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 CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2016 (81 FR 28768) (‘‘the NPRM’’). The NPRM was prompted by two in-service incidents of a loss of all air data information in the flight deck. The NPRM proposed to require a revision of the AFM emergency procedures section to provide procedures to guide the crew on how to stabilize the airplane airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight when a loss of all air data information has occurred in the flight deck. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of control when a loss of all air data information has occurred in the flight deck. Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2015–20, dated July 21, 2015 (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. The MCAI states: Two in-service incidents have been reported on CL–600–2C10 aeroplanes regarding a loss of all air data information in the cockpit. The air data information was recovered as the aeroplane descended to lower altitudes. An investigation determined that the root cause in both events was high altitude icing (ice crystal contamination). If PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 59843 not addressed, this condition may affect continued safe flight. Due to similarities in the air data systems, such events could happen on all Bombardier CRJ models, CL–600–2B19, CL–600–2C10, CL–600–2D15, CL–600–2D24 and CL–600– 2E25. Therefore, the corrective actions for these models will be mandated once their respective Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) revisions become available. This [Canadian] AD mandates the incorporation of AFM procedures to guide the crew to stabilize the aeroplane’s airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight. 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–2016– 6415. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM 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 for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier, Inc. has issued Section 03–19, ‘‘Unreliable Airspeed,’’ of Chapter 3, ‘‘Emergency Procedures,’’ in the Bombardier CRJ Series Regional Jet Model CL–600–2C10 Airplane Flight Manual CSP B–012, Revision 16A, dated November 6, 2015. The service information describes procedures to guide the crew to stabilize the airplane’s airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight when a loss of all air data information has occurred in the flight deck. 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. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 269 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: E:\FR\FM\31AUR1.SGM 31AUR1 59844 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 169 / Wednesday, August 31, 2016 / Rules and Regulations ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Cost on U.S. operators Revision .................................. 1 work-hour × $85 per hour = $85 ......................................... $0 $85 $22,865 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. ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Federal Trade Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’ or ‘‘FTC’’) is amending its Telemarketing Sales Rule (‘‘TSR’’) by updating the fees charged to entities accessing the National Do Not Call Registry (the ‘‘Registry’’) as required by the Do-NotCall Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007. DATES: The revised fees will become effective October 1, 2016. ADDRESSES: Copies of this document are available on the Internet at the Commission’s Web site: http:// www.ftc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ami Joy Dziekan, (202) 326–2648, BCP, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room CC– 9225, Washington, DC 20580. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To comply with the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–188, 122 Stat. 635) (‘‘Act’’), the Commission is amending the TSR by updating the fees entities are charged for accessing the Registry as follows: The revised rule increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data from $60 to $61 per area code; increases the maximum amount that will be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data from $16,482 to $16,714; and the fee per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period remains $30. These increases are in accordance with the Act, which specifies that beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall be increased by an amount equal to the amounts specified in the Act, multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the Department of Labor) (‘‘CPI’’) for the most recently ended 12month period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period ending June 30, 2008. The Act also ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:15 Aug 30, 2016 Jkt 238001 states that any increase shall be rounded to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar amounts if the change in the CPI is less than one percent. For fiscal year 2009, the Act specified that the original annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data was $54 per area code, or $27 per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period, and that the maximum amount that would be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data would be $14,850. The determination whether a fee change is required and the amount of the fee change involves a two-step process. First, to determine whether a fee change is required, we measure the change in the CPI from the time of the previous increase in fees. The last fees increase was for fiscal year 2015. Accordingly, we calculated the change in the CPI since fiscal year 2015, and the increase was 1.41 percent. Because this change is over the one percent threshold, the fees will change for fiscal year 2017. Second, to determine how much the fees should increase this fiscal year, we use the calculation specified by the Act set forth above, the percentage change in the baseline CPI applied to the original fees for fiscal year 2009. The average value of the CPI for July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008 was 211.702; the average value for July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 was 238.276, an increase of 12.55 percent. Applying the 12.55 percent increase to the base amount from fiscal year 2009, leads to an increase from $60 to $61 in the fee from last year for access to a single area code of data for a full year for fiscal year 2017. The actual amount is $60.78, but when rounded, pursuant to the Act, the amount is $61. The fee for accessing an additional area code for a half year remains $30 (rounded from $30.39). The maximum amount charged increases to $16,714 (rounded from $16,713.68). Administrative Procedure Act; Regulatory Flexibility Act; Paperwork Reduction Act. The revisions to the Fee Rule are technical in nature and merely incorporate statutory changes to the TSR. These statutory changes have been adopted without change or interpretation, making public comment unnecessary. Therefore, the Commission has determined that the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For this reason, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act also do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 603, 604. PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 59845 Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) approved the information collection requirements in the Amended TSR and assigned the following existing OMB Control Number: 3084–0097. The amendments outlined in this Final Rule pertain only to the fee provision (§ 310.8) of the Amended TSR and will not establish or alter any record keeping, reporting, or third-party disclosure requirements elsewhere in the Amended TSR.

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 CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 
702) airplanes. This AD was prompted by two in-service incidents of a 
loss of all air data information in the flight deck. This AD requires a 
revision of the airplane flight manual (AFM) emergency procedures 
section to provide procedures to guide the crew on how to stabilize the 
airplane airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight when a loss of 
all air data information has occurred in the flight deck. We are 
issuing this AD to prevent loss of control when a loss of all air data 
information has occurred in the flight deck.

DATES: This AD is effective October 5, 2016.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of October 5, 
2016.

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 CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes. The 
NPRM published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2016 (81 FR 28768) 
(``the NPRM''). The NPRM was prompted by two in-service incidents of a 
loss of all air data information in the flight deck. The NPRM proposed 
to require a revision of the AFM emergency procedures section to 
provide procedures to guide the crew on how to stabilize the airplane 
airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight when a loss of all air 
data information has occurred in the flight deck. We are issuing this 
AD to prevent loss of control when a loss of all air data information 
has occurred in the flight deck.
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2015-20, dated July 21, 2015 (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. The MCAI states:

    Two in-service incidents have been reported on CL-600-2C10 
aeroplanes regarding a loss of all air data information in the 
cockpit. The air data information was recovered as the aeroplane 
descended to lower altitudes. An investigation determined that the 
root cause in both events was high altitude icing (ice crystal 
contamination). If not addressed, this condition may affect 
continued safe flight.
    Due to similarities in the air data systems, such events could 
happen on all Bombardier CRJ models, CL-600-2B19, CL-600-2C10, CL-
600-2D15, CL-600-2D24 and CL-600-2E25. Therefore, the corrective 
actions for these models will be mandated once their respective 
Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) revisions become available.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the incorporation of AFM procedures 
to guide the crew to stabilize the aeroplane's airspeed and attitude 
for continued safe flight.

    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-2016-
6415.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM 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 for correcting the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.

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.
