This request is for an extension of an existing information collection under OMB Control No. 0648-0151. NMFS does not anticipate that the extension will substantially add to the burden to individual private applicants for incidental take authorizations under the existing Control Number. The main difference we expect related to this extension is that there will be a larger number of applicants/respondents than accounted for in the existing OMB Control Number. In preparing this renewal, it was observed that some totals in the previous Supporting Statement were inaccurate. These have been corrected in this document. The Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) prohibits the "taking" of marine mammals unless otherwise authorized or exempted by law. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) uses the information collection to: evaluate the proposed activity's impact on marine mammals; arrive at the appropriate determinations required by the MMPA and other applicable laws prior to issuing or denying the authorization; and monitor impacts of activities for which take authorizations have been issued.
