The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the agency plans to submit three Information Collection Requests to the Office of Management and Budget for its review and approval:
• To revise and extend an ICR entitled “Accident Recordkeeping Requirements.” FMCSA says the information is necessary for the agency to assess the effectiveness of the safety management controls of motor carriers;
• To revise and extend an ICR entitled “Request for Revocation of Authority Granted” that notifies the agency of when a motor carrier, freight forwarder or property broker requests to amend or revoke its approved registration of authority; and
• To extend an existing ICR entitled “Transportation of Hazardous Materials, Highway Routing.” FMCSA says the information reported by states and Indian tribes is necessary to identify designated/restricted routes and restrictions or limitations affecting how motor carriers may transport certain hazardous materials on their highways, including dates that such routes were established and information on subsequent changes or new hazardous materials routing designations.
