SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: FMCSA registers for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities under 49 U.S.C. 13902, surface freight forwarders under 49 U.S.C. 13903, and property brokers under 49 U.S.C. 13904. Each registration is effective from the date specified under 49 U.S.C. 13905 (c). Subsection (d) of 49 U.S.C. 13905 also provides that on application of the registrant, the Secretary may amend or revoke a registration, and hence the registrant’s operating authority. Form OCE–46 allows these registrants to apply voluntarily for revocation of their operating authority or parts thereof. If the registrant fails to maintain evidence of the required level of insurance coverage on file with FMCSA, its operating authority will be revoked involuntarily. Although the effect of both types of revocation is the same, some registrants prefer to request voluntary revocation. For various business reasons, a registrant may request revocation of some part, but not all, of its operating authority. This information collection, which supports the DOT Strategic Goal of Safety, is being revised to reflect modified estimates of burden hours and costs. For respondents, the program adjustment has resulted in increased total burden hours and an increase in respondent costs. The burden hour increase is due to an estimated increase in the number of annual filings of Form OCE–46 from 3,501 to 5,901 per year, resulting in an increase of 2,400 responses and 600 burden hours. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 Dec 17, 2019 Jkt 250001 The previous iteration of this ICR did not include estimated labor costs for respondents; it only reported the estimated annual burden hours. This version adds estimated labor costs according to best practices. The estimated annual labor cost for industry resulting from submitting Form OCE–46 is $49,527. The total annual respondent cost has decreased by $20,190. This decrease is due to the fact that respondents may now file the form online, at no charge. While the online submission option exists, FMCSA still estimates that approximately 1,567 respondents will continue to file the form by mail, which incurs notarization and postage fees. For the Federal Government, the program costs have increased by $11,176. While this ICR revised the Federal labor wage load factor downward to be consistent with the methodology used in other FMCSA ICRs, the overall cost to the Federal Government increased due to the increase in the number of forms received by FMCSA. Title: Request for Revocation of Authority Granted. OMB Control Number: 2126–0018. Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved information collection. Respondents: For-hire motor carriers, freight forwarders, and property brokers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,901. Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes (0.25 hours). Expiration Date: September 30, 2020. Frequency of Response: Other (as needed). Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,475 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: FMCSA registers for-hire motor carriers of regulated 
commodities under 49 U.S.C. 13902, surface freight forwarders under 49 
U.S.C. 13903, and property brokers under 49 U.S.C. 13904. Each 
registration is effective from the date specified under 49 U.S.C. 13905 
(c).
    Subsection (d) of 49 U.S.C. 13905 also provides that on application 
of the registrant, the Secretary may amend or revoke a registration, 
and hence the registrant's operating authority. Form OCE-46 allows 
these registrants to apply voluntarily for revocation of their 
operating authority or parts thereof. If the registrant fails to 
maintain evidence of the required level of insurance coverage on file 
with FMCSA, its operating authority will be revoked involuntarily. 
Although the effect of both types of revocation is the same, some 
registrants prefer to request voluntary revocation. For various 
business reasons, a registrant may request revocation of some part, but 
not all, of its operating authority.
    This information collection, which supports the DOT Strategic Goal 
of Safety, is being revised to reflect modified estimates of burden 
hours and costs. For respondents, the program adjustment has resulted 
in increased total burden hours and an increase in respondent costs. 
The burden hour increase is due to an estimated increase in the number 
of annual filings of Form OCE-46 from 3,501 to 5,901 per year, 
resulting in an increase of 2,400 responses and 600 burden hours.
    The previous iteration of this ICR did not include estimated labor 
costs for respondents; it only reported the estimated annual burden 
hours. This version adds estimated labor costs according to best 
practices. The estimated annual labor cost for industry resulting from 
submitting Form OCE-46 is $49,527.
    The total annual respondent cost has decreased by $20,190. This 
decrease is due to the fact that respondents may now file the form 
online, at no charge. While the online submission option exists, FMCSA 
still estimates that approximately 1,567 respondents will continue to 
file the form by mail, which incurs notarization and postage fees.
    For the Federal Government, the program costs have increased by 
$11,176. While this ICR revised the Federal labor wage load factor 
downward to be consistent with the methodology used in other FMCSA 
ICRs, the overall cost to the Federal Government increased due to the 
increase in the number of forms received by FMCSA.
