SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–100–1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. This AD was prompted by multiple reports of chafing found on an electrical wiring harness in the aft equipment bay, caused by contact between the wiring harness and a neighboring hydraulic line. This AD requires an inspection, repair if necessary, and modification of the wiring harness installation to ensure that the wiring harness routing is correct and a minimum clearance between the wire and the hydraulic line is maintained. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct chafing on an electrical wiring harness, which could cause an electrical short circuit or lead to a malfunction of the flight control system, the engine indication system, or the hydraulic power control system; and adversely affect the continued safe operation and landing of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective December 22, 2015. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of December 22, 2015.

It is also available on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2015– 0929. We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–100–1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on May 8, 2015 (80 FR 26490). Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2014–32, dated September 8, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD– 100–1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The MCAI states: There have been multiple in-service reports of chafing found on an electrical wiring harness in the aft equipment bay. An investigation determined that the chafing was attributed to contact between the wiring harness and a neighboring hydraulic line. This chafing could cause an electrical short circuit or lead to a malfunction of the flight control system, the engine indication system, or the hydraulic power control system; which could adversely affect the continued safe operation and landing of the aeroplane. This [Canadian] AD mandates the inspection [general visual inspection], rectification as required [repair of damage (including wear and chafing)], and modification of the wiring harness installation to ensure the correct wiring routing and a minimum clearance between the wire and the hydraulic line is maintained.

Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 26490, May 8, 2015) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 26490, May 8, 2015) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 26490, May 8, 2015). Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier, Inc. has issued Service Bulletin 100–24–24, dated June 6, 2014. The service information describes procedures for an inspection, repair if necessary, and modification of the wiring harness installation to prevent contact with the hydraulic line. 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 AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 107 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $64 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $43,228, or $404 per product. We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for the on-condition actions specified in this AD. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need these actions. According to the manufacturer, all of the costs of this AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost estimate. E:\FR\FM\17NOR1.SGM 17NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 221 / Tuesday, November 17, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 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. wgreen on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!docketDetail;D=FAA-2015-0929; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Gray, Attorney, (202) 326– 3408, Division of Enforcement, Bureau of Consumer Protection, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20580. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction Congress enacted the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, 15 U.S.C. 1451 et seq., (‘‘FPLA’’ or ‘‘Act’’) in 1966 to enable consumers to obtain accurate package quantity information to facilitate value comparisons and prevent unfair or deceptive packaging and labeling of ‘‘consumer commodities.’’ 1 Pursuant to the FPLA, the Commission promulgated the Rules, which generally concern products consumed during household use. However, several categories of these products are exempt from FTC regulations under the FPLA.2 Moreover, the FTC has excluded certain others from the Rules.3 Section 1453 of the Act directs the Commission to issue regulations requiring that all ‘‘consumer commodities’’ be labeled to disclose: (a) The identity of the commodity (e.g., detergent, sponges), which must appear on the principal display panel of the commodity in conspicuous type and position so that identity is easy to read and understand; 4 (b) the name and place of business of the product’s manufacturer, packer, or distributor; 5 1 Consumer commodities are any food, device, or cosmetic, and any other article, product, or commodity that is customarily produced or distributed for sale through retail sales agencies or instrumentalities for consumption or use by individuals for purposes of personal care or in the performance of services ordinarily rendered within the household, and which usually is consumed or expended in the course of such consumption or use. 15 U.S.C. 1459(a). The Food and Drug Administration (‘‘FDA’’) administers the FPLA with respect to food, drugs, cosmetics, and medical devices. 15 U.S.C. 1454(a); 15 U.S.C. 1456(a). 2 15 U.S.C. 1459(a)(1–5) (excluding, among other products, specified categories of meat, poultry, tobacco, insecticide, fungicide, drug, alcohol, and seed products). 3 16 CFR 503.2, 503.5. Many products outside the scope of the FPLA and the Rules nevertheless fall within the purview of individual state laws. 15 U.S.C. 1461. See also National Institute of Standards and Technology Handbook 130, Uniform Laws and Regulations in the areas of legal metrology and engine fuel quality (2015 ed.) (compilation of state and federal laws and regulations pertaining to product labeling and packaging). 4 16 CFR 500.4. 5 16 CFR 500.5. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 and (c) the net quantity of contents in terms of weight, measure, or numerical count, with such disclosure’s placement and content in accordance with the Rules.6 The Rules detail how units of weight or mass and measure must be stated, and require use of both U.S. (e.g., pounds, feet, and gallons) and metric measures.7 The Rules also require net quantity disclosures for packages containing more than one product or unit, including: (a) ‘‘multi-unit packages’’; 8 (b) ‘‘variety packages’’; 9 and (c) ‘‘combination packages.’’ 10 In addition, the Act grants the FTC authority to issue rules to prevent consumer deception and facilitate value comparisons.11 The FTC has used this authority to address three types of representations: ‘‘cents-off,’’ 12 ‘‘introductory offer,’’ 13 and ‘‘economy size.’’ 14 As part of its ongoing regulatory review program, the Commission published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (‘‘ANPR’’) in March 2014 seeking comment on the economic impact of, and the continuing need for, the Rules; the benefits of the 6 16 CFR 500.6(b). The Office of Weights and Measures of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce, is authorized to promote, to the greatest practical extent, uniformity in state and federal regulation of the labeling of consumer commodities. 15 U.S.C. 1458(a)(2). 7 Congress amended the FPLA in 1992 to require use of metric measurements, in addition to customary inch/pound measures. Pub. L. 102–245 (February 14, 1992); Pub. L. 102–329 (August 3, 1992). In 1994, the FTC modified its regulations accordingly. 59 FR 1872 (Jan. 12, 1994). 8 16 CFR 500.27. 9 16 CFR 500.28. 10 16 CFR 500.29. 11 15 U.S.C. 1454(c). This discretionary authority enables the FTC to address four situations: (1) Setting standards for characterizing package sizes to supplement the net quantity statement (e.g., establishing a uniform size for a single sheet of toilet paper); (2) regulating packaging that claims a product price is lower than its customary retail price; (3) requiring labels to use common names or listing ingredients in order of decreasing prominence; and (4) preventing nonfunctional slack-fill. 15 U.S.C. 1454(c). 12 A cents-off representation is one in which ‘‘cents-off’’ or a similar term is used to indicate that the consumer commodity is being offered for sale at a price lower than the ordinary and customary retail price. 16 CFR 502.100. 13 An introductory offer is one in which ‘‘introductory offer’’ or a similar phrase is used to indicate that the consumer commodity is being offered for sale at a price lower than the ordinary and customary retail price. 16 CFR 502.101. The Rules prohibit introductory offers in a trade area for a duration in excess of six months. 16 CFR 502.101(b)(3). 14 An economy size representation is one in which ‘‘economy size’’ or similar phrase is used to indicate that the consumer commodity has a retail sale price advantage due to the size of that package or the quantity of its contents. 16 CFR 502.102.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 
Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. This AD 
was prompted by multiple reports of chafing found on an electrical 
wiring harness in the aft equipment bay, caused by contact between the 
wiring harness and a neighboring hydraulic line. This AD requires an 
inspection, repair if necessary, and modification of the wiring harness 
installation to ensure that the wiring harness routing is correct and a 
minimum clearance between the wire and the hydraulic line is 
maintained. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct chafing on an 
electrical wiring harness, which could cause an electrical short 
circuit or lead to a malfunction of the flight control system, the 
engine indication system, or the hydraulic power control system; and 
adversely affect the continued safe operation and landing of the 
airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective December 22, 2015.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of December 22, 
2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Bombardier, Inc. 
Model BD-100-1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The NPRM published in the 
Federal Register on May 8, 2015 (80 FR 26490).
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2014-32, dated September 8, 2014 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-
1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    There have been multiple in-service reports of chafing found on 
an electrical wiring harness in the aft equipment bay. An 
investigation determined that the chafing was attributed to contact 
between the wiring harness and a neighboring hydraulic line. This 
chafing could cause an electrical short circuit or lead to a 
malfunction of the flight control system, the engine indication 
system, or the hydraulic power control system; which could adversely 
affect the continued safe operation and landing of the aeroplane.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the inspection [general visual 
inspection], rectification as required [repair of damage (including 
wear and chafing)], and modification of the wiring harness 
installation to ensure the correct wiring routing and a minimum 
clearance between the wire and the hydraulic line is maintained.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-0929-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 26490, May 8, 2015) 
or on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for 
minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (80 FR 26490, May 8, 2015) for correcting the unsafe condition; 
and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 26490, May 8, 2015).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Bombardier, Inc. has issued Service Bulletin 100-24-24, dated June 
6, 2014. The service information describes procedures for an 
inspection, repair if necessary, and modification of the wiring harness 
installation to prevent contact with the hydraulic line. 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 AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 107 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it will take about 4 work-hours per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $64 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on 
U.S. operators to be $43,228, or $404 per product.
    We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide 
cost estimates for the on-condition actions specified in this AD. We 
have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need these 
actions.
    According to the manufacturer, all of the costs of this AD may be 
covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected 
individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected 
individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost 
estimate.

