Tribal participation is voluntary. Tribes may express interest in participating in the advance notifications and may discontinue their participation at any time. Currently, 27 Tribes have expressed interest in receiving the advance notifications. Tribes meeting the criteria may receive advance notifications after certifying that the Safeguards Information associated with the shipments of these materials will be adequately protected by complying with the requirements in 10 CFR 73.21 and 73.22. After the NRC receives this certification and the contact information for the Tribal official or Tribal official’s designee, the NRC will add the Tribe to the list of advance notification contacts and the Tribal reservation information to the interactive map of Tribal boundaries at http://www.nrc.gov/ about-nrc/state-tribal/tribal-advancenotification.html. Current contact information can also be accessed throughout the year at http://nrcstp.ornl.gov/special/designee.pdf. The list is published annually in the Federal Register on or about June 30 to reflect any changes in information. Licensees should check these sites to determine whether they need to provide advance notification when they have any shipments meeting the criteria in 10 CFR 71.97 or 73.37 that will pass within or across a participating Tribe’s reservation.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Engine Alliance GP7270 and GP7277 turbofan engines. This AD was prompted by damage to the highpressure compressor (HPC) stage 7–9 spool caused by failure of the baffle plate feature on affected HPC stage 6 disks. This AD requires initial and repetitive borescope inspections of the baffle plate feature and removal from service of the HPC stage 6 disk if the plate is missing material. This AD also requires mandatory removal from service of these HPC stage 6 disks at the next HPC module exposure. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the HPC stage 7–9 spool, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective July 19, 2013. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 20, 2010, the FAA published Special Condition No. 23-245-
SC for the Cirrus Design Corporation new model SF50. The model SF50 is 
a 7-seat (5 adults and 2 children), pressurized, retractable gear, 
carbon composite, airplane with one turbofan engine mounted partially 
in the upper aft fuselage.
    The single turbofan engine is mounted on the upper aft fuselage, 
not in the pilot's line of site. Upper aft fuselage mounted engine 
installations, along with the need to protect such installed engines 
from fires, were not envisioned in the development of the part 23 
normal category regulations.
    The model SF50 certification project was granted an extension on 
September 19, 2011. Amendment 23-62 (76 FR 75736), published December 
2, 2011, incorporated Special Condition No. 23-245-SC. On December 11, 
2012, Cirrus Design Corporation elected to adjust the model SF50 
certification basis to 14 CFR part 23, Amendment 62.

Reason for Withdrawal

    The FAA is withdrawing Special Condition No. 23-245-SC because 
Cirrus elected to revise the model SF50 certification basis to 
Amendment 23-62.
    The authority citation for this Special Condition withdrawal is 49 
U.S.C. 106(g), 40113 and 44701; 14 CFR 21.16 and 21.17; and 14 CFR 
11.38 and 11.19.

Conclusion

    Withdrawal of this special condition does not preclude the FAA from 
issuing another notice on the subject matter in the future or 
committing the agency to any future course of action.

    Issued in Kansas City, Missouri on June 5, 2013.
