FRA uses this information to ensure that the bulk package is properly secured using an adequate restraint system during transportation. Also an FRA approval is required for the movement of any tank car that does not conform to the applicable requirements in the HMR. These latter movements are currently being reported under the information collection for exemption applications. (4) Manufacturer Reports and Certificate of Construction: These documents are prepared by tank car manufacturers and used by owners, users and FRA personnel to verify that rail tank cars conform to the applicable specification. (5) Quality Assurance Program: Facilities that build, repair, and ensure the structural integrity of tank cars are required to develop and implement a quality assurance program. This information is used by the facility and DOT compliance personnel to ensure that each tank car is constructed or repaired in accordance with the applicable requirements. (6) Inspection Reports: A written report must be prepared and retained for each tank car that is inspected and tested in accordance with § 180.509 of the HMR. Rail carriers, users, and the FRA use this information to ensure that rail tank cars are properly maintained and in safe condition for transporting hazardous materials. Affected Public: Manufacturers, owners and rail carriers of tank cars. Recordkeeping: Number of Respondents: 266. Total Annual Responses: 16,782. Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,689. Frequency of collection: Annually. Title: Inspection and Testing of Meter Provers. OMB Control Number: 2137–0620. Summary: This information collection and recordkeeping burden is the result of efforts to eliminate exemptions that are no longer needed and incorporate the use, inspection, and maintenance of mechanical displacement meter provers (meter provers) used to check the accurate flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings, such as portable tanks and cargo tank motor vehicles, under the HMR. These meter provers are used to ensure that the proper amount of liquid hazardous materials is being loaded and unloaded involving bulk packagings, such as cargo tanks and portable tanks. These meter provers consist of a gauge and several pipes that always contain small VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:27 Nov 29, 2007 Jkt 214001 amounts of the liquid hazardous material in the pipes as residual material, and, therefore, must be inspected and maintained in accordance with the HMR to ensure they are in proper calibration and working order. These meter provers are not subject to the specification testing and inspection requirements in part 178. However, these meter provers must be visually inspected annually and hydrostatic pressure tested every five years in order to ensure they are properly working as specified in § 173.5a of the FHMR. Therefore, this information collection requires that: (1) Each meter prover must undergo and pass an external visual inspection annually to ensure that the meter provers used in the flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings are accurate and in conformance with the performance standards in the HMR. (2) Each meter prover must undergo and pass a hydrostatic pressure test at least every five years to ensure that the meter provers used in the flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings are accurate and in conformance with the performance standards in the HMR. (3) Each meter prover must successfully complete the test and inspection and must be marked in accordance with § 180.415(b) and in accordance with § 173.5a. (4) Each owner must retain a record of the most recent visual inspection and pressure test until the meter prover is requalified. Affected Public: Owners of meter provers used to measure liquid hazardous materials flow into bulk packagings such as cargo tanks and portable tanks. Recordkeeping: Number of Respondents: 50. Total Annual Responses: 250. Total Annual Burden Hours: 175. Frequency of collection: On occasion. Title: Requirements for United Nations (UN) Cylinders. OMB Control Number: 2137–0621. Summary: This information collection and recordkeeping burden is the result of efforts to amend the HMR to adopt standards for the design, construction, maintenance and use of cylinders and multiple-element gas containers (MEGCs) based on the standards contained in the United Nations (UN) Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. Aligning the HMR with the UN Recommendations promotes flexibility, permits the use of technological advances for the manufacture of the pressure receptacles, PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provides for a broader selection of pressure receptacles, reduces the need for exemptions, and facilitates international commerce in the transportation of compressed gases. Information collection requirements address domestic and international manufacturers of cylinders that request approval by the approval agency for cylinder design types. The approval process for each cylinder design type includes review, filing, and recordkeeping of the approval application. The approval agency is required to maintain a set of the approved drawings and calculations for each design it reviews and a copy of each initial design type approval certificate approved by the Associate Administrator for not less than 20 years. Affected Public: Fillers, owners, users, and retesters of UN cylinders. Recordkeeping: Number of Respondents: 50. Total Annual Responses: 150. Total Annual Burden Hours: 900.
