FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christina A. Walsh at the above address, or by telephone (571) 227–2062. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consistent with the requirements of Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, Reducing VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:47 Mar 08, 2018 Jkt 244001 Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, and E.O. 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, TSA is also requesting comments on the extent to which this request for information could be modified to reduce the burden on respondents. Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0029; Maryland Three Airports: Enhanced Security Procedures for Operations at Certain Airports in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area Flight Restricted Zone, 49 CFR part 1562. TSA’s regulations impose requirements and security procedures on airport operators of three Maryland airports located within the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area FRZ (Maryland Three Airports),1 and on individuals operating aircraft to or from these airports. The information collected is used to determine compliance with 49 CFR part 1562, subpart A. Part 1562, subpart A, allows an individual who is approved by TSA to operate an aircraft to or from one of the Maryland Three Airports or to serve as an airport security coordinator at one of these airports. In order to be approved, a pilot or airport security coordinator applicant is required to successfully complete a security threat assessment. As part of this threat assessment, the applicant must undergo a criminal history records check and a check of Government terrorist watch lists and other databases to determine whether the individual poses, or is suspected of posing, a threat to transportation or national security. An applicant will not receive TSA’s approval under this analysis if TSA determines or suspects them of being a threat to national or transportation security. Applicants can be fingerprinted at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport’s (DCA) badging office and any participating airport badging office or law enforcement office located nearby to the applicant’s residence or place of work. Applicants must present the following information to TSA, using TSA Form 418, as part of the application process: Full name; Social Security number; date of birth; address; phone numbers; current and valid airman certificate or current and valid student pilot certificate; current medical certificate; a list of the make, model, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) aircraft registration number for each aircraft the pilot intends to operate at Maryland Three Airports; one form of 1 The Maryland Three Airports are: College Park Airport (CGS), Potomac Airfield (VKX), and Washington Executive/Hyde Field (W32). PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10511 Government-issued picture ID; the certificate of completion of the FAA DC Special Flight Rules Area training; and fingerprints. Although not required by the rule, TSA asks applicants to voluntarily provide an email address and emergency contact phone number to facilitate immediate communication that might be necessary when operating in the FRZ or helpful during the application process. TSA is revising the collection by providing an option to submit the documents for the application by email. Applicants will no longer need to go in person to the FAA Flight Standards District Offices to submit the required documentation, but may submit the information to TSA electronically at mdthree@tsa.dhs.gov. Fingerprints, however, will continue to be collected in person at the various locations. TSA receives approximately 369 applications annually and estimates applicants spend approximately 7.75 hours to prepare and submit the information to TSA, which is a total annual burden of 2,859.75 hours.

Section 1580.103 requires freight railroad carriers, shippers, and receivers in a high threat urban area (HTUA) that handle certain categories and quantities of hazardous materials set forth in § 1580.100(b), known as ‘‘rail securitysensitive materials’’ (RSSM), to provide location and shipping information on rail cars under their physical custody and control to TSA upon request. The specified categories and quantities of RSSM cover explosive materials, materials poisonous by inhalation, and radioactive materials. Section 1580.107 requires a secure chain of physical custody for rail cars containing RSSM which, in turn, requires freight railroad carriers and certain hazardous materials shippers and receivers of RSSM to document the transfer of custody of certain rail cars in writing or electronically and to retain these records for a minimum of 60 calendar days. Specifically, § 1580.107 requires documentation of the secure exchange of custody of rail cars containing RSSM between: A rail hazardous materials shipper and a freight railroad carrier; two separate freight railroad carriers, when the transfer of custody occurs within a HTUA, or outside of an HTUA, but the rail car may subsequently enter an HTUA; and a freight railroad carrier and a rail hazardous materials receiver located within an HTUA. The documentation must uniquely identify that the rail car was attended during the transfer of custody, including car initial and number; identification of individuals who attended the transfer (names or uniquely identifying employee number); location of transfer; and date and time the transfer was completed. The total annual burden for this collection is approximately 112,764 hours, which is 67,320 hours higher than the current annual inventory. This change is primarily due to an increase in the number of responses of transfer of custody. PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: March 1, 2018. Christina A.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0051; Rail Transportation Security. TSA 
collects and uses information collected under 49 CFR part 1580 to 
enhance the security of the Nation's rail systems. Sections 1580.101 
and 1580.201 require freight railroad carriers, certain rail hazardous 
materials shipper and receiver facilities, passenger railroad carriers, 
and rail mass transit systems to designate and submit contact 
information for a RSC and at least one alternate RSC to TSA.
    Sections 1580.105 and 1580.203 require freight railroad carriers, 
certain rail hazardous materials shipper and receiver facilities, 
passenger railroad carriers, and rail mass transit systems to report to 
TSA significant security concerns, which include security incidents, 
suspicious activities, and threat information.
    Section 1580.103 requires freight railroad carriers, shippers, and 
receivers in a high threat urban area (HTUA) that handle certain 
categories and quantities of hazardous materials set forth in Sec.  
1580.100(b), known as ``rail security-sensitive materials'' (RSSM), to 
provide location and shipping information on rail cars under their 
physical custody and control to TSA upon request. The specified 
categories and quantities of RSSM cover explosive materials, materials 
poisonous by inhalation, and radioactive materials.
    Section 1580.107 requires a secure chain of physical custody for 
rail cars containing RSSM which, in turn, requires freight railroad 
carriers and certain hazardous materials shippers and receivers of RSSM 
to document the transfer of custody of certain rail cars in writing or 
electronically and to retain these records for a minimum of 60 calendar 
days. Specifically, Sec.  1580.107 requires documentation of the secure 
exchange of custody of rail cars containing RSSM between: A rail 
hazardous materials shipper and a freight railroad carrier; two 
separate freight railroad carriers, when the transfer of custody occurs 
within a HTUA, or outside of an HTUA, but the rail car may subsequently 
enter an HTUA; and a freight railroad carrier and a rail hazardous 
materials receiver located within an HTUA. The documentation must 
uniquely identify that the rail car was attended during the transfer of 
custody, including car initial and number; identification of 
individuals who attended the transfer (names or uniquely identifying 
employee number); location of transfer; and date and time the transfer 
was completed.
    The total annual burden for this collection is approximately 
112,764 hours, which is 67,320 hours higher than the current annual 
inventory. This change is primarily due to an increase in the number of 
responses of transfer of custody.
