Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 159 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 / Notices denial’ ’’ of his withdrawal request. Id. at 3 (quoting 5 U.S.C. 555(e)). Because the Office of Diversion Control had not complied with section 555(e), the then-Administrator denied the Government’s Request for Final Agency Action. Id. The thenAdministrator returned the record to the Government’s Counsel, with the instruction that its Request should not be re-submitted until such time as the Office of Diversion Control complied with 5 U.S.C. 555(e) and explained why Applicant has not demonstrated good cause to withdraw his application, as well as why the withdrawal is not in the public interest. Id. On August 7, 2015, Government Counsel filed a Request for Dismissal of Order to Show Cause. Therein, Government Counsel represents that on July 30, 3015, the Office of Diversion Control had decided to allow Respondent to withdraw his application. The Government therefore requests an Order dismissing the Show Cause Order. Because the Office of Diversion Control has granted Respondent’s withdrawal request, there is no longer an application to act upon and the case is now moot. See Thomas E. Mitchell, 76 FR 20032, 20033 (2011). Accordingly, I grant the Government’s Request and dismiss the Order to Show Cause. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that the Order to Show Cause issued to Matthew Valentine/Liar Catchers be, and it hereby is, dismissed. This Order is effective immediately. Dated: August 10, 2015. Chuck Rosenberg, Acting-Administrator.

Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of Justice. 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Auto recyclers, junk yards and salvage yards are required to report information into NMVTIS. The Anti-Car Theft Act, defines junk and salvage yards ‘‘as individuals or entities engaged in the business of acquiring or owning junk or salvage automobiles for resale in their entirety or as spare parts or for rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.’’ Included in this definition are scrap-vehicle shredders and scrapmetal processors, as well as ‘‘pull- or pick-apart yards,’’ salvage pools, salvage auctions, and other types of auctions, businesses, and individuals that handle salvage vehicles (including vehicles declared a ‘‘total loss’’). Abstract: Reporting information on junk and salvage vehicles to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS)— supported by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)—is required by federal law. Under federal law, junk and salvage yards must report certain information to NMVTIS on a monthly basis. This legal requirement has been in place since March 2009, following the promulgation of regulations (28 CFR part 25) to implement the junk- and salvage-yard reporting provisions of the Anti-Car Theft Act (codified at 49 U.S.C. 30501–30505). Accordingly, a junk or salvage yard within the United States must, on a monthly basis, provide an inventory to NMVTIS of the junk or salvage automobiles that it obtained (in whole or in part) in the prior month. 28 CFR 25.56(a). An NMVTIS Reporting Entity includes any individual or entity that meets the federal definition, found in the NMVTIS regulations at 28 CFR 25.52, for a ‘‘junk yard’’ or ‘‘salvage yard.’’ According to those regulations, a junk yard is defined as ‘‘an individual or entity engaged in the business of acquiring or owning junk automobiles for—(1) Resale in their entirety or as spare parts; or (2) Rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.’’ The regulations define a salvage yard as ‘‘an VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:02 Aug 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 individual or entity engaged in the business of acquiring or owning salvage automobiles for—(1) Resale in their entirety or as spare parts; or (2) Rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.’’ These definitions include vehicle remarketers and vehicle recyclers, including scrap vehicle shredders and scrap metal processors as well as ‘‘pullor pick-apart yards,’’ salvage pools, salvage auctions, used automobile dealers, and other types of auctions handling salvage or junk vehicles (including vehicles declared by any insurance company to be a ‘‘total loss’’ regardless of any damage assessment). Businesses that operate on behalf of these entities or individual domestic or international salvage vehicle buyers, sometimes known as ‘‘brokers’’ may also meet these regulatory definitions of salvage and junk yards. It is important to note that industries not specifically listed in the junk yard or salvage yard definition may still meet one of the definitions and, therefore, be subject to the NMVTIS reporting requirements. An individual or entity meeting the junk yard or salvage yard definition is subject to the NMVTIS reporting requirements if that individual or entity handles 5 or more junk or salvage motor vehicles per year and is engaged in the business of acquiring or owning a junk automobile or a salvage automobile for—‘‘(1) Resale in their entirety or as spare parts; or (2) Rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.’’ Reporting entities can determine whether a vehicle is junk or salvage by referring to the definitions provided in the NMVTIS regulations at 28 CFR 25.52. An NMVTIS Reporting Entity is required to report specific information to NMVTIS within one month of receiving such a vehicle, and failure to report may result in assessment of a civil penalty of $1,000 per violation. 5 An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are currently approximately 8,000 businesses that report on a regular basis into NMVTIS. The estimate for the average amount of time for each business to report varies: 30–60 minutes (estimated). The states and insurance companies already are capturing most of the data needed to be reported, and the reporting consists of electronic, batch uploaded information. So, for those automated companies the reporting time is negligible. For smaller junk and salvage yard operators who would enter the data manually, it is estimated that it will take respondents an average of 30–60 minutes per month to respond.

