Information Collection Being Reviewed by the Federal
Communications Commission Under Delegated Authority
AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.
ACTION: Notice and request for comments.
SUMMARY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens,
and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC or the Commission) invites the
general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to
comment on the following information collection. Comments are requested
concerning: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary
for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission,
including whether the information shall have practical utility; the
accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; ways to enhance the
quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to
minimize the burden of the collection of information on the
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or
other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the
information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer
than 25 employees. The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of
information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No
person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a
collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a
valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number.
DATES: Written PRA comments should be submitted on or before August 16,
2019. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find
it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice,
you should advise the contact listed below as soon as possible.

party disclosure requirements.
    Obligation to Respond: Mandatory. Statutory authority for this
information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 301, 302,
303(e), 303(f) and 303(r).
    Total Annual Burden: 200 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: No cost.

    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for
    Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this expiring
information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
after this 60 day comment period in order to obtain the three year
clearance. Section 15.240 requires each grantee of certification for
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Equipment to register the
location of the equipment/devices its markets with the Commission. The
information that the grantee must supply to the Commission when
registering the device(s) shall include the name, address and other
pertinent contact information of users, the geographic coordinates of
the operating location, and the FCC identification number(s) of the
equipment. The improved RFID equipment could benefit commercial
shippers and have significant homeland security benefits by enabling
the entire contents of shipping containers to be easily and immediately
identified, and by allowing a determination of whether tampering with
their contents has occurred during shipping.
