The resulting estimated total burden is 160 hours (40 respondents x 4.0 hour per respondent = 160 hours) for follow-up discussions and associated information collection with shippers and carriers. Inspection Simulation Questions: 260 Respondents × 1.0 Hr. = 260 Hours PHMSA does not anticipate that answering the list of inspection simulation questions will impose a significant burden on inspectors. PHMSA anticipates no more than 260 inspection simulations will be conducted utilizing non-federal resources (encompassing all pilot tests, all participants, and each test region throughout the entirety of the test period), resulting in a total of 260 respondents. The 260 respondent estimate has been increased by 20 from the original 240 estimate posted in the 60-Day Notice based on the number of inspectors who commented to the 60Day Notice and indicated they wish to participate in the pilot tests. PHMSA estimates it will take each inspector approximately 60 minutes to answer the list of inspection simulation questions, based on the type of questions identified in the following table, and to submit a copy of the e-HM shipping paper to PHMSA.
