Therefore, FMCSA concludes that extending the exemption for each renewal applicant for a period of two years is likely to achieve a level of safety equal to that existing without the exemption. As of February 3, 2019, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, the following nine individuals have satisfied the renewal conditions for obtaining an exemption from the epilepsy and seizure disorders prohibition in the FMCSRs for interstate CMV drivers: Ryan Babler (WI) James Connelly (NJ) Ricky Conway, Jr. (MO) Bradley Hollister (PA) Henrietta Ketcham (NY) Michael Merical (NY) Elvin P. Morgan (CA) Larry Nicholson (NC) Daniel Zielinski (OR) The drivers were included in docket numbers FMCSA–2010–0203; FMCSA– 2016–0011; FMCSA–2016–0313. Their exemptions are applicable as of February 3, 2019 and will expire on February 3, 2021. V. Conditions and Requirements The exemptions are extended subject to the following conditions: (1) Each driver must remain seizure-free and maintain a stable treatment during the two-year exemption period; (2) each driver must submit annual reports from their treating physicians attesting to the stability of treatment and that the driver has remained seizure-free; (3) each driver must undergo an annual medical examination by a certified Medical Examiner, as defined by 49 CFR 390.5; and (4) each driver must provide a copy of the annual medical certification to the employer for retention in the driver’s qualification file, or keep a copy of his/her driver’s qualification file if he/she is self-employed. The driver must also have a copy of the exemption when driving, for presentation to a duly authorized Federal, State, or local enforcement official. The exemption will be rescinded if: (1) The person fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the exemption; (2) the exemption has resulted in a lower level of safety than was maintained before it was granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315. VI. Preemption During the period the exemption is in effect, no State shall enforce any law or regulation that conflicts with this exemption with respect to a person operating under the exemption. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 VII. Conclusion Based on its evaluation of the nine exemption applications, FMCSA renews the exemptions of the aforementioned drivers from the epilepsy and seizure disorders prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8). In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, each exemption will be valid for two years unless revoked earlier by FMCSA. Issued on: March 22, 2019. Larry W.

Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring to its OMB Control Number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 collections of information: Title of Collection: Record Retention. OMB Control Number: 2127–0042. Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Under 49 U.S.C. 30166(e), NHTSA ‘‘reasonably may require a manufacturer of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment to keep records, and a manufacturer, distributor or dealer to make reports, to enable NHTSA to decide whether the manufacturer, distributor, or dealer has complied or is complying with this chapter or a regulation prescribed under this chapter.’’ To ensure that NHTSA will have access to this type of information, the agency exercised the authority granted in 49 U.S.C. 30166(e) and promulgated 49 CFR part 576 Record Retention, initially published on August 20, 1974 and most recently amended on July 10, 2002 (67 FR 45873), requiring manufacturers to retain one copy of all records that contain information concerning malfunctions that may be related to motor vehicle safety for a period of five calendar years after the record is generated or acquired by the manufacturer. Manufacturers are also required to retain for ten years (five E:\FR\FM\01APN1.SGM 01APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 62 / Monday, April 1, 2019 / Notices years for manufacturers of child seats and tires) the underlying records related to early warning reporting (EWR) information submitted under 49 CFR part 579. The information collected supports NHTSA’s goal of improving highway safety. The total burden hours for this estimate consist of: (1) Approximately 1,000 manufacturers of vehicles and equipment (including tires, child restraint systems and trailers) are required to maintain records. (2) We estimate their burden at 40 hours each for a subtotal of 40,000 hours (1,000 respondents × 40 hours). (3) In addition, we estimate that an additional 20 equipment manufacturers have record retention requirements imposed by Part 576, limited to the submission of death reports. Based on recent year’s counts of death reports received by NHTSA, we estimate that it will take one hour each to maintain the necessary records for a subtotal burden of 20 hours (20 respondents × one hour). Accordingly, the estimate of total annual burden hours is 40,020 hours (1,000 respondents × 40 hours + 20 respondents × 1 hour). NHTSA estimates that the hourly cost associated with the burden hours of 40,020 is approximately $20 per hour, consisting of both computer time and clerical time. Accordingly, the agency estimates that the total annual costs associated with the burden hours is $800,400 (40,020 annual burden hours × $20 per hour). Affected Public: Manufacturers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,020. Frequency: As needed. Number of Responses: 1,020. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 40,020. Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $800,400. 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 proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 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.

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,

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 collections of information:
    Title of Collection: Record Retention.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0042.
    Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Abstract: Under 49 U.S.C. 30166(e), NHTSA ``reasonably may require 
a manufacturer of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment to keep 
records, and a manufacturer, distributor or dealer to make reports, to 
enable NHTSA to decide whether the manufacturer, distributor, or dealer 
has complied or is complying with this chapter or a regulation 
prescribed under this chapter.'' To ensure that NHTSA will have access 
to this type of information, the agency exercised the authority granted 
in 49 U.S.C. 30166(e) and promulgated 49 CFR part 576 Record Retention, 
initially published on August 20, 1974 and most recently amended on 
July 10, 2002 (67 FR 45873), requiring manufacturers to retain one copy 
of all records that contain information concerning malfunctions that 
may be related to motor vehicle safety for a period of five calendar 
years after the record is generated or acquired by the manufacturer. 
Manufacturers are also required to retain for ten years (five

years for manufacturers of child seats and tires) the underlying 
records related to early warning reporting (EWR) information submitted 
under 49 CFR part 579. The information collected supports NHTSA's goal 
of improving highway safety.
    The total burden hours for this estimate consist of:
    (1) Approximately 1,000 manufacturers of vehicles and equipment 
(including tires, child restraint systems and trailers) are required to 
maintain records.
    (2) We estimate their burden at 40 hours each for a subtotal of 
40,000 hours (1,000 respondents x 40 hours).
    (3) In addition, we estimate that an additional 20 equipment 
manufacturers have record retention requirements imposed by Part 576, 
limited to the submission of death reports. Based on recent year's 
counts of death reports received by NHTSA, we estimate that it will 
take one hour each to maintain the necessary records for a subtotal 
burden of 20 hours (20 respondents x one hour).
    Accordingly, the estimate of total annual burden hours is 40,020 
hours (1,000 respondents x 40 hours + 20 respondents x 1 hour).
    NHTSA estimates that the hourly cost associated with the burden 
hours of 40,020 is approximately $20 per hour, consisting of both 
computer time and clerical time. Accordingly, the agency estimates that 
the total annual costs associated with the burden hours is $800,400 
(40,020 annual burden hours x $20 per hour).
    Affected Public: Manufacturers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,020.
    Frequency: As needed.
    Number of Responses: 1,020.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 40,020.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $800,400.
    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 proper performance of 
the functions of the Department, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department's estimate 
of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of
