Discussion Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF–2018–03, dated January 19, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Model CL–600– 2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440); Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702); Model CL–600– 2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705); Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900); and Model CL–600–2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. The MCAI states: After an in-service cabin oxygen masks deployment on a CL–600–2D24 aeroplane, the crew noted that the forward and aft flight attendant oxygen masks did not deploy correctly. The oxygen hoses were tangled with the pull lanyard and cordage from the oxygen box assemblies. Investigation found the same condition on other aeroplanes. The similarly designed lavatory oxygen box assembly is also affected. It was determined that packing instructions for these oxygen box assemblies were incorrect. If not corrected, inappropriately packed oxygen box assemblies resulting in incorrectly deployed oxygen masks can cause occupant distress and delayed access to oxygen supply during a high altitude emergency. This [Canadian] AD mandates the repacking of the forward flight attendant, aft flight attendant, and lavatory oxygen box assemblies [as applicable] and the installation of a revised packaging placard. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the internet at https:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2019– 0327. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier has issued the following service information: • Service Bulletin 601R–35–021, dated October 30, 2017, which describes procedures for repacking the lavatory oxygen box assembly, replacing the placards, and re-identifying the assembly. • Service Bulletin 670BA–35–015, dated October 30, 2017, which describes procedures for repacking the flight attendant and lavatory oxygen box assemblies, replacing the placards, and re-identifying the assemblies. E:\FR\FM\11JNP1.SGM 11JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 11, 2019 / Proposed Rules 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. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. 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 27043 Proposed Requirements of This NPRM This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 539 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: ESTIMATED COSTS FOR REQUIRED ACTIONS Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Cost on U.S. operators 5 work-hours × $85 per hour = $425 .......................................................................................... $100 $525 $282,975 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. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with PROPOSALS 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 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:27 Jun 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 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. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2.

Series 900); and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) 
airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of incorrect 
deployment of forward and aft flight attendant oxygen masks. This 
proposed AD would require repacking the flight attendant and lavatory 
oxygen box assemblies as applicable, replacing the placards, and re-
identifying the assemblies. We are proposing this AD to address the 
unsafe condition on these products.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF-2018-03, dated January 
19, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing 
Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe 
condition for certain Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 
440); Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702); Model CL-
600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705); Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet 
Series 900); and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) 
airplanes. The MCAI states:

    After an in-service cabin oxygen masks deployment on a CL-600-
2D24 aeroplane, the crew noted that the forward and aft flight 
attendant oxygen masks did not deploy correctly. The oxygen hoses 
were tangled with the pull lanyard and cordage from the oxygen box 
assemblies. Investigation found the same condition on other 
aeroplanes. The similarly designed lavatory oxygen box assembly is 
also affected. It was determined that packing instructions for these 
oxygen box assemblies were incorrect. If not corrected, 
inappropriately packed oxygen box assemblies resulting in 
incorrectly deployed oxygen masks can cause occupant distress and 
delayed access to oxygen supply during a high altitude emergency.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the repacking of the forward flight 
attendant, aft flight attendant, and lavatory oxygen box assemblies 
[as applicable] and the installation of a revised packaging placard.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the internet at https://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2019-
0327.

    These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane 
models. 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 require accomplishing the actions specified 
in the service information described previously.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 539 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.
                          Labor cost                              Parts cost        product         operators
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5 work-hours x $85 per hour = $425...........................            $100             $525         $282,975
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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, 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
