ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: This action proposes to amend the following Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L. The FAA found an error with the Offshore Airspace Legal Descriptions containing airspace descriptions not related to the need to apply IFR en route Air Traffic Control services in international airspace. This action would correct that error by removing terminal airspace, airspace associated with geographic coordinates, and airspace associated with NAVAIDs from the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. 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. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would modify the route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace System. Comments Invited Interested parties are invited to participate in this proposed rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, environmental, and energy-related aspects of the proposal. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Sep 18, 2020 Jkt 250001 Communications should identify both docket numbers (FAA Docket No. FAA– 2020–0823; Airspace Docket No. 20– AAL–49) and be submitted in triplicate to the Docket Management Facility (see ADDRESSES section for address and phone number). You may also submit comments through the internet at https://www.regulations.gov. Commenters wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments on this action must submit with those comments a self-addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: ‘‘Comments to FAA Docket No. FAA–2020–0823; Airspace Docket No. 20–AAL–49.’’ The postcard will be date/time stamped and returned to the commenter. All communications received on or before the specified comment closing date will be considered before taking action on the proposed rule. The proposal contained in this action may be changed in light of comments received. All comments submitted will be available for examination in the public docket both before and after the comment closing date. A report summarizing each substantive public contact with FAA personnel concerned with this rulemaking will be filed in the docket. 59221 Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Availability of NPRMs An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded through the internet at https://www.regulations.gov. Recently published rulemaking documents can also be accessed through the FAA’s web page at https:// www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/ airspace_amendments/. You may review the public docket containing the proposal, any comments received and any final disposition in person in the Dockets Office (see ADDRESSES section for address and phone number) between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except federal holidays. An informal docket may also be examined during normal business hours at the office of the Western Service Center, Operations Support Group, Federal Aviation Administration, 2200 South 216th St., Des Moines, WA 98198. Background A final rule was published in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA– 2006–25852 under Airspace Docket No. 06–AAL–29 (72 FR 31714; June 8, 2007; as corrected 72 FR 37430, July 10, 2007), this action amended the following offshore airspace areas: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska, to include terminal airspace previously thought to be excluded in the Code of Federal Regulations. The exclusionary language was misinterpreted including all airspace West of Longitude 160°. The FAA found this interpretation to be in error as the exclusion only pertains to the area West of Longitude 160° for the Alaska Peninsula. The Alaska Peninsula does not include the Aleutian Islands nor preclude the establishment of airspace under CFR 71.71(c). This action proposes to correct this error and reverse the final rule. Offshore Airspace areas are reserved for those areas that extend from the Territorial Zone to the Flight Information Region boundary, in international airspace, where it is necessary to apply domestic airspace rules. The FAA also published a final rule in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA–2006–26164 under Airspace Docket No. 06–AAL–34 (72 FR 5611; February 7, 2007). This action revoked the Class E Airspace for Adak, Atka, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK as it was thought that because these locations were within Control 1234L they should be contained in the offshore airspace description. This was in error as offshore airspace cannot be established within 12 nautical miles of a coastline of the United States (U.S.). This action would also correct that error. This proposed technical amendment would separate Offshore Airspace and terminal class E airspace to provide pilots with an accurate legal description in the appropriate sections of the regulation. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 12, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020.

ICAO Considerations As part of this proposal relates to navigable airspace outside the U.S. this notice is submitted in accordance with the International Civil Aviation PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 59223 Organization (ICAO) International Standards and Recommended Practices. The application of International Standards and Recommended Practices by the FAA, Office of Policy, Rules and Regulations Group, in areas outside the U.S. domestic airspace, is governed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation. Specifically, the FAA is governed by Article 12 and Annex 11, which pertain to the establishment of necessary air navigational facilities and services to promote the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of civil air traffic. The purpose of Article 12 and Annex 11 is to ensure that civil aircraft operations on international air routes are performed under uniform conditions. The International Standards and Recommended Practices in Annex 11 apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a contracting state, derived from ICAO. Annex 11 provisions apply when air traffic services are provided and a contracting state accepts the responsibility of providing air traffic services over high seas or in airspace of undetermined sovereignty. A contracting state accepting this responsibility may apply the International Standards and Recommended Practices that are consistent with standards and practices utilized in its domestic jurisdiction. In accordance with Article 3 of the convention, state-owned aircraft are exempt from the Standards and Recommended Practices of Annex 11. The United States is a contracting state to the Convention. Article 3(d) of the Convention provides that participating state aircraft will be operated in international airspace with due regard for the safety of civil aircraft. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 Department of Transportation (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. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. The Prescreen Opt-Out Notice Rule Section 615(d) of the FCRA 1 requires that any person who uses a consumer report in order to make an unsolicited firm offer of credit or insurance to the consumer (‘‘prescreened offer’’ or ‘‘prescreened solicitation’’) shall provide with each written solicitation a clear and conspicuous statement that: (A) Information contained in the consumer’s consumer report was used in connection with the transaction; (B) the consumer received the offer of credit or insurance because the consumer satisfied the criteria for credit worthiness or insurability under which the consumer was selected for the offer; (C) if applicable, the credit or insurance may not be extended if, after the consumer responds to the offer, the consumer does not meet the criteria used to select the consumer for the offer or any applicable criteria bearing on credit worthiness or insurability or does not furnish any required collateral; (D) the consumer has a right to prohibit information contained in the consumer’s file with any consumer reporting agency from being used in 1 15 PO 00000 U.S.C. 1681m(d). Frm 00020 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 connection with any credit or insurance transaction that is not initiated by the consumer; and (E) the consumer may exercise the opt-out right by notifying a notification system established under section 604(e) of the FCRA. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (‘‘FACT Act’’) was signed into law on December 4, 2003. Public Law 108–159, 117 Stat. 1952. Section 213(a) of the FACT Act amended FCRA section 615(d) to require that the statement mandated by section 615(d) ‘‘be presented in such format and in such type size and manner as to be simple and easy to understand, as established by the Commission, by rule, in consultation with the Federal banking agencies and the National Credit Union Administration.’’ On August 1, 2005, the FTC issued its Prescreen Opt-Out Notice Rule.2 B. Dodd-Frank Act The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘DoddFrank Act’’) was signed into law in 2010.3 The Dodd-Frank Act substantially changed the federal legal framework for financial services providers. Among the changes, the Dodd-Frank Act transferred to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (‘‘CFPB’’) the Commission’s rulemaking authority under portions of the FCRA.4 Accordingly, in 2012, the Commission rescinded several of its FCRA rules, which had been replaced by rules issued by the CFPB.5 The FTC retained rulemaking authority for other rules to the extent the rules apply to motor vehicle dealers described in section 1029(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act 6 that are predominantly engaged in the sale and servicing of motor vehicles, the leasing and servicing of motor vehicles, or both (‘‘motor vehicle dealers’’).7 The retained rules include the Prescreen Opt-Out Notice Rule, which now applies only to motor vehicle dealers.8 Consumer report users originally covered by the Prescreen Opt-Out Notice Rule that are not motor vehicle dealers are now covered by the CFPB’s rule.9 On May 22, 2019, the FTC rescinded several FCRA model notices and forms 2 70 FR 5021 (Aug. 1, 2005). Law 111–203 (2010). 4 15 U.S.C. 1681 et seq.

