7/19/2017: Information collection request to Office of Management and Budget – International Ice Patrol customer survey

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 for the U.S. Coast Guard International Ice Patrol (IIP) Customer Survey without change.

This information collection provides feedback on the processes of delivery and products distributed to the mariner by the International Ice Patrol.

In accordance with Executive Order 12862, the U.S. Coast Guard is directed to conduct surveys (both qualitative and quantitative) to determine the kind and quality of services our customers want and expect, as well as their satisfaction with our existing services. This survey will be limited to data collections that solicit strictly voluntary opinions and will not collect information that is required or regulated.

In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments from owners and operators of vessels transiting the North Atlantic. Comments must reach the Coast Guard on or before August 18, 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.
