Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 89 / Thursday, May 8, 2014 / Notices emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES amount of liquid hazardous materials being measured during load and unloading of bulk packagings is accurate. These meter provers consist of a gauge and several pipes that always contain small amounts of the liquid hazardous material in the pipes as residual material, and, therefore, must be inspected and maintained in accordance with the HMR to ensure they are in proper calibration and working order. These meter provers are not subject to the specification testing and inspection requirements in Part 178. However, these meter provers must be visually inspected annually and hydrostatic pressure tested every five years in order to ensure they are properly working as specified in § 173.5a of the HMR. Therefore, this information collection requires that: (1) Each meter prover must undergo and pass an external visual inspection annually to ensure that the meter provers used in the flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings are accurate and in conformance with the performance standards in the HMR. (2) Each meter prover must undergo and pass a hydrostatic pressure test at least every five years to ensure that the meter provers used in the flow of liquid hazardous materials into bulk packagings are accurate and in conformance with the performance standards in the HMR. (3) Each meter prover must successfully complete the test and inspection and must be marked in accordance with 173.5a. (4) Each owner must retain a record of the most recent visual inspection and pressure test until the meter prover is requalified. Affected Public: Owners of meter provers used to measure liquid hazardous materials flow into bulk packagings such as cargo tanks and portable tanks. Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Number of Respondents: 50. Total Annual Responses: 250. Total Annual Burden Hours: 175. Frequency of collection: On occasion. Title: Requirements for United Nations (UN) Cylinders. OMB Control Number: 2137–0621. Summary: This information collection and recordkeeping burden is the result of efforts to amend the HMR to adopt standards for the design, construction, maintenance, and use of cylinders and multiple-element gas containers (MEGCs) based on the standards contained in the United Nations (UN) Recommendations on the Transport of VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:18 May 07, 2014 Jkt 232001 Dangerous Goods. Aligning the HMR with the UN Recommendations promotes flexibility, permits the use of technological advances for the manufacture of the pressure receptacles, provides for a broader selection of pressure receptacles, reduces the need for special permits, and facilitates international commerce in the transportation of compressed gases. Information collection requirements address domestic and international manufacturers of cylinders that request approval by the approval agency for cylinder design types. The approval process for each cylinder design type includes review, filing, and recordkeeping of the approval application. The approval agency is required to maintain a set of the approved drawings and calculations for each design it reviews and a copy of each initial design type approval certificate approved by the Associate Administrator for not less than 20 years. Affected Public: Fillers, owners, users, and retesters of UN cylinders. Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Number of Respondents: 50. Total Annual Responses: 150. Total Annual Burden Hours: 900. Frequency of collection: On occasion. Dated: May 5, 2014. Charles E. Betts, Director, Standards and Rulemaking Division.