RIN 2120-AA66


Proposed Technical Amendment to Separate Terminal Airspace Areas 
from Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 
1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend the following Offshore Airspace 
Areas in Alaska: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and 
Control 1487L. The FAA found an error with the Offshore Airspace Legal 
Descriptions containing airspace descriptions not related to the need 
to apply IFR en route Air Traffic Control services in international 
airspace. This action would correct that error by removing terminal 
airspace, airspace associated with geographic coordinates, and airspace 
associated with NAVAIDs from the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before November 5, 2020.

ADDRESSES: Send comments on this proposal to the U.S. Department of 
Transportation, Docket Operations, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, West 
Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, DC 20590; telephone:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. 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. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the 
efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that 
authority as it would modify the route structure as necessary to 
preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National 
Airspace System.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 12, 2020, and effective 
September 15, 2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

Background

    A final rule was published in the Federal Register for Docket No. 
FAA-2006-25852 under Airspace Docket No. 06-AAL-29 (72 FR 31714; June 
8, 2007; as corrected 72 FR 37430, July 10, 2007), this action amended 
the following offshore airspace areas: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island 
Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska, 
to include terminal airspace previously thought to be excluded in the 
Code of Federal Regulations. The exclusionary language was 
misinterpreted including all airspace West of Longitude 160[deg]. The 
FAA found this interpretation to be in error as the exclusion only 
pertains to the area West of Longitude 160[deg] for the Alaska 
Peninsula. The Alaska Peninsula does not include the Aleutian Islands 
nor preclude the establishment of airspace under CFR 71.71(c). This 
action proposes to correct this error and reverse the final rule. 
Offshore Airspace areas are reserved for those areas that extend from 
the Territorial Zone to the Flight Information Region boundary, in 
international airspace, where it is necessary to apply domestic 
airspace rules.
    The FAA also published a final rule in the Federal Register for 
Docket No. FAA-2006-26164 under Airspace Docket No. 06-AAL-34 (72 FR 
5611; February 7, 2007). This action revoked the Class E Airspace for 
Adak, Atka, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand Point, 
Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK as it was thought that 
because these locations were within Control 1234L they should be 
contained in the offshore airspace description. This was in error as 
offshore airspace cannot be established within 12 nautical miles of a 
coastline of the United States (U.S.). This action would also correct 
that error. This proposed technical amendment would separate Offshore 
Airspace and terminal class E airspace to provide pilots with an 
accurate legal description in the appropriate sections of the 
regulation.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Norton Sound Low, Woody 
Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace areas by 
removing 33 terminal facilities, five NAVAIDS, and three sets of 
geographic coordinate assigned airspace included in the Offshore 
Airspace areas legal description

[[Page 59222]]

contained in FAA Order 7400.11 Section 6007. The vertical and lateral

ICAO Considerations

    As part of this proposal relates to navigable airspace outside the 
U.S. this notice is submitted in accordance with the International 
Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) International Standards and 
Recommended Practices. The application of International Standards and 
Recommended Practices by the FAA, Office of Policy, Rules and 
Regulations Group, in areas outside the U.S. domestic airspace, is 
governed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation. 
Specifically, the FAA is governed by Article 12 and Annex 11, which 
pertain to the establishment of necessary air navigational facilities 
and services to promote the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of 
civil air traffic. The purpose of Article 12 and Annex 11 is to ensure 
that civil aircraft operations on international air routes are 
performed under uniform conditions.
    The International Standards and Recommended Practices in Annex 11 
apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a contracting state, 
derived from ICAO. Annex 11 provisions apply when air traffic services 
are provided and a contracting state accepts the responsibility of 
providing air traffic services over high seas or in airspace of 
undetermined sovereignty. A contracting state accepting this 
responsibility may apply the International Standards and Recommended 
Practices that are consistent with standards and practices utilized in 
its domestic jurisdiction.
    In accordance with Article 3 of the convention, state-owned 
aircraft are exempt from the Standards and Recommended Practices of 
Annex 11. The United States is a contracting state to the Convention. 
Article 3(d) of the Convention provides that participating state 
aircraft will be operated in international airspace with due regard for 
the safety of civil aircraft.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 
Department of Transportation (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. 
Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
