Download as PDF 31781 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 102 / Wednesday, May 27, 2020 / Notices Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Likely Respondents: Warrantors (Automobile Manufacturers) and Informal Dispute Settlement Mechanisms. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 9,055 (derived from 6,121 recordkeeping hours in addition to 2,040 reporting hours and 894 disclosure hours). Estimated Annual Labor Costs: $209,595. Estimated Annual Capital or Other Non-labor Costs: $314,566. Abstract: On March 16, 2020, the FTC sought public comment on the information collection requirements associated with the Rule. 85 FR 14939. No germane comments were received.1 Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing this second opportunity for public comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the pre-existing clearance for the Rule. The Dispute Settlement Rule is one of three rules that the FTC implemented pursuant to requirements of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. 2301 et seq. (Warranty Act or Act). The Rule specifies the minimum standards which must be met by any informal dispute settlement mechanism (IDSM) that is incorporated into a written consumer product warranty and which the consumer is required to use before pursuing legal remedies under the Act in court (known as the ‘‘prior resort requirement’’). The Dispute Settlement Rule standards for IDSMs include requirements concerning the mechanism’s structure (e.g., funding, staffing, and neutrality), the qualifications of staff or decision makers, the mechanism’s procedures for resolving disputes (e.g., notification, investigation, time limits for decisions, and follow-up), recordkeeping, and annual audits. The Rule requires that IDSMs establish written operating procedures and provide copies of those procedures upon request. Request for Comment Your comment—including your name and your state—will be placed on the public record of this proceeding at the https://www.regulations.gov website.

OHSEPR’s ESF 6 disaster operations include implementation of disaster human services case management missions to connect disaster survivors to resources and services that support their individual and family recovery from disaster. The primary purpose of the information collection pertains to the implementation of OHSEPR’s delivery of case management services to individuals and households impacted by a disaster. OHSEPR’s disaster case managers collect information during intake assessments that is utilized to identify a disaster survivor’s unmet needs and connect them with resources. OHSEPR also utilizes this information to target resources and improve its disaster human services operations. The information collection will be used to support OHSEPR’s goal to quickly identify critical gaps, resources, needs, and services to support state, local, and non-profit capacity for disaster case management and to augment and build human service capacity where none exists. All information gathered will be used to (1) provide case management services to survivors and (2) inform the delivery of disaster case management services and programmatic strategies and improvements. Respondents: Individuals impacted by a disaster. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Instrument Total number of respondents Total number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response Total burden hours Annual burden hours Immediate Disaster Case Management Intake Assessment .............................................................................. 33,489 1 1 33,489 11,163 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 May 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\27MYN1.SGM 27MYN1
