Previous terms of clearance continue to apply: Approved for one year (as of 4/20/17). During this time PHMSA is encouraged to continue exploring allowing paperless hazard communication and seek public input on advantages and disadvantages and appropriate performance standards. If PHMSA has not published a regulatory notice in the Federal Register seeking public comment on paperless hazard communication by the time PHMSA must publish a 60 day notice to extend OMB approval of this collection, PHMSA should include at least the following information in the 60 and 30 day notices for extending approval of this collection, in addition to the standard information required by the PRA: -- Identification and explanation of any technical and other barriers to paperless hazard communication by mode and environment (e.g., rural, urban) if applicable, and requests for public comment on ways to address those barriers; -- Identification and explanation of any safety problems associated with paperless hazard communication that are not present with paper-based hazard communication; -- Identification of safety, business and any other benefits associated with paperless hazard communication, by mode if possible; and -- At least rough estimates of the potential burden and cost reduction from fully allowing paperless hazard communication, by mode if possible, the methodology/inputs for the estimates, and request public comment on those estimates.
