Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 21796 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 75 / Monday, April 20, 2015 / Notices Abstract: The Locomotive Boiler Inspection Act (LBIA) of 1911 required each railroad subject to the Act to file copies of its rules and instructions for the inspection of locomotives. The original LBIA was expanded to cover the entire steam locomotive and tender and all its parts and appurtenances. This Act then requires carriers to make inspections and to repair defects to ensure the safe operation of steam locomotives. The collection of information is used by tourist or historic railroads and by locomotive owners/ operators to provide a record for each day a steam locomotive is placed in service, as well as a record that the required steam locomotive inspections are completed. The collection of information is also used by FRA Federal inspectors to verify that necessary safety inspections and tests have been completed and to ensure that steam locomotives are indeed ‘‘safe and suitable’’ for service and are properly operated and maintained. Type of Request: Extension without Change of a Currently Approved Information Collection. Affected Public: Businesses (Railroads). Form(s): FRA–1, FRA–2, FRA–3, FRA–4, FRA–5, FRA–19. Annual Estimated Burden: 18,665 hours. Title: Control of Alcohol and Drug Use in Railroad Operations. OMB Control Number: 2130–0526. Abstract: The information collection requirements contained in preemployment and ‘‘for cause’’ testing regulations are intended to ensure a sense of fairness and accuracy for railroads and their employees. The principal information—evidence of unauthorized alcohol or drug use—is used to prevent accidents by screening personnel who perform safety-sensitive service. FRA uses the information to measure the level of compliance with regulations governing the use of alcohol or controlled substances. Elimination of this problem is necessary to prevent accidents, injuries, and fatalities of the nature already experienced and further reduce the risk of a truly catastrophic accident. Type of Request: Extension without Change of a Currently Approved Information Collection. Affected Public: Businesses (Railroads). Form(s): FRA F 6180.73, 6180.74, 6180.94A, 61880.94B. Annual Estimated Burden: 31,797 hours.

Comments may also be sent via email to OMB at the following address: oira_submissions@ omb.eop.gov. Comments are invited on the following: Whether the proposed collections of information are 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 estimates of the burden of the proposed information collections; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collections of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

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 E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 75 / Monday, April 20, 2015 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 and; (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 collections of information: Title: 49 CFR 571.403, ‘‘Platform lift systems for motor vehicles,’’ and 49 CFR 571.404, ‘‘Platform lift installations in motor vehicles.’’ OMB Control Number: 2127–0621. Form Number: None. Background FMVSS No. 403 establishes minimum performance standards for platform lifts intended for installation in motor vehicles to assist wheelchair users and other persons with limited mobility in entering and leaving a vehicle. The standard’s purpose is to prevent injuries and fatalities to passengers and bystanders during the operation of platform lifts. The related standard FMVSS No. 404, places specific requirements on vehicle manufacturers or alterers who install platform lifts in new vehicles. Lift manufacturers must certify that their lifts meet the requirements of FMVSS No. 403 and must declare in the owner’s manual, the installation instructions, and on the operating instruction label that the lift is certified. Certification of compliance with FMVSS No. 404 is included on the vehicle certification label required on all motor vehicles under part 567 of 49 CFR. As a result of the requirements in the two standards, lift manufacturers must produce an insert that is placed in the vehicle owner’s manual. They also must produce lift installation instructions, as well as either one or two labels, to be placed near the controls for the lift. The latter illustrate and describe procedures for operating the lift. Our estimates of burden and cost to lift manufacturers to meet these requirements are given below.

Background

    FMVSS No. 403 establishes minimum performance standards for 
platform lifts intended for installation in motor vehicles to assist 
wheelchair users and other persons with limited mobility in entering 
and leaving a vehicle. The standard's purpose is to prevent injuries 
and fatalities to passengers and bystanders during the operation of 
platform lifts. The related standard FMVSS No. 404, places specific 
requirements on vehicle manufacturers or alterers who install platform 
lifts in new vehicles. Lift manufacturers must certify that their lifts 
meet the requirements of FMVSS No. 403 and must declare in the owner's 
manual, the installation instructions, and on the operating instruction 
label that the lift is certified. Certification of compliance with 
FMVSS No. 404 is included on the vehicle certification label required 
on all motor vehicles under part 567 of 49 CFR. As a result of the 
requirements in the two standards, lift manufacturers must produce an 
insert that is placed in the vehicle owner's manual. They also must 
produce lift installation instructions, as well as either one or two 
labels, to be placed near the controls for the lift. The latter 
illustrate and describe procedures for operating the lift.
    Our estimates of burden and cost to lift manufacturers to meet 
these requirements are given below. There is no burden to the general 
public.
    Respondents: Platform lift manufacturers and vehicle manufacturers/
alterers that install platform lifts in new motor vehicles before first 
vehicle sale.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10.

Estimated Annual Burden

    [ssquf] Estimated burden for lift manufacturers to produce an 
insert for vehicle owner manuals stating the lift's platform operating 
volume, maintenance schedule, and lift operating procedures, as 
applicable: 10 manufacturers x 24 hrs. amortized over 5 yrs. = 48 hours 
per year.
    [ssquf] Estimated burden for lift manufacturers to produce 
installation instructions identifying the types of vehicles on which a 
lift is designed to be installed: 10 manufacturers x 24 hrs. amortized 
over 5 yrs. = 48 hours per year.
    [ssquf] Estimated burden for lift manufacturers to produce a 
placard and/or labeling on or near the lift control panel to identify 
the operating functions: 10 manufacturers x 24 hrs. amortized over 5 
yrs. = 48 hours per year.
    [ssquf] Estimated burden for lift manufacturers to produce a 
placard and/or labeling on or near the lift control panel to identify 
the lift backup operating procedures: 10 manufacturers x 24 hrs. 
amortized over 5 yrs. = 48 hours per year.

Estimated Cost to Lift Manufacturers To Produce

    [ssquf] Owner's manual insert--27, 398 lifts x $0.04 per page x 1 
page = $1,095.92.
    [ssquf] Lift installation instructions--27,398 lifts x $0.04 per 
page x 1 page \1\ = $1,095.92.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Although lift installation instructions are considerably 
more than one page, lift manufacturers already provide lift 
installation instructions in the normal course of business and one 
additional page should be adequate to allow the inclusion of 
specific information required by NHTSA regulations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [ssquf] Labeling/placard for lift operating procedures--27,398 
lifts x $0.13 per label = $3,561.74.
    [ssquf] Labeling/placard for lift backup operating procedures--
27,398 lifts x $0.13 per label = $3,561.74.
    Total estimated number of respondents: 10.
    Total estimated hour burden per year = 192 hours.
    Total estimated annual cost = $9,315.32.
    Public Comments: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this 
information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection 
of information is necessary for the Department's performance; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the Department to 
enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; 
and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the 
quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or 
include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this 
information collection.
