ISCD Publishes 60-day CVI ICR

CISA is publishing a 60-day ICR notice in Monday’s (available online today) Federal Register (85 FR 17593-17594) for an extension of the current Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI) information collection request (ICR). This would cover the information ISCD would collect on-line from personnel requesting to become a CVI authorized user.

ICR Burden

The key to estimating the burden of the ICR is to determine the number of  people that will be attempting to become CVI certified. CISA provides the last three-year data on the applications, but notes: “Due to past fluctuations and uncertainty regarding the number of future respondents, CISA believes that 20,000 continues to be a reasonable estimate.” This results in an extension of the current burden (estimate below) without change.

• Number of respondents – 20,000
• Time per respondent – 30-min
• Annual time burden – 10,000-hours

With an estimated average hourly wage for requestors being $79.75 this brings the annual cost burden to $797,474 per year.

Public Comments

CISA is soliciting public comments on this ICR notice. Comments may be solicited on the Federal eRulemaking Portal (; Docket # CISA-2020-0002). Comments are due by May 29th, 2020.
