However, carriers should use the service request information to facilitate appropriate, timely assistance to their passengers. Respondents: Certificated U.S. and foreign air carriers operating to, from, and within the United States that operate at least one aircraft having a seating capacity of more than 60 passengers and own or control a primary website that markets air transportation to the general public in the U.S. Estimated Number of Respondents: 165 U.S. and foreign carriers, of which the Department expects all to have achieved compliance with the requirement in a prior year. The Department estimates that each year there will be 3 new respondent carriers. Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 0 hours per carrier compliant in a prior year, unless the carrier voluntarily elects to modify or improve its form, and 32 hours per carrier creating an online request form. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 96 hours. This estimate was calculated by multiplying the total number of labor hours per year that a carrier is estimated to spend to develop, implement, integrate, connect, and test the online request form (32) by the estimated number of new respondent carriers each year (3). Frequency: One-time requirement. 2. Website Accessibility Disclaimer Notice Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Pursuant to 14 CFR 382.43(e), covered carriers must provide a disclaimer notice for each link on their primary website that enables a user to access software or an external website that is not in the carrier’s control. The disclaimer notice must be activated the first time a user clicks the link and must notify the user that the application/website is not within the carrier’s control and may not follow the same accessibility policies as the primary website. The Department anticipates that each covered U.S. and foreign carrier will incur costs associated with identifying all links on their websites that may require a disclaimer such as developing and reviewing the design and language for the disclaimer notice, as well as developing, testing, and deploying the code to the appropriate web pages. The incremental labor hours associated with providing the required disclaimer may vary depending on the number of links on the website to which this requirement applies. The FRA estimated that it will take an average of 6 labor hours per carrier to identify the VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:59 Jul 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 links and then develop, test, and deploy the disclaimer notice on the website. We also estimate that it will take less than 30 minutes per year for a carrier to associate the notice with any new links to external websites or third-party software added to their websites. There are no recordkeeping or reporting requirements associated with this information collection. Respondents: Certificated U.S. and foreign air carriers operating to, from, and within the United States that operate at least one aircraft having a seating capacity of more than 60 passengers and own or control a primary website that markets air transportation to the general public in the U.S. Estimated Number of Respondents: 165 U.S. and foreign carriers, of which the Department expects all to have achieved compliance with the requirement in a prior year. The Department estimates that each year there will be 3 new respondent carriers. Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 6 hours for 3 new carrier respondents to create, test, and deploy the disclaimer. 30 minutes for 165 carriers compliant in prior years to associate the notice with new links and third-party software. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 100.5 hours. This estimate was calculated by multiplying the total number of labor hours per year that a carrier is estimated to spend to develop, test, and deploy the disclaimer notice (6) by the estimated number of new respondent carriers each year (3). To that total we added the product of the number of hours that we estimated carriers may spend associating the notice with new weblinks (.5 hours) and the number of carriers that are expected to have achieved compliance in a prior year (165). Frequency: One-time and recurrent requirements. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the Department’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the Department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.
