Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–700–1A11 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that certain lanyards for the passenger oxygen masks are longer than the specified length, possibly leading to inactive oxygen masks in an emergency. This AD requires replacement of certain oxygen mask lanyards. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct lanyards of incorrect length, which might not activate the flow of oxygen in an emergency, resulting in injury to passengers. SUMMARY: This AD becomes effective December 2, 2014. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of December 2, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–700–1A11 airplanes. The SNPRM published in the Federal Register on July 23, 2014 (79 FR 42708). We preceded the SNPRM with a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that published in the Federal Register on July 18, 2013 (78 FR 42893). Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2012–31R1, dated September 17, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD– 700–1A11 airplanes. The MCAI states: asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES The aeroplane manufacturer has determined that the Oxygen Dispensing Unit (ODU) lanyards, in several locations throughout the aeroplane cabin, are excessively long. In an emergency situation where oxygen is required, it is possible that certain occupants may put their oxygen mask on without automatically activating the oxygen flow which could result in a fatal injury. The original issue of this [Canadian] AD mandated the replacement of the existing ODU lanyards with lanyards of the correct length. After the issuance of the original [Canadian] AD, the aeroplane manufacturer discovered that operators had not replaced all of the affected ODU lanyards due to misinterpretation of the accomplishment instructions of the Basic Issue of SB 700– 1A11–35–009. Revision 1 of this [Canadian] AD is issued to mandate the incorporation of the revised SB with clarified accomplishment instructions. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2013-05480004. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the SNPRM VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:44 Oct 27, 2014 Jkt 235001 (79 FR 42708, July 23, 2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the SNPRM (79 FR 42708, July 23, 2014) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the SNPRM (79 FR 42708, July 23, 2014). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 22 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 16 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $0 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $29,920, or $1,360 per product. 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: PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 64093 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to 
amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain 
Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-700-1A11 airplanes. The SNPRM published in 
the Federal Register on July 23, 2014 (79 FR 42708). We preceded the 
SNPRM with a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that published in the 
Federal Register on July 18, 2013 (78 FR 42893).
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2012-31R1, dated September 17, 2013 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-700-
1A11 airplanes. The MCAI states:

    The aeroplane manufacturer has determined that the Oxygen 
Dispensing Unit (ODU) lanyards, in several locations throughout the 
aeroplane cabin, are excessively long. In an emergency situation 
where oxygen is required, it is possible that certain occupants may 
put their oxygen mask on without automatically activating the oxygen 
flow which could result in a fatal injury.
    The original issue of this [Canadian] AD mandated the 
replacement of the existing ODU lanyards with lanyards of the 
correct length.
    After the issuance of the original [Canadian] AD, the aeroplane 
manufacturer discovered that operators had not replaced all of the 
affected ODU lanyards due to misinterpretation of the accomplishment 
instructions of the Basic Issue of SB 700-1A11-35-009. Revision 1 of 
this [Canadian] AD is issued to mandate the incorporation of the 
revised SB with clarified accomplishment instructions.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2013-0548-0004.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the SNPRM (79 FR 42708, July 23, 
2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for 
minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
SNPRM (79 FR 42708, July 23, 2014) for correcting the unsafe condition; 
and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the SNPRM (79 FR 42708, July 23, 2014).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 22 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it will take about 16 work-hours per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $0 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on 
U.S. operators to be $29,920, or $1,360 per product.

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.

    Authority:  49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

    2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new 
airworthiness directive (AD):

2014-21-08 Bombardier, Inc.: Amendment 39-18002. Docket No. FAA-
2013-0548; Directorate Identifier 2013-NM-008-AD.

    This AD becomes effective December 2, 2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-700-1A11 airplanes, 
certificated in any category, modified by FAA Supplemental Type 
Certificate (STC) ST02140NY, issued October 14, 2005 (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgstc.nsf/0/6B8CF26D01F5E6DE862570C7006DCD7E?OpenDocument&Highlight=

st02140ny); and to airplanes, certificated in any category, modified 
by FAA STC ST02033NY, issued December 2, 2004 (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgstc.nsf/0/99FF781E0BD20AD886256FA300558250?OpenDocument&Highlight=02033).

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 35, Oxygen.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report that certain lanyards for the 
passenger oxygen masks are longer than the specified length, 
possibly leading to inactive oxygen masks in an emergency. We are 
issuing this AD to detect and correct lanyards of incorrect length, 
which might not activate the flow of oxygen in an emergency, 
resulting in injury to passengers.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Replacement

    Within 750 flight hours or 15 months after the effective date of 
this AD, whichever occurs first: Replace lanyards having part 
numbers (P/N) B431564-503 and -505 for all passenger oxygen 
dispensing units, with lanyards having P/N B431564-507, in 
accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier 
Service Bulletin 700-1A11-35-009, Revision 02, dated May 28, 2013.
