Proposed Collection of Information: Claim Against the United States for the Proceeds of a Government Check, 60274-60275 [2017-27312]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 60274 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 242 / Tuesday, December 19, 2017 / Notices following the Voluntary Guidance, generating a self-assessment, and voluntarily making a summary of that self-assessment public. In summary, NHTSA believes there will be 60 respondents annually during the three years covered by this information collection request. The modification from the previous estimate considers the addition of new entrants as well as the fact that many entities have already begun testing automated vehicles and thus are already included in the figure. The adjustments of burden hours from the previously approved collection are a result of the following changes to the Voluntary Guidance: reducing the number of priority safety design elements for consideration from 15 to 12, removing data sharing from the data element in the Voluntary Guidance, and limiting the scope to SAE system levels 3–5 rather than levels 2–5. NHTSA estimates the total burden associated with conforming to the documentation and disclosure recommendations contained in the Voluntary Guidance would be 1,435 hours per manufacturer or entity per year. The estimated cost for following this Voluntary Guidance is $100 per hour. Therefore, the total annual cost is estimated to be $8,610,000 (1,435 hours × 60 respondents × $100/hour). Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 60. Estimated Number of Responses: 60. Annual Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 86,100 hours. Frequency of Collection: Annual. NHTSA published a notice announcing the proposed collection of information pursuant to 44 U.S.C 3501 et seq. and providing a 60-day comment period (81 FR 43450). The Agency received 4 comments on this notice. Two of the four comments did not pertain to Automated Driving Systems, vehicles, automation technology, or the estimated burden associated with Automated Driving Systems 2.0. Rather, they provided comments regarding various other Congressional Acts previously passed. One of the four comments pertained to the Automated Driving Systems 2.0 document in general with no comments regarding paperwork burden. The final of the four comments cited support for the implementation of ADS 2.0 and urges entities to implement the Voluntary Guidance. The commenter also maintains that ‘‘information sharing leads to transparency, which leads to public trust, and should be a clear part of a duty and responsibility to advance the safety of vehicles.’’ However, the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Dec 18, 2017 Jkt 244001 commenter offers the information collection could be ‘‘inadequate for the agency to perform its functions related to the safety of ADSs.’’ This is based on the Department’s removal of safety elements pertaining to Ethical Considerations, Privacy, and removal of Data Sharing from the Data Collection safety element as well as removing Level 2 ADSs from the scope of the Voluntary Guidance. NHTSA and the Department focused the Voluntary Guidance on SAE Automation Levels 3 through 5 in order to focus on systems in which the system takes over full control of the vehicle, including monitoring of the environment. However, parts of the Voluntary Guidance could be applied to any level of automation, and NHTSA recommends companies use them for safe testing and development. With respect to the changes in the safety elements, NHTSA reviewed the safety elements from the Federal Automated Vehicles Policy in conjunction with public comments and focused elements on those that affect motor vehicle safety, have consensus around acceptable considerations, and have feasible metrics for evaluation. As privacy is not directly relevant to motor vehicle safety and, generally, is under the protection of the Federal Trade Commission, this safety element was removed from the Voluntary Guidance. Ethical considerations, while essential to automated driving technology development, there is currently no consensus around acceptable ethical decision-making, and there are no metrics against which to evaluate. NHTSA plans to work with stakeholders to further research this area. Data sharing was removed from a safety element, as the agency has chosen to focus on data recording needed for crash reconstruction. NHTSA is working with industry to voluntarily collaborate on data sharing and appropriate new safety metric development. As such, NHTSA believes that removal of these safety elements and components does not diminish the usefulness of data that would be voluntarily disclosed through the Voluntary Safety Self-Assessment. And though these safety elements are currently not in the Voluntary Guidance, NHTSA continues to emphasize the importance of all these aspects of ADSs throughout design, testing, and deployment of ADSs. It is important to note that the Automated Driving Systems 2.0: A Vision for Safety was effective on September 15, 2017, and is intended to be updated frequently. Therefore, the burden hours outlined in the 60-day notice and this subsequent 30-day PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 notice are reflective of that version of the policy. If the agency significantly changes the burden with any future updates, further modifications will be sought. The 60-day Federal Register notice published on September 15, 2017 estimated 50 respondents annually based on the number of entities registered to test in California as of August 30, 2017. The number of entities registered to test in California has since increased to 45 as of November 16, 2017. Thus, NHTSA has increased the estimated number of respondents annually from 50 to 60. The actual number of burden hours estimated per entity each year has not changed since the September 15, 2017 Federal Register notice. That notice (81 FR 43450) detailed modifications to the calculation of burden hours (based on the limiting of scope and removal of safety elements) since the January 2017 OMB clearance for information collection. Considering the increase in number of respondents and the same number of estimated burden hours per respondent, the total number of burden hours increased from 71,750 hours to 86,100 hours, and the total estimated annual cost from $7,175,000 to $8,610,000. This is the only change in burden hours since the previous 60-day notice. Authority: 44 U.S.C. Section 3506(c)(2)(A). Nathaniel Beuse, Associate Administrator for Vehicle Safety Research.
