Notice of Intent to Request Renewal From the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) of Two Current Public Collections of Information
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, (44 U.S.C. 3501et 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. Therefore, in preparation for submission to renew clearance of the following information collections, TSA solicits comments in order 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 are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
1.2110-0005; Indirect Air Carrier Security.Section 44903(b) of Title 49 U.S.C. directed the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to prescribe regulations (14 CFR part 109), to protect passengers and property on an aircraft operating in air transportation or intrastate air transportation against acts of criminal violence and aircraft piracy, and the public interest in the promotion of air transportation and intrastate air transportation. On November 19, 2001, the Aviation andTransportation Security Act, Public Law 107-71, transferred this responsibility to TSA. These standards were developed and implemented in 49 CFR part 1548. With the transfer of these responsibilities to TSA, the corresponding collection of information was also transferred from FAA to TSA. The previous OMB clearance number for FAA was OMB 2120-0505. The TSA number is now OMB 2110-0005. The current estimated annual reporting burden is 664 hours.
