Federal Aviation Administration March 2, 2016 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Harmonization of Airworthiness Standards-Fire Extinguishers and Class B and F Cargo Compartments; Correction
Document Number: 2016-04508
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting a final rule published on February 16, 2016. In that rule, the FAA amended certain airworthiness regulations for transport category airplanes by upgrading fire safety standards for Class B cargo compartments; establishing fire safety standards for a new type of cargo compartment, Class F; and updating related standards for fire extinguishers. This amendment eliminated certain regulatory differences between the airworthiness standards of the FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), without affecting current industry design practices. However, in that document, the amendment number for the final rule was incorrect, and this document now posts the correct amendment number.
