AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA),
Department of Labor.

ACTION: Final rule; announcement of the Office of Management and Budget

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

SUMMARY: OSHA is announcing that the collections of information
contained in the Fire Protection in Shipyard Employment Standard (29
CFR part 1915, subpart P) have been approved by OMB under the Paperwork
Reduction Act of 1995. The OMB approval number is 1218-0248.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Todd Owen, OSHA, Directorate of
Standards and Guidance, Room N3609, U.S. Department of Labor, 200
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA published a final rule for Fire
Protection in Shipyard Employment on September 15, 2004, at 69 FR 55668
to provide increased protection for shipyard employment workers from
the hazards of fire on vessels and vessel sections and at related land-
side facilities. The final rule became effective on December 14, 2004.
As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Federal
Register notice for the final rule stated that compliance with the
collection of information requirements was not required until those
collections of information had been approved by OMB and until the
Department of Labor published a notice in the Federal Register
announcing the OMB control number assigned by OMB. Under 5 CFR
1320.5(b), an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of
information unless: (1) The collection of information displays a
currently valid OMB control number; and (2) the agency informs the
potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information
that such persons are not required to respond to the collection of
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
    On September 19, 2004, the Agency submitted the Fire Protection in
Shipyard Employment (29 CFR part 1915, subpart P) information
collection request to OMB for approval in accordance with the Paperwork
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). On November 30, 2004, OMB
approved the collections of information and assigned OMB Control Number
1218-0248. The approval for the collection expires on November 30,
2007. The approved collections of information are:
