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.

During the last year, AFS-800 has continued to work with industry to develop and implement system safety principles within the flight training community. The response to these efforts has been overwhelmingly positive, and several training providers have come forward requesting FIRC approvals for programs that highlight the FAA's system safety initiatives. Unfortunately, the FAA was Start Printed Page 16548unable to consider approval of these FIRC programs due to standing policy. However, it has become apparent that existing FAA policy does not best serve the flight training community. Accordingly, that policy is hereby rescinded.
The FAA encourages training providers who wish to develop new FIRC programs to contact the AFS-800 organization for further details concerning the approval process. These same providers should also familiarize themselves with the contents of AC61-83E, as well as Volumes 1-3 of the FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS) and System Safety training documents located on the FAA's Web site at http://www.faa.gov/avr/afs/FITS/training.cfm.Start Signature
