Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Critical Facility Information of the Top 100 Most Critical 
Pipelines.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0050.
    Forms(s): Critical Facility Security Review; TSA Pipeline 
Cybersecurity Self-Assessment form.
    Affected Public: Pipeline companies.
    Abstract: The 9/11 Act specifically tasked TSA to develop and 
implement a plan for reviewing the pipeline security plans and 
inspecting critical facilities of the 100 most critical pipeline

266, 475, Aug. 3, 2007; codified at 6 U.S.C. 1207(b)). TSA visits 
critical pipeline facilities and collects site-specific information

physical security measures. TSA uses the information to determine 
strengths and weaknesses at the nation's critical pipeline facilities, 
areas to target for risk reduction strategies, pipeline industry 
implementation of the TSA Pipeline Security Guidelines, and operator 
implementation of recommendations made during TSA critical facility 
visits.
    The collection of information is being revised to align the 
Critical Facility Security Review question set with the revised 
Pipeline Security Guidelines (with Change 1 (April 2021)), and to 
capture additional criticality criteria. In addition, on May 26, 2021, 
OMB approved the emergency request, requiring owner/operators of a 
critical hazardous liquid and natural gas pipeline or liquefied natural 
gas facility to review Section 7 of TSA's Pipeline Security Guidelines 
(with Change 1 (April 2021)), and assess current activities, using the 
TSA Pipeline Cybersecurity Self-Assessment form, to address cyber risk, 
and identify remediation measures that will be taken to fill those gaps 
and a timeframe for achieving those measures.
    Number of Respondents: 260.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 1400 hours annually.\1\
