(e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations (AWLs) are necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to address inadequate AWL and damage tolerance rating (DTR) values in the maintenance or inspection program that reduce the probability of detection for foreseeable fatigue cracking of structurally significant items (SSIs). This condition, if not addressed, could result in the loss of limit load capability of an SSI as well as loss of continued safe flight and landing of the airplane. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Maintenance or Inspection Program Revision Within 24 months after the effective date of this AD, revise the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the information specified in Boeing 767–200/300/300F/400ER Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs), D622T001–9–01, dated June 2019; and Boeing 767–200/300/300F/400ER Damage Tolerance Rating (DTR) Check Form Document, D622T001–DTR, dated June 2019. Except as specified in paragraph (h) of this AD, the initial compliance time for doing the tasks is at the time specified in Boeing 767– 200/300/300F/400ER Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs), D622T001–9–01, dated June 2019; and Boeing 767–200/300/300F/ 400ER Damage Tolerance Rating (DTR) Check Form Document, D622T001–DTR, dated June 2019; or within 24 months after the effective date of this AD; whichever occurs later. (h) Exceptions (1) Where Boeing 767–200/300/300F/ 400ER Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs), D622T001–9–01, dated June 2019, specifies compliance times (‘‘thresholds’’) for wing tank sealant removal and ensuring sealant location limits are met, these actions must be accomplished within the compliance times specified in Boeing 767–200/300/300F/ 400ER Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs), D622T001–9–01, dated June 2019; or at the next wing tank entry, but no later than 6 years after the effective date of this AD; whichever occurs later. (2) For any horizontal stabilizer pivot fitting lug (SSI 55–10–I13A), on which a lug bore oversize repair has been accomplished, obtain revised inspection intervals in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (l) of this AD. (3) Where Boeing 767–200/300/300F/ 400ER Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs), D622T001–9–01, dated June 2019; and Boeing 767–200/300/300F/400ER Damage Tolerance Rating (DTR) Check Form Document, D622T001–DTR, dated June 2019; specify to submit reports within 10 days, those reports may be submitted within 10 days after the airplane is returned to service. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:23 Nov 06, 2019 Jkt 250001 (i) No Alternative Actions or Intervals After the existing maintenance or inspection program has been revised as required by paragraph (g) of this AD, no alternative actions (e.g., inspections) or intervals may be used unless the actions or intervals are approved as an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (l) of this AD. (j) Terminating Action for AD 2014–14–04 Accomplishing the actions required by this AD terminates all requirements of AD 2014– 14–04. (k) Paperwork Reduction Act Burden Statement A federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act unless that collection of information displays a current valid OMB Control Number.

To be approved, the repair method, modification deviation, or alteration deviation must meet the certification basis of the airplane, and the approval must specifically refer to this AD.
