Federal Aviation Administration

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Reduction of 
Fuel Tank Flammability on Transport Category Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA 
invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information 
collection. The FAA's Fuel Tank Flammability rule requires 
manufacturers to report to the FAA every six months for up to 5 years 
after the flammability reduction system is incorporated into the fleet. 
The data is needed to assure system performance meets that predicted at 
the time of certification.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by March 29, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathy DePaepe at (405) 954-9362, or by 
email at: [email protected].

    OMB Control Number: 2120-0710.
    Title: Reduction of Fuel Tank Flammability on Transport Category 
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: Design approval holders use flammability analysis 
documentation to demonstrate to their FAA Oversight Office that they 
are compliant with the Fuel Tank Flammability Safety rule (73 FR 
42443). Semi-annual reports submitted by design approval holders 
provide listings of component failures discovered during scheduled or 
unscheduled maintenance so that the reliability of the flammability 
reduction means can be verified by the FAA.
    Respondents: Approximately 5 design approval holders.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 100 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 4,000 hours.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Ms. Kathy 
DePaepe, Room 126B, Federal Aviation Administration, AES-200, 6500 S. 
MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73169.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the 
quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) 
ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of 
the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include 
your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information 

    Issued in Washington, DC, on January 22, 2013.
