In addition, part 1544 requires the affected aircraft operators to submit information on aircraft operators’ flight crews and other employees, passengers, and cargo. The information collection includes information regarding security program, amendments, fingerprintbased criminal history records check (CHRC) applications; recordkeeping requirements for security program, CHRCs, and training; watchlist matching for employees and reporting matches to TSA; watchlist matching for passengers in case of Secure Flight outages; and incident and suspicious activity reporting. Aircraft operators may provide the information electronically or manually. Aircraft operators must ensure that certain flight crew members and employees (including certain contract employees and authorized representatives) submit to and receive a CHRC. These requirements apply to flight crew members and employees with unescorted access authority to a Security Identification Display Area (SIDA) or who perform screening, checked baggage, or cargo functions. As part of the CHRC process, the individual must provide identifying information, including fingerprints. Additionally, aircraft operators must maintain these records and make them available to TSA for inspection and copying upon request. TSA is revising the information collection and will no longer collect information regarding watchlist matching for Secure Flight outages. TSA has assumed from the private sector the responsibility for pre-flight screening of passengers and certain non-traveling individuals against the Federal Government watchlist, as required by sec. 4012(a) of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004,1 and consolidation of the aviation passenger watchlist matching function within one agency of the Federal Government. TSA no longer requires airlines to compare passenger names to watchlists during a Secure Flight outage. TSA estimates that there will be approximately 673 respondents to the information requirements described above, with a total annual burden estimate of approximately 569,686 hours. 1 Public Law 108–458, 118 Stat. 3638, 3714; Dec. 17, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christina A. Walsh at the above address, or by telephone (571) 227–2062. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be available at www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 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 1652–0053, Certified Cargo Screening Standard Security Program, 49 CFR parts 1515, 1540, 1544, 1546, 1548, and 1549. Section 1602 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 1 (9/11 Act) required the development of a system to screen 100 percent of such cargo no later than August 2010. This requirement was implemented through TSA’s regulations, including amendments to parts 1515, 1520, 1540, 1544, 1546, 1548 and adding part 1549. See 76 FR 51848 (Aug. 18, 2011). As part of these regulatory provisions, TSA 1 Public E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM Law 110–53; 121 Stat. 266 (Aug. 3, 2007). 13DEN1 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 64148 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 239 / Thursday, December 13, 2018 / Notices certifies qualified facilities as Certified Cargo Screening Facilities (CCSF) to screen cargo as part of the Certified Cargo Screening Standard Security Program (CCSSSP). Section 1941 of the TSA Modernization Act 2 amended provision in the 9/11 Act to require TSA to develop a program to enhance the screening of air cargo by leveraging the capabilities of third-party explosives detection canine teams. TSA must ensure the program provides for certified canine teams to conduct primary screening of air cargo for ‘‘air carriers, foreign air carriers, freight forwarders, and shippers.’’ Id. Facilities-based CCSFs may screen cargo off-airport and must implement measures to ensure a secure chain of custody from the point of screening to the point at which the cargo is tendered to the aircraft operator. A CCSF–K9 is an inherently mobile capability that can screen cargo at the facility owned and operated by one of TSA’s regulated entities. All CCSFs are required to engage TSA to assess whether a person or entity meets the standards of their security program. The ICR allows TSA to collect several categories of information as explained below. In this ICR, TSA currently collects the following information: (1) CCSF Applications. Under TSA regulations, an applicant is required to submit an application to become a CCSF at least 90 days before the intended date of operation, the contents of which are contained in 49 CFR 1549.7. In addition, once certified as a CCSF, the CCSF is required to submit any changes to the application information as they occur. CCSFs must renew their certification every 36 months by submitting a new complete application. CCSF applicants are required to provide TSA access to their records, equipment, and facilities necessary for TSA to conduct an eligibility assessment. (49 CFR 1549.7). (2) STA Applications. TSA regulations require that CCSF applicants ensure that individuals performing cargo screening and related functions, and their supervisors have completed an STA conducted by TSA. In addition, TSA regulations require CCSF Security Coordinators and their alternates to successfully have completed an STA. TSA regulations further require these individuals to submit personally identifiable information so that TSA can perform STAs. See TSA Form 419F, previously approved under OMB 2 Division K of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, Public Law 115–254; Stat. 132–3186 (Oct. 6, 2018). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Dec 12, 2018 Jkt 247001 control number 1652–0040 (49 CFR 1549.111, and 1549.103). (3) Security Programs. TSA requires CCSFs to accept and operate under a standard security program provided by TSA, or submit a proposed modified security program or amendment(s) to the designated TSA official for approval initially and periodically thereafter as required. (49 CFR 1549.7). (4) Recordkeeping. Require CCSFs to maintain records of compliance and make them available for TSA inspection (49 CFR 1549.105). TSA is revising the collection in response to changing conditions in the air cargo industry. To meet the demand of the enhanced air cargo screening standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and requirements of the TSA Modernization Act,3 TSA created the 3PK9–C program to provide an additional air cargo screening method under TSA’s regulations. Under this program, canine team providers can apply to be CCSF– K9s, regulated under 49 CFR part 1549. As holders of a CCSP–K9 security program, they can contract with air carriers and standard CCSFs to screen air cargo with canine explosives detection teams. The 3PK9–C program allows non-governmental certifiers, operating under the 3PK9–C Certifier Order, to evaluate canine teams to determine whether these teams meet the TSA certification standards. Due to the additional development of the 3PK9–C Program, the current information collection request will be revised to include the following: (1a) 3PK9–C Certifier Applications. TSA will require initial applications and changes to information in the application for any 3PK9–C Certifier, intending to operate under the 3PK9–C Certifier Order. (1b) CCSF–K9 Applications. Under TSA regulations, an applicant is required to submit an application to become a CCSF at least 90 days before the intended date of operation unless otherwise authorized by TSA. The contents of the initial application are contained in 49 CFR 1549.7. In addition, once certified as a CCSF, the CCSF–K9 will be required to submit an Operational Implementation Plan (OIP), described within the CCSP–K9 and any changes to the application information as they occur. CCSF–K9s must renew their certification every 36 months by submitting a new complete application. CCSF–K9 applicants will be required to provide TSA access to their records, equipment, and facilities necessary for 3 See PO 00000 text accompany n. 2 supra. Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 TSA to conduct an eligibility assessment. (49 CFR 1549.7). (2) STA Applications. TSA regulations require that individuals performing screening and related functions, their supervisors, those authorized to conduct 3PK9–C Program activities, and people supporting these functions successfully have completed an STA conducted by TSA. In addition, TSA regulations require CCSF Security Coordinators and their alternates to successfully have completed an STA. TSA regulations further require these individuals to submit personally identifiable information so that TSA can perform STAs. See TSA Form 419F, previously approved under OMB control number 1652–0040 (49 CFR 1549.111, and 1549.103). (3a) Security Programs. TSA will require CCSF–K9s to accept and operate under a standard security program provided by TSA, or submit a proposed modified security program or amendment(s) to the designated TSA official for approval initially and periodically thereafter as required. (49 CFR 1549.7). (3b) The 3PK9–C Certifier Order. TSA will require 3PK9–C Certifiers to accept standards provided by TSA, or submit a proposed modified standard to the designated TSA official for approval initially and periodically thereafter as required. (4) Recordkeeping. TSA will require 3PK9–C Certifiers and CCSF–K9s to maintain records of compliance with the Order and the CFR, making them available for TSA inspection (49 CFR 1549.105). (5) Significant Security Concerns Information. TSA will require 3PK9–C Certifiers, and CCSP–K9 Holders to report to TSA incidents, suspicious activities, and/or threat information. (6) Security Coordinator. TSA will require 3PK9–C Certifiers and CCSF– K9s to provide the name and contact information of the Security Coordinator (SC) and one or more designated alternates at the corporate or ownership level. Estimated Burden Hours As noted above, TSA has identified several separate information collections under this ICR. The 3PK9–C Certifiers information collections represent an estimated average of 79 respondents annually, including security threat assessment applicants for 3PK9–C, for an average annual hour burden of 2,555 hours. The CCSP–K9 Holder and Certified 3PK9–C Team information collections represent an estimated average of 567 respondents annually, including security threat assessment E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM 13DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 239 / Thursday, December 13, 2018 / Notices applicants for CCSP–K9 Holder and Certified 3PK9–C Teams, for an average annual hour burden of 496 hours. The CCSF information collections represent an estimated average of 6,320 respondents annually, for an average annual hour burden of 6,124 hours. Collectively, these information collections represent an estimated average of 6,966 respondents annually, for an average annual hour burden of 9,175 hours. Dated: December 6, 2018. Christina A.

You may also view the ICR at http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAMain. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. On June 11, 2018, we published a Federal Register notice requesting comments on this collection of information (83 FR 27017). In that notice, we invited comments for 60 days, ending on August 10, 2018. We received one comment that did not address the information collection requirements. We made no changes in response to that comment. We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the Service; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Service enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Service minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, and the Refuge Recreation Act of 1962 (16 U.S.C. 460k–460k–4), govern the administration and uses of national wildlife refuges and wetland management districts. The SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64149 Administration Act authorizes us to permit public uses, including hunting and fishing, on lands of the Refuge System when we find that the activity is compatible and appropriate with the purpose for which the refuge was established. The Recreation Act allows the use of refuges for public recreation when the use is not inconsistent or does not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of the refuge. We use FWS Form 3–2405 (SelfClearing Check-In Permit) to collect user information on hunting and fishing on refuges. This form offers a self-check-in feature not found on other similar forms, reducing the number of staffed check-in stations. We found this method increases game harvest reporting and provides better estimates of total numbers of game harvested. This form also requests users to report other species observed, data then used by refuge staff and state agencies for managing wildlife populations. Not all refuges will use this form and some refuges may collect the identical information in a nonform format (meaning there is no designated form associated with the collection of information). We collect: • Information on the visitor (name, address, and contact information). We use this information to identify the visitor or driver/passengers of a vehicle while on the refuge. Having this information readily available is critical in a search and rescue situation. We do not maintain or record this information. • Information on whether or not hunters/anglers were successful (number and type of harvest/caught). • Purpose of visit (hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, wildlife photography, auto touring, birding, hiking, boating/canoeing, visitor center, special event, environmental education class, volunteering, other recreation). • Species observed. • Date of visit. The above information is a vital tool in meeting refuge objectives and maintaining quality visitor experiences. It helps us: • Administer and monitor the quality of visitor programs and facilities on refuges. • Minimize resource disturbance, manage healthy game populations, and ensure the protection of fish and wildlife species through the check-in/ out process. • Assist in Statewide wildlife management and enforcement and develop reliable estimates of the number of key game fish and wildlife, like the Louisiana black bear (a recently delisted species).

