Download as PDF 7114 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 28 / Friday, February 10, 2006 / Notices rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 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 phasein 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 × 61 hours per manufacturer × $35 per hour). Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c); delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.50. Issued on: February 6, 2006. Stephen R. Kratzke, Associate Administrator for Rulemaking. [FR Doc.
