Download as PDF lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 11452 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 39 / Thursday, February 27, 2020 / Notices stated: ‘‘The intended use of a hazard warning lamp and the momentary activation of a CHMSL do not provide a conflicting message. The illumination of the CHMSL is intended to signify that the vehicle’s brakes are being applied and that the vehicle might be decelerating. Hazard warning lamps are intended as a more general message to nearby drivers that extra attention should be given to the vehicle. A brief illumination of the CHMSL while activating the hazard warning lamps would not confuse the intended general message, nor would the brief illumination in the absence of the other brake lamps cause confusion that the brakes were unintentionally applied.’’ • In Docket No. 83 FR 7847 (Feb 22, 2018) a Petition for inconsequentiality by GM was granted by NHTSA. In this instance, under certain conditions, the parking lamps on the subject vehicles fail to meet the requirement that parking lamps must be activated when headlamps are activated in a steady burning state. NHTSA stated: ‘‘. . . The Agency agrees with GM that in this case, this situation would have a low probability of occurrence and, if it should occur, it would neither be longlasting nor likely to occur during a period when parking lamps are generally in use. Importantly, when the noncompliance does occur, other lamps remain functional. The combination of all of the factors, specific to this case, abate the risk to safety.’’ • In Docket No. 64 FR 62609 (Sept. 02, 1999) a Petition for inconsequentiality by GM was granted by NHTSA. In this instance, a certain model equipped with an electronic turn signal was affected by random inputs that cause the internal timing of the electronic circuit to become unsynchronized causing the left front turn signal lamp to flash at a rapid rate while the left rear turn signal lamp illuminates but does not flash. These conditions can continue after the turn signal lever automatically returns to the off position. NHTSA stated: ‘‘We have concluded that the few vehicles affected by this noncompliance, as well as the fact that the turn signals show the driver that they have failed, warrant a finding that this noncompliance is inconsequential with regard to motor vehicle safety.’’ 7. DTNA believes that a technical non-compliance exists, but does not create a negative impact on safety when the brake lamps illuminate during a brake system low air warning event. The brake light illumination serves to emphasize the message to following drivers that the vehicle is experiencing trouble and they should pay close VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Feb 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 attention. The Brake Air warning indicator light, on the driver’s display panel, shows the driver that there is an issue with the air brake system. This would result in the driver bringing the vehicle to a safe stop and having the air system repaired before continuing. DTNA 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. 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 DTNA 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 DTNA notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501et seq.), 
Federal agencies must obtain approval from the OMB for each collection 
of information that they conduct or sponsor. ``Collection of 
information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to 
include agency requests or requirements that members of the public 
submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 
Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of title 44 generally requires Federal agencies 
to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each 
proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension 
of an existing collection of information, before submitting the 
collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the 
OCC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set 
forth in this document.
    The OCC is proposing to extend OMB approval of the following 
information collection:
    Title: Assessment of Fees.

    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
    Type of Review: Regular review.
    Abstract: The OCC is requesting comment on its proposed extension, 
without change, of the information collection titled, ``Assessment of

savings association if the OCC concludes that the affiliation is 
intended to evade the requirements of 12 CFR part 8.
    The OCC requires independent credit card institutions to report 
receivables attributable data to the OCC semiannually or at a time

attributable to those accounts) on the last day of an assessment 
period, minus receivables retained on the national bank or Federal 
savings association's balance sheet as of that day. 12 CFR
