Information Collection Request

Title: Maritime Transportation System Recovery Essential Elements of Information.

OMB Control Number: 1625--New.

Summary: This collection captures data on facilities, vessels, and shared transportation infrastructure prior to a port disruption to be able to characterize the port in its normal fully functioning condition.

Need: 33 U.S.C. 1225, 46 U.S.C. 70103, and 50 U.S.C. 191 require the U.S. Coast Guard to take action to prevent damage to, or the destruction of, bridges, other structures, on or in navigable waters or shore area adjacent; to minimize damage from and respond to a transportation security incident; and to safeguard against destruction of vessels, harbors, ports and waterfront facilities in the United States and all territorial waters during a national emergency. To be prepared to execute these responsibilities, the U.S. Coast Guard needs to establish the normal fully functioning condition of a port prior to a port disruption. Then, following a port disruption, the U.S. Coast Guard may be able to compare the normal port condition to the disrupted port condition, enabling the Marine Transportation System Recovery Unit (MTSRU) to assist in prioritizing recovery efforts, and gauge the effectiveness of the response.

Forms: CG-11410, Marine Transportation System Recovery Essential Elements of Information and CG-11410A, Marine Transportation System Recovery Facility Status.

Respondents: Owners or operators of United States waterfront facilities.

Frequency: On occasion.

Hour Burden Estimate: This is a new information collection. The estimated burden is 2,250 hours a year.

Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended.

Dated: February 6, 2017.

Thomas P. Michelli,

U.S. Coast Guard, Chief Information Officer.
