The following paragraphs will be incorporated into the next revision of FAA Order JO 7930.2. Paragraph 4–2–1a–14, Start of Activity/End of Validity, is ‘‘a 10-digit date-time group (YYMMDDHHMM) used to indicate the time at which the NOT AM comes into force (the date/ time a condition will exist or begin) and the time at which the NOTAM ceases to be in force and becomes invalid (the expected return to service, return to normal status time, or the time the activity will end).’’ Paragraph 4–2–1a–14(a) further specifies, that if the NOTAM duration is expected to return to service prior to the End of Validity time, express the time by using a date- time group followed immediately by EST. The NOTAM Originator must cancel or replace any NOTAM that includes an EST before the NOTAM reaches its End of Validity time, as the NOTAM will now auto expire at the end of validity time, regardless of EST.

This document revises certain language in OSHA’s standards to reflect the Agency’s intent about the scope of two general industry standards. First, this document revises language that mistakenly could be read as suggesting that the general industry electric power generation, transmission, and distribution standard covers certain tree-trimming work that is performed near, but that is not on or directly associated with, electric power generation, transmission, and distribution installations. This was never OSHA’s intent; rather, OSHA intended that the general industry electrical safety-related work practices standard cover such work. Similarly, OSHA is correcting language in its general industry electrical safety-related work practices standard to make clear that the standard covers other work performed by qualified persons that is near, but not on or directly associated with, both electric power generation, transmission, and distribution installations and certain other types of installations. This notice also corrects minor errors in two minimum approach distance tables in the general industry and construction standards for electric power generation, transmission and distribution work.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Flight Services is 
revising FAA Order JO 7930.2, Notices to Airmen (NOTAM), which is 
scheduled to become effective no later than December 15, 2015.
    The following paragraphs will be incorporated into the next 
revision of FAA Order JO 7930.2.
    Paragraph 4-2-1a-14, Start of Activity/End of Validity, is ``a 10-
digit date-time group (YYMMDDHHMM) used to indicate the time at which 
the NOT AM comes into force (the date/time a condition will exist or 
begin) and the time at which the NOTAM ceases to be in force and 
becomes invalid (the expected return to service, return to normal 
status time, or the time the activity will end).''
    Paragraph 4-2-1a-14(a) further specifies, that if the NOTAM 
duration is expected to return to service prior to the End of Validity 
time, express the time by using a date- time group followed immediately 
by EST. The NOTAM Originator must cancel or replace any NOTAM that 
includes an EST before the NOTAM reaches its End of Validity time, as 
the NOTAM will now auto expire at the end of validity time, regardless 
of EST.
