TSA will collect rail security coordinator information (RSC) and reports of significant security concerns from freight and passenger railroad carriers, rail transit systems, and rail hazardous materials shipper and receiver facilities, which TSA will use to provide entities with timely notification of vital security information. TSA will require the reporting of significant security concerns, which will increase the agency's domain awareness in the rail mode. TSA will also require that these entities document and maintain records of the secure exchange of custody of rail cars carrying the categories and quantities of hazardous materials outlined in 49 CFR 1580.100(b).

The types of collections of information have not changed but the estimations of burden have changed. More regulated parties have complied with the regulation and provided information. The following is a summary of the changes that resulted in revised estimations of burden: • Security Coordinator Information: There has been a change in the estimated hourly burden for this information collection. The previously estimated hour burden was 804 hours. TSA now estimates an annual hour burden of 475. This change is due to a decrease in annual responses. • Location and Shipping Information: This collection has an increase in burden. Previously, TSA estimated an annual hour burden of 165. TSA now estimates an annual hour burden of 327. This change is due to an increase in annual responses. The amount of time per response remains the same. • Significant Security Concerns Information: This collection has a slight decrease in the annual hour burden. Previously, TSA estimated an annual hour burden of 5,475 hours. TSA now estimates that there is an annual hour burden of 4,961 hours, a decrease of 514 hours. This change is due to TSA now estimating a per-response hour burden. • Chain of Custody and Control Documentation: Previously, TSA estimated an annual hour burden of 39,000 hours. TSA now estimates an annual hour burden of 107,000 hours. This increase in the annual hour burden is due to a large increase in the number of annual responses. TSA has improved data fidelity, and bases its estimate of the number of annual responses on actual data from the Rail Asset Integrated Logistics System (RAILS) Dashboard, which is a tool TSA uses to collect data for non-regulatory activities.
