Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision of an Approved 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. This information collection concerns the requirement that companies holding permits for transporting certain hazardous materials 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. On July 20, 2007, FMCSA published a Federal Register notice allowing for a 60-day comment period on the ICR. One comment was received.
