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. This ICR will enable 
FMCSA to document the burden associated with the marking regulations 
codified in 49 CFR 390.21, ``Marking of Self-Propelled CMVs and 
Intermodal Equipment.'' These regulations require marking of vehicles 
and intermodal equipment by motor carriers, freight forwarders and 
intermodal equipment providers (IEPs) engaging in interstate 
transportation. On April 11, 2013, FMCSA published a Federal Register 
notice (78 FR 21704) allowing for a 60-day comment period on this ICR. 
The FMCSA received no comments in response to this notice.

DATES: Please send your comments by September 3, 2013. OMB must receive 
your comments by this date in order to act on the ICR.

ADDRESSES: All comments should reference Federal Docket Management 
System (FDMS) Docket Number FMCSA-2013-0051. 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: Kenneth Rodgers, Chief, Commercial 
Enforcement and Investigations Division, Office of Enforcement and 
Compliance, U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Motor Carrier 
Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC, 
20590-0001. Telephone: 202-366-0073; Email: kenneth.rodgers@dot.gov. 
Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Marking of Self-Propelled CMVs and Intermodal Equipment
    OMB Control Number: 2126-XXXX.
    Type of Request: New information collection.
    Respondents: Freight carrying commercial motor carriers, passenger 
carrying commercial motor carriers, and intermodal equipment providers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 191,000.
    Estimated Time per Response: 26 minutes [12 minutes to affix DOT 
Number + 14 minutes for affixing a carrier's name = 26].
    Expiration Date: N/A. This is a new information collection.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 655,000 [620,000 hours for freight 
carrying commercial carriers + 26,000 hours for passenger carrying 
commercial motor carriers + 9,000 hours for intermodal equipment 
providers (IEPs) = 655,000].
    Background: The Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) is 
authorized to require marking of vehicles and intermodal equipment by 
motor carriers, freight forwarders and IEPs engaging in interstate 
transportation under 49 U.S.C. 31133(a)(8) and 49 U.S.C. 31133(a)(10). 
The Secretary has delegated authority pertaining to the marking of 
commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) pursuant to 49 CFR 1.87(f). The 
Agency's regulation governing the marking of CMVs is at 49 CFR 390.21.
    Vehicle marking requirements are intended to ensure that FMCSA, the 
National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and State safety officials 
are able to identify motor carriers and correctly assign responsibility 
for regulatory violations during inspections, investigations, 
compliance reviews, and crash studies. These marking requirements will 
also provide the public with beneficial information that could also 
assist in identifying carriers for the purposes of commerce, complaints 
or emergency notification. The marking requirements apply to motor 
carriers, freight forwarders and IEPs engaging in interstate 
transportation. The Agency does not require a specific method of 
marking as long as the marking complies with FMCSA's regulations.
    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 on: July, 24, 2013.

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