The Dodd-Frank Act also repealed the requirement in section 703 of ECOA that the Board establish and operate the CAC 3 and instead required the CFPB to establish a Consumer Advisory Board that would provide the CFPB with the type advice that the CAC formerly provided to the Board.4 Consequently, the Board no longer maintains a CAC, and the Rules of Organization and Procedure of the Consumer Advisory Council are no longer necessary. Accordingly, the Board is repealing its Rules of Organization and Procedure of the Consumer Advisory Council. II. Administrative Procedure Act This rule is not subject to the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553, requiring notice, public participation, and a deferred effective date. The APA’s notice and comment procedures do not apply to rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice, such as the rules adopted by the Board for the operation of the CAC.5 List of Subjects in 12 CFR Part 267 Authority and Issuance For the reasons set forth in the preamble and under the authority of Public Law 111–203, section 1085, the Board removes and reserves 12 CFR part 267. ■ PART 267—[REMOVED AND RESERVED] By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, October 23, 2014.

Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA AD 2014– 0192, dated September 1, 2014 (referred to hereinafter as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: An investigation carried out by RR has identified the risk of Intermediate Pressure (IP) shaft failure that may not be detected and accommodated by the engine control system. An IP shaft failure that is not detected may result in IP turbine overspeed. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to IP turbine burst and consequent release of high energy debris, possibly resulting in damage to, and reduced control of, the aeroplane. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2014– 0705. Relevant Service Information RR has issued Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) No. TRENT 1000 73–AH914, dated July 23, 2014. The ASB describes procedures for removing software earlier than standard MB6.15, and installing a software standard eligible for installation. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of the United Kingdom, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 64505 bilateral agreement with the European Community, EASA has notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all information provided by EASA and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. This AD requires removing EEC software earlier than standard MB6.15, and replacing with a software standard eligible for installation. FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date No domestic operators use this product. Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment are unnecessary and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects no engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 hour per engine to comply with this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. Required parts cost is about $200 per engine. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $0. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety.

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
AD 2014-0192, dated September 1, 2014 (referred to hereinafter as ``the 
MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The 
MCAI states:

    An investigation carried out by RR has identified the risk of 
Intermediate Pressure (IP) shaft failure that may not be detected 
and accommodated by the engine control system. An IP shaft failure 
that is not detected may result in IP turbine overspeed.
    This condition, if not corrected, could lead to IP turbine burst 
and consequent release of high energy debris, possibly resulting in 
damage to, and reduced control of, the aeroplane.

    You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for 
and locating Docket No. FAA-2014-0705.

Relevant Service Information

    RR has issued Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) No. TRENT 1000 73-AH914, 
dated July 23, 2014. The ASB describes procedures for removing software 
earlier than standard MB6.15, and installing a software standard 
eligible for installation.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of the 
United Kingdom, and is approved for operation in the United States. 
Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the European Community, EASA 
has notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and 
service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all information provided by EASA and determined the unsafe 
condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of 
the same type design. This AD requires removing EEC software earlier 
than standard MB6.15, and replacing with a software standard eligible 
for installation.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    No domestic operators use this product. Therefore, we find that 
notice and opportunity for prior public comment are unnecessary and 
that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 
30 days.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects no engines installed on airplanes 
of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 hour per 
engine to comply with this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. 
Required parts cost is about $200 per engine. Based on these figures, 
we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $0.

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

[[Page 64506]]

responsibilities among the various levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify 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 to the extent

Adoption of the Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

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


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

2014-22-02 Rolls-Royce plc: Amendment 39-18006; Docket No. FAA-2014-
0705; Directorate Identifier 2014-NE-13-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective November 14, 2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) Trent 1000-A, 1000-
C, 1000-D, 1000-E, 1000-G, and 1000-H turbofan engines.

(d) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a finding that an intermediate pressure 
(IP) shaft failure may not be detected by engine electronic 
controller (EEC) software earlier than standard MB6.15. We are 
issuing this AD to detect IP shaft failure and prevent IP compressor 
turbine burst, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the 
airplane.

(e) Actions and Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.
    (1) Within 30 days or 180 flight cycles after the effective date 
of this AD, whichever occurs first, remove from the engine any EEC 
software standard earlier than software standard MB6.15.
    (2) Install EEC software eligible for installation.

(f) Installation Prohibition

    After the effective date of this AD, do not install any EEC 
containing a software standard earlier than software standard of 
MB6.15, into any engine.

(g) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs)

    The Manager, Engine Certification Office, FAA, may approve AMOCs 
to this AD. Use the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19 to make your 
request. You may email your request to: ANE-AD-AMOC@faa.gov.
