Public Participation and Request for Comments

This notice relies on the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act

OIRA seeking the approval, extension, or renewal of a Coast Guard

collection of information (Collection). The ICR contains information

describing the Collection's purpose, the Collection's likely burden on

the affected public, an explanation of the necessity of the Collection,

and other important information describing the Collection. There is one

ICR for each Collection.

The Coast Guard invites comments on whether this ICR should be

granted based on the Collection being necessary for the proper

performance of Departmental functions. In particular, the Coast Guard

would appreciate comments addressing: (1) The practical utility of the

Collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the Collection;

(3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of information

subject to the Collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the

Collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection

techniques or other forms of information technology.

to seek an extension of approval for the Collection. We will consider

all comments and material received during the comment period.

We encourage you to respond to this request by submitting comments

and related materials. Comments must contain the OMB Control Number of

Information Collection Request

Title: Official Logbook.

OMB Control Number: 1625-0018.

Summary: The Official Logbook contains information about the

voyage, the vessel's crew, drills, watches, and operations conducted

during the voyage. Official Logbook entries identify particulars of the

voyage, including the name of the ship, official number, port of

registry, tonnage, names and merchant mariner credential numbers of the

master and crew, the nature of the voyage, and class of ship. In

addition, it also contains entries for the vessel's drafts, maintenance

of watertight integrity of the ship, drills and inspections, crew list

and report of character, a summary of laws applicable to Official

Logbooks, and miscellaneous entries.

Need: Title 46, United States Code (U.S.C.) sections 11301, 11302,

11303, and 11304 require applicable merchant vessels to maintain an

Official Logbook. The Official Logbook contains information about the

vessel, voyage, crew, and watch. Lack of these particulars would make

it difficult for a seaman to verify vessel employment and wages, and

for the Coast Guard to verify compliance with laws and regulations

concerning vessel operations and safety procedures. The Official

Logbook serves as an official record of recordable events transpiring

at sea such as births, deaths, marriages, disciplinary actions, etc.

Absent the Official Logbook, there would be no official civil record of

these events. The courts accept log entries as proof that the logged

event occurred. If this information was not collected, the Coast

Guard's commercial vessel safety program would be negatively impacted,

as there would be no official record of U.S. merchant vessel voyages.

Similarly, those seeking to prove that an event required to be logged

occurred would not have an official record available.


CG-706B, Official Logbook.

Respondents: Shipping companies.

Frequency: On occasion.

Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden remains at 1,750 hours a


Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. chapter

35, as amended.

Dated: April 6, 2021.

Kathleen Claffie,

Chief, Office of Privacy Management, U.S. Coast Guard.
