Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 73776 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 229 / Tuesday, November 29, 2011 / Notices collection requirements address registration of retesters and marking of cylinders by retesters with their identification number and retest date following the completion of required tests. Records showing the results of inspections and retests must be kept by the cylinder owner or designated agent until expiration of the retest period or until the cylinder is re-inspected or retested, whichever occurs first. These requirements are intended to ensure that retesters have the qualifications to perform tests and to identify to cylinder fillers and users that cylinders are qualified for continuing use. Information collection requirements in § 173.303 require that fillers of acetylene cylinders keep, for at least 30 days, a daily record of the representative pressure to which cylinders are filled. PHMSA did not receive any comments pertaining to this OMB control number in response to the Federal Register Notice published on September 14, 2011. Affected Public: Fillers, owners, users and retesters of reusable cylinders. Recordkeeping: Number of Respondents: 139,352. Total Annual Responses: 153,287. Total Annual Burden Hours: 171,642. Frequency of collection: On occasion. Title: Hazardous Materials Security Plans. OMB Control Number: 2137–0612. Summary: To assure public safety, shippers and carriers must take reasonable measures to plan and implement procedures to prevent unauthorized persons from taking control of, or attacking, hazardous materials shipments. Part 172 of the HMR requires persons who offer or transport certain hazardous materials to develop and implement written plans to enhance the security of hazardous materials shipments. The security plan requirement applies to shipments of: (1) A highway route-controlled quantity of a Class 7 (radioactive) material; (2) more than 25 kg (55 lbs) of a Division 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3 (explosive) material; (3) more than 1 L (1.06 qt) per package of a material poisonous by inhalation in hazard zone A; (4) a shipment of hazardous materials in a bulk packaging with a capacity equal to or greater than 13,248 L (3,500 gal) for liquids or gases, or greater than 13.24 cubic meters (468 cubic feet) for solids; (5) a shipment that requires placarding; and (6) select agents. Select agents are infectious substances identified by CDC as materials with the potential to have serious consequences for human health and safety if used illegitimately. A security plan will enable shippers and carriers to reduce the possibility that a VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:20 Nov 28, 2011 Jkt 226001 hazardous materials shipment will be used as a weapon of opportunity by a terrorist or criminal. This information collection was originally included in the Federal Register Notice published on September 14, 2011 [76 FR 56872] under Docket No. PHMSA–2011–0223 (Notice No. 11–9). However, since the September 14 publication, this information collection has been renewed in a separate OMB action. The expiration date has been extended until August 31, 2014. Affected Public: Shippers and carriers of hazardous materials in commerce. Recordkeeping: Number of Respondents: 54,999. Total Annual Responses: 44,880. Total Annual Burden Hours: 372,064. Frequency of collection: On occasion. Title: Subsidiary Hazard Class and Number/Type of Packagings. OMB Control Number: 2137–0613. Summary: The HMR require that shipping papers and emergency response information accompany each shipment of hazardous materials in commerce. In addition to the basic shipping description information, we also require the subsidiary hazard class or subsidiary division number(s) to be entered in parentheses following the primary hazard class or division number on shipping papers. This requirement was originally required only by transportation by vessel. However, the lack of such a requirement posed problems for motor carriers with regard to complying with segregation, separation, and placarding requirements, as well as posing a safety hazard. For example, in the event the motor vehicle becomes involved in an accident, when the hazardous materials being transported include a subsidiary hazard such as ‘‘dangerous when wet’’ or a subsidiary hazard requiring more stringent requirements than the primary hazard, there is no indication of the subsidiary hazards on the shipping papers and no indication of the subsidiary risks on placards. Under circumstances such as motor vehicles being loaded at a dock, labels are not enough to alert hazardous materials employees loading the vehicles, nor are they enough to alert emergency responders of the subsidiary risks contained on the vehicles. Therefore, we require the subsidiary hazard class or subsidiary division number(s) to be entered on the shipping paper, for purposes of enhancing safety and international harmonization. We also require the number and type of packagings to be indicated on the shipping paper. This requirement makes it mandatory for shippers to indicate on shipping papers the numbers and types PO 00000 Frm 00195 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of packages, such as drums, boxes, jerricans, etc., being used to transport hazardous materials by all modes of transportation. Shipping papers serve as a principal means of identifying hazardous materials during transportation emergencies. Firefighters, police, and other emergency response personnel are trained to obtain the DOT shipping papers and emergency response information when responding to hazardous materials transportation emergencies. The availability of accurate information concerning hazardous materials being transported significantly improves response efforts in these types of emergencies. The additional information would aid emergency responders by more clearly identifying the hazard. PHMSA did not receive any comments pertaining to this OMB control number in response to the Federal Register Notice published on September 14, 2011. Affected Public: Shippers and carriers of hazardous materials in commerce. Recordkeeping: Number of Respondents: 250,000. Total Annual Responses: 6,337,500. Total Annual Burden Hours: 17,604.
