In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Consolidated Labeling Requirements for Motor Vehicles (except the VIN). OMB Control Number: 2127–0512. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the approval date. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses. Summary of the Collection of Information: 49 U.S.C. 30111 authorizes the issuance of Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS). The agency, in prescribing a FMVSS, considers available relevant motor vehicle safety data, and consults with other agencies, as it deems appropriate. Further, the statute mandates that in issuing any FMVSS, the agency considers whether the standard is ‘‘reasonable, practicable and appropriate for the particular type of motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment for which it is prescribed,’’ and whether such a standard will contribute to carrying out the purpose of the Act. The Secretary is authorized to invoke such rules, as deemed necessary to carry out these requirements. Using this authority, the agency issued the following FMVSS, specifying labeling requirements to aid the agency in achieving many of its safety goals: FMVSS No. 105, ‘‘Hydraulic and electric brake systems,’’ FMVSS No. 135, ‘‘Light vehicle brake systems,’’ FMVSS No. 205, ‘‘Glazing materials,’’ and FMVSS No. 209, ‘‘Seat belt assemblies.’’ This notice requests comments on the labeling requirements of these FMVSS. FMVSS No. 105, ‘‘Hydraulic and electric brake systems,’’ and FMVSS No. 135, ‘‘Light vehicle brake systems,’’ require that each vehicle shall have a brake fluid warning statement in letters at least one-eighth of an inch high on the master cylinder reservoirs. The lettering shall be permanently affixed, engraved or embossed; located so as to be visible by direct view; and of a color VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Sep 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 that contrasts with its background, if it not engraved or embossed. FMVSS No. 205, ‘‘Glazing materials,’’ provides labeling requirements for glazing and motor vehicle manufacturers. In accordance with the standard, NHTSA requires each new motor vehicle glazing manufacturer to request and be assigned a unique mark or number. This number is then used by the manufacturer as their unique company identification on their selfcertification label on each piece of motor vehicle glazing. As part of that certification label, the company must identify with the simple two or threedigit number assigned by the agency and the model of the glazing. In addition to these requirements, which apply to all glazing, certain specialty glazing items, such as standee windows in buses, roof openings, and interior partitions made of plastic require that the manufacturer affix a removable label to each item. The label specifies cleaning instructions, which will minimize the loss of transparency. Other information may be provided by the manufacturer but is not required. FMVSS No. 209, ‘‘Seat belt assemblies,’’ requires safety belts to be labeled with the year of manufacture, the model, and the name or trademark of the manufacturer (S4.1(j)). Additionally, replacement safety belts that are for use only in specifically stated motor vehicles must have labels or accompanying instruction sheets to specify the applicable vehicle models and seating positions (S4.1(k)). Seat belt assemblies installed as original equipment in new motor vehicles need not be required to be labeled with position/model information. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information): NHTSA anticipates that approximately 25 new prime glazing manufacturers per year will contact the agency and request a manufacturer identification number. These new glazing manufacturers must submit one letter, one time, identifying their company. In turn, the agency responds by assigning them a unique manufacturer number. For other collections in this notice, no response is necessary from manufacturers. These labels are only required to be placed on each master cylinder reservoir, glazing, and each safety belt intended for retail sale in the United Sates. Therefore, the number of respondents is not applicable. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Resulting From the Collection of Information: NHTSA estimates that all PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 manufacturers will need a total of 7,874 hours to comply with these requirements. 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. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c); delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.50. Raymond R. Posten, Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
