In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. FAR Part 43 prescribes the rules governing maintenance, rebuilding, and alteration of aircraft components, and is necessary to ensure this work is performed by qualified persons, and at proper intervals. This work is done by certified mechanics, repair stations, and air carriers authorized to perform major alterations and major repairs. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on August 27, 2010, vol. 75, no. 166, page 52803. Comments were received on the frequency of the collection reported in that notice, which has been revised in this notice to read that information is collected “as needed.” Other comments were received regarding the annual burden reported on the previous notice. The estimated average burden per response has been revised in this notice, and the annual hourly burden has also been recalculated and revised for better accuracy.
Written comments should be submitted by January 6, 2011.Start Further Info
