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.

Final rule; delay of effective date.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is further delaying the effective date of a final rule that amends the reporting requirements for air carriers and certificated domestic and foreign repair station operators concerning failures, malfunctions, and defects of aircraft, aircraft engines, systems, and components. This action was prompted by questions being raised by industry on the reporting in the new requirements.

The FAA requested that comments on the information collection requirements of the Service Difficulty Reporting (SDR) final rule (65 FR 56192, September 15, 2000) be submitted by November 14, 2000. The FAA has received extensive written comments on the SDR reporting requirements and duplicate reporting of certain failures, malfunctions, and defects. On November 30, 2000 (65 FR 71247), the FAA announced that a public meeting on this rulemaking would be held on December 11, 2000. As a result of this public meeting, novel issues were presented that the FAA was not aware of during the comment period to the supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking.
The SDR final rule, as published, had an effective date of January 16, 2001. On December 22, 2000, (65 FR 80743), the FAA published a notice of delay of the effective date of the final rule. In that notice, the effective date of the final rule was delayed until July 16, 2001.
The FAA has determined that it will need more time to further evaluate the commenter's concerns. Therefore, the FAA is delaying the effective date of the final rule until January 16, 2002. The existing rules will remain in effect until the new effective date.
Since this delay of the effective date is not a new requirement and does not impose any additional burden, I find that notice and public procedures thereon are unnecessary and that good cause exists for extending the effective date on less than 30 days notice.Start Signature
