SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: The FMCSA is authorized to register certain for-hire 
Mexico-domiciled long-haul motor carriers of regulated commodities 
under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 13902 and the North American Free 
Trade Agreement (NAFTA) motor carrier access provision. The Form OP-
1(MX) is used by FMCSA to register those Mexico-domiciled motor 
carriers. It requests information on the applicant's identity, 
location, familiarity with safety requirements, and type of proposed 
operations. This ICR is being revised due to a Final Rule titled, ``the 
Unified Registration System,'' (78 FR 52608), dated August 23, 2013, 
that will incorporate all registration form requirements included in 
this ICR, except the Form OP-1(MX), into the Form MCSA-1 in the OMB 
Control Number 2126-0051, ``FMCSA Registration/Updates,'' ICR effective 
October 23, 2015. The Form OP-1(MX) was excluded from the Form MCSA-1 
because its information collection requirements are beyond the scope of 
the Unified Registration System Final Rule.
    Title: Licensing Applications for Motor Carrier Operating 
Authority.
    OMB Control Number: 2126-0016.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently-approved information 
collection.
    Respondents: Certain Mexico-domiciled motor carriers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 12.
    Estimated Time per Response: 4 hours to complete Form OP-1 (MX).
    Expiration Date: October 31, 2015.
    Frequency of Response: Other (as needed).
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 48 hours [12 annual Form OP-(MX) 
responses x 4 hours to complete each response = 48].
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the performance of FMCSA's functions; (2) 
the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FMCSA to enhance 
the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and 
(4) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the 
quality of the information

collected. The Agency will summarize or include your comments in the 
request for OMB's clearance of this ICR.

    Issued under the authority of 49 CFR 1.87 on: March 26, 2015.

Associate Administrator for Office of Research and Information 
Technology and Chief Information Officer.
