This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Attestation by Employers Using Alien Crewmembers for Longshore Activities in U.S. Ports information collection (Employers’ Attestation to Use Alien Crewmembers for Longshore Activities in U.S. Ports, Form ETA–9033, and Employers’ Attestation to Use Alien Crewmembers for Longshore Activities in the State of Alaska, Form ETA– 9033A). The ETA collects attestations from shipping companies seeking to use foreign crewmembers for longshore work when no U.S. workers are available. The information employers provide on these forms permits the DOL to meet federal responsibilities for program administration, management, and oversight. Immigration and Nationality Act section 258 authorizes this information collection. See 8 U.S.C. 1288. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.

OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2016. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on June 30, 2016 (81 FR 42730).
