Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 66 / Thursday, April 8, 2021 / Notices blocked property or retained funds. Sections 501.801 and 501.805 relate, respectively, to license requests and records requests. Section 501.806 sets forth the procedures to be followed by a person seeking to have funds unblocked at a financial institution if the person believes that the funds were blocked due to mistaken identity. Section 501.807 sets forth the procedures to be followed by a person seeking administrative reconsideration of a designation or of a vessel as blocked, or who wishes to assert that the circumstances resulting in the designation or blocking no longer apply. The reports covered by this information collection will be reviewed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and may be used for compliance, civil penalty, and enforcement purposes by the agency. Forms: OFAC requires the submission of the Annual Report of Blocked Property (ARBP) through approved form: TD–F 90–22.50. OFAC also maintains voluntary forms for submission of certain other information required as a part of the information collections covered by this notice including the following approved forms: Report on Blocked Property—Financial, TD–F 93.02; Report on Blocked Property—Tangible/Real/Other NonFinancial Property, TD–F 93.08; Report on Rejected Transaction, TD–F 93.07; TSRA License Application, TD–F 93.04; and Licensing Cover Sheet, TD–F 98– 22.61. Any other information collections covered by this notice do not have mandatory or voluntary forms. Affected Public: Financial institutions, business organizations, individuals, and legal representatives. Estimated Number of Respondents: OFAC’s estimate for the number of unique reporting respondents is approximately 5,600. The significant decrease in the number of unique respondents since OFAC’s last information collection submission regarding the Regulations in 2019 is due to OFAC’s increased use of technology, which has enabled it to consolidate multiple filers within a single institution under one unique identification number assigned to the institution for all reports submitted to OFAC. Previously, OFAC did not have the ability to easily ascertain the number of unique respondents due to different identification numbers being selected for reports filed by different individuals within the same institution, or different branches or offices of the same institution. This inability to uniquely identify all reports associated with one institution led to counting numerous filers that were all associated VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Apr 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 with the same institution instead of counting the institutions themselves as unique respondents, resulting in an inflated number of respondents in past information collection submissions. OFAC is now adjusting its number of unique reporting respondents based on its more accurate data set. Frequency of Response: The estimated annual frequency of responses is between 1 and 4,641, varying greatly by entity depending on the size, nature, and scope of business activities of each respondent, with the majority of filers providing a small number of responses and a small number of filers submitting a higher number of responses. Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: The estimated total number of responses per year is approximately 30,051. Estimated Time per Response: OFAC assesses that there is an average time estimate for reports associated with forms ranging from 15 minutes to 2 hours and for reports associated with general licenses and other miscellaneous reports ranging from 15 minutes to 5 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The estimated total annual reporting burden is approximately 14,752 hours. Request for Comments Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services required to provide information.
