OMB Control Number: 2126–0019. Type of Request: Revision of a currently-approved information collection. Respondents: Foreign motor carriers and commercial motor vehicle drivers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 615. Estimated Time per Response: 4 hours to complete Form OP–2. Expiration Date: August 31, 2008. Frequency of Response: Other (Once). Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,460 hours [615 responses × 4 hours to complete Form OP–2 = 2,460]. Background: Title 49 U.S.C. 13902(c) contains basic licensing procedures for registering foreign motor carriers to operate across the Mexico-U.S. border into the United States. Part 368 of title 49, CFR, contains the regulations that require Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to apply to FMCSA for a Certificate of Registration to provide interstate transportation in municipalities in the United States on the U.S.-Mexico international border or within the commercial zones of such municipalities as defined in 49 U.S.C. 13902(c)(4)(A). FMCSA carries out this registration program under authority delegated by the Secretary of Transportation. Foreign (Mexico-based) motor carriers use Form OP–2 to apply for a Certificate of Registration from the FMCSA. The form requests information on the foreign motor carrier’s name, address, U.S. DOT Number, form of business (e.g., corporation, sole proprietorship, partnership), locations where the applicant plans to operate, types of registration requested (e.g., for-hire motor carrier, motor private carrier), insurance, safety certifications, household goods arbitration certifications, and compliance certifications. Public Comments Invited: You may comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FMCSA to perform it’s functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FMCSA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.
