Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 200 / Thursday, October 15, 2020 / Rules and Regulations The material incorporated by reference describes SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and/or ODPS as identified in the amendatory language for part 97 of this final rule. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP as amended in the transmittal. Some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and textual ODP amendments may have been issued previously by the FAA in a Flight Data Center (FDC) Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances that created the need for some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP amendments may require making them effective in less than 30 days. For the remaining SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, an effective date at least 30 days after publication is provided. Further, the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs contained in this amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied to the conditions existing or anticipated at the affected airports. Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where applicable, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d), good cause exists for making some SIAPs effective in less than 30 days. The FAA has determined that this 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 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. For the same reason, the FAA certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the complete description of each SIAP contained on FAA form documents is unnecessary.

Pursuant to section 215(d)(2) of the Federal Power Act (FPA),1 the Commission approves 18 of the 76 Reliability Standard requirements requested for retirement by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).2 For the reasons discussed below, we determine that the retirement of the 18 Reliability Standard requirements through the retirement of four Reliability Standards and the modification of five Reliability jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: 1 16 U.S.C. 824o(d)(2). withdrew the originally requested retirement of Reliability Standard VAR–001–6, Requirement R2 on May 14, 2020. 2 NERC VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:57 Oct 14, 2020 Jkt 253001 Standards is just, reasonable, not unduly discriminatory or preferential, and in the public interest.3 The Commission also approves the associated violation risk factors, violation severity levels, implementation plan, and effective dates proposed by NERC. 2. As set forth in the petitions, we conclude that the 18 Reliability Standard requirements: (1) Provide little or no reliability benefit; (2) are administrative in nature or relate expressly to commercial or business practices; or (3) are redundant with other Reliability Standards. These justifications are consistent with the Commission-approved rationale for retiring Reliability Standard requirements articulated in prior proceedings.4 3. The approved retirements will enhance the efficiency of the Reliability Standards program by reducing duplicative or otherwise unnecessary regulatory burdens. 4. In the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR), the Commission also proposed to approve the retirement of 56 requirements constituting the socalled MOD A Reliability Standards.5 The NOPR indicated that, if approved, the Commission intends to coordinate the effective dates for the retirement of the MOD A Reliability Standards with successor North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) business 3 The four Reliability Standards being eliminated in their entirety are Reliability Standards FAC–013– 2 (Assessment of Transfer Capability for the Nearterm Transmission Planning Horizon), INT–004–3.1 (Dynamic Transfers), INT–010–2.1 (Interchange Initiation and Modification for Reliability), MOD– 020–0 (Providing Interruptible Demands and Direct Control Load Management Data to System Operations and Reliability Coordinators). The five modified Reliability Standards approved herein are Reliability Standards INT–006–5 (Evaluation of Interchange Transactions), INT–009–3 (Implementation of Interchange) and PRC–004–6 (Protection System Misoperation Identification and Correction), IRO–002–7 (Reliability Coordination— Monitoring and Analysis), TOP–001–5 (Transmission Operations). 4 North American Electric Reliability Corp., 138 FERC ¶ 61,193, at P 81 (March 2012 Order), order on reh’g and clarification, 139 FERC ¶ 61,168 (2012); Electric Reliability Organization Proposal to Retire Requirements in Reliability Standards, Order No. 788, 145 FERC ¶ 61,147, at P 1 (2013) (stating that the proposed retirements ‘‘meet the benchmarks set forth in the Commission’s March 15, 2012 Order’’). 5 Electric Reliability Organization Proposal to Retire Requirements in Reliability Standards Under the NERC Standards Efficiency Review, 170 FERC ¶ 61,032 (2020) (NOPR).

However, for the reasons discussed below, we are not persuaded that it is appropriate to retire Reliability Standard FAC–008–3, Requirement R8. Because the Commission, pursuant to FPA section 215(d)(4), must remand to NERC for further consideration a proposed modification to a Reliability Standard that the Commission disapproves in whole or in part, we remand proposed Reliability Standard FAC–008–4 to address our concerns with the retirement of Requirement R8.

[Docket No. 31335; Amdt. No. 3926]


Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and 
Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument 
Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and 
Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These 
regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised 
criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace 
System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, 
adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These 
changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the 
navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under 
instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

DATES: This rule is effective October 15, 2020. The compliance date for 
each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the 
amendatory provisions.
    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in 
the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as 
of October 15, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97) by amending the referenced SIAPs. 
The complete regulatory description of each SIAP is listed on the 
appropriate FAA Form 8260, as modified by the National Flight Data 
Center (NFDC)/Permanent Notice to Airmen (P-NOTAM), and is incorporated 
by reference under 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 14 CFR 97.20. 
The large number of SIAPs, their complex nature, and the need for a 
special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register 
expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory 
text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts 
printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages 
of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the 
complete description of each SIAP contained on FAA form documents is 
unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR sections, and 
specifies the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs with their applicable 
effective dates. This amendment also identifies the airport and its 
location, the procedure and the amendment number.

Availability and Summary of Material Incorporated by Reference

    The material incorporated by reference is publicly available as 
listed in the ADDRESSES section.
    The material incorporated by reference describes SIAPs, Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPs as identified in the amendatory language for part 97 
of this final rule.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of 
each separate SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as amended in the 
transmittal. For safety and timeliness of change considerations, this 
amendment incorporates only specific changes contained for each SIAP 
and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as modified by FDC permanent NOTAMs.
    The SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, as modified by FDC 
permanent NOTAM, and contained in this amendment are based on the 
criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument 
Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to SIAPs and Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific 
conditions existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in 
this rule have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC NOTAM as an 
emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to 
published aeronautical charts.
    The circumstances that created the need for these SIAP and Takeoff 
Minimums and ODP amendments require making them effective in less than 
30 days.
    Because of the close and immediate relationship between these 
SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find 
that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where 
applicable, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d), good cause exists for making these 
SIAPs effective in less than 30 days.
    The FAA has determined that this 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 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. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
