In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collections of information: Title: Automobile Parts Content Labeling for 49 CFR part 583. OMB Control Number: 2127–0573. Form Number: The collection of this information uses no standard form. Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. Abstract: 49 CFR 583 establishes requirements for the disclosure of information relating to the countries of origin of the equipment of new passenger motor vehicles. This information will be used by NHTSA to determine whether manufacturers are complying with the American Automobile Labeling Act (49 U.S.C. 32304). The American Automobile Labeling Act requires all new passenger motor vehicles (including passenger cars, certain small buses, all light trucks and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less), to bear labels providing information about domestic and foreign content of their equipment. The labels, which are affixed to new passenger motor vehicles, serve as an aid to potential purchasers in the selection of new passenger motor vehicles by providing them with information about the value of the U.S./ Canadian and foreign parts of each vehicle, the countries of origin of the engine and transmission, and the site of the vehicle’s final assembly. Estimated Annual Burden: NHTSA anticipates approximately 20 vehicle manufacturers will be affected by these reporting requirements. NHTSA does not believe that any of these 20 manufacturers are a small business (i.e., one that employs less than 500 persons) since each manufacturer employs more than 500 persons. Manufacturers of new passenger motor vehicles, including passenger cars, certain small buses, and light trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less, must file a report annually. NHTSA estimates that the vehicle manufacturers will incur a total reporting annual hour burden and cost burden of 50,440 hours and $3,716,740 respectively. The amount includes annual burden hours incurred by multi- VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Sep 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 stage manufacturers and motor vehicle equipment suppliers. Number of Respondents: 20. 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.

Background: 49 U.S.C. 30101 et seq., as amended (‘‘the Safety Act’’), authorizes NHTSA to issue Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs). The Safety Act mandates that in issuing any FMVSS, the agency is to consider whether the standard is reasonable and appropriate for the particular type of motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment for which it is prescribed. Using this authority, FMVSS No. 106, Brake Hoses, was issued.

Prior to assembling or selling brake hoses, these entities must register their identification marks with NHTSA to comply with the labeling requirements of this standard. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the agency must obtain OMB approval to continue collecting labeling information. Currently, there are 2,418 manufacturers of brake hoses and end fittings, and brake hose assemblers, registered with NHTSA. However, about 60 respondents annually (annual average from 2014– 2016) request to have their identification marks added to or removed from the NHTSA database. To comply with this standard, each brake hose manufacturer or assembler must contact NHTSA and state that they want to be added to or removed from the NHTSA database of registered brake hose manufacturers. This action is usually initiated by the manufacturer with a brief written request via U.S. mail, facsimile, an email message, or a telephone call. Since September 1, 2015, the request can be submitted via the Manufacturer Portal: Online Web-based Submittal Center (https:// vpic.nhtsa.dot.gov). Currently, about 90 percent of requests are received electronically and 10 percent via mail. The estimated time for complying with the labeling requirements of this regulation is 1.5 hours per manufacturer. The corresponding total annual burden is estimated to be 90 hours (time burden of 1.5 hours per manufacturer × 60 manufacturers). The estimated manufacturer’s cost for complying with this regulation is $100 per hour. Therefore, the total annual cost is estimated to be $9,000 (time burden of 90 hours × $100 cost per hour).
