[Docket No. FMCSA-2018-0333]


Agency Information Collection Activities; Renewal of a Currently-
Approved Information Collection: Motor Carrier Identification Report

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 and invites public comment. FMCSA requests renewal 
of an ICR titled, ``Motor Carrier Identification Report,'' which is 
used to identify FMCSA regulated entities, help prioritize the agency's 
activities, aid in assessing the safety outcomes of those activities, 
and for statistical purposes. On April 26, 2016, OMB approved a 
revision to this collection. As a result of the revision, which is 
continued in this renewal, all entities needing to file registration 
and biennial update information to FMCSA will use Form MCS-150 or MCS-
150B to submit their information. Form MCS-150 or MCS-150B will also be 
used by a the small number of Mexico-domiciled carriers that seek 
authority to operate beyond the United States municipalities on the 
United States-Mexico border and their commercial zones. This ICR is 
necessary to ensure regulated entities are registered with the DOT.

DATES: Please send your comments by May 24, 2019. OMB must receive your 
comments by this date in order to act quickly on the ICR.

ADDRESSES: All comments should reference Federal Docket Management 
System (FDMS) Docket Number FMCSA-2018-0333. 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, or 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: Mr. Jeffrey Secrist, Office of 
Registration and Safety Information, Department of Transportation, 
FMCSA, West Building 6th Floor, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, 
DC 20590. Telephone: 202-385-2367; email Jeffrey.secrist@dot.gov. 
Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except 
Federal Holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Motor Carrier Identification Report.
    OMB Control Number: 2126-0013.
    Type of Request: Renewal of a currently-approved collection.
    Respondents: Motor carriers, freight forwarders, intermodal 
equipment providers, brokers, motor carriers with hazardous materials 
safety permit, cargo tank facilities and Mexican motor carriers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,602,511 respondents [1,596,121 
respondents for IC-1 + 3,811 respondents for IC-2 + 2,579 respondents 
for IC-3].
    Estimated Time per Response: 20 minutes for new filings and 7.5 
minutes for biennial updates and changes to complete the Form MCS-150.
    Expiration Date: April 30, 2019.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion and biennially.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 119,878 hours [119,071 hours for IC-
1 + 278 hours for IC-2 + 529 hours for IC-3].
    Background: Title 49, United States Code Section 504(b)(2) provides 
the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) with authority to require 
carriers, lessors, associations, or classes of these entities to file 
annual, periodic, and special reports containing answers to questions 
asked by the Secretary. The Secretary may also prescribe the form of 
records required to be prepared or compiled and the time period during 
which records must be preserved (See Sec.  504(b)(1) and (d)). FMCSA 
will use this data to administer its safety programs using a database 
of entities that are subject to its regulations. This database 
necessitates that these entities notify FMCSA of their existence. For 
example, under 49 CFR 390.19(a), FMCSA requires all motor carriers 
beginning operations to file a Form MCS-150 titled, ``Motor Carrier 
Identification Report,'' or MCS-150B titled, ``Combined Motor Carrier 
Identification Report and HM Permit Applications.'' This report is 
filed by all motor carriers conducting operations in interstate, 
intrastate transporting

hazardous materials or international commerce before beginning 
operations. It asks the respondent to provide the name of the business 
entity that owns and controls the motor carrier operation; address and 
telephone of principal place of business; assigned identification 
number(s), type of operation, types of cargo usually transported; 
number of vehicles owned, term leased and trip leased; driver 
information; and certification statement signed by an individual 
authorized to sign documents on behalf of the business entity.
    Existing applicants will use the MCS-150 or MCS-150B to update 
their information in the Motor Carrier Management Information System. 
Applicants filing for the first time will be required to file on-line. 
Form MCS-150 or MCS-150B will be used for Mexico-domiciled carriers 
that seek authority to operate beyond the United States municipalities 
on the United States-Mexico border and their commercial zones. The 
information collected from the respondents is readily available to the 
public. This ICR captures the burden of continued use of the MCS-150 or 
MCS-150B for motor carriers updating their registration information and 
for the registration of Mexico-domiciled carriers.

Summary of Changes

    The MCS-150 is being revised. The hazardous material declarations, 
Class 3A, Class 3B, and Div. 2.2 (Ammonia), are being removed from the 
form. They are obsolete and do not require new or existing applicants 
to identify those declarations when applying for a USDOT number as a 
hazardous materials motor carrier.
    The remaining hazardous materials entries on the forms and their 
respective instructions are being redesignated alphabetically to 
reflect the removal of the Class 3A, Class 3B, and Div. 2.2 (Ammonia) 
entries.
    In the Filing Options section of the instructions for the forms, 
the Agency name is corrected.
    In the hazardous materials list in the instructions for the forms, 
the entry for Combustible Liquid is revised to correct the 49 CFR 
reference.
    The instructions for the forms are being revised to clarify the 
definitions of ``Intrastate Hazardous Materials Carrier'' and 
``Intrastate Non-Hazardous Materials Carrier.''
    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 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.

    Issued under the authority delegated in 49 CFR 1.87.
G. Kelly Regal,
Associate Administrator for Office of Research and Information 
Technology.
