Privacy Act Statement
AUTHORITY: 33 U.S.C. §1321(j)(2)(A)
authorizes the collection of this information.
PURPOSE: To compile and maintain a comprehensive list of qualified spill
removal resources, personnel and equipment that will be available to assist Federal
and state agencies and the public in the event of a spill incident. ROUTINE USES:
The information will be used by and disclosed to Coast Guard personnel and Federal
On-Scene Coordinators in order to coordinate the use of private and public personnel
and equipment to aid in the removal of a worst-case discharge, and to mitigate or
prevent a substantial threat of such a discharge from a vessel, on or offshore facility,
operating in or near an area designated by the President.
DISCLOSURE: The Response Resource Inventory (RRI) is used as part of a voluntary
program to classify Oil Spill Removal Organizations (OSROs). While participation
in the program is voluntary, OSROs will be unable to gain classification without
providing the requested information. OSROs that establish an RRI account, but fail
to provide all requested information may be listed in the inventory, but shall be
identified as an unclassified OSRO.
The Coast Guard estimates that the
average burden for this report is about 12 hours. You may submit any comments concerning
