Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 
at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 
approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 
comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Pipeline Corporate Security Review (PCSR).
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0056.
    Forms(s): Pipeline Corporate Security Review (PCSR) Protocol Form.
    Affected Public: Hazardous Liquids and Natural Gas Pipeline 
    Abstract: Under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) 
and delegated authority from the Secretary of Homeland Security, TSA is 
tasked with developing policies, strategies and plans for dealing with 
transportation security. To carry out this responsibility regarding 
pipelines, TSA assesses current industry security practices through its 
Pipeline Corporate Security Review (PCSR) program. The PCSR is a 
voluntary, face-to-face visit with a pipeline operator during which TSA 
discusses an operator's corporate security planning and also completes 
the PCSR Form. The PCSR Form includes 218 questions concerning the 
operator's corporate level security planning, covering security topics 
such as physical security, vulnerability assessments, training, and 
emergency communications. TSA uses the information collected during the 
PCSR process to determine baseline security standards and areas of 
security weakness in the pipeline mode.
    Number of Respondents: 2,200 potential respondents; likely 15 
annual respondents.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 120 hours annually, 
based on TSA conducting 15 PCSR visits a year, each lasting 8 hours.

    Dated: April 30, 2013.
Susan L. Perkins,
TSA Paperwork Reduction Act Officer, Office of Information Technology.