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be 
available at www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in 
preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information 
collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
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 1652-0053, Certified Cargo Screening Standard 
Security Program, 49 CFR parts 1515, 1540, 1544, 1546, 1548, and 1549. 
Section 1602 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission 
Act of 2007 \1\ (9/11 Act) required the development of a system to 
screen 100 percent of such cargo no later than August 2010. This 
requirement was implemented through TSA's regulations, including 
amendments to parts 1515, 1520, 1540, 1544, 1546, 1548 and adding part 
1549. See 76 FR 51848 (Aug. 18, 2011). As part of these regulatory 
provisions, TSA

Law 115-254; Stat. 132-3186 (Oct. 6, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Facilities-based CCSFs may screen cargo off-airport and must 
implement measures to ensure a secure chain of custody from the point 
of screening to the point at which the cargo is tendered to the 
aircraft operator. A CCSF-K9 is an inherently mobile capability that 
can screen cargo at the facility owned and operated by one of TSA's 
regulated entities. All CCSFs are required to engage TSA to assess 
whether a person or entity meets the standards of their security 
program. The ICR allows TSA to collect several categories of 
information as explained below.
    In this ICR, TSA currently collects the following information:
    (1) CCSF Applications. Under TSA regulations, an applicant is 
required to submit an application to become a CCSF at least 90 days 
before the intended date of operation, the contents of which are 
contained in 49 CFR 1549.7. In addition, once certified as a CCSF, the 
CCSF is required to submit any changes to the application information 
as they occur. CCSFs must renew their certification every 36 months by 
submitting a new complete application. CCSF applicants are required to 
provide TSA access to their records, equipment, and facilities 
necessary for TSA to conduct an eligibility assessment. (49 CFR 
1549.7).
    (2) STA Applications. TSA regulations require that CCSF applicants 
ensure that individuals performing cargo screening and related 
functions, and their supervisors have completed an STA conducted by 
TSA. In addition, TSA regulations require CCSF Security Coordinators 
and their alternates to successfully have completed an STA. TSA 
regulations further require these individuals to submit personally 
identifiable information so that TSA can perform STAs. See TSA Form 
419F, previously approved under OMB control number 1652-0040 (49 CFR 
1549.111, and 1549.103).
    (3) Security Programs. TSA requires CCSFs to accept and operate 
under a standard security program provided by TSA, or submit a proposed 
modified security program or amendment(s) to the designated TSA 
official for approval initially and periodically thereafter as 
required. (49 CFR 1549.7).
    (4) Recordkeeping. Require CCSFs to maintain records of compliance 
and make them available for TSA inspection (49 CFR 1549.105).
    TSA is revising the collection in response to changing conditions 
in the air cargo industry. To meet the demand of the enhanced air cargo 
screening standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization 
(ICAO) and requirements of the TSA Modernization Act,\3\ TSA created 
the 3PK9-C program to provide an additional air cargo screening method 
under TSA's regulations. Under this program, canine team providers can 
apply to be CCSF-K9s, regulated under 49 CFR part 1549. As holders of a 
CCSP-K9 security program, they can contract with air carriers and 
standard CCSFs to screen air cargo with canine explosives detection 
teams. The 3PK9-C program allows non-governmental certifiers, operating 
under the 3PK9-C Certifier Order, to evaluate canine teams to determine 
whether these teams meet the TSA certification standards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See text accompany n. 2 supra.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Due to the additional development of the 3PK9-C Program, the 
current information collection request will be revised to include the 
following:
    (1a) 3PK9-C Certifier Applications. TSA will require initial 
applications and changes to information in the application for any 
3PK9-C Certifier, intending to operate under the 3PK9-C Certifier 
Order.
    (1b) CCSF-K9 Applications. Under TSA regulations, an applicant is 
required to submit an application to become a CCSF at least 90 days 
before the intended date of operation unless otherwise authorized by 
TSA. The contents of the initial application are contained in 49 CFR 
1549.7. In addition, once certified as a CCSF, the CCSF-K9 will be 
required to submit an Operational Implementation Plan (OIP), described 
within the CCSP-K9 and any changes to the application information as 
they occur. CCSF-K9s must renew their certification every 36 months by 
submitting a new complete application. CCSF-K9 applicants will be 
required to provide TSA access to their records, equipment, and 
facilities necessary for TSA to conduct an eligibility assessment. (49 
CFR 1549.7).
