Needs and Uses: This request is for a revision and extension of a currently approved information collection.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Coast Survey is the nation's nautical chartmaker, maintaining and updating over a thousand charts covering the 3.5 million square nautical miles of coastal waters in the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone and the Great Lakes. Coast Survey also writes and publishes the United States Coast Pilot®, a series of nine nautical books that supplement nautical charts with essential marine information that cannot be shown graphically on the charts and are not readily available elsewhere.

Revision: Until recently, Coast Survey asked readers of the Coast Pilot to submit corrections or reports of inaccuracies by mailing or faxing a printed form found in the book. That form was discontinued. Now Coast Survey solicits information through the online Nautical Discrepancy Reporting System (​idrs/​discrepancy.aspx).

Data obtained through this system is used to update U.S. nautical charts and the United States Coast Pilot.

Affected Public: Individuals or households.

Frequency: On occasion.

Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
