Overview of This Information (1) Type of Information Collection: Approval of an Existing Collection. (2) Title of the Forms: The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Point-of-Contact (POC) State Final Determination Electronic Submission. (3) Agency Form Number, if any, and the applicable component of the department sponsoring the collection: Form Number: 1110–0035. Sponsor: Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Justice (DOJ). (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Full Point-of-Contact (POC) States; Partial POC States; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)-qualified Alternate Permit States. Brief Abstract: This collection is requested of Full POC States; Partial POC States; and the ATF-qualified Alternate Permit States. Per Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 25.6(h), POC States are required to transmit electronic determination messages to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services Division’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Section of the status of a firearm background check in those PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 instances in which a transaction is ‘‘open’’ (transactions unresolved before the end of the operational day on which the transaction was initiated); ‘‘denied’’ transactions; transactions reported to the NICS as open and subsequently changed to proceed; and overturned denials. The POC States must send this response to the NICS immediately upon communicating their determination to the Federal Firearms Licensee or in those cases in which a response has not been communicated, no later than the end of the operational day in which the transaction was initiated. For those responses that are not received, the NICS will assume the transaction resulted in a ‘‘proceed.’’ (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are 21 POC States who are required to submit electronic notifications to the FBI CJIS Division’s NICS Section and 18 ATF-qualified Alternate Permit States voluntarily submit electronic notifications to the FBI CJIS Division’s NICS Section. Both POC States and ATF-qualified Permit States conduct an average of 5,859,797 transactions per year. It is estimated that 26 percent would be affected by this collection and would require electronic messages sent to the NICS. This translates to 1,523,547 transactions, which would be the total number of annual responses. The other 74 percent would not be reported in this collection. It is estimated it will require one minute (60 seconds) for each POC State and ATF-qualified Alternate Permit State to transmit the information per transaction to the NICS. Thus, it is estimated that collectively all respondents will spend 25,392 hours yearly submitting determinations to the NICS. If the number of transactions were distributed evenly among the POC States and ATFqualified Alternate Permit States, then 651 hours would be the estimated time for each of the 39 states to respond. Record-keeping time is part of the routine business process and is not part of this calculation. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The average yearly hour burden for submitting final determinations combined is: (5,859,797 total checks × 26 percent)/60 seconds = 25,392 hours.

Overview of This Information

    (1) Type of Information Collection: Approval of an Existing 
Collection.
    (2) Title of the Forms: The National Instant Criminal Background 
Check System (NICS) Point-of-Contact (POC) State Final Determination 
Electronic Submission.
    (3) Agency Form Number, if any, and the applicable component of the 
department sponsoring the collection:
    Form Number: 1110-0035.
    Sponsor: Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division of 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Justice (DOJ).
    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract:
    Primary: Full Point-of-Contact (POC) States; Partial POC States; 
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)-qualified 
Alternate Permit States.
    Brief Abstract: This collection is requested of Full POC States; 
Partial POC States; and the ATF-qualified Alternate Permit States. Per 
Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 25.6(h), POC States are 
required to transmit electronic determination messages to the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services 
Division's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) 
Section of the status of a firearm background check in those instances 
in which a transaction is ``open'' (transactions unresolved before the 
end of the operational day on which the transaction was initiated); 
``denied'' transactions; transactions reported to the NICS as open and 
subsequently changed to proceed; and overturned denials. The POC States 
must send this response to the NICS immediately upon communicating 
their determination to the Federal Firearms Licensee or in those cases 
in which a response has not been communicated, no later than the end of 
the operational day in which the transaction was initiated. For those 
responses that are not received, the NICS will assume the transaction 
resulted in a ``proceed.''
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are 21 
POC States who are required to submit electronic notifications to the 
FBI CJIS Division's NICS Section and 18 ATF-qualified Alternate Permit 
States voluntarily submit electronic notifications to the FBI CJIS 
Division's NICS Section. Both POC States and ATF-qualified Permit 
States conduct an average of 5,859,797 transactions per year. It is 
estimated that 26 percent would be affected by this collection and 
would require electronic messages sent to the NICS. This translates to 
1,523,547 transactions, which would be the total number of annual 
responses. The other 74 percent would not be reported in this 
collection. It is estimated it will require one minute (60 seconds) for 
each POC State and ATF-qualified Alternate Permit State to transmit the 
information per transaction to the NICS. Thus, it is estimated that 
collectively all respondents will spend 25,392 hours yearly submitting 
determinations to the NICS. If the number of transactions were 
distributed evenly among the POC States and ATF-qualified Alternate 
Permit States, then 651 hours would be the estimated time for each of 
the 39 states to respond. Record-keeping time is part of the routine 
business process and is not part of this calculation.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection:
    The average yearly hour burden for submitting final determinations 
combined is: (5,859,797 total checks x 26 percent)/60 seconds = 25,392 
hours.
