Synopsis

    As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3507), the FCC is notifying the public that on June 7, 2013 it received 
OMB approval for the information collection requirements contained in 
the modifications to the Commission's rules found in 47 CFR 13.9, 
13.13(c), 13.17(b), 13.211(e) and 13.217.
    Under 5 CFR 13.20, an agency may not conduct or sponsor a 
collection of information unless it displays a current, valid OMB 
Control Number.
    No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply 
with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act 
that does not display a current, valid OMB Control Number. The OMB 
Control Number is 3060-0537.
    The foregoing notice is required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995, Public Law 104-13, October 1, 1995, and 44 U.S.C. 3507.
    The total annual reporting burdens and costs for the respondents 
are as follows:

    Needs and Uses: Each COLEM recovering fees from examinees must 
maintain records of expenses and revenues, frequency of examinations 
administered, and examination pass rates. Records must cover from 
January to December 31 of the preceding year and must be submitted as 
directed by the FCC. Each COLEM must retain records for three years and 
the records must be made available to the FCC upon request.
    The records are journal entries showing revenues collected and 
expenses incurred. The records may be inspected by FCC field 
investigators. The records will provide a vehicle for the FCC to cancel 
the designation of a person or organization as an examination manager. 
If the information were not collected, it is conceivable that fraud and 
abuse could occur in the commercial operator examination program.

Federal Communications Commission.
