Applicants may also call a FEMA National Processing Service Center (NPSC) representative to access their information by providing their registration ID, full name, damaged dwelling address, current mailing address (if different), current phone number, and the last four digits of their Social Security number. In addition, individuals seeking access to and notification of any record contained in this system of records, or seeking to contest its content, may submit a request in writing to the Chief Privacy Officer and the FEMA Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Officer, whose contact information can be found at https://www.dhs.gov/foia under ‘‘Contact Information.’’ If an individual believes more than one component maintains Privacy Act records concerning him or her, the individual may submit the request to the Chief Privacy Officer and Chief Freedom of Information Act Officer, Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC 20528–0655. Even if neither the Privacy Act nor the Judicial Redress Act provide a right of access, certain records may be available under the Freedom of Information Act. When an individual is seeking records about himself or herself from this system of records or any other FEMA system of records, the individual’s request must conform with the Privacy Act regulations set forth in 6 CFR part 5. The individual must first verify his or her identity, meaning that the individual must provide his or her full name, current address, and date and place of birth. The individual must sign the request, and the individual’s signature must either be notarized or submitted under 28 U.S.C. 1746, a law that permits statements to be made under penalty of perjury as a substitute for notarization. In addition, the individual should: • Explain why he or she believes the Department would have the information being requested; • Identify which component(s) of the Department he or she believes may have the information; • Specify when he or she believes the records would have been created; and • Provide any other information that will help the DHS staff determine which DHS component agency may have responsive records; VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:38 Feb 09, 2022 Jkt 256001 If the request is seeking records pertaining to another living individual, the request must include an authorization from the individual whose record is being requested, authorizing the release to the requester. Without the above information, the Component(s) may not be able to conduct an effective search, and your request may be denied due to lack of specificity or lack of compliance with applicable regulations. For records covered by the Privacy Act or covered Judicial Redress Act records, individuals may make a request for amendment or correction of a record of the Department about the individual by writing directly to the Department component that maintains the record, unless the record is not subject to amendment or correction. The request should identify each particular record in question, state the amendment or correction desired, and state why the individual believes that the record is not accurate, relevant, timely, or complete. The individual may submit any documentation that would be helpful. If the individual believes that the same record is in more than one system of records, the request should state that and be addressed to each component that maintains a system of records containing the record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES: BILLING CODE 9110–17–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be available at https://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who E:\FR\FM\10FEN1.SGM 10FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 28 / Thursday, February 10, 2022 / Notices jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement TSA has broad statutory authority to assess a security risk for any mode of transportation, develop security measures for dealing with that risk, and enforce compliance with those measures.1 TSA’s mission includes the screening of individuals, accessible property, checked baggage, and cargo before boarding or loading on an aircraft to prevent or deter the carriage of any explosive, incendiary, or deadly or dangerous weapon on an aircraft. Under 49 CFR 1540.107, individuals are required to submit to screening and inspection before entering a sterile area of an airport or boarding an aircraft. The prohibition on carrying a weapon, however, does not apply to LEOs required to carry a firearm or other weapons while in the performance of law enforcement duties at the airport. See 49 CFR 1540.111(b). In addition, LEOs may fly armed if they meet the requirements of 49 CFR 1544.219. This section includes requirements for being a Federal, municipal, county, or state law enforcement officer; authorization to carry the weapon; training for flying armed; validation of the need for the weapon to be accessible aboard the aircraft; and notification requirements. This section also discusses prohibitions related to alcoholic beverage consumption, and the appropriate location of the weapon while aboard the aircraft. TSA has established a specialized screening process for state, local, and tribal LEOs when they are flying armed and need to go through screening at the checkpoint. When this situation occurs, LEOs are required to complete TSA Form 413A, Checkpoint Sign-In Log. The information collected on TSA Form 413A includes identifying information for the LEOs; an affirmation that they are authorized to fly armed on official business and that they have an operational need to have their weapon accessible during the flight in accordance with 49 CFR part 1544; and identification of weapons they are carrying. TSA is revising the information collection by amending the identification of weapons section of the form, removing the language ‘‘CBP only.’’ TSA inadvertently included the limitation language ‘‘CBP only’’ in reference to LEOs carrying knives. 1 See 49 U.S.C. 114. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Feb 09, 2022 Jkt 256001 However, there is no restriction as all LEOs may carry knives. The information required by the form is used by the TSA Security Operations Center and the Law Enforcement/ Federal Air Marshal Service in order to have situational awareness of armed LEOs presence on flights conducted by 49 CFR parts 1544 and/or 1546 regulated parties (aircraft operators and foreign air carriers). This real-time situational awareness is necessary in the event of an emergency on board the aircraft; such as but not limited to, a disruptive passenger, air piracy, or other threat to the safety and security of a commercial aircraft. Respondents to this collection are state, local, and tribal police officers travelling with their weapons. TSA uses historical data to estimate 68,000 average annual responses. Each check-in requires filling out a log book and TSA estimates this activity requires one minute (0.016667 hours) to complete. TSA estimates this collection will place an annual average hour burden of 1,133 hours on the public. Dated: February 7, 2022. Christina A.

Information Collection Requirement

    TSA has broad statutory authority to assess a security risk for any 
mode of transportation, develop security measures for dealing with that 
risk, and enforce compliance with those measures.\1\

of law enforcement duties at the airport. See 49 CFR 1540.111(b). In

the weapon to be accessible aboard the aircraft; and notification 
requirements. This section also discusses prohibitions related to

Operations Center and the Law Enforcement/Federal Air Marshal Service
