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. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 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 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Oct 30, 2018 Jkt 247001 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. 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. Dated: October 25, 2018. Christina A.
