SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 4, 2012, the FAA published a final rule entitled 
``Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Requirements'' (77 FR 330). In that 
rule, the FAA created a new part, part 117, which replaced the then-
existing flight, duty, and rest regulations for part 121 passenger 
operations. As part of this rulemaking, the FAA also applied the new 
part 117 to certain part 91 operations, and it permitted all-cargo 
operations operating under part 121 to voluntarily opt into the part 
117 flight, duty, and rest regulations.
    Subsequent to publication, the FAA discovered several issues 
requiring a technical correction in the regulatory text of the rule and 
published a final rule, technical correction on February 6, 2013 (78 FR 
8361). The FAA realized that the effective date in this rule was 
inadvertently changed from January 4, 2014, to January 14, 2014.
    This technical correction changes the effective date to January 4, 
2014.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on February 11, 2013.

Acting Assistant Chief Counsel for International Law, Legislation, and 
Regulations.
