AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice and request for comments.

SUMMARY:

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. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on August 27, 2018.

The collection involves the compilation of:

  • Commissioning data, such as the initial standards and tolerances parameters for the aerial navigation aids (NavAids) and electrical/electronic facilities, owned and operated by non-Federal sponsors;
  • Maintenance activities and operational history, such as outages and repairs, for facilities owned and operated by non-Federal sponsors; and
  • The facilities' periodically verified parameters for the life of the facility.

The information collected is necessary to ensure that operation and maintenance of these non-Federally owned facilities is in accordance with FAA safety standards.

DATES:

Written comments should be submitted by November 26, 2018.

ADDRESSES:

Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. Comments should be addressed to the attention of the Desk Officer, Department of Transportation/FAA, and sent via electronic mail to oira_submission@omb.eop.gov, or faxed to (202) 395-6974, or mailed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Docket Library, Room 10102, 725 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20503.

Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OMB Control Number: 2120-0014.

Title: Procedures for Non-Federal Navigation Facilities.

Form Numbers: FAA Form 6000-10; FAA Form 6000-8; FAA Form; 6030-1.

Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.

Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on August 27, 2018 (83 FR 43724). Title 14 CFR part 171 establishes procedures and requirements for non-Federal sponsors, (“non-Federal sponsors” refers to entities such as state and local governments, businesses, and private citizens) to purchase, install, operate, and maintain electronic NavAids for use by the flying public, in the National Airspace System (NAS). Part 171 describes procedures for receiving permission to install a facility and requirements to keep it in service. Documenting the initial parameters during commissioning is necessary to have a baseline to reference during future inspections. Another requirement is recording maintenance tasks, removal from service, and any other repairs performed on these facilities in on-site logs to have an accurate history on the performance of the facility. In addition, at each periodic inspection, recording the facilities' current parameters provides performance information for the life of the facility. Records must be kept on site and the FAA must receive copies of the logs.

Respondents: Approximately 2,600 non-Federal navigation facilities—no more than 2,600 respondents.

Frequency: Information is collected (submitted to Inspectors) on occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 13.72 hours per year.

  • Form 6000-10, 1.72 hours per response
  • Form 6000-8, 30 minutes per response
  • Form 6030-1, 30 minutes per response

Estimated Total Annual Burden: Approximately 36,000 hours per year.
