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. in submission of responses). In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comment on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public. E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1 asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 50 / Tuesday, March 15, 2016 / Notices OMB Control Number: 2127–0629. Affected Public: Manufacturers that sell motor vehicles that have a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or less in the United States. Abstract: NHTSA’s mission is to save lives, prevent injury, and reduce motor vehicle crashes. Consumer information programs are an important tool for improving vehicle safety through market forces. For over 30 years, under its New Car Assessment Program, NHTSA has been providing consumers with vehicle safety information such as frontal and side crash results, crash avoidance performance test results, rollover propensity, and the availability of a wide array of safety features provided on each vehicle model. In addition, the agency has been using this safety feature information when responding to consumer inquiries and analyzing rulemaking petitions that requested the agency to mandate certain safety features. The information collected annually by the agency includes the following: • Vehicle make, model, body style, certification type, projected sales volume, availability date, etc., • Crashworthiness features (i.e., adjustable upper belt anchorages, seat belt pretensioners, load limiters, etc.), • Crash avoidance features (i.e., lane departure warning, forward collision warning, blind spot detection, crash imminent braking, dynamic brake support systems, etc.), • Automatic crash notification systems, • Event data recorders, • Automatic door locks (ADL), • Anti-theft devices, • Static Stability Factor (SSF) rating information, • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) restraint system, and • Side air bag information that would include whether the side air bags meet the requirements from the Technical Working Group (TWG) on Out-ofPosition occupants. NHTSA has another information collection to obtain data related to motor vehicle compliance with the agency’s Federal motor vehicle safety standards. Although the consumer information collection data is distinct and unique from the compliance data, respondents to both collections are the same. Thus, the consumer information collection is closely coordinated with the compliance collection to enable responders to assemble the data more efficiently. The burden is further made easier by sending out electronic files to the respondents in which the data is VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Mar 14, 2016 Jkt 238001 entered and electronically returned to the agency. Estimated Annual Burden: 800 hours. Number of Respondents: 21. The consumer information collected will be used on the agency’s www.safercar.gov Web site, in the ‘‘Purchasing with Safety in Mind: What to look for when buying a new vehicle’’ and ‘‘Buying a Safer Car for Child Passengers’’ brochures, in other consumer publications, as well as for internal agency analyses and response to consumer inquiries. Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the existing collection of information is still necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility, (2) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the existing information collection, (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and (4) 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.

information by referring to its OMB Control Number.

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. in submission of 
responses).
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public 
comment on the following proposed collection of information:
    Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public.

[[Page 13875]]

    OMB Control Number: 2127-0629.
    Affected Public: Manufacturers that sell motor vehicles that have a 
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or less in the 
United States.
    Abstract: NHTSA's mission is to save lives, prevent injury, and 
reduce motor vehicle crashes. Consumer information programs are an 
important tool for improving vehicle safety through market forces. For 
over 30 years, under its New Car Assessment Program, NHTSA has been 
providing consumers with vehicle safety information such as frontal and 
side crash results, crash avoidance performance test results, rollover 
propensity, and the availability of a wide array of safety features 
provided on each vehicle model. In addition, the agency has been using 
this safety feature information when responding to consumer inquiries 
and analyzing rulemaking petitions that requested the agency to mandate 
certain safety features.
    The information collected annually by the agency includes the 
following:
     Vehicle make, model, body style, certification type, 
projected sales volume, availability date, etc.,
     Crashworthiness features (i.e., adjustable upper belt 
anchorages, seat belt pretensioners, load limiters, etc.),
     Crash avoidance features (i.e., lane departure warning, 
forward collision warning, blind spot detection, crash imminent 
braking, dynamic brake support systems, etc.),
     Automatic crash notification systems,
     Event data recorders,
     Automatic door locks (ADL),
     Anti-theft devices,
     Static Stability Factor (SSF) rating information,
     Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) restraint 
system, and
     Side air bag information that would include whether the 
side air bags meet the requirements from the Technical Working Group 
(TWG) on Out-of-Position occupants.
    NHTSA has another information collection to obtain data related to 
motor vehicle compliance with the agency's Federal motor vehicle safety 
standards. Although the consumer information collection data is 
distinct and unique from the compliance data, respondents to both 
collections are the same. Thus, the consumer information collection is 
closely coordinated with the compliance collection to enable responders 
to assemble the data more efficiently. The burden is further made 
easier by sending out electronic files to the respondents in which the 
data is entered and electronically returned to the agency.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 800 hours.
    Number of Respondents: 21.
    The consumer information collected will be used on the agency's 
www.safercar.gov Web site, in the ``Purchasing with Safety in Mind: 
What to look for when buying a new vehicle'' and ``Buying a Safer Car 
for Child Passengers'' brochures, in other consumer publications, as 
well as for internal agency analyses and response to consumer 
inquiries.
    Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the existing collection of 
information is still necessary for the proper performance of the 
functions of the Department, including whether the information will 
have practical utility, (2) the accuracy of the Department's estimate 
of the burden of the existing information collection, (3) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected, and (4) 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.
