Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 

3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 

not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 

displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 

at www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 

approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 

comments to--

    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 

necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 

including whether the information will have practical utility;

    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;

    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 

be collected; and

    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 

who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 

mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 

of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Highway Corporate Security Review.

    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.

    OMB Control Number: 1652-0036.

    Forms(s): TSA Form 1603 Highway Motor Carrier Security Review Form.

    Affected Public: Owners and operators of school bus, motor coach, 

and general freight trucking companies, privately owned assets, State

headquarters of the subject surface transportation owners/operators. 

During the site visit, TSA personnel complete the CSR form, which asks 

security-related questions. This assessment is necessary for TSA to 

establish the current state of security practices for highway modes of 

transportation. TSA will then be able to make policy and programmatic 

decisions to improve the overall security posture within the surface 

transportation community. The data collected also can be utilized to 

develop security practice assessments and issue security guidelines, 

best practices, and lessons learned for the stakeholder community.

    Number of Respondents: 100.

    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 300 hours annually.

    Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on June 30, 2011.
