Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision of an Approved Information Collection: Request for Revocation of Authority Granted, 14792-14793 [2017-05631]

Download as PDF 14792 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 54 / Wednesday, March 22, 2017 / Notices support Daimler field tests designed to meet future vehicle safety and environmental requirements and to develop improved safety and emission technologies. According to Daimler, Mr. Zeilinger will typically drive for no more than 6 hours per day for 2 consecutive days, and 10 percent of the test driving will be on two-lane State highways, while 90 percent will be on interstate highways. The driving will consist of no more than 200 miles per day, for a total of 400 miles during a two-day period on a quarterly basis. He will in all cases be accompanied by a holder of a U.S. CDL who is familiar with the routes to be traveled. Daimler requests that the exemption cover the maximum allowable duration of 5 years. Daimler has explained in prior exemption requests that the German knowledge and skills tests and training program ensure that Daimler’s drivers operating under the exemption will achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety obtained by complying with the U.S. requirement for a CDL. IV. Method To Ensure an Equivalent or Greater Level of Safety FMCSA has previously determined that the process for obtaining a German commercial license is comparable to, or as effective as, the requirements of part 383, and adequately assesses the driver’s ability to operate CMVs in the U.S. Since 2012, FMCSA has granted Daimler drivers similar exemptions [May 25, 2012 (77 FR 31422); July 22, 2014 (79 FR 42626); March 27, 2015 (80 FR 16511); October 5, 2015 (80 FR 60220); December 7, 2015 (80 FR 76059); December 21, 2015 (80 FR 79410)].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) registers for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities under 49 U.S.C. 13902, surface freight forwarders under 49 U.S.C. 13903, and property brokers under 49 U.S.C. 13904. Each registration is effective from the date specified under 49 U.S.C. 13905(c). Subsection (d) of 49 U.S.C. 13905 also provides that on application of the registrant, the Secretary may amend or revoke a registration. Form OCE–46 allows these transportation entities to apply voluntarily for revocation of their registration (operating rights) or parts thereof. If the transportation entity fails to maintain evidence of the required level of insurance coverage on file with FMCSA, its registration (operating authority) will be revoked involuntarily. Although the effect of both types of revocation is the same, some carriers prefer to request voluntary revocation. For various business reasons, a carrier may request revocation of some part, but not all, of its operating authority. This information collection supports the DOT Strategic Goal of Safety by enabling motor carriers to voluntarily request revocation of operating authority, or some part of that authority, by identifying themselves to the FMCSA. A completed Form OCE–46 is filed with FMCSA by the registrant for the purpose of requesting that all, or a part, of its registration be revoked. The information contained on the form is used by the FMCSA in making a determination on the revocation request. The use of Form OCE–46 has proven to be an easy and effective means by which a registrant can request revocation of its registration. Form OCE–46 is filed by registrants on a voluntary, and for the most part, one-time basis. It calls for a very limited amount of information to identify the registrant and the scope of its request. Thus, the information collection itself E:\FR\FM\22MRN1.SGM 22MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 54 / Wednesday, March 22, 2017 / Notices has not been automated, although the information collected is ultimately entered into an automated data base. Eighty five percent (85%) of the Form OCE–46 filings are submitted electronically to FMCSA. This ICR is being revised due to an anticipated increase in the estimated number of annual filings from 3,000 to 3,501 and to account for the cost of notarizing and mailing Form OCE–46. Title: Request for Revocation of Authority Granted. OMB Control Number: 2126–0018. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: For-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities, surface freight forwarders, and property brokers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,501. Estimated Time per Response: 0.25 hours. Expiration Date: July 31, 2017. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 875 hours [3,501 responses × 0.25 hour = 875]. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the performance of FMCSA’s functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for 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 summarize or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. Issued under the authority of 49 CFR 1.87 on: March 16, 2017.

Telephone: 202–366–4325; email tom.yager@ dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 390.15(b), requires motor carriers to make certain specified records and information pertaining to CMV accidents available to an authorized representative or special agent of the FMCSA upon request or as part of an inquiry. Motor carriers are required to maintain an ‘‘accident register’’ consisting of information concerning all ‘‘accidents’’ involving their CMVs (49 CFR 390.15(b)(see ‘‘Definition: Accident’’ below). The following information must be recorded for each accident: Date, location, driver name, number of injuries, number of fatalities, and whether certain dangerous hazardous materials were released. In addition, the motor carrier must maintain copies of all accident reports required by insurers or governmental entities. Motor carriers must maintain this information for three years after the date of the accident. Section 390.15 does not require motor carriers to submit any information or records to FMCSA or any other party. This ICR supports the DOT strategic goal of safety. By requiring motor carriers to gather and record information concerning CMV accidents, FMCSA is strengthening its ability to assess the safety performance of motor carriers. This information is a valuable resource in Agency initiatives to prevent, and reduce the severity of, CMV crashes. The Agency increases its estimate from 26,700 to 36,157 burden hours. The regulation has not changed; the increase in burden hours does not E:\FR\FM\22MRN1.SGM 22MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) 
registers for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities under 49 
U.S.C. 13902, surface freight forwarders under 49 U.S.C. 13903, and 
property brokers under 49 U.S.C. 13904. Each registration is effective 
from the date specified under 49 U.S.C. 13905(c).
    Subsection (d) of 49 U.S.C. 13905 also provides that on application 
of the registrant, the Secretary may amend or revoke a registration. 
Form OCE-46 allows these transportation entities to apply voluntarily 
for revocation of their registration (operating rights) or parts 
thereof. If the transportation entity fails to maintain evidence of the 
required level of insurance coverage on file with FMCSA, its 
registration (operating authority) will be revoked involuntarily. 
Although the effect of both types of revocation is the same, some 
carriers prefer to request voluntary revocation. For various business 
reasons, a carrier may request revocation of some part, but not all, of 
its operating authority.
    This information collection supports the DOT Strategic Goal of 
Safety by enabling motor carriers to voluntarily request revocation of 
operating authority, or some part of that authority, by identifying 
themselves to the FMCSA.
    A completed Form OCE-46 is filed with FMCSA by the registrant for 
the purpose of requesting that all, or a part, of its registration be 
revoked. The information contained on the form is used by the FMCSA in 
making a determination on the revocation request. The use of Form OCE-
46 has proven to be an easy and effective means by which a registrant 
can request revocation of its registration.
    Form OCE-46 is filed by registrants on a voluntary, and for the 
most part, one-time basis. It calls for a very limited amount of 
information to identify the registrant and the scope of its request. 
Thus, the information collection itself

[[Page 14793]]

has not been automated, although the information collected is 
ultimately entered into an automated data base. Eighty five percent 
(85%) of the Form OCE-46 filings are submitted electronically to FMCSA. 
This ICR is being revised due to an anticipated increase in the 
estimated number of annual filings from 3,000 to 3,501 and to account 
for the cost of notarizing and mailing Form OCE-46.

    OMB Control Number: 2126-0018.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Respondents: For-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities, 
surface freight forwarders, and property brokers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,501.
    Estimated Time per Response: 0.25 hours.
    Expiration Date: July 31, 2017.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 875 hours [3,501 responses x 0.25 
hour = 875].
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the performance of FMCSA's functions; (2) 
the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for 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 summarize or include your 
comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information 
collection.
