Abstract: Under Chapter 301 of Title 49 of the United States Code, manufacturers of motor vehicles and items of motor vehicle equipment are periodically required to submit certain information to NHTSA, including information about claims and notices about deaths and serious injury, property damage data, communications to customers and others, and information on incidents resulting in fatalities or serious injuries from possible defects in vehicles or equipment in the United States or in identical or substantially similar vehicles or equipment in foreign countries. The statute also authorized NHTSA to require the submission of other data that may assist in the identification of safety-related defects in vehicles and equipment. Information and documents submitted are intended to provide NHTSA with ‘‘early warning’’ of potential safetyrelated defects in motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment. NHTSA will rely on the information provided (as well as other relevant information) in deciding whether to open safety defect investigations. Please note that the currently approved ICR, ‘‘Reporting of Information About Foreign Safety Recalls and Campaigns Related to Potential Defects’’ (OMB Control Number 2127–0620) is incorporated with this request for collections. Affected Public: Manufacturers of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment sold in the U.S. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The annual burden is estimated to be 84,218 hours. The estimated annual cost is $8,105,551. Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 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 proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
