Information Collection Request

Title: Great Lakes Pilotage.

OMB Control Number: 1625-0086.

Summary: The Office of Great Lakes Pilotage is seeking OMB's approval to change Great Lakes Pilotage data collection requirements for the three U.S. pilot associations it regulates. This change would require submission of data to an electronic data collection system. This new system is identified as the Great Lakes Electronic Pilot Management System. This electronic system replaces the manual paper submissions previously used to collect data on bridge hours; vessel delay, detention, cancellation, and moveage; pilot travel; revenues; pilot availability; and related data. This change will ensure that the required data is available in a timely manner and will allow immediate accessibility to data crucial from both an operational and ratemaking standpoint. Currently, this information is being recorded manually.

Need: To comply with the statutory and regulatory requirements respecting the ratemaking and oversight functions imposed upon the agency.

Respondents: Three U.S. Pilot Associations and Individual Pilots on the Great Lakes.

Frequency: Daily.

Burden Estimate: The estimated burden remains 18 hours a year.
