Background and Purpose On April 26, 2006, the Coast Guard published a notice (71 FR 24732) that announced voluntary interim measures for certain domestic vessels to account for increased passenger and vessel weight when determining the number of passengers permitted. The notice included a discussion on the typical restriction to ‘‘reasonable operating conditions’’ placed on the Certificate of Inspection (COI) of vessels that are designed only for operation on protected waters. Under the recommended voluntary measures for prudent operation for all small passenger vessels, the notice advised that reasonable operating conditions do not include conditions associated with a small craft advisory as well as other specific wind and wave conditions. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), a small craft advisory is issued to alert small craft—generally vessels less than 65 feet in length—to sustained (more than 2 hours) hazardous weather or sea conditions that may be either present or forecasted. Upon learning of such an advisory, the NWS urges mariners to immediately determine the reason and to monitor the latest marine broadcast. See http:// www.weather.gov/glossary. The April notice also discussed increased passenger weight and identified the means by which the Coast Guard typically evaluates a small passenger vessel’s stability. This notice updates the voluntary measures for prudent operation published in the Federal Register on April 26, 2006, by clarifying guidance in the previous notice on reasonable operating conditions and the vessels to which that guidance applies. The Coast Guard received numerous comments from the public in response to the April 26, 2006, notice. PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64547 Advisory Actions Updated Voluntary Measures for Prudent Operation: All Small Passenger Vessels The recommendation given in the April 26, 2006, notice to owners and operators of all small passenger vessels certificated only for operation on protected waters is amended as follows to further clarify ‘‘reasonable operating conditions’’: (1) For passenger pontoon vessels, voluntarily operate in ‘‘reasonable operating conditions,’’ which do not include: • Wind gusts over 30 knots (35 miles per hour); • Waves over two feet; • Sustained winds over 18 knots (21 miles per hour); or • Conditions associated with a small craft advisory. (2) For other small passenger, nonsailing vessels certificated to operate only on protected waters and that are less than 65 feet, give special consideration to the ‘‘reasonable operating conditions’’ as set forth in item (1) above while complying with the requirements of 46 CFR 185.304 or 122.304. The Coast Guard expects that small passenger vessel owners and operators are aware of and follow the guidelines presented in the April 26, 2006 notice as supplemented by this notice. The Coast Guard is in the process of more formally addressing stability issues caused by increases in passenger and vessel weight for all domestic vessels. Dated: October 25, 2006. C.E.

Information Collection Requirement

    TSA is seeking to renew its OMB control number, 1652-0003, Aircraft 
Operator Security. TSA has implemented aircraft operator security 
standards at 49 CFR part 1544, which requires each aircraft operator to 
adopt and implement a security program. As part of these security 
programs, aircraft operators are required to maintain and update, as 
necessary, records of compliance with the security program provisions 
outlined in part 1544. This regulation also requires aircraft operators 
to make their security programs and associated records available for 
inspection by TSA to ensure security, safety, and regulatory 
compliance. Under this regulation, aircraft operators must ensure 
flightcrew members and employees with unescorted access authority or 
who perform screening functions submit to a criminal history records 
check (CHRC); to conduct the CHRC, these individuals must provide 
identifying information, including fingerprints. The collection 
requirements associated with aircraft operator security programs remain 
critical in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 
2001. The current estimated annual reporting burden for an estimated 80 
respondent air carriers is 41,600 hours.
