Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
To standardize manufacturer and reconditioner approvals, PHMSA is proposing to terminate any M-number and R-number approvals that were previously issued without an expiration date. The termination of these approvals will take effect one year from the publication date of this notice. Approval holders must either show cause why their approvals should not be terminated or apply for a modification of their approval prior to the effective date to avoid termination. Once terminated, requests for reconsideration of the termination must be submitted within 20 days of the date of termination.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24814
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900), and CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by several incidents of electrical shorting and sparks caused by de-icing fluid leaks between flight deck windshields and side windows. This proposed AD would require water spray tests and general visual inspections for water in the flight compartment, and water removal and sealant application if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24809
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of failures of the lip heater assemblies of the inlet ice protection system of the cabin air compressor (CAC) due to chafing. This proposed AD would require changing the airplane electrical connectors and the routes of certain wire bundles, and installing new or modified left and right CAC inlet duct assemblies. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
