SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On January 4, 2012, the final rule, “Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Requirements” was published in the Federal Register (77 FR 330). In that rule, the FAA amended the FAA's existing flight, duty and rest regulations applicable to certain certificate holders and their flightcrew members operating under the domestic, flag, and supplemental operations rules.

The paperwork burden is comprised of five areas: fatigue risk management system, § 117.7; fatigue training, § 117.9; flight time limitation, § 117.11; flight duty period extension reporting, § 117.19; and emergency and government sponsored operations, § 117.29. The information collection requirements had not been approved by OMB at the time of publication.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the FAA submitted a copy of the new information collection requirements to OMB for its review. OMB approved the collection on May 4, 2012, and assigned the information collection OMB Control Number 2120-0751, which expires on May 31, 2015.

This document is being published to inform affected parties of the approval, and to announce that as of January 4, 2014, affected parties are required to comply with the new information collection requirements in §§ 117.7, 117.9, 117.11, 117.19, and 117.29.

Issued in Washington, DC, on June 21, 2012.
