Download as PDF 17220 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 75 / Wednesday, April 18, 2018 / Notices Section 106 consultation, (4) missing or incorrect documentation for fiscal constraint (for several levels of documents including Type 1 CEs); (5) missing environmental commitments identified in technical reports, and commitments not carried forward in reevaluations; (6) missing Section 4(f) impacts/avoidance analysis; (7) missing documentation to support floodplain effects finding; (8) missing documentation to support the wetlands finding; 9) missing documentation for Essential Fish Habitat consideration; (10) missing documentation of community and other resources impacts when addressing ROW changes; and (11) missing documentation of water quality considerations. The FDOT has informed the Review Team that they have implemented some corrective actions to address missing documentation. The FDOT staff interviews revealed that the SWEPT system was updated to include a control to not allow a project file review to be completed without uploading all supporting documentation. The FDOT believes that this system improvement will ensure that supporting documentation, that was sometimes missing as SWEPT was initially implemented would now be present prior to an approval point. The implementation of these improvements was incorporated after the audit project file review time frame. Next Steps The FHWA provided a draft of the audit report to FDOT for a 14-day review and comment period, later extended to 21-days due to the holidays occurring during the review period. The Audit Team considered FDOT’s comments in this draft audit report. The FHWA will publish a notice in the Federal Register for a 30-day comment period in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 327(g). No later than 60 days after the close of the comment period, FHWA will address all comments submitted to finalize this draft audit report pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327(g)(B). Subsequently, FHWA will publish the final audit report in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B), a motor vehicle that was not originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided its safety features comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence that NHTSA decides to be adequate. Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the close of the comment period, PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NHTSA decides, on the basis of the petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in the Federal Register. US Specs, of Havre de Grace, Maryland (‘‘US Specs’’) (Registered Importer No. RI–03–321), petitioned NHTSA to decide whether MY 2000 East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses (with Volvo B7L Chassis) are eligible for importation into the United States. NHTSA published a notice of the petition on January 26, 2015 (80 FR 4033) to afford an opportunity for public comment. No comments were received. The reader is referred to that notice for a thorough description of the petition. A decision granting the referenced petition was published on August 25, 2015 (80 FR 46645). Under the decision, certain MY 2000 East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses (with Volvo B7L Chassis) were determined eligible for importation into the United States. Import eligibility decisions are made on a make, model, and model year basis, typically in response to petitions submitted by a RI. As specified in 49 CFR 593.6(b)(1), the petitioning RI must, among other things, identify the model year and model of the vehicle for which import eligibility is sought. In its petition, US Specs identified the subject vehicle as a MY 2000 East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses, built on a Volvo B7L Chassis. At time of submission, there was no reason for NHTSA to question this identification of the vehicle. It has since come to the agency’s attention that manufacturing operations on the subject vehicle were completed in calendar year 2001, the same year in which the bus entered service. Absent a model year designation from the manufacturer or the vehicle’s country of origin, the year in which manufacturing operations are completed on the vehicle serves as the vehicle’s model year, as that term is defined in 49 CFR 593.4. Correction Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA hereby corrects the decision granting import eligibility to MY 2000 East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses (mounted on a Volvo B7L Chassis) to identify the subject vehicles as the MY 2001 version.

Title: Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel. Type of Review: Renewal of information collections. Background: This notice covers two information collection requirements in the Department’s Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) implementing regulation, 14 CFR part 382 (part 382), Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel. Specifically, pursuant to section 382.43(d), covered carriers must provide an online mechanism for passengers to request disability accommodation services (e.g., enplaning/deplaning assistance, deaf/ hard of hearing communication assistance, escort to service animal relief area, etc.) for a particular flight. Pursuant to section 382.43(e), covered carriers must also ensure that when a user activates a link on a carrier’s primary website to embedded thirdparty software or to an external website, a disclaimer is displayed notifying the user that the application or website may not be accessible. These requirements became effective on December 12, 2015, and December 12, 2016, respectively. Covered carriers are U.S. and foreign air carriers that operate at least one aircraft having a designed seating capacity of more than 60 passengers and own or control a primary website that markets passenger air transportation or a tour, or tour component that must be purchased with air transportation, to the general public in the United States.1 1 While there are approximately 190 U.S. and foreign air carriers that conduct passenger-carrying service to, from, or in the United States with at least one aircraft having a designed seating capacity of more than 60 seats, not all of those carriers have a primary website that markets passenger air transportation to the general public in the U.S. The Department estimates that approximately 165 of those 190 carriers are subject to the Department’s web-accessibility requirements as they operate such aircraft and have a primary website that markets to U.S. consumers. PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17221 The title, a description of the information collection and respondents, and the periodic reporting burden are set forth below for each of the information collections: 1. Requirement to make a disability accommodation service request function available on the primary website. (14 CFR 382.43(d)). Each covered carrier must provide a mechanism on its website for passengers to request a disability accommodation service for a future flight and provide advance notice of their request. Carriers may, but need not, require passengers to include contact information on the form in order to follow-up and request more specific information about the passengers’ accommodation needs. Carriers may also use the aggregate data from the online service requests to understand and better plan for the volume and types of service requests they receive across time periods and routes, but also are not required to do so. While the content and design of the online service request form is up to the carriers, the Department anticipates that each covered U.S. and foreign carrier that markets scheduled air transportation to the general public in the United States would incur initial costs associated with developing and reviewing a design and implementation plan for the request form, developing, coding, and integrating the form into the website, as well as testing, debugging, and connecting the form with a backend database to store the information. The final regulatory analysis (FRA) for the final rule entitled Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel: Accessibility of Websites and Automated Kiosks at U.S. Airports estimated that it will take an average of 32 labor hours per carrier to develop, implement, integrate, connect, and test the online request form. Initial costs are reduced for carriers that rely on a request form developed by another entity. There are no recordkeeping or reporting requirements. However, carriers should use the service request information to facilitate appropriate, timely assistance to their passengers. Respondents: Certificated U.S. and foreign air carriers operating to, from, and within the United States that operate at least one aircraft having a seating capacity of more than 60 passengers and own or control a primary website that markets air transportation to the general public in the U.S. Estimated Number of Respondents: 165 U.S. and foreign carriers, of which the Department expects all to have achieved compliance with the requirement in a prior year.

