Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on April 10, 2020 (85 FR 20333). The FAA has seen increased operations of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) flying under 14 CFR part 107. Under 14 CFR 107.205, operators of small UAS may seek waivers from certain operational rules. The FAA is updating and modernizing the process for applying for such waivers using the DroneZone website. These improvements will facilitate the process of collecting and submitting the information required as part of a waiver application. The reporting burdens for operational waiver applications are currently covered by Information Collection Request (ICR) 2120–0768. As part of this effort, the FAA is creating a new ICR just for operational waiver applications. In order to process operational waiver requests, the FAA requires the operator’s name, the operator’s contact information, and information related to the date, place, and time of the requested small UAS operation. Additional information is required related to the proposed waiver and any necessary mitigations. The FAA will use the requested information to determine if the proposed UAS operation can be conducted safely. This information is necessary for the FAA to meet its statutory mandate of maintaining a safe and efficient national airspace. See 49 U.S.C. 40103, 44701 and 44708. Respondents: sUAS Operators: 8,034 per year. Frequency: On occasion. For requests for operational waivers, a respondent E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 194 / Tuesday, October 6, 2020 / Notices will need to provide the information once at the time of the request for the waiver.

Overview STA has determined that certain STA light truck tires do not fully comply with paragraph S6.5(f) of FMVSS No. 119, New Pneumatic Tires for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of More than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) and Motorcycles (49 CFR 571.119) or paragraphs S5.5(e) and (f) of FMVSS No. 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles (49 CFR 571.139). STA filed noncompliance reports dated August 27, 2019, November 15, 2019, and November 18, 2019, pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports. STA also petitioned NHTSA on September 16, 2019, and December 13, 2019, and later amended the former on March 3, 2020, for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) and 49 CFR part 556, Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance. This notice of receipt, of STA’s petitions, is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercises of judgment concerning the merits of the petitions. II. Tires Involved Approximately 5,489 of the following STA light truck tires, manufactured between January 1, 2009, and October 27, 2019, and certified to FMVSS No. 119, are potentially involved: • 8–17.5 LT STA Super Traxion • 8–17.5 STA Super Transport • 8–14.5LT G/14 STA Super Transport • 8–14.5LT F 12 STA Super Transport • 7.50–18 STA Super Traxion • 7.50–17 STA Super Transport • 10.00–20 STA Super Transport Approximately 2,887 of the following STA light truck tires, manufactured between February 2, 2014, and September 1, 2019, and certified to FMVSS No. 139, are potentially involved: • 37x12.50R20LT Interco SSR • 37x12.50R17LT Interco SSR • 35x12.50–16LT Interco Thornbird • 33x13.50R17LT Interco Irok III. Noncompliance STA explains that in both cases, the noncompliance is that the sidewalls of the subject tires incorrectly state the ply material and number of plies and, therefore, do not meet the applicable requirement specified in either paragraph S6.5 of FMVSS No. 119 or paragraphs S5.5(e) and (f) of FMVSS No. E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
