There were four new lighter models and 227 lighters that were comparable to models previously tested (‘‘comparison lighters’’). Estimated Time per Response: The burden associated with the standard includes the time and cost spent testing and maintaining the test records, either by the firm or by outside contractors. If tests are conducted in-house, testing new lighter models is expected to take about 90 hours per model. The total testing time for the four models, would be 360 hours. Recordkeeping consists of two separate components: recordkeeping for new lighter models, and recordkeeping for comparison lighters. New Lighter Models—The time burden for recordkeeping for new lighter models is estimated at 20 hours per model. The total time for recordkeeping is estimated to be 80 hours (20 hours × 4 models). If tests are conducted in-house, for each new model, product testing for each firm would take approximately 90 hours per model, for a total of 360 hours (90 hours × 4 models). Comparison Lighters—Firms may also submit comparison lighters to demonstrate compliance with the standard. In 2018, 227 comparison lighters were reported to the CPSC. While firms bear no testing costs for comparison lighters, the burden hours for recordkeeping has been estimated at 3 hours per model. Thus, an estimated 681 hours (227 models × 3 hours) is estimated for recordkeeping for comparison lighters. Reporting Requirements— Approximately 1 hour will be required for firms to submit forms to CPSC per model, for a total annual reporting burden on 231 hours (231 models × 1 hour). Total Estimated Annual Burden: The annual total number of hours could be as high as 1,352 hours (360 testing + 761 recordkeeping hours + 231 reporting hours) per year. If some firms elect to outsource testing of new models, it could be less. The CPSC estimates the total cost for firms to test, and prepare, maintain, and submit records to the CPSC in compliance with the lighter regulation would be in the range of $59,064 to $115,929, depending upon the test method chosen. General Description of Collection: In 1993, the CPSC issued the Safety Standard for Cigarette Lighters (16 CFR part 1210) under the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) (15 U.S.C. 2051 et seq.) to eliminate or reduce risks of VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Jun 04, 2019 Jkt 247001 death and burn injury from fires accidentally started by children playing with cigarette lighters. The standard requires certain test protocols, as well as recordkeeping and reporting requirements. 16 CFR part 1210, subpart B. In addition, section 14(a) of the CPSA (15 U.S.C. 2063(a)) requires manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of a consumer product subject to a consumer product safety standard to issue a certificate stating that the product complies with all applicable consumer product safety standards. Section 14(a) of the CPSA also requires that the certificate of compliance must be based on a test of each product or upon a reasonable testing program. Request for Comments The CPSC solicits written comments from all interested persons about the proposed collection of information. The CPSC specifically solicits information relevant to the following topics: —Whether the collection of information described above is necessary for the proper performance of the CPSC’s functions, including whether the information would have practical utility; —Whether the estimated burden of the proposed collection of information is accurate; —Whether the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected could be enhanced; and —Whether the burden imposed by the collection of information could be minimized by use of automated, electronic, or other technological collection techniques, or other forms of information technology.
