SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for
the Derricks Standard information collection. The paperwork provisions
of the Standard specify requirements for marking the rated load on
derricks, preparing certification records to verify the inspection of
derrick ropes, and posting warning signs while the derrick is
undergoing adjustments and repairs. Certification records must be
maintained and disclosed upon request. The Occupational Health and
Safety Act of 1970 authorizes this information collection. See 29
U.S.C. 651, 29 U.S.C. 655, and 29 U.S.C. 657.
This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and
the public is generally not required to respond to an information
collection, unless it is
approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB
Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of
law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to
comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid
Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB
approval for this information collection under Control Number 1218-
OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3)
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is
scheduled to expire on January 31, 2020. The DOL seeks to extend PRA
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years,
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related
notice published in the Federal Register on October 1, 2019 (84 FR
Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB,
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in
the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this
notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0222.
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency,
including whether the information will have practical utility;
Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and
Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting
electronic submission of responses.
