SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

Abstract: If a motor vehicle or item of replacement motor vehicle equipment contains a defect related to motor vehicle safety or fails to comply with an applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standard, the manufacturer is required under 49 U.S.C. 30118 to furnish notification of the defect or noncompliance to the Secretary of Transportation, as well as to owners, purchasers, and dealers of the motor vehicle or replacement equipment, and to remedy the defect or noncompliance without charge to the owner. To ensure that manufacturers are meeting these and other responsibilities under the statutes and regulations administered by NHTSA, the agency issued 49 CFR part 566, Manufacturer Identification. The E:\FR\FM\03DEN1.SGM 03DEN1 emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 3, 2013 / Notices regulations in part 566 require manufacturers of motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment, other than tires, to which a Federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) applies, to submit to NHTSA, on a one-time basis, identifying information on themselves and a description of the products that they manufacture to those standards. The information that must be submitted includes: a) The full individual, partnership, or corporate name of the manufacturer; b) the residence address of the manufacturer and State of incorporation if applicable; and c) a description of each type of motor vehicle or of covered equipment manufactured by the manufacturer, including, for motor vehicles, the approximate ranges of gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) for each type. The regulations specify that the description may be of a general type, such as ‘‘passenger cars’’ or ‘‘brake fluid,’’ but that in the case of multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, and trailers, the description shall be specific enough to indicate the types of use for which the vehicles are intended, such as ‘‘tank trailer,’’ ‘‘motor home,’’ or ‘‘cargo van.’’ See 49 CFR 566.5(c)(1) and (2). The regulations further specify that in the case of motor vehicles produced in two or more stages, if the manufacturer is an incomplete vehicle manufacturer, the description shall so state and include a description indicating the stage of completion of the vehicle and, where known, the types of use for which the vehicle is intended, such as ‘‘Incomplete vehicle manufacturer— Chassis-cab intended for completion as a van-type truck.’’ See 49 CFR 566.5(c)(3). The regulations also specify that if the manufacturer is an intermediate manufacturer, or a final stage manufacturer of a vehicle manufactured in two or more stages, the description shall so state and include a brief description of the work performed, such as ‘‘Multipurpose passenger vehicles: Motor homes with GVWR from 8,000 to 12,000 pounds. Final-stage manufacturer—add body to bare chassis.’’ Ibid. The information must be submitted no later than 30 days after the manufacturer begins to manufacture motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment subject to the FMVSS. No specific form need be used for the submission of this information. A suggested form that can be used to submit the required information is included on pages 35 and 36 of a handbook entitled Requirements for Manufacturers of Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Equipment that can be VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Dec 02, 2013 Jkt 232001 accessed on the agency’s Web site at www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/maninfo. A description of the reporting requirement is included on pages 8 and 9 of the handbook. Manufacturers who have previously submitted identifying information must ensure that the information on file is accurate and complete by submitting revised information no later than 30 days after a change in the business that affects the validity of that information has occurred. In 2010, NHTSA received submissions of manufacturer identifying information under 49 CFR part 566 from 487 manufacturers. In 2011, the agency received 585 such submissions. In 2012, the agency received 526. Based on this volume of submissions, the agency projects that it will receive approximately 533 part 566 submissions from manufacturers in each of the next three years. Assuming that it will take a manufacturer 15 minutes to prepare a letter containing the requested information or to complete the suggested form, the agency estimates that 133 hours will be expended on an annual basis by all manufacturers required to submit part 566 identifying information. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Responses to the Collection of Information): The agency estimates that it will receive new submissions of manufacturer identifying information under part 566 from approximately 533 manufacturers of motor vehicles and regulated items of motor vehicle equipment per year. The manufacturers need only submit the required information on a one-time basis, with the proviso that they notify the agency of any changes in the information on file within 30 days from the date that any change in that information occurs. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden of the Collection of Information: 133 hours. Estimate of the Total Annual Costs of the Collection of Information: Assuming that the letter or form that is used to submit part 566 information is completed by company officers or employees compensated at an average rate of $30.00 per hour, the agency estimates that $3,990 will be expended on an annual basis by all manufacturers required to submit that information.

