Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Forms 5712 and 5712-A, 16415 [E6-4669]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 62 / Friday, March 31, 2006 / Notices in its products so that the manufacturer can, in turn, notify purchasers and correct the defect. This information also enables NHTSA to serve a foreign manufacturer with all administrative and judicial processes, notices, orders, decisions and requirements. NHTSA recently amended the regulation implementing that statutory requirement, codified at 49 CFR part 551, subpart B, rephrasing it in a plain language, question and answer format and inserting an appendix containing a suggested designation form for use by foreign manufacturers and their agents. The purpose of the suggested designation format was to simplify the information collection and submission process, and thereby reduce the burden imposed on each covered manufacturer by 49 CFR part 551, subpart D. To further streamline the information collection process, NHTSA has set up a customer Web site that may be accessed at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/ manufacture/agent/customer.html. Estimated Annual Burden: 120 hours. Estimated Number of Respondents: 240 respondents. ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725–17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer. The 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.
