Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain MHI RJ Aviation ULC Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) airplanes, Model CL–600–2C11 (Regional Jet Series 550) airplanes, Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL–600– 2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL–600–2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of corrosion on fuel clamshell couplings installed in the fuel tank, and a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require removing and replacing the fuel clamshell couplings on certain airplanes, and revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. SUMMARY: The FAA must receive comments on this proposed AD by March 11, 2022.

Discussion Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued TCCA AD CF– 2021–16, dated April 26, 2021 (TCCA AD CF–2021–16) (also referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or the MCAI), to correct an unsafe condition for certain MHI RJ Aviation ULC Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) airplanes, Model CL–600–2C11 (Regional Jet Series 550) airplanes, Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL–600– 2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL–600–2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. 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–2022– 0011. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of corrosion on fuel clamshell couplings installed in the fuel tank, and a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address corroded fuel clamshell couplings in the fuel tank, which, if not removed and replaced, could reduce the ability of the fuel coupling to conduct E:\FR\FM\25JAP1.SGM 25JAP1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 16 / Tuesday, January 25, 2022 / Proposed Rules lightning current and possibly lead to arcing and subsequent fuel tank ignition in the event of a lightning strike. See the MCAI for additional background information. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 MHI RJ Aviation has issued Service Bulletin 601R–28–068, Revision A, dated December 21, 2020; and Service Bulletin 670BA–28–041, Revision B, dated January 27, 2021. This service information describes procedures for removing and replacing the fuel clamshell couplings. These documents are distinct because they apply to different airplane models. MHI RJ Aviation has also issued Temporary Revision (TR) 2S4–002, dated September 1, 2021. This service information describes a Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) item for bonding of fuel and vent lines for lightning protection to preclude a spark. MHI RJ Aviation has also issued the following TRs, which describe airworthiness limitations for fuel tank systems. • TR 2S4–003, dated September 1, 2021; CRJ Series Regional Jet TR ALI– 0741, dated October 13, 2020; and CRJ700/900/1000 Series Regional Jet TR ALI–0751, dated April 8, 2021, describe a procedure for removing and replacing self-bonding couplings in the fuel tank. • CRJ Series Regional Jet TR ALI– 0740, dated October 13, 2020, describes a CDCCL item for bonding of fuel and vent lines for lightning protection to preclude a spark. 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 These products have been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and are approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to the FAA’s bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, it has notified the FAA of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. The FAA is issuing this NPRM after determining that the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of these same type designs. Proposed Requirements of This NPRM This proposed AD would require removing and replacing the fuel clamshell couplings on certain airplanes and revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections) and CDCCLs. Compliance with these actions and CDCCLs is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator may not be able to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (m)(1) of this proposed AD. Differences Between This Proposed AD and the MCAI or Service Information The MCAI specifies to revise the CDCCL Items as introduced by Bombardier CL–600–2B19 TR 2D–009, dated October 24, 2020, in Appendix D—Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ Maintenance Requirements Manual (MRM). This proposed AD does not require this action because the TR references Appendix D—Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ MRM, 3717 which is not applicable to U.S. airplanes. As a result, this proposed AD would require that the information specified in MHI RJ TR 2S4–002, dated September 1, 2021, is incorporated into Supplement 4—FAA Fuel System Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ MRM as required by paragraph (h)(1) of this proposed AD. MHI RJ TR 2S4–002, dated September 1, 2021, addresses the unsafe condition with references that apply to U.S. airplanes and provides the same or better level of safety. The MCAI also specifies to incorporate the new Fuel System Limitation Task 28–23–00–605 as introduced by Bombardier CL–600– 2B19 TR 2D–008, dated October 24, 2020; and to revise the Task Description Effectivity as amended by Bombardier CL–600–2B19 TR 2D–010, dated April 8, 2021; in Appendix D—Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ MRM. This proposed AD does not require these actions because these TRs also reference Appendix D—Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ MRM, which is not applicable to U.S. airplanes. As a result, this proposed AD would require that the information specified in MHI RJ TR 2S4–003, dated September 1, 2021, is incorporated into Supplement 4—FAA Fuel System Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ MRM, as specified in paragraph (h)(2) of this proposed AD. MHI RJ TR 2S4– 003, dated September 1, 2021, addresses the unsafe condition with references that apply to U.S. airplanes and provides the same or better level of safety. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 914 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: ESTIMATED COSTS FOR REQUIRED ACTIONS * Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Up to 21 work-hours × $85 per hour = $1,785 ............................................................... Up to $5,837 .. Up to $7,622 .. Cost on U.S. operators Up to $6,966,508. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS * Table does not include estimated costs for revising the maintenance/inspection program. The FAA has determined that revising the maintenance or inspection program takes an average of 90 work-hours per operator, although the FAA recognizes that this number may vary from operator to operator. In the past, the FAA has estimated that this action takes 1 workhour per airplane. Since operators VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:04 Jan 24, 2022 Jkt 256001 incorporate maintenance or inspection program changes for their affected fleet(s), the FAA has determined that a per-operator estimate is more accurate than a per-airplane estimate. Therefore, the FAA estimates the total cost per operator to be $7,650 (90 work-hours × $85 per work-hour). PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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. The FAA does not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a result, the FAA has E:\FR\FM\25JAP1.SGM 25JAP1 3718 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 16 / Tuesday, January 25, 2022 / Proposed Rules § 39.13 included all known costs in the 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. The FAA is 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. Regulatory Findings The FAA 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) Would not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (3) Would not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Scope of Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) FinCEN is issuing this NPRM pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 5318(g)(8), as added by section 6212 of the AML Act,1 1 The AML Act was enacted as Division F, sections 6001–6511, of the William M. (Mac) Frm 00021 Fmt 4702 which requires the Secretary of the Treasury (the Secretary) to issue rules establishing a pilot program that permits a financial institution subject to a SAR reporting requirement under 31 U.S.C. 5318(g) to share SARs and related information, including the fact that a SAR has been filed, with the institution’s foreign branches, subsidiaries, and affiliates for the purpose of combating illicit finance risks.2 II. Background RIN 1506–AB51 PO 00000 3719 Sfmt 4702 A. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Enacted in 1970 and amended most recently by the AML Act, the BSA aids in the prevention of money laundering, terrorism financing, and other illicit financial activity, and the protection of U.S. national security.3 The purposes of the BSA include, among other things, ‘‘requir[ing] certain reports or records that are highly useful in—(A) criminal, tax, or regulatory investigations, risk assessments, or proceedings; or (B) intelligence or counterintelligence activities, including analysis, to protect against terrorism’’ and ‘‘establish[ing] appropriate frameworks for information sharing’’ among financial institutions and government authorities, among others.4 The Secretary is authorized to require domestic financial institutions or nonfinancial trades or businesses to maintain appropriate procedures to ensure compliance with the BSA and the regulations promulgated thereunder or to guard against money laundering, the financing of terrorism, and other forms of illicit finance.5 The Secretary has delegated to the Director of FinCEN the authority to implement, administer, and enforce compliance with the BSA and associated regulations.6 The BSA authorizes the Secretary to require the reporting of suspicious Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, Public Law 116–283, 134 Stat 3388 (2021). 2 For purposes of this NPRM, ‘‘SARs and related information’’ means a report filed pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 5318(g) and any information that would reveal the existence of such a report. Because SARs filed on insider abuse are filed under Federal banking agency regulations (see, e.g., 12 CFR 21.11(c)(1)), and are not part of FinCEN’s SAR regulations, they are not included in this definition and are not permitted to be shared under the pilot program FinCEN is proposing to establish by this NPRM. 3 The BSA is codified at 12 U.S.C. 1829b, 1951– 1959 and 31 U.S.C. 5311–5314, 5316–5336.

