On July 14, 2020, the Commission published a notice and request for comment in the Federal Register (85 FR 42400) regarding the agency’s request to OMB for an extension for an information collection as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The Commission received no comments on the request for extension. The Commission has submitted the described information collection to OMB for approval. In response to this notice, comments and suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (1) The necessity and utility of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of the agency’s functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden. Information Collection Open for Comment Title: 46 CFR part 515—Licensing, Registration, Financial Responsibility Requirements and General Duties for Ocean Transportation Intermediaries. OMB Approval Number: 3072–0018 (December 31, 2022). Abstract: The Shipping Act of 1984 (the Act), 46 U.S.C. 40101–41309, as amended, provides that no person in the United States may advertise, hold oneself out, or act as an ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) unless that person holds a license issued by the Commission. The Commission shall issue an OTI license to any person that the Commission determines to be qualified by experience and character to act as an OTI. Further, no person may act as an OTI unless that person furnishes a bond, proof of insurance, or other surety in a form and amount determined by the Commission to insure financial responsibility. The Commission has implemented the Act’s OTI requirements in regulations contained in 46 CFR part 515, including financial responsibility Forms FMC–48, FMC–67, FMC–68, and FMC–69, Optional Rider Forms FMC–48A and FMC–69A, its related license application Form FMC–18, and the related foreign-based unlicensed NVOCC registration/renewal Form FMC–65. Type of Request: Extension with change. Proposed Changes: Through a Final Rule published in Docket No. 19–06, the Commission revised its regulations to PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71075 implement the provisions of the Frank LoBiondo Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2018. The revisions included amendments to the regulations governing OTIs to reflect statutory changes to the types of persons that are required to be licensed and maintain a bond, insurance, or other surety. The Final Rule also revised the regulations governing the general duties of nonvessel-operating common carriers (NVOCCs) to reflect amendments to several prohibited acts. In particular, the Final Rule eliminated the requirement that registered NVOCCs use only licensed OTIs as agents in the United States. Consistent with this change, the Commission proposes to remove that portion of the certification in the Form FMC–65 that requires applicants to certify that they will only use licensed OTIs for any OTI activities performed on their behalf in the United States. Purpose: The Commission uses information obtained under this part and through Form FMC–18 to determine the qualifications of OTIs and their compliance with the Act and regulations, and to enable the Commission to discharge its duties under the Act by ensuring that OTIs maintain acceptable evidence of financial responsibility. If the collection of information were not conducted, there would be no basis upon which the Commission could determine if applicants are qualified for licensing. The Commission would also not be able to effectively assess the compliance of foreign-based, unlicensed NVOCCs without the required registration information. Frequency: This information is collected when applicants apply for a license or submit a registration, complete the triennial renewal, or when existing licensees or registrants change their application forms. Type of Respondents: The types of respondents are persons desiring to obtain or maintain a license or registration to act as an OTI. Under the Act, OTIs may be either an ocean freight forwarder, a non-vessel-operating common carrier, or both. Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential annual respondent universe of 6,475 entities. Estimated Time per Response: The time per response to complete application Form FMC–18 averages 2 hours and to complete the triennial renewal is 10 minutes. The time to complete a financial responsibility form averages 20 minutes. The time to complete Form FMC–65 to submit or renew a registration as a foreign-based, E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1 71076 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 216 / Friday, November 6, 2020 / Notices unlicensed NVOCC averages 15 minutes. Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the total annual burden at 3,918 hours. Rachel Dickon, Secretary.

    Title: 46 CFR part 515--Licensing, Registration, Financial 
Responsibility Requirements and General Duties for Ocean Transportation 
Intermediaries.
    OMB Approval Number: 3072-0018 (December 31, 2022).
    Abstract: The Shipping Act of 1984 (the Act), 46 U.S.C. 40101-
41309, as amended, provides that no person in the United States may 
advertise, hold oneself out, or act as an ocean transportation 
intermediary (OTI) unless that person holds a license issued by the 
Commission. The Commission shall issue an OTI license to any person 
that the Commission determines to be qualified by experience and 
character to act as an OTI. Further, no person may act as an OTI unless 
that person furnishes a bond, proof of insurance, or other surety in a 
form and amount determined by the Commission to insure financial 
responsibility. The Commission has implemented the Act's OTI 
requirements in regulations contained in 46 CFR part 515, including 
financial responsibility Forms FMC-48, FMC-67, FMC-68, and FMC-69, 
Optional Rider Forms FMC-48A and FMC-69A, its related license 
application Form FMC-18, and the related foreign-based unlicensed NVOCC 
registration/renewal Form FMC-65.
    Type of Request: Extension with change.
    Proposed Changes: Through a Final Rule published in Docket No. 19-
06, the Commission revised its regulations to implement the provisions 
of the Frank LoBiondo Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2018. The 
revisions included amendments to the regulations governing OTIs to 
reflect statutory changes to the types of persons that are required to 
be licensed and maintain a bond, insurance, or other surety. The Final 
Rule also revised the regulations governing the general duties of non-
vessel-operating common carriers (NVOCCs) to reflect amendments to 
several prohibited acts. In particular, the Final Rule eliminated the 
requirement that registered NVOCCs use only licensed OTIs as agents in 
the United States. Consistent with this change, the Commission proposes 
to remove that portion of the certification in the Form FMC-65 that 
requires applicants to certify that they will only use licensed OTIs 
for any OTI activities performed on their behalf in the United States.
    Purpose: The Commission uses information obtained under this part 
and through Form FMC-18 to determine the qualifications of OTIs and 
their compliance with the Act and regulations, and to enable the 
Commission to discharge its duties under the Act by ensuring that OTIs 
maintain acceptable evidence of financial responsibility. If the 
collection of information were not conducted, there would be no basis 
upon which the Commission could determine if applicants are qualified 
for licensing. The Commission would also not be able to effectively 
assess the compliance of foreign-based, unlicensed NVOCCs without the 
required registration information.
    Frequency: This information is collected when applicants apply for 
a license or submit a registration, complete the triennial renewal, or 
when existing licensees or registrants change their application forms.
    Type of Respondents: The types of respondents are persons desiring 
to obtain or maintain a license or registration to act as an OTI. Under 
the Act, OTIs may be either an ocean freight forwarder, a non-vessel-
operating common carrier, or both.
    Number of Annual Respondents: The Commission estimates a potential 
annual respondent universe of 6,475 entities.
    Estimated Time per Response: The time per response to complete 
application Form FMC-18 averages 2 hours and to complete the triennial 
renewal is 10 minutes. The time to complete a financial responsibility 
form averages 20 minutes. The time to complete Form FMC-65 to submit or 
renew a registration as a foreign-based,

[[Page 71076]]

unlicensed NVOCC averages 15 minutes.
    Total Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the total annual 
burden at 3,918 hours.

Secretary.
