SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Information Collection Request Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). In compliance with these requirements, this notice announces that the following information collection request has been forwarded to OMB. OMB Control Number: To be issued at time of approval. Title: Emergency Medical Services Sleep Health and Fatigue Education. Form Numbers: NHTSA Forms 1460, 1461, 1462, 1463, 1464, 1465, 1466, and 1467. Type of Review: New information collection. PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49979 Abstract: NHTSA proposes to collect information from Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel who operate ambulances on the roadway for a onetime voluntary study to evaluate the effectiveness of a fatigue mitigation intervention that delivers education and training. Up to 200 EMS agencies across the United States will be contacted and screened in order to recruit a total of 30 agencies to participate in the study. NHTSA anticipates contacting up to 100 EMS personnel per participating agency (3,000 total) to screen and recruit 1,500 eligible participants for the study. NHTSA expects 1,200 voluntary participants to complete the sign-up process, including providing demographic information and shift schedules, and to consent to participate in the 24-week study. Participants will complete a baseline survey that includes self-reported fatigue and sleepiness and will retake the survey halfway through the study and again at the end of the study. All participants will complete the ten ten-minute training modules during the study period. Once the study is underway, participants will be asked to respond to daily text messages about sleepiness and fatigue for eight weeks of the 24-week study. Finally, NHTSA will ask 30 of the 1,200 participants to provide additional information by keeping a daily sleep diary for eight weeks and by taking a brief vigilance task test to measure fatigue at the beginning and end of each shift over eight days. Respondents: NHTSA anticipates contacting up to 3,000 EMS personnel across 30 participating agencies to recruit up to 1,200 voluntary respondents. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The total estimated burden for EMS agency recruitment (17 hours), recruitment of EMS clinicians (250 hours), the consenting process (250 hours), initial data collection and training (2,900), follow-up data collection (6,600), and additional data collection for assessing measurement error (124) is 10,141 hours. II. Comment Response On July 14th, 2018, NHTSA published a notice in the Federal Register (NHTSA–2018–0060) with a 60-day public comment period to announce this proposed information collection. As of the closing date of September 17th, 2018, two comments were received in response to this notice. Both comments were positive and supportive of this information collection request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control No. 2106–0035. Title: Foreign Air Carrier Application for Statement of Authorization. Form No.: Form OST 4540. Type of Review: Reinstatement of a Previously Approved Information Collection. Respondents: Foreign Air Carriers. Number of Respondents: Approximately 100. Estimated Time per Response: 2.25 hours per application. Total Annual Burden: 1,000 hours. Abstract: Applicants use Form OST 4540 to request statements of authorization to conduct numerous types of operations authorized under Title 14, CFR part 212. The form requires basic information regarding the carrier(s) conducting the operation, the party filing the form, the operations being conducted, the number of third- PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and fourth-freedom flights conducted in the last twelve-month period, and certification of reciprocity from the carrier’s homeland government. DOT analysts will use the information collected to determine if applications for fifth-freedom operations meet the public interest requirements necessary to authorize such applications. Burden Statement: We estimate that the industry-wide total hour burden for this collection to be approximately 1,000 hours or approximately 2.25 hours per application. Conservatively, we estimate the compilation of background information will require 1.75 hours, and the completion and submission of OST Form 4540 will require thirty (30) minutes. Reporting the number of thirdand fourth-freedom operations conducted by an applicant carrier will require collection of flight data, and detailed analysis to determine which flights conducted by the carrier are third- and fourth-freedom. Applicants should be able to use data collected for the Department’s T–100 program to provide this information (under this program, carriers are required periodically to compile and report certain traffic data to the Department, as more fully described in the Docket referenced in footnote 1 below). The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) provide carriers with a computer program that allows them to compile and monitor, among other things, flight origin and destination data, to be used in making the carriers’ T–100 submissions.1 We estimated that carriers will require 1.25 hours per application 2 to compile and analyze the data necessary to disclose the number of third- and fourth-freedom flights conducted within the twelve-month period preceding the filing of an application. Foreign carriers will also have to provide evidence that their homeland government will afford reciprocity to U.S. carriers seeking authority for the similar fifth-, sixth- and seventhfreedom operations. Carriers may cite certifications submitted by carriers from the same homeland if that homeland 1 The rule-making associated with the T–100 program can be found on the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) at http:// www.regulations.gov, in Docket DOT–OST–1998– 4043. Information regarding burden hours is on file in the Office of Aviation Analysis (X–50). 2 The Office of Aviation Analysis (X–50) estimated that small-carriers would require 1 burden hour per report, and large carriers would require 3 burden hours per report to analyze and report T–100 program data. Considering that the data required in this information collection can be derived from data already collected, we have taken an average of the estimated time required, and conservatively shortened the time by 45 minutes because no new data entry will be required.
