Type of Review: Renewal of collection. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Third party conformity assessment bodies seeking acceptance of accreditation or continuing accreditation. Estimated Burden: • New Applications from Third Party Conformity Assessment Bodies. Æ We estimate approximately 40 new applications from independent third party conformity assessment bodies will be submitted per year, taking an estimated 75 minutes to complete the asabaliauskas on DSK9F6TC42PROD with NOTICES2 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:38 Feb 11, 2016 Jkt 238001 initial application materials, with an estimated burden of 50 hours per year. Æ We estimate approximately 3 firewalled third party conformity assessment bodies will apply per year, taking an estimated 8.4 hours to complete the initial application materials, with an estimated burden of 25.2 hours per year. Æ We estimate approximately 4 governmental third party conformity assessment bodies will apply per year, taking an estimated 3 hours to complete the initial application materials, with an estimated burden of 12 hours per year. • Third party conformity assessment bodies updating information. Æ We estimate that approximately 5 third party conformity assessment bodies will take 15 minutes to update information for only those elements of information that need updating, with an estimated burden of 1.35 hours per year. • Third party conformity assessment bodies that subcontracts out tests. Æ We estimate that approximately 27 third party conformity assessment bodies will take 7 minutes to comply with the subcontracting recordkeeping requirement for an estimated 68,769 subcontract test, with an estimated of approximately 8,023 hours per year. • Third party conformity assessment bodies that voluntarily withdraw. Æ We estimate approximately 8 third party conformity assessment bodies will withdraw yearly, taking an estimated 30 minutes to create and submit the required documentation, with an estimated burden of 4 hours per year. • Third party conformity assessment bodies that are audited. Æ We estimate that approximately 228 independent third party conformity assessment bodies each year will be audited, taking approximately 4 minutes to resubmit their Form 223 and accreditation certificate, with an estimated burden of 15.2 hours per year. Æ We estimate that approximately 18 firewalled third party conformity assessment bodies will spend 226 minutes collecting and preparing the documentation to submit for an audit, with estimated burden of about 68 hours per year. Æ We estimate approximately 25 governmental third party conformity assessment bodies will spend 1 hour collecting and preparing the documentation to submit for an audit, with estimated burden of 25 hours per year. • Total Annual Burden. Adding all of the annual estimated burden hours results in a total of 8,224 hours for third party conformity assessment bodies per year. At $38.78 per hour, the total cost of the PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recordkeeping associated with the Requirements Pertaining to Third Party Conformity Assessment Bodies is approximately $318,927 (8,224 hours × $38.78 = $318,927). General Description of Collection: On March 12, 2013, the Commission issued a rule Pertaining to Third Party Conformity Assessment Bodies (78 FR 15836). The rule established the general requirements concerning third party conformity assessment bodies, such as the requirements and procedures for CPSC acceptance of the accreditation of a third party conformity assessment body, and prescribed adverse actions that may be imposed against CPSCaccepted third party conformity assessment bodies. The rule also amended the audit requirements for third party conformity assessment bodies and amends the Commission’s regulation on inspections.

Background

    CNCS supports programs that provide opportunities for individuals 
who want to become involved in national service. The service 
opportunities cover a wide range of activities over varying periods of 
time. Upon successfully completing an agreed-upon term of service in an 
approved AmeriCorps program, an AmeriCorps member receives an education 
award.
    The National Service Trust is the office within CNCS that 
administers the education award program. This involves tracking the 
service for all AmeriCorps members, ensuring that certain requirements 
of CNCS enabling legislation are met, and processing school and loan 
payments that the members authorize both manually and electronically 
through the MyAmeriCorps portal. With this form AmeriCorps members 
request Segal Education Award payments, schools and lenders certify 
their eligibility, and both parties certify certain legal requirements.

Current Action

    CNCS seeks to renew the current information collection request.
    After an AmeriCorps member completes a period of national service, 
the individual receives an education award that can be used to pay 
against qualified student loans or pay for current post-secondary 
educational expenses. The National Service Trust Voucher and Payment 
Request Form/National Service Trust Manual Payment Request Form is the 
document that a member uses to access his or her account in the 
National Service Trust.
    The information collection will otherwise be used in the same 
manner as the existing application. CNCS also seeks to continue using 
the current application until the revised application is approved by 
OMB. The current application is due to expire on 03/31/2016.
    Type of Review: Renewal.
