Information Collection Request
1. Title: Alternative Compliance for International and Inland Navigation Rules—33 CFR Parts 81 and 89.
OMB Control Number: 2115-0073.
Summary: The information collected provides an opportunity for the owner, operator, builder, or agent of a unique vessel to present her or his reasons why the vessel cannot comply with existing International or Inland Navigation Rules and how it might achieve alternative compliance. If one is appropriate, the Coast Guard issues a Certificate of Alternative Compliance.
Need: Certain vessels cannot comply with the International Navigation Rules (33 U.S.C. chapter 30) or Inland Navigation Rules (33 U.S.C. chapter 34). The Coast Guard therefore provides an opportunity for alternative compliance. However, it cannot determine whether alternative compliance is appropriate, or what kind of alternative compliance might be necessary, without this collection.
Respondents: Owners, operators, builders, and agents of vessels.
Frequency: One-time application.
Burden Estimate: The estimated burden is 153 hours a year.Start Signature
