The extent to which the program anticipates, controls for, and mitigates risks to consumers; 19 4. The strength and record of the company’s compliance management system relative to the size, nature, and complexity of the company’s consumer business; 5. How effectively and efficiently the program will test for potential improvements to consumer understanding and/or the costeffectiveness of disclosures, and how narrowly the program is tailored to the testing objectives; 6. The extent to which existing data or other evidence indicate that the proposed changes will realize the intended improvements; and 7. The extent to which the company intends to permit public disclosure of test results. In reviewing and approving applications, the Bureau will also take into consideration the scope and nature of programs currently underway as well as the Bureau’s available resources. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES C. Waiver Procedures for Approved Programs When the Bureau approves a waiver, it will provide the company or companies that receive the waiver with the specific terms and conditions of its approval.20 Waivers will require companies to certify, and document or otherwise demonstrate to the Bureau, their compliance with these approved terms and conditions. If a company does not follow the terms and conditions of the waiver, the Bureau may revoke the waiver in whole or in part.21 Waiver terms and conditions will be in writing in an integrated document entitled ‘‘1032(e) Trial Disclosure Waiver: Terms and Conditions.’’ This document will be signed by the Director of the Bureau or by his or her designee, and by an officer of each company approved for a waiver in connection with the program. In addition, the document will: 1. Identify the company or companies that are receiving a waiver; 19 This includes the extent to which a proposal contains reasonable contingency plans for addressing unanticipated consumer harms that arise during the duration of the test. 20 If the Bureau determines not to approve a proposed trial program, it will inform the company of its determination. 21 Before determining to issue a revocation, the Bureau will notify the affected company (or companies) of the grounds for revocation, and permit an opportunity to respond. If the Bureau nonetheless determines that the company failed to follow the terms of the waiver, it may offer an opportunity to correct any such failure before revoking the waiver. If the Bureau revokes or partially revokes a waiver for failure to follow the waiver’s terms, it will do so in writing and it will specify the reason or reasons for its action. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:29 Oct 28, 2013 Jkt 232001 2. Specify the new disclosure(s) or delivery methods to be used by that company or companies under the terms of the waiver; 3. Specify the rules and statutory provisions that the Bureau will waive during the test period for the testing company or companies; 4. Specify the temporary duration of the waiver; 5. Describe and delineate the test population(s); and 6. Specify any other conditions on the effectiveness of the waiver, such as the terms of testing, data sharing, certification of compliance with the terms of the waiver, and/or public disclosure. D. Bureau Disclosure of Information Regarding Trial Programs The Bureau will publish notice on its Web site of any trial disclosure program that it approves for a waiver. The notice will: (i) Identify the company or companies conducting the trial disclosure program; (ii) summarize the changed disclosures to be used, their intended purpose, and the duration of their intended use; (iii) summarize the scope of the waiver and the Bureau’s reasons for granting it; and (iv) state that the waiver only applies to the testing company or companies in accordance with the approved terms of use. Public disclosure of any other information regarding trial programs is governed by the Bureau’s Rule on Disclosure of Records and Information.22 For example, the rule requires the Bureau to make available records requested by the public unless they are subject to a FOIA exemption or exclusion.23 To the extent the Bureau wishes to disclose information regarding trial programs, the terms of such disclosure will be included in the 1032(e) Trial Disclosure Waiver: Terms and Conditions document. Consistent with applicable law and its own rules, the Bureau will not seek to disclose any test data that would conflict with consumers’ privacy interests. Dated: October 23, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On November 29, 2012, we issued AD 2012–24–09, Amendment 39–17279 (77 FR 72203, December 5, 2012), for Lycoming Engines TSIO–540–AK1A, and CMI TSIO–360–MB, TSIO–360–SB, and TSIO–360–RB reciprocating engines, with certain HET turbochargers, model TA0411, part numbers 466642–0001; 466642–0002; 466642–0006; 466642–9001; 466642– 9002; or 466642–9006, or with certain HET model TA0411 turbochargers overhauled or repaired since August 29, 2012. On January 7, 2013, we issued a correction to AD 2012–24–09 (78 FR 2615, January 14, 2013), which corrected the affected Lycoming Engines engine model from ‘‘TSIO–540–AK1A’’ to ‘‘TIO–540–AK1A.’’ AD 2012–24–09 required removing the affected turbochargers from service before further flight. AD 2012–24–09 resulted from a report of a turbocharger turbine wheel that failed a static strength test at the manufacturing facility. We issued AD 2012–24–09 to prevent turbocharger turbine wheel failure, reduction or complete loss of engine power, loss of engine oil, oil fire, and damage to the airplane. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:29 Oct 28, 2013 Jkt 232001 Actions Since AD 2012–24–09 Was Issued Since we issued AD 2012–24–09 (77 FR 72203, December 5, 2012; corrected January 14, 2013 (78 FR 2615)), we received a report that an additional engine, the CMI LTSIO–360–RB, has the affected HET turbochargers installed. FAA’s Determination We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. AD Requirements This AD requires removing the affected turbochargers from service before further flight. FAA’s Justification and Determination of the Effective Date An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because the AD requires removal of the affected turbochargers before further flight. Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not provide you with notice and an opportunity to provide your comments before it becomes effective. However, we invite you to send any written data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA– 2012–1245; Directorate Identifier 2012– NE–41–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 56 engines of U.S. registry with affected turbochargers installed. We also PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 64395 estimate that it will take about 4 hours to remove a turbocharger from service. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the total cost of this AD to U.S. operators to be $19,040. 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 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 DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979), (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent that it justifies making a regulatory distinction, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    On November 29, 2012, we issued AD 2012-24-09, Amendment 39-17279 
(77 FR 72203, December 5, 2012), for Lycoming Engines TSIO-540-AK1A, 
and CMI TSIO-360-MB, TSIO-360-SB, and TSIO-360-RB reciprocating 
engines, with certain HET turbochargers, model TA0411, part numbers 
466642-0001; 466642-0002; 466642-0006; 466642-9001; 466642-9002; or 
466642-9006, or with certain HET model TA0411 turbochargers overhauled 
or repaired since August 29, 2012. On January 7, 2013, we issued a 
correction to AD 2012-24-09 (78 FR 2615, January 14, 2013), which 
corrected the affected Lycoming Engines engine model from ``TSIO-540-
AK1A'' to ``TIO-540-AK1A.'' AD 2012-24-09 required removing the 
affected turbochargers from service before further flight. AD 2012-24-
09 resulted from a report of a turbocharger turbine wheel that failed a 
static strength test at the manufacturing facility. We issued AD 2012-
24-09 to prevent turbocharger turbine wheel failure, reduction or 
complete loss of engine power, loss of engine oil, oil fire, and damage 
to the airplane.

Actions Since AD 2012-24-09 Was Issued

    Since we issued AD 2012-24-09 (77 FR 72203, December 5, 2012; 
corrected January 14, 2013 (78 FR 2615)), we received a report that an 
additional engine, the CMI LTSIO-360-RB, has the affected HET 
turbochargers installed.

FAA's Determination

    We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant 
information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is 
likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design.

AD Requirements

    This AD requires removing the affected turbochargers from service 
before further flight.

FAA's Justification and Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because the 
AD requires removal of the affected turbochargers before further 
flight. Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public 
comment are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this 
amendment effective in less than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not provide you with notice and an opportunity to 
provide your comments before it becomes effective. However, we invite 
you to send any written data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send 
your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include 
``Docket No. FAA-2012-1245; Directorate Identifier 2012-NE-41-AD'' at 
the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the 
overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this 
AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may 
amend this AD because of those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We 
will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive about this AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 56 engines of U.S. registry with 
affected turbochargers installed. We also estimate that it will take 
about 4 hours to remove a turbocharger from service. The average labor 
rate is $85 per hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the total 
cost of this AD to U.S. operators to be $19,040.

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

    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 DOT Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979),
    (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent 
that it justifies making a regulatory distinction, 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.
