Information Collection Request Title: U.S. Coast Guard Nonappropriated Fund Employment Application. OMB Control Number: 1625–0120. Summary: The USCG NonAppropriated Fund Employment Application form is used to collect applicant qualification information associated with vacancy announcements. The form allows individuals to apply for employment opportunities with the Coast Guard Non-appropriated Fund (NAF) workforce and fills the gap created by the cancellation of the optional Application for Federal Employment, form OF–612, OMB No. 3206–0219. Need: The U.S. Coast Guard rates applicants under the authority of Title 5 of U.S. Code, Sections 1104, 2103, 3301 and 3320. 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. Forms: CG–1227B, Non-Appropriated Fund Employment Application. Respondents: Public applying for positions with the USCG Nonappropriated fund workforce. Frequency: Per vacancy announcements. 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.

Information Collection Request Title: Unauthorized Entry into Cuban Territorial Waters. OMB Control Number: 1625–0106. Summary: The Coast Guard, pursuant to Presidential proclamation and order of the Secretary of Homeland Security, is requiring U.S. vessels, and vessels without nationality, less than 100 meters, located within the internal waters or the 12 nautical mile territorial sea of the United States, that thereafter enter Cuban territorial waters, to apply for and receive a Coast Guard permit. Need: The information is collected to regulate departure from U.S. territorial waters of U.S. vessels, and vessels without nationality and entry thereafter into Cuban territorial waters. The need to regulate this vessel traffic supports ongoing efforts to enforce the Cuban embargo, which is designed to bring about an end to the current government and a peaceful transition to democracy. Accordingly, only applicants that demonstrate prior U.S. government approval for exports to and transactions with Cuba will be issued a Coast Guard permit. The permit regulation requires that applicants hold United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and U.S. Department of Treasury the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) licenses that permit exports to and transactions with Cuba. The USCG permit process thus allows the agency to collect information from applicants about their ` status vis-a-vis BIS and OFAC licenses and monitor compliance with BIS and OFAC regulations. These two agencies administer statutes and regulations that proscribe exports to (BIS) and transactions with (OFAC) Cuba. Accordingly, in order to assist BIS and OFAC in the enforcement of these license requirements, as directed by the President and the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Coast Guard is requiring certain U.S. vessels, and vessels without nationality, to demonstrate that they hold these licenses before they depart for Cuban waters. Forms: CG–3300, U.S. Coast Guard Application for Permit to Enter Cuban Territorial Seas. Respondents: Owners and operators of vessels. Dated: October 16, 2017. James D.

Information Collection Request

    Title: Unauthorized Entry into Cuban Territorial Waters.
    OMB Control Number: 1625-0106.
    Summary: The Coast Guard, pursuant to Presidential proclamation and 
order of the Secretary of Homeland Security, is requiring U.S. vessels, 
and vessels without nationality, less than 100 meters, located within 
the internal waters or the 12 nautical mile territorial sea of the 
United States, that thereafter enter Cuban territorial waters, to apply 
for and receive a Coast Guard permit.
    Need: The information is collected to regulate departure from U.S. 
territorial waters of U.S. vessels, and vessels without nationality and 
entry thereafter into Cuban territorial waters. The need to regulate 
this vessel traffic supports ongoing efforts to enforce the Cuban 
embargo, which is designed to bring about an end to the current 
government and a peaceful transition to democracy. Accordingly, only 
applicants that demonstrate prior U.S. government approval for exports 
to and transactions with Cuba will be issued a Coast Guard permit.
    The permit regulation requires that applicants hold United States 
Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and U.S. 
Department of Treasury the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) 
licenses that permit exports to and transactions with Cuba. The USCG 
permit process thus allows the agency to collect information from 
applicants about their status vis-[agrave]-vis BIS and OFAC licenses 
and monitor compliance with BIS and OFAC regulations. These two 
agencies administer statutes and regulations that proscribe exports to 
(BIS) and transactions with (OFAC) Cuba. Accordingly, in order to 
assist BIS and OFAC in the enforcement of these license requirements, 
as directed by the President and the Secretary of Homeland Security, 
the Coast Guard is requiring certain U.S. vessels, and vessels without 
nationality, to demonstrate that they hold these licenses before they 
depart for Cuban waters.
    Forms: CG-3300, U.S. Coast Guard Application for Permit to Enter 
Cuban Territorial Seas.
    Respondents: Owners and operators of vessels.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden has increased from 01 
hours to 351 hours a year due to the increase in applicants after the 
normalization of relations with the Cuban government.
