Public Participation and Request for Comments

This Notice relies on the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended. An ICR is an application to OIRA seeking the approval, extension, or renewal of a Coast Guard collection of information (Collection). The ICR contains information describing the Collection's purpose, the Collection's likely burden on the affected public, an explanation of the necessity of the Collection, and other important information describing the Collection. There is one ICR for each Collection.

In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments addressing: (1) The practical utility of the Collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the Collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of information subject to the Collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the Collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. These comments will help OIRA determine whether to approve the ICR referred to in this Notice.

This request provides a 30-day comment period required by OIRA. The Start Printed Page 37465Coast Guard has published the 60-day notice (82 FR 10375, February 10, 2017) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That Notice elicited no comments. Accordingly, no changes have been made to the Collections.

Information Collection Request

Title: National Response Resource Inventory.

OMB Control Number: 1625-0102.

Summary: The information is needed to improve the effectiveness of deploying response equipment in the event of an oil spill. It may also be used in the development of contingency plans.

Need: Section 4202 of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-380) requires the Coast Guard to compile and maintain a comprehensive list of spill removal equipment in a response resource inventory (RRI). This collection helps fulfill that requirement.

Forms: None.

Respondents: Oil spill removal organizations.

Frequency: On occasion.

Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden has decreased from 1,752 hours to 1,378 hours a year. The change in burden is due to a change in the methodology for calculating burden. In past ICRs we did not differentiate between the industry hour burden for inputting a new RRI submission or updating an existing RRI submission. In this ICR, we estimate that it takes fewer hours (i.e., 50 percent fewer hours) to review/update an existing RRI submission than to input a new submission.
