Advisory Committee on the Medical Uses of Isotopes: Call for Nominations, 59658 [2016-20809]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 59658 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 168 / Tuesday, August 30, 2016 / Notices comment on whether it should defer application of the proposed requirements for theaters with auditoriums that show analog movies exclusively. If the Department decides to defer coverage of analog auditoriums, then the number of respondents may drop. DRS estimates that all of the approximately 1,876 respondents will comply with this requirement. Based on a review of current movie theater communications, it is estimated that an average of 10 minutes per respondent is needed to update existing notices of movie showings and times with this information. The Department acknowledges, however, that the amount of time it will take a respondent to comply with this requirement will likely vary because the amount of time necessary depends on the number of movies that the respondent is able to show at any given time. Frequency: The Department anticipates that movie theaters will likely update their existing listings of movie showings and times to include information concerning the availability of closed movie captioning and audio description on a regular basis. The Department’s research suggests that this information would only need to be updated whenever a new movie with these features is added to the schedule. This will vary as some movies stay on the schedule for longer periods of time than other movies, but the Department estimates that movie theaters will update their listings to include this information weekly. If, in the future, all movies are distributed with these features, specific notice on a movie-bymovie basis may no longer be necessary, and a movie theater may only need to advise the public that it shows movies with closed movie captioning and audio description. 6. An estimate of the total annual public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 16,259 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take an average of 10 minutes (1⁄6 of an hour) to update their existing listings of movie showings and times to include this information and that such updates will occur weekly for new movies that are added to the schedule. The total annual public burden hours for disclosing this information sum to 16,258.67 hours (1,876 respondents × 1⁄6 hours × 52 times a year = 16,258 and 2⁄3 hours). Assuming a movie theater spends 10 minutes each week to update its notices of moving showings and times to include this information, the average movie theater firm will spend 8.67 hours annually (1⁄6 hour × 52 times) VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:04 Aug 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 performing the necessary tasks to comply with this requirement.