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;

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:
    Title: 49 CFR part 566 Manufacturer Identification.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0043.
    Affected Public: New manufacturers of motor vehicles and motor 
vehicle equipment subject to the Federal motor vehicle safety

    Abstract: If a motor vehicle or item of replacement motor vehicle 
equipment contains a defect related to motor vehicle safety or fails to 
comply with an applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standard, the 
manufacturer is required under 49 U.S.C. 30118 to furnish notification 
of the defect or noncompliance to the Secretary of Transportation, as

replacement equipment, and to remedy the defect or noncompliance 
without charge to the owner. To ensure that manufacturers are meeting 
these and other responsibilities under the statutes and regulations 
administered by NHTSA, the agency issued 49 CFR part 566, Manufacturer 
Identification. The

[[Page 72751]]

regulations in part 566 require manufacturers of motor vehicles or 
motor vehicle equipment, other than tires, to which a Federal motor 
vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) applies, to submit to NHTSA, on a one-
time basis, identifying information on themselves and a description of 
the products that they manufacture to those standards.
    The information that must be submitted includes: a) The full 
individual, partnership, or corporate name of the manufacturer; b) the 
residence address of the manufacturer and State of incorporation if 
applicable; and c) a description of each type of motor vehicle or of 
covered equipment manufactured by the manufacturer, including, for 
motor vehicles, the approximate ranges of gross vehicle weight ratings 
(GVWR) for each type. The regulations specify that the description may 
be of a general type, such as ``passenger cars'' or ``brake fluid,'' 
but that in the case of multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, and 
trailers, the description shall be specific enough to indicate the 
types of use for which the vehicles are intended, such as ``tank 
trailer,'' ``motor home,'' or ``cargo van.'' See 49 CFR 566.5(c)(1) and 
(2).
    The regulations further specify that in the case of motor vehicles 
produced in two or more stages, if the manufacturer is an incomplete 
vehicle manufacturer, the description shall so state and include a 
description indicating the stage of completion of the vehicle and, 
where known, the types of use for which the vehicle is intended, such 
as ``Incomplete vehicle manufacturer--Chassis-cab intended for 
completion as a van-type truck.'' See 49 CFR 566.5(c)(3). The 
regulations also specify that if the manufacturer is an intermediate 
manufacturer, or a final stage manufacturer of a vehicle manufactured 
in two or more stages, the description shall so state and include a 
brief description of the work performed, such as ``Multipurpose 
passenger vehicles: Motor homes with GVWR from 8,000 to 12,000 pounds. 
Final-stage manufacturer--add body to bare chassis.'' Ibid.
    The information must be submitted no later than 30 days after the 
manufacturer begins to manufacture motor vehicles or motor vehicle 
equipment subject to the FMVSS. No specific form need be used for the 
submission of this information. A suggested form that can be used to 
submit the required information is included on pages 35 and 36 of a 
handbook entitled Requirements for Manufacturers of Motor Vehicles and 
Motor Vehicle Equipment that can be accessed on the agency's Web site 
at www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/maninfo. A description of the reporting 
requirement is included on pages 8 and 9 of the handbook.
    Manufacturers who have previously submitted identifying information 
must ensure that the information on file is accurate and complete by 
submitting revised information no later than 30 days after a change in 
the business that affects the validity of that information has 
occurred.
    In 2010, NHTSA received submissions of manufacturer identifying 
information under 49 CFR part 566 from 487 manufacturers. In 2011, the 
agency received 585 such submissions. In 2012, the agency received 526. 
Based on this volume of submissions, the agency projects that it will 
receive approximately 533 part 566 submissions from manufacturers in 
each of the next three years. Assuming that it will take a manufacturer 
15 minutes to prepare a letter containing the requested information or 
to complete the suggested form, the agency estimates that 133 hours 
will be expended on an annual basis by all manufacturers required to 
submit part 566 identifying information.
    Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number 
and Proposed Frequency of Responses to the Collection of Information): 
The agency estimates that it will receive new submissions of 
manufacturer identifying information under part 566 from approximately 
533 manufacturers of motor vehicles and regulated items of motor 
vehicle equipment per year. The manufacturers need only submit the 
required information on a one-time basis, with the proviso that they 
notify the agency of any changes in the information on file within 30 
days from the date that any change in that information occurs.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden of 
the Collection of Information: 133 hours.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Costs of the Collection of 
Information: Assuming that the letter or form that is used to submit 
part 566 information is completed by company officers or employees 
compensated at an average rate of $30.00 per hour, the agency estimates 
that $3,990 will be expended on an annual basis by all manufacturers 
required to submit that information.
    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
