On August 5, 2016, the FAA published a notice titled “Notice and Request for Comments” (81 FR 51963). In that Notice, the FAA announced a request for comments on the draft FAA Order 5500.1B. The notice requested that interested parties submit written comments by September 30, 2016.
On August 19, 2016, three industry associations (Airlines for America, Airports Council International—North America, and the American Association of Airport Executives) submitted a joint request to extend the comment period by 30 days for several reasons. After careful consideration, the FAA has decided to extend the comment period for 31 days until October 31, 2016.