Correction to Decision That Nonconforming Model Year 2000 East 
Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle Buses (With 
Volvo B7L Chassis) Are Eligible for Importation

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 
Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Correction to previous import eligibility decision.

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

SUMMARY: NHTSA is correcting an error made in its decision that certain 
model year (MY) 2000 East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double 
Decker Tri-Axle buses (with Volvo B7L Chassis) that were not originally 
manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety 
Standards (FMVSS) are eligible for importation into the United States 
because they have safety features that comply with, or are capable of 
being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS. The correction is 
being made to properly identify the subject vehicles as MY 2001 models.

DATES: The original eligibility decision became effective on July 30, 
2015. The correction is effective as of April 8, 2018, and applies to 
any vehicle that may have been previously imported under the original 
eligibility decision.

ADDRESSES: For further information contact George Stevens, Office of 
Vehicle Safety Compliance, NHTSA (202-366-5308).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B), a motor vehicle that was not 
originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be 
refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided its 
safety features comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply 
with, all applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other 
evidence that NHTSA decides to be adequate.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    US Specs, of Havre de Grace, Maryland (``US Specs'') (Registered 
Importer No. RI-03-321), petitioned NHTSA to decide whether MY 2000 
East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses 
(with Volvo B7L Chassis) are eligible for importation into the United 
States. NHTSA published a notice of the petition on January 26, 2015 
(80 FR 4033) to afford an opportunity for public comment. No comments 
were received. The reader is referred to that notice for a thorough 
description of the petition.
    A decision granting the referenced petition was published on August 
25, 2015 (80 FR 46645). Under the decision, certain MY 2000 East 
Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses (with 
Volvo B7L Chassis) were determined eligible for importation into the 
United States.
    Import eligibility decisions are made on a make, model, and model 
year basis, typically in response to petitions submitted by a RI. As 
specified in 49 CFR 593.6(b)(1), the petitioning RI must, among other 
things, identify the model year and model of the vehicle for which 
import eligibility is sought.
    In its petition, US Specs identified the subject vehicle as a MY 
2000 East Lancashire Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle 
buses, built on a Volvo B7L Chassis. At time of submission, there was 
no reason for NHTSA to question this identification of the vehicle.
    It has since come to the agency's attention that manufacturing 
operations on the subject vehicle were completed in calendar year 2001, 
the same year in which the bus entered service. Absent a model year 
designation from the manufacturer or the vehicle's country of origin, 
the year in which manufacturing operations are completed on the vehicle 
serves as the vehicle's model year, as that term is defined in 49 CFR 
593.4.

Correction

    Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA hereby corrects 
the decision granting import eligibility to MY 2000 East Lancashire 
Coachbuilders Limited Double Decker Tri-Axle buses (mounted on a Volvo 
B7L Chassis) to identify the subject vehicles as the MY 2001 version.
    Conditions for importation of vehicles eligible under this 
corrected decision remain as outlined in the original decision. The 
importer of a vehicle

[[Page 17221]]

admissible under any final decision must indicate on the form HS-7 
accompanying entry the appropriate vehicle eligibility number 
indicating that the vehicle is eligible for entry. VCP-59, the vehicle 
eligibility number assigned to vehicles admissible under the original 
decision, remains as the eligibility number for vehicles admissible 
under the decision as corrected in this notice.
