SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OMB Control Number: 3060-0398.

Title: Equipment Authorization Measurement Standards, 47 CFR §§ 2.948 and 15.117(g)(2).

Form Number: N/A.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities.

Number of Respondents: 320.

Estimated Time per Response: 5 to 30 hours.

Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping; One-time, three year, and on occasion reporting requirement; Third party disclosure.

Total Annual Burden: 9,100 hours.

Total Annual Cost: None.

Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s).

Needs and Uses: The Commission uses this information to ensure that data accompanying all requests for equipment authorization are valid, and that proper testing procedures are used. Testing ensures that potential interference to radio communications is controlled, and if necessary, the data may be used for investigating complaints or harmful interference, or for verifying the manufacturer's compliance with FCC rules. The Commission eliminated the necessity for manufacturers to file UHF noise figure data documenting the performance of TV receivers tested and marketed in the U.S. in ET Docket 95-144.

OMB Control Number: 3060-0436.

Title: Equipment Authorization—Cordless Telephone Security Coding.

Form Number: N/A.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities.

Number of Respondents: 100.

Estimated Time per Response: 1.5 hours.

Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping; One time and on occasion reporting requirements; Third party disclosure.

Total Annual Burden: 150 hours.

Total Estimated Cost: None.

Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s).

Needs and Uses: The Commission requires that cordless telephone security features protect the public switched telephone network from unintentional line seizure and telephone dialing. These features prevent unauthorized access to the telephone line, the dialing of calls in response to signals other than those from the owner's handset and the unintentional ringing of a cordless telephone handset. Use of the cordless telephone security features reduces the harm caused by some cordless telephones to the “911” Emergency Service Telephone System and the telephone network in general.

OMB Control Number: 3060-0387.

Title: Section 15.201(d), On Site Verification of Field Disturbance Sensors.

Form Number: N/A.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities.

Number of Respondents: 200.

Estimated Time per Response: 18 hours.

Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping; One and on occasion reporting requirements; Third party disclosure.

Total Annual Burden: 3,600 hours.

Total Estimated Cost: $40,000.

Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s).

Needs and Uses: Commission rules permit the operation of field disturbance sensors in the low VHF region of the spectrum. In order to monitor non-licensed field disturbance sensors operating in the low VHF television bands, a unique procedure for on-site equipment testing of the systems is required to ensure suitable safeguards for the operation of these devices. Data are retained by the holder of the equipment authorized/issued by the Commission and made available only at the request of the Commission.
