Comments should identify the consensus standard number and be sent to an address listed under ADDRESSES. The FAA will forward all comments received on or before the closing date to ASTM Committee F37 for consideration, who may change the standard in light of the comments received. The FAA will address all comments received during its recurring review of the consensus standards and participation in the consensus standards revision process. Background This notice announces the availability of one new and two revised consensus standards, developed by ASTM Committee F37 on Light-Sport Aircraft, which supersede previously accepted consensus standards. Under the provisions of the Certification of Aircraft and Airmen for the Operation of Light-Sport Aircraft rule (69 FR 44772; July 27, 2004) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A–119, ‘‘Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment E:\FR\FM\23FEN1.SGM 23FEN1 10276 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 36 / Wednesday, February 23, 2022 / Notices Activities,’’ issued February 10, 1998, and revised January 27, 2016, the FAA accepted consensus standards for the certification of light-sport aircraft. Instead of developing airworthiness standards through the rulemaking process, the FAA participates as a member of Committee F37 in developing and revising these standards. In the final rule, the FAA stated the agency would continue to participate in revising the consensus standards at an interval no longer than every two years (69 FR 44787). Each review cycle results in a revision to or reapproval of the consensus standard. A revision changes the technical content of the consensus standard, while a reapproval indicates a review cycle has been completed with no technical changes. Each consensus standard is issued under a fixed designation (e.g., F2245). A number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses following the year of original adoption or revision indicates the year of last reapproval. For example, F2242–05(2013) designates a standard that was originally adopted (or revised) in 2005 and reapproved in 2013. A superscript epsilon (e) after the reapproval year indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. The FAA only issues a notice of availability for new or revised standards. Reapproved standards issued with no technical changes or standards issued with editorial changes only (i.e., superscript epsilon [e]) are accepted by the FAA without notice. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Comments on Previous Notice of Availability The FAA last published a notice of availability of new and revised consensus standards in the Federal Register on October 3, 2018 (83 FR 49971; corrected October 22, 2018, 83 FR 53358). In the notice, the FAA requested public comments on two new and two revised consensus standards. The comment period closed on December 3, 2018. The FAA received no comments. Consensus Standards in This Notice of Availability The FAA has participated in the development process for the consensus standards presented in this notice of availability and reviewed these standards for compliance with the regulatory requirements of the Certification of Aircraft and Airmen for the Operation of Light-Sport Aircraft rule.

Effective Period of Use for Previous Consensus Standards The following previously-accepted consensus standards have been revised. This notice announces the FAA’s acceptance of the revisions. Either the previous revision or the current revision may be used for initial airworthiness certification of light-sport aircraft until February 23, 2023. This period will allow aircraft that have started the initial airworthiness certification process using the previous revision to complete that process. After February 23, 2023, manufacturers must use the current revision and must identify the current revision in the manufacturer’s statement of compliance for initial airworthiness certification of light-sport aircraft unless the FAA publishes a notification otherwise.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    The FAA invites you to submit any written data, views, or arguments 
about this notice. Comments should identify the consensus standard 
number and be sent to an address listed under ADDRESSES. The FAA will 
forward all comments received on or before the closing date to ASTM 
Committee F37 for consideration, who may change the standard in light

during its recurring review of the consensus standards and 
participation in the consensus standards revision process.

Background

    This notice announces the availability of one new and two revised 
consensus standards, developed by ASTM Committee F37 on Light-Sport 
Aircraft, which supersede previously accepted consensus standards. 
Under the provisions of the Certification of Aircraft and Airmen for 
the Operation of Light-Sport Aircraft rule (69 FR 44772; July 27, 2004) 
and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-119, ``Federal 
Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus 
Standards and in Conformity Assessment

[[Page 10276]]

Activities,'' issued February 10, 1998, and revised January 27, 2016, 
the FAA accepted consensus standards for the certification of light-
sport aircraft.
    Instead of developing airworthiness standards through the 
rulemaking process, the FAA participates as a member of Committee F37 
in developing and revising these standards. In the final rule, the FAA 
stated the agency would continue to participate in revising the 
consensus standards at an interval no longer than every two years (69 
FR 44787). Each review cycle results in a revision to or reapproval of 
the consensus standard. A revision changes the technical content of the 
consensus standard, while a reapproval indicates a review cycle has 
been completed with no technical changes.
    Each consensus standard is issued under a fixed designation (e.g., 
F2245). A number immediately following the designation indicates the 
year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last 
revision. A number in parentheses following the year of original 
adoption or revision indicates the year of last reapproval. For 
example, F2242-05(2013) designates a standard that was originally 
adopted (or revised) in 2005 and reapproved in 2013. A superscript 
epsilon ([egr]) after the reapproval year indicates an editorial change 
since the last revision or reapproval. The FAA only issues a notice of 
availability for new or revised standards. Reapproved standards issued 
with no technical changes or standards issued with editorial changes 
only (i.e., superscript epsilon [[egr]]) are accepted by the FAA 
without notice.

    The FAA last published a notice of availability of new and revised 
consensus standards in the Federal Register on October 3, 2018 (83 FR 
49971; corrected October 22, 2018, 83 FR 53358). In the notice, the FAA 
requested public comments on two new and two revised consensus 
standards. The comment period closed on December 3, 2018. The FAA 
received no comments.
