Federal Aviation Administration

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Safe 
Disposition of Life-Limited Aircraft Parts

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 involves response to the 
Wendall H. Ford Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century which 
requires that all persons who remove any life-limited aircraft part 
have a method to prevent the installation of that part after it has 
reached its life limit.

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: 2120-0665.

    Title: Safe Disposition of Life-Limited Aircraft Parts.
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: 14 CFR part 43 requires a record keeping system to be 
maintained that will aid aircraft operators in determining the status 
of the life-limited parts from inadvertently being installed that have 
reached their life limit. This action reduces the risk of life-limited 
parts being used beyond their life limits. This action also requires 
that manufacturers of life-limited parts provide marking instructions, 
when requested.
    Respondents: Approximately 8,000 air carriers, repair stations, and 
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 15 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 104,000 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.
