ACTION: Final rule. We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014–13– 12 for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. AD 2014–13–12 required identifying the part number and serial number of each passenger oxygen container, replacing the oxygen generator manifold of any affected oxygen container with a serviceable manifold, performing an operational check of the manual mask release, and doing corrective actions if necessary. This new AD retains the requirements of AD 2014–13–12, and requires replacing the oxygen generator manifold of any affected DAe oxygen container with a serviceable manifold. This AD was prompted by reports of silicon particles inside the oxygen generator manifolds, which had chafed from the mask hoses during installation onto the generator outlets. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective January 20, 2017. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of January 20, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2014–13–12, Amendment 39–17888 (79 FR 45317, August 5, 2014) (‘‘AD 2014–13–12’’). AD 2014–13–12 applied to all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2016 (81 FR 14990). The NPRM was prompted by reports of silicon particles inside the oxygen generator manifolds, which had chafed from the mask hoses during installation onto the generator outlets. The NPRM proposed to continue to require identifying the part number and E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 242 / Friday, December 16, 2016 / Rules and Regulations asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES serial number of each passenger oxygen container, replacing the oxygen generator manifold of any affected oxygen container with a serviceable manifold, and performing an operational check of the manual mask release, and doing corrective actions if necessary. The NPRM also proposed to require replacing the oxygen generator manifold of any affected DAe oxygen container with a serviceable manifold. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct nonserviceable oxygen generator manifolds, which could reduce or block the oxygen supply and result in injury to passengers when oxygen supply is needed. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2014–0208, dated September 16, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition. The MCAI states: During production of passenger oxygen containers, the manufacturer, B/E Aerospace, detected some silicon particles inside the oxygen generator manifolds. Investigation revealed that those particles (chips) had chafed from the mask hoses during installation onto the generator outlets. It was discovered that a defective mask hose installation device had caused the chafing. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could reduce or block the oxygen supply, possibly resulting in injury to passengers when oxygen supply is needed. To address this potential unsafe condition, EASA issued AD 2011–0167 to require the identification and modification of the affected oxygen container assemblies. That [EASA] AD also prohibited the installation of the affected containers on any aeroplane as replacement parts. It was subsequently established that Models A318–121 and A318–122 were missing from the Applicability of the [EASA] AD, and clarification was necessary regarding the affected containers. Consequently, EASA issued AD 2012–0083 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2014–13–12], retaining the requirements of EASA AD 2011–0167, which was superseded, expanded the Applicability by adding two aeroplane models, and provided clarity by providing a list of affected passenger oxygen containers. Since that [EASA] AD was issued, it was found that the affected containers have not only been marked with company name B/E Aerospace, as was specified, but also, for a brief period, with the former company name DAe Systems. For the reason described above, this [EASA] AD retains the requirements of EASA AD 2012–0083, which is superseded, and expands the affected group of containers to include those that have the name ‘‘DAe Systems’’ on the identification plate. This [EASA] AD also clearly separates the serial number (s/n) groups of containers into VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Dec 15, 2016 Jkt 241001 those manufactured by B/E Aerospace and those manufactured by DAe Systems, for which additional compliance time is provided. 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– 4228. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following presents the comment received on the NPRM and the FAA’s response to the comment. Request To Revise Compliance Time United Airlines (UAL) requested that we revise the compliance time for DAe Systems units from within ‘‘2,500 flight cycles, or 3,750 flight hours, or 12 months, whichever occurs first, after the effective date of this AD,’’ to within ‘‘5,000 flight cycles, or 7,500 flight hours, or 24 months, whichever occurs first after the effective date of this AD.’’ UAL stated that this would make both units have the same compliance time. UAL explained that it has inspected 97 out of 152 airplanes in compliance with AD 2014–13–12, and due to the new requirements in the NPRM, it will have to re-start the inspection for the entire UAL Model A319/A320 fleet. We do not agree with UAL’s request. As allowed by the phrase ‘‘unless already done’’ in paragraph (f) of this AD, if the inspection required by this AD has already been accomplished, this AD does not require that action to be repeated. The EASA, as the State of Design Authority for Airbus products, has determined this AD’s compliance times based on the overall risk to the fleet, including the severity of the failure and the likelihood of the failure’s occurrence. We are unaware of any information or data that would substantiate the compliance time change that UAL has requested. UAL did not provide any substantiation to support its request. The EASA works closely with Airbus to ensure that all appropriate actions are taken at the appropriate times to mitigate risk to the fleet to meet our collective safety goals. Under the provisions of paragraph (q)(1) of this AD, we will consider requests for approval of an extension of the compliance time if sufficient data are submitted to substantiate that the change would provide an acceptable level of safety. We have not changed this AD in this regard. Conclusion We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 90965 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 B/E AEROSPACE has issued Service Bulletins 1XCXX–0100–35–005 and 22CXX–0100–35–003, both Revision 2, both dated July 10, 2014. The service information describes procedures for replacement of the oxygen generator manifold. These service bulletins are distinct since they apply to different products. 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 22 airplanes of U.S. registry. The actions required by AD 2014–13– 12, and retained in this AD take about 6 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that were required by AD 2014–13–12 is $510 per product. We also estimate that it takes about 6 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $11,220, or $510 per product. 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 E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 90966 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 242 / Friday, December 16, 2016 / Rules and Regulations 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.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-13-12 for 
all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. AD 2014-
13-12 required identifying the part number and serial number of each 
passenger oxygen container, replacing the oxygen generator manifold of 
any affected oxygen container with a serviceable manifold, performing 
an operational check of the manual mask release, and doing corrective 
actions if necessary. This new AD retains the requirements of AD 2014-
13-12, and requires replacing the oxygen generator manifold of any 
affected DAe oxygen container with a serviceable manifold. This AD was 
prompted by reports of silicon particles inside the oxygen generator 
manifolds, which had chafed from the mask hoses during installation 
onto the generator outlets. We are issuing this AD to address the 
unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective January 20, 2017.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of January 20, 
2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede AD 2014-13-12, Amendment 39-17888 (79 FR 45317, 
August 5, 2014) (``AD 2014-13-12''). AD 2014-13-12 applied to all 
Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. The NPRM 
published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2016 (81 FR 14990). The 
NPRM was prompted by reports of silicon particles inside the oxygen 
generator manifolds, which had chafed from the mask hoses during 
installation onto the generator outlets. The NPRM proposed to continue 
to require identifying the part number and

