Notice and request for comments.
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 its review and approval and invites public comment. FMCSA requests renewal of an ICR titled, ``Motor Carrier Identification Report,'' which is used to identify FMCSA regulated entities, help prioritize the agency's activities, aid in assessing the safety outcomes of those activities, and for statistical purposes. On April 26, 2016, OMB approved a revision to this collection. As a result of the revision, which is continued in this renewal, all entities needing to file registration and biennial update information to FMCSA will use Form MCS-150 or MCS- 150B to submit their information. Form MCS-150 or MCS-150B will also be used by a the small number of Mexico-domiciled carriers that seek authority to operate beyond the United States municipalities on the United States-Mexico border and their commercial zones. This ICR is necessary to ensure regulated entities are registered with the DOT.
