Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision and Extension of a Currently-Approved Information Collection Request: Hazardous Materials Safety Permits

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. The FMCSA requests approval to revise and extend an existing ICR titled, ``Hazardous Materials Safety Permits.'' This ICR requires companies holding permits to develop and implement communications plans that allow for the periodic tracking of the shipments. A record of the communications that includes the name of the driver, identification of the vehicle, permitted material(s) being transported, and the date, time and location of each contact may be kept by either the driver (e.g., recorded in the log book) or the company. These records must be kept, either physically or electronically, for at least six months at the company's principal place of business or readily available to the employees at the company's principal place of business. This ICR is being revised only to the extent that the number of motor carriers with an active Hazardous Materials (HM) Safety Permit has decreased from 1,304 to 987.
