No. 3776] Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports. DATES: This rule is effective December 4, 2017. The compliance date for each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the amendatory provisions. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of December 4, 2017. ADDRESSES: Availability of matter incorporated by reference in the amendment is as follows: SUMMARY: For Examination 1.

Nichols, Flight Procedure Standards Branch (AFS–420) Flight Technologies and Procedures Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration, Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, 6500 South MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73169 (Mail Address: P.O. Box 25082, Oklahoma City, OK 73125) telephone: (405) 954–4164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97) by amending the referenced SIAPs. The complete regulatory description of each SIAP is listed on the appropriate FAA Form 8260, as modified by the National Flight Data Center (NFDC)/Permanent Notice to Airmen (P–NOTAM), and is incorporated by reference under 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 14 CFR 97.20. The large number of SIAPs, their complex nature, and the need for a special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the complete description of each SIAP contained on FAA form documents is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR sections, and specifies the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs with their applicable effective dates. This amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the procedure and the amendment number. AIRAC date State Availability and Summary of Material Incorporated by Reference The material incorporated by reference is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section. The material incorporated by reference describes SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs as identified in the amendatory language for part 97 of this final rule. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as amended in the transmittal. For safety and timeliness of change considerations, this amendment incorporates only specific changes contained for each SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as modified by FDC permanent NOTAMs. The SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, as modified by FDC permanent NOTAM, and contained in this amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific conditions existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in this rule have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC NOTAM as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances that created the need for these SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP amendments require making them effective in less than 30 days. Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where applicable, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d), good cause exists for making these SIAPs effective in less than 30 days. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are City Airport FDC No. necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore—(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); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. For the same reason, the FAA certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

ACTION: Direct final rule. AGENCY: Section 106 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) made ASTM F963–07e1, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety, a mandatory consumer product safety standard. That section also provides procedures for revisions to the standard. In accordance with these procedures, the Commission (CPSC or Commission) recently allowed the update to ASTM F963, ASTM F963–17, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety (ASTM F963–17), to become the mandatory toy standard, with one exception. This direct final rule incorporates by reference ASTM F963– 17, with one exception, and updates the existing notice of requirements (NOR) that provides the criteria and process for Commission acceptance of accreditation of third party conformity assessment bodies for testing for ASTM F963 pursuant to the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). DATES: The rule is effective on February 28, 2018, unless we receive significant adverse comment by January 3, 2018. If we receive timely significant adverse comment, we will publish notification in the Federal Register, withdrawing this direct final rule before its effective date.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background Section 106 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. Section 106(a) of the CPSIA mandated that beginning on February 10, 2009, ASTM F 963–07e1, Standard Consumer Safety Specifications for Toy Safety, 1 shall be considered a mandatory consumer product safety standard issued by the CPSC.

Currently, the provisions of ASTM F 963–16 are considered consumer product safety standards issued by the Commission under section 9 of the CPSA. Under section 106(g) of the CPSIA, if ASTM proposes revisions to ASTM F963, ASTM must notify the Commission. The revised standard shall be considered to be a consumer product safety standard issued by the CPSC under section 9 of the CPSA (15 U.S.C. 2058), effective 180 days after the date on which ASTM notifies the Commission of the revision, unless, within 90 days after receiving that notice, the Commission notifies ASTM that it has determined that the proposed revision does not improve the safety of toys. Codification of Safety Standard Mandating ASTM F963 for Toys. As stated above, the CPSIA mandated provisions of ASTM F963 as a consumer product safety standard. Because this action took place by statute, the standard did not appear in the Code of Federal Regulations. On February 2, 2017, the Commission published a direct final rule notifying the public that the Commission had allowed ASTM F963–16 to become the new CPSC standard and also incorporated that standard by reference at 16 CFR part 1250. 82 FR 8989. Thus, when revisions of F963 become the new CPSC standard, the Commission will amend 16 CFR part 1250 to revise the reference to the ASTM standard. As explained below, the Commission is amending 16 CFR part 1250 to incorporate by reference ASTM F963–17, except for one provision.2 Notification of Revisions. On September 1, 2017, ASTM notified the CPSC of ASTM’s approval and publication of revisions to ASTM F963– 17 in a revised standard approved on May 1, 2017, ASTM F963–17, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety. On November 27, 2017, the Commission voted 3 to allow the 2 16 CFR part 1250 continues to exclude from CPSC’s mandatory standard certain provisions of ASTM F963 that the CPSIA excluded by statute. 3 The Commission voted 3–1 to publish this direct final rule in the Federal Register.

14 CFR Part 97

[Docket No. 31167; Amdt. No. 3776]


Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and 
Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument 
Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and 
Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These 
regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised 
criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace 
System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, 
adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These 
changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the 
navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under 
instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

DATES: This rule is effective December 4, 2017. The compliance date for 
each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the 
amendatory provisions.
    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in 
the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as 
of December 4, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    This rule amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 97 (14 
CFR part 97) by amending the referenced SIAPs. The complete regulatory 
description of each SIAP is listed on the appropriate FAA Form 8260, as 
modified by the National Flight Data Center (NFDC)/Permanent Notice to 
Airmen (P-NOTAM), and is incorporated by reference under 5 U.S.C. 
552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 14 CFR 97.20. The large number of SIAPs, 
their complex nature, and the need for a special format make their 
verbatim publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. 
Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, but refer 
to their graphic depiction on charts printed by publishers of 
aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by 
reference are realized and publication of the complete description of 
each SIAP contained on FAA form documents is unnecessary. This 
amendment provides the affected CFR sections, and specifies the SIAPs 
and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs with their applicable effective dates. 
This amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the 
procedure and the amendment number.

Availability and Summary of Material Incorporated by Reference

    The material incorporated by reference is publicly available as 
listed in the ADDRESSES section.
    The material incorporated by reference describes SIAPs, Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPs as identified in the amendatory language for part 97 
of this final rule.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of 
each separate SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as amended in the 
transmittal. For safety and timeliness of change considerations, this 
amendment incorporates only specific changes contained for each SIAP 
and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as modified by FDC permanent NOTAMs.
    The SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, as modified by FDC 
permanent NOTAM, and contained in this amendment are based on the 
criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument 
Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to SIAPs and Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific 
conditions existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in 
this rule have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC NOTAM as an 
emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to 
published aeronautical charts.
    The circumstances that created the need for these SIAP and Takeoff 
Minimums and ODP amendments require making them effective in less than 
30 days.
    Because of the close and immediate relationship between these 
SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find 
that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where 
applicable, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d), good cause exists for making these 
SIAPs effective in less than 30 days.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
It, therefore--(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); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
