Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 52 / Tuesday, March 18, 2014 / Proposed Rules the benchmark unit sales estimate for 2013 to be 5,495,000 units. The NEMAprovided shipment data reported shipments of 6,237,000 rough service lamps in 2013. As this finding exceeds the estimate by only 13.5 percent, DOE will continue to track rough service lamp sales data and will not initiate regulatory action for this lamp type at this time. B. Vibration Service Lamps For vibration service lamps, the exponential growth forecast projected the benchmark unit sales estimate for 2013 to be 2,871,000 units. The NEMAprovided shipment data reported shipments of 1,407,000 vibration service lamps in 2013. As this finding is only 49.0 percent of the estimate, DOE will continue to track vibration service lamp sales data and will not initiate regulatory action for this lamp type at this time. C. Three-Way Incandescent Lamps For 3-way incandescent lamps, the exponential growth forecast projected the benchmark unit sales estimate for 2013 to be 49,617,000 units. The NEMAprovided shipment data reported shipments of 34,773,000 3-way incandescent lamps in 2013. As this finding is only 70.1 percent of the estimate, DOE will continue to track 3way incandescent lamp sales data and will not initiate regulatory action for this lamp type at this time. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS D. 2,601–3,300 Lumen General Service Incandescent Lamps For 2,601–3,300 lumen general service incandescent lamps, the exponential growth forecast projected the benchmark unit sales estimate for 2013 to be 34,044,000 units. The NEMAprovided shipment data reported shipments of 9,296,000 2,601–3,300 lumen general service incandescent lamps in 2013. As this finding is 27.3 percent of the estimate, DOE will continue to track 2,601–3,300 lumen general service incandescent lamp sales data and will not initiate regulatory action for this lamp type at this time. E. Shatter-Resistant Lamps For shatter-resistant lamps, the exponential growth forecast projected the benchmark unit sales estimate for 2013 to be 1,667,000 units. The NEMAprovided shipment data reported shipments of 1,093,000 shatter-resistant lamps in 2013. As this finding is only 65.6 percent of the estimate, DOE will continue to track shatter-resistant lamp sales data and will not initiate regulatory action for this lamp type at this time. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:26 Mar 17, 2014 Jkt 232001 V. Conclusion None of the shipments for rough service lamps, vibration service lamps, 3-way incandescent lamps, 2,601–3,300 lumen general service incandescent lamps, or shatter-resistant lamps crossed the statutory threshold for a standard. DOE will continue to monitor these five currently exempted lamp types and will assess 2014 sales by March 31, 2015, in order to determine whether an energy conservation standards rulemaking is required, consistent with 42 U.S.C. 6295(l)(4)(D)–(H).

ACTION: Notice of proposed special conditions. AGENCY: This action proposes special conditions for the Extra EA–300/LC airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature(s) associated with static stability. This airplane can perform at the highest level of aerobatic competition. To be competitive, the aircraft was designed with positive and, at some points, neutral stability within its flight envelope. Its lateral and directional axes are also decoupled from each other providing more precise maneuvering. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for these design features. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards to EA–300/LC airplanes certified solely in the acrobatic category.
