Dr. Abigail Morgan, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Room W43–467, NVS–122, Washington, DC 20590. Telephone: (202) 366–6005. 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: (1) 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; (2) 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; (3) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (4) 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: Tire Identification and Recordkeeping. OMB Control Number: 2127–0050. Form Number: This collection of information uses no standard form. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information. Summary of the Collection of Information: 49 U.S.C. 30117(b) requires each tire manufacturer to collect and maintain records of the first purchasers of new tires. To carry out this mandate, 49 CFR part 574, Tire Identification and wreier-aviles on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:41 Nov 24, 2014 Jkt 235001 Recordkeeping, requires tire dealers and distributors to record the names and addresses of retail purchasers of new tires and the identification numbers(s) of the tires sold. A specific form is provided to tire dealers and distributors by tire manufacturers for recording this information. The completed forms are returned to the tire manufacturers where they are retained for not less than five years. Part 574 requires independent tire dealers and distributors to provide a registration form to consumers with the tire identification number(s) already recorded and information identifying the dealer/distributor. The consumer can then record his/her name and address and return the form to the tire manufacturer via U.S. mail, or alternatively, the consumer can provide this information electronically on the tire manufacturer’s Web site if the tire manufacturer provides this capability. Additionally, motor vehicle manufacturers are required to record the names and addresses of the first purchasers (for purposes other than resale), together with the identification numbers of the tires on the new vehicle, and retain this information for not less than five years. Description of the Need for the Information and the Use of the Information: The information is used by a tire manufacturer after it or the agency determines that some of its tires either fail to comply with an applicable safety standard or contain a safety related defect. With the information, the tire manufacturer can notify the first purchaser of the tire and provide them with any necessary information or instructions to remedy the noncompliance situation or safety defect. Without this information, efforts to identify the first purchaser of tires that have been determined to be defective or nonconforming pursuant to Sections 30118 and 30119 of Title 49 U.S.C. would be impeded. Further, the ability of the purchasers to take appropriate action in the interest of motor vehicle safety may be compromised. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information): We estimate that the collection of information affects 10 million respondents annually. This group consists of approximately 20 tire manufacturers, 59,000 new tire dealers and distributors, and 10 million consumers who choose to register their tire purchases with tire manufacturers. A response is required by motor vehicle manufacturers upon each sale of a new vehicle and by non-independent tire dealers with each sale of a new tire. A consumer may elect to respond when PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 purchasing a new tire from an independent tire dealer. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Resulting From the Collection of Information: The estimated burden is as follows: New tire dealers and distributors: 59,000. Consumers: 10,000,000. Total tire registrations (manual): 54,000,000. Total tire registration hours (manual): 225,000. Recordkeeping hours (manual): 25,000. Total annual tire registration and recordkeeping hours: 250,000. 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.

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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 70273 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 19 light truck manufacturers comply with 49 CFR part 575. These manufacturers file one response annually and submit an 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 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 $37.00 per hour for professional and clerical staff to gather data, distribute and print material. Therefore, the agency estimates that the annual cost associated with the burden hours is $11,100 ($37.00 per hour × 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 19 
light truck manufacturers comply with 49 CFR part 575. These 
manufacturers file one response annually and submit an 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 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 
$37.00 per hour for professional and clerical staff to gather data, 
distribute and print material. Therefore, the agency estimates that the 
annual cost associated with the burden hours is $11,100 ($37.00 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.
