FCA US also does not believe that the incorrect AS2 marking impacts the ability of the glazing to satisfy the stated purpose or affects the performance of the glazing as required by FMVSS No. 205. 2. The subject glazing meets all applicable performance requirements of FMVSS No. 205 and FCA US believes there is no safety performance implication associated with this technical noncompliance. 3. In addition to meeting componentlevel performance requirements of FMVSS No. 205, the subject glazing also fully meets the vehicle-level installation requirements specified by FMVSS No. 205. The subject glazing at 22% light transmissibility is permitted in the liftgate glass location on the affected Jeep Compass vehicles. 4. The actual transmissibility of the subject liftgate glass glazing (approximately 22%) is consistent with all the other glazing rearward of the driver (i.e. left and right side windows, and the left and right rear-quarter window glazing) on the affected Jeep Compass vehicles. Accordingly, there is no reason for the customer, state inspection authorities, service personnel or anyone else to focus on or detect any distinction involving the subject liftgate glass. 5. Even in the extremely unlikely event that a glazing corresponding to the incorrect markings (i.e. solar glazing with 70% transmittance) was installed on an affected vehicle, this would also be fully compliant to all requirements of FMVSS No. 205. 6. FCA US is not aware of any crashes, injuries, or customer complaints associated with this condition. 7. NHTSA has previously granted similar inconsequential treatment for FMVSS No. 205 marking noncompliance. Examples of similar granted inconsequentiality petitions for incorrect markings related to glazing include: a. Supreme Corporation, NHTSA– 2015–0126 N2 October 21, 2016. b. Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc., NHTSA–2015–0066 N2, August 22, 2015. c. Ford Motor Company, NHTSA– 2014–0054 N2, March 2, 2015. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:42 Apr 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 d. Custom Glass Solutions Upper Sandusky Corp., NHTSA–2013–0124 N2, January 23, 2015. e. General Motors, LLC, NHTSA– 2013–0039 N2, April 28, 2015. f. Fuji Heavy Industries U.S.A., Inc., NHTSA–2013–0017 N2, September 25, 2013. g. Please see FCA US’s petition for their complete list of petitions that were previously granted by NHTSA for glazing markings. FCA US concluded by expressing the belief that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, and that its petition to be exempted from providing notification of the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and a remedy for the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120, should be granted. FCA US’ complete petition and all supporting documents are available by logging onto the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) website at: https://www.regulations.gov and following the online search instructions to locate the docket number listed in the title of this notice. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject vehicles that FCA US no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after FCA US notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:42 Apr 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 the following proposed collection of information: Title: ‘‘Motorcycle Helmets (Labeling)’’. OMB Control Number: 2127–0518. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the approval date. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses. Summary of the Collection of Information: The National Traffic Vehicle Safety statute at 49 U.S.C. Subchapter II Standards and Compliance, Sections 30111 and 30117, authorizes the issuance of Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS). The Secretary is authorized to issue, amend, and revoke such rules and regulations as he/she deems necessary. The Secretary is also authorized to require manufacturers to provide information to first purchasers of motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment when the vehicle equipment is purchased, in the form of printed matter placed in the vehicle or attached to the motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment. Using this authority, the agency issued the initial FMVSS No. 218, ‘‘Motorcycle helmets,’’ in 1974. Motorcycle helmets are devices used to protect motorcyclists from head injury in motor vehicle accidents. FMVSS No. 218 S5.6 requires that each helmet shall be labeled permanently and legibly in a manner such that the label(s) can be read easily without removing padding or any other permanent part. Estimated Annual Burden: 9,100 hours. NHTSA estimates that 3,250,000 motorcycle helmets are manufactured annually by 45 motorcycle helmet manufacturers. NHTSA also estimates that 0.0028 hours are spent per helmet on the required labels. Therefore, the estimated total annual burden hours for the collection of information required in FMVSS No. 218 is 9,100 hours (= 3,250,000 × 0.0028). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00148 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB 
for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register 
providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of 
the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of 
information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must 
be included in such a document. Under OMB's regulation (at 5 CFR 
1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following:
    (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments 
on the following proposed collection of information:
    Title: ``Motorcycle Helmets (Labeling)''.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0518.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the 
approval date.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: The National Traffic 
Vehicle Safety statute at 49 U.S.C. Subchapter II Standards and 
Compliance, Sections 30111 and 30117, authorizes the issuance of 
Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS). The Secretary is 
authorized to issue, amend, and revoke such rules and regulations as 
he/she deems necessary. The Secretary is also authorized to require 
manufacturers to provide information to first purchasers of motor 
vehicles or motor vehicle equipment when the vehicle equipment is 
purchased, in the form of printed matter placed in the vehicle or 
attached to the motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment.
    Using this authority, the agency issued the initial FMVSS No. 218, 
``Motorcycle helmets,'' in 1974. Motorcycle helmets are devices used to 
protect motorcyclists from head injury in motor vehicle accidents. 
FMVSS No. 218 S5.6 requires that each helmet shall be labeled 
permanently and legibly in a manner such that the label(s) can be read 
easily without removing padding or any other permanent part.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 9,100 hours.
    NHTSA estimates that 3,250,000 motorcycle helmets are manufactured 
annually by 45 motorcycle helmet manufacturers. NHTSA also estimates 
that 0.0028 hours are spent per helmet on the required labels. 
Therefore, the estimated total annual burden hours for the collection 
of information required in FMVSS No. 218 is 9,100 hours (= 3,250,000 x 
0.0028).
    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.
