Mr. Mohamed’s telephone number is (202) 366–0307. Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring to its OMB Control Number. 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; (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6855 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 collection of information for which the agency is seeking approval from OMB: Title: 49 CFR 575—Consumer Information Regulations (sections 103 and 105). OMB Control Number: 2127–0049. Form Number: None. Affected Public: Motor vehicle manufacturers of light trucks and utility vehicles. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. Abstract: NHTSA must ensure that motor vehicle manufacturers comply with 49 CFR Part 575, Consumer Information Regulation part 575.103, Truck-camper loading and Part 575.105 Utility Vehicles. Part 575.103 requires that manufacturers of light trucks that are capable of accommodating slide-in campers provide information on the cargo weight rating and the longitudinal limits within which the center of gravity for the cargo weight rating should be located. Part 575.105 requires that manufacturers of utility vehicles affix a sticker in a prominent location alerting drivers that the particular handling and maneuvering characteristics of utility vehicles require special driving practices when these vehicles are operated. Estimated Annual Burden: 300 hours. Number of Respondents: 15. Based on prior years’ manufacturer submissions, the agency estimates that 15 responses will be submitted annually. Currently 12 light truck manufacturers comply with 49 CFR part 575. These manufacturers file one response annually and submit a additional response when they introduce a new model. Changes are rarely filed with the agency, but we estimate that at least three manufacturers will alter their information because of model changes. The light truck manufacturers gather only pre-existing data for the purposes of this regulation. Based on previous years’ manufacturer information, the agency estimates that light truck manufacturers use a total of 20 hours to gather and arrange the data in its proper format (9 hours), to distribute the information to its dealerships and attach labels to light trucks that are capable of accommodating slide-in campers (4 hours), and to print the labels and E:\FR\FM\09FEN1.SGM 09FEN1 6856 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 27 / Thursday, February 9, 2012 / Notices utility vehicle information in the owner’s manual or a separate document included with the owner’s manual (7 hours). The estimated annual burden hour is 300 hours. This number reflects the total responses (15) times the total hours (20). Prior years’ manufacturer information indicates that it takes an average of $35.00 per hour for professional and clerical staff to gather data, distribute and print material. Therefore, the agency estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $10,500 ($35.00 per hour x 300 burden hours). 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.

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;
    (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 collection of information for which 
the agency is seeking approval from OMB:
    Title: 49 CFR 575--Consumer Information Regulations (sections 103 
and 105).
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0049.
    Form Number: None.
    Affected Public: Motor vehicle manufacturers of light trucks and 
utility vehicles.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval 
date.
    Abstract: NHTSA must ensure that motor vehicle manufacturers comply 
with 49 CFR Part 575, Consumer Information Regulation part 575.103, 
Truck-camper loading and Part 575.105 Utility Vehicles. Part 575.103 
requires that manufacturers of light trucks that are capable of 
accommodating slide-in campers provide information on the cargo weight 
rating and the longitudinal limits within which the center of gravity 
for the cargo weight rating should be located. Part 575.105 requires 
that manufacturers of utility vehicles affix a sticker in a prominent 
location alerting drivers that the particular handling and maneuvering 
characteristics of utility vehicles require special driving practices 
when these vehicles are operated.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 300 hours.
    Number of Respondents: 15.
    Based on prior years' manufacturer submissions, the agency 
estimates that 15 responses will be submitted annually. Currently 12 
light truck manufacturers comply with 49 CFR part 575. These 
manufacturers file one response annually and submit a additional 
response when they introduce a new model. Changes are rarely filed with 
the agency, but we estimate that at least three manufacturers will 
alter their information because of model changes. The light truck

regulation. Based on previous years' manufacturer information, the 
agency estimates that light truck manufacturers use a total of 20 hours

distribute the information to its dealerships and attach labels to 
light trucks that are capable of accommodating slide-in campers (4 
hours), and to print the labels and

utility vehicle information in the owner's manual or a separate 
document included with the owner's manual (7 hours). The estimated 
annual burden hour is 300 hours. This number reflects the total 
responses (15) times the total hours (20). Prior years' manufacturer 
information indicates that it takes an average of $35.00 per hour for 
professional and clerical staff to gather data, distribute and print 
material. Therefore, the agency estimates that the cost associated with 
the burden hours is $10,500 ($35.00 per hour x 300 burden hours).
    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.
