This ICR revision is for the mandatory reporting of foreign motor carriers to report information to FMCSA on an annual basis using the OP-2 form in order to operate in the United States. This collection of information is used by the FMCSA to register foreign motor carriers to operate across the Mexico- U.S. border into the United States in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 13902(c) and 49 CFR 368. Data contained on the Form OP-2 will provide the FMCSA with evidence to assess the foreign (Mexico-based) motor carrier’s safety program and its ability to comply with U.S. safety standards. It also provides information concerning changes in each carrier’s operating status to ensure actual compliance with safety requirements. This enables the Agency to maintain an accurate census of registered carriers and ensure safety. The revision is due primarily for two reasons: 1) the removal of new applicants using form OP-2; and 2) the reduction in hours to complete the form from 4 hours to 1.5 hours. New applicants now are required to use form MCSA-1, which is accessed through the online Unified Registration System (URS). Form MCSA-1 is covered by the currently approved ICR titled “Unified Registration System, FMCSA Registration/Updates” (OMB Control No. 2126-0051). Only existing entities that have already used form OP-2 in the past, may continue to submit form OP-2 for changes and/or updates. As FMCSA is only expected to receive changes and/or updates, FMCSA reduces the time to complete the form from 4 hours to 1.5 hours.

Changing Forms
The respondent burden hours decreased by 2,061 (47 hours proposed – 2,108 hours currently approved = –2,061 hours). The change is due primarily for two reasons: 1) the removal of new applicants using form OP-2; and 2) the reduction in hours to complete the form from 4 hours to 1.5 hours. New applicants now are required to use form MCSA-1, which is accessed through the online Unified Registration System (URS). Form MCSA-1 is covered by the currently approved ICR titled “Unified Registration System, FMCSA Registration/Updates” (OMB Control No. 2126-0051). Only existing entities that have already used form OP-2 in the past, may continue to submit form OP-2 for changes and/or updates. As FMCSA is only expected to receive changes and/or updates, FMCSA reduces the time to complete the form from 4 hours to 1.5 hours. Annualized, the agency estimates that 31 respondents will incur a non-labor total cost of $155 ($0 in filing fees + $155 in mailing costs = $155), compared to 527 respondents, in the previous ICR submission, which incurred a total non-labor cost of $144,235 ($144,000 in filing fees + $235 in mailing costs). . The labor costs of $87,925 should not have been reported in the table above. If $144,235 was reported in the table above then a difference of $144,080 in annual burden costs ($144,235 - $155) would be shown in the table. A decrease of $87,770 is not a true value. There is a decrease of $85,884 in estimated labor-related burden costs to respondents ($87,925 currently approved − $2,041 proposed = $85,884). This is largely due to new forms not being collected as part of this ICR.
