Comments Invited: Interested persons are invited to submit such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Communications should identify the consensus standard number and be submitted to the address specified above. All standards-related comments received on or before the closing date for comments will be forwarded to ASTM International Committee F39 for consideration. The standard may be changed in light of the comments received. The FAA will address all comments received during the recurring review of the consensus standard and will participate in the consensus standard revision process. Background: Under the provisions of the revised Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–119, ‘‘Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment Activities,’’ dated February 10, 1998, industry and the FAA have been working with ASTM International to develop consensus standards for the design, fabrication, modification, inspection, and maintenance of electrical systems installed on normal and utility category airplanes. These consensus standards satisfy the FAA’s goal for airworthiness certification and a verifiable minimum safety level for normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter category airplanes. The FAA participates as a member of Committee F39 in developing these standards. The use of the consensus standard process assures government and industry discussion and agreement on appropriate standards for the required level of safety.

Consensus Standards, Inspection and Maintenance of Aircraft 
Electrical Wiring Systems

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of availability; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of two revised 
consensus standards relating to inspection and maintenance of aircraft 
electrical wiring systems. ASTM International Committee F39 on Aircraft 
Systems developed the revised standards with Federal Aviation 
Administration (FAA) participation. The consensus standards provide 
acceptable methods and procedures for inspection and maintenance of 
electrical wiring systems for normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter 
category airplanes. By this notice, the FAA finds the revised standards 
as acceptable means of compliance to 14 CFR part 23 sections concerning 
electrical wiring systems.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before January 29, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Mail comments to: Federal Aviation Administration, Small 
Airplane Directorate, Continued Operational Safety, ACE-111, Attention: 
James Brady, Room 301, 901 Locust, Kansas City, Missouri 64106. Specify 
the standard being addressed by ASTM designation and title. Mark all 
comments: Consensus Standards Comments.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Brady, Aerospace Engineer, 
Regulations and Policy Branch (ACE-111), Small Airplane Directorate, 
Aircraft Certification Service, Federal Aviation Administration, 901

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces the availability of 
two revised consensus standards that supersede previously accepted 
consensus standards relating to inspection and maintenance of aircraft 
electrical wiring systems. ASTM International Committee F39 on Aircraft 
Systems developed the revised standards. The FAA expects a suitable 
consensus standard to be reviewed periodically. This review cycle will 
result in a standard revision or reapproval. A standard is revised to 
make changes to its technical content or is reapproved to indicate a 
review cycle

[[Page 78554]]

has been completed with no technical changes. A standard is issued 
under a fixed designation (e.g., F2696); the number immediately 
following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, 
in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in 
parentheses following the year of original adoption or revision 
indicates the year of last reapproval. For example, F2353-05(2013) 
designates a standard that was originally adopted (or revised) in 2005 
and reapproved in 2013. A superscript epsilon ([egr]) indicates an 
editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. A notice of 
availability (NOA) will only be issued for new or revised standards. 
Reapproved standards issued with no technical changes or standards 
issued with editorial changes only (i.e., superscript epsilon ([egr])) 
are considered accepted by the FAA without need for an NOA.
    Comments Invited: Interested persons are invited to submit such 
written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Communications 
should identify the consensus standard number and be submitted to the 
address specified above. All standards-related comments received on or 
before the closing date for comments will be forwarded to ASTM 
International Committee F39 for consideration. The standard may be 
changed in light of the comments received. The FAA will address all 
comments received during the recurring review of the consensus standard 
and will participate in the consensus standard revision process.
    Background: Under the provisions of the revised Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-119, ``Federal Participation in 
the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in 
Conformity Assessment Activities,'' dated February 10, 1998, industry 
and the FAA have been working with ASTM International to develop 
consensus standards for the design, fabrication, modification,

standards. The use of the consensus standard process assures government 
and industry discussion and agreement on appropriate standards for the 
required level of safety.

The Consensus Standards

    The FAA finds the following new consensus standards acceptable for 
normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter category airplanes. The 
consensus standards listed below may be used unless the FAA publishes a 
specific notification otherwise.

of Aircraft Electrical Wiring Systems
