In Supplement I to part 1030, under Section 1030.7—Payment of Interest, paragraph 7(c)—Date interest begins to accrue is revised to read as follows: ■ Supplement I to Part 1030—Official Interpretations * * * * * Section 1030.7—Payment of Interest * * * * * (c) Date interest begins to accrue. 1. Relation to Regulation CC. Institutions may rely on the Expedited Funds Availability Act (EFAA) and Regulation CC (12 CFR part 229) to determine, for example, when a deposit is considered made for purposes of interest accrual, or when interest need not be paid on funds because a deposited check is later returned unpaid. 2. Ledger and collected balances. Institutions may calculate interest by using a ‘‘ledger’’ or ‘‘collected’’ balance method, as long as the crediting requirements of the EFAA are met (12 CFR 229.14). 3. Withdrawal of principal. Institutions must accrue interest on funds until the funds are withdrawn from the account. For example, if a check is debited to an account on a Tuesday, the institution must accrue interest on those funds through Monday. By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, November 19, 2018. Ann E. Misback, Secretary of the Board. Dated: September 20, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposal. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA– 2018–1005; Product Identifier 2018– NM–109–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this proposed AD based on those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. Discussion We issued AD 2016–16–01, Amendment 39–18599 (81 FR 51325, August 4, 2016) (corrected September 1, 2016 (81 FR 60246)) (‘‘AD 2016–16– 01’’), for certain Airbus SAS Model A330–200 Freighter, –200, and –300 series airplanes. AD 2016–16–01 requires an inspection of affected structural parts in the cargo and cabin compartments to determine if proper heat treatment has been done, and replacement or repair if necessary. AD 2016–16–01 was prompted by a report of a manufacturing defect that affects the durability of affected parts in the cargo and cabin compartment. We issued AD 2016–16–01 to address crack initiation and propagation in structural parts of the cargo and cabin compartments, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage. Actions Since AD 2016–16–01 Was Issued Since we issued AD 2016–16–01, we have determined that additional affected parts in the cabin compartment structure must also be inspected. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 2018–0147, dated July 13, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Model A330–200 Freighter, –200, and –300 series airplanes. The MCAI states: E:\FR\FM\10DEP1.SGM 10DEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 236 / Monday, December 10, 2018 / Proposed Rules It was determined that several structural parts, intended for cargo or cabin compartment installation, were manufactured from improperly heat-treated materials. A subsequent review identified that some of those parts were installed on aeroplanes manufactured between November 2011 and February 2013. Consequently, Airbus implemented measures into manufacturing processes to ensure detection and to prevent further installation of such non-conforming parts. A detailed safety assessment was accomplished to identify the possible impact of these parts on the aeroplane structure. The result of this structural analysis demonstrated the capability of the affected structure to sustain static limit loads, but failed to confirm that the affected structures meet the certified fatigue life. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to crack initiation and propagation, possibly resulting in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage. To address this unsafe condition, Airbus published the applicable SBs [service bulletins] to provide inspection instructions for affected structural cargo and cabin parts, respectively. Consequently, EASA issued AD 2015–0212 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2016–16–01] to require a one-time special detailed inspection (SDI) [eddy current inspection] to measure the electrical conductivity of affected parts, to identify the presence or absence of heat treatment, and, depending on findings, applicable corrective action(s) [replacement or repair]. Since that AD was issued, Airbus identified that some additional affected parts, located in the cabin compartment structure, have been missed and need to be inspected. Consequently, Airbus issued SB A330–53– 3228 Revision 01 to introduce the locations of those missed structural parts to be inspected. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD retains the requirements of EASA AD 2015–0212, which is superseded, and expands the number and locations of structural parts to be inspected. 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–2018– 1005. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Airbus has issued Service Bulletin A330–53–3227, Revision 02, dated July 25, 2018, which describes procedures for inspecting affected structural parts in the cargo compartment to determine if proper heat treatment has been done, and replacing discrepant parts. Airbus has also issued Service Bulletin A330–53–3228, Revision 01, dated April 11, 2018, which describes procedures for inspecting affected structural parts in the cabin compartment to determine if proper heat treatment has been done, doing additional work (inspecting additional locations of the cabin compartment structure), and doing related investigative and corrective actions. Related investigative actions include an eddy current inspection to verify the measurement from the inspection to determine if proper heat treatment has been done. Corrective actions include replacing discrepant parts. 63445 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. FAA’s Determination This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Proposed Requirements of This NPRM This proposed AD would retain all of the requirements of AD 2016–16–01. This proposed AD would also require accomplishing the additional work specified in Airbus Service Bulletin A330–53–3228, Revision 01, dated April 11, 2018, described previously. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 20 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: ESTIMATED COSTS FOR REQUIRED ACTIONS Cost per product Labor cost Retained actions from AD 2016–16–01. New proposed additional work 11 work-hours × $85 per hour = $935 ................................... $0 $935 $18,700 5 work-hours × $85 per hour = $425 ..................................... 0 425 8,500 We estimate the following costs to do any necessary on-condition action that would be required based on the results Parts cost Cost on U.S. operators Actions of any required actions. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need this on-condition action: ESTIMATED COSTS OF ON-CONDITION ACTION Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product 45 work-hours × $85 per hour = $3,825 ................................................................................................................. $0 * $3,825 * We have received no definitive data on the parts cost for the on-condition action. According to the manufacturer, some or all of the costs of this proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:39 Dec 07, 2018 Jkt 247001 result, we have included all known costs in our cost estimate. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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, E:\FR\FM\10DEP1.SGM 10DEP1 63446 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 236 / Monday, December 10, 2018 / Proposed Rules 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 proposed 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 and associated appliances to the Director of the System Oversight Division. Regulatory Findings We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 this proposed regulation: 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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

SUMMARY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-16-
01, which applies to certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, 
and -300 series airplanes. AD 2016-16-01 requires an inspection of 
affected structural parts in the cargo and cabin compartments to 
determine if proper heat treatment has been done, and replacement or 
repair if necessary. Since we issued AD 2016-16-01, we have determined 
that additional affected parts in the cabin compartment structure must 
also be inspected. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 
2016-16-01 and require inspection of additional locations of the cabin 
compartment structure. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe 
condition on these products.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by January 24, 
2019.

