Start Supplemental Information
On June 28, 2016, the FAA and the Office of the Secretary of Transportation published a final rule entitled Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems. The rule adds a new part 107 to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) to allow for routine civil operation of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the NAS and to provide safety rules for those operations. The final rule resulted in new and revised information collection requirements.
As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3507(d)), the FAA submitted these information collection amendments to OMB for its review. On August 12 and 15, 2016, OMB approved the information collection requests. The pertinent OMB control numbers are 2120-0005, 2120-0021, 2120-0027, 2120-0767, and 2120-0768.
Updating OMB Control Numbers in Part 11
The FAA lists OMB control numbers assigned to its information collection activities in 14 CFR 11.201(b). Accordingly, this final rule updates 14 CFR 11.201(b) to display OMB control numbers 2120-0005, 2120-0021, 2120-0027, 2120-0767, and 2120-0768 associated with the information collection activities in the final rule, Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems. See 81 FR 42063. This final rule also removes from 14 CFR 11.201(b) the OMB control numbers for 14 CFR parts 108 and 109, as those parts were removed by a joint FAA and Transportation Security Administration final rule, Civil Aviation Security Rules, published on February 22, 2002. See 67 FR 8340.
Because this rule concerns agency organization, procedure or practice, the FAA finds that the notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A) are unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make the amendment effective in less than 30 days.
