                NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD
                [Docket No.: NTSB-2021-0010, OMB Control No. 3147-0028]
                Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request
                AGENCY: National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
                ACTION: 60-Day notice of information collection; request for comments.
                -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                SUMMARY: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the National
                Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) offers the public and Federal
                agencies the opportunity to comment regarding the NTSB's intent to
                submit an Information Collection Request (ICR) for an extension of a
                currently-approved information collection (IC) for Office of Management
                and Budget (OMB) Control No. 3147-0028. The OMB number, which is
                currently assigned to the NTSB's Request for a Medical Exception to the
                COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement form, was obtained through emergency
                clearance in November 2021 and will expire on May 31, 2022. This 60-Day
                Notice informs the public and Federal agencies that they may submit
                comments directly to the NTSB regarding this IC.
                DATES: Submit written comments regarding this proposed collection of
                information by February 15, 2022.

                0007. For a copy of the proposed medical exception form, email
                [email protected] and include ``NTSB-2021-0007'' in the subject line.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathleen Silbaugh, General Counsel,
                (202) 314-6080, [email protected].
                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To comply with the September 9, 2021,
                Executive Order (E.O.) 14043 (Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019
                Vaccination for Federal Employees) and October 2021 guidance from the
                Safer Federal Workforce Task Force, the NTSB created and received
                emergency clearance in November 2021 for the following form: Request
                for a Medical Exception to the COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement. This
                form is designed for agency employees requesting a medical exception to
                the vaccine requirements. The agency uses this form to determine
                whether the employee provided sufficient information to justify the
                request. Because the OMB number assigned to this form was obtained
                through emergency clearance, the OMB number is only valid for six
                months and will expire on May 31, 2022. In anticipation of future
                requests from its employees, the NTSB is specifically seeking an
                extension of this currently-approved collection.
                 Prior to submitting the ICR to the Office of Information and
                Regulatory Affairs, 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1) requires agencies to provide a
                60-day Notice in the Federal Register and otherwise consult with
                members of the public and affected agencies. Thus, through this Notice,
                the NTSB currently is soliciting public comments that include: (1)
                Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the NTSB to perform
                its mission; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the
                NTSB to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the IC; and (4)
                ways to minimize burden without reducing the quality of the IC.
                 This IC is necessary because when an agency employee requests a
                medical exception to the COVID-19 vaccine requirements, the NTSB will
                use the information provided on this form to determine whether the
                employee provided sufficient information to justify the request.
                 Title of Collection: Request for a Medical Exception to the COVID-
                19 Vaccination Requirement.
                 OMB Control Number: 3147-0028.
                 Form Number: Not applicable.
                 Type of Review: Extension of a currently-approved collection.
                 Affected Public: Private sector.
                 Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 20.
                 Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 1.
                 Frequency of Response: On occasion.
                 Total Estimated No. of Annual Responses: 20.
                Jennifer Homendy,
                Chair.
