Type: Notice

Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. FMCSA requests approval to extend an ICR titled, ``Request Extension for Revocation of Authority Granted.'' This information collection supports the DOT strategic goal of safety by enabling registrants to voluntarily request revocation of operating authority, or some part of that authority. A completed Form OCE-46 is filed with FMCSA by the registrant for requesting that all, or a part, of its operating authority be revoked. The information contained on the form is used by FMCSA in deciding on the revocation request. The use of Form OCE-46 has proven to be an easy and effective means by which a registrant can request revocation of its operating authority. No comments were received in response to the 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on March 22, 2017 (82 FR 14792).
