Federal Register Highlights – 5/27/14

May 27, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 27, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard will enforce the Biotechnology Industry Organization firework display safety zone on June 23, 2014. This marine event occurs on the navigable waters of San Diego Bay, immediately to the west of the USS MIDWAY, in San Diego, California. This action is  necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, safety vessels, and general users of the waterway. During the enforcement period, persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. This rule is effective from 8:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. on June 23, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Helicopters Model AS332L1 and Model EC225LP helicopters. This AD requires relocating the power supply circuit breaker source of one engine’s multi-purpose air intake (MPAI). This AD is prompted by a report that power loss to the MPAI could open the engine air intakes, which could result in engine ice ingestion during flight in icing conditions. These actions are intended to prevent ice ingestion by both engines, which could result in complete loss of engine thrust, and possible loss of control of the helicopter. This AD becomes effective June 11, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 757–200, –200PF, –200CB, and –300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking of the forward bulkhead web, web stiffeners, attachment angles, and thermal anti-ice (TAI) spray ring assemblies of the engine air intake cowl. This AD requires replacing the forward bulkhead assembly, TAI spray ring assembly, and attachment fittings of the air intake cowl. We are issuing this AD to prevent the failure of air intake cowl components due to cracking, which could result in the air intake cowl separating from the engine and striking critical airplane control surfaces that could result in a loss of airplane control; severe engine damage and loss of thrust; or large parts striking a person or property on the ground. This AD is effective July 1, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 777–200, –200LR, –300, –300ER, and 777F series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of two in-service occurrences on Model 737–400 airplanes of total loss of boost pump pressure of the fuel feed system, followed by loss of fuel system suction feed capability on one engine, and in-flight shutdown of the engine. This AD requires revising the maintenance program to incorporate a revision to the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the maintenance planning data (MPD) document. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct failure of the engine fuel suction feed of the fuel system, which, in the event of total loss of the fuel boost pumps, could result in dual engine flameout, inability to restart the engines, and consequent forced landing of the airplane. This AD is effective July 1, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS proposes to approve and implement regulations to implement Framework Adjustment 8 to the Monkfish Fishery Management Plan. The New England and Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Councils developed Framework Adjustment 8 to revise existing monkfish day-at-sea allocations and landing limits to better achieve optimum yield in each fishery management area. Framework Adjustment 8 would also revise biological reference points for the monkfish stocks in the Northern and Southern Fishery Management Areas based on an updated stock assessment, allow vessels issued a limited access monkfish Category H permit to fish throughout the Southern Fishery Management Area, and enable vessels to use an allocated monkfish-only day-at- sea at any time throughout the fishing year. Public comments must be received by June 11, 2014. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number NOAA–NMFS–2013–0173.)
