OMB Control Number: 2127–0052. Type of Review: Request for public comments on a previously approved collection of information. Abstract: 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. This standard specifies labeling and performance requirements which apply to all manufacturers of brake hoses and brake hose end fittings, and to those who assemble brake hoses (49 CFR 571.106). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57649 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). Affected Public: Business or other for profit. Number of Respondents: 60. Number of Responses: 60. Total Annual Burden: 90 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: Consolidated Labeling Requirements for Motor Vehicles (except the VIN). OMB Control Number: 2127–0512. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: In order to ensure that manufacturers are complying with the FMVSS, NHTSA requires a number of information collections in four 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 that contrasts with its background, if 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 three digit 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:07 Dec 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 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. Affected Public: Businesses.
