Title: 46 CFR Part 565—Controlled Carriers. OMB Approval Number: 3072–0060 (Expires August 31, 2005). Abstract: Section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984 requires that the FMC monitor the practices of controlled carriers to ensure that they do not maintain rates or charges in their tariffs and service contracts that are below a level that is just and reasonable; nor establish, maintain or enforce unjust or unreasonable classifications, rules or regulations in those tariffs or service contracts which result or are likely to result in the carriage or handling of cargo at rates or charges that are below a just and reasonable level. 46 CFR part 565 establishes the method by which the Commission determines whether a particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier subject to section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984. When a government acquires a controlling interest in an ocean common carrier, or when a controlled carrier newly enters a United States trade, the Commission’s rules require that such a carrier notify the Commission of these events. Current Actions: There are no changes to this information collection, and it is being submitted for extension purposes only. Type of Review: Extension. Needs and Uses: The Commission uses these notifications in order to effectively discharge its statutory duty to determine whether a particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier VerDate jul<14>2003 15:11 Jul 15, 2005 Jkt 205001 and therefore subject to the requirements of section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984.

Type of Respondents: Controlled carriers are ocean common carriers which are owned or controlled by a government. Number of Annual Respondents: Although it is estimated that only 5 of the 8 currently classified controlled carriers may respond in any given year, because this is a rule of general applicability, the Commission considers the number of annual respondents to be 8. The FMC cannot anticipate when a new carrier may enter the trade; therefore, the number of annual respondents could increase to 10 or more at any time. Estimated Time Per Response: The estimated time for compliance is 7 person-hours per year. Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the person-hour burden required to make such notifications at 56 person-hours per year.

burden at 1,574 person-hours.
    Title: 46 CFR Part 565--Controlled Carriers.
    OMB Approval Number: 3072-0060 (Expires August 31, 2005).
    Abstract: Section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984 requires that the 
FMC monitor the practices of controlled carriers to ensure that they do 
not maintain rates or charges in their tariffs and service contracts 
that are below a level that is just and reasonable; nor establish, 
maintain or enforce unjust or unreasonable classifications, rules or 
regulations in those tariffs or service contracts which result or are 
likely to result in the carriage or handling of cargo at rates or 
charges that are below a just and reasonable level. 46 CFR part 565 
establishes the method by which the Commission determines whether a 
particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier subject to 
section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984. When a government acquires a 
controlling interest in an ocean common carrier, or when a controlled 
carrier newly enters a United States trade, the Commission's rules 
require that such a carrier notify the Commission of these events.
    Current Actions: There are no changes to this information 
collection, and it is being submitted for extension purposes only.
    Type of Review: Extension.
    Needs and Uses: The Commission uses these notifications in order to 
effectively discharge its statutory duty to determine whether a 
particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier and therefore 
subject to the requirements of section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984.
    Frequency: The submission of notifications from controlled carriers 
is not assigned to a specific time frame by the Commission; they are 
submitted as circumstances warrant. The Commission only requires 
notification when a majority portion of an ocean common carrier becomes 
owned or controlled by a government, or when a controlled carrier newly 
begins operation in any United States trade.
    Type of Respondents: Controlled carriers are ocean common carriers 
which are owned or controlled by a government.
    Number of Annual Respondents: Although it is estimated that only 5 
of the 8 currently classified controlled carriers may respond in any 
given year, because this is a rule of general applicability, the 
Commission considers the number of annual respondents to be 8. The FMC 
cannot anticipate when a new carrier may enter the trade; therefore, 
the number of annual respondents could increase to 10 or more at any 
time.
    Estimated Time Per Response: The estimated time for compliance is 7 
person-hours per year.
    Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the person-hour 
burden required to make such notifications at 56 person-hours per year.

    Abstract: The Shipping Act of 1984, 46 U.S.C. app. 1707, requires 
service contracts, except those dealing with bulk cargo, forest 
products, recycled metal scrap, new assembled motor vehicles, waste 
paper or paper waste, and their related amendments and notices to be 
filed confidentially with the Commission.

collection, and it is being submitted for extension purposes only.

    Needs and Uses: The Commission monitors service contract filings 
for acts prohibited by the Shipping Act of 1984.
    Frequency: The Commission has no control over how frequently 
service contracts are entered into; this is solely a matter between the 
negotiating parties. When parties enter into a service contract, it 
must be filed with the Commission.
    Type of Respondents: Parties that enter into service contracts are 
ocean common carriers and agreements among ocean common carriers on the 
one hand, and shippers or shipper's associations on the other.
    Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates an annual 
respondent universe of 140.
    Estimated Time Per Response: The time per response for completing 
Form FMC-83 averages .5 person hours, and approximately 27 person-hours 
for reporting and recordkeeping requirements contained in the rules.

burden at 528,770 person-hours.
