Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 53 / Thursday, March 19, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 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 have 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 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.

(b) Unsafe Condition This AD defines the unsafe condition as a crack in a rod end assembly, which could result in fracture of the rod end assembly, damage to the main rotor, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. (c) Affected ADs This AD supersedes AD 2014–04–14, amendment 39–17773 (79 FR 11699, March 3, 2014). (d) Effective Date This AD becomes effective April 23, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In General On October 20, 2010, the Department of Labor (Department) published a final regulation requiring plan administrators to disclose certain plan and investmentrelated information, including fee and expense information, to participants and beneficiaries in participant-directed individual account plans.1 The regulation requires certain information to be furnished on or before the date on which a participant can first direct his or her investments and ‘‘at least annually thereafter.’’ The regulation defines this term as ‘‘at least once in any 12-month period, without regard to whether the plan operates on a calendar or fiscal year basis.’’ 2 The regulation was effective on December 20, 2010, but was not applicable until plan years beginning on or after November 1, 2011.3 On July 30, 2012, the Department’s Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) issued Field Assistance Bulletin 2012–02R (FAB 2012–02R) providing guidance on frequently asked questions. Q&A 35 clarified that, for most plans, including calendar year plans, the first initial disclosures under the new regulation were required no later than August 30, 2012. FAB 2012–02R did not, however, specifically address the deadline for subsequent annual disclosures.4 In Field Assistance Bulletin 2013–02, issued July 22, 2013, the Department made clear that the regulation requires annual disclosures to be made no more than one year exactly (e.g., 365 days) after the prior annual disclosures. Specifically, FAB 2013–02, in relevant part, states ‘‘[f]or example, a plan administrator that furnished the first required chart on August 25, 2012, must furnish the next comparative chart no 1 29 CFR 2550.404a–5; 75 FR 64910. CFR 2550.404a–5(h)(1). 3 The specified applicability date was subsequently delayed by amendment published on July 19, 2011. 76 FR 42539. Under the amendment, the initial disclosures required on or before the date on which a participant or beneficiary can first direct his or her investments must be furnished no later than the later of 60 days after such applicability date or 60 days after the effective date of 29 CFR 2550.408b–2(c). 29 CFR 2550.404a–5(j)(3)(i)(A). 4 FAB 2012–02R supersedes FAB 2012–02 issued on May 7, 2012. Changes in the superseding bulletin did not affect Question 35. 2 29 E:\FR\FM\19MRR1.SGM 19MRR1

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. Model SC-7 
Series 3 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any 
category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 32: Landing 
Gear.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness 
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another 
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation 
product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as fatigue cracking 
which could lead to structural failure of the nose landing gear 
(NLG). We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking 
which, if not detected and corrected, could lead to structural 
failure of the NLG, possibly resulting in loss of control of the 
airplane during take-off or landing.
