Comments Invited

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information, unless it displays a valid OMB control number. With this notice, TSA solicits comments on the collection of information described below, in order to evaluate the necessity of the collection, the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden, the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and possible ways to minimize the burden of the collection in preparation for submission to renew clearance of the following information collection:

Security Programs for Foreign Air Carriers, 49 CFR part 1546; 2110-0006. The Federal Aviation Administration initially required this collection under 14 CFR part 129 (now 49 CFR part 1546) and cleared under OMB control number 2120-0536. The responsibility for the collection has been transferred to TSA and assigned OMB control number 2110-0006. The information collected is used to determine compliance with 49 CFR part 1546 and to ensure passenger safety by monitoring foreign air carrier security procedures. These security programs establish procedures that foreign air carriers must carry out to protect persons and property against acts of criminal violence, aircraft piracy, and terrorist activities. The current estimated annual reporting burden is 5,193 hours.
