ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 49 CFR part 574, Tire Identification and Recordkeeping. OMB Control Number: 2127–0050. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information. Abstract: 49 U.S.C. 30117(b) requires each tire manufacturer to collect and khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:20 Oct 22, 2018 Jkt 247001 maintain records of the first purchasers of new tires. To carry out this mandate, 49 CFR part 574, Tire Identification and Recordkeeping, requires tire dealers and distributors to record the names and addresses of retail purchasers of new tires and the identification numbers(s) of the tires sold. A specific form is provided to tire dealers and distributors by tire manufacturers for recording this information. The completed forms are returned to the tire manufacturers where they are retained for not less than five years. Part 574 requires independent tire dealers and distributors to provide a registration form to consumers with the tire identification number(s) already recorded and information identifying the dealer/distributor. The consumer can then record his/her name and address and return the form to the tire manufacturer via U.S. mail, or alternatively, the consumer can provide this information electronically on the tire manufacturer’s website if the tire manufacturer provides this capability. Additionally, motor vehicle manufacturers are required to record the names and addresses of the first purchasers (for purposes other than resale), together with the identification numbers of the tires on the new vehicle, and retain this information for not less than five years. The information is used by a tire manufacturer after it or the agency determines that some of its tires either fail to comply with an applicable safety standard or contain a safety related defect. With the information, the tire manufacturer can notify the first purchaser of the tire and provide them with any necessary information or instructions to remedy the noncompliance situation or safety defect. Without this information, efforts to identify the first purchaser of tires that have been determined to be defective or nonconforming pursuant to Sections 30118 and 30119 of Title 49 U.S.C. would be impeded. Further, the ability of the purchasers to take appropriate action in the interest of motor vehicle safety may be compromised. We estimate that the collection of information affects 10 million respondents annually. This group consists of approximately 20 tire manufacturers, 59,000 new tire dealers and distributors, and 10 million consumers who choose to register their tire purchases with tire manufacturers. A response is required by motor vehicle manufacturers upon each sale of a new vehicle and by non-independent tire dealers with the sale of a new tire. A consumer may elect to respond when PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53529 purchasing a new tire from an independent tire dealer. Affected Public: New tire dealers, new tire distributors, and consumers of new tires. Estimated Number of Respondents: 10 million. Frequency: once. Number of Responses: 54,000,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 250,000. The total tire registration hours are estimated assuming 45 seconds or 0.0125 hours per tire sale to record information and that each form registers three tires, on average. (0.0125 × (54,000,000/3) = 225,000 hours). The estimated burden is as follows: New tire dealers and distributors: 59,000. Consumers: 10,000,000. Total tire registrations (manual): 54,000,000. Total tire registration hours (manual): 225,000. Recordkeeping hours (manual): 25,000. Total annual tire registration and recordkeeping hours: 250,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $6,085,000. The monetized cost associated with the total burden hours, using a labor rate of $24.34 per hour,1 is $6,085,000. ($24.34/hour × 250,000 hours = $6,085,000). It was previously calculated using a labor rate of $20 per hour. ($20.00/hour × 250,000 hours = $5,000,000). Therefore, the monetized cost associated with the total burden hours in this renewal application is $1,085,000 more than the previous estimate. ($6,085,000¥$5,000,000 = $1,085,000). Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the Department’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the Department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: 49 CFR part 574, Tire Identification and Recordkeeping.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0050.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of 
information.
    Abstract: 49 U.S.C. 30117(b) requires each tire manufacturer to 
collect and maintain records of the first purchasers of new tires. To 
carry out this mandate, 49 CFR part 574, Tire Identification and 
Recordkeeping, requires tire dealers and distributors to record the 
names and addresses of retail purchasers of new tires and the 
identification numbers(s) of the tires sold. A specific form is 
provided to tire dealers and distributors by tire manufacturers for 
recording this information. The completed forms are returned to the 
tire manufacturers where they are retained for not less than five 
years. Part 574 requires independent tire dealers and distributors to 
provide a registration form to consumers with the tire identification 
number(s) already recorded and information identifying the dealer/
distributor. The consumer can then record his/her name and address and 
return the form to the tire manufacturer via U.S. mail, or 
alternatively, the consumer can provide this information electronically 
on the tire manufacturer's website if the tire manufacturer provides 
this capability. Additionally, motor vehicle manufacturers are required 
to record the names and addresses of the first purchasers (for purposes 
other than resale), together with the identification numbers of the 
tires on the new vehicle, and retain this information for not less than 
five years.
    The information is used by a tire manufacturer after it or the 
agency determines that some of its tires either fail to comply with an 
applicable safety standard or contain a safety related defect. With the 
information, the tire manufacturer can notify the first purchaser of 
the tire and provide them with any necessary information or 
instructions to remedy the non-compliance situation or safety defect. 
Without this information, efforts to identify the first purchaser of 
tires that have been determined to be defective or nonconforming 
pursuant to Sections 30118 and 30119 of Title 49 U.S.C. would be 
impeded. Further, the ability of the purchasers to take appropriate 
action in the interest of motor vehicle safety may be compromised. We 
estimate that the collection of information affects 10 million 
respondents annually. This group consists of approximately 20 tire 
manufacturers, 59,000 new tire dealers and distributors, and 10 million 
consumers who choose to register their tire purchases with tire 
manufacturers. A response is required by motor vehicle manufacturers 
upon each sale of a new vehicle and by non-independent tire dealers 
with the sale of a new tire. A consumer may elect to respond when 
purchasing a new tire from an independent tire dealer.
    Affected Public: New tire dealers, new tire distributors, and 
consumers of new tires.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10 million.
    Frequency: once.
    Number of Responses: 54,000,000.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 250,000.
    The total tire registration hours are estimated assuming 45 seconds 
or 0.0125 hours per tire sale to record information and that each form 
registers three tires, on average. (0.0125 x (54,000,000/3) = 225,000 
hours).
    The estimated burden is as follows:
    New tire dealers and distributors: 59,000.
    Consumers: 10,000,000.
    Total tire registrations (manual): 54,000,000.
    Total tire registration hours (manual): 225,000.
    Recordkeeping hours (manual): 25,000.
    Total annual tire registration and recordkeeping hours: 250,000.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $6,085,000.
    The monetized cost associated with the total burden hours, using a 
labor rate of $24.34 per hour,\1\ is $6,085,000. ($24.34/hour x 250,000 
hours = $6,085,000). It was previously calculated using a labor rate of 
$20 per hour. ($20.00/hour x 250,000 hours = $5,000,000). Therefore, 
the monetized cost associated with the total burden hours in this 
renewal application is $1,085,000 more than the previous estimate. 
($6,085,000-$5,000,000 = $1,085,000).