Airworthiness Directives; MHI RJ Aviation ULC (Type Certificate 
Previously Held by Bombardier, Inc.) Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) 
for certain MHI RJ Aviation ULC Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 
100 & 440) airplanes, Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 
702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2C11 (Regional Jet Series 550) airplanes, 
Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL-600-
2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2E25 
(Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by 
reports of corrosion on fuel clamshell couplings installed in the fuel 
tank, and a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness 
limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require removing and 
replacing the fuel clamshell couplings on certain airplanes, and 
revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, 
to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The 
FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these 
products.

DATES: The FAA must receive comments on this proposed AD by March 11, 
2022.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued TCCA AD CF-2021-16, dated April 26, 
2021 (TCCA AD CF-2021-16) (also referred to after this as the Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information, or the MCAI), to correct an 
unsafe condition for certain MHI RJ Aviation ULC Model CL-600-2B19 
(Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional 
Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2C11 (Regional Jet 
Series 550) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) 
airplanes, Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and 
Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. 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-2022-
0011.
    This proposed AD was prompted by reports of corrosion on fuel 
clamshell couplings installed in the fuel tank, and a determination 
that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. 
The FAA is proposing this AD to address corroded fuel clamshell 
couplings in the fuel tank, which, if not removed and replaced, could 
reduce the ability of the fuel coupling to conduct

