SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: Consolidated Labeling Requirements for 49 CFR parts Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Requirements, and 567 Certification. OMB Number: 2127–0510. Type of Request: Extension of a Currently Approved Collection. Abstract: Part 565 The regulations in part 565 specify the format, contents, and physical requirements for a vehicle identification number (VIN) system and its installation to simplify vehicle identification information retrieval and to increase the accuracy and efficiency of vehicle recall campaigns. The regulations require each vehicle manufactured in one stage to have a VIN that is assigned by the vehicle’s manufacturer. Each vehicle manufactured in more than one stage is to have a VIN assigned by the incomplete vehicle manufacturer. Each VIN must consist of 17 characters, including a check digit, in the ninth position, whose purpose is to verify the accuracy of any VIN transcription. The VIN must also incorporate the world manufacturer identifier or WMI assigned to the manufacturer by the competent authority in the country where the manufacturer is located. The WMI occupies the first three characters of the VIN for manufacturers that produce 1,000 or more vehicles of a specified type within a model year, and positions 1, 2, 3, 12, 13, and 14 of VINs assigned by manufacturers that produce less than 1,000 vehicles of a specified type per model year. The remaining characters of the VIN describe various vehicle attributes, such as make, model, PO 00000 Frm 00178 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and type, which vary depending on the vehicle’s type classification (i.e. passenger car, multipurpose passenger vehicle, truck, bus, trailer, motorcycle, low-speed vehicle), and identify the vehicle’s model year, plant code, and sequential production number. NHTSA has contracted with SAE International of Warrendale, Pennsylvania, to coordinate the assignment of WMIs to manufacturers in the United States. Each manufacturer of vehicles subject to the requirements of part 565 must submit, either directly or through an agent, the unique identifier for each make and type of vehicle it manufactures at least 60 days before affixing the first VIN using the identifier. Manufacturers are also required to submit to NHTSA information necessary to decipher the characters contained in their VINs, including amendments to that information, at least 60 days prior to offering for sale the first vehicle identified by a VIN containing that information or if information concerning vehicle characteristics sufficient to specify the VIN code is unavailable to the manufacturer by that date, then within one week after that information first becomes available. Part 567 The regulations in part 567 specify the content and location of, and other requirements for, the certification label to be affixed to a motor vehicle, as required by the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, as amended (the Vehicle Safety Act) (49 U.S.C. 30115) and the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act, as amended (the Cost Savings Act) (49 U.S.C. 30254 and 33109), to address certification-related duties and liabilities, and to provide the consumer with information to assist him or her in determining which of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 571), Bumper Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 581, and Federal Theft Prevention Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 541) are applicable to the vehicle. The regulations pertain to manufacturers of motor vehicles to which one or more standards are applicable, including persons who alter such vehicles prior to their first retail sale, and to Registered Importers of vehicles not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards that are determined eligible for importation by NHTSA, based on the vehicles’ capability of being modified to conform to those standards. The regulations require each manufacturer to affix to each vehicle, in a prescribed location, a E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 249 / Tuesday, December 30, 2014 / Notices label that, among other things, identifies the vehicle’s manufacturer (defined as the person who actually assembles the vehicle), the vehicle’s date of manufacture, and the statement that the vehicle complies with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards and, where applicable, Bumper and Theft Prevention Standards in effect on the date of manufacture. The label must also include the vehicle’s gross vehicle and gross axle weight ratings (GVWR and GAWRs), vehicle identification number, and vehicle type classification (i.e., passenger car, multipurpose passenger vehicle, truck, bus, trailer, motorcycle, low-speed vehicle). The regulations specify other labelling requirements for incomplete vehicle, intermediate, and final-stage manufacturers of vehicles built in two or more stages, such as commercial trucks that are built by adding work performing components, such as a cargo box or cement mixer, to a previously manufactured chassis or chassis-cab, and to persons who alter previously certified vehicles, other than by the addition, substitution, or removal of readily attachable components such as mirrors or tire and rim assemblies, or minor finishing operation such as painting, before the first purchase of the vehicle for purposes other than resale.

Identification Number (VIN) Requirements, and 567 Certification.
    OMB Number: 2127-0510.
    Type of Request: Extension of a Currently Approved Collection.
    Abstract:

Part 565

    The regulations in part 565 specify the format, contents, and 
physical requirements for a vehicle identification number (VIN) system 
and its installation to simplify vehicle identification information 
retrieval and to increase the accuracy and efficiency of vehicle recall 
campaigns. The regulations require each vehicle manufactured in one 
stage to have a VIN that is assigned by the vehicle's manufacturer. 
Each vehicle manufactured in more than one stage is to have a VIN 
assigned by the incomplete vehicle manufacturer. Each VIN must consist 
of 17 characters, including a check digit, in the ninth position, whose 
purpose is to verify the accuracy of any VIN transcription. The VIN 
must also incorporate the world manufacturer identifier or WMI assigned 
to the manufacturer by the competent authority in the country where the 
manufacturer is located. The WMI occupies the first three characters of 
the VIN for manufacturers that produce 1,000 or more vehicles of a 
specified type within a model year, and positions 1, 2, 3, 12, 13, and 
14 of VINs assigned by manufacturers that produce less than 1,000 
vehicles of a specified type per model year. The remaining characters 
of the VIN describe various vehicle attributes, such as make, model, 
and type, which vary depending on the vehicle's type classification 
(i.e. passenger car, multipurpose passenger vehicle, truck, bus, 
trailer, motorcycle, low-speed vehicle), and identify the vehicle's 
model year, plant code, and sequential production number. NHTSA has 
contracted with SAE International of Warrendale, Pennsylvania, to 
coordinate the assignment of WMIs to manufacturers in the United 
States. Each manufacturer of vehicles subject to the requirements of 
part 565 must submit, either directly or through an agent, the unique 
identifier for each make and type of vehicle it manufactures at least 
60 days before affixing the first VIN using the identifier. 
Manufacturers are also required to submit to NHTSA information 
necessary to decipher the characters contained in their VINs, including 
amendments to that information, at least 60 days prior to offering for 
sale the first vehicle identified by a VIN containing that information 
or if information concerning vehicle characteristics sufficient to 
specify the VIN code is unavailable to the manufacturer by that date, 
then within one week after that information first becomes available.

Part 567

    The regulations in part 567 specify the content and location of, 
and other requirements for, the certification label to be affixed to a 
motor vehicle, as required by the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle 
Safety Act, as amended (the Vehicle Safety Act) (49 U.S.C. 30115) and 
the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act, as amended (the 
Cost Savings Act) (49 U.S.C. 30254 and 33109), to address 
certification-related duties and liabilities, and to provide the 
consumer with information to assist him or her in determining which of 
the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 
571), Bumper Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 581, and Federal Theft 
Prevention Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 541) are applicable to 
the vehicle. The regulations pertain to manufacturers of motor vehicles 
to which one or more standards are applicable, including persons who 
alter such vehicles prior to their first retail sale, and to Registered 
Importers of vehicles not originally manufactured to comply with all 
applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards that are determined 
eligible for importation by NHTSA, based on the vehicles' capability of 
being modified to conform to those standards. The regulations require 
each manufacturer to affix to each vehicle, in a prescribed location, a
