After issuing the August 12, 2014 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concerning the NTSB's event investigation procedures (79 FR 47064), representatives from other Federal agencies contacted the NTSB to inform us they would need more time to submit comments. After considering these requests, and in light of the comprehensive nature of the NPRM, we believe it prudent to extend the comment period to October 31, 2014.

In accordance with 49 CFR 800.24(c), the Board has delegated to the General Counsel the authority to “[a]pprove or disapprove, for good cause shown, requests to extend the time for filing comments on proposed new or amended regulations.” I find good cause exists to provide the public additional time to submit thorough comments. Based on this authority, I submit this notice to extend the comment period for the NPRM concerning 49 CFR part 831 to October 31, 2014.
