Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision of a 
Currently-Approved Information Collection: Request for Revocation of 
Authority Granted

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

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), 
FMCSA announces its plan to submit to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) its request to revise a currently-approved information 
collection request (ICR) entitled, ``Request for Revocation of 
Authority Granted,'' covered by OMB Control Number 2126-0018. This ICR 
covers a voluntary request by a motor carrier, freight forwarder, or 
property broker to amend or revoke its FMCSA registration of authority 
granted. It is being revised due to an anticipated decrease in the 
estimated annual number of filings and costs to the respondents. FMCSA 
will seek OMB's review and approval of this revised ICR and invites 
public comment on this request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Request for Revocation of Authority Granted.
    OMB Approval Number: 2126-0018.
    Type of Request: To revise a currently-approved information 
collection.
    Form Number: OCE-46.
    Respondents: Motor carriers, freight forwarders and property 
brokers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,000.
    Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes.
    Expiration Date: May 31, 2014.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 750 hours [3,000 annual Form OCE-46 
filers x 15 minutes/60 minutes per filing = 750].
    Background: Title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) authorizes 
the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) to promulgate regulations 
governing the registration of for-hire motor carriers of regulated 
commodities (49 U.S.C. 13902), surface transportation freight 
forwarders (49 U.S.C. 13903), and property brokers (49 U.S.C. 13904). 
The FMCSA carries out this registration program under authority 
delegated by the Secretary (49 CFR 1.87). Under 49 U.S.C. 13905, each 
registration is effective from the date specified and remains in effect 
for such period as the Secretary determines appropriate by regulation. 
Section 13905(c) of title 49, U.S.C., grants the Secretary the 
authority to amend or revoke a registration at the registrant's 
request. On complaint, or on the Secretary's own initiative, the 
Secretary may also suspend, amend, or revoke any part of the 
registration of a motor carrier, broker, or freight forwarder for 
willful failure to comply with the regulations, an order of the 
Secretary, or a condition of its registration.
    Form OCE-46 is used by transportation entities to voluntarily apply 
for revocation of their registration authority in whole or in part. 
FMCSA uses the form to seek information concerning the registrant's 
docket number, name and address, and the reasons for the revocation 
request.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this revised information collection request, including: (1) The 
necessity and usefulness of the information collection for FMCSA to 
meet its goal in reducing truck crashes; (2) the accuracy of the 
estimated burdens; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and 
clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways to minimize the 
collection burden without reducing the quality of the collected 
information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in 
the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.

    Issued under the authority of 49 CFR 1.87 on: December 6, 2013
G. Kelly Leone,
Associate Administrator for Office of Research and Information 
Technology and Chief Information Officer.