Klickitat County Port District No. 1, Civil Action No. 1:15– CV–03051–RMP. The United States initiated this civil action on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency against the Klickitat County Port District No. 1 (the ‘‘Port’’) pursuant to Section 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. 9607, to recover response costs incurred in connection with the release and threatened release of hazardous substances from the Recycled Aluminum Metals Company Aluminum Waste Disposal Site (the ‘‘Site’’) located in Klickitat County, Washington. Between 1979 and 1991 the Port continuously owned the Site during which time now-defunct lessees deposited waste from secondary aluminum smelting operations into an unlined landfill on the Site. In 2010, the United States conducted a removal action to prevent hazardous substances from leaching into the groundwater and threatening human populations.

Overview of This Information Collection

    1. Type of Information Collection: Extension of currently approved 
collection.
    2. The Title of the Form/Collection: National Motor Vehicle Title 
Information System (NMVTIS)
    3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection: None. Bureau of Justice 
Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of 
Justice.
    4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Primary: Auto recyclers, junk yards and 
salvage yards are required to report information into NMVTIS. The Anti-
Car Theft Act, defines junk and salvage yards ``as individuals or 
entities engaged in the business of acquiring or owning junk or salvage 
automobiles for resale in their entirety or as spare parts or for 
rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.'' Included in this definition are 
scrap-vehicle shredders and scrap-metal processors, as well as ``pull- 
or pick-apart yards,'' salvage pools, salvage auctions, and other types 
of auctions, businesses, and individuals that handle salvage vehicles 
(including vehicles declared a ``total loss'').
    Abstract: Reporting information on junk and salvage vehicles to the 
National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS)--supported by 
the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)--is required by federal law. Under 
federal law, junk and salvage yards must report certain information to 
NMVTIS on a monthly basis. This legal requirement has been in place 
since March 2009, following the promulgation of regulations (28 CFR 
part 25) to implement the junk- and salvage-yard reporting provisions 
of the Anti-Car Theft Act (codified at 49 U.S.C. 30501-30505). 
Accordingly, a junk or salvage yard within the United States must, on a 
monthly basis, provide an inventory to NMVTIS of the junk or salvage 
automobiles that it obtained (in whole or in part) in the prior month. 
28 CFR 25.56(a).
    An NMVTIS Reporting Entity includes any individual or entity that 
meets the federal definition, found in the NMVTIS regulations at 28 CFR 
25.52, for a ``junk yard'' or ``salvage yard.'' According to those 
regulations, a junk yard is defined as ``an individual or entity 
engaged in the business of acquiring or owning junk automobiles for--
(1) Resale in their entirety or as spare parts; or (2) Rebuilding, 
restoration, or crushing.'' The regulations define a salvage yard as 
``an individual or entity engaged in the business of acquiring or 
owning salvage automobiles for--(1) Resale in their entirety or as 
spare parts; or (2) Rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.'' These 
definitions include vehicle remarketers and vehicle recyclers, 
including scrap vehicle shredders and scrap metal processors as well as 
``pull- or pick-apart yards,'' salvage pools, salvage auctions, used 
automobile dealers, and other types of auctions handling salvage or 
junk vehicles (including vehicles declared by any insurance company to 
be a ``total loss'' regardless of any damage assessment). Businesses 
that operate on behalf of these entities or individual domestic or 
international salvage vehicle buyers, sometimes known as ``brokers'' 
may also meet these regulatory definitions of salvage and junk yards. 
It is important to note that industries not specifically listed in the 
junk yard or salvage yard definition may still meet one of the 
definitions and, therefore, be subject to the NMVTIS reporting 
requirements.
    An individual or entity meeting the junk yard or salvage yard 
definition is subject to the NMVTIS reporting requirements if that 
individual or entity handles 5 or more junk or salvage motor vehicles 
per year and is engaged in the business of acquiring or owning a junk 
automobile or a salvage automobile for--``(1) Resale in their entirety 
or as spare parts; or (2) Rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.'' 
Reporting entities can determine whether a vehicle is junk or salvage 
by referring to the definitions provided in the NMVTIS regulations at 
28 CFR 25.52. An NMVTIS Reporting Entity is required to report specific 
information to NMVTIS within one month of receiving such a vehicle, and 
failure to report may result in assessment of a civil penalty of $1,000 
per violation.
    5 An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of 
time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are 
currently approximately 8,000 businesses that report on a regular basis 
into NMVTIS. The estimate for the average amount of time for each 
business to report varies: 30-60 minutes (estimated). The states and 
insurance companies already are capturing most of the data needed to be 
reported, and the reporting consists of electronic, batch uploaded 
information. So, for those automated companies the reporting time is 
negligible. For smaller junk and salvage yard operators who would enter 
the data manually, it is estimated that it will take respondents an 
average of 30-60 minutes per month to respond.
    6 An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with 
the collection: An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) 
associated with the collection is 48,000 to 96,000 hours
    Total Annual Reporting Burden:
8,000 x 30 minutes per month (12 times per year) = 48,000
8,000 x 60 minutes per month (12 times per year) = 96,000
