ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below has been forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR describes the nature of the information collections and their expected burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was published on May 19, 2005 (70 FR 28843). This is a request for a new collection. DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before December 29, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: 49 CFR 545—Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard Phase-In and Small-Volume Line Reporting Requirement. OMB Control Number: 2127–. Form Number: None. Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. Abstract: Part 545 requires manufacturers to file a single report within 60 days of the end of the first year of the phase-in (August 31, 2007) indicating compliance with the phase-in of the expansion of the parts marking requirements of 49 CFR part 541. 49 CFR part 541, Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, requires the major parts of certain motor vehicle lines to be indelibly marked with labels containing the Vehicle Identification Number. This ‘‘parts E:\FR\FM\29NON1.SGM 29NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 29, 2005 / Notices marking requirement’’ reduces the incidence of motor vehicle thefts by facilitating the tracing and recovery of parts from stolen vehicles, and prosecuting thieves, chop shop operators, and stolen parts dealers. The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–519, October 25, 1992, codified in 49 U.S.C. chapter 331, Theft Prevention) required the Department of Transportation to expand the parts marking requirement to vehicle lines not subject to the current parts marking requirements (except light duty trucks (LDT) lines), unless subsequent to a study reviewing the effectiveness of parts marking, the Attorney General made a finding that extending the requirement would not substantially inhibit chop shop operations and motor vehicle theft. On April 6, 2004 the agency published a final rule (69 FR 17960) extending the parts marking requirements to certain vehicle lines that were not previously subject to these requirements, specifically: (1) All low theft passenger car lines; (2) all low theft multipurpose passenger vehicle (MPV) lines with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 6,000 pounds or less; and (3) low theft LDT lines with a GVWR of 6,000 pounds or less that have major parts that are interchangeable with a majority of the covered major parts of passenger cars or MPVs described above. On May 19, 2005, in response to petitions for reconsideration (70 FR 28843) NHTSA amended the final rule to phase in the effective date over a twoyear period. NHTSA anticipates that no more than 21 vehicle manufacturers will be affected by these reporting requirements. NHTSA does not believe that any of these 21 manufacturers are a small business (i.e., one that employs less than 500 persons) since each manufacturer employs more than 500 persons. NHTSA estimates that the vehicle manufacturers will incur a total annual reporting burden of 42 hours and a cost burden of $630–$840. 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. • Whether the Department’s estimate for the burden of the proposed information collection is accurate. • 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) 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; (ii) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including 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. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following previously approved collection of information: E:\FR\FM\29NON1.SGM 29NON1

marking requirement'' reduces the incidence of motor vehicle thefts by 
facilitating the tracing and recovery of parts from stolen vehicles, 
and prosecuting thieves, chop shop operators, and stolen parts dealers.
    The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-519, October 25, 1992, 
codified in 49 U.S.C. chapter 331, Theft Prevention) required the 
Department of Transportation to expand the parts marking requirement to 
vehicle lines not subject to the current parts marking requirements 
(except light duty trucks (LDT) lines), unless subsequent to a study 
reviewing the effectiveness of parts marking, the Attorney General made 
a finding that extending the requirement would not substantially 
inhibit chop shop operations and motor vehicle theft.
    On April 6, 2004 the agency published a final rule (69 FR 17960) 
extending the parts marking requirements to certain vehicle lines that 
were not previously subject to these requirements, specifically: (1) 
All low theft passenger car lines; (2) all low theft multipurpose 
passenger vehicle (MPV) lines with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) 
of 6,000 pounds or less; and (3) low theft LDT lines with a GVWR of 
6,000 pounds or less that have major parts that are interchangeable 
with a majority of the covered major parts of passenger cars or MPVs 
described above. On May 19, 2005, in response to petitions for 
reconsideration (70 FR 28843) NHTSA amended the final rule to phase in 
the effective date over a two-year period.
    NHTSA anticipates that no more than 21 vehicle manufacturers will 
be affected by these reporting requirements. NHTSA does not believe 
that any of these 21 manufacturers are a small business (i.e., one that 
employs less than 500 persons) since each manufacturer employs more 
than 500 persons.
    NHTSA estimates that the vehicle manufacturers will incur a total 
annual reporting burden of 42 hours and a cost burden of $630-$840.
    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.
     Whether the Department's estimate for the burden of the 
proposed information collection is accurate.
     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.
    A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 
days of publication.
