Insurance carriers and self-insured employers use Form LS–207 to controvert claims under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) and extensions. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the Department has provided a list of possible reasons for controversion that may be selected with a check mark. LHWCA section 901(d) authorizes this collection. See 33 U.S.C. 914(d). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25717 approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.

New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval.
