The FMC is inviting comments through Dec. 22 on the proposed extension without change of the information collection on controlled carriers. The FMC is required to monitor the practices of controlled carriers to ensure that they do not (a) maintain rates or charges in their tariffs and service contracts that are below a level that is just and reasonable or (b) establish, maintain, or enforce unjust or unreasonable classifications, rules, or regulations in those tariffs or service contracts that result or are likely to result in the carriage or handling of cargo at rates or charges that are below a just and reasonable level. When a government acquires a controlling interest in an ocean common carrier, or when a controlled carrier newly enters a U.S. trade, such carrier must notify the FMC.
