AGENCY: ACTION: Notice. In the March 1, 2007 Federal Register (72 FR 9311), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC or Commission) published a notice in accordance with provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) to announce the agency’s intention to seek an extension of approval of information collection requirements in the Standard for the Flammability of Mattresses and Mattress Pads. 16 CFR part 1632. Comments were received from Barbara Lafferty and Clifford Nopp opposing a new standard for the flammability (open flame) of mattress sets under 16 CFR part 1633. Gabe Owens submitted comments stating that part 1632 should be terminated and superseded by the requirements in part 1633. These comments do not pertain to the collection of information requirements under part 1632. These comments should have been submitted in, and similar comments previously were addressed in the rulemaking proceeding promulgating 16 CFR part 1633, which is now codified. Accordingly, the Commission now announces that it is submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of approval of this collection of information. The standard is intended to reduce unreasonable risks of burn injuries and deaths from fires associated with mattresses and mattress pads. The standard prescribes a test to assure that a mattress or mattress pad will resist ignition from a smoldering cigarette. The standard requires manufacturers and importers to perform prototype tests of each combination of materials and construction methods used to produce mattresses or mattress pads and to obtain acceptable results from such testing. Manufacturers and importers are required to maintain the records and test results specified under the standard. OMB previously approved the collection of information under control number 3041–0014. OMB’s most recent extension of approval will expire on August 31, 2007. SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\04JNN1.SGM 04JNN1

notice in accordance with provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) to announce the agency's intention to seek 
extension of approval of the collection of information in the Safety 
Standard for Multi-Purpose Lighters. 16 CFR part 1212. No comments were

2063(a)) requires manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of a

consumer product subject to a consumer product safety standard to issue 
a certificate stating that the product complies with all applicable 
consumer product safety standards. Section 14(a) of the CPSA also 
requires that the certificate of compliance must be based on a test of 
each product or upon a reasonable testing program.
    Section 14(b) of the CPSA authorizes the Commission to issue 
regulations to prescribe a reasonable testing program to support 
certificates of compliance with a consumer product safety standard. 
Section 16(b) of the CPSA (15 U.S.C. 2065(b)) authorizes the Commission 
to issue rules to require that firms ``establish and maintain'' records 
to permit the Commission to determine compliance with rules issued 
under the authority of the CPSA.
    The Commission has issued regulations prescribing requirements for 
a reasonable testing program to support certificates of compliance with 
the standard for multi-purpose lighters. These regulations require 
manufacturers and importers to submit a description of each model of 
lighter, results of prototype qualification tests for compliance with 
the standard, and other information before the introduction of each 
model of lighter into commerce. These regulations also require 
manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of multi-purpose 
lighters to establish and maintain records to demonstrate successful 
completion of all required tests to support the certificates of 
compliance that they issue. 16 CFR part 1212, subpart B.
    The Commission uses the information compiled and maintained by 
manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of multi-purpose 
lighters to protect consumers from risks of accidental deaths and burn 
injuries associated with those lighters. More specifically, the 
Commission uses this information to determine whether lighters comply 
with the standard by resisting operation by young children. The 
Commission also uses this information to obtain corrective actions if 
multipurpose lighters fail to comply with the standard in a manner that 
creates a substantial risk of injury to the public.
    OMB approved the collection of information in the certification 
regulations for multi-purpose lighters under control number 3041-0130. 
OMB's current approval will expire on July 31, 2007. The Commission is 
requesting an extension of approval for these collection of information 
requirements.
