                Public Participation and Request for Comments
                 This notice relies on the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act
                of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., chapter 35, as amended. An ICR is an
                application to OIRA seeking the approval, extension, or renewal of a
                Coast Guard collection of information (Collection). The ICR contains
                information describing the Collection's purpose, the Collection's
                likely burden on the affected public, an explanation of the necessity
                of the Collection, and other important information describing the
                Collection. There is one ICR for each Collection.
                 The Coast Guard invites comments on whether this ICR should be
                granted based on the Collection being necessary for the proper
                performance of Departmental functions. In particular, the Coast Guard
                would appreciate comments addressing: (1) The practical utility of the
                Collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the Collection;
                (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of information
                subject to the Collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the
                Collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection
                techniques or other forms of information technology.
                 In response to your comments, we may revise this ICR or decide not
                to seek an extension of approval for the Collection. We will consider
                all comments and material received during the comment period.
                 We encourage you to respond to this request by submitting comments
                and related materials. Comments must contain the OMB Control Number of
                the ICR and the docket number of this request, [USCG-2022-0151], and

                Information Collection Request
                 Title: Report of Oil or Hazardous Substance Discharge; and Report
                of Suspicious Maritime Activity.
                 OMB Control Number: 1625-0096.
                 Summary: Any discharge of oil or a hazardous substance must be
                reported to the National Response Center (NRC) so that the pre-
                designated on-scene coordinator can be informed and appropriate spill
                mitigation action carried out. The NRC also receives suspicious
                activity reports from the public and disseminates this information to
                appropriate entities.
                 Need: 33 CFR 153.203, 40 CFR 263.30 and 264.56, and 49 CFR 171.15
                mandate that the NRC be the central place for the public to report all
                pollution spills. 33
                [[Page 13741]]
                CFR 101.305 mandates that owners or operators of those vessels or
                facilities required to have security plans, report activities that may
                result in a Transportation Security Incident (TSI) or breaches of
                security to the NRC. Voluntary reports are also accepted.
                 Forms: None.
                 Respondents: Persons-in-charge of a vessel or onshore/offshore
                facility; owners or operators of vessels or facilities required to have
                security plans; and the public.
                 Frequency: On occasion.
                 Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden has increased from 1,980
                hours to 3,683 hours a year, due primarily to an increase in the
                estimated hour burden per response. The Coast Guard revised the hour
                burden per response from 5 minutes to 8.5 minutes per response. Based
                on recent NRC data, the change more accurately reflect the time per
                 Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. chapter
                35, as amended.
                 Dated: March 4, 2022.

                Chief, Office of Privacy Management, U.S. Coast Guard.
