    Notice and request for comments.


    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. The Information to be collected is necessary to insure the safety of the flying public. Documentation of maintenance repair actions record who, what, when, where and how of the task performed. All maintenance actions as well as documentation are required by regulation. This insures proper certification of personnel; proper tooling is utilized and accurate measures to insure safety. The FAA reviewed 54,237 form 337s from October 2016 to September 2017. Each 337 takes approximately .5 hours. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 28, 2018. No comments were received.


    Written comments should be submitted by June 28, 2018.


    Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget.
