E:\FR\FM\31MYN1.SGM 31MYN1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 105 / Friday, May 31, 2019 / Notices OMB Approval Number: 3072–0018 (Expired March 31, 2019). Abstract: The Shipping Act of 1984 (the Act), 46 U.S.C. 40101–41309 (2006), as modified by Public Law 105–258 (The Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998) and Section 424 of Public Law 105–383 (The Coast Guard Authorization Act of 1998), provides that no person in the United States may act as an ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) unless that person holds a license issued by the Commission. The Commission shall issue an OTI license to any person that the Commission determines to be qualified by experience and character to act as an OTI. Further, no person may act as an OTI unless that person furnishes a bond, proof of insurance, or other surety in a form and amount determined by the Commission to ensure financial responsibility. The Commission has implemented the Act’s OTI requirements in regulations contained in 46 CFR part 515, including financial responsibility Forms FMC–48, FMC–67, FMC–68, and FMC–69, Optional Rider Forms FMC–48A and FMC–69A, its related license application Form FMC–18, and the related foreign-based unlicensed NVOCC registration/renewal Form FMC–65. Type of Request: Reinstatement, with changes of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired. Proposed Changes: The proposed changes to the collection reflect proposed changes to Part 515 in a recent rulemaking, which include: (a) Removing optional paper application process and related reference to fee amounts; (b) clarifying language specifying who can be the Qualifying Individual in a partnership between entities other than individuals; (c) updating description of processes regarding renewals, bonds, and terminations; (d) expanding the types of applications subject to direct Commission review to include applicants employing the same officers, managers, or members of an OTI whose license was revoked or denied within the previous three years; (e) clarifying that sureties provide the organization number of OTIs with claim details for registered NVOCCs; (f) adding the submission of Form FMC–1 prior to being licensed; and (g) deleting reference to availability of the Regulated Person’s Index (RPI) upon request. Most of the proposed changes seek to streamline licensing, registration, renewal, and termination processes so that the Commission and licensees and registrants can receive and transmit VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:42 May 30, 2019 Jkt 247001 documents electronically; remove references to paper application and registration forms on the basis that no requests for waivers were received; and assist carriers in verifying an NVOCC’s compliance with OTI licensing, tariff, and financial responsibility requirements by adding the requirement that Form FMC–1 be submitted prior to issuance of an OTI license. Electronic filing of applications, registrations, and financial responsibility documents reduces cost to OTIs and the Commission and facilitates Commission review and issuance of OTI licenses and registrations. The Commission currently issues OTI licenses upon receipt of evidence of financial responsibility. Licensees that are NVOCCs must publish a tariff and notify the Commission using Form FMC–1, prior to commencing NVOCC service. The proposed change to issue an NVOCC OTI license upon receipt of financial responsibility and Form FMC–1 will assist common carriers in determining an NVOCC’s compliance with the OTI licensing, tariff, and financial responsibility requirements. Foreignregistered NVOCCs submit a Form FMC–65, Form FMC–1, and evidence of financial responsibility to the Commission prior to commencing NVOCC service. The Commission is clarifying that sureties provide the organization number of OTIs with claim details for registered NVOCCs. The sureties currently provide similar identifying information for licensed OTIs. Data contained in the RPI can be downloaded at no cost from the Commission’s website, and therefore the Commission is proposing to delete reference of the availability of the RPI. Purpose: The Commission uses information obtained under this part and through Form FMC–18 to determine the qualifications of OTIs and their compliance with the Act and regulations and to enable the Commission to discharge its duties under the Act by ensuring that OTIs maintain acceptable evidence of financial responsibility. If the collection of information were not conducted, there would be no basis upon which the Commission could determine if applicants are qualified for licensing. The Commission would also not be able to effectively assess the compliance of foreign-based unlicensed NVOCCs without the required registration information. Frequency: This information is collected when applicants apply for a license or registration, complete the triennial renewal, or when existing licensees or registrants change certain information in their application forms. PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25275 Type of Respondents: The types of respondents are persons desiring to obtain or maintain a license or registration to act as an OTI. Under the Act, OTIs may be either an ocean freight forwarder, a non-vessel-operating common carrier, or both. Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential annual respondent universe of 6,475 entities. Estimated Time per Response: The time per response to complete application Form FMC–18 averages 2 hours and to complete the triennial renewal is 10 minutes. The time to complete a financial responsibility form averages 20 minutes. The time to complete Form FMC–65 to submit or renew a registration as a foreign-based unlicensed NVOCC averages 10 minutes. Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the total annual burden at 3,941 hours. Rachel Dickon, Secretary.

Requirements, and General Duties for Ocean Transportation 
Intermediaries and Related Forms.

