Reports, Forms, and Recordkeeping Requirements, 71601-71602 [E5-6637]

Download as PDF 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.

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 71602 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 29, 2005 / Notices Title: Insurer Reporting Requirement for 49 CFR Part 544. OMB Control Number: 2127–0547. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Form Number: The collection of information uses no standard forms. Abstract: This information collection supports the Department’s strategic goal of Economic Growth and Trade. The Motor Vehicle Theft Law Enforcement Act of 1984, added Title VI to the Motor Vehicle and Information Cost Savings Act (recodified as Chapter 331 of Title 49, United States Code) (copy attached) which mandated this information collection. The 1984 Theft act was amended by the Anti Car Theft Act (ACTA) of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–519). NHTSA is authorized under 49 U.S.C. 33112, to collect this information. This information collection supports the agency’s economic growth and trade goal through rulemaking implementation developed to help reduce the cost of vehicle ownership by reducing the cost of comprehensive insurance coverage. 49 U.S.C. 33112 requires certain passenger motor vehicle insurance companies and rental/leasing companies to provide information to NHTSA on comprehensive insurance premiums, theft and recoveries and actions taken to address motor vehicle theft. Estimated Annual Burden: Based on prior years’ insurer compilation information, the agency estimates that the time to review and compile information for the reports will take approximately a total of 66,300 burden hours (56,700 man-hours for 28 insurance companies and 9,600 manhours for 17 rental and leasing companies). Most recent year insurer compilation information estimates that it takes an average cost of $36.00 per hour for clerical and technical staff to prepare the annual reports. Therefore, the agency estimates the total cost associated with the burden hours to be $2,386,800. The burden hour for rental and leasing companies is significantly less than that for insurance companies because rental and leasing companies comply with fewer reporting requirements than the insurance companies. The reporting burden is based on claim adjusters’ salaries, clerical and technical expenses, and labor costs. Number of Respondents: 45.
