8/3/2017: Information collection request to Office of Management and Budget – Application for vessel inspection, waiver, and continuous synopsis record

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 Application for Vessel Inspection, Waiver, and Continuous Synopsis Record without change.

The collection of information requires the owner, operator, agent, or master of a vessel to apply in writing to the Coast Guard before the commencement of an inspection for certification, when a waiver is desired from the requirements of navigation and vessel inspection, or to request a Continuous Synopsis Record.

Title 46 U.S. Code 3306 authorizes the Coast Guard to establish regulations to protect life, property, and the environment. The reporting requirements are part of the Coast Guard’s Marine Safety Program.

In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments from vessel owners, operators, agents, masters or interested U.S. Government agency. Comments must be received by Oct. 2, 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.
