Background: The Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 (MCSIA) (Pub. L. 106–159, 113 Stat. 1748, Dec. 9, 1999) authorized the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) to regulate household goods carriers engaged in interstate operations for individual shippers. In earlier legislation, Congress abolished the former Interstate Commerce Commission and transferred the Commission’s jurisdiction over household goods transportation to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) (ICC Termination Act of 1995, Pub. L. 104–88, 109 Stat. 803, Dec. 29 1995). Prior to FMCSA’s establishment, the Secretary delegated this household goods jurisdiction to the Federal Highway Administration, FMCSA’s predecessor organization within DOT. The FMCSA has authority to regulate the overall commercial operations of the household goods industry under 49 U.S.C. 14104, ‘‘Household goods carrier operations.’’ Under § 14104(a)(1), paperwork required of household goods carrier must be minimized to the maximum extent feasible consistent with the protection of individual shippers. This ICR includes the information collection requirements contained in title 49 CFR part 375, ‘‘Transportation of Household Goods in Interstate Commerce; Consumer Protection Regulations.’’ The information collected encompasses that which is generated, maintained, retained, disclosed, and provided to, or for, the agency under 49 CFR part 375.

The FMCSA regulations that set forth Federal requirements for movers that provide interstate transportation of household goods are found in 49 CFR part 375, ‘‘Transportation of Household Goods; Consumer Protection Regulation.’’ On July 16, 2012, FMCSA published a Direct Final Rule titled, ‘‘Transportation of Household Goods in Interstate Commerce; Consumer Protection Regulations: Household Goods Motor Carrier Record Retention Requirements,’’ (77 FR 41699). The rule amended the regulations governing the period during which HHG motor carriers must retain documentation of an individual shipper’s waiver of receipt of printed copies of consumer protection materials. This change harmonized the retention period with other document retention requirements applicable to HHG motor carriers. FMCSA also amended the regulations to clarify that a HHG motor carrier is not required to retain waiver documentation from any individual shippers for whom the carrier does not actually provide services. Public Comments Invited: FMCSA requests that you comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for FMCSA to perform its functions, (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden, (3) ways for the FMCSA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information, and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.

    Background: The Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 
(MCSIA) (Pub. L. 106-159, 113 Stat. 1748, Dec. 9, 1999) authorized the 
Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) to regulate household goods 
carriers engaged in interstate operations for individual shippers. In 
earlier legislation, Congress abolished the former Interstate Commerce 
Commission and transferred the Commission's jurisdiction over household 
goods transportation to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) 
(ICC Termination Act of 1995, Pub. L. 104-88, 109 Stat. 803, Dec. 29 
1995). Prior to FMCSA's establishment, the Secretary delegated this 
household goods jurisdiction to the Federal Highway Administration, 
FMCSA's predecessor organization within DOT.
    The FMCSA has authority to regulate the overall commercial 
operations of the household goods industry under 49 U.S.C. 14104, 
``Household goods carrier operations.'' Under Sec.  14104(a)(1), 
paperwork required of household goods carrier must be minimized to the 
maximum extent feasible consistent with the protection of individual 
shippers. This ICR includes the information collection requirements 
contained in title 49 CFR part 375, ``Transportation of Household Goods 
in Interstate Commerce; Consumer Protection Regulations.'' The 
information collected encompasses that which is generated, maintained, 
retained, disclosed, and provided to, or for, the agency under 49 CFR 
part 375.
    Sections 4202 through 4216 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, 
Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (Pub. L. 109-
59, 119 Stat. 1144, Aug. 10, 2005) (SAFETEA-LU) amended various 
provisions of existing law regarding household goods transportation. It 
specifically addressed: definitions (section 4202); payment of rates 
(section 4203); registration requirements for household goods motor 
carriers (section 4204); carrier operations (section 4205); enforcement 
of regulations (section 4206); liability of carriers under receipts and 
bills of lading (section 4207); arbitration requirements (section 
4208); civil penalties for brokers and unauthorized transportation 
(section 4209); penalties for holding goods hostage (section 4210); 
consumer handbook (section 4211); release of broker information 
(section 4212); working group for Federal-State relations (section 
4213); consumer complaint information (section 4214); review of 
liability of carriers (section 4215); and application of State laws 
(section 4216). The FMCSA regulations that set forth Federal 
requirements for movers that provide interstate transportation of 
household goods are found in 49 CFR part 375, ``Transportation of 
Household Goods; Consumer Protection Regulation.''
    On July 16, 2012, FMCSA published a Direct Final Rule titled, 
``Transportation of Household Goods in Interstate Commerce; Consumer 
Protection Regulations: Household Goods Motor Carrier Record Retention 
Requirements,'' (77 FR 41699). The rule amended the regulations 
governing the period during which HHG motor carriers must retain 
documentation of an individual shipper's waiver of receipt of printed 
copies of consumer protection materials. This change harmonized the 
retention period with other document retention requirements applicable 
to HHG motor carriers. FMCSA also amended the regulations to clarify 
that a HHG motor carrier is not required to retain waiver documentation 
from any individual shippers for whom the carrier does not actually 
provide services.
    Public Comments Invited: FMCSA requests that you comment on any 
aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the 
proposed collection is necessary for FMCSA to perform its functions, 
(2) the accuracy of the estimated burden, (3) ways for the FMCSA to 
enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected 
information, and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized without 
reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will

of this information collection.
