Under this stewardship role, the Secretary was given certain regulatory authorities to ensure the most beneficial uses of these resources. One of the regulatory steps taken to carry out the conservation and management objectives is to collect information from users of the resource. As regional Fishery Management Councils develop specific Fishery Management Plans (FMP), the Secretary has promulgated rules for the issuance of permits to individuals and organizations participating in Federally controlled fisheries in order to: (1) Register fishermen, fishing vessels, fish dealers and processors, (2) List the characteristics of fishing vessels and/or dealer/processor operations, (3) Exercise influence over compliance (e.g. withhold issuance pending collection of unpaid penalties), (4) Provide a mailing list and email list for the dissemination of important information to the industry, (5) Register participants to be considered for limited entry, and (6) Provide a universe for data collection samples. Identification of the participants, their gear types, vessels, and expected activity levels is an effective tool in the enforcement of fishery regulations. Limited access fishing permits, where entry is reviewed during a one-time application period, place size, tonnage, and horsepower restrictions on the ability of a vessel owner to upgrade or replace their vessel. If a vessel owner wishes to upgrade any of the specifications of his/her vessel such as length overall, net tonnage, gross tonnage, horsepower, or vessel fish hold capacity, he/she must submit, in writing, a request for a vessel upgrade. A request, in writing, also must be made in order to replace one limited access permitted vessel with another as vessel size restrictions are limited to 10percent above the baseline length overall, gross, and net tonnage, 20percent above the baseline horsepower, and 10-percent above the vessel hold capacity measurement for limited access vessels with Tier 1 or 2 Atlantic mackerel permits. Vessels with particular permits are also required to use an electronic vessel monitoring system (VMS) to declare their intent to fish before starting a particular trip, change their intent to fish during a trip, and to report real-time catch and discard information. While vessels are also required to report catch information weekly or monthly depending on their permit through vessel trip reports (VTRs) (VTR collection approved in OMB Control No. 0648–0212), it is often necessary to have VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:16 Apr 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 daily catch reporting in order to have a real-time understanding of the operation of the fishery. Real time catch reporting is especially important for high volume fisheries, where large amounts of fish are landed in short periods of time, so that the fishery can be shut down when approaching the annual, regional, or seasonal quota. Vessels are also required to request, in writing, participation in any of the various exemption programs offered in the Northeast region. Exemption programs may allow a vessel to fish in an area that is limited to vessels of a particular size, using a certain gear type, or fishing for a particular species. Vessels are also required to request gillnet and lobster tags through the Northeast region permit office when using gillnet gear or lobster traps. Lastly, vessel owners that own multiple vessels, but would like to request communication from NMFS be consolidated into one mailing (and not separate mailings for each vessel), may request the single letter vessel owner option to improve efficiency of their business practice. This revision/extension removes several requirements from this collection, either because they are no longer valid, or because they have been moved to other information collections.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Business and Professional Classification Report survey (SQ-
CLASS) collects information on new businesses to obtain proper industry 
classification for use in economic surveys conducted by the U.S. Census 
Bureau. The survey, conducted quarterly, samples businesses with newly 
assigned Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) from the Internal 
Revenue Service (IRS). Businesses can only be selected once for the 
survey. The SQ-CLASS form collects data about a business in such areas 
as primary business activity, company structure, size, and business 
operations. This information is used to update the sampling frame for 
current business surveys, which ensures high quality economic 
estimates. Additionally, by ensuring proper industry classification,

[[Page 25060]]

this survey reduces respondent burden for the five-year Economic 
Census, as businesses will be mailed Economic Census forms specifically 
tailored to their industry.
    We plan a few changes to the form. Most of the changes to the 
questionnaire will be aesthetic. The questionnaire will be redeveloped 
in the Census Bureau's standard form design software. This will give it 
the look of the other Census Bureau's economic surveys and the Economic 
Census. Minimal changes will be made to the wording and organization of 
existing questions and instructions to ensure consistency across the 
economic surveys and/or the Economic Census.

II. Method of Collection

    Information is collected by Internet, mail, fax, and telephone 
follow-up.
