12/27/2016: Collection of information under review by Office of Management and Budget – Labeling required in CFR

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 comments on an extension of its approval for the collection of information regarding labeling required in 33 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Parts 181 and 183 and 46 CFR 25.10-3.

Parts 181 and 183 of Title 33 Code of Federal Regulations and 46 CFR 25.10-3 contain the regulations and safety standards authorized by the statutes which apply to manufacturers of recreational boats, un-inspected commercial vessels and associated equipment. The regulations and safety standards contain information collections, which require boat and associated equipment manufacturers, importers and the boating public to apply for serial numbers and to display various labels evidencing compliance: Hull Identification Numbers; U.S. Coast Guard Maximum Capacities Label; Gasoline Fuel Tank Label; Coast Guard Type Fuel Hose Label; and Certified Navigation Light Label. Title 46 U.S.C. 4302(a)(3) gives the Coast Guard the authority to require the display of seals, labels, plates, insignia, or other devices for certifying or evidencing compliance with safety regulations and standards of the United States Government for recreational vessels and associated equipment.

In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments from manufacturers of boats, fuel tanks, fuel hoses and navigation lights. Comments must reach the Coast Guard on or before January 26, 2017.

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.
