The information collection also includes the Department of Transportation (DOT) conformance bond that is furnished to CBP (on form HS–474) for each motor vehicle offered for importation that does not conform to all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS). The bond ensures that such vehicles are brought into conformity with those standards within 120 days from the date of entry or are exported from, or abandoned to, the United States. The information collection also includes paperwork that must be submitted to NHTSA and in some instances retained by registered importers (RIs) of motor vehicles that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS. These items include information that a person or business entity must submit to NHTSA to be registered as an RI and to retain that status. The paperwork also includes the statement of conformity that an RI must submit to NHTSA following the completion of conformance modifications on an imported nonconforming vehicle to obtain release of the DOT conformance bond furnished for the vehicle at the time of entry. Also included is the petition that an RI or manufacturer may submit to NHTSA for the agency to decide that a vehicle that was not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS is capable of being modified to conform to those standards and is therefore eligible for importation under 49 U.S.C. 30141. The information collection also includes applications that are filed with NHTSA for permission to import nonconforming vehicles for purposes of research, investigations, demonstrations, training, competitive racing events, and show or display, as well as applications requesting the agency to recognize vehicles manufactured for racing purposes as being qualified to be imported as vehicles that were not primarily manufactured for use on public roads, precluding the need for those vehicles to comply with the FMVSS. This information collection is necessary to ensure that motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment subject to the Federal motor vehicle safety, bumper, and theft prevention standards are lawfully imported into the United States and that RIs and applicants for RI status are capable of meeting their obligations under the statutes and regulations governing the importation of nonconforming vehicles. Affected Public: Individuals and commercial entities that import motor VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:19 Aug 10, 2007 Jkt 211001 vehicles or motor vehicle equipment subject to the FMVSS and vehicles that are not primarily manufactured for use on public roads, as well as applicants for RI status and existing RIs. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 42,413 hours; $1,655,613.00. 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. 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. • Whether the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection is accurate. • Ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected. • 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. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication. Issued on: August 7, 2007. Daniel C. Smith, Associate Administrator for Enforcement. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 I. Background The IAEA is the world’s center of cooperation in the nuclear field. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies. The IAEA established and maintains an international standard, Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (TS–R–1), to promote the safe and secure transportation of radioactive material. The IAEA periodically revises its Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material to reflect new information and accumulated experience. The DOT is the U.S. competent authority before the IAEA for radioactive material transportation matters. The NRC provides technical support to the DOT in this regard, particularly with regard to Type B and fissile transportation packages. The IAEA recently initiated the review cycle for a potential 2011 edition of its regulations. To assure opportunity for public participation in the international regulatory development process, the DOT and the NRC are soliciting comments and information concerning issues or problems with the IAEA Regulations. The focus of this solicitation is to identify issues or problems with the 2005 edition of TS–R–1. While it is helpful to identify potential changes or solutions to resolve the identified issues or problems, you need not provide a proposed change to accompany each identified issue or problem. This information will assist the DOT and the NRC to consider the full range of views as the agencies develop the proposed issues the United States will submit to the IAEA. II. Public Participation Proposed issues or identified problems should identify docket number PHMSA–07–28590 (Notice No. 07–6). Persons wishing to receive confirmation of receipt of their proposals should include a selfaddressed stamped postcard. Internet users may access all proposals received by the U.S. Department of Transportation at https://dms.dot.gov. Proposals must be submitted in writing (electronic file on disk in Microsoft Word format preferred) and should include: • Name; • Address; • Telephone number; • E-mail address; • Principal objective of issue or identified problem (e.g., required to provide adequate protection to health E:\FR\FM\13AUN1.SGM 13AUN1
