the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of
information technology. OMB wants to receive comments within 30 days of

1. Title: Inspection, Repair and Maintenance.
OMB Number: 2126-0003.
Background: Motor carriers must maintain, or require maintenance
of, records documenting the inspection, repair and maintenance
activities performed on their owned and leased motor vehicles. There

representatives to verify motor carriers' compliance with the
inspection, repair and maintenance standards in part 396 of the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 35,107,856 hours.
2. Title: Request for Revocation of Authority Granted.
OMB Approval Number: 2126-0018.
Background: Title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) authorizes
the Secretary of Transportation to promulgate regulations governing the
registration of for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities (49
U.S.C. 13902), surface freight forwarders (49 U.S.C. 13903), and
property brokers (49 U.S.C. 13904). The FMCSA carries out this
registration program under authority delegated by the Secretary of
Transportation. Under Title 49 U.S.C. 13905, each registration is
the date specified and remains in effect for such period as the
Secretary of Transportation determines appropriate by regulation. Title
49 U.S.C. 13905(c) grants the Secretary the authority to amend or
revoke a registration at the registrant's request. Form OCE-46 is used
by transportation entities to voluntarily apply for revocation of their
registration in whole or in part. The form requests the registrant's
docket number, name and address, and the reasons for the revocation

Motor Carriers and Foreign Motor Private Carriers Under 49 U.S.C.
OMB Approval Number: 2126-0019.

procedures for registering foreign motor carriers to operate across the
border into the United States. Title 49 CFR 368 sets forth related
regulations. The FMCSA carries out this registration program under
authority delegated by the Secretary of Transportation. Foreign motor
carriers use Form OP-2 to apply for registration with the FMCSA. The

business, ownership and control, and proposed operations.
Respondents: Foreign motor carriers.
Average Burden per Response: 2 hours.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,000 hours (1,000 motor carriers
