10. What if FAA needs to meet with interested 

persons to discuss the proposal after the com-
ment period has closed? 

If FAA determines that it would be helpful 

to meet with a person or group after the 
close of the comment period to discuss a 
course of action to be taken, we will an-
nounce the meeting in the F

. We will also consider reopening the 

comment period. If an inappropriate ex parte 
contact does occur after the comment period 
closes, a summary of the contact and a copy 
of any material distributed during meeting 
will be placed in the docket if it could be 
seen as influencing the rulemaking process. 

11. Under what circumstances will FAA reopen 

the comment period? 

If we receive an ex parte communication 

after the comment period has closed that 
could substantially influence the rule-
making, we may reopen the comment period. 
DOT policy requires the agency to carefully 
consider whether the substance of the con-
tact will give the commenter an unfair ad-
vantage, since the rest of the public may not 
see the record of the contact in the docket. 
When the substance of a proposed rule is sig-
nificantly changed as a result of such an oral 
communication, DOT policy and practice re-
quires that the comment period be reopened 
by issuing a supplemental NPRM in which 
the reasons for the change are discussed. 

12. What if I have important information for 

FAA and the comment period is closed? 

You may always provide FAA with written 

information after the close of the comment 
period and it will be considered if time per-
mits. Because contacts after the close of the 
comment may not be seen by other inter-
ested persons, if they substantially and spe-
cifically influence the FAA’s decision, we 
may need to reopen the comment period.
