Agency Information Activities; Clearance of a New Information Collection: Assessing the Effectiveness of the Arbitration Program as a Means of Settling Household Goods Disputes

Request for public comments and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval of a new information collection.

This notice seeks comments from the public regarding the need for FMCSA to collect information by using three new surveys to assess how household goods (HHGs) carriers and shippers (persons who arrange for the transportation of, or those who move, household goods) are satisfied with current arbitration dispute resolution procedures. The information collection (IC) meets the statutory requirements of the Interstate Commerce Commission Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA). This notice is published (pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995) to measure the need for the proposed information collection, to find ways to minimize the burden on household goods shippers and carriers, to find ways to enhance the quality of information collected, and to verify the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden (measured in work hours) on household goods shippers and carriers.
