Title: Reports by Carriers on Incidents Involving Animals During Air Transport.
OMB Control Number: 2105-0552.Start Printed Page 57631
Type of Request: Extension without change of a previously approved collection.
Abstract: The requested extension of the approved control number covers the information collection request (ICR) OMB No. 2105-0552, “Reports by Carriers on Incidents Involving Animals During Air Transport,” which the Department of Transportation codified at 14 CFR 234.13. Section 234.13, which implements Section 710 of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR-21) [i.e., Public Law 106-810], requires U.S. air carriers that provide scheduled service to submit a monthly report on any incidents involving the loss, injury or death of an animal during air transport to the Department's Aviation Consumer Protection Division (ACPD). “Animal” is defined in the rule as any warm- or cold-blooded animal which, at the time of transportation, is being kept as a pet in a family household in the United States. The information gathered from the airline reports is published in DOT's Air Travel Consumer Report to provide the public with a valuable tool to use in choosing which air carrier to travel with when traveling with a pet.
Respondents: Air carriers that transport pets.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 30.
Estimated Total Burden on Respondents: 360 hours (Respondents (30) × Frequency (12 per year)).
Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.Start Signature
