SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to provide 60-days’ notice to the public to allow comment on information collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8–12. Specifically, FRA invites interested parties to comment on the following ICRs regarding: (1) Whether the information collection activities are necessary for FRA to properly execute its functions, including whether the activities will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA’s estimates of the burden of the information collection activities, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) ways for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways for FRA to minimize the burden of information collection activities on the public, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology See 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A); 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1). FRA believes that soliciting public comment will promote its efforts to reduce the administrative and E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1 58266 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 236 / Monday, December 11, 2017 / Notices paperwork burdens associated with the collection of information that Federal regulations mandate. In summary, FRA reasons that comments received will advance three objectives: (1) Reduce reporting burdens; (2) ensure that it organizes information collection requirements in a ‘‘user-friendly’’ format to improve the use of such information; and (3) accurately assess the resources expended to retrieve and produce information requested. See 44 U.S.C. 3501. The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB clearance as the PRA requires: Title: Accident/Incident Reporting and Recordkeeping. OMB Control Number: 2130–0500. Abstract: The collection of information is due to the railroad accident reporting regulations in 49 CFR part 225 that generally require railroads to submit monthly reports summarizing collisions, derailments, and certain other accidents/incidents involving damages above a periodically revised dollar threshold, as well as certain injuries to passengers, employees, and other persons on railroad property. Because the reporting requirements and the information needed regarding each category of accident/incident are unique, a different form is used for each category. FRA hereby informs the regulated community of railroads and the general public that it is revising the instructions for Form FRA F 6180.57, Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Accident/Incident Report, to capture information concerning post-accident toxicological testing for certain human-factor, highway-rail grade crossing accidents and incidents in the narrative block of this form. The newly revised 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 219.201(a), effective on June 12, 2017, requires postaccident toxicological testing of railroad employees when one or more of five specific requirements are met for certain human-factor categories of highway-rail grade crossing accidents and incidents. See 81 FR 37894 (June 10, 2016). FRA will begin the process to add a block to Form FRA F 6180.57 to accommodate this requirement. In the interim, if railroads perform drug and alcohol testing on any employee involved in a highway-rail grade crossing accident, FRA is requesting the railroad place the drug and alcohol coding information in Item No. 54, ‘‘Narrative Description,’’ of Form FRA F 6180.57. In accordance with the requirements of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520) and its implementing regulations (5 CFR 1320.5–12), FRA published the two required Federal Register notices for public comment and then transmitted to OMB in March 2017 its renewal submission for this information collection. This submission increased the agency estimate of the annual number of forms completed for Form FRA F 6180.57 by 160 forms from the previously approved submission to OMB (from 2,000 to 2,160 forms). FRA estimated two hours as the average burden time to complete Form FRA F 6180.57, including the time for the information placed in the narrative block of the form. OMB cleared this renewal submission on June 2, 2017, approving a total burden of 46,577 hours and 109,440 responses and extended the previous clearance for another three years. The new expiration date for this information collection is now June 30, 2020. FRA now seeks approval for this change to the Form F 6180.57 instructions while requesting no change to the number of burden hours and burden responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520, and its 
implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to 
provide 60-days' notice to the public to allow comment on information 
collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. 
See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8-12. Specifically, FRA invites 
interested parties to comment on the following ICRs regarding: (1) 
Whether the information collection activities are necessary for FRA to 
properly execute its functions, including whether the activities will 
have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA's estimates of the 
burden of the information collection activities, including the validity 
of the methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) 
ways for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information being collected; and (4) ways for FRA to minimize the 
burden of information collection activities on the public, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology See 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A); 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1).
    FRA believes that soliciting public comment will promote its 
efforts to reduce the administrative and

[[Page 58266]]

paperwork burdens associated with the collection of information that 
Federal regulations mandate. In summary, FRA reasons that comments 
received will advance three objectives: (1) Reduce reporting burdens; 
(2) ensure that it organizes information collection requirements in a 
``user-friendly'' format to improve the use of such information; and 
(3) accurately assess the resources expended to retrieve and produce 
information requested. See 44 U.S.C. 3501.
    The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB 
clearance as the PRA requires:
    Title: Accident/Incident Reporting and Recordkeeping.
    OMB Control Number: 2130-0500.
    Abstract: The collection of information is due to the railroad 
accident reporting regulations in 49 CFR part 225 that generally 
require railroads to submit monthly reports summarizing collisions, 
derailments, and certain other accidents/incidents involving damages 
above a periodically revised dollar threshold, as well as certain 
injuries to passengers, employees, and other persons on railroad 
property. Because the reporting requirements and the information needed 
regarding each category of accident/incident are unique, a different 
form is used for each category.
    FRA hereby informs the regulated community of railroads and the 
general public that it is revising the instructions for Form FRA F 
6180.57, Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Accident/Incident Report, to 
capture information concerning post-accident toxicological testing for 
certain human-factor, highway-rail grade crossing accidents and 
incidents in the narrative block of this form. The newly revised 49 
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 219.201(a), effective on June 12, 
2017, requires post-accident toxicological testing of railroad 
employees when one or more of five specific requirements are met for 
certain human-factor categories of highway-rail grade crossing 
accidents and incidents. See 81 FR 37894 (June 10, 2016).
    FRA will begin the process to add a block to Form FRA F 6180.57 to 
accommodate this requirement. In the interim, if railroads perform drug 
and alcohol testing on any employee involved in a highway-rail grade 
crossing accident, FRA is requesting the railroad place the drug and 
alcohol coding information in Item No. 54, ``Narrative Description,'' 
of Form FRA F 6180.57.
    In accordance with the requirements of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520) and its implementing regulations (5 CFR 1320.5-12), FRA published 
the two required Federal Register notices for public comment and then 
transmitted to OMB in March 2017 its renewal submission for this 
information collection. This submission increased the agency estimate 
of the annual number of forms completed for Form FRA F 6180.57 by 160 
forms from the previously approved submission to OMB (from 2,000 to 
2,160 forms). FRA estimated two hours as the average burden time to 
complete Form FRA F 6180.57, including the time for the information 
placed in the narrative block of the form. OMB cleared this renewal 
submission on June 2, 2017, approving a total burden of 46,577 hours 
and 109,440 responses and extended the previous clearance for another 
three years. The new expiration date for this information collection is 
now June 30, 2020. FRA now seeks approval for this change to the Form F 
6180.57 instructions while requesting no change to the number of burden 
hours and burden responses.
