Title: Hazardous Materials Training Requirements. Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this collection of information. Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: The FAA, as prescribed in 14 CFR parts 121 and 135, requires certificate holders to submit manuals and hazardous materials (hazmat) training programs, or revisions to an approved hazmat training program to DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:57 Nov 01, 2018 Jkt 247001 obtain initial and final approval as part of the FAA certification process. Original certification is completed in accordance with 14 CFR part 119. Continuing certification is completed in accordance with 14 CFR parts 121 and 135. The FAA uses the approval process to determine compliance of the hazmat training programs with the applicable regulations, national policies and safe operating practices. The FAA must ensure that the documents adequately establish safe operating procedures. Additionally, 14 CFR part 145 requires certain repair stations to provide documentation showing that persons handling hazmat for transportation have been trained following DOT guidelines. Respondents: Part 121, 135, and 145 certificate holders. Approximately 2,800. Frequency: Information is collected on occasion. Part 121 and part 135 operators are required to submit documentation of their hazardous materials training to receive original certification. If the operator decides to make a change to their training program, they must provide the updated manual. Part 145 repair station is required to submit a statement to the FAA certifying that all of their hazmat employees are trained under the Hazardous Materials Regulations prior to receiving their initial part 145 certificate. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The amount of time per response is expected to vary. For example, new responses take significantly longer than revisions. Furthermore, operators with will-carry hazardous materials operations are anticipated to have longer responses than will-not carry hazardous materials operations. Part 145 repair stations will require less time to develop a certification statements than operators require to develop a manual. Additionally certificate holders vary in the type and size of the operations. Certificate holders are not anticipated to spend the same amount of time each year. Therefore, based on FAA’s subject matter expertise we continue to expect reporting to take an average .6 hours, and recordkeeping to take .7 hours for a total of 1.3 hours per response. These are an annualized average which account for the wide variability in the type, complexity and size of operation. Additionally, the type of update can vary. Operators may make minor revisions to the manual, or they may choose to make more significant changes reflecting a larger change in their operations. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 7,300 hours.

ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: The FAA, Eastern Service Center is issuing this notice to advise the public of the availability of the Categorical Exclusion/Record of Decision (CATEX/ROD) for the Boston Harbor Seaplane Operation. The FAA reviewed the action and determined it to be categorically excluded from further environmental review. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Andrew Pieroni, Federal Aviation Administration, Operations Support Group, Eastern Service Center, 1701 Columbia Avenue, College Park, Georgia 30337, (404) 305–5586. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to implement a Letter of Agreement (LOA) between Boston Airport Traffic Control Tower (BOS ATCT), Boston Consolidated Terminal Radar Approach Control (A90) and Hyannis Air Service Inc., (OBA Cape Air [KAP]) for seaplane operations in the Boston, Massachusetts Inner Harbor. This proposed LOA would ensure standardized, safe and de-conflicted seaplane operations in the Boston, Massachusetts Inner Harbor from BOS ATCT operations and allows for efficient airspace operations in the General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport (BOS) Class B airspace. The proposed VFR handling of seaplane arrivals and departures will enhance safety and minimize delays for aircraft at BOS. The FAA reviewed the action and determined it to be categorically excluded from further environmental review according to FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. The applicable categorical exclusion is § 5–6.S(i.). SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\02NON1.SGM 02NON1
