OMB Control Number: 3060–0761. Title: Section 79.1, Closed Captioning of Video Programming, CG Docket No. 05–231. Form No.: N/A. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities; Individuals or households; and Not-for-profit entities. Number of Respondents and Responses: 59,995 respondents; 512,831 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 0.25 (15 minutes) to 60 hours. Frequency of Response: Annual reporting requirements; Third party disclosure requirement; Recordkeeping requirement. Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The statutory authority for this obligation is found at section 713 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 613, and implemented at 47 CFR 79.1. Total Annual Burden: 702,562 hours. Annual Cost Burden: $35,638,596. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an issue to the extent that individuals and households provide personally identifiable information, which is covered under the FCC’s system of records notice (SORN), FCC/CGB–1, ‘‘Informal Complaints, Inquiries, and Requests for Dispute Assistance.’’ As required by the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Commission also published a SORN, FCC/CGB–1 ‘‘Informal Complaints, Inquiries, and Requests for Dispute Assistance’’ in the Federal Register on August 15, 2014, published at 79 FR 48152, which became effective on September 24, 2014. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: Yes. Needs and Uses: The Commission seeks to extend existing information collection requirements in its closed captioning rules (47 CFR 79.1), which require that, with some exceptions, all new video programming, and 75 percent of ’’pre-rule’’ programming, be closed captioned. The existing collections include petitions by video programming providers, producers, and owners for exemptions from the closed captioning rules, responses by commenters, and replies; complaints by viewers alleging violations of the closed captioning rules, responses by video programming distributors (VPDs) and video programmers, recordkeeping in support of complaint responses, and compliance ladder obligations in the event of a pattern or trend of violations; records of monitoring and maintenance activities; caption quality best practices PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36769 procedures; making video programming distributor contact information available to viewers in phone directories, on the Commission’s Web site and the Web sites of video programming distributors (if they have them), and in billing statements (to the extent video programming distributors issue them); and video programmers filing contact information and compliance certifications with the Commission. On February 19, 2016, the Commission adopted the Closed Captioning Quality Second Report and Order, published at 81 FR 57473, August 23, 2016, amending its rules to allocate the responsibilities of VPDs and video programmers with respect to the provision and quality of closed captioning. The Commission took the following actions, among others: (a) Required video programmers to file certifications with the Commission that (1) the video programmer (i) is in compliance with the rules requiring the inclusion of closed captions, and (ii) either is in compliance with the captioning quality standards or has adopted and is following related Best Practices; or (2) is exempt from the captioning obligation and specifies the exemption claimed. (b) Revised the procedures for receiving, serving, and addressing television closed captioning complaints in accordance with a burden-shifting compliance model. (c) Established a compliance ladder for the Commission’s television closed captioning quality requirements. (d) Required VPDs to use the Commission’s web form when providing contact information to the VPD registry. (e) Required video programmers to register their contact information with the Commission for the receipt and handling of written closed captioning complaints. Federal Communications Commission.

OMB Approval Number: 3072–0060 (Expires December 31, 2017). Abstract: Section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984, 46 U.S.C. 40701–40706, requires that the Commission monitor the practices of controlled carriers to ensure that they do not maintain rates or charges in their tariffs and service contracts that are below a level that is VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Aug 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 just and reasonable; nor establish, maintain or enforce unjust or unreasonable classifications, rules or regulations in those tariffs or service contracts which result or are likely to result in the carriage or handling of cargo at rates or charges that are below a just and reasonable level. 46 CFR part 565 establishes the method by which the Commission determines whether a particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier subject to section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984. When a government acquires a controlling interest in an ocean common carrier, or when a controlled carrier newly enters a United States trade, the Commission’s rules require that such a carrier notify the Commission of these events. Current Actions: There are no changes to this information collection, and it is being submitted for extension purposes only. Type of Review: Extension. Needs and Uses: The Commission uses these notifications in order to effectively discharge its statutory duty to determine whether a particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier and therefore subject to the requirements of section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984. Frequency: The submission of notifications from controlled carriers is not assigned to a specific time frame by the Commission; they are submitted as circumstances warrant. The Commission only requires notification when a majority portion of an ocean common carrier becomes owned or controlled by a government, or when a controlled carrier newly begins operation in any United States trade. Type of Respondents: Controlled carriers are ocean common carriers which are owned or controlled by a government. Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission cannot anticipate when a new controlled carrier may enter the United States trade or when ownership or control of a carrier will change so that notification is required. Over the past three years, the Commission has received, on average, one notification per year. Estimated Time per Response: The estimated time for each notification is 2 hours, and multiple responses may be filed each year. Total Annual Burden: For purposes of calculating total annual burden, the Commission assumes one response annually. The Commission thus estimates the total annual burden to be PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2 hours (1 response × 2 hours per response). Rachel E. Dickon, Assistant Secretary.

    Title: 46 CFR part 565--Controlled Carriers.
    OMB Approval Number: 3072-0060 (Expires December 31, 2017).
    Abstract: Section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984, 46 U.S.C. 40701-
40706, requires that the Commission monitor the practices of controlled 
carriers to ensure that they do not maintain rates or charges in their 
tariffs and service contracts that are below a level that is just and 
reasonable; nor establish, maintain or enforce unjust or unreasonable 
classifications, rules or regulations in those tariffs or service 
contracts which result or are likely to result in the carriage or 
handling of cargo at rates or charges that are below a just and 
reasonable level. 46 CFR part 565 establishes the method by which the 
Commission determines whether a particular ocean common carrier is a 
controlled carrier subject to section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984. 
When a government acquires a controlling interest in an ocean common 
carrier, or when a controlled carrier newly enters a United States 
trade, the Commission's rules require that such a carrier notify the 
Commission of these events.
    Current Actions: There are no changes to this information 
collection, and it is being submitted for extension purposes only.
    Type of Review: Extension.
    Needs and Uses: The Commission uses these notifications in order to 
effectively discharge its statutory duty to determine whether a 
particular ocean common carrier is a controlled carrier and therefore 
subject to the requirements of section 9 of the Shipping Act of 1984.
    Frequency: The submission of notifications from controlled carriers 
is not assigned to a specific time frame by the Commission; they are 
submitted as circumstances warrant. The Commission only requires 
notification when a majority portion of an ocean common carrier becomes 
owned or controlled by a government, or when a controlled carrier newly 
begins operation in any United States trade.
    Type of Respondents: Controlled carriers are ocean common carriers 
which are owned or controlled by a government.
    Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission cannot anticipate when 
a new controlled carrier may enter the United States trade or when 
ownership or control of a carrier will change so that notification is 
required. Over the past three years, the Commission has received, on 
average, one notification per year.
    Estimated Time per Response: The estimated time for each 
notification is 2 hours, and multiple responses may be filed each year.
    Total Annual Burden: For purposes of calculating total annual 
burden, the Commission assumes one response annually. The Commission 
thus estimates the total annual burden to be 2 hours (1 response x 2 
hours per response).
