SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: Names and Addresses of First Purchasers of Motor Vehicles. OMB Number: 2127–0044. Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30117(b) a manufacturer of a motor vehicle or tire (except a retreaded tire) shall maintain a record of the name and address of the first purchasers of each vehicle or tire it produces and, to the extent prescribed by regulation of the Secretary, shall maintain a record of the name and address of the first purchaser of replacement equipment (except a tire) that the manufacturer produces. This agency has no regulation specifying how the information is to be collected or maintained. When NHTSA’s authorizing statute was enacted in 1966, Congress determined that an efficient recall of defective or noncomplying motor vehicles required the vehicle manufacturers retain an accurate record of vehicle purchasers, in the event of a recall. Experience with this statutory provision has shown that manufacturers have retained this information in a manner sufficient to enable them to expeditiously notify vehicle purchasers in case of a recall. Based on this experience, NHTSA has determined that no regulation is needed. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,075,000 burden hours (875,000 hours for first purchaser information, plus 200,000 hours for manufacturer recordkeeping).
