Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision 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 review and approval. The FMCSA requests approval to revise and extend an ICR entitled, ``Hazardous Materials Safety Permits.'' This ICR requires companies holding permits to develop communications plans that allow for the periodic tracking of the shipments. A record of the communications that includes the time of the call and location of the shipment may be kept by either the driver (e.g., recorded in the log book) or the company. The motor carrier or driver must maintain a record of the communications for at least six months after the initial acceptance of a shipment of hazardous material for which a safety permit is required.
