Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an issue to the extent that individuals’ and households’ information is contained in the OSCAR database, which is covered under the Commission’s system of records notice (SORN), FCC/CIB–1, ‘‘Informal Complaints and Inquiries.’’ The Commission believes that it provides sufficient safeguards to protect the privacy of individuals who file complaints under 47 CFR 79.2(c). Privacy Impact Assessment: Under development. Needs and Uses: 47 CFR 79.2 is designed to ensure that persons with hearing and visual disabilities have access to the critical details of emergency information. The Commission adopted the rules to assist persons with hearing disabilities on April 14, 2000, in the Second Report and Order in MM Docket No. 95–176. The Commission modified the rules to assist persons with visual disabilities on July 21, 2000, in the Report and Order in MM Docket No. 99–339. As the Commission noted in the previous PRA submission, the Commission adopted its rules for persons with different disabilities at different times. It previously provided for persons with hearing disabilities in OMB Control No. 3060–0945; and for persons with visual disabilities in OMB Control No. 3060– 0967. Because both sets of rules make use of the same complaint procedures, which are what triggered the PRA submissions, the Commission consolidated these two information collections and discontinued OMB information collection No. 3060–0945. 47 CFR 79.2(c) requires that each complaint transmitted to the Commission include the following: the name of the video programming distributor at issue; the date and time of the omission of the emergency information; and the type of emergency. The Commission then notifies the video programming distributor, which must reply within 30 days. OMB Control Number: 3060–0968. Title: Slamming Complaint Form. Form Number: FCC Form 501. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Individuals or households; Business or other for-profit entities; Not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 3,600.

Privacy Impact Assessment: Under development. Needs and Uses: On December 17, 1998, the Commission announced to the public via news release its plan to provide consumers with tools to better protect themselves from telephone related fraud, as well as offer consumers an easy means to file complaints. On December 23, 1998, the Commission released a Second Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (FCC 98–334) adopting new rules to prevent the unauthorized change by telecommunications carriers of consumers’ selections of telecommunications service providers (slamming), and revealing future initiatives to protect consumers from telephone related fraud. One of those initiatives was the development of the electronic slamming complaint form: FCC Form 501. FCC Form 501, Slamming Complaint Form, is devised to ensure complete and efficient submission of necessary information to process slamming complaints. FCC Form 501 remains available to consumers electronically and in hard copy. The Commission will use this information to provide redress to consumers and to act against companies engaged in this illegal practice. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H.

of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality,

technologically infeasible or too costly. Information is used by FCC 
staff to determine whether to grant or dismiss the request.

    Title: Section 79.2, Accessibility of Programming Providing 
Emergency Information.
    Form Number: Not applicable.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

party disclosure requirement.
    Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
    Total Annual Burden: 300 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: $22,500.

to the extent that individuals' and households' information is 
contained in the OSCAR database, which is covered under the 
Commission's system of records notice (SORN), FCC/CIB-1, ``Informal 
Complaints and Inquiries.'' The Commission believes that it provides 
sufficient safeguards to protect the privacy of individuals who file

    Privacy Impact Assessment: Under development.
    Needs and Uses: 47 CFR 79.2 is designed to ensure that persons with 
hearing and visual disabilities have access to the critical details of 
emergency information. The Commission adopted the rules to assist 
persons with hearing disabilities on April 14, 2000, in the Second 
Report and Order in MM Docket No. 95-176. The Commission modified the 
rules to assist persons with visual disabilities on July 21, 2000, in 
the Report and Order in MM Docket No. 99-339. As the Commission noted 
in the previous PRA submission, the Commission adopted its rules for 
persons with different disabilities at different times. It previously 
provided for persons with hearing disabilities in OMB Control No. 3060-
0945; and for persons with visual disabilities in OMB Control No. 3060-
0967. Because both sets of rules make use of the same complaint 
procedures, which are what triggered the PRA submissions, the 
Commission consolidated these two information collections and 
discontinued OMB information collection No. 3060-0945. 47 CFR 79.2(c) 
requires that each complaint transmitted to the Commission include the 
following: the name of the video programming distributor at issue; the 
date and time of the omission of the emergency information; and the 
type of emergency. The Commission then notifies the video programming 
distributor, which must reply within 30 days.

    OMB Control Number: 3060-0968.
    Title: Slamming Complaint Form.
    Form Number: FCC Form 501.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Respondents: Individuals or households; Business or other for-
profit entities; Not-for-profit institutions.
    Number of Respondents: 3,600.
    Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement.
    Total Annual Burden: 900 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: None.
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an issue 
to the extent that individuals' and households' information is 
contained in the OSCAR database, which is covered under the 
Commission's system of records notice (SORN), FCC/CIB-1, ``Informal 
Complaints and Inquiries.'' The Commission believes that it provides 
sufficient safeguards to protect the privacy of individuals who file

the public via news release its plan to provide consumers with tools to 
better protect themselves from telephone related fraud, as well as
