An OMB Notice of Action on each ICR will become available via a hyperlink in the OMB Control Number: 1625–0082. Previous Request for Comments This request provides a 30-day comment period required by OIRA. The Coast Guard published the 60-day notice (82 FR 34960, July 27, 2017) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). We received two comments from a commenter to the 60-day Notice. The first comment was about the navigation charts and publications requirements for small towing vessels that operate on inland waters. The commenter stated that the requirements for these vessels should not be the same as the requirements for vessels on other voyages. We agree. 33 CFR 164.72 prescribes fewer publication carriage requirements for vessels engaged in towing exclusively on Western Rivers than for those that operate elsewhere (towing or otherwise). Furthermore, the Coast Guard has allowed electronic carriage of some publications further reducing burden (see Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular 01–16). The second comment was about the Muster List and Emergency Instructions requirements. The commenter stated that we should take into account various levels of risk, and not apply the rules to all towing vessels. Again, we agree. The Muster List and Emergency Instructions requirements in 33 CFR 199.80 do not apply to towing vessels inspected under 46 CFR Subchapter M. These requirements apply to towing vessels inspected under 46 CFR Subchapter I on international voyages. The comments result in no changes to the Collection. Information Collection Request Title: Navigation Safety Information and Emergency Instructions for Certain Towing Vessels. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 OMB Control Number: 1625–0082. Summary: Navigation safety regulations in 33 CFR part 164 help assure that the mariner piloting a towing vessel has adequate equipment, charts, maps, and other publications. For inspected towing vessels, under 46 CFR 199.80 a muster list and emergency instructions provide effective plans and references for crew to follow in an emergency situation. Need: The purpose of the regulations is to improve the safety of towing vessels and the crews that operate them. Forms: None. Respondents: Owners, operators and masters of vessels. Frequency: On occasion. Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden has increased from 345,620 hours to 369,980 hours a year due to an increase in the estimated annual number of respondents.

Summary: The USCG NonAppropriated Fund Employment Application form is used to collect applicant qualification information associated with vacancy announcements.

The Optional Application for Federal Employment, Form OF–612, was cancelled and the information is now collected in USA Jobs. The NAF personnel system does not utilize USA Jobs because of the high cost and high turnover rate and thus relied heavily on form OF–612 for applicants.

Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden has decreased from 8,400 hours PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48837 to 3,837 hours a year due to a decrease in the estimated annual number of respondents.
