Title: Consolidated Labeling Requirements for Motor Vehicles (Except the VIN).

OMB Number: 2127-0512.

Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: In order to ensure that manufacturers are complying with the FMVSS and regulations, NHTSA requires a number of specific labeling requirements. FMVSS No. 105, “Hydraulic and electric brake systems” and FMVSS No. 135, “Passenger car brake systems,” require that each vehicle shall have a brake fluid warning statement in letters at least one-eighth of an inch high on the master cylinder reservoirs and located so as to be visible by direct view. FMVSS No. 205, “Glazing materials,” requires that manufacturers mark their automotive glazing with certain label information. In addition, for certain specialty glazing items, manufacturers are required to affix a removable label to each item. FMVSS No. 209, “Seat belt assemblies,” requires safety belts to be labeled with the year of manufacture, the model, and the name or trademark of the manufacturer. Additionally, replacement safety belts that are for use only in specifically stated motor vehicles must have labels or accompanying instruction sheets to specify the applicable vehicle models and seating positions. All other replacement belts are required to be accompanied by an installation instruction sheet. Part 567, “Certification,” requires each manufacturer or distributor of motor vehicles to furnish to the dealer, or distributor of the vehicle, a certification that the vehicle meets all applicable FMVSS. This certification is required to be in the form of a label permanently affixed to the vehicle.

Affected Public: Manufacturers are required to place these labels on each master cylinder reservoir, each piece of motor vehicle glazing, each safety belt and every motor vehicle intended for retail sale in the United States.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 73,071 hours.
