DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AK34 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Flammability Requirements for Transport Category Airplanes (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the regulations on compartment interior fire protection to eliminate unnecessary testing, improve safety in inaccessible areas, and present the requirements as performance standards on the basis of threat. These changes are necessary as the current requirements result in unnecessary testing, are lacking in the areas most vulnerable to in-flight fire, and lack of standardization. These changes will improve safety and reduce costs.
