    The form has been revised to include the new classes (types) of

categorize explosives licenses and permits by only six major classes. 
The classes are: Manufacturer, Dealer, Importer, User, User-Limited and 
Type 60. The form will still capture the types of explosives materials 
being manufactured, imported, acquired and used by explosives licensees 
and permittees, however, they will no longer be classified by type

collection: There are an estimated 15,000 total burden hours associated 
with this collection.
