In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collections of information: Title: Part 585—Advanced Air Bag Phase-In Reporting Requirements. OMB Control Number: 2127–0599. Form Number: This collection of information uses no standard form. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the approval date. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Summary of the Collection of Information: 49 U.S.C. 30111 authorizes the issuance of Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) and regulations. The agency, in prescribing a FMVSS or regulation, considers available relevant motor vehicle safety data, and consults with other agencies, as it deems appropriate. Further, the statute mandates that in issuing any FMVSS or regulation, the agency considers whether the standard or regulation is ‘‘reasonable, practicable and appropriate for the particular type of motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment for which it is prescribed,’’ and whether such a standard will contribute to carrying out the purpose of the Act. The Secretary is authorized to invoke such rules and regulations as deemed necessary to carry out these requirements. Using this authority, the agency issued FMVSS No. 208, ‘‘Occupant crash protection,’’ to aid the agency in achieving many of its safety goals. This notice requests comments on the extension of the phase-in reporting requirements of this FMVSS related to the implementation of advanced air bags. Phase 1 of the VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:15 Nov 23, 2009 Jkt 220001 advanced air bag phase-in began September 1, 2003 with 100 percent compliance by September 1, 2005. Phase 2 of the advanced air bag phasein began September 1, 2007 with 100 percent compliance by September 1, 2009. Phase 3 of the advanced air bag phase-in began September 1, 2009 with 100 percent compliance by September 1, 2011. Description of the need for the information and proposed use of the information: NHTSA needs this information to ensure that vehicle manufacturers are certifying their applicable vehicles as meeting the advanced air bag requirements of FMVSS No. 208. NHTSA will use this information to determine whether a manufacturer has complied with the amended requirements during the phase-in period. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information): NHTSA estimates that 22 vehicle manufacturers will submit the required information. For each report, the manufacturer will provide, in addition to its identity, several numerical items of information. The information includes, but is not limited to, the following items: (a) Total number of vehicles manufactured for sale during the preceding production year, (b) Total number of vehicles manufactured during the production year that meet the regulatory requirements, and (c) Information identifying the vehicles (by make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN)) that have been certified as complying with the requirements. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information: NHTSA estimates that it will annually take each of the 22 affected manufacturers an average of 61 hours to comply with these requirements. Using a cost estimate of $35 per hour, this results in a total annual cost of $46,970 (22 manufacturers x 61 hours per manufacturer x $35 per hour).
