Download as PDF jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 26656 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 110 / Friday, June 7, 2019 / Notices product suppliers for all required testing, the finished product supplier will still have some recordkeeping burden to create and maintain a finished product certificate. Therefore, although the component part testing rule may reduce the total cost of the testing required by the testing and certification rule, the rule increases the estimated annual recordkeeping burden for those who choose to use component part testing. Because we do not know how many companies participate in component part testing and supply test reports or certifications to other certifiers in the supply chain, we have no concrete data to estimate the recordkeeping and third party disclosure requirements in the component part rule. Likewise, no clear method exists for estimating the number of finished product certifiers who conduct their own component part testing. In the component part rulemaking, we suggested that the recordkeeping burden for the component part testing rule could amount to 10 percent of the burden estimated for the testing and labeling rule. 76 FR 69546, 69579 (Nov. 8, 2011). Currently, we have no basis to change this estimate. In addition to recordkeeping, the component part rule requires third party disclosure of test reports and certificates, if any, to a certifier who intends to rely on such documents to issue its own certificate. Without data, allocation of burden estimation between the recordkeeping and third party disclosure requirements is difficult. However, based on our previous analysis, we continue to estimate that creating and maintaining records accounts for approximately 90 percent of the burden, while the third party disclosure burden is much less, perhaps approximately 10 percent. Therefore, if we continue to use the estimate that component part testing will amount to about 10 percent of the burden estimated for the testing rule, then the hour burden of the component part rule is estimated to be about 510,000 hours total annually (10% of 5.1 million hours), allocating 459,000 hours for recordkeeping and 51,000 hours for third party disclosure. Section 104 Rules: The burden for marking and labeling for each section 104 rule is provided in Table 1. The estimated total number of respondent hours is 13,790. Electrically Operated Toys and Other Articles Rule: Assuming each of the 40 firms produces 10 new models per year, the estimated annual burden is 200 hours for recordkeeping (40 firms × .5 hour × 10 models) and 400 hours for VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Jun 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 labeling changes (40 firms × 1 hour × 10 models), for a total estimated annual burden of 600 hours. Baby-Bouncer/Walker-Jumper Rule: Firms are expected to test, on average, four new models per year. Accordingly, the estimated annual burden is 12 hours on recordkeeping (6 firms × 1 hour × 2 models), and 12 hours on labeling (6 firms × 1 hour × 2 models), for a total estimated annual burden of 24 hours per year.

Affected Public: Manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of omnidirectional citizens band base station antennas. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26657 Estimated Number of Respondents: Approximately seven firms supply omnidirectional citizen band base station antennas. Estimated Time per Response: Based on the information compiled by manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of antennas to test and maintain records for certificates of compliance, we estimate an average of 220 hours per firm for annual testing and recordkeeping. Total Estimated Annual Burden: 1,540 hours (7 firms × 220 hours).

The regulations implementing the standard (16 CFR part 1204, subpart B) require manufacturers, importers, and private labelers of antennas subject to the standard to test the antennas for compliance with the standard and to maintain records of that testing.
