On October 10, 2008, the National Marine Fisheries Service published a final rule implementing speed restrictions to reduce the incidence and severity of ship collisions with North Atlantic right whales (73 FR 60173). Under this rule, most non-sovereign vessels greater than or equal to 65ft in overall length are required to travel at a speed of 10 knots or less within Seasonal Management Areas along the east coast at certain times of year. The final rule contained a collectionof-information requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) in limited circumstances when a vessel needs to transit at a speed above 10 knots to maintain safe maneuverability. Specifically, 50 CFR 224.105(c) requires a logbook entry if a deviation from the 10 knot speed limit is necessary for safe maneuverability of a vessel ‘‘in an area where oceanographic, hydrographic and/or meteorological conditions severely restrict the maneuverability of the vessel’’. The logbook entry must provide the reasons for the deviation, the speed at which the vessel is operated and the area, time and duration of the deviation. This extension includes a modest increase in the anticipated number of respondents and annual burden hours due to an increase in the number of vessels transiting through seasonal speed restricted areas over time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The information is being collected as a necessary step to regulate the private space-based remote sensing industry, which involves issuing licenses to applicants and ensuring their compliance with license terms. The Department of Commerce (DOC), through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), has the authority to regulate private space-based remote sensing under the Land Remote Sensing Policy Act of 1992, 51 U.S.C. 60101 et seq. (the Act) and regulations at 15 CFR part 960. The regulations facilitate the development of the U.S. private remote sensing industry and thus promote the collection and widespread availability of remote sensing data, while preserving essential U.S. national security interests and observing international obligations. Applications are made in response to the requirements in the Act, as amended, and no collection forms are used. The application information received is used to determine if the applicant meets the legal criteria for issuance of a license to operate a private remote sensing space system i.e., the proposed system will be operated in accordance with the Act, U.S. national security concerns and international obligations. Application information includes: Corporate information; launch segment information; space segment information; ground segment information; plans and/or pricing policy for providing access to or distributing the unenhanced data generated by the system; and the plan for post-mission disposition of any Remote Sensing satellites. Once an applicant holds a license, he/ she is subject to amendment filings and notification requirements concerning an executive summary of the licensed system, foreign agreements, deviation in orbits, planned disposition of the spacecraft, data protection plans, preliminary design reviews, critical design reviews, certification of launch contract and pre-ship review of the satellite; and notification of system demise or decision to discontinue operations. The licensee is required to provide NOAA an executive summary that can be provided to the public within 30 days of obtaining a NOAA license. PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Monitoring and compliance information is used to ascertain that the licensee’s activities meet the requirements of the Act, applicable regulations, and license conditions. The following information collections serve as part of the monitoring and compliance function: Annual compliance audits; data collection restriction plans; operation plans for restricting collection and dissemination of imaging Israeli territory; data flow diagrams; satellite sub-system diagrams and imaging system specification sheets; operational declarations; quarterly reports; purge notifications; and annual operational audits.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a revision and extension of a currently 
approved information collection.
    On October 10, 2008, the National Marine Fisheries Service 
published a final rule implementing speed restrictions to reduce the 
incidence and severity of ship collisions with North Atlantic right 
whales (73 FR 60173). Under this rule, most non-sovereign vessels 
greater than or equal to 65ft in overall length are required to travel 
at a speed of 10 knots or less within Seasonal Management Areas along 
the east coast at certain times of year.
    The final rule contained a collection-of-information requirement 
subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) in limited circumstances 
when a vessel needs to transit at a speed above 10 knots to maintain 
safe maneuverability. Specifically, 50 CFR 224.105(c) requires a 
logbook entry if a deviation from the 10 knot speed limit is necessary 
for safe maneuverability of a vessel ``in an area where oceanographic, 
hydrographic and/or meteorological conditions severely restrict the 
maneuverability of the vessel''. The logbook entry must provide the 
reasons for the deviation, the speed at which the vessel is operated 
and the area, time and duration of the deviation.
    This extension includes a modest increase in the anticipated number 
of respondents and annual burden hours due to an increase in the number 
of vessels transiting through seasonal speed restricted areas over 
time.

II. Method of Collection

    This information collection requires an entry into the vessel's 
logbook.

III. Data

    OMB Control Number: 0648-0580.
    Form Number(s): None.

profit institutions and individuals or households.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3263.
    Estimated Time per Response: 5 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 272.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0 in recordkeeping/
recording costs.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of

practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of 
information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of 
the collection of information on respondents, including through the use
