aviation regulations. Because of this
change, and to add clarity, we are using
the name of the FAA form 8420–8,
Application for Pilot School
Certification. Pilot schools are mandated
to report information to the FAA and to
keep specific records. Pilot schools train
private, commercial, flight instructor,
and airline transport pilots, along with
training for associated ratings in various
types of aircraft. The FAA form 8240–
8 is necessary to assure continuing
compliance with part 141, renewal of
pilot school certificates every 24
months, and for any amendments to
pilot school certificates.
The FAA is also making a burden
adjustment to the number of pilot
schools. Currently, this number is 527.
We estimate 31 new applications for an
original certification annually from
applicants for a pilot school certificate.
We estimate 263 applications for
renewal annually. This figure represents
approximately half of the current 527
certificated pilot schools.
Respondents: Respondents include
new applications, renewals of the pilot
school certification, and amendments to
an existing pilot school.
Frequency: Every 24 months
certificated pilot schools must renew
their pilot school certification.
Estimated Average Burden per
Response: We anticipate 31 new
applications at a rate of 0.5 hours for a
total of 15.5 hours. We also anticipate
263 applications for renewals at a rate
of 0.5 hours for a total of 131.5 hours.
Additionally, we estimate 20
applications for an amendment to their
pilot school certificate at a rate of 0.5
hours for a total burden of 10.0 hours.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: We
anticipate a total annual burden of
27,740 hours.

Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Vendor
Registration.
OMB Control Number: 2126–0062.
Type of Request: Renewal of a
currently approved information
collection.
Respondents: ELD vendors.
Estimated Number of Respondents:
75.
Estimated Time per Response: 15
minutes.
Expiration Date: March 31, 2022.
Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 150

minutes per response].
Background
49 CFR part 395, subpart B establishes
minimum performance and design
standards for hours-of-service (HOS)
ELDs; requirements for the mandatory
use of these devices by drivers currently
required to prepare HOS records of duty
status (RODS); requirements concerning
HOS supporting documents; and
measures to address concerns about
harassment resulting from the
mandatory use of ELDs.
To ensure consistency among ELD
vendors and devices, detailed functional
specifications were published as part of
the December 2015 final rule (Dec. 16,
2015, 80 FR 78292). Each ELD vendor
developing an ELD technology must
register online at a secure FMCSA
website where the ELD provider can
securely certify that its ELD is
compliant with the functional
specifications. Each ELD vendor must
certify that each ELD model and version
has been sufficiently tested to meet the
functional requirements in the rule
under the conditions in which the ELD
would be used.
ELD vendors must self-certify and
register their devices with FMCSA
online via Form MCSA–5893,
‘‘Electronic Logging Device (ELD)
Vendor Registration and Certification.’’
FMCSA expects 100% of respondents to
submit their information electronically.
Once completed, FMCSA issues a
unique identification number that the
ELD vendor will embed in their
device(s). FMCSA maintains a list on its
website of the current ELD vendors and
devices that have been certified (by the
vendors) to meet the functional
specifications. The information is
necessary for fleets and drivers to easily
find a compliant ELD for their use in
complying with the FMCSA regulation
requiring the use of ELDs.
On October 14, 2021, FMCSA
published a notice in the Federal
Register with a 60-day public comment
period to announce this request to
renew the information collection (86 FR
57249). The Agency received no
comments in response to the notice.
Public Comments Invited: You are
asked to comment on any aspect of this
information collection, including: (1)
Whether the proposed collection is
necessary for FMCSA to perform its
functions; (2) the accuracy of the
estimated burden; (3) ways for FMCSA
to enhance the quality, usefulness, and
clarity of the collected information; and
(4) ways that the burden could be
minimized without reducing the quality
of the collected information.
Issued under the authority delegated in 49
CFR 1.87.

Associate Administrator for Research,
Technology and Registration.
