Overview of this information collection: (1) Type of Information Collection: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. (2) The Title of the Form/Collection: Inventories: Licensed Explosives Importers, Manufacturers, Dealers, and Permittees. (3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: Form number: None. Component: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Department of Justice. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Business or other for-profit. Other: None. Abstract: The information collection entitled Inventories: Licensed Explosives Importers, Manufacturers, Dealers, and Permittees, requires that persons engaged in the explosives industry maintain explosive material inventories. The collected information is used by the government to develop audit trails during the course of a compliance inspection or criminal investigation. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 9,433 respondents will respond to this collection annually, and it will take each respondent approximately 2 hours to provide their responses. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated annual public burden associated with this collection is 18, 866 hours, which is equal to 9,433 (# of responses) * 1 (# of responses per respondent) * 2 (total time in hours to respond to this IC). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Jul 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 (7) An Explanation of the Change in Estimates: The adjustment associated with this collection is a decrease in the number of respondents by 483 and a decrease in the total burden hours by 8,950, since the last renewal in 2017. The recalculated burden hours for this collection corresponds with the fact that each respondent responds only once, and now take 2 hours, instead of 1 hour to complete their responses.
