OMB Approval Number: 3072–0045 (Expires March 31, 2007). Abstract: Section 4 of the Shipping Act of 1984, 46 U.S.C. 40301, identifies certain commercial agreements by or among ocean common carriers that fall within the jurisdiction of that Act. Section 5 of the Act, 46 U.S.C. 40302, requires that carriers file those agreements with the Federal Maritime Commission. Section 6 of the Act, 46 U.S.C. 40304, specifies the Commission actions that may be taken with respect to filed agreements, including requiring the submission of additional information. Section 15 of the Act, 46 U.S.C. 40104, authorizes the Commission to require that ocean common carriers, among other persons, file periodic reports. Requests for additional information and the filing of periodic reports are meant to assist the Commission in fulfilling its statutory mandate of overseeing the activities of the ocean transportation industry.

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 staff uses the information filed by agreement parties to monitor their activities as required by the Shipping Act of 1984. Under the general standard set forth in section 6(g) of the Act, 46 U.S.C. 41307, the Commission must determine whether filed agreements will have substantially anticompetitive effects on prevailing trade conditions and, if so, whether the agreements will likely, by a reduction in competition, result in an unreasonable reduction in competition, result in an unreasonable reduction in transportation service or an unreasonable increase in transportation cost. If it is shown, based on information collected under this rule, that an agreement is likely to have the foregoing adverse effects, the Commission may bring suit in U.S. District Court to enjoin the operation of that agreement. The information collected is not disclosed to the public and is only for internal analysis in support of the Commission’s decisionmaking process. Frequency: This information is collected generally on a quarterly basis or as required under the rules. Type of Respondents: The types of respondents are ocean common carriers and marine terminal operators subject to the Shipping Act of 1984. Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential annual respondent universe of 574 entities. Estimated Time Per Response: The average time for filing agreements, including the preparation and submission of information required on Form FMC–150, Information Form for Agreements Between or Among Ocean Common Carriers, is estimated to be 37 person-hours per response. The average time for completing Form FMC–151, Monitoring Report for Agreements Between or Among Ocean Common Carriers, is estimated to range between 40 to 250 person-hours per response, depending on the complexity of the required information. The total average time for reporting and recordkeeping for all responses is 18.75 person-hours.

The FR Y–12 data are not considered confidential, however, bank holding companies may request confidential treatment pursuant to Sections (b)(4) and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)). The FR Y–12A data would be considered confidential on the basis that disclosure of specific commercial or financial data relating to investments held for extended periods of time could result in substantial harm to the competitive position of the financial holding company pursuant to the FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)). Abstract: The FR Y–12 collects data from certain domestic bank holding companies on their equity investments in nonfinancial companies on four schedules: Type of Investments, Type of Security, Type of Entity within the Banking Organization, and Nonfinancial Investment Transactions during Reporting Period. The FR Y–12 data serve as an important risk–monitoring device for institutions active in this business line by allowing the Federal Reserve to monitor an institution’s activity between review dates. It also serves as an early warning mechanism to identify institutions whose activities in this area are growing rapidly and therefore warrant special supervisory attention. Current actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to extend for three years, without revision, the FR Y–12. In addition, the Federal Reserve proposes to implement a companion reporting form, the FR Y–12A, effective December 31, 2006. The proposed FR Y–12A is E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1
