Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Aircraft Noise 
Certification Documents for International Operations

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 a previously approved 
information collection. This collection ensures that U.S. operators 
have proper noise certification information when they fly outside the 
U.S., in compliance with ICAO, Annex 16, Volume 1, Amendment 8.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by August 18, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Ronda 
Thompson, Federal Aviation Administration, ASP-110, 800 Independence 
Ave. SW., Washington, DC 20591.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ronda Thompson by email at: 
[email protected]; phone: 202-267-1416.

    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 
    OMB Control Number: 2120-0737.
    Title: Aircraft Noise Certification Documents for International 
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: 14 CFR part 91 requires operators of U.S. registered 
civil aircraft flying outside the United States to carry aircraft noise 
certification information on board. This rule is needed to ensure 
consistent compliance with the ICAO, Annex 16, Volume 1, Amendment 8 
that requires certain noise information be carried on board the 
aircraft. The rule requires that this information be easily accessible 
to the flight crew and presentable upon request to the appropriate 
foreign officials.
    Respondents: Approximately 73 operators of aircraft currently 
registered to U.S. mainline air carriers.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 25 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 31 hours.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on June 5, 2017.
Ronda L. Thompson,
FAA Information Collection Clearance Officer, Performance, Policy, and 
Records Management Branch, ASP-110.
