OMB Number: New.
Type of Request: New collection.
Abstract: NHTSA issued a final rule establishing FMVSS No. 225, “Child restraint anchorage systems,” in March 1999 (64 FR 10786). A final rule, response to petitions for reconsideration was prepared to respond to remaining issues raised by petitions for reconsideration of the agency's March 1999 final rule, and of the agency's previous responses to petitions, published in August 1999 (64 FR 47566) and July 2000 (65 FR 46628). The final rule was published on June 27, 2003, of the Federal Register (RIN 2127-AH99, Docket Number NHTSA-03-15438). The final rule included a one-year phase-in schedule for meeting certain manufacturing requirements. This phase-in included information collection requirements on the part of manufacturers.
Affected Public: Manufacturers of passenger cars, and trucks and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 3,855 kilograms (8,500 pounds) or less, and of buses with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: (60 total burden hours per response) × ($35 per hour) = $42,000.
