3/9/2015: Information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget – Adequacy certification for reception facilities and advance notice

As a courtesy to our audience, Maritime Commons will provide a daily compilation of nationally-relevant Federal Register Notices. To provide comments for the public record, follow the Federal Register link for each individual notice. Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.

The Coast Guard seeks comment on the approval of a revision of a currently approved collection for adequacy certification for reception facilities and advance notice.

This information helps ensure that waterfront facilities are in compliance with reception facility standards. Advance notice information from vessels ensures effective management of reception facilities.

The Coast Guard needs comments from owners and operators of reception facilities and owners and operators of vessels.

View the Federal Register notice for full details.

In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments addressing:

(1) The practical utility of the Collections;
(2) The accuracy of the estimated burden of the Collections;
(3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of information subject to the Collections;
(4) Ways to minimize the burden of the Collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

All comments and related material must be submitted on or before May 8, 2015.
