This authorization was delegated to the Commandant of the Coast Guard under Department of Homeland Security. Delegation number 0170 and the marking of sunken vessels are set out in 33 CFR part 64.11. The information collected for the rule can be obtained from the owners of sunken vessels. The information collection requirements are contained in 33 CFR 66.01–5, and 67.35–5. Need: The information on these private aid applications (CG–2554 and CG–4143) provides the Coast Guard with vital information about private aids to navigation and is essential for safe marine navigation. These forms are required under 33 CFR 66 & 67. The information is processed to ensure the private aid is in compliance with current regulations. Additionally, these forms provide the Coast Guard with information which can be distributed to the public to advise of new, or changes to private aids to navigation. In addition, colleting the applicant’s contact information is important because it allows the Coast Guard to contact the applicant should there be a discrepancy or mishap involving the permitted private aid to navigation. Certain discrepancies create hazards to navigation and must be responded to and immediately corrected or repaired. Forms: CG–2554, Private Aids To Navigation Application and CG–4143, Application For Class I Private Aids To Navigation On Artificial Islands and Fixed Structures. Respondents: Owners of private aids to navigation. Frequency: On occasion.