    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 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 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.

directive (AD):

2015-23-07 Bombardier, Inc.: Amendment 39-18323. Docket No. FAA-
2015-0929; Directorate Identifier 2014-NM-218-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD becomes effective December 22, 2015.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-1A10 
(Challenger 300) airplanes, certificated in any category, having 
serial numbers 20003 through 20382 inclusive, 20384, and 20386.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 24, Electrical 
Power.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by multiple reports of chafing found on an 
electrical wiring harness in the aft equipment bay, caused by 
contact between the wiring harness and a neighboring hydraulic line. 
We are issuing this AD to detect and correct chafing on an 
electrical wiring harness, which could cause an electrical short 
circuit or lead to a malfunction of the flight control system, the 
engine indication system, or the hydraulic power control system; 
which could adversely affect the continued safe operation and 
landing of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Inspection, Repair, and Preventive Modification

    Within 36 months after the effective date of this AD, do the 
actions required by paragraphs (g)(1) and (g)(2) of this AD.
    (1) Do a one-time general visual inspection to detect damage 
(including wear and chafing) of the wiring harness, in accordance 
with the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier, Inc. Service 
Bulletin 100-24-24, dated June 6, 2014. Repair any damage before 
further flight, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions 
of Bombardier, Inc. Service Bulletin 100-24-24, dated June 6, 2014; 
except, where Bombardier, Inc. Service Bulletin 100-24-24, dated 
June 6, 2014, specifies to contact Bombardier for repair 
instructions, repair 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).
    (2) Modify the wiring harness routing, in accordance with the 
Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier, Inc. Service Bulletin 
100-24-24, dated June 6, 2014.

(h) Definition of General Visual Inspection

    For the purposes of this AD, a general visual inspection is a 
visual examination of an interior or exterior area, installation, or 
assembly to detect obvious damage, failure, or irregularity. This 
level of inspection is made from within touching distance unless 
otherwise specified. A mirror may be necessary to ensure visual 
access to all surfaces in the inspection area. This level of 
inspection is made under normally available lighting conditions such 
as daylight, hangar lighting, flashlight, or droplight and may 
require removal or opening of access panels or doors. Stands, 
ladders, or platforms may be required to gain proximity to the area 
being checked.

(i) 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
