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 who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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: Procedures for Selecting Lines to be Covered by the Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR 542) OMB Control Number: 2127–0539 Form Number: None. Affected Public: Motor vehicle manufacturers. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. 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. Estimated Annual Burden: 315 hours. Number of Respondents: 7. 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. As a result of this amendment, determination of high theft status is required only for LDTs manufactured on or after that date. There are seven vehicle manufacturers who produce E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 24 / Friday, February 4, 2011 / Notices LDTs. Generally, these manufacturers would not introduce more than one new LDT line in any year. NHTSA estimates the maximum number of responses to be seven. NHTSA estimates that the average hours per submittal are 45, for a total annual burden of 315 hours. NHTSA estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $57.06 per hour, for a total cost of approximately $18,000. 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 minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

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

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 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: Procedures for Selecting Lines to be Covered by the Theft 
Prevention Standard (49 CFR 542)
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0539
    Form Number: None.
    Affected Public: Motor vehicle manufacturers.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval 
date.
    Abstract: Manufacturers of light duty trucks must identify new 
model introductions that are likely to be high-theft lines as defined 
in 49 U.S.C. 33104.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 315 hours.
    Number of Respondents: 7.
    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.
    As a result of this amendment, determination of high theft status 
is required only for LDTs manufactured on or after that date. There are 
seven vehicle manufacturers who produce

[[Page 6513]]

LDTs. Generally, these manufacturers would not introduce more than one 
new LDT line in any year. NHTSA estimates the maximum number of 
responses to be seven. NHTSA estimates that the average hours per 
submittal are 45, for a total annual burden of 315 hours. NHTSA 
estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $57.06 per 
hour, for a total cost of approximately $18,000.
    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 minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
