Notice of Request for Information (RFI): Revision of an Information Collection: Hazardous Materials Safety Permits (Formerly Hazardous Materials Permit)
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 and invites public comment. The FMCSA invites comments on its plan to request OMB approval to revise an existing information collection entitled ``Hazardous Materials (HM) Safety Permits'', OMB Control Number 2126-0030. FMCSA requires companies holding permits to develop a communications plan that allows for the periodic tracking of the shipment. A record of the communications may be kept by either the driver (e.g., recorded in the log book) or the company that contains the time of the call and location of the shipment. These records must be kept, either physically or electronically, for at least six months at the company's principal place of business or readily available to employees at the company's principal place of business.
Notice of Request for Information (RFI): Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Risk Factor Study
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. This information collection is associated with the agency's study by a research contractor which will investigate commercial motor vehicle driver risk factors. This information collection will aid FMCSA in developing future safety initiatives by examining a wide array of driver and situational factors to determine if they are associated with increased or decreased crash and incident involvement. On March 23, 2007 FMCSA published a Federal Register notice allowing for a 60-day comment period on the ICR. Two comments were received regarding the utility of the survey. These comments will be considered during the information collection activities for the study.
