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.

On July 22, 2011, FMCSA published a Federal Register notice allowing for a 60-day comment period on the ICR. No comments were received.
