ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2013–14– 08 that applies to all Austro Engine GmbH model E4 engines. AD 2013–14– 08 requires removing from service certain part number (P/N) waste gate controllers. Since we issued AD 2013– 14–08 we received several reports of power loss events due to fracture of the waste gate controller lever. This proposed AD would require removing certain P/N waste gate controllers from service. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the waste gate controller lever, which could lead to damage to one or more engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Comments Invited We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2013–0164; Directorate Identifier 2013–NE–10–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this proposed 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 proposed AD. Discussion On July 10, 2013, we issued AD 2013– 14–08, Amendment 39–17513 (78 FR 42677, July 17, 2013), (‘‘AD 2013–14– 08’’), for all Austro Engine GmbH model E4 engines. AD 2013–14–08 requires removing from service certain P/N waste gate controllers. AD 2013–14–08 resulted from several reports of power loss events due to fracture of the waste gate controller lever. We issued AD VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:33 Jan 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 2013–14–08 to prevent failure of the waste gate controller lever, which could lead to damage to one or more engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane. Actions Since AD 2013–14–08 Was Issued Since we issued AD 2013–14–08, we received notification of additional waste gate controller P/Ns that require removal from service. Also since we issued AD 2013–14–08, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued AD 2013–0213, dated September 13, 2013, which requires removal and replacement of affected waste gate controllers. We also changed the unsafe condition statement in AD 2013–14–08 to clarify the relationship between the unsafe condition and the engine. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Austro Engine Mandatory Service Bulletin (MSB) No. MSB–E4–007/6, Revision 6, dated September 18, 2013. The service information describes procedures for removal and installation of the waste gate controllers. FAA’s Determination We are proposing 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. Proposed AD Requirements This proposed AD would retain all of the requirements of AD 2013–14–08. This proposed AD would expand the applicability by adding additional P/Ns of affected waste gate controllers. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 128 engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 0.5 hours per engine to comply with this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. Required parts cost about $231 per engine. Based on these figures, we estimate the total cost of this proposed AD to U.S. operators to be $35,008. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 1775 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 proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 the proposed regulation: (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 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.

ACTION: Notice of Intent. AGENCY: The Deputy Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is issuing this notice of intent to temporarily schedule four synthetic cannabinoids into Schedule I pursuant to the temporary scheduling provisions of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The substances are: quinolin-8-yl 1pentyl-1H-indole-3-carboxylate (PB–22; QUPIC); quinolin-8-yl 1-(5fluoropentyl)-1H-indole-3-carboxylate (5-fluoro-PB–22; 5F–PB–22); N-(1amino-3-methyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)-1-(4fluorobenzyl)-1H-indazole-3carboxamide (AB–FUBINACA); and N(1-amino-3,3-dimethyl-1-oxobutan-2-yl)1-pentyl-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide (ADB–PINACA). This action is based on a finding by the Deputy Administrator that the placement of these synthetic cannabinoids into Schedule I of the CSA is necessary to avoid an imminent hazard to the public safety. Any final order will impose the administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions and regulatory controls applicable to Schedule I substances under the CSA on the manufacture, distribution, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 possession, importation, exportation, research, and conduct of instructional activities of these synthetic cannabinoids.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Any final order will be published in the Federal Register and may not be effective prior to February 10, 2014. Background Section 201 of the CSA, 21 U.S.C. 811, provides the Attorney General with the authority to temporarily place a substance into Schedule I of the CSA for two years without regard to the requirements of 21 U.S.C. 811(b) if he finds that such action is necessary to avoid imminent hazard to the public safety. 21 U.S.C. 811(h). In addition, if proceedings to control a substance are initiated under 21 U.S.C. 811(a)(1), the Attorney General may extend the temporary scheduling for up to one year. 21 U.S.C. 811(h)(2). Where the necessary findings are made, a substance may be temporarily scheduled if it is not listed in any other schedule under section 202 of the CSA, 21 U.S.C. 812, or if there is no exemption or approval in effect for the substance under section 505 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), 21 U.S.C. 355. 21 U.S.C. 811(h)(1); 21 CFR part 1308. The Attorney General has delegated his authority under 21 U.S.C. 811 to the Administrator of the DEA, who in turn has delegated her authority to the Deputy Administrator of the DEA. 28 CFR 0.100, 0.104, Appendix to Subpart R of Part 0, Sec. 12. Section 201(h)(4) of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 811(h)(4)) requires the Deputy Administrator to notify the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of his intention to temporarily place a substance into Schedule I of the CSA.1 As PB–22, 5F– 1 Because the Secretary of the HHS has delegated to the Assistant Secretary for Health of the HHS the authority to make domestic drug scheduling recommendations, for purposes of this Notice of Intent, all subsequent references to ‘‘Secretary’’ have been replaced with ‘‘Assistant Secretary.’’ As set forth in a memorandum of understanding entered into by HHS, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), FDA acts as the lead agency within HHS in carrying out the Assistant Secretary’s scheduling responsibilities under the CSA, with the concurrence of NIDA. 50 FR 9518, Mar. 8, 1985.

Airworthiness Directives; Austro Engine GmbH Engines

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2013-14-
08 that applies to all Austro Engine GmbH model E4 engines. AD 2013-14-
08 requires removing from service certain part number (P/N) waste gate 
controllers. Since we issued AD 2013-14-08 we received several reports 
of power loss events due to fracture of the waste gate controller 
lever. This proposed AD would require removing certain P/N waste gate 
controllers from service. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure 
of the waste gate controller lever, which could lead to damage to one 
or more engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by March 11, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address 
listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2013-0164; 
Directorate Identifier 2013-NE-10-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We 
will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend 
this proposed 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 proposed AD.

Discussion

    On July 10, 2013, we issued AD 2013-14-08, Amendment 39-17513 (78 
FR 42677, July 17, 2013), (``AD 2013-14-08''), for all Austro Engine 
GmbH model E4 engines. AD 2013-14-08 requires removing from service 
certain P/N waste gate controllers. AD 2013-14-08 resulted from several 
reports of power loss events due to fracture of the waste gate 
controller lever. We issued AD 2013-14-08 to prevent failure of the 
waste gate controller lever, which could lead to damage to one or more 
engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.

Actions Since AD 2013-14-08 Was Issued

    Since we issued AD 2013-14-08, we received notification of 
additional waste gate controller P/Ns that require removal from 
service. Also since we issued AD 2013-14-08, the European Aviation 
Safety Agency (EASA) has issued AD 2013-0213, dated September 13, 2013, 
which requires removal and replacement of affected waste gate 
controllers. We also changed the unsafe condition statement in AD 2013-
14-08 to clarify the relationship between the unsafe condition and the 
engine.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Austro Engine Mandatory Service Bulletin (MSB) No. MSB-
E4-007/6, Revision 6, dated September 18, 2013. The service information 
describes procedures for removal and installation of the waste gate 
controllers.

FAA's Determination

    We are proposing 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.

Proposed AD Requirements

    This proposed AD would retain all of the requirements of AD 2013-
14-08. This proposed AD would expand the applicability by adding 
additional P/Ns of affected waste gate controllers.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 128 engines 
installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would 
take about 0.5 hours per engine to comply with this proposed AD. The 
average labor rate is $85 per hour. Required parts cost about $231 per 
engine. Based on these figures, we estimate the total cost of this 
proposed AD to U.S. operators to be $35,008.

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 proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 the proposed 
regulation:
    (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 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.
