Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 164 / Friday, August 25, 2017 / Notices Vehicle Identification Number, a Customer Relations representative will be able to inform the vehicle operator of the specific vehicle configuration. Therefore, if contacted, BMW Customer Relations would be able to help the vehicle operator determine the correct tire pressures for use on the vehicle. Vehicle operators are able to contact BMW Customer Relations by: —Using the toll-free telephone number identified in the vehicle Owner’s Manual and the Service and Warranty Book —Using the in-vehicle iDriveTM controller and menu option for BMW Customer Relations —Contacting BMW AssistTM which can, if necessary, transfer the vehicle operator to BMW Customer Relations 3. Field Experience—Owner Contacts to BMW Customer Relations—BMW Customer Relations has not received any contacts from vehicle owners regarding these issues. Therefore, BMW is unaware that any vehicle owner has encountered these issues. Accidents/Injuries—BMW is unaware of any accidents or injuries that have occurred as a result of these issues. 4. Prior NHTSA Grants to Manufacturer Petitions—NHTSA has previously granted petitions for Inconsequential Noncompliance regarding FMVSS No. 110 involving vehicles for which the tire information placard contained tire size and tire pressure information which did not match the tires equipped on the vehicle. In some of these instances, even though the tire information placard identified a manufacturer’s recommended cold tire inflation pressure that was less than the value required for the tires equipped on the vehicle, the load carrying capacity of the equipped tires, at this lower tire pressure, was still sufficient and would not lead to a vehicle overload condition. 5. Vehicle Production—Vehicle production has been corrected to conform to FMVSS No. 110 Section 4.3(a), 4.3(C) and 4.3(d). BMW concluded by expressing the belief that the subject noncompliances are inconsequential as they relate 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 BMW’s petition analyses and any supplemental information 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Aug 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 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 BMW 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 BMW notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

The manufacturer must also remedy the defect or noncompliance without charge under 49 U.S.C. 30120. A manufacturer may be exempted from these requirements under 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) if the agency decides, upon application of the manufacturer, that the defect or noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. That section provides that the agency may only take such action after publishing notice in the Federal Register and providing an opportunity for any interested person to present information, views, and arguments. Regulations implementing this provision are found in 49 CFR part 556 Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance.

    Title: 49 CFR 556, Petitions for Inconsequentiality.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for profit entities.
    Abstract: If a motor vehicle or item of replacement motor vehicle 
equipment is determined to contain a defect related to motor vehicle 
safety or not to comply with an applicable Federal motor vehicle safety 
standard (FMVSS), the manufacturer is required under 49 U.S.C. 30118 to 
furnish NHTSA and owners, purchasers, and dealers of the motor vehicle 
or motor vehicle equipment with notification of the defect or 
noncompliance. The manufacturer must also remedy the defect or 
noncompliance without charge under 49 U.S.C. 30120.
    A manufacturer may be exempted from these requirements under 49 
U.S.C. 30118(d) if the agency decides, upon application of the 
manufacturer, that the defect or noncompliance is inconsequential as it 
relates to motor vehicle safety. That section provides that the agency 
may only take such action after publishing notice in the Federal 
Register and providing an opportunity for any interested person to 
present information, views, and arguments.
    Regulations implementing this provision are found in 49 CFR part 
556 Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance. The 
regulations provide that each petition submitted under part 556 must:
    (1) Be written in the English language;
    (2) Be submitted in three copies to NHTSA;
    (3) State the full name and address of the applicant, the nature of 
its organization (e.g., individual, partnership, or corporation) and 
the name of the State or county under the laws of which it is 
organized;
    (4) Describe the motor vehicle or item of replacement equipment, 
including the number involved and the period of production, and the 
defect or noncompliance concerning which an exemption is sought, and
    (5) Set forth all data, views, and arguments of the petitioner 
supporting the petition. See 49 CFR 556.4(b).
    The regulations also provide that the petition must be accompanied 
by three copies of the report of the defect or noncompliance that the 
manufacturer has compiled for submission to NHTSA under 49 CFR part 573 
Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports, and be submitted 
no later than 30 days after the manufacturer determines the existence 
of the defect or noncompliance or is notified that NHTSA has determined 
the existence of the defect or noncompliance. See 49 CFR 556.4(b)(6) 
and (c).
    The agency receives, on average, 30 petitions per year seeking 
exemptions under part 556 for an inconsequential defect or 
noncompliance. The agency estimates that it would take, on average, 
five hours for a manufacturer to compile, organize, and submit the 
information needed to support each petition.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 150 hours.
    Number of Respondents: 30.
    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
