This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

This includes obtaining advice and recommendations on the FAA's commitment to harmonize title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) with its partners in Europe and Canada.
This notice is to inform the public that the FAA has asked ARAC to provide advice and recommendation on the following harmonization task:
Task: Review 14 CFR 25.365(d), in particular the factors applied to the maximum relief value setting, which is used to set a limit structural design loan. Review FAA and Joint Aviation Authority (JAA) advisory material and paragraph 8 of Advisory Circular 25-20. In light of this review, develop a report recommending changes to harmonize this section and the corresponding JAR paragraph, recommending new harmonized standards, and develop related or revised advisory material as necessary.
Schedule: The report and advisory material shall be submitted to the FAA within 18 months after the date of this notice.
ARAC Acceptance of Tasks
ARAC has accepted the tasks and has chosen to assign the tasks to the General Structures Harmonization Working Group of the ARAC Transport Airplanes and Engine Issues group. The working group will serve as staff to ARAC to assist in the analysis of the assigned tasks. Working group recommendations must be reviewed and approved by ARAC. If ARAC accepts the working group's recommendations, it forwards them to the FAA as ARAC recommendations.

The General Structures Harmonization Working Group is expected to comply with the procedures adopted by ARAC. As part of the procedures, the working group is expected to:
1. Recommend a work plan for completion of the task, including the rationale supporting such a plan, for consideration at the meeting of the ARAC Transport Airplane and Engines issues held following publication of this notice.
