SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This is a request to renew or extend the expiration date of this currently approved information collection. In accordance with the Executive Order 12862, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory agency of the Department of Commerce, proposes to conduct a number of data collection efforts—both quantitative and qualitative. The data collections will be designed to determine requirements and evaluate the usability and utility of NIST research for measurement and standardization work. These data collections efforts may include, but may not be limited to electronic methodologies, empirical studies, video and audio collections, interviews, and questionnaires. For example, data collection efforts may include the password generation study and the user perceptions of online privacy and security study. NIST will limit its inquiries to data collections that solicit strictly voluntary opinions or responses and will not collect information that is required or regulated. The results of the data collected will be used to guide NIST research. Steps will be taken to ensure anonymity of respondents in each activity covered under this request. II. Method of Collection NIST will collect this information by electronic means when possible, as well as by mail, fax, telephone and personto-person interviews. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0693–0043.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for an extension of a currently approved 
information collection. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has 
issued regulations under authority of the Western and Central Pacific 
Fisheries Convention Implementation Act (WCPFCIA; 16 U.S.C. 6901 et 
seq.) to carry out the obligations of the United States under the 
Convention on the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish 
Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (Convention), including 
implementing the decisions of the Commission for the Conservation and 
Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central 
Pacific Ocean (Commission). The regulations include a requirement for 
the owners and operators of U.S. vessels that fish for highly migratory 
species on the high seas in the Convention Area to carry and operate 
near real-time satellite-based position-fixing transmitters (``VMS 
units'') at all times except when the vessel is in port. As part of 
this requirement, vessel owners and operators must transmit: (1) ``on/
off reports'' to NMFS whenever the VMS unit is turned off while the 
vessel is in port, (2) ``activation reports'' to NMFS prior to the 
first use of a VMS unit, and (3) automatic ``position reports'' from 
the VMS unit to NOAA and the Commission as part of a vessel monitoring 
system (VMS) operated by the Commission (50 CFR 300.45). Under this 
information collection, it is expected that vessel owners and operators 
would also need to purchase, install, and occasionally maintain the VMS 
units.
    The information collected from the vessel position reports is used 
by NOAA and the Commission to help ensure compliance with domestic laws 
and the Commission's conservation and management measures, and are 
necessary in order to the United Stated to satisfy its obligations 
under the Convention.

II. Method of Collection

    Respondents may submit on/off reports by facsimile or email, and 
they may submit activation reports by mail, facsimile or email. 
Position reports are transmitted electronically and automatically from 
the VMS unit.

individuals or households.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 78.
    Estimated Time per Response: VMS unit purchase and installation, 1 
hr; activation reports, 5 min; on/off reports, 5 min; VMS unit 
maintenance, 1 hr.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 192 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $78,000 in capital costs and
