Criteria and Procedures for Assessment of Civil Penalties, 55408-55409 [2014-22000]

Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 55408 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 179 / Tuesday, September 16, 2014 / Proposed Rules the reasons why an extension is needed. Several members of the STIG advised that the proposal is very lengthy and difficult to directly compare with the existing part 60 rule. The FAA emphasizes that the primary reason for its length is due to the proposal to align a portion of the part 60 standards with current international FSTD evaluation guidelines published in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) document 9625 Edition 3, Manual of Criteria for the Qualification of Flight Simulation Training Devices (ICAO 9625, Edition 3). The FAA is proposing to align a portion of the part 60 standards with the ICAO 9625 FSTD evaluation guidance document to be responsive to industry’s historical requests for the FAA to align with the most current international standards. Part of the benefits of international alignment is to reduce the number of differences in regulatory requirements between various National Aviation Authorities by using a common source document. In addition to simply aligning with the basic requirements of the ICAO 9625 document, the FAA found that by aligning with the document’s format, numbering system, and language used in many of the tables, differences between the part 60 standards and ICAO 9625 could potentially be minimized even further going forward. To accomplish this, many of the tables in the Qualification Performance Standards (QPS) appendices of the proposal were completely rewritten as compared to the current part 60 QPS appendices. The FAA concurs with the commenters desire to provide the FAA with meaningful comments and hereby grants the additional 90 days to the comment period as requested. To further assist the commenters in reviewing this proposal, the FAA has prepared and submitted to the docket a summary matrix that better explains where the changes to the tables in the QPS appendices were made relative to the current part 60 rule (Document # FAA–2014–0391–0008 in the electronic docket for this NPRM). The FAA also arranged to place in the docket a readonly non-printable PDF of a portion of ICAO 9625 to be used for reference only. The FAA notes that this document will be removed from the docket at the end of the comment period. With this additional information, the FAA finds that providing an additional 90 days is sufficient for these commenters to summary of FAA’s participation in that meeting has been posted to the electronic docket for this NPRM. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 Sep 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 analyze the NPRM and provide meaningful comment. Absent unusual circumstances, the FAA does not anticipate any further extension of the comment period for this rulemaking. Extension of Comment Period In accordance with § 11.47(c) of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the comments requesting an extension of the comment period for Notice No. 2014–04 and has determined that extension of the comment period is consistent with the public interest, and that good cause exists for taking this action. Accordingly, the comment period for Notice No. 2014–04 is extended until January 6, 2015. Additional Information A. Comments Invited The FAA invites interested persons to participate in this rulemaking by submitting written comments, data, or views. The agency also invites comments relating to the economic, environmental, energy, or federalism impacts that might result from adopting the proposals in this document. The most helpful comments reference a specific portion of the proposal, explain the reason for any recommended change, and include supporting data. To ensure the docket does not contain duplicate comments, commenters should send only one copy of written comments, or if comments are filed electronically, commenters should submit only one time. The FAA will file in the docket all comments it receives, as well as a report summarizing each substantive public contact with FAA personnel concerning this proposed rulemaking. Before acting on this proposal, the FAA will consider all comments it receives on or before the closing date for comments. The FAA will consider comments filed after the comment period has closed if it is possible to do so without incurring expense or delay. The agency may change this proposal in light of the comments it receives. Proprietary or Confidential Business Information: Do not file proprietary or confidential business information in the docket. Such information must be sent or delivered directly to the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this document, and marked as proprietary or confidential.
