Title: FAA Entry Point Filing Form— International Registry. Form Numbers: AC Form 8050–135. Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: This information collection supports Department of Transportation strategic goals regarding safety and security. The information collected is necessary to obtain an authorization code for transmission of information to the International Registry. The Convention on International Interest in Mobile Equipment, as modified by the Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on Matters Specific to Aircraft Equipment (herein after the Cape Town Treaty or Treaty), provides for the creation and sustainment of the International Registry. The International Registry is an electronic registry system that works in tandem with the current system operated by the FAA Civil Aviation Registry (Registry) for the United States. Congress has designated the Registry as the exclusive United States Entry Point for transmissions to the International Registry. To transmit certain types of interests or prospective interests to the International Registry, interested parties must file a completed FAA Entry Point Filing Form—International Registry, AC Form 8050–135, with the Registry. Upon receipt of the completed form, the Registry, upon verifying the accuracy of the submitted data, issues the unique authorization code. Respondents: Aircraft owners desiring authorization for filing with the International Registry. The submission of the information in question is not an FAA requirement for aircraft registration. Its sole purpose is to create authorization for filing with the International Registry. Frequency: Information is collected on occasion, as desired by the aircraft owner. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: Based on FY ’17 approximately 15,000 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:39 May 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 filings, the estimated annual burden is 7,500 hours.
