These regulations were issued to reduce hazards of strangulation, suffocation, pinching, bruising, laceration, and other injuries associated with non-full-size cribs. The regulations prescribe performance, design, and labeling requirements for non-full-size cribs. They also require manufacturers and importers of those products to maintain sales records for a period of three years after the manufacture or importation of non-full-size cribs. If any non-full-size cribs subject to provisions of 16 CFR 1500.18(a)(14) and part 1509 fail to comply in a manner severe enough to warrant a recall, the required records can be used by the manufacturer or importer and by the Commission to identify those persons and firms who should be notified of the recall. OMB previously approved the collection of information under control number 3041–0012. OMB’s most recent extension of approval will expire on September 30, 2007.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: In the February 12, 2007 Federal Register (72 FR 6535), 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 the collection of information in the safety standard for bicycle helmets (16 CFR part 1203). These regulations establish testing and recordkeeping requirements for manufacturers and importers of bicycle helmets subject to the standard. No comments were received in response to the notice. The Commission now announces that it is submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of approval of that collection of information for a period of three years from the date of approval. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1994, Congress passed the ‘‘Child Safety Protection Act,’’ which, among other things, included the ‘‘Children’s Bicycle Helmet Safety Act of 1994’’ (Pub. L. 103–267, 108 Stat. 726). This law directed the Commission to issue a final standard applicable to bicycle helmets PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31297 that would replace several existing voluntary standards with a single uniform standard that would include provisions to protect against the risk of helmets coming off the heads of bicycle riders, address the risk of injury to children, and cover other issues as appropriate. The Commission issued the final bicycle helmet standard in 1998. It is codified at 16 CFR part 1203. The standard requires all bicycle helmets manufactured after March 10, 1999, to meet impact-attenuation and other requirements. The standard also contains testing and recordkeeping requirements to ensure that bicycle helmets meet the standard’s requirements. Certification regulations implementing the standard require manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of bicycle helmets subject to the standard to (1) Perform tests to demonstrate that those products meet the requirements of the standard, (2) maintain records of those tests, and (3) affix permanent labels to the helmets stating that the helmet complies with the applicable standard. The certification regulations are codified at 16 CFR part 1203, Subpart B. The Commission uses the information compiled and maintained by manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of bicycle helmets subject to the standard to help protect the public from risks of injury or death due to head injury associated with bicycle riding. More specifically, this information helps the Commission determine whether bicycle helmets subject to the standard comply with all applicable requirements. The Commission also uses this information to obtain corrective actions if bicycle helmets fail to comply with the standard in a manner that creates a substantial risk of injury to the public. OMB previously approved the collection of information under control number 3041–0127. OMB’s most recent extension of approval will expire on October 31, 2007.

CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION


Notification of Request for Extension of Approval of Information 
Collection Requirements--Safety Standard for Bicycle Helmets

AGENCY: Consumer Product Safety Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In the February 12, 2007 Federal Register (72 FR 6535), 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 the collection of information in the safety 
standard for bicycle helmets (16 CFR part 1203). These regulations 
establish testing and recordkeeping requirements for manufacturers and 
importers of bicycle helmets subject to the standard. No comments were 
received in response to the notice. The Commission now announces that 
it is submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request 
for extension of approval of that collection of information for a 
period of three years from the date of approval.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1994, Congress passed the ``Child Safety 
Protection Act,'' which, among other things, included the ``Children's 
Bicycle Helmet Safety Act of 1994'' (Pub. L. 103-267, 108 Stat. 726). 
This law directed the Commission to issue a final standard applicable 
to bicycle helmets that would replace several existing voluntary 
standards with a single uniform standard that would include provisions 
to protect against the risk of helmets coming off the heads of bicycle 
riders, address the risk of injury to children, and cover other issues 
as appropriate. The Commission issued the final bicycle helmet standard 
in 1998. It is codified at 16 CFR part 1203.
    The standard requires all bicycle helmets manufactured after March 
10, 1999, to meet impact-attenuation and other requirements. The 
standard also contains testing and recordkeeping requirements to ensure 
that bicycle helmets meet the standard's requirements. Certification 
regulations implementing the standard require manufacturers, importers, 
and private labelers of bicycle helmets subject to the standard to (1) 
Perform tests to demonstrate that those products meet the requirements 
of the standard, (2) maintain records of those tests, and (3) affix 
permanent labels to the helmets stating that the helmet complies with 
the applicable standard. The certification regulations are codified at 
16 CFR part 1203, Subpart B.
    The Commission uses the information compiled and maintained by 
manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of bicycle helmets 
subject to the standard to help protect the public from risks of injury 
or death due to head injury associated with bicycle riding. More 
specifically, this information helps the Commission determine whether 
bicycle helmets subject to the standard comply with all applicable 
requirements. The Commission also uses this information to obtain 
corrective actions if bicycle helmets fail to comply with the standard 
in a manner that creates a substantial risk of injury to the public. 
OMB previously approved the collection of information under control 
number 3041-0127. OMB's most recent extension of approval will expire 
on October 31, 2007.
