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. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comment on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public. OMB Control Number: 2127–0629. Type of Request: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection. Type of Review Requested: Regular. Length of Approval Requested: Three Years. Abstract: NHTSA’s mission is to save lives, prevent injury, and reduce motor vehicle crashes. Consumer information programs are an important tool for improving vehicle safety through market forces. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 32302, the Secretary of Transportation (NHTSA by delegation) is directed to provide to the public the following information about passenger motor vehicles: Damage susceptibility; crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and any other areas the Secretary determines will improve safety of passenger motor vehicles; and the degree of difficulty of diagnosis and repair of damage to, or failure of, mechanical and electrical systems. For more than 40 years, under its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), NHTSA has been providing consumers with vehicle safety information such as frontal and side crash results, crash avoidance performance test results, rollover propensity, and the availability of a wide array of safety features provided on new model year vehicles. Additionally, the agency uses this safety feature information when responding to consumer inquiries and analyzing rulemaking petitions and the regulatory E:\FR\FM\07JYN1.SGM 07JYN1 40734 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 130 / Tuesday, July 7, 2020 / Notices impacts of Congressional Acts that require the agency to issue or consider issuing new rules that would mandate certain vehicle safety features. NHTSA has another information collection to obtain data related to motor vehicle compliance with the agency’s Federal motor vehicle safety standards. Although the consumer information collection data (requested by NCAP) is distinct and unique from the compliance data, respondents to both collections are similar. Thus, the consumer information collection is closely coordinated with the compliance collection to enable responders to assemble the data more efficiently. The burden is further reduced by sending electronic files to the respondents so that they can enter the data and return it to the agency electronically. and light truck vehicles (including sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and vans) in the United States with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 10,000 pounds or less, that NHTSA requests annually to respond to this information request. These 21 vehicle manufacturers produce an aggregate of approximately 400 vehicle models each year. Estimates are based on an expected 5 hours to prepare the request for each vehicle model. In addition, the estimate on total annual burden hours for each task is based on a proportion of the job function (e.g., 50 percent for data entry; 40 percent for technical information validation; 10 percent for technical content approval). Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,000 hours. Number of vehicle models: 400. Number of hours per vehicle model: 5. Total annual burden hours: 2,000 = (5 hours/model × 400 models). Affected Public: Manufacturers that sell passenger cars and light truck vehicles (including sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and vans) that have a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or less in the United States. Estimated Number of Respondents: 21. Frequency: Annually. Number of Responses: 21. The consumer information collected will be used to disseminate vehicle safely information via the agency’s www.nhtsa.gov website, in the ‘‘Purchasing with Safety in Mind: What to look for when buying a new vehicle’’ brochure, and in other consumer publications, as well as for internal agency analyses and responses to consumer inquiries.

Further, the statute mandates that, in issuing any FMVSS, the agency considers whether the standard is ‘‘reasonable, practicable and appropriate for the particular type of motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment for which it is prescribed,’’ and whether such a standard will contribute to carrying out the purpose of the Act. The Secretary is authorized to issue such rules and regulations as deemed necessary to carry out these requirements.

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. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for 
public comment on the following proposed collection of information:
    Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0629.
    Type of Request: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection.

    Abstract: NHTSA's mission is to save lives, prevent injury, and 
reduce motor vehicle crashes. Consumer information programs are an

Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 32302, the Secretary of Transportation (NHTSA by

information about passenger motor vehicles: Damage susceptibility; 
crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and any other areas the Secretary 
determines will improve safety of passenger motor vehicles; and the 
degree of difficulty of diagnosis and repair of damage to, or failure 
of, mechanical and electrical systems. For more than 40 years, under 
its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), NHTSA has been providing 
consumers with vehicle safety information such as frontal and side

features.
    NHTSA has another information collection to obtain data related to 
motor vehicle compliance with the agency's Federal motor vehicle safety 
standards. Although the consumer information collection data (requested 
by NCAP) is distinct and unique from the compliance data, respondents 
to both collections are similar. Thus, the consumer information 
collection is closely coordinated with the compliance collection to 
enable responders to assemble the data more efficiently. The burden is 
further reduced by sending electronic files to the respondents so that 
they can enter the data and return it to the agency electronically.
    Affected Public: Manufacturers that sell passenger cars and light 
truck vehicles (including sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and 
vans) that have a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds 
or less in the United States.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 21.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Number of Responses: 21.
    The consumer information collected will be used to disseminate 
vehicle safely information via the agency's www.nhtsa.gov website, in 
the ``Purchasing with Safety in Mind: What to look for when buying a 
new vehicle'' brochure, and in other consumer publications, as well as 
for internal agency analyses and responses to consumer inquiries.
    There are approximately 21 vehicle manufacturers that sell 
passenger cars and light truck vehicles (including sport utility 
vehicles, pickup trucks, and vans) in the United States with a Gross 
Vehicle Weight Rating of 10,000 pounds or less, that NHTSA requests 
annually to respond to this information request. These 21 vehicle 
manufacturers produce an aggregate of approximately 400 vehicle models 
each year. Estimates are based on an expected 5 hours to prepare the 
request for each vehicle model. In addition, the estimate on total 
annual burden hours for each task is based on a proportion of the job 
function (e.g., 50 percent for data entry; 40 percent for technical 
information validation; 10 percent for technical content approval).
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,000 hours.
    Number of vehicle models: 400.
    Number of hours per vehicle model: 5.
    Total annual burden hours: 2,000 = (5 hours/model x 400 models).

    A breakdown of the total annual burden hours (2,000) for this

hours.
    Burden hours for technical information validation = 2,000 hours x
