Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the renewal Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for its review and approval and invites public comment. This Information Collection (IC) is voluntary and may be utilized by certified Medical Examiners (ME) responsible for issuing Medical Examiner's Certificates (MEC) to commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. Certified MEs who choose to use this IC do so in an effort to communicate with treating healthcare professionals, who are responsible for prescribing certain medications, so that the certified MEs fully understand the reasons the medications have been prescribed. The information obtained by this IC assists the certified MEs in determining if drivers are physically qualified and if there are medical conditions or being treated with certain prescribed medications that would adversely affect the drivers' ability to safely operate CMVs. FMCSA requests approval to renew an ICR titled, ``391.41 CMV Driver Medication Form.'' In response to the Federal Register notice published on July 3, 2019, requesting public comment, FMCSA received two comments.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-24192
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-11-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-100-1A10 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that during ALTS CAP or (V) ALTS CAP mode, the flight guidance/autopilot does not account for engine failure while capturing an altitude. This proposed AD would require revising the existing airplane flight manual (AFM) to provide the flightcrew with new warnings for ``Autoflight'' and ``Engine Failure in Climb During ALTS CAP.'' The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Type: Rule
Date: 2019-11-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes.

This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections of the external lugs of the aluminum cargo door latch fittings for cracks, and corrective actions if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. Accomplishing the installation of new aluminum cargo door latch fittings constitutes terminating action for the repetitive detailed inspections.

This AD was prompted by reports that non-approved passenger oxygen containers (POCs) may have been installed on the affected airplanes. This AD requires a one-time special detailed inspection (SDI) of each POC, and replacement if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference.

This AD was prompted by reports that the regulated bleed temperature was measured above the design target with a temperature regulation shift phenomenon, and investigation results show that incorrect temperature regulation can degrade pneumatic system components located downstream of the pre-cooler. This AD requires uploading improved bleed monitoring computer (BMC) software (SW), as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference.

Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Wilson Logistics
Document Number: 2019-24100
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-11-06
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that Wilson Logistics has applied for an exemption from the requirement that the holder of a Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) be accompanied by the holder of a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), seated in the front seat, while the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) is being driven by the CLP holder. Specifically, Wilson Logistics requests an exemption to allow CLP holders who have successfully passed the CDL skills test to drive a CMV without having a CDL holder seated in the front seat. Wilson Logistics states that the CDL holder would remain in the CMV while the CLP holder is driving, but not necessarily in the passenger seat. Wilson Logistics believes that the exemption, if granted, would promote greater productivity and help individuals who have passed the CDL skills test return to actively earning a living faster. FMCSA requests public comment on Wilson Logistics' application for exemption.

Hazardous Materials: Unapproved Foreign-Made DOT Cylinders
Document Number: 2019-23878
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-11-01
Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
PHMSA is issuing this safety advisory notice to inform the public, industrial gas stakeholders, and relevant government officials of the risks associated with requalifying, filling, and transporting cylinders bearing the DOT specification markings ``DOT 4E'' or ``DOT 4BA'' that were produced by a company located in Thailand by the name of Metal Mate. Metal Mate does not have an approval from PHMSA to manufacture cylinders to DOT specifications; therefore, cylinders marked with the Metal Mate name are not DOT specification cylinders. They must not be used to transport hazardous materials in commerce to, from, or within the United States, or on a United States-registered aircraft. These cylinders may not perform to the marked DOT performance standard and may not be safe for commercial transportation or consumer use.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-23867
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-11-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A320-214, -232, and -271N airplanes, and Model A321-231 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a production line inspection finding of damage on a main landing gear (MLG) side stay attachment outboard lug. This proposed AD would require an inspection for discrepancies of the MLG side stay attachment outboard lugs, left-hand and right-hand sides, and applicable corrective action, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters (Type Certificate Previously Held by Eurocopter France) Helicopters
Document Number: 2019-23832
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-11-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011-12-07 for Eurocopter France (now Airbus Helicopters) Model SA- 365C, SA-365C1, SA-365C2, SA-365N, SA-365N1, AS-365N2, AS 365 N3, and SA-366G1 helicopters. AD 2011-12-07 currently requires repetitively inspecting the adhesive bead between the bushings and the Starflex star (Starflex) arms and the Starflex arm ends. Since the FAA issued AD 2011-12-07, Airbus Helicopters has developed an improved Starflex. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2011-12-07 and revise the Applicability paragraph by omitting helicopters with the improved Starflex installed. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of failure of a wing strut leak test due to a missing bolt on the firewall. This proposed AD would require a one-time leak test of the strut upper spar areas for the left and right wing struts, and corrective action if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
