Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0040. Form(s): Aviation Security Known Shipper Verification Form, Aircraft Operator or Air Carrier Reporting Template, and Security Threat Assessment Application. Affected Public: This ICR involves regulated entities including aircraft operators, foreign air carriers, and indirect air carriers operating under a TSA-approved security program. Abstract: TSA uses the information collected to comply with the Aviation VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Mar 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) and provisions enacted as part of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–53, 121 Stat. 266, Aug. 3, 2007) for the security of aircraft operators, foreign air carriers and indirect air carriers operating under a TSA-approved security program. See ATSA sec. 110 as codified at 49 U.S.C. 44901(a) and (f). TSA is seeking a revision of the collection of information. Currently, this information collection requires aircraft operators, foreign air carriers, and indirect air carriers (IACs) to collect certain information as part of the implementation of a standard security program, to submit modifications to the standard security program to TSA for approval, and update such programs as necessary. As part of these security programs, the regulated entities must also collect personal information and submit such information to TSA so that TSA may conduct STAs on individuals with unescorted access to cargo. Further, the collection of information requires both companies and individuals whom aircraft operators, foreign air carriers, and IACs have qualified to ship cargo on passenger aircraft, also referred to as ‘‘known shippers,’’ to submit information to TSA. This information is collected electronically through the KSMS. In addition, the information collection requires that regulated entities enter into IACMS the information required from applicants requesting to be approved as IACs and the information required for their IAC annual renewal in accordance with 49 CFR 1548.7. Regulated entities must also maintain records, including records pertaining to security programs, training, and compliance to demonstrate adherence with the regulatory requirements. TSA is revising the collection to include information from select aircraft operators and foreign air carriers operating under certain amendments to their security programs. These entities must provide to TSA detailed screening volumes and the methodology utilized to arrive at these volumes, as well as demonstrating progress toward full compliance with the cargo security measures specified in such amendments.
