SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Designation of Agent for Service of Process. OMB Control Number: 2127–0040. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the approval date. Type of Request: Extension of a previously approved collection. VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:46 Oct 19, 2009 Jkt 220001 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 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. When NHTSA amended the regulation implementing that statutory requirement, codified at 49 CFR Part 551, subpart D, NHTSA included 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 https://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.
