JO 7400.2J
Effective Date:
February 9, 2012

Subject:  Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters
Includes:  Change 3 effective 8/22/13, Change 2 effective 3/7/13, Change 1 effective 7/26/12 and  Errata effective 2/9/12.


Explanation of Changes

Direct questions through appropriate facility/service center office staff
to the Office of Primary Interest (OPI).

a. 3-3-4. Naming of waypoints, intersections, and DME fixes

A fix or waypoint name change is required if a fix/waypoint is moved 1 nautical mile (NM) or more unless operational requirements dictate otherwise. This change keeps the terminology the same as it is currently published and only changes the numerical value. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7400.28, Naming of Waypoints, Intersections, and DME Fixes, effective September 19, 2011.

b.Entire publication.

In compliance with FAA Order 1000.36, FAA Writing Standards, the word “shall” is replaced with “must” to ensure plain language standards are applied (with few exceptions).

Now that Flight Service Stations (FSS) nationwide are using modern automated operational systems, there is no longer a need for identifying certain sites as “automated." Therefore, the term has been removed from the publication.

c. Additional editorial/format changes were made where necessary. Revision bars were not used because of the insignificant nature of these changes.
