PGA Message Set data may be submitted only for certain entries filed at certain ports. This modified test is in furtherance of key CBP International Trade Data System (ITDS) initiatives as provided in the Security and Accountability For Every Port Act (SAFE) of 2006 to achieve the vision of ACE as the single window for the Government and trade community by automating and enhancing the interaction between international trade partners, CBP, and PGAs by facilitating electronic collection, processing, sharing, and review of trade data and documents required by Federal agencies during the cargo import and export process.

at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 
approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 
comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and

of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0046; Secure Flight Program, 49 CFR part 
1560. The Transportation Security Administration collects information 
from covered aircraft operators, including foreign air carriers, in 
order to perform risk-based analysis of passenger information under the 
Secure Flight Program. Under the Secure Flight Program, as part of 
risk-based analysis, the information collected is used for watch list 
matching, which includes matching against lists of Known Travelers, and 
to assess passenger risk, e.g., to identify passengers who present 
lower risk and may be eligible for expedited screening. The collection 
covers --
    (1) Secure Flight Passenger Data for passengers of covered domestic 
and international flights within, to, from, or over the continental 
United States. The collection also covers flights between two foreign 
locations when operated by a covered U.S. aircraft operator;
    (2) Secure Flight Passenger Data for passengers of charter 
operators and lessors of aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight of over 
12,500 pounds; and
    (3) Certain identifying information for non-traveling individuals 
that airport operators or airport operator points of contact (POCs) 
seek to authorize to enter a sterile area at a U.S. airport, for 
example, to patronize a restaurant, to escort a minor or a passenger 
with disabilities or for another approved purpose.
    (4) Computer-Assisted Passenger Prescreening Systems (CAPPS) risk 
assessments, which are used by aircraft operators in risk-based 
analysis of passenger information and other prescreening data that 
produces a passenger boarding pass. The assessments are generated by 
analyzing the underlying passenger and other prescreening data obtained 
by the aircraft operator when the passenger makes his or her 
reservation. Secure Flight receives only the assessment generated from 
the applicable data and NOT the underlying data. TSA obtains important 
security value from the risk assessment without receiving the 
underlying privacy and other information that are generated when 
individuals make their flight reservations;
    (5) Frequent Flier Code Words generated by aircraft operator to 
validate that a passenger is a Frequent Flier program member who may be 
eligible for expedited screening. TSA analyzes this information to 
determine the appropriate level of physical screening for all 
passengers;
    (6) Registration information critical to deployment of Secure 
Flight, such as contact information, data format or mechanism the 
covered aircraft operators will use to transmit Secure Flight Passenger 
Data.
    The current estimated annual reporting burden is 678,245 hours.
