Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
Final rule; technical amendment.
This action corrects a paragraph reference that appeared in the final rule, Airworthiness Standards; Airframe Rules Based on European Joint Aviation Requirements, which the FAA published in the Federal Register on February 9, 1996. In that final rule, the FAA inadvertently changed a paragraph reference. The intent of this action is to correct the error in the regulation to ensure the requirement is clear and accurate.

On February 9, 1996, the FAA published in the Federal Register (61 FR 5147) a final rule that amended § 23.573(b) by removing the reference “§ 23.571(c)” and adding the reference “§ 23.571(a)(3)” in its place. Paragraph (a)(3) of § 23.571 does not exist, and the reference to § 23.571(c) should have remained. This document corrects § 23.573(b) to reflect the correct paragraph reference, § 23.571(c). This correction will not impose any additional requirements.
This technical amendment will correct § 23.573(b) to properly reference § 23.571(c).
Justification for Immediate Adoption
Because this action corrects an incorrect paragraph reference, the FAA finds that notice and public comment 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. 553(d) for making this rule effective upon publication.Start List of Subjects
