OMB Control Number: 2127–0539. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Manufacturers of light duty trucks must identify new model introductions that are likely to be hightheft lines as defined in 49 U.S.C. 33104. In 1984, Congress enacted the Motor Vehicle Theft Law Enforcement Act (the 1984 Theft Act). As a means to prevent the theft of motor vehicles for their parts, the 1984 Theft Act required vehicle manufacturers to mark the major parts of ‘‘high-theft’’ passenger cars and the major replacement parts for those cars. The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 (ACTA) amended the 1984 Theft Act to extend its provisions to multipurpose passenger vehicles (MPVs) and light duty trucks (LDTs). The 1984 Theft Act, as amended by ACTA, requires NHTSA to promulgate a theft prevention standard for the designation of high-theft vehicle lines. The specific lines are to be selected by agreement between the manufacturer and the agency. If there is a disagreement of the selection, the statute states that the agency shall select such lines and parts, after notice to the manufacturer and an opportunity for written comment. NHTSA’s procedures for selecting high theft vehicle lines are contained in 49 CFR Part 542. In a final rule published on April 6, 2004, the Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard was extended to include all passenger cars and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 6,000 pounds or less, regardless of whether they were likely to be high or low theft, and to light duty trucks with major parts that are interchangeable with a majority of the covered major parts of multipurpose passenger vehicles. The final rule became effective September 1, 2006. Since the new parts-marking final rule became effective, the number of petitions requested from manufacturers will increase. NHTSA anticipates that there are approximately 7 vehicle manufacturers that will request a theft determination, since the effective date of the rule, all 7 are still active in the U.S. market and are estimated to respond on an annual basis. We anticipate this to remain the average number of yearly responses received by the agency. NHTSA estimates that the average hours per submittal will be 45, for a PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 total annual burden of 315. This decrease from the previous OMB inventory of 900 hours. NHTSA estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is a $57.06 per hour, for a total cost of approximately $18,000. Affected Public: Motor vehicle manufacturers. Estimated Total Annual Burden: NHTSA estimates that there would be no additional cost to motor vehicle manufacturers that would require it to comply to this regulation. Issued on: March 7, 2008.
