Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-30132
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, and 747SR series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a cracked reveal made from a casting found within a group of airplanes that should have machined reveals made only from 6061 aluminum. This AD requires an inspection to determine the material of the number 3 main entry door (MED) corner reveal, repetitive inspections of certain reveals for cracking, and corrective action if necessary. This AD also requires repetitive inspections for cracking of 6061 machined aluminum one-piece corner reveals, and replacement with 6061 machined aluminum two-piece corner reveals if necessary, which terminates certain repetitive inspections. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the lower forward corner reveal of the number 3 MEDs, which could lead to the door escape slide departing the airplane when the door is opened and the slide is deployed, and consequent injuries to passengers and crew using the door escape slide during an emergency evacuation.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-30131
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 97-11-07 and AD 99-18-23, which apply to all The Boeing Company Model MD-90-30 airplanes. AD 97-11-07 and AD 99-18-23 required revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate certain compliance times for principal structural element (PSE) inspections and replacement times for safe-life limited parts. This new AD also requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate a new PSE requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer and its associated inspections, which would terminate certain inspections of the horizontal stabilizer rear spar. This AD was prompted by an analysis of data that identified a need to introduce a new PSE requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of PSEs and certain safe-life limited parts, which could adversely affect the structural integrity of the airplane.

Public Review of the Draft Part 2 (Revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Geographic Information Framework Data Standard
Document Number: 2014-30117
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Department of the Interior, U.s. Geological Survey
The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is conducting a public review of the draft Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard. The primary purpose of Part 2, Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Content Standard is to support exchange of orthoimagery data. Part 2 seeks to establish a common baseline for the semantic content of orthoimagery databases for public agencies and private enterprises. It also seeks to decrease the costs and simplify the exchange of orthoimagery data among local, Tribal, State, and Federal users and producers. That, in turn, discourages duplicative data collection. Benefits of adopting Part 2 also include the long-term improvement of geospatial orthoimagery data within the community. The draft Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard, may be downloaded from https://www.fgdc.gov/standards/projects/FGDC-standards-projec ts/ framework-data-standard/DraftRevisionPart2. Comments shall be submitted using the content template at http://www.fgdc.gov/standards/process/ standards-directives/template.doc. Instructions for completing the comment template are found in FGDC Standards Directive #2d, Standards Working Group Review Guidelines: Review Comment Template, http:// www.fgdc.gov/standards/process/standards-directives/directive -2d- standards-working-group-review-guidelines-review-comment-temp late. Comments that concern specific issues/changes/additions may result in changes in the draft Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard. Reviewers may obtain information about how comments were addressed upon request. After FGDC endorsement of Part 2 (revision), Digital Orthoimagery, of the FGDC Geographic Information Framework Data Standard and a summary analysis of the changes will be made available to the public on the FGDC Web site, www.fgdc.gov.
Monetary Threshold for Reporting Rail Equipment Accidents/Incidents for Calendar Year 2015
Document Number: 2014-30113
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Federal Railroad Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule maintains the rail equipment accident/incident monetary reporting threshold at $10,500 for railroad accidents/ incidents involving property damage that occur during calendar year (CY) 2015 that FRA's accident/incident reporting regulations require to be reported to the agency. FRA is maintaining the reporting threshold at the CY 2014 level because, in part, wage data for the second-quarter of 2014, (the data used to calculate the threshold) was abnormally high due to retroactive payment of wage increases resulting from labor contract agreements affecting several railroads. FRA believes that the data does not accurately reflect the changes in labor costs for the second-quarter of 2014 and leads to an overinflated threshold calculation for CY 2015. In addition, FRA is maintaining the monetary threshold for CY 2015 at the CY 2014 level while it reexamines the method for calculating the monetary threshold it last updated in 2005.

Authorizations of Emergency Use of In Vitro Diagnostic Devices for Detection of Ebola Zaire Virus; Availability
Document Number: 2014-30108
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the issuance of two Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) (the Authorizations) for two in vitro diagnostic devices for detection of the Ebola Zaire virus. FDA is issuing these Authorizations under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as requested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Authorizations contain, among other things, conditions on the emergency use of the authorized in vitro diagnostic devices. The Authorizations follow the September 22, 2006, determination by then-Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Michael Chertoff, that the Ebola virus presents a material threat against the U.S. population sufficient to affect national security. On the basis of such determination, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) declared on August 5, 2014, that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection of Ebola virus subject to the terms of any authorization issued under the FD&C Act. The Authorizations, which include an explanation of the reasons for issuance, are reprinted in this document.

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC has recently submitted to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on August 28, 2014. 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension. 2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 54, ``Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants.'' 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0155. 4. The form number if applicable: N/A. 5. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time application for any licensee wishing to renew the operating license for its nuclear power plant. There is a one-time requirement for each licensee with a renewed operating license to submit a letter documenting the completion of inspection and testing activities. All holders of renewed licenses must perform yearly record keeping. 6. Who will be required or asked to report: Commercial nuclear power plant licensees who wish to renew their operating licenses and holders of renewed licenses. 7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 6. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 58 (52 recordkeepers + 6 responses (2 license renewal applications expected on average + 4 letters documenting the completion of inspection and testing activities expected on average)). 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 220,340 hours (168,340 hours of reporting + 52,000 hours of recordkeeping). 10. Abstract: Part 54 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), establishes license renewal requirements for commercial nuclear power plants and describes the information that licensees must submit to the NRC when applying for a license renewal. The application must contain information on how the licensee will manage the detrimental effects of age-related degradation on certain plant systems, structures, and components so as to continue the plant's safe operation during the renewal term. The NRC needs this information to determine whether the licensee's actions will be effective in assuring the plants' continued safe operation during the period of extended operation. Holders of renewed licenses must retain in an auditable and retrievable form, for the term of the renewed operating license, all information and documentation required to document compliance with 10 CFR part 54. The NRC needs access to this information for continuing effective regulatory oversight.

ET-Plus Guardrail End Terminal
Document Number: 2014-30081
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-12-24
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The purpose of this notice is to request data and information regarding the ET-Plus guardrail end terminal (ET-Plus) manufactured by Trinity Industries, Inc. (Trinity). In 2005, the FHWA determined that ET-Plus guardrail end terminal met the relevant crash test criteria and therefore was eligible for Federal-aid highway funding. This fall, a jury issued a verdict that Trinity made a false or fraudulent claim to FHWA when it sought the eligibility determination for the ET-Plus. Additionally, a number of parties have raised concerns about the in- service performance of the ET-Plus and the potential variability in the dimensions of installed units of the ET-Plus. As a result, FHWA is undertaking a number of efforts to assess these issues. The FHWA is seeking technical information and data to assist in this work.
