SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Alternative Fuels Rule, 16 CFR Part 309. OMB Control Number: 3084–0094. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection. Abstract: The Rule, which implements the Energy Policy Act of 1992, Public Law 102–486, requires disclosure of specific information on labels posted on fuel dispensers for nonliquid alternative fuels and on labels on Alternative Fueled Vehicles (AFVs). To ensure the accuracy of these disclosures, the Rule also requires that sellers maintain records substantiating product-specific disclosures they include on these labels. It is common practice for alternative fuel industry members to determine and monitor fuel ratings in the normal course of their business activities. This is because industry members must determine the fuel ratings of their products in order to monitor quality and to decide how to market them. ‘‘Burden’’ for PRA purposes is defined to exclude effort that would be expended regardless of any regulatory requirement. 5 CFR 1320.2(b)(2). Moreover, as originally anticipated when the Rule was promulgated in 1995, many of the information collection requirements and the originally-estimated hours were associated with one-time start up tasks of implementing standard systems and processes. Other factors also limit the burden associated with the Rule. Certification may be a one-time event or require only infrequent revision. Disclosures on electric vehicle fuel dispensing systems may be useable for several years. Nonetheless, there is still some burden associated with posting labels. There also will be some minimal burden associated with new or revised certification of fuel ratings and recordkeeping. The burden on vehicle manufacturers is limited because only newly-manufactured vehicles will require label posting and manufacturers produce very few new models each year. On December 10, 2012, the Commission sought comment on the information collection requirements and staff’s PRA burden estimates associated with the Rule (‘‘December 10, 2012 Notice’’). 77 FR 73467. No comments were received. Estimated Annual Burden: 1 1 The calculations underlying these estimates are detailed in the related December 10, 2012 Notice. PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Hours: 52,272 (2,240 hours for nonliquid alternative fuels + 50,032 hours for AFV manufacturers) Labor Costs: $1,090,918 ($55,756 for non-liquid alternative fuels + $1,035,162 for AFV manufacturers) Non-Labor Cost: $570,813 ($813 for non-liquid alternative fuels + $570,000 for AFV manufacturers and sellers of used AFVs) Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR Part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing a second opportunity for the public to comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the pre-existing clearance for the Rule. Request for Comment: You can file a comment online or on paper. For the Commission to consider your comment, we must receive it on or before April 4, 2013. Write ‘‘Paperwork Comment: FTC File No. P134200’’ on your comment. Your comment B including your name and your state B will be placed on the public record of this proceeding, including, to the extent practicable, on the public Commission Web site, at http://www.ftc.gov/os/ publiccomments.shtm. As a matter of discretion, the Commission tries to remove individuals’ home contact information from comments before placing them on the Commission Web site. Because your comment will be made public, you are solely responsible for making sure that your comment doesn’t include any sensitive personal information, like anyone’s Social Security number, date of birth, driver’s license number or other state identification number or foreign country equivalent, passport number, financial account number, or credit or debit card number. You are also solely responsible for making sure that your comment doesn’t include any sensitive health information, like medical records or other individually identifiable health information. In addition, don’t include any ‘‘[t]rade secret or any commercial or financial information which is obtained from any person and which is privileged or confidential * * *, ’’ as provided in Section 6(f) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 46(f), and FTC Rule 4.10(a)(2), 16 CFR 4.10(a)(2). If you want the Commission to give your comment confidential treatment, you must file it in paper See 77 FR at 73468. The non-labor cost estimate shown here, however, contains minor corrections for the calculation regarding AFV manufacturers and sellers of used AFVs and, accordingly, the cumulative non-labor cost total for all respondents. Based on an estimated 1,500,000 new and used AFVs each year at thirty-eight cents for each label (per industry sources), estimated annual AFV labeling cost is $570,000 ($0.38 × 1,500,000); total non-labor cost would thus be $570,813.

Fuels Rule should be addressed to Hampton Newsome, Attorney, Division

Commission, Room M-8102B, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 
20580, (202) 326-2889.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Alternative Fuels Rule, 16 CFR Part 309.
    OMB Control Number: 3084-0094.
    Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.
    Abstract: The Rule, which implements the Energy Policy Act of 1992, 
Public Law 102-486, requires disclosure of specific information on 
labels posted on fuel dispensers for non-liquid alternative fuels and 
on labels on Alternative Fueled Vehicles (AFVs). To ensure the accuracy 
of these disclosures, the Rule also requires that sellers maintain 
records substantiating product-specific disclosures they include on 
these labels.
    It is common practice for alternative fuel industry members to 
determine and monitor fuel ratings in the normal course of their 
business activities. This is because industry members must determine 
the fuel ratings of their products in order to monitor quality and to 
decide how to market them. ``Burden'' for PRA purposes is defined to 
exclude effort that would be expended regardless of any regulatory 
requirement. 5 CFR 1320.2(b)(2). Moreover, as originally anticipated 
when the Rule was promulgated in 1995, many of the information 
collection requirements and the originally-estimated hours were 
associated with one-time start up tasks of implementing standard 
systems and processes.
    Other factors also limit the burden associated with the Rule. 
Certification may be a one-time event or require only infrequent 
revision. Disclosures on electric vehicle fuel dispensing systems may 
be useable for several years. Nonetheless, there is still some burden 
associated with posting labels. There also will be some minimal burden 
associated with new or revised certification of fuel ratings and 
recordkeeping. The burden on vehicle manufacturers is limited because 
only newly-manufactured vehicles will require label posting and 
manufacturers produce very few new models each year.
    On December 10, 2012, the Commission sought comment on the 
information collection requirements and staff's PRA burden estimates 
associated with the Rule (``December 10, 2012 Notice''). 77 FR 73467. 
No comments were received.
    Estimated Annual Burden: \1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The calculations underlying these estimates are detailed in 
the related December 10, 2012 Notice. See 77 FR at 73468. The non-
labor cost estimate shown here, however, contains minor corrections 
for the calculation regarding AFV manufacturers and sellers of used 
AFVs and, accordingly, the cumulative non-labor cost total for all 
respondents. Based on an estimated 1,500,000 new and used AFVs each 
year at thirty-eight cents for each label (per industry sources), 
estimated annual AFV labeling cost is $570,000 ($0.38 x 1,500,000); 
total non-labor cost would thus be $570,813.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hours: 52,272 (2,240 hours for non-liquid alternative fuels + 
50,032 hours for AFV manufacturers)
    Labor Costs: $1,090,918 ($55,756 for non-liquid alternative fuels + 
$1,035,162 for AFV manufacturers)
    Non-Labor Cost: $570,813 ($813 for non-liquid alternative fuels + 
$570,000 for AFV manufacturers and sellers of used AFVs)
    Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR Part 1320, that implement 
the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing a second 
opportunity for the public to comment while seeking OMB approval to 
renew the pre-existing clearance for the Rule.

the Commission to consider your comment, we must receive it on or
