NOAA/NMFS Seeks Comments on Proposed ESA Information Collection

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration /National Marine Fisheries Service requests comments on its proposed extension of a currently approved Information Collection Request under the Paperwork Reduction Act. This proposed ICR collects information relevant to NOAA’s regulations under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

This request is for a representative of a group of potential permit applicants, rather than requiring each entity to apply for and receive a permit. The required information is used to evaluate the impacts of the proposed activity on endangered species, to make the determinations required by the ESA prior to issuing a permit, and to establish appropriate permit conditions.

Written comments must be submitted to NOAA/NMFS on or before February 23, 2015.
