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 The Boeing Company Model 747–8 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on April 29, 2015 (80 FR 23739). The NPRM was prompted by a report of improperly installed outboard stowage bin modules in the passenger compartment found during maintenance. Further investigation revealed that certain attachment bracket bushings were missing or had moved out of the holes. The NPRM proposed to require installing a spacer on the end of each quick-release pin that attaches the outboard stowage bin module to the lateral support tie rods of the main deck passenger compartment. We are issuing this AD to prevent detachment of the quick-release pin, which could result in separation of the lateral support tie rod and subsequent detachment of the module and consequent injuries to passengers or flightcrew. Comment We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following presents the comment received on the NPRM (80 FR 23739, April 29, 2015) and the FAA’s response to each comment. Request To Revise Costs of Compliance Section with the changes described previously and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 23739, April 29, 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 23739, April 29, 2015). Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Boeing asked that we add the parts cost to the cost table in the NPRM (80 FR 23739, April 29, 2015). Boeing stated that the parts cost per spacer is $80, which increases the cost per product to $1,100, and the cost on U.S. operators to up to $2,200. We agree with the commenter for the reason provided. We have included the parts cost and changed the amount of the cost per product and the cost on U.S. operators specified in the ‘‘Costs of Compliance’’ section of this final rule. We reviewed Boeing Special Attention Service Bulletin 747–25– 3649, dated July 24, 2014. The service information describes procedures for installing a spacer on the end of each quick-release pin that attaches the outboard stowage bin module to the lateral support tie rods of the main deck passenger compartment. 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. Conclusion Costs of Compliance We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comment received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD We estimate that this AD affects 2 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Spacer installations .............................. Up to 12 work-hours × $85 per hour = Up to $1,020. $80 per spacer ..... Up to $1,100 ......... Cost on U.S. operators Up to $2,200 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Authority for This Rulemaking Regulatory Findings List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 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. 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.

ACTION: Final rule. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is revoking the standards of identity for artificially sweetened jelly, preserves, and jams. We are taking this action primarily in response to a citizen petition submitted by the International Jelly and Preserve Association (IJPA). We also are taking this action because these standards are obsolete and unnecessary in light of our regulations for foods named by use of a nutrient content claim and a standardized term.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background For more than 50 years, we have maintained standards of identity for fruit jelly (jelly) (§ 150.140 (21 CFR 150.140)) and fruit preserves and jams (preserves and jams) (§ 150.160). The standards establish the common or usual name for these products and provide that these products may contain nutritive sweeteners (e.g., sugar). In 1959, we added new standards of identity for artificially sweetened fruit jelly (artificially sweetened jelly) (§ 150.141) and artificially sweetened fruit preserves and jams (artificially sweetened preserves and jams) (§ 150.161) (24 FR 8896; October 31, 1959) that permit the use of nonnutritive sweeteners (e.g., saccharin). Notably, §§ 150.141 and 150.161 limit the types of non-nutritive sweeteners that can be used in products that are governed by those standards of identity. Under §§ 150.141 and 150.161, such products may only use saccharin, E:\FR\FM\20NOR1.SGM 20NOR1

of each quick-release pin that attaches the outboard stowage bin module 
to the lateral support tie rods of the main deck passenger compartment. 
We are issuing this AD to prevent detachment of the quick-release pin, 
which could result in separation of the lateral support tie rod and 
subsequent detachment of the module and consequent injuries to 
passengers or flightcrew.

DATES: This AD is effective December 28, 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 The Boeing Company 
Model 747-8 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on 
April 29, 2015 (80 FR 23739). The NPRM was prompted by a report of 
improperly installed outboard stowage bin modules in the passenger 
compartment found during maintenance. Further investigation revealed 
that certain attachment bracket bushings were missing or had moved out 
of the holes. The NPRM proposed to require installing a spacer on the 
end of each quick-release pin that attaches the outboard stowage bin 
module to the lateral support tie rods of the main deck passenger 
compartment. We are issuing this AD to prevent detachment of the quick-
release pin, which could result in separation of the lateral support 
tie rod and subsequent detachment of the module and consequent injuries 
to passengers or flightcrew.

Comment

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. The following presents the comment received on the NPRM (80 FR 
23739, April 29, 2015) and the FAA's response to each comment.

Request To Revise Costs of Compliance Section

    Boeing asked that we add the parts cost to the cost table in the 
NPRM (80 FR 23739, April 29, 2015). Boeing stated that the parts cost 
per spacer is $80, which increases the cost per product to $1,100, and 
the cost on U.S. operators to up to $2,200.
    We agree with the commenter for the reason provided. We have 
included the parts cost and changed the amount of the cost per product 
and the cost on U.S. operators specified in the ``Costs of Compliance'' 
section of this final rule.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comment received, and 
determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting 
this AD with the changes described previously and minor editorial 
changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (80 FR 23739, April 29, 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 23739, April 29, 2015).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed Boeing Special Attention Service Bulletin 747-25-3649, 
dated July 24, 2014. The service information describes procedures for 
installing a spacer on the end of each quick-release pin that attaches 
the outboard stowage bin module to the lateral support tie rods of the 
main deck passenger compartment. 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 2 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

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

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.

Adoption of the Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

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]

2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

2015-23-10 The Boeing Company: Amendment 39-18326; Docket No.

[[Page 72581]]

FAA-2015-0932; Directorate Identifier 2014-NM-205-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective December 28, 2015.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to The Boeing Company Model 747-8 series 
airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified in Boeing 
Special Attention Service Bulletin 747-25-3649, dated July 24, 2014.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 25, Equipment/
Furnishings.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by a report of improperly installed 
outboard stowage bin modules in the passenger compartment found 
during maintenance. Further investigation revealed that certain 
attachment bracket bushings were missing or had moved out of the 
holes. We are issuing this AD to prevent detachment of the quick-
release pin, which could result in separation of the lateral support 
tie rod and subsequent detachment of the module and consequent 
injuries to passengers or flightcrew.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Installation

    Within 36 months after the effective date of this AD: Install a 
spacer on the end of each quick-release pin that attaches the 
outboard stowage bin module to the lateral support tie rods of the 
main deck passenger compartment, in accordance with the 
Accomplishment Instructions of Boeing Special Attention Service 
Bulletin 747-25-3649, dated July 24, 2014.

(h) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs)

    (1) The Manager, Seattle Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), 
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 manager of the Seattle ACO, send it to 
the attention of the person identified in paragraph (i) of this AD. 
Information may be emailed to: 9-ANM-Seattle-ACO-AMOC-Requests@faa.gov.
    (2) 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.
    (3) For service information that contains steps that are labeled 
as Required for Compliance (RC), the provisions of paragraphs 
(h)(3)(i) and (h)(3)(ii) apply.
    (i) The steps labeled as RC, including substeps under an RC step 
and any figures identified in an RC step, must be done to comply 
with the AD. An AMOC is required for any deviations to RC steps, 
including substeps and identified figures.
    (ii) Steps not labeled as RC may be deviated from using accepted 
methods in accordance with the operator's maintenance or inspection 
program without obtaining approval of an AMOC, provided the RC 
steps, including substeps and identified figures, can still be done 
as specified, and the airplane can be put back in an airworthy 
condition.
