SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) 
and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal 
agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information 
collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. 44 
U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), 1320.12. On April 16, 
2015, OST published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting 
comment on ICRs for which the agency was seeking OMB approval. See 80 
FR 20554. OST received no comments after issuing this notice. 
Accordingly, the Department has not made any changes to its anticipated 
burden hours for the respondents to comply with these requirements. The 
Department announces that these information collection activities have 
been re-evaluated and certified under 5 CFR. 1320.5(a) and is 
forwarding to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12(c).
    Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of 
information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 
3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or 
disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day 
notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)-(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 
60 FR 44978, 44983 (Aug. 29, 1995). OMB believes that the 30-day notice 
informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords 
the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a 
decision. 60 FR 44983 (Aug. 29, 1995). Therefore, respondents should 
submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication 
to best ensure their full consideration. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 
FR 44983 (Aug. 29, 1995). The summaries below describe the nature of 
the ICR and the expected burden.
    Title: Reporting Requirements for Disability-Related Complaints.
    OMB Control Number: 2105-0551.
    Type of Request: Renewal of Information Collection Request.
    Background: On July 8, 2003, the Office of the Secretary published 
a final rule that requires certificated U.S. and foreign air carriers 
operating to, from and within the U.S. that conduct passenger-carrying 
service utilizing at least one large aircraft to record complaints that 
they receive alleging inadequate accessibility or discrimination on the 
basis of disability. The carriers must also categorize these complaints 
according to the type of disability and nature of complaint, prepare a 
summary report annually of the complaints received during the preceding 
calendar year, submit the report to the Department's Aviation Consumer 
Protection Division, and retain copies of correspondence and

[[Page 64061]]

records of action taken on the reported complaints for three years. The 
rule requires carriers to submit their annual report via the World Wide 
Web except if the carrier can demonstrate an undue burden by doing so 
and receives permission from the Department to submit it in an 
alternative manner. The first required report covered disability-
related complaints received by carriers during calendar year 2004, 
which was due to the Department on January 31, 2005. Carriers have been 
required to submit all subsequent reports on the last Monday in January 
for the prior calendar year. On November 3, 2010, OMB approved 
information collection of disability-related complaints, ``Reporting 
Requirements for Disability-related Complaints'' through November 30, 
2013. The application to renew this information collection request was 
published in the Federal Register on Thursday, April 16, 2015, 80 FR 
20554.
    Respondents: Certificated U.S. and foreign air carriers operating 
to, from, and within the United States that conduct passenger-carrying 
service with large aircraft.

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information 
is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record.
