Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Abstract: TSA is requesting approval to revise this collection of information to comply with 49 U.S.C. 44935, which requires TSA to establish qualification standards for the employment of security screening personnel. With approval from OMB, TSA currently collects information via a Transportation Security Officer (TSO) Medical Questionnaire.

TSA also seeks approval to include additional supplemental medical forms, which are required in circumstances where TSA needs the additional medical information to make a determination regarding the candidate’s qualifications for the TSO job. Only those TSOs who are required to undergo a follow-up medical exam will be required to bring a supplemental form (or forms) to the exam, a portion of which their physician will complete. This collection of information assists the agency in ensuring that candidates under employment consideration for TSO positions meet the qualification standards to perform the functions of the positions successfully. TSA collects the information through a medical questionnaire and supplemental forms. Estimated Number of Respondents: 57,038. After further evaluation of the annual respondent population, TSA is revising the estimate noted in its April 2006 notice from 22,800 respondents. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 19,013. After further evaluation of the respondent population and hour burden estimate, TSA is revising the estimate E:\FR\FM\24AUN1.SGM 24AUN1
