The purpose of these notices is to give interested persons an opportunity to participate in the rule making prior to the adoption of the final rules. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2015–2457; Directorate Identifier 2014–NM–209–AD] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, and Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report indicating that some operators have inadvertently removed the existing insulation blankets from the upper wing box area. This proposed AD would require inspecting for and replacing missing insulation blankets in the upper wing box area. We are proposing this AD to detect and replace missing insulation blankets from the upper wing box area, which could result in inadequate thermal protection to prevent fuel ignition in the event of an undetected bleed air leak due to a cracked or ruptured bleed-air duct.

Discussion Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2014–35, dated October 17, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL– 600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, and Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. The MCAI states: It was discovered that some operators have inadvertently removed the existing insulation blankets from the upper wing box area while incorporating Bombardier Service Bulletin (SB) 670BA–36–016 to comply with [Canadian] AD CF–2012–06 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2012–12–02, Amendment 39–17081 (77 FR 36129, June 18, 2012)]. Without insulation blankets on the upper wing box area, there may be inadequate thermal protection to prevent fuel ignition in the event of an undetected bleed air leak due to a cracked or ruptured bleed-air duct. This [Canadian] AD mandates the inspection and rectification [i.e., replacement], as required, of the insulation blankets in the upper wing box area. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2015– 2457. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–57–024, dated July 23, 2014. This service information describes procedures for an inspection of the insulation blankets in the upper wing box area to find if the blankets are installed, and replacement of missing insulation blankets. This service information is reasonably available because the interested parties have access to it through their normal course of business or by the means identified in the ADDRESSES section of this NPRM. E:\FR\FM\07JYP1.SGM 07JYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 129 / Tuesday, July 7, 2015 / Proposed Rules FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 470 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $0 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $159,800, or $340 per product. In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions would take up to 70 work-hours and require parts costing up to $665, for a cost of up to $6,615 per product. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need this action. 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 proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:31 Jul 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 this proposed regulation: 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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

Section 506.3 Consent to collection and use of sender’s transactional and personal identification data This regulation will clarify that persons sending or depositing, or attempting to send or deposit, funds to an inmate’s commissary account under this subpart are required to provide all related transactional data, including the sender’s personal identification information, to (1) the Bureau; and (2) the service provider(s) (for example, a financial institution, bank, money service business, or money service provider or processor) in accordance with the provisions of its agreement for providing service to the Bureau. System of records BOP–006, Inmate Trust Fund Accounts and Commissary Record System, currently authorizes the Bureau to collect ‘‘personal identification data for persons who send or receive funds to/from inmates. This regulation serves to put the public on notice that such data will be collected whenever funds are sent or attempted to be sent to an inmate, regardless of the form of the deposit. This regulation will also clarify that by sending or depositing, or attempting to send or deposit, funds to an inmate’s commissary account under this subpart, a person consents to the collection, review, use, disclosure, and retention of, all related transactional data, including the sender’s personal identification information, by both (1) the Bureau, pursuant to the applicable Privacy Act system(s) of records; and (2) the service provider in accordance with the provisions of its agreement for providing service to the Bureau.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2014-35, dated October 17, 2014 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-
2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 
(Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional 
Jet Series 900) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    It was discovered that some operators have inadvertently removed 
the existing insulation blankets from the upper wing box area while 
incorporating Bombardier Service Bulletin (SB) 670BA-36-016 to 
comply with [Canadian] AD CF-2012-06 [which corresponds to FAA AD 
2012-12-02, Amendment 39-17081 (77 FR 36129, June 18, 2012)].
    Without insulation blankets on the upper wing box area, there 
may be inadequate thermal protection to prevent fuel ignition in the 
event of an undetected bleed air leak due to a cracked or ruptured 
bleed-air duct.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the inspection and rectification 
[i.e., replacement], as required, of the insulation blankets in the 
upper wing box area.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2015-
2457.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-57-024, dated July 
23, 2014. This service information describes procedures for an 
inspection of the insulation blankets in the upper wing box area to 
find if the blankets are installed, and replacement of missing 
insulation blankets. This service information is reasonably available 
because the interested parties have access to it through their normal 
course of business or by the means identified in the ADDRESSES section 
of this NPRM.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 470 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average 
labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $0 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed 
AD on U.S. operators to be $159,800, or $340 per product.
    In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions would 
take up to 70 work-hours and require parts costing up to $665, for a 
cost of up to $6,615 per product. We have no way of determining the 
number of aircraft that might need this action.

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 proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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.

The Proposed Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 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):

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2015-2457; Directorate Identifier 
2014-NM-209-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by August 21, 2015.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional 
Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional 
Jet Series 705) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet 
Series 900) airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified 
in Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-57-024, dated July 23, 2014.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 57, Wings.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report indicating that some operators 
have inadvertently removed the existing insulation blankets from the 
upper wing box area. We are issuing this AD to detect and replace 
missing insulation blankets from the upper wing box area, which 
could result in inadequate thermal protection to prevent fuel 
ignition in the event of an undetected bleed air leak due to a 
cracked or ruptured bleed-air duct.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Inspection

    Within 800 flight hours or 4 months after the effective date of 
this AD, whichever occurs first: Do a general visual inspection of 
the insulation blankets in the upper wing box area to determine 
whether any insulation blanket is missing in specified areas, in 
accordance with Part A of the Accomplishment Instructions of 
Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-57-024, dated July 23, 2014.
    (1) If no insulation blanket is missing, no further action is 
required by this AD.
    (2) If any insulation blanket is missing, within 1,200 flight 
hours or 6 months after the effective date of this AD, whichever 
occurs first, replace the missing insulation blankets, in accordance 
with Part B of the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Service 
Bulletin 670BA-57-024, dated July 23, 2014; except, where Bombardier 
Service Bulletin 670BA-57-024, dated July 23, 2014, specifies 
contacting Bombardier for ``an approved disposition to complete this 
service bulletin,'' this AD requires corrective action to be done 
using a method approved by the Manager, New York Aircraft 
Certification Office (ACO), ANE-170, FAA; or Transport Canada Civil 
Aviation (TCCA); or Bombardier, Inc.'s TCCA Design Approval 
Organization (DAO).

(h) Other FAA AD Provisions

    The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, New 
York ACO, ANE-170, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this 
AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. In 
accordance with 14 CFR 39.19, send your request to your principal 
inspector or local Flight Standards District Office, as appropriate. 
If sending information directly to the ACO, send it to ATTN: Program 
Manager, Continuing Operational Safety, FAA, New York ACO, 1600 
Stewart Avenue, Suite 410, Westbury, NY 11590; telephone 516-228-
7300; fax 516-794-5531. Before using any approved AMOC, notify your 
appropriate principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, 
the manager of the local flight standards district office/
certificate holding district office. The AMOC approval letter must 
specifically reference this AD.
    (2) Contacting the Manufacturer: For any requirement in this AD 
to obtain corrective actions from a manufacturer, the action must be 
accomplished using a method approved by the Manager, New York ACO, 
ANE-170, FAA; or TCCA; or Bombardier, Inc.'s TCCA DAO. If approved 
by the DAO, the approval must include the DAO-authorized signature.
