SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    OMB Control Number: 2120-0552.
    Title: Suspected Unapproved Parts Notification.
    Form Numbers: FAA Form 8120-11.
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: The information collected on the FAA Form 8120-11 is 
reported voluntarily by manufacturers, repair stations, aircraft owner/
operators, air carriers, and the general public who wish to report 
suspected unapproved parts to the FAA for review. The report 
information is collected and correlated by the FAA, Aviation Safety 
Hotline Program Office, and used to determine if an unapproved part 
investigation is warranted. When unapproved parts are confirmed that 
are likely to exist on other products or aircraft of the same or 
similar design or are being used in other facilities, the information 
is used as a basis for an aviation industry alert or notification. 
Alerts are used to inform industry of situations essential to the 
prevention of accidents, if the information had not been collected. The 
consequence to the aviation community would be the inability to 
determine whether or not unapproved parts are being offered for sale or 
use for installation on type-certificated products.
    Respondents: Approximately 150 manufactures, repair stations, 
aircraft owners/operators, and air carriers.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 75 hours.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on October 14, 2015.

FAA Information Collection Clearance Officer, IT Enterprises Business
