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 http://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. The 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; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53793 minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    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

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 http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/manufacture/agent/customer.html.

and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize
