Consumer Product Safety Commission.
As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Consumer Product Safety Commission requests comments on a proposed three year extension of approval of information collection requirements in regulations codified at 16 CFR part 1019, which establish procedures for export of noncomplying products. These regulations implement provisions of the Consumer Product Safety Act, the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, and the Flammable Fabrics Act that require persons and firms to notify the Commission before exporting any product that fails to comply with an applicable standard or regulation enforced under provisions of those laws. The Commission is required by law to transmit the information relating to the proposed exportation to the government of the country of intended destination. The Commission will consider all comments received in response to this notice before requesting approval of this collection of information from the Office of Management and Budget.
Written comments must be received by the Office of the Secretary not later than June 25, 2004.
Written comments should be captioned “Collection of Information—Procedures for Export of Noncomplying Products” and mailed to the Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207, or delivered to that office, room 502, 4330 East-West Highway, Bethesda, Maryland 20814. Written comments may also be sent to the Office of the Secretary by facsimile at (301) 504-0127 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.Start Further Info

A. Estimated Burden
Based on a review of the number of export requests received by the CPSC during the last three years, the Commission staff estimates that approximately 55 notifications will be received from an estimated 45 firms per year. The staff further estimates that the average time for each response is one hour, for a total of 55 hours of annual burden. The annualized cost to respondents would be approximately $1,350.00. (55 hours at $24.48/hour based on total compensation for all civilian workers in the U.S., September 2003, Bureau of Labor Statistics.)
B. Request for Comments
The Commission solicits written comments from all interested persons about the proposed collection of information. The Commission specifically solicits information relevant to the following topics:
—Whether the collection of information described above is necessary for the proper performance of the Commission's functions, including whether the information would have practical utility;
—Whether the estimated burden of the proposed collection of information is accurate;
—Whether the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected could be enhanced; and
—Whether the burden imposed by the collection of information could be minimized by use of automated, electronic or other technological collection techniques, or other forms of information technology.Start Signature
