DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AJ17 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Prohibition on Personal Use of Electronic Devices on the Flight Deck (Personal Use of PEDs) 
Abstract: This rulemaking will prohibit flight crewmembers in part 121 operations from using a wireless communications device or laptop computer for personal use while at their duty station while the aircraft is being operated. This rulemaking will also clarify that this prohibition does not apply to the use of wireless communications devices for a purpose directly related to operation of the aircraft. The action is necessary to mitigate distractions in the cockpit, increase situational awareness, and reinforce sterile cockpit procedures, as recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Additionally, this action is necessary to conform with the requirements of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-95, sec. 307).
