Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 18824 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 76 / Friday, April 21, 2017 / Notices or part of the requirements of the RWD for a total of 149 hours (14.9 hours per petition). Neither FRA nor ARI accounted for this potential burden previously. Overall, FRA’s modified estimates amount to 83,440 hours. For the reasons outlined above, FRA believes this revised total is more accurate and more reasonable than its original estimates 2 and ARI’s estimate of 176,092 hours. Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of this notice’s publication. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. The summary below describes the ICR and its expected burden. FRA is submitting this renewal request for clearance by OMB as the PRA requires. Title: Railworthiness Directive (RWD) RWD 2016–01 [REVISED] (previously approved by OMB under the title Railworthiness Directive for Certain Tank Cars Equipped with Bottom Outlet Valve Assembly and Constructed by American Railcar Industries and ACF Industries). OMB Control Number: 2130–0616. Abstract: An FRA investigation identified a certain design of specification DOT–111 tank cars that ARI and ACF manufactured using welding practices not in conformance with Federal regulations and Association of American Railroads’ welding specifications. The cars are built to the ARI and ACF 300 stub sill design and equipped with a two-piece cast sump and BOV skid. As a result of the non-conforming welding practices, these cars may have substantial weld defects at the sump and BOV skid groove attachment welds, potentially affecting each tank’s ability to retain its contents during transportation. On September 30, 2016, FRA issued the initial RWD. On November 18, 2016, 2 FRA notes its December 21, 2016, 60-day Federal Register notice contained an error in math. The total burden in that notice should have been 30,240 hours higher (for a total burden of 53,164 hours). See 81 FR 93725. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Apr 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 FRA issued a Revised Directive. The Revised Directive requires owners to: (1) Identify tank cars in their fleet covered by the Directive; and (2) ensure appropriate inspection and testing of each tank car’s sump and BOV skid groove attachment welds to ensure no flaw exists which could result in the loss of tank integrity. This ICR applies to the Revised Directive. Type of Request: Regular clearance of an information collection previously approved under emergency processing procedures. Affected Public: Businesses (tank car owners, shippers, and tank car facilities). Form(s): N/A. Total Estimated Annual Responses: 92,250. Total Estimated Annual Burden: 83,440 hours. Addressee: Send comments regarding these information collections to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: FRA Desk Officer. Comments may also be sent via email to OMB at the following address: oira_submissions@ omb.eop.gov. Comments are invited on the following: Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for DOT to properly perform its functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of DOT’s estimates of the burden of the proposed information collections; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collections of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
