SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Designation of Agent for Service of Process. OMB Control Number: 2127–0400. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the approval date. Type of Request: Extension of a previously approved collection. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Form Number: N/A. Abstract: This collection of information applies to motor vehicle and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers located outside of the United States (‘‘foreign manufacturers’’). Section 110(e) of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 (49 U.S.C. 30164) requires a foreign manufacturer offering a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment for importation into the United States to designate a permanent resident of the United States as its agent upon whom service of notices and processes may be made in administrative and judicial proceedings. These designations are required to be filed with NHTSA. NHTSA requires this information in case it needs to advise a foreign manufacturer of a safety related defect E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM 31MRN1 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.

approval date.
    Type of Request: Extension of a previously approved collection.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
    Form Number: N/A.
    Abstract: This collection of information applies to motor vehicle 
and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers located outside of the United 
States (``foreign manufacturers''). Section 110(e) of the National 
Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 (49 U.S.C. 30164) requires 
a foreign manufacturer offering a motor vehicle or motor vehicle 
equipment for importation into the United States to designate a 
permanent resident of the United States as its agent upon whom service 
of notices and processes may be made in administrative and judicial 
proceedings. These designations are required to be filed with NHTSA. 
NHTSA requires this information in case it needs to advise a foreign 
manufacturer of a safety related defect

[[Page 16415]]

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.
