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 (Secretary) to promulgate regulations
governing the registration of for-hire motor carriers of regulated
commodities (49 U.S.C. 13902), surface transportation 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. Under 49 U.S.C. 13905, each registration is
effective from the date specified and remains in effect for such period
as the Secretary determines appropriate by regulation. Section 13905(c)
grants the Secretary the authority to amend or revoke a registration at
the registrant's request. On complaint or on the Secretary's own
initiative, the Secretary may also suspend, amend, or revoke any part
of the registration of a motor carrier, broker, or freight forwarder
for willful failure to comply with the regulations, an order of the
Secretary, or a condition of its registration. Form OCE-46 is used by
transportation entities to voluntarily apply for revocation of their
registration authority in whole or in part. The form requests the
registrant's docket number, name and address, and the reasons for the
Respondents: Motor carriers, freight forwarders, and brokers.
Average Burden per Response: 15 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 250 hours (1,000 motor carriers x 15