Discussion

    We issued AD 2016-16-01, Amendment 39-18599 (81 FR 51325, August 4, 
2016) (corrected September 1, 2016 (81 FR 60246)) (``AD 2016-16-01''), 
for certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, and -300 series 
airplanes. AD 2016-16-01 requires an inspection of affected structural 
parts in the cargo and cabin compartments to determine if proper heat 
treatment has been done, and replacement or repair if necessary. AD 
2016-16-01 was prompted by a report of a manufacturing defect that 
affects the durability of affected parts in the cargo and cabin 
compartment. We issued AD 2016-16-01 to address crack initiation and 
propagation in structural parts of the cargo and cabin compartments, 
which could result in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage.

Actions Since AD 2016-16-01 Was Issued

    Since we issued AD 2016-16-01, we have determined that additional 
affected parts in the cabin compartment structure must also be 
inspected.
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 
2018-0147, dated July 13, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an 
unsafe condition for certain Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, and -300 
series airplanes. The MCAI states:


[[Page 63445]]


    It was determined that several structural parts, intended for 
cargo or cabin compartment installation, were manufactured from 
improperly heat-treated materials. A subsequent review identified 
that some of those parts were installed on aeroplanes manufactured 
between November 2011 and February 2013. Consequently, Airbus 
implemented measures into manufacturing processes to ensure 
detection and to prevent further installation of such non-conforming 
parts. A detailed safety assessment was accomplished to identify the 
possible impact of these parts on the aeroplane structure. The 
result of this structural analysis demonstrated the capability of 
the affected structure to sustain static limit loads, but failed to 
confirm that the affected structures meet the certified fatigue 
life.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to 
crack initiation and propagation, possibly resulting in reduced 
structural integrity of the fuselage.
    To address this unsafe condition, Airbus published the 
applicable SBs [service bulletins] to provide inspection 
instructions for affected structural cargo and cabin parts, 
respectively. Consequently, EASA issued AD 2015-0212 [which 
corresponds to FAA AD 2016-16-01] to require a one-time special 
detailed inspection (SDI) [eddy current inspection] to measure the 
electrical conductivity of affected parts, to identify the presence 
or absence of heat treatment, and, depending on findings, applicable 
corrective action(s) [replacement or repair].
    Since that AD was issued, Airbus identified that some additional 
affected parts, located in the cabin compartment structure, have 
been missed and need to be inspected. Consequently, Airbus issued SB 
A330-53-3228 Revision 01 to introduce the locations of those missed 
structural parts to be inspected.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD retains the 
requirements of EASA AD 2015-0212, which is superseded, and expands 
the number and locations of structural parts to be inspected.

    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-2018-
1005.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Airbus has issued Service Bulletin A330-53-3227, Revision 02, dated 
July 25, 2018, which describes procedures for inspecting affected 
structural parts in the cargo compartment to determine if proper heat 
treatment has been done, and replacing discrepant parts.
    Airbus has also issued Service Bulletin A330-53-3228, Revision 01, 
dated April 11, 2018, which describes procedures for inspecting 
affected structural parts in the cabin compartment to determine if 
proper heat treatment has been done, doing additional work (inspecting 
additional locations of the cabin compartment structure), and doing 
related investigative and corrective actions. Related investigative 
actions include an eddy current inspection to verify the measurement 
from the inspection to determine if proper heat treatment has been 
done. Corrective actions include replacing discrepant parts.
    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.

FAA's Determination

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we 
evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe 
condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other 
products of the same type design.

Proposed Requirements of This NPRM

    This proposed AD would retain all of the requirements of AD 2016-
16-01. This proposed AD would also require accomplishing the additional 
work specified in Airbus Service Bulletin A330-53-3228, Revision 01, 
dated April 11, 2018, described previously.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 20 airplanes of U.S. 
registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed 
AD:

                                      Estimated Costs for Required Actions
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                     Cost per      Cost on U.S.
              Actions                         Labor cost            Parts cost        product        operators
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Retained actions from AD 2016-16-01  11 work-hours x $85 per                  $0            $935         $18,700
                                      hour = $935.
New proposed additional work.......  5 work-hours x $85 per hour               0             425           8,500
                                      = $425.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We estimate the following costs to do any necessary on-condition 
action that would be required based on the results of any required 
actions. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that 
might need this on-condition action:

                 Estimated Costs of On-Condition Action
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Cost per
              Labor cost                   Parts cost        product
------------------------------------------------------------------------
45 work-hours x $85 per hour = $3,825.            $0 *           $3,825
------------------------------------------------------------------------
* We have received no definitive data on the parts cost for the on-
  condition action.

    According to the manufacturer, some or all of the costs of this 
proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost 
impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for 
affected individuals. As a result, we have included all known costs in 
our cost estimate.

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,

[[Page 63446]]

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 proposed 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 and associated appliances to the 
Director of the System Oversight Division.

Regulatory Findings

    We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 this proposed 
regulation:
    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.
