OMB Approval Number: 3072–0018 (Expires August 31, 2007). Abstract: Section 19 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (the ‘‘Act’’), 46 U.S.C. 40901–40904 (2006), as modified by Public Law 105–258 (The Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998) and section 424 of Pub. L. 105–383 (The Coast Guard Authorization Act of 1998), provides that no person in the United States may act as an ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) unless that person holds a license issued by the Commission. The Commission shall issue an OTI license to any person that the Commission determines to be qualified by experience and character to act as an OTI. Further, no person may act as an OTI unless that person furnishes a bond, proof of insurance or other surety in a form and amount determined by the Commission to ensure financial responsibility. The Commission has implemented the provisions of section 19 in regulations contained in 46 CFR 515, including financial responsibility forms FMC–48, FMC–67, FMC–68, and FMC–69, Optional Rider Forms FMC–48A and FMC–69A, and its related license application form, FMC–18. Current Actions: The Commission intends to revise Form FMC–18, Application for a License as an Ocean Transportation Intermediary. Specifically, language is being added to the Privacy Act Notice regarding voluntary disclosure of the applicant’s Social Security Number, and the System of Records citation is being updated. In the Paperwork Reduction Act Notice, the estimated time to prepare an Application is being revised from 1.5 hours per response to 2 hours. Throughout the Application, any reference to the Bureau of Consumer Complaints and Licensing (‘‘BCCL’’) has been changed to the Bureau of Certification and Licensing (‘‘BCL’’). Also, language has been added to Question 7(2) in Part B, and to Question 13(3) in Part D, allowing applicant or its qualifying individual to disclose whether he/she has ‘‘been declared bankrupt, been subject to a tax lien, or had legal judgment rendered for a debt.’’ In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, this would allow the agency, to the greatest extent practicable, to collect information about an applicant that may be used in making a decision with respect to the granting of an OTI license, directly from the applicant. Type of Review: Revision to an approved information collection. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:27 Aug 15, 2007 Jkt 211001 Needs and Uses: The Commission uses information obtained under this part and through Form FMC–18 to determine the qualifications of OTIs and their compliance with shipping statutes and regulations and to enable the Commission to discharge its duties under the Act by ensuring that OTIs maintain acceptable evidence of financial responsibility. If the collection of information were not conducted, there would be no basis upon which the Commission could determine if applicants are qualified for licensing. Frequency: This information is collected when applicants apply for a license or when existing licensees change certain information in their application forms. Type of Respondents: The respondents are persons desiring to obtain a license to act as an OTI. Under the Act, OTIs may be either an ocean freight forwarder, a non-vessel-operating common carrier, or both. Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential annual respondent universe of 4,765 entities. Estimated Time Per Response: The time per response for completing Application Form FMC–18 averages 2 hours. The time to complete a financial responsibility form averages 20 minutes. Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the total annual person-hour burden at 3,596 personhours. Bryant L. VanBrakle, Secretary. [FR Doc.

Both naturally occurring and intentional public health threats have the potential to cause catastrophic harm in a variety of ways, including economic repercussions and adverse effects on health, in some cases leading to loss of life. To meet these challenges, federal government encourages open communication with its stakeholders in the research and development communities and in industry. One method of improving this communication will be through the MedicalCountermeasures.gov Web site. The two key functions of the MedicalCountermeasures.gov Web site will be (1) to centrally manage stakeholder requests for meetings with government to present product information related to medical countermeasures against public health disasters, both manmade and naturally occurring; and (2) to provide our stakeholders in industry and academia with information on government sponsored opportunities and events related to medical countermeasures. In order to route product developers to the most appropriate personnel within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), HHS will collect some basic information about the company’s product through MedicalCountermeasures.gov.

and General Duties for Ocean Transportation Intermediaries and Related 
Forms.
    OMB Approval Number: 3072-0018 (Expires August 31, 2007).
    Abstract: Section 19 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (the ``Act''), 46 
U.S.C. 40901-40904 (2006), as modified by Public Law 105-258 (The Ocean 
Shipping Reform Act of 1998) and section 424 of Pub. L. 105-383 (The 
Coast Guard Authorization Act of 1998), provides that no person in the 
United States may act as an ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) 
unless that person holds a license issued by the Commission. The 
Commission shall issue an OTI license to any person that the Commission 
determines to be qualified by experience and character to act as an 
OTI. Further, no person may act as an OTI unless that person furnishes 
a bond, proof of insurance or other surety in a form and amount 
determined by the Commission to ensure financial responsibility. The 
Commission has implemented the provisions of section 19 in regulations 
contained in 46 CFR 515, including financial responsibility forms FMC-
48, FMC-67, FMC-68, and FMC-69, Optional Rider Forms FMC-48A and FMC-
69A, and its related license application form, FMC-18.
    Current Actions: The Commission intends to revise Form FMC-18, 
Application for a License as an Ocean Transportation Intermediary. 
Specifically, language is being added to the Privacy Act Notice 
regarding voluntary disclosure of the applicant's Social Security 
Number, and the System of Records citation is being updated. In the 
Paperwork Reduction Act Notice, the estimated time to prepare an 
Application is being revised from 1.5 hours per response to 2 hours. 
Throughout the Application, any reference to the Bureau of Consumer 
Complaints and Licensing (``BCCL'') has been changed to the Bureau of 
Certification and Licensing (``BCL''). Also, language has been added to 
Question 7(2) in Part B, and to Question 13(3) in Part D, allowing 
applicant or its qualifying individual to disclose whether he/she has 
``been declared bankrupt, been subject to a tax lien, or had legal 
judgment rendered for a debt.'' In accordance with the Privacy Act of 
1974, this would allow the agency, to the greatest extent practicable, 
to collect information about an applicant that may be used in making a 
decision with respect to the granting of an OTI license, directly from 
the applicant.
    Type of Review: Revision to an approved information collection.
    Needs and Uses: The Commission uses information obtained under this 
part and through Form FMC-18 to determine the qualifications of OTIs 
and their compliance with shipping statutes and regulations and to 
enable the Commission to discharge its duties under the Act by ensuring 
that OTIs maintain acceptable evidence of financial responsibility. If 
the collection of information were not conducted, there would be no 
basis upon which the Commission could determine if applicants are 
qualified for licensing.
    Frequency: This information is collected when applicants apply for 
a license or when existing licensees change certain information in 
their application forms.
    Type of Respondents: The respondents are persons desiring to obtain 
a license to act as an OTI. Under the Act, OTIs may be either an ocean 
freight forwarder, a non-vessel-operating common carrier, or both.
    Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential 
annual respondent universe of 4,765 entities.
    Estimated Time Per Response: The time per response for completing 
Application Form FMC-18 averages 2 hours. The time to complete a 
financial responsibility form averages 20 minutes.
    Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the total annual 
person-hour burden at 3,596 person-hours.
