Title: Request for Revocation of Authority Granted.

OMB Approval Number: 2126-0018.

Type of Request: Revision of a currently-approved information collection. This IC is being revised due to an increase in the number of Form OCE-46s filings from 1,000 to 3,250 per year.

Form Number: OCE-46.

Respondents: Motor carriers, freight forwarders and property brokers.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,250.

Estimated Time Per Response: 15 minutes.

Expiration Date: June 30, 2007.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 813 hours [3,250 annual Form OCE-46 filers × 15 minutes/60 minutes per filing = 812.5 hours, rounded to 813 hours].

Background: Title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) to promulgate regulations governing the registration of for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities (49 U.S.C. 13902), surface transportation freight forwarders (49 U.S.C. 13903), and property brokers (49 U.S.C. 13904). The FMCSA carries out this registration program under authority delegated by the Secretary. Under 49 U.S.C. 13905, each registration is effective from the date specified and remains in effect for such period as the Secretary determines appropriate by regulation. Section 13905(c) of title 49, U.S.C., grants the Secretary the authority to amend or revoke a registration at the registrant's request. On complaint, or on the Secretary's own initiative, the Secretary may also suspend, amend, or revoke any part of the registration of a motor carrier, broker, or freight forwarder for willful failure to comply with the regulations, an order of the Secretary, or a condition of its registration.

Form OCE-46 is used by transportation entities to voluntarily apply for revocation of their registration authority in whole or in part. FMCSA Start Printed Page 15933uses the form to seek information concerning the registrant's docket number, name and address, and the reasons for the revocation request.

Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this revised information collection request, including: (1) The necessity and usefulness of the information collection for the FMCSA to meet its goal in reducing truck crashes; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burdens; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways to minimize the collection burden without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
