SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Motor Carrier Records Change Form. OMB Control Number: 2126–0060. Type of Request: Renewal and revision. Respondents: For-hire motor carriers, brokers, and freight forwarders. Estimated Number of Respondents: 27,122. Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes per response. Expiration Date: August 31, 2021. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 6,781 hours [27,122 responses × 0.25 hours per response]. Background The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) registers forhire motor carriers 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). 49 CFR 365.413, ‘‘Procedures for changing the name or business form of a motor carrier, freight forwarder, or property broker,’’ states that motor carriers, forwarders, and brokers must submit the required information to FMCSA’s Office of Registration (MC-RS) requesting the change. 49 CFR 360.3(f) mentions fees that FMCSA collects for ‘‘petition for reinstatement of revoked operating authority,’’ but does not provide any specifics for the content that petition should take. Motor carriers, freight forwarders, and property brokers are required to use Form MCSA–5889 to request a name or address change and to request reinstatement of a revoked operating authority. Respondents can submit the form online through the Licensing and Insurance (L&I) website, by fax, or by mail. According to data collected between 2017 and 2019, annually, 1 percent of forms are submitted by mail; 32 percent are submitted by fax; and 67 percent are submitted online. The information collected is then entered in the L&I database by FMCSA staff. E:\FR\FM\19MRN1.SGM 19MRN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 52 / Friday, March 19, 2021 / Notices Form MCSA–5889 enables FMCSA to maintain up-to-date records so that the Agency can recognize the entity in question in case of enforcement actions or other procedures required to ensure that the carrier is fit, willing, and able to provide for-hire transportation services, and so that entities whose operating authority has been revoked can resume operation if they are not otherwise blocked from doing so. This multi-purpose form, filed by registrants on a voluntary, as-needed basis, simplifies the process of gathering the information needed to process the entities’ requests in a timely manner, with the least amount of effort for all parties involved. To reduce burden on respondents, increase consistency among FMCSA forms, and to ensure regulatory compliance, FMCSA removed and added the following questions from the currently approved Form MCSA–5889: 1. Added a Yes/No question: ‘‘Do you currently have, or have you had within the last three years of the date of this application, relationships involving common stock, common ownership, common management, common control or familial relationships with any FMCSA-regulated entities?’’ The purpose of this is to close the affiliation disclosure loophole. If the respondent answers ‘‘Yes’’, they must then report the affiliate’s USDOT number, MC/FF/ MX number, legal name, doing business as name (if applicable), and current safety rating. 2. Added the Applicant’s Oath. The applicant must read the oath, print their name and title, and sign the form. The purpose of this addition is to increase accountability and make Form MCSA– 5889 consistent with similar FMCSA forms. 3. Removed one question asking whether the applicant or its representative completed the form. This was removed because the information is not necessary. 4. Removed three questions: name, title, and signature. This was done because, with the addition of the Applicant’s Oath, these questions became redundant. The form prompts users to report the following data points (whichever are relevant to their records change request): • Requestor’s fax number, email address, and applicant’s oath. • Entity’s legal/doing business as names, USDOT number, docket MC/ MX/FX number, current street address, and phone numbers. • Affiliations with FMCSA-licensed entities. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Mar 18, 2021 Jkt 253001 • Requested changes to the entity’s address. • Requested changes to the entity’s name and/or ownership, management or control. • Type(s) of operating authority the entity wishes to reinstate. • Credit card information (name, number, expiration date, address, date) if filing a name change or reinstatement. FMCSA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register on November 25, 2020, (85 FR 75402), announcing the Agency’s intent to submit the Motor Carrier Records Change Form to OMB for approval, and requesting comments from the public.

Background

    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) registers 
for-hire motor carriers 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). 49 CFR 365.413, ``Procedures for changing the name or 
business form of a motor carrier, freight forwarder, or property 
broker,'' states that motor carriers, forwarders, and brokers must 
submit the required information to FMCSA's Office of Registration (MC-
RS) requesting the change. 49 CFR 360.3(f) mentions fees that FMCSA 
collects for ``petition for reinstatement of revoked operating 
authority,'' but does not provide any specifics for the content that 
petition should take.
    Motor carriers, freight forwarders, and property brokers are 
required to use Form MCSA-5889 to request a name or address change and 
to request reinstatement of a revoked operating authority. Respondents 
can submit the form online through the Licensing and Insurance (L&I) 
website, by fax, or by mail. According to data collected between 2017 
and 2019, annually, 1 percent of forms are submitted by mail; 32 
percent are submitted by fax; and 67 percent are submitted online. The 
information collected is then entered in the L&I database by FMCSA 
staff.

    Form MCSA-5889 enables FMCSA to maintain up-to-date records so that 
the Agency can recognize the entity in question in case of enforcement 
actions or other procedures required to ensure that the carrier is fit, 
willing, and able to provide for-hire transportation services, and so 
that entities whose operating authority has been revoked can resume 
operation if they are not otherwise blocked from doing so. This multi-
purpose form, filed by registrants on a voluntary, as-needed basis, 
simplifies the process of gathering the information needed to process 
the entities' requests in a timely manner, with the least amount of 
effort for all parties involved.
    To reduce burden on respondents, increase consistency among FMCSA 
forms, and to ensure regulatory compliance, FMCSA removed and added the 
following questions from the currently approved Form MCSA-5889:
    1. Added a Yes/No question: ``Do you currently have, or have you 
had within the last three years of the date of this application, 
relationships involving common stock, common ownership, common 
management, common control or familial relationships with any FMCSA-
regulated entities?'' The purpose of this is to close the affiliation 
disclosure loophole. If the respondent answers ``Yes'', they must then 
report the affiliate's USDOT number, MC/FF/MX number, legal name, doing 
business as name (if applicable), and current safety rating.
    2. Added the Applicant's Oath. The applicant must read the oath, 
print their name and title, and sign the form. The purpose of this 
addition is to increase accountability and make Form MCSA-5889 
consistent with similar FMCSA forms.
    3. Removed one question asking whether the applicant or its 
representative completed the form. This was removed because the 
information is not necessary.
    4. Removed three questions: name, title, and signature. This was 
done because, with the addition of the Applicant's Oath, these 
questions became redundant.
    The form prompts users to report the following data points 
(whichever are relevant to their records change request):
     Requestor's fax number, email address, and applicant's 
oath.
     Entity's legal/doing business as names, USDOT number, 
docket MC/MX/FX number, current street address, and phone numbers.
     Affiliations with FMCSA-licensed entities.
     Requested changes to the entity's address.
     Requested changes to the entity's name and/or ownership, 
management or control.
     Type(s) of operating authority the entity wishes to 
reinstate.
     Credit card information (name, number, expiration date, 
address, date) if filing a name change or reinstatement.
    FMCSA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register on November 
25, 2020, (85 FR 75402), announcing the Agency's intent to submit the 
Motor Carrier Records Change Form to OMB for approval, and requesting 
comments from the public. No comments we received.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the FMCSA to perform it's functions; (2) 
the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FMCSA to enhance 
the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and 
(4) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the 
quality of the collected information.
