Background On October 7, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Safety Management System for Certificated Airports’’ (75 FR 62008). The NPRM proposed to require all part 139 certificate holders to establish a Safety Management System (SMS) for the entire airfield environment, including movement and nonmovement areas, to improve safety at airports hosting air carrier operations. While reviewing the comments on the NPRM, the FAA reevaluated whether requiring an SMS at all part 139 certificated airports was appropriate. As part of the re-evaluation, the FAA assessed various combinations of criteria that could trigger the requirement to implement SMS and to maximize safety benefits in the least burdensome manner. On July 14, 2016, the FAA published an SNPRM titled ‘‘Safety Management System for Certificated Airports’’ (81 FR 45872). The SNPRM revised the proposed triggers for implementing SMS and proposed the FAA’s preferred alternative, which is to require SMS at airports that (a) are large, medium, or small hubs; (b) serve international air traffic; or (c) have more than 100,000 total annual operations. The FAA also revised the proposed implementation schedule to extend the implementation period from 18 months to 24 months and require the submission of an Implementation Plan within 12 months (instead of 6 months) from the effective date of the rule. The SNPRM clarified the training requirements and revised certain definitions to ensure consistency—when deemed appropriate—among various FAA SMS initiatives. The SNPRM comment period closed on September 12, 2016. The FAA received 38 comments on the SNPRM. Although most commenters were certificate holders, some were air carriers, consultants, academia, and individuals. Additionally, the following industry associations submitted comments: Airlines for America, Airports Council International-North America, American Association of Airport Executives, Helicopter Association International, and the National Business Aviation Association. The comments primarily addressed the following areas of the proposal: • Applicability; • Implementation; • Non-movement area; • Data protection; PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 47267 • Safety reporting and interoperability; • Training and orientation; • Accountable executive; • Definitions; and • Miscellaneous topics. Reopening of Comment Period As a result of the time that has passed since the close of the SNPRM comment period, the FAA has determined that it is appropriate to solicit comments on any new information or data that has come to light since the close of the comment period. Accordingly, the FAA is reopening the comment period for the SNPRM published at 81 FR 45872, for 30 days, until September 23, 2021 for the aforementioned limited purpose.

Background

    On October 7, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ``Safety Management System 
for Certificated Airports'' (75 FR 62008). The NPRM proposed to require 
all part 139 certificate holders to establish a Safety Management 
System (SMS) for the entire airfield environment, including movement 
and non-movement areas, to improve safety at airports hosting air 
carrier operations.
    While reviewing the comments on the NPRM, the FAA reevaluated 
whether requiring an SMS at all part 139 certificated airports was 
appropriate. As part of the re-evaluation, the FAA assessed various 
combinations of criteria that could trigger the requirement to 
implement SMS and to maximize safety benefits in the least burdensome 
manner.
    On July 14, 2016, the FAA published an SNPRM titled ``Safety 
Management System for Certificated Airports'' (81 FR 45872). The SNPRM 
revised the proposed triggers for implementing SMS and proposed the 
FAA's preferred alternative, which is to require SMS at airports that 
(a) are large, medium, or small hubs; (b) serve international air 
traffic; or (c) have more than 100,000 total annual operations. The FAA 
also revised the proposed implementation schedule to extend the 
implementation period from 18 months to 24 months and require the 
submission of an Implementation Plan within 12 months (instead of 6 
months) from the effective date of the rule. The SNPRM clarified the 
training requirements and revised certain definitions to ensure 
consistency--when deemed appropriate--among various FAA SMS 
initiatives.
    The SNPRM comment period closed on September 12, 2016. The FAA 
received 38 comments on the SNPRM. Although most commenters were 
certificate holders, some were air carriers, consultants, academia, and 
individuals. Additionally, the following industry associations 
submitted comments: Airlines for America, Airports Council 
International-North America, American Association of Airport 
Executives, Helicopter Association International, and the National 
Business Aviation Association. The comments primarily addressed the 
following areas of the proposal:
     Applicability;
     Implementation;
     Non-movement area;
     Data protection;
     Safety reporting and interoperability;
     Training and orientation;
     Accountable executive;
     Definitions; and
     Miscellaneous topics.

Reopening of Comment Period

    As a result of the time that has passed since the close of the 
SNPRM comment period, the FAA has determined that it is appropriate to 
solicit comments on any new information or data that has come to light 
since the close of the comment period. Accordingly, the FAA is 
reopening the comment period for the SNPRM published at 81 FR 45872, 
for 30 days, until September 23, 2021 for the aforementioned limited 
purpose.
    The most helpful comments provide only data and information that 
was not previously submitted to the rulemaking docket, reference a 
specific portion of the proposal, explain the reason for any 
recommended change, and include supporting data. To ensure the docket 
does not contain duplicate comments, commenters should send only one 
copy of written comments, or if comments are filed electronically, 
commenters should submit only one time.

Additional Information

    Except for Confidential Business Information (CBI) as described in 
the following paragraph, and other information as described in 14 CFR 
11.35, the FAA will file in the docket all comments it receives, as 
well as a report summarizing each substantive public contact with FAA 
personnel concerning this proposed rulemaking. Before acting on this 
proposal, the FAA will consider all comments it receives on or before 
the closing date for comments. The FAA will consider comments filed 
after the comment period has closed if it is possible to do so without 
incurring expense or delay. The agency may change this proposal in 
light of the comments it receives.
    Confidential Business Information (CBI) is commercial or financial 
information that is both customarily and actually treated as private by 
its owner. Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552), 
CBI is exempt from public disclosure. If your comments responsive to 
this SNPRM contain commercial or financial information that is 
customarily treated as private, that you actually treat as private, and 
that is relevant or responsive to this SNPRM, it is important that you 
clearly designate the submitted comments as CBI. Please mark each page 
of your submission containing CBI as ``PROPIN.'' The FAA will treat 
such marked submissions as

[[Page 47268]]

confidential under the FOIA, and they will not be placed in the public 
docket of this SNPRM. Submissions containing CBI should be sent to 
James Schroeder, Airports Safety & Operations Division, AAS-300, Office 
of Airports, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue 
SW, Washington, DC 20591-0001; email [email protected]. Any 
commentary that the FAA receives which is not specifically designated 
as CBI will be placed in the public docket for this rulemaking.
