CRE Files Comments on BSEE Information Collection Request
On October 24, 2012, the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness filed comments on an Information Collection Request that the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement has sent to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget for review and possible approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act. This ICR is necessary for BSEE’s information collection authority for certain offshore activities, including seismic operations. Among other points, CRE’s comments stated that if this ICR is approved in its current form and on its current record, then neither BSEE nor the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management may have any information collection authority over offshore seismic.
