Please reference ICR 1014– NEW in your comment and include your name and return address. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cheryl Blundon, Regulations Development Branch at (703) 787–1607 to request additional information about this ICR. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR part 282, Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf for Minerals other than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur. OMB Control Number: 1014–NEW. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1334 and 43 U.S.C. 1337(k)), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to implement regulations to grant leases of any mineral other than oil, gas, and sulphur to qualified parties. This regulation governs mining operations within the OCS and establishes a comprehensive leasing and regulatory program for such minerals. This regulation has been designed to: (a) Recognize the differences between the OCS activities associated with oil, gas, and sulphur discovery and development and those associated with the discovery and development of other minerals; (b) facilitate participation by States directly affected by OCS mining activities; (c) provide opportunities for consultation and coordination with other OCS users and uses; (d) balance development with environmental protection; (e) insure a fair return to the public; (f) preserve and maintain free enterprise competition; PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79705 and (g) encourage the development of new technology. The authorities and responsibilities described above are among those delegated to BSEE. This ICR addresses the regulations at 30 CFR part 282, Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf for Minerals Other than Oil, Gas, and Sulphur. It should be noted that there has been no activity in the OCS for minerals other than oil, gas and sulphur for many years and no information collected. However, because these are regulatory requirements, the potential exists for information to be collected; therefore, we are requesting this collection of information be approved by OMB. To accommodate the split of regulations from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to BSEE, BSEE is requesting OMB approval of the already approved burden hours that were previously under 1010–0081 to reflect BSEE’s new 1014 numbering system. Regulations at 30 CFR part 282 implement these statutory requirements. We use the information to determine if lessees are complying with the regulations that implement the mining operations program for minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur. Specifically, BSEE will use the information to: (a) To ensure that operations for the production of minerals other than oil, gas, and sulphur in the OCS are conducted in a manner that will result in orderly resource recovery, development, and the protection of the human, marine, and coastal environments; (b) to ensure that adequate measures will be taken during operations to prevent waste, conserve the natural resources of the OCS, and to protect the environment, human life, and correlative rights; (c) to determine if suspensions of activities are in the national interest, to facilitate proper development of a lease including reasonable time to develop a mine and construct its supporting facilities, or to allow for the construction or negotiation for use of transportation facilities; (d) to identify and evaluate the cause(s) of a hazard(s) generating a suspension, the potential damage from a hazard(s) and the measures available to mitigate the potential for damage; and (e) for technical evaluations that provide a basis for BSEE to make informed decisions to approve, disapprove, or require modification of the proposed activities. We will protect 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 30 CFR 282.5, 282.6, and 282.7.
