Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Applicants to the NIJ Compliance Testing Program and Testing Laboratories, which are businesses or other for-profit organizations. The purpose of the voluntary NIJ Compliance Testing Program is to provide confidence that equipment used for law enforcement and corrections applications meets minimum published performance requirements. One type of equipment is ballistic body armor. Ballistic body armor models that are determined to meet minimum requirements by NIJ and listed on the NIJ Compliant Products List are eligible for reimbursement through the Ballistic Vest Partnership. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: As of December 31, 2018, approximately 1,250 unique ballistic armor models have been submitted to the NIJ CTP by approximately 300 companies for compliance testing since OMB Number 1121–0321 was issued in 2009. Approximately one third of the companies that submitted armor are not based in the U.S., however only U.S. companies will be considered for the purpose of estimating the burden on the public. Therefore, a total of 200 responses is estimated for the following three forms over several years: NIJ CTP Applicant Agreement: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes every year (and 50 responses per year after that); NIJ CTP Authorized Representatives Notification: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes every year (and 50 responses per year after that); NIJ CTP Electronic Signature Agreement: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes every year (and 50 responses per year after that). Each time a new armor model is submitted to the NIJ CTP for testing, the following four forms must be completed. Respondents may submit as many armor models as they choose to the NIJ CTP and are therefore not limited to only one response. The number of overall submissions over the past decade roughly translates to 125 unique ballistic armor models tested per year. A fraction of those armors are submitted by companies not based in the U.S., however only U.S. companies will be considered for the purpose of estimating the burden on the public. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:42 Aug 02, 2019 Jkt 247001 Therefore, a total of 100 responses is estimated for the following four forms per year: NIJ CTP Body Armor Agreement: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes every year; NIJ CTP Body Armor Build Sheet: Estimated 100 responses at 2 hours every year; NIJ CTP Manufacturing Location Notification: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes each every year; NIJ CTP Listee Notification: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes every year; Testing laboratories provide responses to the laboratory agreement form and are therefore considered respondents in this case. There are currently four laboratories that participate in the NIJ CTP. Laboratories renew their status with the NIJ CTP roughly every two years. NIJ Approved Laboratory Application and Agreement: Estimated 4 responses at 8 hours every two years, or a total of 16 hours on average per year. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: 366 hours the first year and 328.5 hours per year in subsequent years.

Overview of This Information Collection

    1. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a Currently Approved 
Collection.
    2. The Title of the Form/Collection: National Institute of Justice 
Compliance Testing Program (NIJ CTP). This collection consists of eight 
forms: NIJ CTP Applicant Agreement; NIJ CTP Authorized Representatives 
Notification; NIJ CTP Electronic Signature Agreement; NIJ CTP Body 
Armor Build Sheet; NIJ CTP Body Armor Agreement; NIJ CTP Manufacturing 
Location Notification; NIJ CTP Multiple Listee Notification; NIJ 
Approved Laboratory Application and Agreement.
    3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the

[[Page 38060]]

Department sponsoring the collection: There is no agency form number 
for this collection. The applicable component within the Department of 
Justice is the National Institute of Justice, Office of Justice 
Programs.
    4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Applicants to the NIJ Compliance Testing 
Program and Testing Laboratories, which are businesses or other for-
profit organizations. The purpose of the voluntary NIJ Compliance 
Testing Program is to provide confidence that equipment used for law 
enforcement and corrections applications meets minimum published 
performance requirements. One type of equipment is ballistic body 
armor. Ballistic body armor models that are determined to meet minimum 
requirements by NIJ and listed on the NIJ Compliant Products List are 
eligible for reimbursement through the Ballistic Vest Partnership.
    5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of 
time estimated for an average respondent to respond: As of December 31, 
2018, approximately 1,250 unique ballistic armor models have been 
submitted to the NIJ CTP by approximately 300 companies for compliance 
testing since OMB Number 1121-0321 was issued in 2009. Approximately 
one third of the companies that submitted armor are not based in the 
U.S., however only U.S. companies will be considered for the purpose of 
estimating the burden on the public. Therefore, a total of 200 
responses is estimated for the following three forms over several 
years:
    NIJ CTP Applicant Agreement: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes 
every year (and 50 responses per year after that);
    NIJ CTP Authorized Representatives Notification: Estimated 100 
responses at 15 minutes every year (and 50 responses per year after 
that);
    NIJ CTP Electronic Signature Agreement: Estimated 100 responses at 
15 minutes every year (and 50 responses per year after that).
    Each time a new armor model is submitted to the NIJ CTP for 
testing, the following four forms must be completed. Respondents may 
submit as many armor models as they choose to the NIJ CTP and are 
therefore not limited to only one response. The number of overall 
submissions over the past decade roughly translates to 125 unique 
ballistic armor models tested per year. A fraction of those armors are 
submitted by companies not based in the U.S., however only U.S. 
companies will be considered for the purpose of estimating the burden 
on the public. Therefore, a total of 100 responses is estimated for the 
following four forms per year:
    NIJ CTP Body Armor Agreement: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes 
every year;
    NIJ CTP Body Armor Build Sheet: Estimated 100 responses at 2 hours 
every year;
    NIJ CTP Manufacturing Location Notification: Estimated 100 
responses at 15 minutes each every year;
    NIJ CTP Listee Notification: Estimated 100 responses at 15 minutes 
every year; Testing laboratories provide responses to the laboratory 
agreement form and are therefore considered respondents in this case. 
There are currently four laboratories that participate in the NIJ CTP. 
Laboratories renew their status with the NIJ CTP roughly every two 
years.
    NIJ Approved Laboratory Application and Agreement: Estimated 4 
responses at 8 hours every two years, or a total of 16 hours on average 
per year.
    6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: 366 hours the first year and 328.5 hours per year 
in subsequent years.
