maintenance programs. Embraer points out that those TRs include additional maintenance tasks that were approved in recent design changes, which identify and mitigate potential premature structural cracks. We disagree. There have been numerous changes to the structural inspection requirements intended to identify potential premature cracks since the last structural airworthiness limitations (EMBRAER TR 2–5, dated December 6, 2007; and EMBRAER TR 2– 6, dated February 12, 2008; to Appendix A, Part 2, Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI) –Structures, of the EMBRAER 190 MRBR, MRB–1928 were mandated in FAA AD 2010–11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010). The requested changes would alter the actions currently required by this AD, so additional rulemaking would be required. We find that delaying this action would be inappropriate in light of the identified unsafe condition. In addition, we have contacted the ANAC, the aviation authority for Brazil. ANAC has indicated it intends to mandate the maintenance actions in Appendix A, Parts I, II, and IV of EMBRAER 190 MRBR, MRB–1928, Revision 5, dated November 11, 2010; including EMBRAER TR 5–3, dated November 11, 2010; and EMBRAER TR 5–6, dated November 11, 2010, in addition to the TRs referred to by the commenter. These new maintenance actions include certification maintenance requirements (CMRs) and life-limited parts, in addition to the structural inspections from the TRs referred to by the commenter. As we stated previously, we consider that to delay this AD action would be inappropriate, since we have determined that an unsafe condition exists. When ANAC issues mandatory continued airworthiness instructions that encompass all appropriate airworthiness limitations, including the commenter’s recommended action, we might consider additional rulemaking. We have not changed the AD in this regard. Explanation of Changes Made to This AD We have deleted Note 1 to paragraph (g)(1) of the NPRM (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012). Instead, we have added the same information in paragraph (g)(2) of this AD. We also revised the compliance times specified in table 1 to paragraph (g)(1) of this AD to correctly identify the effective date of AD 2010–11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:08 Dec 07, 2012 Jkt 229001 Conclusion We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect about 88 products of U.S. registry. The actions that are required by AD 2010–11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010), 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 1 work-hour 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 $7,480, 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 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, PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 73271 or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: 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); 3. Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska; and 4. 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 http:// 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 (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012), 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. 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 airworthiness directive (AD) 2010–11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010), and adding the following new AD: ■ 2012–23–09 Embraer S.A.: Amendment 39– 17265. Docket No. FAA–2012–0590; Directorate Identifier 2011–NM–112–AD. (a) Effective Date This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective January 14, 2013. E:\FR\FM\10DER1.SGM 10DER1 73272 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 237 / Monday, December 10, 2012 / Rules and Regulations (b) Affected ADs This AD supersedes AD 2010–11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010). changes to the required actions that will ensure the continued operational safety of the airplane. (c) Applicability (1) This AD applies to Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190–100 STD, –100 LR, and –100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190–200 STD, –200 LR, and –200 IGW airplanes; certificated in any category; all serial numbers. (2) This AD requires revisions to certain operator maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections). Compliance with these actions is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas addressed by this AD, the operator may not be able to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request approval of an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) according to paragraph (j)(1) of this AD. The request should include a description of Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 52, Doors; 53, Fuselage; 54, Nacelles/Pylons; 55, Stabilizers; 57, Wings; 71, Powerplant; and 78, Engine Exhaust. (d) Subject (e) Reason This AD was prompted by reports of cracks in some of the structural components of the airplane. We are issuing this AD since failure to inspect these structural components according to the new airworthiness limitation section (ALS) tasks, thresholds, and intervals could prevent a timely detection of fatigue cracking, which if not properly addressed, could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. (f) Compliance You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the actions have already been done. (g) Restated Actions: Revision and Compliance Times This paragraph restates the actions required by paragraph (f) of AD 2010–11–14, Amendment 39–16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010).

Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
for all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, -100 IGW, -200 
STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. That AD currently requires 
revising the maintenance program to incorporate modifications in the 
Airworthiness Limitation Section (ALS) of the EMBRAER ERJ 190 
Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR). This new AD requires revising 
the maintenance program to incorporate modifications in the ALS of the 
EMBRAER ERJ 190 MRBR to include new inspection tasks and their 
respective thresholds and intervals. This AD was prompted by issuance 
of new inspection tasks and their respective thresholds and intervals. 
We are issuing this AD since failure to inspect these structural 
components according to the new ALS tasks, thresholds, and intervals 
could prevent a timely detection of fatigue cracking, which if not 
properly addressed, could result in reduced structural integrity of the 
airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective January 14, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of January 14, 
2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of July 6, 2010 
(75 FR 30277, June 1, 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 6, 2012 (77 FR 
33334), and proposed to supersede AD 2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 
FR 30277, June 1, 2010). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe 
condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

    During the airplane full scale fatigue test, cracks were found 
in some structural components of the airplane. Analysis of these 
cracks resulted in modifications on the Airworthiness Limitation 
Section (ALS) of Embraer ERJ 190 Maintenance Review Board Report 
(MRBR), to include new inspections tasks and its respective 
thresholds and intervals.
    Failure to inspect these structural components, according to the 
new tasks, thresholds and intervals, could prevent a timely 
detection of fatigue cracking. These cracks, if not properly 
addressed, could adversely affect the structural integrity of the 
airplane.
    Since this condition may occur in other airplanes of the same 
type and affects flight safety, a corrective action is required. 
Thus, sufficient reason exists to request compliance with this 
[Ag[ecirc]ncia Nacional de Avia[ccedil][atilde]o Civil (ANAC)] AD in 
the indicated time limit.

