Title: 49 CFR part 543, Exemption from Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard.
OMB Number: 2127-0542.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection.
Abstract: 49 U.S.C. Chapter 331 requires the Secretary of Transportation 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. 49 U.S.C. 33106 provides for an exemption to this identification process by petitions from manufacturers who equip covered vehicles with standard original equipment antitheft devices, which the Secretary determines are likely to be as effective in reducing or deterring theft as the identification system.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 64.
