Information Collection Requests
1. Title: Safety Approval of Cargo Containers.
OMB Control Number: 1625-0024.
Summary: This information collection requires owners and manufacturers of cargo containers to submit information and keep records associated with the approval and inspection of those containers. This information is needed to ensure compliance with the International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC)
Need: This collection of information addresses the reporting and recordkeeping requirements for containers in 49 CFR parts 450-453. These rules are necessary because the U.S. is signatory to the CSC. The CSC Start Printed Page 54301requires that all containers be safety approved before they are used in trade. These rules prescribe only the minimum requirements of the CSC.
Respondents: Owners and manufacturers of containers, and organizations that the Coast Guard delegates to act as an approval authority.
Frequency: On occasion.
Burden Estimate: The estimated burden is 73,272 hours a year.
2. Title: Outer Continental Shelf Activities—Title 33 CFR Subchapter N
OMB Control Number: 1625-0044.
Summary: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended, authorizes the Coast Guard to promulgate and enforce regulations promoting the safety of life and property on OCS facilities. These regulations are in 33 CFR, Chapter I, Subchapter N.
Need: The information is needed to ensure compliance with the safety regulations related to OCS activities. The regulations include reporting and recordkeeping requirements for annual inspections of fixed OCS facilities, employee citizenship records, station bills, emergency evacuation plans, and equivalency determinations.
Respondents: Operators of facilities and vessels engaged in activities on the OCS.
Frequency: On occasion.
Burden Estimate: The estimated burden is 5,867 hours a year.
3. Title: Adequacy Certification for Reception Facilities and Advance Notice—33 CFR Part 158.
OMB Control Number: 1625-0045.
Summary: This information collection is needed to evaluate the adequacy of reception facilities prior to issuance of a Certificate of Adequacy. Information for the advance notice ensures effective management of reception facilities and reduces the burden to facilities and ships.
Need: Section 1905 of 33 U.S.C. gives the Coast Guard the authority to certify the adequacy of reception facilities in ports. Reception facilities are needed to receive waste from ships which may not discharge at sea. Under these regulations, in 33 CFR part 151 and 158, there are discharge limitations for oil and oily waste, noxious liquid substances, plastics and other garbage.
Respondents: Owners and operators of reception facilities, and owners and operators of vessels.
Frequency: On occasion.
