2019-20163. Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Reduction of Fuel Tank Flammability on Transport Category Airplanes  

  • Start Preamble


    Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


    Notice and request for comments.


    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the FAA invites public comments about our intention to request Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The FAA's Fuel Tank Flammability Safety rulemaking requires manufacturers to provide a report to the FAA every 6 months for up to 5 years after the flammability reduction system is incorporated into the fleet. The data collection is needed to assure system performance meets that predicted at the time of certification.

    Title: Reduction of Fuel Tank Flammability on Transport Category Airplanes.

    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this collection.

    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 five design approval holders.

    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 100 hours.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 4,000 hours.
