SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The Information Collection 
Requirement (ICR) documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. 
Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following 
information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for

[[Page 60311]]

the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    TSA is seeking to renew its OMB control number, 1652-0003, Aircraft 
Operator Security. TSA has implemented aircraft operator security 
standards at 49 CFR part 1544 which require each aircraft operator to 
which this part applies to adopt and implement a security program. As 
part of these security programs, affected aircraft operators are 
required to maintain and update, as necessary, records of compliance 
with the security program provisions outlined in 49 CFR part 1544. This 
regulation also requires affected aircraft operators to make their 
security programs and associated records available for inspection by 
TSA to ensure transportation security and regulatory compliance. Under 
this regulation, aircraft operators must ensure that flight crew 
members and employees with unescorted access authority or who perform 
screening functions (1) submit to a criminal history records check 
(CHRC); (2) conduct the CHRC; and (3) require the individual to provide 
identifying information, including fingerprints. The collection 
requirements associated with aircraft operator security programs remain 
critical in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 
2001. The current estimated annual reporting burden for approximately 
66 respondent air carriers is 34,320 hours.
