Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB's regulation (at 5CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following:
(i) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
(ii) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
(iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
(iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collections of information:
Title: Replaceable Light Source Dimensional Information Collection, 49 CFR Part 564
OMB Number: 2127-0563.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Business or other for profit organizations.
Abstract: The information to be collected is in response to 49 CFR Part 564—Replaceable Light Source Information. Manufacturers of modified or original equipment light sources desiring to use newly designed replaceable light sources in headlamps are required to submit manufacturing specifications (dimensional, electrical specification, and marking/designation information) to the agency. After a short agency review to assure completeness, the information is placed in the Part 564—Replaceable Light Source Information Docket. The Part 564 Docket is a public docket available for use by any manufacturer who desired to manufacture headlamp light sources for highway motor vehicles. In Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Start Printed Page 8104No. 108; Lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment, Part 564 submissions are referenced as being the source of information regarding the performance and interchangeability information for legal headlamp light sources, whether original equipment or replacement equipment. Thus, the submitted information about headlamp light sources becomes the basis for certification of compliance with FMVSS No. 108.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 28.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 7.
Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collected; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.Start Signature
