    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval is being sought

collection was previously published by the Immigration and 
Naturalization Service (INS) in the Federal Register on September 27, 
2002 at 67 FR 61153, allowing for a 60-day public review and comment 
period. The INS received no public comments. The purpose of this notice 
is to allow an additional 30 days for public comments. Comments are 
encouraged and will be accepted for thirty days until March 7, 2003. 
This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR Part 1320.10.
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the items contained 
in this notice, especially regarding the estimated public burden and 
associated response time, should be directed to the Office of 
Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
Attention: Department of Justice Desk Officer, 725--17th Street, NW.,

    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.

replacement of a Declaration of Intention, Naturalization Certificate, 
Certificate of Citizenship or Repatriation Certificate that was lost, 
mutilated or destroyed, or if the applicant's name was changed by 
marriage or by court order after issuance of original document. This
