Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule Proposed Parental Consent Method; Imperium, LLC Application for Approval of Parental Consent Method, 56183-56184 [2013-22120]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 177 / Thursday, September 12, 2013 / Proposed Rules Airworthiness to incorporate AWL No. 28–AWL–21, No. 28–AWL–22, and No. 28–AWL–24 (for Model 737–600, –700, –700C, –800, and –900 series airplanes); and No. 28–AWL–23, No. 28–AWL–24, and No. 28–AWL–25 (for Model 757– 200, –200PF, –200CB, and -300 series airplanes). AD 2008–06–03 resulted from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. The proposed actions were intended to prevent an unsafe condition from being introduced on airplanes affected by AD 2008–06–03. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in considering the proposal (77 FR 51722, August 27, 2012) to rescind AD 2008–03–03, Amendment 39–15415 (73 FR 13081, March 12, 2008). The following presents relevant comments received on the proposal and the FAA’s response to those comments. Requests To Clarify ‘‘Different Unsafe Condition’’ FedEx, American Airlines, and Boeing requested clarification of the different unsafe condition introduced by the actions required by AD 2008–06–03, Amendment 39–15415 (73 FR 13081, March 12, 2008). Boeing also stated that the NPRM (77 FR 51722, August 27, 2012) does not indicate if the different unsafe condition is applicable to all actuator locations required by AD 2008– 06–03. We agree that clarification of the different unsafe condition is necessary. AD 2008–06–03, Amendment 39–15415 (73 FR 13081, March 12, 2008), addresses the potential for an electrical current to flow through certain motoroperated shutoff valve actuators into the fuel tank. The new motor-operator valve (MOV) actuators are required by AD 2008–06–03 for three locations on Model 737 airplanes and six or seven locations on Model 757 airplanes (depending on configuration); and that AD addresses an unsafe condition related to Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 (‘‘SFAR 88’’ (66 FR 23086, May 7, 2001), Amendment 21– 78, and subsequent Amendments 21–82 and 21–83). However, the new motor-operated shutoff valve actuators have been found to have a risk of latent failure. At two of the locations on Model 737 airplanes and at three locations on Model 757 airplanes, this actuator failure could result in a different unsafe condition— i.e., an inability to shut off fuel flow to an auxiliary power unit (APU) (on Model 757 airplanes only) or engine during an engine fire. This latent failure is not a safety risk in the other three to four locations. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:29 Sep 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 We have determined that AD 2008– 06–03, Amendment 39–15415 (73 FR 13081, March 12, 2008), should not be rescinded, but should continue to require actions that address SFAR 88related safety. Because AD 2008–06–03 does address a significant safety risk, it is not in the interest of safety to rescind that AD. For the new MOV actuators, we are considering further rulemaking to address the certain locations where a latent failure of the actuator could result in a failure to shut off fuel flow during an engine fire. Request To Extend Compliance Time Allegiant Air supported the proposed rescission (77 FR 62833, August 27, 2012) and requested that, if the FAA decided not to adopt the rescission, the FAA provide an extension of the compliance time required by AD 2008– 06–03, Amendment 39–15415 (73 FR 13081, March 12, 2008), by using a ‘‘global’’ alternative method of compliance (AMOC). Allegiant Air stated that the proposed rescission has brought uncertainty to operators of the affected Model 737 and 757 airplanes. We infer the subject of the uncertainty involves an operator still needing to schedule time to do the required actions prior to the compliance time required in AD 2008–06–03. We disagree. We have not received any AMOC requests to extend the compliance time. We also have not received justification to extend an AMOC to all the airplanes affected by AD 2008–06–03, Amendment 39–15415 (73 FR 13081, March 12, 2008). However, under the provisions of paragraph (i) of AD 2008–06–03, we will consider individual operator requests for approval of an extension of the compliance time if sufficient data are submitted to substantiate that the new compliance time would provide an acceptable level of safety. We have determined that no change to AD 2008– 06–03 is necessary. FAA’s Conclusions Upon further consideration, we have determined that the NPRM (77 FR 51722, August 27, 2012) does not adequately address the safety concern. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn. Withdrawal of the NPRM (77 FR 51722, August 27, 2012) does not preclude the FAA from issuing another related action nor commit the FAA to any course of action in the future. Regulatory Impact Since this action only withdraws an NPRM (77 FR 51722, August 27, 2012), it is neither a proposed nor a final rule and therefore is not covered under PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 56183 Executive Order 12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, or DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979). List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Withdrawal Accordingly, we withdraw the NPRM, Docket No. FAA–2012–0859, Directorate Identifier 2012–NM–090–AD, which was published in the Federal Register on August 27, 2012 (77 FR 51722).

operators to post privacy policies and provide notice, and to obtain 
verifiable parental consent, prior to collecting, using, or disclosing 
personal information from children under the age of 13. The Rule 
enumerates methods for obtaining verifiable parental consent, while 
also allowing an interested party to file a written request for 
Commission approval of parental consent methods not currently

description of the proposed parental consent method, together with an 
analysis of how the method meets the requirements for parental consent 
described in 16 CFR 312.5(b)(1).
