SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR 254, Oil-Spill Response Requirements for Facilities Located Seaward of the Coast Line. OMB Control Number: 1010–0091. Abstract: The Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA), as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), requires that a spill-response plan be submitted for offshore facilities prior to February 18, 1993. The OPA specifies that after that date, an offshore facility may not handle, store, or transport oil unless a plan has been submitted. This authority and responsibility are among those delegated to the Minerals Management Service (MMS) by Executive Order 12777. Regulations at 30 CFR 254 establish requirements for spill-response plans for oil-handling Citation 30 CFR 254 and NTLs facilities seaward of the coast line, including associated pipelines. The MMS uses the information collected under 30 CFR 254 to determine compliance with OPA by owners/operators. Specifically, MMS needs the information to: • Determine effectiveness of the spillresponse capability of owners/operators. • Review plans prepared under the regulations of a State and submitted to MMS to satisfy the requirements to ensure that they meet minimum requirements of OPA. • Verify that personnel involved in oil-spill response are properly trained and familiar with the requirements of the spill-response plans and to witness spill-response exercises. • Assess the sufficiency and availability of contractor equipment and materials. • Verify that sufficient quantities of equipment are available and in working order. • Oversee spill-response efforts and maintain official records of pollution events. • Assess the efforts of owners/ operators to prevent oil spills or prevent substantial threats of such discharges. Reporting requirement 61361 No proprietary, confidential, or sensitive information is collected. However, we will protect any information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR parts 250, 251, and 252. Responses are mandatory. Frequency: On occasion, monthly, annually, biennially, and triennially. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Respondents comprise owners or operators of facilities located in both State and Federal waters seaward of the coast line and oil spill response companies. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this information collection is a total of 35,070 hours. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden.

Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *’’ Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To comply with the public consultation process, on May 1, 2009, we published a Federal Register notice (74 FR 20332) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In addition, 30 CFR 254.9 displays the OMB control number, specifies that the public may comment at anytime on the collection of information required in the 30 CFR 254 regulations, and provides the address to which they should send VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:15 Nov 23, 2009 Jkt 220001 comments.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: We have 
identified no paperwork non-hour cost burdens associated with the 
collection of information.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) 
provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated 
to respond.
    Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et 
seq.) requires each agency ``* * * to provide notice * * * and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information * * *'' Agencies 
must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to 
perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) 
evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, 
usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 
minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on May 1, 2009, we 
published a Federal Register notice (74 FR 20332) announcing that we 
would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the 
required 60-day comment period. In addition, 30 CFR 254.9 displays the 
OMB control number, specifies that the public may comment at anytime on 
the collection of information required in the 30 CFR 254 regulations, 
and provides the address to which they should send comments. We have 
received no comments in response to those efforts.
    If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send 
your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this 
notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the 
information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to 
ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by 
December 24, 2009.
    Public Comment Procedures: Before including your address, phone 
number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in 
your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--including 
your personal identifying information--may be made publicly available 
at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your 
personal identifying information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
