Federal Register Highlights – 11/20/14

November 20, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive, and proposed rules for November 20, 2014:

PROPOSED RULE: The United States Coast Guard proposes to establish a permanent security zones within Sector Boston’s Captain of the Port (COTP) on the waters in the vicinity of John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse, Boston Massachusetts. Enforcement of this permanent security zone during high-profile court proceedings at the Moakley Courthouse is necessary to protect people, property, and the Port of Boston from subversive acts. Comments and related materials must be received by the Coast Guard on or before December 22, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (A.D.) for certain Agusta Model A109E, A109K2, A119, and AW119MKII helicopters. This A.D. requires repetitively performing an magnetic particle inspection of the Gleason crown for a crack. This A.D. was prompted by a report of a crack that was found on a Gleason crown, which if not detected, could cause damage to or loss of the main rotor drive and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. This A.D. is effective December 26, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (A.D.) for all Airbus Model A318 series airplanes, Model A319 series airplanes, Model A320-211, -212, -214, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes, and Model A321 series airplanes. This A.D. was prompted by a report of a circumferential crack at the gland retaining-ring groove of certain retraction actuators on the main landing gear (MLG). This A.D. requires an inspection to identify the part numbers of MLG retraction actuators and replacement of certain MLG retraction actuators. We are issuing this A.D. to prevent MLG retraction actuator failure that could prevent the full extension and/or down-locking of the MLG, possibly resulting in MLG collapse during landing or rollout, and consequent damage to the airplane and injury to the occupants. This A.D. becomes effective December 26, 2014.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (A.D.) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. This A.D. was prompted by a report indicating that inboard and outboard hydraulic lines of the brakes were found connected to the incorrect ports on the swivel assembly of the main landing gear (MLG). This A.D. requires modifying the MLG by installing a new bracket on the left and right lower aft-wing planks. We are issuing this A.D. to prevent incorrect installation of the brake hydraulic lines, which could cause the brakes and the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly, and consequent catastrophic failure of the airplane during a high-speed rejected takeoff.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (A.D.) for certain The Boeing Company Model 777-200LR, -300, -300ER, and 777F series airplanes. This A.D. was prompted by reports of dual pitch rate sensor (PRS) failures causing the primary flight computers to transition from primary mode to secondary mode, resulting in autopilot disconnect. This A.D. requires an inspection to determine the PRS part number, and replacement if necessary. We are issuing this A.D. to prevent a dual PRS failure that could cause an automatic disengagement of the autopilot and autoland, which may prevent continued safe flight and landing if disengagement occurs at low altitude and the flight crew is unable to safely assume control and execute a go-around or manual landing. This A.D. is effective December 26, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for dusky rockfish in the Western Regulatory Area of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2014 total allowable catch of dusky rockfish in the Western Regulatory Area of the GOA. Effective 1200 hrs., Alaska local time (ALT), November 17, 2014, through 2400 hrs. ALT, December 31, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for northern rockfish in the Western Regulatory Area of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2014 total allowable catch of northern rockfish in the Western Regulatory Area of the GOA. Effective 1200 hrs., Alaska local time (ALT), November 17, 2014, through 2400 hrs., ALT, December 31, 2014.

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for Pacific ocean perch in the Western Regulatory Area of the Gulf of Alaska (GOA). This action is necessary to prevent exceeding the 2014 total allowable catch of Pacific ocean perch in the Western Regulatory Area of the GOA. Effective 1200 hrs., Alaska local time (ALT), November 17, 2014, through 2400 hrs., ALT, December 31, 2014.
