For purposes of this document, CCSFs refers to both facility-based CCSFs and CCSF– K9s. Abstract: TSA is seeking continued approval from OMB for the collection of information contained in the ICR. Section 1602 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Public Law 110–53 (121 Stat. 266, Aug. 3, 2007) (9/ 11 Act) required the development of a system to screen 100 percent of such cargo no later than August 2010. TSA currently requires 100 percent screening of all cargo transported on passenger aircraft.1 The screening of air cargo must be in a manner approved by TSA and be commensurate with the level of security for the screening of passenger checked baggage.2 TSA’s regulations in 49 CFR part 1549 for the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) support the 9/11 Act mandate by providing an alternative means of compliance with the 100 percent screening requirement. In order to comply with the statutory mandate, the CCSP allows shippers, indirect air carriers, and other entities to voluntarily participate in a program through which TSA certifies entities to screen air cargo off-airport before it is tendered to air carriers for transport on passenger aircraft. CCSFs may screen cargo offairport and must implement measures to ensure a secure chain of custody from the point of screening to the point at which the cargo is tendered to the aircraft operator. In addition, TSA developed a program to certify 3PK9–C Teams to screen air cargo.3 TSA incorporated this capability under the framework of the CCSP, providing an opportunity for canine team providers to choose to be regulated as CCSFs under 49 CFR part 1549 and approved to use Certified 3PK9–C Teams to screen cargo for TSA regulated entities. TSA’s three primary programs issued under 49 CFR part 1549 provides standards for compliance for those entities subject to the program’s requirements: (1) The Certified Cargo Screening Security Program, applicable to facilities-based CCSFs; (2) the Certified Cargo Security Program–K9, applicable to canine team providers; and (3) the 3PK9–C Certifier Order, applicable to third-party certifiers. The following are required to maintain the CCSP: CCSF applications, 3KP9 certifier applications, STA 1 See 49 CFR 1544.205(g) and 1546.205(g)(1).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Information Collection Revision would amend the Form I–829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status to clarify who may file the petition in different situations. Background On January 13, 2017, DHS published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), EB–5 Immigrant Investor Program Modernization. See 82 FR 4738 (Jan. 13, 2017). The NPRM sought to ‘‘clarify the process by which an immigrant investor’s spouse and children file separate Form I–829 petitions when they are not included in the Form I–829 filed by the immigrant investor. Generally, an immigrant investor’s derivatives should be included in the principal immigrant investor’s Form I–829 petition. See [prior] 8 CFR 216.6(a)(1). However, there are situations in which derivatives may not be included on the principal immigrant investor’s Form I–829 petition . . . In such circumstances, if the immigrant investor would have otherwise been eligible to have his or her conditions on status removed, then the derivatives would remain eligible to remove the conditions on their status even if the immigrant investor cannot or will not file a Form I–829 petition.’’ 82 FR at 4750. The NPRM continued, ‘‘DHS also clarifies, however, that consistent with current practice, each derivative must file a separate Form I–829 petition in all other situations in which the investor’s spouse and children are not included in the investor’s Form I–829 petition. See id.’’ 82 FR at 4750. On July 24, 2019, DHS published a Final Rule, EB–5 Immigrant Investor E:\FR\FM\13MYN1.SGM 13MYN1

located in the United States. For purposes of this document, CCSFs 
refers to both facility-based CCSFs and CCSF-K9s.
    Abstract: TSA is seeking continued approval from OMB for the 
collection of information contained in the ICR. Section 1602 of the 
Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Public 
Law 110-53 (121 Stat. 266, Aug. 3, 2007) (9/11 Act) required the 
development of a system to screen 100 percent of such cargo no later 
than August 2010. TSA currently requires 100 percent screening of all 
cargo transported on passenger aircraft.\1\ The screening of air cargo 
must be in a manner approved by TSA and be commensurate with the level 
of security for the screening of passenger checked baggage.\2\

    \2\ Id. See also 49 U.S.C. 44901(g)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    TSA's regulations in 49 CFR part 1549 for the Certified Cargo 
Screening Program (CCSP) support the 9/11 Act mandate by providing an 
alternative means of compliance with the 100 percent screening 
requirement. In order to comply with the statutory mandate, the CCSP 
allows shippers, indirect air carriers, and other entities to 
voluntarily participate in a program through which TSA certifies 
entities to screen air cargo off-airport before it is tendered to air 
carriers for transport on passenger aircraft. CCSFs may screen cargo 
off-airport and must implement measures to ensure a secure chain of 
custody from the point of screening to the point at which the cargo is 
tendered to the aircraft operator. In addition, TSA developed a program 
to certify 3PK9-C Teams to screen air cargo.\3\ TSA incorporated this 
capability under the framework of the CCSP, providing an opportunity 
for canine team providers to choose to be regulated as CCSFs under 49 
CFR part 1549 and approved to use Certified 3PK9-C Teams to screen 
cargo for TSA regulated entities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See sec. 1941 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2019, 
Division K, Title I (Pub. L. 115-254; 132 Stat. 3186; Oct. 5, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    TSA's three primary programs issued under 49 CFR part 1549 provides 
standards for compliance for those entities subject to the program's 
requirements: (1) The Certified Cargo Screening Security Program, 
applicable to facilities-based CCSFs; (2) the Certified Cargo Security 
Program-K9, applicable to canine team providers; and (3) the 3PK9-C 
Certifier Order, applicable to third-party certifiers.
    The following are required to maintain the CCSP: CCSF applications, 
3KP9 certifier applications, STA applications, criminal history records 
check, recordkeeping requirements, security program information, 3PK9-C 
Certifier Order, significant security concerns information, and 
security coordinator information.
    Total Estimated Number of Respondent: 2,527.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 16,041 hours annually.\4\

    \4\ The annual burden number has been updated since the 
submission of the 60-day notice, which reported, 16,189.98.
