Pipeline Safety: Class Location Change Requirements
Document Number: 2018-16376
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-07-31
Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
PHMSA is seeking public comment on its existing class location requirements for natural gas transmission pipelines as they pertain to actions operators are required to take following class location changes due to population growth near the pipeline. Operators have suggested that performing integrity management measures on pipelines where class locations have changed due to population increases would be an equally safe but less costly alternative to the current requirements of either reducing pressure, pressure testing, or replacing pipe. This request for public comment continues a line of discussion from a Notice of Inquiry published in 2013 and a report to Congress in 2016 regarding whether expanding integrity management requirements would mitigate the need for class location requirements.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves FAA review of Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certification Training Program (CTP) submittals to determine that the program complies with the applicable requirements. It also involves FAA review of an institution of higher education's application for the authority to certify its graduates meet the minimum regulatory requirements.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Airport Noise Compatibility Planning
Document Number: 2018-16366
Type: Notice

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves information on voluntary airport noise compatibility programs. The respondents are airport operators that voluntarily submit noise exposure maps and noise compatibility programs to the FAA for review and approval. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on May 25, 2018. The information to be collected is necessary because noise compatibility program measures are eligible for Federal grants-in-aid if they are provided to FAA for review in approval in advance.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Flight and Duty Limitations and Rest Requirements-Flightcrew Members
Document Number: 2018-16364
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-07-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves reporting exceeded flight duty periods and flight times, including scheduled maximum and actual flight duty periods and flight times, basic flight information (e.g., city pairs, departure times, flight number), and reason for exceedance. Reporting and recordkeeping are required any time a certificated air carrier has exceeded a maximum daily flight time limit or a maximum daily Flight Duty Period (FDP) limit. It is also required for the voluntary development of a Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS), and for fatigue training. The information is necessary to monitor trends in exceedance and possible underlying systemic causes requiring operator action, and to determine whether operator is scheduling realistically.
Special Conditions: Bombardier Inc., Model BD-700-2A12 and BD-700-2A13 Series Airplanes, Flight Envelope Protection: Pitch and Roll Limiting
Document Number: 2018-16360
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-07-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These amended special conditions are issued for the Bombardier Inc. (Bombardier), Model BD-700-2A12 and BD-700-2A13 series airplanes. These amended special conditions change paragraphs 2 and 3 of the special conditions section based on information from Bombardier that makes changes to the novel or unusual design feature of this airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the applicable airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. This design feature is the fly-by-wire electronic flight-control system (EFCS) that will limit pitch and roll functions to prevent the airplane from attaining certain pitch attitudes and roll angles. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.

Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From Groendyke Transport, Inc.
Document Number: 2018-16223
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-07-30
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests public comment on an application for exemption from Groendyke Transport, Inc. (Groendyke) to allow the use of a pulsating brake lamp in addition to the steady burning brake lamps required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) in its fleet operations. The FMCSRs require all exterior lamps (both required lamps and any additional lamps) to be steady-burning, with the exception of turn signal lamps, hazard warning signal lamps, school bus warning lamps, amber warning lamps or flashing warning lamps on tow trucks and commercial motor vehicles (CMV) transporting oversized loads, and warning lamps on emergency and service vehicles authorized by State or local authorities. Groendyke believes that operating a pulsating brake lamp on the rear of its trailers on a fleet-wide basis would allow the company to operate its equipment more effectively, efficiently, and safely, and would maintain a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that it would achieve without the requested exemption.

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as an incorrect part number for the rudder trim actuator is referenced in the Airworthiness Limitations section of the FAA-approved maintenance program (e.g., maintenance manual) and the life limit for that part may not be properly applied in service. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Vendor and Grantee Invoice Submission Process Change
Document Number: 2018-16089
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-07-27
Agency: Department of Transportation, Office of the Secretary of Transportation
The DOT invites the public and other Federal agencies to comment on a proposed vendor invoice submission change. DOT will submit the proposed information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. This notice sets forth new processes and procedures for vendors and grantees that submit invoices and receive payments for DOT Operating Administrations (OAs). Existing users of DOT's eInvoicing system, including grantees and vendors, will also be required to use Login.gov. DOT's objective is to improve efficiency and reduce unnecessary burden on vendors and grantees by eliminating existing manual processes for invoice entry, invoice approvals and user registration to reduce costs, increase timeliness of payments, and improve data quality. Introducing e-authentication to facilitate user validation and account management will greatly reduce the burden on vendors and grantees by eliminating the current paper based registration process. This electronic invoicing process is currently used by DOT's grantee community and was successfully piloted to select vendors.
