DOT’s complete Privacy Act Statement is available for review in a Federal Register notice published on April 11, 2000, (65 FR 19477–78). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Overview: Volvo Trucks North America (VTNA), has determined that certain model year (MY) 2017 Volvo VNL and 2017 Volvo VNM heavy duty trucks do not fully comply with paragraph S5.2(b) of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 120, Tire selection and rims and motor home/recreation vehicle trailer load carrying capacity information for motor vehicles with a GVWR of more than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds). VTNA filed a noncompliance report dated February 9, 2017, pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports. VTNA also petitioned NHTSA on February 28, 2017, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) and 49 CFR part 556, and revised its petition on April 29, 2017, to obtain an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. This notice of receipt of VTNA’s petition is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition. II. Vehicles Involved: Approximately 862 MY 2017 Volvo VNL and 2017 Volvo VNM heavy duty trucks, manufactured between August 15, 2016, and November 10, 2016, are potentially involved. III. Noncompliance: VTNA explains that the noncompliance is that the wheels on the subject vehicles incorrectly identify the rim size as 24.5″ x 8.25″ instead of 22.5″ x 8.25″, and therefore do not meet the requirements of paragraph S5.2(b) of FMVSS No. 120. Specifically, the marking error overstates the wheel diameter by 2″. IV. Rule Text: paragraph S5.2 of FMVSS No. 120 states: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Jul 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 S5.2 Rim marking. Each rim or, at the option of the manufacturer in the case of a single-piece wheel, wheel disc shall be marked with the information listed in paragraphs (a) through (e) of this paragraph, in lettering not less than 3 millimeters high, impressed to a depth or, at the option of the manufacturer, embossed to a height of not less than 0.125 millimeters . . . (b) The rim size designation, and in case of multipiece rims, the rim type designation. For example: 20 x 5.50, or 20 x 5.5. V. Summary of VTNA’s Petition: VTNA described the subject noncompliance and stated its belief that the noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. In support of its petition, VTNA referenced a letter to NHTSA, dated December 5, 2016, from Arconic Wheel and Transportation Products (Arconic), which is the rim manufacturer, and provided the following: 1. A 24.5″ inch tire will not seat on the rim; therefore, if someone tries to mount a 24.5″ tire to the rim, it will not hold air and therefore cannot be inflated. 2. When tires are replaced, the technician will select the tire based on the size and rating of the tire being replaced. When Volvo manufactured the vehicle, the tire used was a 22.5″ (i.e., the correct size for the rim). Therefore, the tires installed by Volvo have the correct size on the sidewall of the tire. 3. Volvo is required to list the tires size and inflation pressures on the certification label as required by 49 CFR 567. The information printed on the label is the correct size, a 22.5″ inch tire and reflects the tires that were installed when manufactured. The certification label is located inside the driver’s door and can be easily accessed by the tire installer. Volvo concluded by expressing the belief that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, and that its petition to be exempted from providing notification of the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and a remedy for the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120, should be granted. To view VTNA’s petition analyses in its entirety you can visit https:// www.regulations.gov by following the online instructions for accessing the dockets and by using the docket ID number for this petition shown in the heading of this notice. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject vehicles that VTNA no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after VTNA notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

    Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) has requested OMB to extend that agency's approval of the 
information collection that is incident to NHTSA's administration of 
the regulations at 49 CFR part 566 Manufacturer identification. Those 
regulations require manufacturers of motor vehicles or motor vehicle 
equipment, other than tires, to which a Federal motor vehicle safety 
standard (FMVSS) applies, to submit to NHTSA, on a one-time basis, 
identifying information on themselves and a description of the products 
that they manufacture to those standards. The information that must be 
submitted includes: (a) The full individual, partnership, or corporate 
name of the manufacturer; (b) the residence address of the manufacturer 
and State of incorporation, if applicable; and (c) a description of 
each type of motor vehicle or of covered equipment manufactured by the 
manufacturer, including, for motor vehicles, the approximate ranges of 
gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) for each type. The information must 
be submitted no later than 30 days after the manufacturer begins to 
manufacture motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment subject to the 
FMVSS. No specific form need be used for the submission of this

these submissions using an online portal on the above agency Web site. 
Manufacturers who have previously submitted identifying information 
must ensure that the information on file is accurate and complete by 
submitting revised information no later than 30 days after a change in 
the business that affects the validity of that information has 
occurred.
    This information collection is necessary to ensure that 
manufacturers of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment subject to 
the Federal motor vehicle safety standards identify themselves and 
their products to NHTSA so that NHTSA may contact them in the event 
that one of their products is suspected or found to contain a defect 
related to motor vehicle safety or fails to comply with an applicable 
FMVSS. Manufacturers of defective or noncompliant motor vehicles or 
replacement motor vehicle equipment are required under 49 U.S.C. 30118 
to furnish notification of the defect or noncompliance to the Secretary 
of Transportation, and as well as to owners, purchasers, and dealers of 
the motor vehicle or replacement equipment, and to remedy the defect or 
noncompliance without charge to the owner.
    Affected Public: New manufacturers of motor vehicles and motor 
vehicle equipment, other than tires, subject to the Federal motor 
vehicle safety standards.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 131 hours; $3,930.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.

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.
    A Comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 
days of publication.
