Download as PDF daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 82 / Friday, April 27, 2018 / Notices agency. The FAA responded that as a federal agency we must be responsive to the public by taking action on the aircraft noise complaints we already receive, which in many cases means directing them to the appropriate airport. Others were concerned that the FAA would duplicate efforts by the Airport Sponsors who already have noise complaint systems to receive and respond to public noise complaints for their airport. The FAA is aware of the existing airport sponsor noise complaint systems and will provide their links on the regional noise websites for the public. In addition, FAA will coordinate with ACI–NA to assist us in our coordination efforts with the airport sponsors and with other relevant aviation stakeholders ACI–NA represents to minimize any duplication in efforts between the FAA and airport sponsors regarding aircraft noise complaints or inquiries. We did not receive any comments on the cost and hour burden of the Noise Portal. The purpose of the FAA Noise Portal is to allow the FAA to more efficiently and effectively respond to and address noise complaints or inquiries in a clear, consistent, and repeatable manner that is responsive to the public and applies the best use of FAA resources. Currently, there is no clear FAA process or point of entry for the public to submit noise complaints and inquiries. As a result, public noise complaints and inquiries are forwarded within the FAA until the appropriate person or organization responds. This creates a delay in FAA responses to the public. A public link to the FAA Noise Portal collection will be posted on each of the nine FAA regional websites and the FAA Headquarters Noise Ombudsman website for members of the public who want to submit an aircraft related noise complaint or inquiry to the FAA. The FAA Noise Portal includes required and optional fields for the public to complete. Once completed, the information is automatically sent to the FAA Regional Administrators Office or Noise Ombudsman who in turn assigns it to the appropriate FAA office to respond to the complaint or inquiry within a specified time frame. All incoming complaints and inquiries are automatically entered into an FAA database that can be tracked to ensure timely responses and queried for informational purposes. The websites will also identify and provide links to other entities responsible for addressing aircraft noise related issues (e.g., airports, military, helicopters) and will contain links to pertinent aircraft noise related policy, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Apr 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 environmental, or community involvement documents. In addition, the websites will contain a mailing address and phone number for those members of the public who wish to mail a postal letter or use a voice prompt and recording system option to complete the required fields included in the FAA Noise Portal. Respondents: Generally, any member of the public in the United States with a valid email address who believes the FAA is the appropriate entity to answer their aircraft noise complaint or inquiry. Frequency: Members of the public are not limited regarding the frequency with which they can submit a complaint or inquiry to the FAA. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Fifteen minutes to enter the complaint or inquiry into the FAA Noise Portal fields. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 11,250 hours.