[[Page 90965]]

serial number of each passenger oxygen container, replacing the oxygen 
generator manifold of any affected oxygen container with a serviceable 
manifold, and performing an operational check of the manual mask 
release, and doing corrective actions if necessary. The NPRM also 
proposed to require replacing the oxygen generator manifold of any 
affected DAe oxygen container with a serviceable manifold. We are 
issuing this AD to detect and correct nonserviceable oxygen generator 
manifolds, which could reduce or block the oxygen supply and result in 
injury to passengers when oxygen supply is needed.
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2014-0208, dated September 16, 2014 (referred 
to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition. The MCAI states:

    During production of passenger oxygen containers, the 
manufacturer, B/E Aerospace, detected some silicon particles inside 
the oxygen generator manifolds. Investigation revealed that those 
particles (chips) had chafed from the mask hoses during installation 
onto the generator outlets. It was discovered that a defective mask 
hose installation device had caused the chafing.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could reduce or 
block the oxygen supply, possibly resulting in injury to passengers 
when oxygen supply is needed.
    To address this potential unsafe condition, EASA issued AD 2011-
0167 to require the identification and modification of the affected 
oxygen container assemblies. That [EASA] AD also prohibited the 
installation of the affected containers on any aeroplane as 
replacement parts. It was subsequently established that Models A318-
121 and A318-122 were missing from the Applicability of the [EASA] 
AD, and clarification was necessary regarding the affected 
containers.
    Consequently, EASA issued AD 2012-0083 [which corresponds to FAA 
AD 2014-13-12], retaining the requirements of EASA AD 2011-0167, 
which was superseded, expanded the Applicability by adding two 
aeroplane models, and provided clarity by providing a list of 
affected passenger oxygen containers.
    Since that [EASA] AD was issued, it was found that the affected 
containers have not only been marked with company name B/E 
Aerospace, as was specified, but also, for a brief period, with the 
former company name DAe Systems.
    For the reason described above, this [EASA] AD retains the 
requirements of EASA AD 2012-0083, which is superseded, and expands 
the affected group of containers to include those that have the name 
``DAe Systems'' on the identification plate.
    This [EASA] AD also clearly separates the serial number (s/n) 
groups of containers into those manufactured by B/E Aerospace and 
those manufactured by DAe Systems, for which additional compliance 
time is provided.

    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-
4228.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. The following presents the comment received on the NPRM and 
the FAA's response to the comment.

Request To Revise Compliance Time

    United Airlines (UAL) requested that we revise the compliance time 
for DAe Systems units from within ``2,500 flight cycles, or 3,750 
flight hours, or 12 months, whichever occurs first, after the effective 
date of this AD,'' to within ``5,000 flight cycles, or 7,500 flight 
hours, or 24 months, whichever occurs first after the effective date of 
this AD.'' UAL stated that this would make both units have the same 
compliance time. UAL explained that it has inspected 97 out of 152 
airplanes in compliance with AD 2014-13-12, and due to the new 
requirements in the NPRM, it will have to re-start the inspection for 
the entire UAL Model A319/A320 fleet.
    We do not agree with UAL's request. As allowed by the phrase 
``unless already done'' in paragraph (f) of this AD, if the inspection 
required by this AD has already been accomplished, this AD does not 
require that action to be repeated. The EASA, as the State of Design 
Authority for Airbus products, has determined this AD's compliance 
times based on the overall risk to the fleet, including the severity of 
the failure and the likelihood of the failure's occurrence. We are 
unaware of any information or data that would substantiate the 
compliance time change that UAL has requested. UAL did not provide any 
substantiation to support its request. The EASA works closely with 
Airbus to ensure that all appropriate actions are taken at the 
appropriate times to mitigate risk to the fleet to meet our collective 
safety goals. Under the provisions of paragraph (q)(1) of this AD, we 
will consider requests for approval of an extension of the compliance 
time if sufficient data are submitted to substantiate that the change 
would provide an acceptable level of safety. We have not changed this 
AD in this regard.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, 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

    B/E AEROSPACE has issued Service Bulletins 1XCXX-0100-35-005 and 
22CXX-0100-35-003, both Revision 2, both dated July 10, 2014. The 
service information describes procedures for replacement of the oxygen 
generator manifold. These service bulletins are distinct since they 
apply to different products.
    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 22 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    The actions required by AD 2014-13-12, and retained in this AD take 
about 6 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per 
work-hour. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions 
that were required by AD 2014-13-12 is $510 per product.
    We also estimate that it takes about 6 work-hours per product to 
comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate 
is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of 
this AD on U.S. operators to be $11,220, or $510 per product.

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

[[Page 90966]]

products identified in this rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We determined that this AD will not have federalism implications

0
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]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2014-13-12, Amendment 39-17888 (79 FR 45317, August 5, 2014), and 
adding the following new AD:

2016-25-08 Airbus: Amendment 39-18734; Docket No. FAA-2016-4228; 
Directorate Identifier 2015-NM-107-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective January 20, 2017.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2014-13-12, Amendment 39-17888 (79 FR 45317, 
August 5, 2014) (``AD 2014-13-12'').

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to the Airbus airplanes identified in paragraphs 
(c)(1) through (c)(4) of this AD, certificated in any category, all 
manufacturer serial numbers.
    (1) Model A318-111, -112, -121, and -122 airplanes.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 35, Oxygen.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by reports of silicon particles inside the 
oxygen generator manifolds, which had chafed from the mask hoses 
during installation onto the generator outlets. We are issuing this 
AD to detect and correct nonserviceable oxygen generator manifolds, 
which could reduce or block the oxygen supply and result in injury 
to passengers when oxygen supply is needed.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Retained Part Number and Serial Number Identification, With No 
Changes

    This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (g) of AD 
2014-13-12, with no changes. Within 5,000 flight cycles, or 7,500 
flight hours, or 24 months, whichever occurs first after September 
9, 2014 (the effective date of AD 2014-13-12), identify the part 
number and serial number of each passenger oxygen container. A 
review of airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of this 
identification if the part number and serial number of the oxygen 
container can be conclusively determined from that review.

(h) Retained Replacement, Check, and Repair, With Paragraph (h)(5) and 
Note 1 to Paragraph (h) of AD 2014-13-12 Removed, and Revised Repair