[[Page 3717]]

lightning current and possibly lead to arcing and subsequent fuel tank 
ignition in the event of a lightning strike. See the MCAI for 
additional background information.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    MHI RJ Aviation has issued Service Bulletin 601R-28-068, Revision 
A, dated December 21, 2020; and Service Bulletin 670BA-28-041, Revision 
B, dated January 27, 2021. This service information describes 
procedures for removing and replacing the fuel clamshell couplings. 
These documents are distinct because they apply to different airplane 
models.
    MHI RJ Aviation has also issued Temporary Revision (TR) 2S4-002, 
dated September 1, 2021. This service information describes a Critical 
Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) item for bonding of 
fuel and vent lines for lightning protection to preclude a spark.
    MHI RJ Aviation has also issued the following TRs, which describe 
airworthiness limitations for fuel tank systems.
     TR 2S4-003, dated September 1, 2021; CRJ Series Regional 
Jet TR ALI-0741, dated October 13, 2020; and CRJ700/900/1000 Series 
Regional Jet TR ALI-0751, dated April 8, 2021, describe a procedure for 
removing and replacing self-bonding couplings in the fuel tank.
     CRJ Series Regional Jet TR ALI-0740, dated October 13, 
2020, describes a CDCCL item for bonding of fuel and vent lines for 
lightning protection to preclude a spark.
    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

    These products have been approved by the aviation authority of 
another country, and are approved for operation in the United States. 
Pursuant to the FAA's bilateral agreement with the State of Design 
Authority, it has notified the FAA of the unsafe condition described in 
the MCAI and service information referenced above. The FAA is issuing 
this NPRM after determining that the unsafe condition described 
previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of these 
same type designs.

Proposed Requirements of This NPRM

    This proposed AD would require removing and replacing the fuel 
clamshell couplings on certain airplanes and revising the existing 
maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or 
more restrictive airworthiness limitations.
    This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator 
maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections) and 
CDCCLs. Compliance with these actions and CDCCLs is required by 14 CFR 
91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, 
or repaired in the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator 
may not be able to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. 
In this situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must 
request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to 
paragraph (m)(1) of this proposed AD.

Differences Between This Proposed AD and the MCAI or Service 
Information

    The MCAI specifies to revise the CDCCL Items as introduced by 
Bombardier CL-600-2B19 TR 2D-009, dated October 24, 2020, in Appendix 
D--Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of 
the MHI RJ Maintenance Requirements Manual (MRM). This proposed AD does 
not require this action because the TR references Appendix D--Fuel 
Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI 
RJ MRM, which is not applicable to U.S. airplanes. As a result, this 
proposed AD would require that the information specified in MHI RJ TR 
2S4-002, dated September 1, 2021, is incorporated into Supplement 4--
FAA Fuel System Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of 
the MHI RJ MRM as required by paragraph (h)(1) of this proposed AD. MHI 
RJ TR 2S4-002, dated September 1, 2021, addresses the unsafe condition 
with references that apply to U.S. airplanes and provides the same or 
better level of safety.
    The MCAI also specifies to incorporate the new Fuel System 
Limitation Task 28-23-00-605 as introduced by Bombardier CL-600-2B19 TR 
2D-008, dated October 24, 2020; and to revise the Task Description 
Effectivity as amended by Bombardier CL-600-2B19 TR 2D-010, dated April 
8, 2021; in Appendix D--Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, 
Airworthiness Requirements, of the MHI RJ MRM. This proposed AD does 
not require these actions because these TRs also reference Appendix D--
Fuel Systems Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, of the 
MHI RJ MRM, which is not applicable to U.S. airplanes. As a result, 
this proposed AD would require that the information specified in MHI RJ 
TR 2S4-003, dated September 1, 2021, is incorporated into Supplement 
4--FAA Fuel System Limitations of Part 2, Airworthiness Requirements, 
of the MHI RJ MRM, as specified in paragraph (h)(2) of this proposed 
AD. MHI RJ TR 2S4-003, dated September 1, 2021, addresses the unsafe 
condition with references that apply to U.S. airplanes and provides the 
same or better level of safety.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 914 airplanes of 
U.S. registry. The FAA estimates 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
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Up to 21 work-hours x $85 per     Up to $5,837..........  Up to $7,622..........  Up to $6,966,508.
 hour = $1,785.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Table does not include estimated costs for revising the maintenance/inspection program.

    The FAA has determined that revising the maintenance or inspection 
program takes an average of 90 work-hours per operator, although the 
FAA recognizes that this number may vary from operator to operator. In 
the past, the FAA has estimated that this action takes 1 work-hour per 
airplane. Since operators incorporate maintenance or inspection program 
changes for their affected fleet(s), the FAA has determined that a per-
operator estimate is more accurate than a per-airplane estimate. 
Therefore, the FAA estimates the total cost per operator to be $7,650 
(90 work-hours x $85 per work-hour).
    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. The FAA does not control warranty 
coverage for affected individuals. As a result, the FAA has

[[Page 3718]]

included all known costs in the 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.
    The FAA is 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.

Regulatory Findings

    The FAA 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) Would not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
    (3) Would not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
