Title: Section 76.962, Implementation and Certification of Compliance


A. Justification:

1. 47 CFR 76.962 requires any cable operator that has been deemed subject to remedial requirements to certify its compliance with the Commission Order requiring prospective rate reductions, refunds or other remedial relief to subscribers. The certification must be filed with the Commission within 90 days from the date of the Order mandating a remedy.

The Commission is requesting an extension of this information collection in order to receive the full three year OMB approval/clearance for the collection.

As noted on the OMB Form 83-I, this information collection does not affect individuals or households; thus, there are no impacts under the Privacy Act.

Statutory authority for the collection of information is contained in Sections 154(i) and 623 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.

2. These certifications are used by the Commission to monitor a cable operator's compliance with Commission rate orders.

3. Use of information technology is not feasible in this situation.

4. This agency does not impose a similar information collection on the respondents. There are no similar data available.

5. This collection of information does not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small businesses.

6. If this collection of information was not conducted, compliance with Commission orders requiring prospective rate reduction, refunds, or other remedial relief to subscribers would go unchecked.

7. There are no special circumstances associated with this information collection.

8. The Commission published a Notice (72 FR 57939) in the Federal Register on October 11, 2007. No comments were generated as a result of the Notice.

9. Respondents will not receive any payments.

10. There is no need for confidentiality.

11. This information collection does not address any private matters of a sensitive nature.

12. We estimate that the Commission will annually receive approximately 10 certifications. The average burden to create and file certifications is estimated at 0.5 hours per certification.

Total annual number of respondents = 10 Cable Operators

Total annual number of responses = 10 Certifications

Total annual burden hours = 10 certification filings x 0.5 hours/filing/respondent = 5 hours

In-house costs: We estimate an average hourly wage of $35.00 per hour for individuals tasked with filing the certifications.

10 certification filings x 0.5 hours/filing/respondent x $35/hour = $175

13. Annual Cost Burden:

  1. Total annualized capital/startup costs: None

  1. Total annual costs (O&M): None

(c) Total annualized cost requested: None

14. Cost to the Federal Government. Certifications estimated to be filed annually: 10. Average processing time: 0.5 hours. Paraprofessional staff paid at $43.12 per hour will be used to process certifications.

Cost to the Government:

10 certifications filings x 0.5 hours/filing x $43.12 per hour = $215.60

15. There are no program changes or adjustments.

16. The results of this information collection requirement are not planned to be published.

17. We are not seeking approval to not display the expiration date for OMB approval of the information collection.

18. There are no exceptions to Certificate Statement in Item 19.

B. Collections of Information Employing Statistical Methods

No statistical methods are employed.
