SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the technical agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2012–0168, dated August 31, 2012 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information or ‘‘the (MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Prompted by an accident [involving a fuel tank system explosion in flight] * * * the FAA published Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 88 (http://rgl.faa.gov/ Regulatory_and_Guidance_ Library%5CrgFAR.nsf/0/EEFB3F94451 DC06286256C93004F5E07?OpenDocument), and the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) E:\FR\FM\30DER1.SGM 30DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 250 / Monday, December 30, 2013 / Rules and Regulations published Interim Policy INT/POL/25/12. The design review conducted Airbus to develop Fuel Airworthiness Limitations (FAL) * * * now referenced in Airbus A330 and A340 Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) Part 5 revision 00 (both approved by EASA on 16 November 2011) * * *. Failure to comply with items as identified in Airbus A330 and A340 ALS Part 5 could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the aeroplane. To address this condition, EASA issued: EASA AD 2007–0023 (http:// ad.easa.europa.eu/ad/2007-0023) [which corresponds to FAA AD 2007–14–01, Amendment 39–15123, (72 FR 38006, July 12, 2007)] to require compliance with FAL specified in the Airbus A330 FAL Document reference 95A.1932/05 at Issue 02 (comprising maintenance/inspection tasks and Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL)) for A330 aeroplanes, and EASA AD 2006–0205 (http:// ad.easa.europa.eu/ad/2006-0205) [which also corresponds to FAA AD 2007–14–01, Amendment 39–15123, (72 FR 38006, July 12, 2007)] to require compliance with FAL specified in Airbus A340 FAL Document reference 95A.1933/05 at Issue 01 (comprising maintenance/inspection tasks and Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL)) for Airbus A340 aeroplanes. * * * other EASA ADs required accomplishment of aeroplane modifications related to Fuel Tank Safety items, the requirements and compliance times of which are now integrated into ALS Part 5.

AD 2011– 24–09 (76 FR 73486, November 29, 2011) applied to certain Airbus Model A340–200 and A340–300 series airplanes. This AD applies to all Airbus Model A340–200, A340–300, A340–500, and A340–600 series airplanes. We are considering additional rulemaking to address the Airbus Model A330–200 freighter, A330–200, and A330–300 series airplanes. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Relevant Service Information Airbus has issued A340 Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS), Part 5—Fuel Airworthiness Limitations, dated November 16, 2011; and A340 Variation to revision 00 of ALS Part 5—Fuel Airworthiness Limitations (FAL), dated January 23, 2012 (variation reference 0FVLG110039/ C0S). The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. Related Rulemaking Certain maintenance requirements specified Airbus A340 Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS), Part 5—Fuel Airworthiness Limitations, dated November 16, 2011, are already required by other ADs. Therefore accomplishing the actions required by this AD will terminate the requirements of the following ADs for Model A340 airplanes: • AD 2006–21–08, Amendment 39– 14793 (71 FR 61639, October 19, 2006); • AD 2007–14–01, Amendment 39– 15123 (72 FR 38006, July 12, 2007); • AD 2008–25–02, Amendment 39– 15760 (73 FR 75307, December 11, 2008); • AD 2010–04–09, Amendment 39– 16202 (75 FR 7940, February 23, 2010; as corrected in the Federal Register on March 3, 2010 (75 FR 9515); • AD 2011–01–02, Amendment 39– 16555 (76 FR 432, January 5, 2011); and • AD 2012–16–05, Amendment 39– 17152 (77 FR 48425, August 14, 2012). FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. There are no products of this type currently registered in the United States. However, this rule is necessary to ensure that the described unsafe condition is addressed if any of these products are placed on the U.S. Register in the future. This AD requires revisions to certain operator maintenance documents to 79293 include new actions (e.g., inspections) and Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCLs). Compliance with these actions and CDCCLs is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas addressed by these actions, 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 for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (l)(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. FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date Since there are currently no domestic operators of this product, notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are unnecessary. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2013–1030; Directorate Identifier 2012–NM–193– 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 0 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Cost on U.S. operators Revise maintenance program ......................... 1 work-hour × $85 per hour = $85 ................. $0 $85 $0 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:10 Dec 27, 2013 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\30DER1.SGM 30DER1 79294 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 250 / Monday, December 30, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2011-24-09 
which applied to certain Airbus Model A340-200 and A340-300 series 
airplanes. AD 2011-24-09 requires inspections to verify electrical 
bonding for the water drain system and ventilation intake system, and 
modification if necessary. This new AD requires revising the 
maintenance program to incorporate certain maintenance requirements and 
airworthiness limitations, and adds additional airplanes to the 
applicability. This AD was prompted by a determination that existing 
maintenance requirements are not adequate to address the unsafe 
condition. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential of ignition 
sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel 
vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the 
airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective January 14, 2014.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of January 14, 
2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the technical 
agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2012-0168, dated August 31, 2012 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information or 
``the (MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified 
products. The MCAI states:

    Prompted by an accident [involving a fuel tank system explosion 
in flight] * * * the FAA published Special Federal Aviation 
Regulation (SFAR) 88 (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library%5CrgFAR.nsf/0/EEFB3F94451DC06286256C93004F5E07?OpenDocument), and the Joint 
Aviation Authorities (JAA)

requirements and/or airworthiness limitations as specified in the 
revision 00 of * * * Airbus A340 ALS Part 5.

    This AD also adds new airplanes to the applicability of this AD. AD 
2011-24-09 (76 FR 73486, November 29, 2011) applied to certain Airbus 
Model A340-200 and A340-300 series airplanes. This AD applies to all 
Airbus Model A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series 
airplanes. We are considering additional rulemaking to address the 
Airbus Model A330-200 freighter, A330-200, and A330-300 series 
airplanes. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in 
the AD docket.

Relevant Service Information

    Airbus has issued A340 Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS),

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.
    There are no products of this type currently registered in the 
United States. However, this rule is necessary to ensure that the 
described unsafe condition is addressed if any of these products are 
placed on the U.S. Register in the future.
    This AD requires revisions to certain operator maintenance 
documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections) and Critical 
Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCLs). Compliance with 
these actions and CDCCLs is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes 
that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas 
addressed by these actions, 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 for an 
alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (l)(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.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    Since there are currently no domestic operators of this product, 
notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are 
unnecessary.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public 
comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under 
the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2013-1030; Directorate 
Identifier 2012-NM-193-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.

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.
