SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), a Federal agency must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before it collects certain information from the public and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information by a Federal agency unless the collection displays a valid OMB control number. In compliance with these requirements, this notice announces that the following information collection request will be submitted OMB. Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public. OMB Control Number: 2127–0629. Form Numbers: N/A. Type of Request: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection. Type of Review Requested: Regular. Length of Approval Requested: Three years. Summary of the Collection of Information: 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, NHTSA has been providing consumers with vehicle safety information such as frontal and side crash test results, advanced crash avoidance technology system performance test results, rollover propensity, and the availability of a wide array of safety features provided on new model year vehicles. The information collection includes new model year vehicle information such as vehicle make, model, body style, certification style, projected sales volume, crashworthiness features, advanced crash avoidance technologies, crash avoidance technologies test data, vehicle setup information, and side air bag information. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information: The consumer information collected will be used to disseminate vehicle safety 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. Additionally, the Agency uses this information collection to respond to consumer inquiries, analyze rulemaking petitions, and provide technical assistance to Congress. 60-Day Notice: A Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period 62877 soliciting public comments on the following information collection was published on July 7, 2020 (85 FR 40733). NHTSA received one public comment stating general support of the collection request. 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: 1. 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. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,995 hours. NHTSA estimates that these 21 vehicle manufacturers produce an aggregate of approximately 400 vehicle models each year, for an average of 19 models per manufacturer. NHTSA estimates the burden associated with this collection based on an expected 5 hours to prepare a response for each vehicle model. Therefore, NHTSA estimates the annual burden to be 95 hours per manufacturer (19 vehicle models × 5 hours) and estimates that the total burden will be approximately 1,995 hours per year (95 hours per manufacturer × 21 manufacturers). This is a slight recalculation from the 60-day notice in which NHTSA estimated the total burden to be 400 hours. However, as NHTSA needs to estimate the burden on a per response basis, NHTSA needed to change its calculation to estimate the total burden associated with each response (i.e., the average burden a manufacturer would spend providing responses for their vehicle models).

Therefore, NHTSA estimates that each submission will require 47.5 data entry hours, 38 technical information validation hours, and 9.5 technical content approval hours, for an annual total of 997.5 data entry hours, 798 technical information validation hours, and 199.5 technical content approval hours. NHTSA estimates the total labor costs associated with the data entry burden hours by looking at estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for the average hourly wage for Business Operations Specialists (BLS Occupation code 13–1000) in the Motor Vehicle Manufacturing Industry. BLS estimates the average hourly wage is $39.46.1 The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that private industry workers’ wages represent 70.4% of total labor compensation costs.2 Therefore, NHTSA estimates the hourly labor costs to be $56.05 for data entry.

Chapter 331, the Secretary of Transportation (and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) by delegation) is required to promulgate a theft prevention standard to provide for the identification of certain motor vehicles and their major replacement parts to impede motor vehicle theft. NHTSA promulgated regulations at 49 CFR part 541 (theft prevention standard) to require partsmarking for specified passenger motor vehicles and light trucks. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 33106, manufacturers that are subject to the parts-marking requirements may petition the Secretary of Transportation for an exemption for a line of passenger motor vehicles equipped with an antitheft device as standard equipment that the Secretary decides is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the partsmarking requirements. In accordance with this statute, NHTSA promulgated 49 CFR part 543, which establishes the process through which manufacturers may seek an exemption from the theft prevention standard. 49 CFR 543.5 provides general submission requirements for petitions and states that each manufacturer may petition NHTSA for an exemption of one vehicle line per model year. Among other requirements, manufacturers must identify whether the exemption is sought under section 543.6 or section 543.7. Under section 543.6, a manufacturer may request an exemption SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: at https://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecec.t01.htm (accessed August 2, 2021). E:\FR\FM\12NON1.SGM 12NON1

    Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0629.
    Form Numbers: N/A.
    Type of Request: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection.
    Type of Review Requested: Regular.
    Length of Approval Requested: Three years.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: 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, NHTSA has been 
providing consumers with vehicle safety information such as frontal and 
side crash test results, advanced crash avoidance technology system 
performance test results, rollover propensity, and the availability of 
a wide array of safety features provided on new model year vehicles. 
The information collection includes new model year vehicle information 
such as vehicle make, model, body style, certification style, projected 
sales volume, crashworthiness features, advanced crash avoidance 
technologies, crash avoidance technologies test data, vehicle setup

disseminate vehicle safety 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. 
Additionally, the Agency uses this information collection to respond to 
consumer inquiries, analyze rulemaking petitions, and provide technical 
assistance to Congress.
    60-Day Notice: A Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment 
period soliciting public comments on the following information 
collection was published on July 7, 2020 (85 FR 40733). NHTSA received 
one public comment stating general support of the collection request.
    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: 1.
    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.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,995 hours.
    NHTSA estimates that these 21 vehicle manufacturers produce an 
aggregate of approximately 400 vehicle models each year, for an average 
of 19 models per manufacturer. NHTSA estimates the burden associated 
with this collection based on an expected 5 hours to prepare a response 
for each vehicle model. Therefore, NHTSA estimates the annual burden to 
be 95 hours per manufacturer (19 vehicle models x 5 hours) and 
estimates that the total burden will be approximately 1,995 hours per 
year (95 hours per manufacturer x 21 manufacturers). This is a slight 
recalculation from the 60-day notice in which NHTSA estimated the total 
burden to be 400 hours. However, as NHTSA needs to estimate the burden 
on a per response basis, NHTSA needed to change its calculation to 
estimate the total burden associated with each response (i.e., the 
average burden a manufacturer would spend providing responses for their 
vehicle models). Table 1 provides a summary of the estimated burden 
hours.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To calculate the labor cost associated with submitting the vehicle 
questionnaires, NHTSA looked at wage estimates for the type of 
personnel involved with compiling and submitting the documents. NHTSA 
estimates that the five hours for each vehicle model will involve 2.5 
hours of data entry (50% of the total), 2 hours for technical

[[Page 62878]]

information validation (40% of the total), and 0.5 hour for technical 
content approval (10% of the total). Therefore, NHTSA estimates that 
each submission will require 47.5 data entry hours, 38 technical 
information validation hours, and 9.5 technical content approval hours, 
for an annual total of 997.5 data entry hours, 798 technical 
information validation hours, and 199.5 technical content approval 
hours.
    NHTSA estimates the total labor costs associated with the data 
entry burden hours by looking at estimates from the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics (BLS) for the average hourly wage for Business Operations 
Specialists (BLS Occupation code 13-1000) in the Motor Vehicle 
Manufacturing Industry. BLS estimates the average hourly wage is 
$39.46.\1\ The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that private 
industry workers' wages represent 70.4% of total labor compensation 
costs.\2\ Therefore, NHTSA estimates the hourly labor costs to be 
$56.05 for data entry. Table 2 provides a summary of the labor costs 
associated with the burden hours.
