NHTSA published a 60-day Federal Register notice for this collection on December 28, 2016 (81 FR 95729). The agency received 0 comments on that notice. Title: Confidential Business Information. Type of Request: Reinstatement of a currently approved collection.1 Form Number: This collection of information uses no standard forms. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three (3) years from the date of approval of the collection. OMB Control Number: 2127–0025. Frequency: Submission of information pursuant to this regulation will depend on the frequency with which a given entity, such as a manufacturer of motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment, submits information and a request that NHTSA hold the information confidential, generally pursuant to Exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4). Affected Public: This collection of information would apply to any person who seeks to have NHTSA treat as confidential information submitted to NHTSA either voluntarily or pursuant to a mandatory information request issued by NHTSA. Thus, the collection of information could apply to any of the entities over which NHTSA exercises regulatory authority. Recent trends lead NHTSA to estimate that it will receive approximately 500 requests for confidential treatment per year throughout the duration of this collection. Large manufacturers make the vast majority of requests for confidential treatment. Abstract: NHTSA’s Confidential Business Information (CBI) rule, coupled with case law, has governed the submission of requests for confidential treatment of information for over 20 years. Estimated Annual Burden: Using the above estimate of approximately 500 requests for confidentiality per year, with an estimated eight hours of preparation to collect and provide the information, at an assumed rate of $24.92 per hour, the annual estimated cost of collecting and preparing the information necessary for 500 complete requests for confidential treatment is about $99,680 (8 hours of preparation × 1 NHTSA published a 60-day notice seeking a renewal of Information Collection 2127–0025 on December 28, 2016. Because NHTSA will be unable to submit the request for renewal of this collection to OMB prior to the collection’s expiration on April 30, 2017, we are now requesting that the approval for this collection be reinstated rather than requesting that the approval be renewed. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Apr 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 500 requests × $24.92). Adding in a postage cost of $3,325 (500 requests at a cost of $6.65 for postage (priority flat rate envelope from USPS)), we estimate that it will cost $103,005 per year for persons to prepare and submit the information necessary to satisfy the confidential business information provisions of 49 CFR part 512. Requesters are not required to keep copies of any records or reports submitted to us. As a result, the cost imposed to keep records would be zero hours and zero costs. Number of Respondents: We estimate that there will be approximately 500 requests per year. Summary of the Collection of Information: Any entity seeking confidential treatment for information submitted to NHTSA will be required to request confidential treatment from NHTSA and to justify that request. To obtain confidential treatment of submitted information, the submitting entity must comply with the requirements in NHTSA’s CBI regulation and satisfy the requirements for one of the exemptions provided under the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b).

collection.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ NHTSA published a 60-day notice seeking a renewal of 
Information Collection 2127-0025 on December 28, 2016. Because NHTSA 
will be unable to submit the request for renewal of this collection 
to OMB prior to the collection's expiration on April 30, 2017, we 
are now requesting that the approval for this collection be 
reinstated rather than requesting that the approval be renewed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Form Number: This collection of information uses no standard forms.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three (3) years from the 
date of approval of the collection.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0025.
    Frequency: Submission of information pursuant to this regulation 
will depend on the frequency with which a given entity, such as a 
manufacturer of motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment, submits 
information and a request that NHTSA hold the information confidential, 
generally pursuant to Exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4).
    Affected Public: This collection of information would apply to any 
person who seeks to have NHTSA treat as confidential information 
submitted to NHTSA either voluntarily or pursuant to a mandatory 
information request issued by NHTSA. Thus, the collection of 
information could apply to any of the entities over which NHTSA 
exercises regulatory authority. Recent trends lead NHTSA to estimate 
that it will receive approximately 500 requests for confidential 
treatment per year throughout the duration of this collection. Large 
manufacturers make the vast majority of requests for confidential 
treatment.
    Abstract: NHTSA's Confidential Business Information (CBI) rule, 
coupled with case law, has governed the submission of requests for 
confidential treatment of information for over 20 years.
    Estimated Annual Burden: Using the above estimate of approximately 
500 requests for confidentiality per year, with an estimated eight 
hours of preparation to collect and provide the information, at an 
assumed rate of $24.92 per hour, the annual estimated cost of 
collecting and preparing the information necessary for 500 complete 
requests for confidential treatment is about $99,680 (8 hours of 
preparation x 500 requests x $24.92). Adding in a postage cost of 
$3,325 (500 requests at a cost of $6.65 for postage (priority flat rate 
envelope from USPS)), we estimate that it will cost $103,005 per year 
for persons to prepare and submit the information necessary to satisfy 
the confidential business information provisions of 49 CFR part 512.
    Requesters are not required to keep copies of any records or 
reports submitted to us. As a result, the cost imposed to keep records 
would be zero hours and zero costs.
    Number of Respondents: We estimate that there will be approximately 
500 requests per year.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: Any entity seeking 
confidential treatment for information submitted to NHTSA will be 
required to request confidential treatment from NHTSA and to justify 
that request. To obtain confidential treatment of submitted 
information, the submitting entity must comply with the requirements in 
NHTSA's CBI regulation and satisfy the requirements for one of the 
exemptions provided under the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b).

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th

information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the

and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including
