Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; technical amendment.

SUMMARY:

This action updates the Department of Transportation (DOT) addresses, changes references from the Docket Management System to the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS), and removes obsolete information listed in FAA regulations as a result of DOT's relocation, migration to the Federal electronic docket system, and closure of the DOT Branch Library. The intended effect of this action is to ensure that the regulated public is informed of address changes, electronic docket changes, and other administrative matters.

DATES:

Effective December 5, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This technical amendment addresses the following administrative changes—

(1) The Department of Transportation (DOT) relocation of its entire headquarters to 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC;

(2) The DOT migration to the governmentwide electronic Federal Document Management System (FDMS) which replaces the old DOT Docket Management System (DMS); and

(3) Closure of DOT Transportation Branch Library.

As a result of these changes, the FAA is amending 14 CFR parts 11, 13, 17, 36, 91, 139, 150, 193, 404, and 406.

Because these actions are merely administrative in nature and removes outdated references, the FAA finds that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 5553(d) for making this amendment effective upon publication.
