Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision of a 
Currently-Approved Information Collection: Licensing Applications for 
Motor Carrier Operating Authority

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA 
announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) 
described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for its 
review and approval. The FMCSA seeks approval to revise an ICR titled, 
``Licensing Applications for Motor Carrier Operating Authority,'' that 
is used by for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities, motor 
passenger carriers, freight forwarders, property brokers, and certain 
Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to register their operations with the 
FMCSA. On April 3, 2015, FMCSA published a Federal Register notice 
allowing for a 60-day comment period on this ICR. The agency received 
no comments in response to that notice.

DATES: Please send your comments to this notice by July 27, 2015. OMB 
must receive your comments by this date to act quickly on the ICR.

ADDRESSES: All comments should reference Federal Docket Management 
System (FDMS) Docket Number FMCSA-2015-0083. Interested persons are 
invited to submit written comments on the proposed information 
collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office 
of Management and Budget. Comments should be addressed to the attention 
of the Desk Officer, Department of Transportation/Federal Motor Carrier 
Safety Administration, and sent via electronic mail to 
oira_submission@omb.eop.gov, faxed to (202) 395-6974, or mailed to the 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and 
Budget, Docket Library, Room 10102, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 
20503.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Vivian Oliver, Transportation 
Specialist, Office of Information Technology, Information Technology 
Operations Division, Department of Transportation, Federal Motor 
Carrier Safety Administration, 6th Floor, West Building, 1200 New 
Jersey Ave. SE., Washington DC 20590, Telephone Number (202) 366-2974; 
Email Address vivian.oliver@dot.gov. Office hours are from 9:00 a.m. to

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    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.

    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, 
``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.
    Public Comments Invited:
    FMCSA requests that you comment on any aspect of this information 
collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary 
for FMCSA to perform its 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 collected 
information. The agency will summarize or include your comments in the 
request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.

    Issued under the authority delegated in 49 CFR 1.87 on: June 19, 
2015.
G. Kelly Regal,
Associate Administrator, Office of Research and Information Technology.
