Information Collection Request TITLE: Standard Numbering System for Undocumented Vessels. OMB CONTROL NUMBER: 1625– 0108. SUMMARY: The Standard Numbering System collects information on undocumented vessels and vessel owners operating on waters subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies use information from the system for enforcement of boating laws or theft and fraud investigations. Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, the need has increased for identification of undocumented vessels to meet port security and other missions to safeguard the homeland. NEED: Subsection 12301(a) of Title 46, United States Code, requires undocumented vessels equipped with propulsion machinery of any kind to be numbered in State where the vessel is principally operated. In 46 U.S.C. 12302(a), Congress authorized the Secretary to prescribe, by regulation, a Standard Numbering System (SNS). The Secretary shall approve a State numbering system if that system is consistent with the SNS. The Secretary has delegated his authority under 46 U.S.C. 12301 and 12302 to Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard. DHS Delegation No. 0170.1. The regulations requiring the numbering of undocumented vessels are in 33 CFR part 173, and regulations establishing the SNS for States to voluntarily carry out this function are contained in 33 CFR part 174. In States that do not have an approved system, the Federal Government (U.S. Coast Guard) must administer the vessel numbering system. Currently, all 56 States and Territories have approved numbering systems. The approximate number of undocumented vessels registered by the States in 2017 was nearly 12 million. The SNS collects information on undocumented vessels and vessel VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Oct 30, 2018 Jkt 247001 owners. States submit reports annually to the Coast Guard on the number, size, construction, etc., of vessels they have numbered. That information is used by the Coast Guard in (1) publication of an annual ‘‘Boating Statistics’’ report required by 46 U.S.C. 6102(b), and (2) for allocation of Federal funds to assist States in carrying out the Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) Program established by 46 U.S.C. chapter 131. On a daily basis or as warranted, Federal, State, and local law enforcement personnel use SNS information from the States’ numbering systems for enforcement of boating laws or theft and fraud investigations. In addition, when encountering a vessel suspected of illegal activity, information from the SNS increases officer safety by assisting boarding officers in determining how best to approach a vessel. Since, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, the need has increased for identification of undocumented vessels and their owners for port security and other missions to safeguard the homeland, although the statutory requirement for numbering of vessels dates back to 1918. FORMS: None. RESPONDENTS: Owners of all undocumented vessels propelled by machinery are required by Federal law to apply for a number from the issuing authority of the State in which the vessel is to be principally operated. In addition, States may require other vessels, such as sailboats or even canoes and kayaks, to be numbered. ‘‘Owners’’ may include individuals or households, non-profit organizations, and small businesses (e.g., liveries that offer recreational vessels for rental by the public) or other for-profit organizations. FREQUENCY: On occasion. HOUR BURDEN ESTIMATE: The estimated burden has decreased from 257,896 hours to 256,472 hours a year due to a decrease in the estimated annual number of respondents. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended. Dated: October 25, 2018. James D. Roppel, Acting Chief, U.S. Coast Guard, Office of Information Management.

For flight crewmembers, TSA also uses this information to check their FAA records to determine whether they have a record of violation of specified FAA regulations. As part of the threat assessment process, TSA shares the information with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the FAA. Aircraft operators must also maintain CHRC records of all employees and authorized representatives for whom a CHRC has been completed. These records must be made available to TSA upon request. Applicant Collection for the Armed Security Officer Program Under the Armed Security Officers Program, established by 49 CFR 1562.29, aircraft operators and FBOs participating in this program can nominate the individuals they would like to be qualified as ASOs by submitting an ASO nomination form to TSA. Once nominated, the ASOs are required to submit fingerprints and identifying information, personal history information, a photograph, and weapon information before an ASO application can be approved. TSA uses the applicants’ information to conduct a complete application vetting to include fingerprint-based CHRC and security threat assessment, including employment history verification check of all prior law enforcement positions. Upon successful completion of these checks and law enforcement employment history review, TSA makes the final determination of ASO applicant eligibility. All qualified applicants must then successfully complete a TSA-approved training course. TSA estimates a total of 76 respondents annually for DASSP applications, with an annual hour burden estimate of 76. TSA adjusted the 2016 ICR submission respondent numbers to reflect a burden based on aircraft operators only. In addition, TSA estimates 84 respondents annually for ASO nominations, with an annual hour burden of 98.

of information technology.
    Consistent with the requirements of Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, 
Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, and E.O. 13777, 
Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, TSA is also requesting comments 
on the extent to which this request for information could be modified 
to reduce the burden on respondents.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0035; Enhanced Security Procedures at 
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). Each person who wishes 
to operate an aircraft into and out of DCA must designate a security 
coordinator and adopt the DASSP. See 49 CFR 1562.21 and 1562.23. Once 
aircraft operators have adopted the DASSP, the operators must request a 
tentative slot reservation from the Federal Aviation Administration 
(FAA) and request authorization from TSA to fly into or out of DCA. 
This information is collected under OMB control number 1652-0033 TSA 
Airspace Waiver Program. If TSA approves the flight, TSA will transmit 
that information to FAA.

Applicant Collection for DCA Access Standard Security Program

    The DASSP application collects basic information about the 
applicant, the aircraft operator, and the security coordinator that the 
operator wishes to designate, as well as the identifier of the airport 
used as a base of operation and whether the operator presently complies 
with a TSA Standard Security Program.
    TSA also requires the following individuals to submit fingerprints 
for a criminal history records check (CHRC) and other identifying 
information for a name-based security threat assessment: Individuals 
designated as security coordinators by Fixed Base Operators (FBOs) 
under 49 CFR 1562.25 \1\ and GA aircraft operators under 1562.23; 
flight crewmembers who operate GA aircraft into and out of DCA in 
accordance with 49 CFR 1562.23 and DASSP; and ASOs approved in 
accordance with 49 CFR part 1562.29. For flight crewmembers, TSA also 
uses this information to check their FAA records to determine whether 
they have a record of violation of specified FAA regulations. As part 
of the threat assessment process, TSA shares the information with the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the FAA.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ An FBO is an airport-based commercial enterprise that 
provides support services to aircraft operators, such as 
maintenance, overnight parking, fueling and de-icing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Aircraft operators must also maintain CHRC records of all employees 
and authorized representatives for whom a CHRC has been completed. 
These records must be made available to TSA upon request.

Applicant Collection for the Armed Security Officer Program

    Under the Armed Security Officers Program, established by 49 CFR 
1562.29, aircraft operators and FBOs participating in this program can 
nominate the individuals they would like to be qualified as ASOs by 
submitting an ASO nomination form to TSA. Once nominated, the ASOs are 
required to submit fingerprints and identifying information, personal 
history information, a photograph, and weapon information before an ASO 
application can be approved. TSA uses the applicants' information to 
conduct a complete application vetting to include fingerprint-based 
CHRC and security threat assessment, including employment history 
verification check of all prior law enforcement positions. Upon 
successful completion of these checks and law enforcement employment 
history review, TSA makes the final determination of ASO applicant 
eligibility. All qualified applicants must then successfully complete a 
TSA-approved training course.
    TSA estimates a total of 76 respondents annually for DASSP 
applications, with an annual hour burden estimate of 76. TSA adjusted 
the 2016 ICR submission respondent numbers to reflect a burden based on 
aircraft operators only. In addition, TSA estimates 84 respondents 
annually for ASO nominations, with an annual hour burden of 98. The 
total number of respondents is estimated to be 160, the annual burden 
hours is estimated to be 174 hours per year.