    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 have considered the comments received.

Request To Incorporate New and Revised Structural Airworthiness 
Limitations

    Embraer requested that we include EMBRAER Temporary Revision (TR) 
5-5, dated May 24, 2012; and EMBRAER TR 5-7, dated August 12, 2012; to 
Appendix A, Part 2, Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI)--
Structures, of the EMBRAER 190 MRBR, MRB-1928, in the operators'

[[Page 73271]]

maintenance programs. Embraer points out that those TRs include 
additional maintenance tasks that were approved in recent design 
changes, which identify and mitigate potential premature structural 
cracks.
    We disagree. There have been numerous changes to the structural 
inspection requirements intended to identify potential premature cracks 
since the last structural airworthiness limitations (EMBRAER TR 2-5, 
dated December 6, 2007; and EMBRAER TR 2-6, dated February 12, 2008; to 
Appendix A, Part 2, Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI) -
Structures, of the EMBRAER 190 MRBR, MRB-1928 were mandated in FAA AD 
2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010).
    The requested changes would alter the actions currently required by 
this AD, so additional rulemaking would be required. We find that 
delaying this action would be inappropriate in light of the identified 
unsafe condition.
    In addition, we have contacted the ANAC, the aviation authority for 
Brazil. ANAC has indicated it intends to mandate the maintenance 
actions in Appendix A, Parts I, II, and IV of EMBRAER 190 MRBR, MRB-
1928, Revision 5, dated November 11, 2010; including EMBRAER TR 5-3, 
dated November 11, 2010; and EMBRAER TR 5-6, dated November 11, 2010, 
in addition to the TRs referred to by the commenter. These new 
maintenance actions include certification maintenance requirements 
(CMRs) and life-limited parts, in addition to the structural 
inspections from the TRs referred to by the commenter. As we stated 
previously, we consider that to delay this AD action would be 
inappropriate, since we have determined that an unsafe condition 
exists. When ANAC issues mandatory continued airworthiness instructions 
that encompass all appropriate airworthiness limitations, including the 
commenter's recommended action, we might consider additional 
rulemaking. We have not changed the AD in this regard.

Explanation of Changes Made to This AD

    We have deleted Note 1 to paragraph (g)(1) of the NPRM (77 FR 
33334, June 6, 2012). Instead, we have added the same information in 
paragraph (g)(2) of this AD.
    We also revised the compliance times specified in table 1 to 
paragraph (g)(1) of this AD to correctly identify the effective date of 
AD 2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010).

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and 
determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the 
AD with the changes described previously and minor editorial changes. 
We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012) for correcting the unsafe condition; 
and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect about 88 products of U.S. 
registry.
    The actions that are required by AD 2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 
(75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010), 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 1 work-hour 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 $7,480, 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 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 that this AD:
    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);
    3. Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska; and
    4. 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 http://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 (77 FR 33334, June 6, 2012), 
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.

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

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority:  49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing airworthiness directive (AD) 
2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010), and adding 
the following new AD:

2012-23-09 Embraer S.A.: Amendment 39-17265. Docket No. FAA-2012-
0590; Directorate Identifier 2011-NM-112-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective January 14, 
2013.

[[Page 73272]]

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD supersedes AD 2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 FR 
30277, June 1, 2010).

(c) Applicability

    (1) This AD applies to Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 
LR, and -100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and 
-200 IGW airplanes; certificated in any category; all serial 
numbers.
    (2) This AD requires revisions to certain operator maintenance 
documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections). Compliance 
with these actions is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes 
that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the 
areas addressed by this AD, the operator may not be able to 
accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this 
situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must 
request approval of an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) 
according to paragraph (j)(1) of this AD. The request should include 
a description of changes to the required actions that will ensure 
the continued operational safety of the airplane.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 52, Doors; 53, 
Fuselage; 54, Nacelles/Pylons; 55, Stabilizers; 57, Wings; 71, 
Powerplant; and 78, Engine Exhaust.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by reports of cracks in some of the 
structural components of the airplane. We are issuing this AD since 
failure to inspect these structural components according to the new 
airworthiness limitation section (ALS) tasks, thresholds, and 
intervals could prevent a timely detection of fatigue cracking, 
which if not properly addressed, could result in reduced structural 
integrity of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Restated Actions: Revision and Compliance Times

    This paragraph restates the actions required by paragraph (f) of 
AD 2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010).
    (1) Within 90 days after July 6, 2010 (the effective date of AD 
2010-11-14, Amendment 39-16319 (75 FR 30277, June 1, 2010)), revise 
the ALS of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to 
include the tasks specified in table 1 to paragraph (g)(1) of this 
AD. These tasks are identified in EMBRAER Temporary Revision (TR) 2-
5, dated December 6, 2007; and EMBRAER TR 2-6, dated February 12, 
2008; to Appendix A, Part 2, Airworthiness Limitation Inspections 
(ALI) -Structures, of the EMBRAER 190 Maintenance Review Board
