OMB has since approved that collection of information as Information Collection number 1625–0110, Maritime Identification Credentials—Title 33 CFR Part 125.

These sections are known as the ‘‘new hire’’ provision. The ‘‘new hire’’ provision requirements affecting Homeport were added to collection 1625–0110 ‘‘Maritime Identification Credentials— Title 33 CFR Part 125,’’ which expired on November 30, 2006. The three year renewal for 1625–0110 was submitted to OMB on October 6, 2006, and an amendment to that renewal reflecting changes due to the ‘‘new hire’’ provision was submitted to OMB on December 29, 2006. The revision changed the collection, once the TWIC program goes into effect, to make the submission of new hire information voluntary but require owners and operators to wait until they receive a positive verification from Homeport before granting unescorted access to the new hire. The government’s need for the information, the type of information to be submitted, the method of submission, and the frequency of submission should not change from the previously approved collection.

ACTION: Confirmation of effective date; approval of new Collection of 
Information (COI).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In the final rule with this same title published January 25, 
2007, we noted that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) had not 
approved an extension and change to the collection of information 
associated with the amendments to 33 CFR 104.267, 105.257 and 106.262, 
requiring vessel and facility owners and operators wishing to grant 
unescorted access to a new hire prior to receipt of a TWIC to enter the 
new employee information into a Coast Guard owned and maintained Web 
site, homeport.uscg.mil, and await results of an expedited threat 
assessment. OMB has since approved that collection of information as 
Information Collection number 1625-0110, Maritime Identification 
Credentials--Title 33 CFR Part 125. The change was requested to extend 
an existing collection that was due to expire, and expand the 
collection to include the collection of information for the ``new 
hire'' provisions.

DATES: 33 CFR 104.267, 105.257, and 106.262, published January 25, 2007 
(72 FR 3492) will be effective March 26, 2007. The OMB approval was 
granted on January 12, 2007, and expires January 31, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sections 104.267, 105.257 and 106.262 of 
title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provide an option for 
owners, operators or security officers of MTSA regulated vessels or 
facilities to enter new employee information into a Coast Guard owned 
and maintained Web site, homeport.uscg.mil, and await the results of an 
expedited threat assessment in order to grant the new employee 
unescorted access prior to receipt of a TWIC. These sections are known 
as the ``new hire'' provision.
    The ``new hire'' provision requirements affecting Homeport were 
added to collection 1625-0110 ``Maritime Identification Credentials--
Title 33 CFR Part 125,'' which expired on November 30, 2006. The three 
year renewal for 1625-0110 was submitted to OMB on October 6, 2006, and 
an amendment to that renewal reflecting changes due to the ``new hire'' 
provision was submitted to OMB on December 29, 2006. The revision 
changed the collection, once the TWIC program goes into effect, to make 
the submission of new hire information voluntary but require owners and 
operators to wait until they receive a positive verification from 
Homeport before granting unescorted access to the new hire. The 
government's need for the information, the type of information to be 
submitted, the method of submission, and the frequency of submission 
should not change from the previously approved collection.
    Submitting the new hire information is a collection of information 
under OMB control no. 1625-0110. The final rule that contained the 
provisions for these submissions was published in the Federal Register 
on January 25, 2007, and is available electronically through the docket 
(USCG-2006-24196) Web site at http://dms.dot.gov/ and will become 
effective on March 26, 2007.
    As required by 44 U.S.C. 3507(d), we submitted a copy of the final 
rule to OMB for its review. On January 12, 2007, after reviewing the 
rule, OMB approved the collection of information required by this final 
rule under OMB control no. 1625-0110.
