safety goals. This notice requests comments on the extension of the 
phase-in reporting requirements of this FMVSS related to the 
implementation of advanced air bags. Phase 1 of the advanced air bag 
phase-in began September 1, 2003 with 100 percent compliance by 
September 1, 2005. Phase 2 of the advanced air bag phase-in begins 
September 1, 2006 with 100 percent compliance by September 1, 2009.
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information: NHTSA needs this information to ensure that vehicle 
manufacturers are certifying their applicable vehicles as meeting the 
new advanced air bag requirements of FMVSS No. 208. NHTSA will use this 
information to determine whether a manufacturer has complied with the 
amended requirements during the phase-in period.
    Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number 
and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information): 
NHTSA estimates that 21 vehicle manufacturers will submit the required 
information. For each report, the manufacturer will provide, in 
addition to its identity, several numerical items of information. The 
information includes, but is not limited to, the following items:
    (a) Total number of vehicles manufactured for sale during the 
preceding production year,
    (b) Total number of vehicles manufactured during the production 
year that meet the regulatory requirements, and
    (c) Information identifying the vehicles (by make, model, and 
vehicle identification number (VIN)) that have been certified as 
complying with the requirements.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden 
Resulting from the Collection of Information: NHTSA estimates that it 
will annually take each of the 21 affected manufacturers an average of 
61 hours to comply with these requirements. Using a cost estimate of 
$35 per hour, this results in a total annual cost of $44,835 (21 
manufacturers x 61 hours per manufacturer x $35 per hour).
