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.

    Title: Brake Hose Manufacturers Identification.
    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 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 x 
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 x $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. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB 
receives it within 30 days of publication.
