Title: 49 CFR part 542, Procedures for Selecting Lines to be Covered by the Theft Prevention Standard.
OMB Number: 2127-0539.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection.
Abstract: The Anti-Car Act of 1992 amended the Motor Vehicle Theft Law Enforcement Act of 1984 (Pub. L. 98-547) and requires this collection of information. One component of the theft prevention legislation required the Secretary of Transportation (delegated to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) to promulgate a theft prevention standard for the designation of high-theft vehicle lines. Provisions delineating the information collection requirements include section 33104, which requires NHTSA to promulgate a rule for the identification of major component parts for vehicles having or expected to have a theft rate above the median rate for all new passenger motor vehicles (cars, MPV's, and light-duty trucks) sold in the United States, as well as with major component parts that are interchangeable with those having high-theft-rates.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 640.
