Pelvic: The pubic symphysis force measured by the ES–2re ATD must not exceed 1,350 lbs (6,000 N). Data must be processed as defined in FMVSS 571.214. 2.5. Leg: Axial rotation of the upper leg (femur) must be limited to 35 degrees in either direction from the nominal seated position. 2.6. Neck: As measured by the ES–2re ATD and filtered at CFC 600 as defined in SAE J211: 2.6.1. The upper-neck tension force at the occipital condyle (O.C.) location must be less than 405 lb (1,800 N). 2.6.2. The upper-neck compression force at the O.C. location must be less than 405 lb (1,800 N). 2.6.3. The upper-neck bending torque about the ATD x-axis at the O.C. location must be less than 1,018 in.-lb (115 N-m). 2.6.4. The upper-neck resultant shear force at the O.C. location must be less than 186 lb (825 N). 2.7. Occupant (ES–2re ATD) retention: The pelvic restraint must remain on the ES–2re ATD’s pelvis during the impact and rebound phases of the test. The upper-torso restraint straps (if present) must remain on the ATD’s shoulder during the impact. 2.8. Occupant (ES–2re ATD) support: 2.8.1. Pelvis excursion: The loadbearing portion of the bottom of the ATD pelvis must not translate beyond the edges of its seat’s bottom seatcushion supporting structure. 2.8.2. Upper-torso support: The lateral flexion of the ATD torso must not exceed 40 degrees from the normal upright position during the impact. 3. For seats with an airbag system, show that the airbag system will deploy and provide protection under crash conditions where it is necessary to prevent serious injury. The means of protection must take into consideration a range of stature from a 2-year-old child to 95th percentile male. The airbag system must provide a consistent approach to energy absorption throughout that range of occupants. When the seat systems include airbag systems, the systems must be included in each of the certification tests as they would be installed in the airplane. In addition, the following situations must be considered: 3.1. The seat occupant is holding an infant. 3.2. The seat occupant is a pregnant woman. 4. The airbag systems must provide adequate protection for each occupant regardless of the number of occupants of the seat assembly, considering that VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:36 Aug 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 unoccupied seats may have an active airbag system. 5. The design must prevent the airbag systems from being either incorrectly buckled or incorrectly installed, such that the airbag systems would not properly deploy. Alternatively, it must be shown that such deployment is not hazardous to the occupant and will provide the required injury protection. 6. It must be shown that the airbag system is not susceptible to inadvertent deployment as a result of wear and tear, or inertial loads resulting from in-flight or ground maneuvers (including gusts and hard landings), and other operating and environment conditions (vibrations, moisture, etc.) likely to occur in service. 7. Deployment of the airbag system must not introduce injury mechanisms to the seated occupant, nor result in injuries that could impede rapid egress. This assessment should include an occupant whose restraint is loosely fastened. 8. It must be shown that inadvertent deployment of the airbag system, during the most critical part of the flight, will either meet the requirement of § 25.1309(b) or not cause a hazard to the airplane or its occupants. 9. It must be shown that the airbag system will not impede rapid egress of occupants 10 seconds after airbag deployment. 10. The airbag systems must be protected from lightning and highintensity radiated fields (HIRF). The threats to the airplane specified in existing regulations regarding lighting, § 25.1316, and HIRF, § 25.1317 apply to these special conditions for the purpose of measuring lightning and HIRF protection. 11. The airbag system must function properly after loss of normal airplane electrical power, and after a transverse separation of the fuselage at the most critical location. A separation at the location of the airbag systems does not have to be considered. 12. It must be shown that the airbag system will not release hazardous quantities of gas or particulate matter into the cabin. 13. The airbag system installations must be protected from the effects of fire such that no hazard to occupants will result. 14. A means must be available for a crew member to verify the integrity of the airbag system’s activation system prior to each flight, or it must be demonstrated to reliably operate between inspection intervals. The FAA considers that the loss of the airbagsystem deployment function alone (i.e., independent of the conditional event that requires the airbag-system PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 49945 deployment) is a major-failure condition. 15. The inflatable material may not have an average burn rate of greater than 2.5 inches/minute when tested using the horizontal flammability test defined in 14 CFR part 25, appendix F, part I, paragraph (b)(5). 16. The airbag system, once deployed, must not adversely affect the emergency lighting system (e.g., block floor proximity lights to the extent that the lights no longer meet their intended function).

Background The TCCUA authorizes grants for operating and improving tribally controlled colleges and universities to insure [sic] continued and expanded educational opportunities for Indian students and to allow for the improvement and expansion of the physical resources of such institutions. See, 25 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. The TCCUA also authorizes grants for the encouragement of endowment funds for the operation and improvement of tribally controlled colleges and universities. The NCCA authorizes grants to the Navajo Nation to assist in the construction, maintenance, and ´ operation of Dine College. See 25 U.S.C. 640a et seq. In 1968, the Navajo Nation created the first tribally controlled college, now ´ called Dine College—and other tribal colleges quickly followed in California, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Today, there are 37 tribally controlled colleges in 17 states. The tribally controlled institutions were chartered by one or more tribes and are locally managed. Tribally controlled colleges generally serve geographically isolated populations. In a relatively brief period of time, they have become essential to educational opportunity for American Indian students. Tribally controlled colleges are unique institutions that combine personal attention with cultural relevance, in such a way as to encourage American Indians— especially those living on reservations— to overcome barriers to higher education. II. Purpose of the Proposed Rule The regulations at 25 CFR part 41 were originally published in 1979. See, 44 FR 67042 dated November 21, 1979.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 12, 2015, OWCP published a notice 
of proposed rulemaking revising 20 CFR parts 702 and 703 to broaden the 
acceptable methods by which claimants, employers, and insurers can 
communicate with OWCP and each other regarding claims arising under the 
Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and its extensions. (80 
FR 12957). On the same date, OWCP published a direct final rule 
containing identical revisions because it believed that the proposed 
revisions were non-controversial and unlikely to generate significant 
adverse comment. (80 FR 12917). OWCP indicated that if it did not 
receive any significant adverse comments on either rule by May 11, 
2015, the direct final rule would take effect and there would be no 
further need to proceed with the notice of proposed rulemaking. (See 80 
FR 12918, 12957-58).
    OWCP received two public comments that were not significant adverse 
comments. One expressed support for the proposed rule and the other did 
not substantively address the rule. Because OWCP did not receive any 
significant adverse comments within the specified comment period, it is 
withdrawing the notice of proposed rulemaking with this notice. For the 
same reason, OWCP is also confirming that the direct final rule took 
effect on June 10, 2015.
