Notice and request for comments.


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 28, 2018. The burden in this 30-day notice is less than the burden published in the 60-day notice. The 60-day notice burden included a one-time training obligation that is complete. Persons requesting to obtain an initial air agency certificate for a repair station or changes to an existing repair station (air agency) certificate are required to submit this request in a format acceptable to the FAA. Repair stations perform maintenance, preventive maintenance, alterations of aircraft and aircraft components and parts thereof. In order to remain consistent and provide ease of application, the FAA designed and made available to the public the FAA Form 8310-3 Application for Repair Station Certificate and/or Rating. The form provides space for the applicant to provide certification information such as, but not limited to, ratings sought, physical place of business, ownership, and request to contract maintenance functions. The applicants submit FAA Form 8310-3 to the FAA Flight Standards Office closest to the proposed place of business for initial certification. The information collected is necessary to obtain repair station certification or if currently certificated, a change in ratings, changes in ownership, changes in the physical location of the repair station, or any other purpose the applicant deems appropriate.


Written comments should be submitted by November 28, 2018.


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 Start Printed Page 54414to the attention of the Desk Officer, Department of Transportation/FAA, and sent via electronic mail to, 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.
