PART 263—PARTICIPATION OF AIR

CARRIER ASSOCIATIONS IN BOARD

PROCEEDINGS Sec. 263.1 Definitions. 263.2 Approval of articles of association re

lating to participation in Board

proceedings. 263.3 Leave for participation of air carrier

associations in Board proceedings. AUTHORITY: The provisions of this Part 263 issued under secs. 102, 204, 412, 1001, 72 Stat. 740; sec. 3, 60 Stat. 238; 49 U.S.C. 1302, 1324, 1382, 1481; 6 U.S.C. 1002, unless otherwise noted.

SOURCE: The provisions of this Part 263 contained in ER-272, 24 F.R. 4883, June 16, 1959, unless otherwise noted. 8 263.1 Definitions.

For the purposes of this part:

(a) Air carrier association means an association composed entirely or in part of air carriers which are not exempted from the provisions of section 412 of the act in respect of relationships between one another.

(b) Board proceedings means any proceedings of the Board to which the Board's procedural regulations apply. 8 263.2 Approval of articles of associa.

tion relating to participation in Board

proceedings. The Board considers it adverse to the public interest, and contrary to the policy of the Federal Aviation Act, for an association created by agreement subject to approval under section 412 of the act, its oficers or employees, to participate in Board proceedings unless the articles of association contain provisions approved by the Board authorizing such participation, and the Board upon motion or upon its own initiative grants leave therefor. The Board therefore will ap

prove only such provisions as provide for participation of the association in Board proceedings under the following circumstances:

(1) Where the issues substantially affect the property or financial interests of the association as opposed to an interest derivative from its members;

(2) Where the association acts as & conduit to the Board of factual information gathered from the members, as distinguished from presentation of opinions or positions on issues; or

(3) Where the association represents certain named members at their request and a copy of a resolution authorizing such participation and signed by each such carrier is submitted to the Board.

NOTE: The requirement expressed in this paragraph and paragraph (3) of Section 263.3 shall be deemed fulfilled upon filing with the Board of powers of attorney signed by duly authorized officers of each carrier to be represented by the association in the particular Board proceeding. The air carriers 60 represented shall become the parties to the proceeding. The participation of the association is limited to acting as attorney-in-lact for such air carriers. (Interpret or apply sec. 6(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 60 Stat. 240; 5 U.S.C. 1005) (ER 272, 24 F.R. 4883, June 16, 1959, as amended by ER-294, 25 F.R. 901, Feb. 3, 1960) & 263.3 Leave for participation of air

carrier associations in Board pro

ceedings. An air carrier association, Its oficers or employees may participate in Board proceedings only if its articles of associetion or by-laws contain provisions approved by the Board under section 412 of the act authorizing such participation, and if the Board upon motion or upon its own initiative grants leave therefor. Leave ordinarily will be granted under the following circumstances:

(1) Where the issues substantially affect the property or financial interests of the association as opposed to an interest derivative from its members. In passing on motions for formal intervention of associations of air carriers in economic adjudicatory proceedings under $ 302.15 of the procedural regulations, the Board will be guided by the provisions of this section;
