[FR Doc. 2013–11903 Filed 5–23–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2012–0855; Directorate Identifier 2011–NM–136–AD; Amendment 39–17452; AD 2013–09–10] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737– 100, –200, –200C, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitive inspections to detect cracking of the lower corners of the door frame and cross beam of the forward cargo door, and corrective actions if necessary. That AD also requires eventual modification of the outboard radius of the lower corners of the door frame and reinforcement of the cross beam of the forward cargo door, which terminates the existing repetitive inspections. This new AD revises the compliance times for the preventive modification; adds certain inspections for cracks in the number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door; and adds inspections of the number 4 cross beam if cracks are found in the number 5 cross beam, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, this SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1 31390 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 101 / Friday, May 24, 2013 / Rules and Regulations mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES new AD also adds a one-time inspection for airplanes previously modified or repaired, and a one-time inspection of the reinforcement angle for excessive shimming or fastener pull-up, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by additional reports of fatigue cracking in the radius of the lower frames and in the lower number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door. We are issuing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the lower corners of the door frame and number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door, which could result in rapid depressurization of the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective June 28, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of June 28, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain other publications listed in this AD as of May 16, 2000 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000).

VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 May 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000). That AD applies to the specified products. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on August 21, 2012 (77 FR 50407). The NPRM proposed to continue to require repetitive inspections to detect cracking of the lower corners of the door frame and cross beam of the forward cargo door, and corrective actions if necessary. The NPRM also proposed to continue to require eventual modification of the outboard radius of the lower corners of the door frame and reinforcement of the cross beam of the forward cargo door, which would constitute terminating action for the existing repetitive inspections. Additionally, the NPRM proposed to revise the compliance times for the preventive modification; add certain inspections for cracks in the number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door; and add inspections of the number 4 cross beam if cracks are found in the number 5 cross beam, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, the NPRM also proposed to add a one-time inspection for airplanes previously modified or repaired, and a one-time inspection of the reinforcement angle for excessive shimming or fastener pull-up, and corrective actions if necessary. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following presents the comments received on the proposal (77 FR 50407, August 21, 2012) and the FAA’s response to each comment. Comment Regarding Winglet Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) Aviation Partners Boeing stated that installation of winglets per STC ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa.gov/ regulatory_and_guidance_library/rgstc. nsf/0/2C6E3DBDDD36F91C862576 A4005D64E2?OpenDocument& Highlight=st01219se) does not affect the ability to accomplish the service information or the NPRM (77 FR 50407, August 21, 2012). We have revised paragraph (c) in this final rule, by adding new paragraph (c)(2), to state that installation of STC ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa.gov/ regulatory_and_guidance_library/ rgstc.nsf/0/2C6E3DBDDD36F9 1C862576A4005D64E2?Open Document&Highlight=st01219se) does PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is installed, a ‘‘change in product’’ AMOC approval request is not necessary to comply with the requirements of 14 CFR 39.17. For all other AMOC requests, however, the operator must request approval for an AMOC in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (n) of this AD. Request To Add New Requirements Boeing asked that we add a new paragraph (k) to the NPRM (77 FR 50407, August 21, 2012) titled ‘‘New Inspections and Corrective Actions to Ensure Cross Beam Reinforcement,’’ and suggested language for that new requirement. Boeing stated that the intent of the NPRM and Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737–52A1100, Revision 5, dated February 14, 2011, is to ensure that all forward cargo doors have the reinforcing modifications installed on both the beam and the frame at the forward and aft lower corners of the door. Boeing added that the current language in the NPRM and this service information leave open the potential that some doors might not have the reinforcing modification on the aft end of the cross beam, even though the doors were modified as specified in Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52–1100, dated August 25, 1988, or Revision 1, dated July 20, 1989; or in accordance with the requirements of AD 90–06–02, Amendment 39–6489 (55 FR 8372, March 7, 1990). We do not agree with the commenter’s request to add a new requirement to this AD. Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52– 1100, dated August 25, 1988; and Revision 1, dated July 20, 1989; includes modifications of the forward corner of the door frame and forward end of the lower cross beam, but no modifications of the aft end of the door. Modifications of the aft corner of the door frame and aft end of the lower cross beam were added in Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52–1100, Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994. Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52–1100, Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994, was required by paragraph (c) of AD 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), as terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Paragraph (c) of AD 2000–07–06 is restated in paragraph (i) of this AD, and addresses airplanes on which no modification was accomplished previously. The intent of paragraph (d) of AD 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), which is restated in paragraph (j) of this AD, was to address airplanes on which a E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1 31391 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 101 / Friday, May 24, 2013 / Rules and Regulations modification was previously accomplished in accordance with Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52–1100, dated August 25, 1988; or Revision 1, dated July 20, 1989; and to ensure that both the forward and aft ends of the lower beam of the door were modified, as well as the forward and aft corners of the door frame. Therefore, Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52–1100, Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994, was required by AD 2000–07–06 for those modifications. However, paragraph (d) of AD 2000–07–06 and paragraph (j) of this AD do not specify modifying the aft end of the lower beam. We have made no change to the AD in regard to Boeing’s request. However, we are considering proposing additional rulemaking in the near future to address this issue. Explanation of Change to Final Rule We have changed paragraph (g) of this final rule to specify performing the inspection in accordance with Boeing 737 Nondestructive Test (NDT) Manual, D6–37239, Part 6, Section 51–00–00, Procedure 4 or Procedure 23, Revision 108, dated November 15, 2012, as applicable. The subject procedures were referred to as figures in the NPRM (77 FR 50407, August 21, 2012). Because of a publishing system change in this revision of the NDT manual, the term ‘‘figure’’ was changed to ‘‘procedure.’’ The technical instructions in the NDT manual were not changed. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the change described previously. We also determined that this change will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of the AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 581 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Inspections retained from AD 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000). Modification retained from AD 2000–07–06. Inspections, new action .......... We estimate the following costs to do any necessary modifications that would $85 per inspection cycle ........ $49,385 per inspection cycle. $1,865 $3,395 .................................... $1,972,495. $0 18 work-hours × $85 per hour = $1,530. 9 work-hours × $85 per hour = $765. Cost on U.S. operators $0 1 work-hour × $85 per hour = $85 per inspection cycle. Cost per product $765 ....................................... $444,465. Parts cost be required based on the results of the inspections. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need these modifications: ON-CONDITION COSTS Action Labor cost Modification ................................................................... 84 work-hours × $85 per hour = $7,140 ...................... We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for the on-condition repairs/ replacements specified in this AD. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 May 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 have 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), PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Parts cost $12,395 Cost per product $19,535 (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. 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: ■ E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1 31392 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 101 / Friday, May 24, 2013 / Rules and Regulations Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by removing airworthiness directive (AD) 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), and adding the following new AD: ■ 2013–09–10 The Boeing Company: Amendment 39–17452; Docket No. FAA–2012–0855; Directorate Identifier 2011–NM–136–AD. (a) Effective Date This AD is effective June 28, 2013. (b) Affected ADs This AD supersedes AD 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000). (c) Applicability (1) This AD applies to all The Boeing Company Model 737–100, –200, –200C, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes, certificated in any category. (2) Installation of Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa. gov/regulatory_and_guidance_library/rgstc .nsf/0/2C6E3DBDDD36F91C862576A40 05D64E2?OpenDocument&Highlight= st01219se) does not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is installed, a ‘‘change in product’’ alternative method of compliance (AMOC) approval request is not necessary to comply with the requirements of 14 CFR 39.17. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/ Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 52, Doors. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by additional reports of fatigue cracking in the radius of the lower frames and in the lower number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door. We are issuing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the lower corners of the door frame and number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door, which could result in rapid depressurization of the airplane. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Retained High Frequency Eddy Current (HFEC) Initial/Repetitive Inspections This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (a) of AD 2000–07–06, Amendment 39–11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), with revised service information. Within 1 year or 4,500 flight cycles after May 16, 2000 (the effective date of AD 2000–07– 06), whichever occurs later, perform an HFEC inspection to detect cracking of the lower corners (forward and aft) of the door frame of the forward cargo door, in accordance with Figure 4 or Figure 23, of Section 51–00–00, of Part 6, of Boeing 737 Nondestructive Test (NDT) Manual, D6–37239, dated August 5, VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 May 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 1997, as applicable; or Procedure 4 or Procedure 23, of Section 51–00–00, of Part 6, of Boeing 737 Nondestructive Test (NDT) Manual, D6–37239, Revision 108, dated November 15, 2012; as applicable. Note 1 to paragraphs (g), (h), (i), and (j) of this AD: Accomplishment of Boeing Service Bulletin 737–52–1100, Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994, does not supersede the requirements of AD 90–06–02, Amendment 39–6489 (55 FR 8372, March 7, 1990). (1) If no cracking is detected, repeat the HFEC inspection thereafter at intervals not to exceed 4,500 flight cycles, until the requirements of paragraph (i) of this AD have been accomplished. (2) If any cracking is detected during any inspection required by paragraph (g) of this AD, prior to further flight, accomplish the requirements of paragraphs (g)(2)(i) and (g)(2)(ii) of this AD, which constitute terminating action for the repetitive inspections required by paragraph (g)(1) of this AD.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and 
-500 series airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitive 
inspections to detect cracking of the lower corners of the door frame 
and cross beam of the forward cargo door, and corrective actions if 
necessary. That AD also requires eventual modification of the outboard 
radius of the lower corners of the door frame and reinforcement of the 
cross beam of the forward cargo door, which terminates the existing 
repetitive inspections. This new AD revises the compliance times for 
the preventive modification; adds certain inspections for cracks in the 
number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door; and adds inspections of 
the number 4 cross beam if cracks are found in the number 5 cross beam, 
and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, this

