OMB Control Number: 2115-0617.
Summary: This collection requires the submission of identifying information such as vessels' names and identification numbers. A written request to the Coast Guard is necessary.
Need: The Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1990, which amended 46 U.S.C. 2110, requires the Coast Guard to collect users' fees from inspected vessels. To properly collect and manage these fees, the Coast Guard must have current information on identification. This collection helps to ensure that we collect and manage these fees efficiently.
Respondents: Owners of vessels.
Burden Estimate: The estimated burden is 4,648 hours annually.
2. Title: Characteristics of Liquid Chemicals Proposed for Movement in Bulk by Water.
OMB No. 2115-0016.
Summary: The Coast Guard requires manufacturers of new chemicals to submit data on the chemicals. From these data, the Coast Guard determines the appropriate precautions to take.
Need: Under 46 CFR parts 30 to 40, 151, 153, and 154, the Coast Guard regulates the transportation of hazardous materials. Because of its nature, the chemical industry is always producing new chemicals, which it must ship. Each of these has unique characteristics that entail special attention to its mode of shipment.
Respondents: Manufacturers of chemicals.
Frequency: On occasion.
Burden Estimate: The estimated burden is 129 hours annually.Start Signature