[[Page 25275]]

    OMB Approval Number: 3072-0018 (Expired March 31, 2019).
    Abstract: The Shipping Act of 1984 (the Act), 46 U.S.C. 40101-41309 
(2006), as modified by Public Law 105-258 (The Ocean Shipping Reform 
Act of 1998) and Section 424 of Public Law 105-383 (The Coast Guard 
Authorization Act of 1998), provides that no person in the United 
States may act as an ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) unless 
that person holds a license issued by the Commission. The Commission 
shall issue an OTI license to any person that the Commission determines 
to be qualified by experience and character to act as an OTI. Further, 
no person may act as an OTI unless that person furnishes a bond, proof 
of insurance, or other surety in a form and amount determined by the 
Commission to ensure financial responsibility. The Commission has 
implemented the Act's OTI requirements in regulations contained in 46 
CFR part 515, including financial responsibility Forms FMC-48, FMC-67, 
FMC-68, and FMC-69, Optional Rider Forms FMC-48A and FMC-69A, its 
related license application Form FMC-18, and the related foreign-based 
unlicensed NVOCC registration/renewal Form FMC-65.
    Type of Request: Reinstatement, with changes of a previously 
approved collection for which approval has expired.
    Proposed Changes: The proposed changes to the collection reflect 
proposed changes to Part 515 in a recent rulemaking, which include: (a) 
Removing optional paper application process and related reference to 
fee amounts; (b) clarifying language specifying who can be the 
Qualifying Individual in a partnership between entities other than 
individuals; (c) updating description of processes regarding renewals, 
bonds, and terminations; (d) expanding the types of applications 
subject to direct Commission review to include applicants employing the 
same officers, managers, or members of an OTI whose license was revoked 
or denied within the previous three years; (e) clarifying that sureties 
provide the organization number of OTIs with claim details for 
registered NVOCCs; (f) adding the submission of Form FMC-1 prior to 
being licensed; and (g) deleting reference to availability of the 
Regulated Person's Index (RPI) upon request.
    Most of the proposed changes seek to streamline licensing, 
registration, renewal, and termination processes so that the Commission 
and licensees and registrants can receive and transmit documents 
electronically; remove references to paper application and registration 
forms on the basis that no requests for waivers were received; and 
assist carriers in verifying an NVOCC's compliance with OTI licensing, 
tariff, and financial responsibility requirements by adding the 
requirement that Form FMC-1 be submitted prior to issuance of an OTI 
license. Electronic filing of applications, registrations, and 
financial responsibility documents reduces cost to OTIs and the 
Commission and facilitates Commission review and issuance of OTI 
licenses and registrations. The Commission currently issues OTI 
licenses upon receipt of evidence of financial responsibility. 
Licensees that are NVOCCs must publish a tariff and notify the 
Commission using Form FMC-1, prior to commencing NVOCC service. The 
proposed change to issue an NVOCC OTI license upon receipt of financial 
responsibility and Form FMC-1 will assist common carriers in 
determining an NVOCC's compliance with the OTI licensing, tariff, and 
financial responsibility requirements. Foreign-registered NVOCCs submit 
a Form FMC-65, Form FMC-1, and evidence of financial responsibility to 
the Commission prior to commencing NVOCC service. The Commission is 
clarifying that sureties provide the organization number of OTIs with 
claim details for registered NVOCCs. The sureties currently provide 
similar identifying information for licensed OTIs. Data contained in 
the RPI can be downloaded at no cost from the Commission's website, and 
therefore the Commission is proposing to delete reference of the 
availability of the RPI.
    Purpose: The Commission uses information obtained under this part 
and through Form FMC-18 to determine the qualifications of OTIs and 
their compliance with the Act and regulations and to enable the 
Commission to discharge its duties under the Act by ensuring that OTIs 
maintain acceptable evidence of financial responsibility. If the 
collection of information were not conducted, there would be no basis 
upon which the Commission could determine if applicants are qualified 
for licensing. The Commission would also not be able to effectively 
assess the compliance of foreign-based unlicensed NVOCCs without the 
required registration information.
    Frequency: This information is collected when applicants apply for 
a license or registration, complete the triennial renewal, or when 
existing licensees or registrants change certain information in their 
application forms.
    Type of Respondents: The types of respondents are persons desiring 
to obtain or maintain a license or registration to act as an OTI. Under 
the Act, OTIs may be either an ocean freight forwarder, a non-vessel-
operating common carrier, or both.
    Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential 
annual respondent universe of 6,475 entities.
    Estimated Time per Response: The time per response to complete 
application Form FMC-18 averages 2 hours and to complete the triennial 
renewal is 10 minutes. The time to complete a financial responsibility 
form averages 20 minutes. The time to complete Form FMC-65 to submit or 
renew a registration as a foreign-based unlicensed NVOCC averages 10 
minutes.
    Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the total annual 
burden at 3,941 hours.

Secretary.
