Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other for profit entities; not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 500. Estimated Time per Response: 1 hour. Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping, on occasion reporting requirements, third party disclosure. Total Annual Burden: 500 hours. Total Annual Costs: $625. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: On February 13, 2003, the FCC adopted a Memorandum Opinion and Order (MO&O) and Further Notice of Proposed Rule Making, in the Revision of Part 15 of the Commission’s Rules Regarding Ultra-Wideband Transmission System, ET Docket No. 98–153. Section 15.525—Coordination requirements—the Commission revised the rules to the effect that initial operation in a particular area does not require prior approval from the FCC to operate the equipment. The First Report and Order required operators of the Ultra Wideband (UWB) imaging systems to coordinate with other Federal agencies via the FCC and to obtain approval before the UWB equipment may be used. Under the rules adopted in the MO&O, initial operation in a particular area may not commence until the information has been sent to the Commission and no prior approval is required. The information will be used to coordinate the operation of the Ultra Wideband transmission systems in order to avoid interference with sensitive U.S. Government radio systems. The UWB operators will be required to provide the name, address and other pertinent contact information of the user, the desired geographical area of operation, and the FCC ID number, and other nomenclature of the UWB device. This information will be collected by the Commission and forwarded to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA under the U.S. Department of Commerce. This information collection is essential to controlling potential interference to Federal radio communications. Since initial operation in a particular area does not require prior approval from the FCC to operate the equipment, we have reduced the amount of time per response to 1 hour.
