Agency Information Collection Activities; Renewal of a Currently-Approved Information Collection Request: Unified Registration System, FMCSA Registration/Updates

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 approval to renew the ICR titled ``Unified Registration System, FMCSA Registration/Updates,'' OMB Control No. 2126-0051. This ICR applies to new registrants seeking initial operating authority from FMCSA. New registrants seeking operating authority must use online Form MCSA-1, accessible via the Unified Registration System (URS). FMCSA also seeks to declare an adjusted decrease in the estimate of response time and hence an adjusted decrease in the total burden hours calculated since the publication of the 60-day Federal Register (84 FR 48000) on September 11, 2019.
