Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 8734 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 40 / Wednesday, February 28, 2018 / Notices such as a cargo box or cement mixer, to a previously manufactured chassis or chassis-cab, and to persons who alter previously certified vehicles, other than by the addition, substitution, or removal of readily attachable components such as mirrors or tire and rim assemblies, or minor finishing operations such as painting, before the first purchase of the vehicle for purposes other than resale. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Responses to the Collection of Information): The agency estimates that it will receive new submissions of VIN-deciphering information under part 565 from approximately 733 manufacturers of motor vehicles per year. The manufacturers need only submit the required information on a one-time basis, with the proviso that they notify the agency of any changes in the information on file within 30 days from the date that any change in that information occurs. In addition, the agency estimates that approximately 7,600 manufacturers of motor vehicles of all types, including manufacturers of passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, trailers, motorcycles and low-speed vehicles, as well as incomplete vehicle manufacturers, intermediate and finalstage manufacturers of vehicles built in two or more stages, and vehicle alterers, will need to comply with the certification labeling requirements of part 567. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden of the Collection of Information: 733 hours for supplying required VIN-deciphering information to NHTSA under part 565; 88,000 hours for meeting the labeling requirements of part 567. Estimate of the Total Annual Costs of the Collection of Information: Assuming that the part 565 information is submitted to the agency’s website by company officers or employees compensated at an average rate of $30.00 per hour, the agency estimates that $21,990 will be expended on an annual basis by all manufacturers required to submit that information (733 hours × $30.00 = $21,990). Additionally, assuming that it will take an average of .005 hours to affix a certification label to each of the approximately 17,600,000 vehicles produced each year for sale in the United States, at an average cost of $20.00 per hour, the agency estimates that roughly $1,760,000 will be expended by all manufacturers to comply with the labeling requirements of part 567 (17,600,000 vehicles × .005 hours = 88,000 hours; 88,000 hours × $20.00 = $1,760,000). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Feb 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 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.
