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 published a notice on March 2, 2016, in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period, and we received no public comments on the renewal of this information collection (81 FR 10952). Today’s notice provides a 30-day comment period in which public comments on the renewal of this information collection may be submitted to OMB. NHTSA asks for public comments on the following collection of information: Title: Labeling of Motor Vehicle Brake Fluid Containers in 49 CFR 571.116. OMB Control Number: 2127–0521. Form Numbers: 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: In 49 CFR 571.116, (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 116, ‘‘Motor Vehicle Brake Fluid’’) there are performance and design requirements for motor vehicle brake fluids and hydraulic system mineral VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:47 Sep 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 oils. In Section 5.2.2 of the standard, there are also labeling requirements for manufacturers and packagers of brake fluids, as well as packagers of hydraulic system mineral oils. Description of the Need for the Information and the Use of the Information: Properties of these fluids and their use necessitate the package labeling information specified in this standard. The information on the label of a container of motor vehicle brake fluid or hydraulic system mineral oil is necessary to insure: The contents of the container are clearly stated; these fluids are used for their intended purpose only; and the containers are properly disposed of when empty. Without this labeling requirement, there could be improper use or storage of these brake fluids, which would have dire safety consequences for the operators of vehicles or equipment in which they are used. 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 200 respondents annually, which are manufacturers and packagers of brake fluids and hydraulic mineral oils. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information: The estimated annual burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 200. Estimated Number of Responses (labels): 70,000,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 7,000 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.

ADDRESSES: Send comments regarding the burden estimate, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Office of Management and Budget, Attention: Desk Officer for the Office of the Secretary of Transportation, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Complete copies of each request for collection of information may be obtained at no charge from Johanna Lowrie, U.S. Department of Transportation, NHTSA, Room W43– 410, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC 20590.

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 entered and electronically returned to the agency. The consumer information collected will be used on the agency’s Web site (www.safercar.gov), 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:47 Sep 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 consumer publications, as well as for internal agency analyses and responses to consumer inquiries.
