SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks continued PRA authorization
for the Crawler, Locomotive, and Truck Cranes Standard information
collection requirements. The Standard requires performance of a monthly
inspection on cranes and running ropes and preparation of a
certification record for each inspection. A rope that has been idle for
a month or more must undergo a thorough inspection and a certification
record must be generated. Occupational Safety and Health Act sections
6(b)(7), 29 U.S.C. 655(b)(7), and 8(c), 29 U.S.C. 657(c), authorize
this information collection.
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 December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years,
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL also 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 June 5, 2013, (78 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 30 days of publication of this notice in
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0221.
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.