[[Page 31390]]

new AD also adds a one-time inspection for airplanes previously 
modified or repaired, and a one-time inspection of the reinforcement 
angle for excessive shimming or fastener pull-up, and corrective 
actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by additional reports of 
fatigue cracking in the radius of the lower frames and in the lower 
number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door. We are issuing this AD 
to prevent fatigue cracking of the lower corners of the door frame and 
number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo door, which could result in 
rapid depressurization of the airplane.

DATES: This AD is effective June 28, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of June 28, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain other publications listed in this AD as of May 16,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2000-07-06, Amendment 
39-11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000). That AD applies to the 
specified products. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on 
August 21, 2012 (77 FR 50407). The NPRM proposed to continue to require 
repetitive inspections to detect cracking of the lower corners of the 
door frame and cross beam of the forward cargo door, and corrective 
actions if necessary. The NPRM also proposed to continue to require 
eventual modification of the outboard radius of the lower corners of 
the door frame and reinforcement of the cross beam of the forward cargo 
door, which would constitute terminating action for the existing 
repetitive inspections. Additionally, the NPRM proposed to revise the 
compliance times for the preventive modification; add certain 
inspections for cracks in the number 5 cross beam of the forward cargo 
door; and add inspections of the number 4 cross beam if cracks are 
found in the number 5 cross beam, and corrective actions if necessary. 
For certain airplanes, the NPRM also proposed to add a one-time 
inspection for airplanes previously modified or repaired, and a one-
time inspection of the reinforcement angle for excessive shimming or 
fastener pull-up, and corrective actions if necessary.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. The following presents the comments received on the proposal 
(77 FR 50407, August 21, 2012) and the FAA's response to each comment.

Comment Regarding Winglet Supplemental Type Certificate (STC)

    Aviation Partners Boeing stated that installation of winglets per 
STC ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa.gov/regulatory_and_guidance_library/rgstc.nsf/0/2C6E3DBDDD36F91C862576A4005D64E2?OpenDocument&Highlight=st01219se) does 
not affect the ability to accomplish the service information or the 
NPRM (77 FR 50407, August 21, 2012).
    We have revised paragraph (c) in this final rule, by adding new 
paragraph (c)(2), to state that installation of STC ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa.gov/regulatory_and_guidance_library/rgstc.nsf/0/2C6E3DBDDD36F91C862576A4005D64E2?OpenDocument&Highlight=st01219se) does 
not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. 
Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is installed, a 
``change in product'' AMOC approval request is not necessary to comply 
with the requirements of 14 CFR 39.17. For all other AMOC requests, 
however, the operator must request approval for an AMOC in accordance 
with the procedures specified in paragraph (n) of this AD.

Request To Add New Requirements

    Boeing asked that we add a new paragraph (k) to the NPRM (77 FR 
50407, August 21, 2012) titled ``New Inspections and Corrective Actions 
to Ensure Cross Beam Reinforcement,'' and suggested language for that 
new requirement. Boeing stated that the intent of the NPRM and Boeing 
Alert Service Bulletin 737-52A1100, Revision 5, dated February 14, 
2011, is to ensure that all forward cargo doors have the reinforcing 
modifications installed on both the beam and the frame at the forward 
and aft lower corners of the door. Boeing added that the current 
language in the NPRM and this service information leave open the 
potential that some doors might not have the reinforcing modification 
on the aft end of the cross beam, even though the doors were modified 
as specified in Boeing Service Bulletin 737-52-1100, dated August 25, 
1988, or Revision 1, dated July 20, 1989; or in accordance with the 
requirements of AD 90-06-02, Amendment 39-6489 (55 FR 8372, March 7, 
1990).
    We do not agree with the commenter's request to add a new 
requirement to this AD. Boeing Service Bulletin 737-52-1100, dated 
August 25, 1988; and Revision 1, dated July 20, 1989; includes 
modifications of the forward corner of the door frame and forward end 
of the lower cross beam, but no modifications of the aft end of the 
door. Modifications of the aft corner of the door frame and aft end of 
the lower cross beam were added in Boeing Service Bulletin 737-52-1100, 
Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994. Boeing Service Bulletin 737-52-1100, 
Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994, was required by paragraph (c) of AD 
2000-07-06, Amendment 39-11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), as 
terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Paragraph (c) of AD 
2000-07-06 is restated in paragraph (i) of this AD, and addresses 
airplanes on which no modification was accomplished previously.
    The intent of paragraph (d) of AD 2000-07-06, Amendment 39-11660 
(65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), which is restated in paragraph (j) of 
this AD, was to address airplanes on which a

[[Page 31391]]

modification was previously accomplished in accordance with Boeing 
Service Bulletin 737-52-1100, dated August 25, 1988; or Revision 1, 
dated July 20, 1989; and to ensure that both the forward and aft ends 
of the lower beam of the door were modified, as well as the forward and 
aft corners of the door frame. Therefore, Boeing Service Bulletin 737-
52-1100, Revision 2, dated March 31, 1994, was required by AD 2000-07-
06 for those modifications. However, paragraph (d) of AD 2000-07-06 and 
paragraph (j) of this AD do not specify modifying the aft end of the 
lower beam.
    We have made no change to the AD in regard to Boeing's request. 
However, we are considering proposing additional rulemaking in the near 
future to address this issue.

Explanation of Change to Final Rule

    We have changed paragraph (g) of this final rule to specify 
performing the inspection in accordance with Boeing 737 Nondestructive 
Test (NDT) Manual, D6-37239, Part 6, Section 51-00-00, Procedure 4 or 
Procedure 23, Revision 108, dated November 15, 2012, as applicable. The 
subject procedures were referred to as figures in the NPRM (77 FR 
50407, August 21, 2012). Because of a publishing system change in this 
revision of the NDT manual, the term ``figure'' was changed to 
``procedure.'' The technical instructions in the NDT manual were not 
changed.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, 
and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting 
the AD with the change described previously. We also determined that 
this change will not increase the economic burden on any operator or 
increase the scope of the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 581 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

    We estimate the following costs to do any necessary modifications 
that would be required based on the results of the inspections. We have 
no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need these 
modifications:

    We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide 
cost estimates for the on-condition repairs/replacements specified in 
this AD.

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 have 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.

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

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


[[Page 31392]]


    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) 
2000-07-06, Amendment 39-11660 (65 FR 19302, April 11, 2000), and 
adding the following new AD:

2013-09-10 The Boeing Company: Amendment 39-17452; Docket No. FAA-
2012-0855; Directorate Identifier 2011-NM-136-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective June 28, 2013.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD supersedes AD 2000-07-06, Amendment 39-11660 (65 FR 
19302, April 11, 2000).

(c) Applicability

    (1) This AD applies to all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -
200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes, certificated in 
any category.
    (2) Installation of Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) 
ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa.gov/regulatory_and_guidance_library/rgstc.nsf/0/2C6E3DBDDD36F91C862576A4005D64E2?OpenDocument&Highlight=st01219se) 
does not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by 
this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is 
installed, a ``change in product'' alternative method of compliance 
(AMOC) approval request is not necessary to comply with the 
requirements of 14 CFR 39.17.

(d) Subject

    Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/Air Transport Association 
(ATA) of America Code 52, Doors.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by additional reports of fatigue cracking 
in the radius of the lower frames and in the lower number 5 cross 
beam of the forward cargo door. We are issuing this AD to prevent 
fatigue cracking of the lower corners of the door frame and number 5 
cross beam of the forward cargo door, which could result in rapid 
depressurization of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Retained High Frequency Eddy Current (HFEC) Initial/Repetitive 
Inspections

    This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (a) of AD
