SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation, see 5 CFR 1320.8(d), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00119 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6513 (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following collection of information: Title: Names and Addresses of First Purchasers of Motor Vehicles. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. OMB Control Number: 2127–0044. Affected Public: Businesses or others for profit. Abstract: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30117(b), a manufacturer of a motor vehicle or tire (except a retread tire) must maintain a record of the name and address of the first purchasers of each vehicle or tire it produces and, to the extent prescribed by regulation of the Secretary, must maintain a record of the name and address of the first purchaser of replacement equipment (except a tire) that the manufacturer produces. Vehicle manufacturers presently collect and maintain purchaser information for business reasons, such as for warranty claims processing and marketing, and experience with this statutory requirement has shown that manufacturers have retained this information in a manner sufficient to enable them to expeditiously notify vehicle purchasers in the case of a safety recall. Based on industry custom and this experience, NHTSA therefore determined that the regulation mentioned in 49 U.S.C. 30117(b) was unnecessary as to vehicle manufacturers. As an aside, the requirement for maintaining tire purchaser information are contained in 49 CFR part 574, Tire Identification and Recordkeeping, and the burden of that information collection is not part of this information collection. Estimated annual burden: Zero. As a practical matter, vehicle manufacturers are presently collecting from their E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 6514 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 24 / Friday, February 4, 2011 / Notices dealers and then maintaining first purchaser information for their own commercial reasons.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected and; (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collections of information: Title: Petitions for Exemption from the Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR Part 543). OMB Control Number: 2127–0542. Form Number: None. Affected Public: Motor vehicle manufacturers. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. Abstract: Manufacturers of passenger vehicle lines may petition the agency for an exemption from Part 541 requirements, if the line is equipped with an anti-theft device as standard equipment and meets agency criteria. Device must be as effective as partsmarking. Estimated Annual Burden: 1,808. Number of Respondents: 8. 49 U.S.C. chapter 331 requires the Secretary of Transportation to promulgate a theft prevention standard to provide for the identification of certain motor vehicles and their major replacement parts to impede motor vehicle theft. 49 U.S.C. 33106 provides for an exemption to this identification process by petitions from manufacturers who equip covered vehicles with standard original equipment antitheft devices, which the Secretary determines are likely to be as effective in reducing or deterring theft as parts-marking. NHTSA may exempt a vehicle line from the parts marking requirement, if the manufacturer installs an antitheft device as standard equipment on the entire vehicle line for which it seeks an exemption and NHTSA determines that the antitheft device is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the parts-marking requirements. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 33106, after model year (MY) 2000, the number of new exemptions is contingent on a finding by the Attorney General as part of its long-range review of effectiveness. After consulting with DOJ, the agency decided it could continue granting one exemption per model year pending the results of the long-term review. 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 rating of 6,000 pounds or E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB 
for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register 
providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of 
the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of 
information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must 
be included in such a document. Under OMB's regulation, see 5 CFR 
1320.8(d), an agency must ask for public comment on the following:
    (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic 
submission of responses
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public 
comments on the following collection of information:
    Title: Names and Addresses of First Purchasers of Motor Vehicles.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information 
collection.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0044.
    Affected Public: Businesses or others for profit.
    Abstract: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30117(b), a manufacturer of a motor 
vehicle or tire (except a retread tire) must maintain a record of the 
name and address of the first purchasers of each vehicle or tire it 
produces and, to the extent prescribed by regulation of the Secretary, 
must maintain a record of the name and address of the first purchaser 
of replacement equipment (except a tire) that the manufacturer 
produces.
    Vehicle manufacturers presently collect and maintain purchaser 
information for business reasons, such as for warranty claims 
processing and marketing, and experience with this statutory 
requirement has shown that manufacturers have retained this information 
in a manner sufficient to enable them to expeditiously notify vehicle 
purchasers in the case of a safety recall. Based on industry custom and 
this experience, NHTSA therefore determined that the regulation

manufacturers. As an aside, the requirement for maintaining tire 
purchaser information are contained in 49 CFR part 574, Tire

commercial reasons. Therefore, the statutory requirement does not 
impose any additional burden.

manufacturers of motor vehicles that collect and keep first purchaser 
information.
