SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL–600–2B16 (CL–604 Variant) airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of in-service incidents regarding the loss of all air data system information provided to the flightcrew. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to provide ‘‘Unreliable Airspeed’’ procedures to the flightcrew to stabilize the airplane’s airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and landing. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective December 20, 2017. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of December 20, 2017.

SUMMARY: www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2017– 0528; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains this AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Office (telephone 800–647– 5527) is Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M–30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590. 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–600–2B16 (CL–604 Variant) airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on June 5, 2017 (82 FR 25746) (‘‘the NPRM’’). The NPRM was prompted by reports of in-service incidents regarding the loss of all air data system information provided to the flightcrew. The NPRM proposed to require revising the AFM to provide ‘‘Unreliable Airspeed’’ procedures to the flightcrew to stabilize the airplane’s airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and landing. We are issuing this AD to provide the flightcrew with procedures for ‘‘Unreliable Airspeed’’ that stabilize the airplane’s airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and landing. Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2017–01, dated January 6, 2017 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL– 600–2B16 (CL–604 Variant) airplanes. The MCAI states: A number of in-service incidents have been reported on CL–600–2C10 aeroplanes regarding a loss of all air data information provided to the crew. 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 recognized and PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 addressed, this condition may affect continued safe flight and landing. Due to similarities in the air data systems, similar events could happen on Bombardier Inc. CL–600–2B16 aeroplanes. This [Canadian] AD mandates the incorporation of Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM) procedures to guide the crew to stabilize the aeroplanes airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and landing. 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–2017– 0528. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We considered the comment received. Request To Clarify Introduction of ‘‘Unreliable Airspeed’’ AFM Procedures The commenter, Marjolaine Bourget, stated that the ‘‘unreliable airspeed’’ procedures, while provided in the AFM revisions identified in the proposed requirements, were actually introduced in the previous revision of the identified AFMs. From this statement, we infer that the commenter was requesting that we add a statement that the ‘‘unreliable airspeed’’ procedures were introduced in the previous revision of the identified AFMs. The commenter provided no justification for this request. We acknowledge that the ‘‘unreliable airspeed’’ procedures were introduced in an earlier revision of the identified AFMs. We have revised this AD by adding new paragraph (h) to this AD that provides credit to operators for previously completing the actions required by paragraph (g) of this AD if they used the applicable previous AFM revision. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data, considered 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 Bombardier, Inc., has issued Unreliable Airspeed, of Section 03–15, Instruments System, of Chapter 3, Emergency Procedures, of the following AFMs: E:\FR\FM\15NOR1.SGM 15NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 15, 2017 / Rules and Regulations • Bombardier Challenger 604 AFM, Publication No. CH 604 AFM, Revision 103, dated November 28, 2016. • Bombardier Challenger 605 AFM, Publication No. CH 605 AFM, Revision 41, dated November 28, 2016. • Bombardier Challenger 650 AFM, Publication No. CH 650 AFM, Revision 6, dated November 28, 2016. This service information provides revisions to the Emergency Procedures section of the AFM to incorporate a procedure for ‘‘Unreliable Airspeed.’’ These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane configurations. 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 128 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it takes about 1 work-hour 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 $10,880, or $85 per product. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES 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 is issued in accordance with authority delegated by the Executive Director, Aircraft Certification Service, as authorized by FAA Order 8000.51C. In accordance with that order, issuance of ADs is normally a function of the Compliance and Airworthiness Division, but during this transition period, the Executive Director has delegated the authority to issue ADs applicable to transport category 15:48 Nov 14, 2017 Jkt 244001 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Introduction In September 2016, the Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) requested comments on its rule regarding Disposal of Consumer Report Information and Records (‘‘Disposal Rule’’ or ‘‘Rule’’), as part of its comprehensive regulatory review program. Specifically, the Commission sought comments on the Rule’s costs and benefits, and on whether it should modify the Rule to account for changes in technology or information destruction standards. After considering the comments, the Commission has determined to retain the Rule without amendment. Most of the commenters who addressed the issue supported the Rule’s current PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 provisions. A few commenters recommended expanding the Rule’s provisions. Because the Commission has not seen any evidence of problematic acts or practices that any proposed modification would address, it has determined not to amend the Rule at this time. This document provides background, analyzes the comments, and further explains the Commission’s decision. II. Background The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (‘‘FACTA’’ or ‘‘Act’’) was enacted in 2003. In part, the Act amended the Fair Credit Reporting Act (‘‘FCRA’’) by requiring that any person that maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information, or any compilation of consumer information, derived from consumer reports for a business purpose, properly dispose of any such information or compilation. The Act also required the Commission and other federal agencies to promulgate rules regarding the proper disposal of consumer report information and records. Pursuant to the Act’s directive, the Commission promulgated the Disposal Rule in 2004, which became effective on June 1, 2005.1 The Disposal Rule requires that persons over which the FTC has jurisdiction who maintain or otherwise possess consumer information for a business purpose properly dispose of such information by taking reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or use of the information in connection with its disposal. The Rule defines ‘‘consumer information’’ as ‘‘any record about an individual, whether in paper, electronic, or other form, that is a consumer report or is derived from a consumer report. Consumer information also means a compilation of such records. Consumer information does not include information that does not identify individuals, such as aggregate information or blind data.’’ 2 The Rule includes several examples of what the Commission believes constitute reasonable measures to protect consumer information in connection with its disposal, including policies and procedures that require (1) the burning, pulverizing, or shredding of papers or (2) the destruction or erasure of electronic media containing consumer information so that the information cannot practicably be read or reconstructed. These examples are intended to provide covered entities with guidance on how to comply with 1 See 2 See E:\FR\FM\15NOR1.SGM 69 FR 68690 (Nov. 24, 2004); 16 CFR 682. 16 CFR 682.1(b). 15NOR1

requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to provide 
``Unreliable Airspeed'' procedures to the flightcrew to stabilize the 
airplane's airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and landing. 
We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these 
products.

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-600-2B16 (CL-604 Variant) airplanes. The NPRM published in the 
Federal Register on June 5, 2017 (82 FR 25746) (``the NPRM''). The NPRM 
was prompted by reports of in-service incidents regarding the loss of 
all air data system information provided to the flightcrew. The NPRM 
proposed to require revising the AFM to provide ``Unreliable Airspeed'' 
procedures to the flightcrew to stabilize the airplane's airspeed and 
attitude for continued safe flight and landing. We are issuing this AD 
to provide the flightcrew with procedures for ``Unreliable Airspeed'' 
that stabilize the airplane's airspeed and attitude for continued safe 
flight and landing.
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2017-01, dated January 6, 2017 (referred to after this as the Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an 
unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-
604 Variant) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    A number of in-service incidents have been reported on CL-600-
2C10 aeroplanes regarding a loss of all air data information 
provided to the crew. 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 recognized and addressed, this 
condition may affect continued safe flight and landing.
    Due to similarities in the air data systems, similar events 
could happen on Bombardier Inc. CL-600-2B16 aeroplanes.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the incorporation of Aircraft Flight 
Manual (AFM) procedures to guide the crew to stabilize the 
aeroplanes airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and 
landing.

    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-2017-
0528.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We considered the comment received.

Request To Clarify Introduction of ``Unreliable Airspeed'' AFM 
Procedures

    The commenter, Marjolaine Bourget, stated that the ``unreliable 
airspeed'' procedures, while provided in the AFM revisions identified 
in the proposed requirements, were actually introduced in the previous 
revision of the identified AFMs.
    From this statement, we infer that the commenter was requesting 
that we add a statement that the ``unreliable airspeed'' procedures 
were introduced in the previous revision of the identified AFMs. The 
commenter provided no justification for this request. We acknowledge 
that the ``unreliable airspeed'' procedures were introduced in an 
earlier revision of the identified AFMs. We have revised this AD by 
adding new paragraph (h) to this AD that provides credit to operators 
for previously completing the actions required by paragraph (g) of this 
AD if they used the applicable previous AFM revision.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data, considered 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

    Bombardier, Inc., has issued Unreliable Airspeed, of Section 03-15, 
Instruments System, of Chapter 3, Emergency Procedures, of the 
following AFMs:

[[Page 52845]]

     Bombardier Challenger 604 AFM, Publication No. CH 604 AFM, 
Revision 103, dated November 28, 2016.
     Bombardier Challenger 605 AFM, Publication No. CH 605 AFM, 
Revision 41, dated November 28, 2016.
     Bombardier Challenger 650 AFM, Publication No. CH 650 AFM, 
Revision 6, dated November 28, 2016.
    This service information provides revisions to the Emergency 
Procedures section of the AFM to incorporate a procedure for 
``Unreliable Airspeed.'' These documents are distinct since they apply 
to different airplane configurations. 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 128 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it takes about 1 work-hour 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 $10,880, or $85 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 products identified in this 
rulemaking action.
    This AD is issued in accordance with authority delegated by the 
Executive Director, Aircraft Certification Service, as authorized by 
FAA Order 8000.51C. In accordance with that order, issuance of ADs is 
normally a function of the Compliance and Airworthiness Division, but 
during this transition period, the Executive Director has delegated the 
authority to issue ADs applicable to transport category airplanes to 
the Director of the System Oversight Division.

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.
