This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards Act Reporting.
OMB Approval Number: 2502-0253.
Type of Request: Revision.
Form Number: None.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Federal Standards and Procedural Regulations require manufactured home producers to place labels and notices in and on manufactured homes and mandate State and Private agencies participating in the Federal program to issue reports. Under revisions to the current reporting requirements and Regulations, a streamlined procedure is being added that will allow manufacturers, under certain circumstances, to complete construction of their homes on-site rather than in the factory without first having to obtain advance approval from HUD. In addition, some information collected assists both HUD and State Agency's in locating manufactured homes with defects, which then would create the need for notification and/or correction by the manufacturer.
Respondents: (i.e. affected public) Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 181.
Estimated Number of Responses: 86,354.
Frequency of Response: Monthly.
Average Hours per Response: 4.
Total Estimated Burdens: 120,618.
B. Solicitation of Public Comment
This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following: (1) 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; (2) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
