National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Reports, Forms and Record Keeping Requirements Agency Information 
Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, U.S. Department 
of Transportation.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information 
Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below has been forwarded to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR 
describes the nature of the information collections and their expected 
burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was 
published on January 3, 2011 (76 FR 210).
    This document describes a collection of labeling information on 
five Federal motor vehicle safety standards for which the National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) seeks OMB approval. The 
labeling requirements include brake fluid warning, glazing labeling, 
safety belt labeling, and vehicle certification labeling.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before June 26, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mrs. Lori Summers, U.S. Department of 
Transportation, NHTSA, Room W43-320, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., 
Washington, DC 20590. Mrs. Summer's telephone number is (202) 366-4917 
and fax number is (202) 366-7002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety 
    Title: Consolidated Labeling Requirements for Motor Vehicles 
(except the VIN).
    OMB Control 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 information 
collections in FMVSS Nos. 105, 135, 205, 209 and Part 567.
    FMVSS No. 105, ``Hydraulic and electric brake systems'' and FMVSS 
No. 135, ``Light vehicle 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,'' provides labeling 
requirements for glazing and motor vehicle manufacturers. In accordance 
with the standard, NHTSA requires each new motor vehicle glazing 
manufacturer to request and be assigned a unique mark or number. This 
number is then used by the manufacturer as their unique company 
identification on their self-certification label on each piece of motor 
vehicle glazing. As part of that certification label, the company must 
identify with the simple two or three digit number assigned by the 
agency and the model of the glazing. In addition to these requirements, 
which apply to all glazing, certain specialty glazing items, such as 
standee windows in buses, roof openings, and interior partitions made 
of plastic require that the manufacturer affix a removable label to 
each item. The label specifies cleaning instructions, which will 
minimize the loss of transparency. Other information may be provided by 
the manufacturer but is not required.
    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 (S4.1(j)). 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 (S4.1(k)). All 
other replacement belts are required to be accompanied by an 
installation instruction sheet (S4.1(k)).

[[Page 30230]]

    Seat belt assemblies installed as original equipment in new motor 
vehicles need not be required to be labeled with position/model 
information. This information is only useful if the assembly is removed 
with the intention of using the assembly as a replacement in another 
vehicle; this is not a common practice.
    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 by that provision to be in the 
form of a label permanently affixed to the vehicle. Under 49 U.S.C. 
32504, vehicle manufacturers are directed to make a similar 
certification with regard to bumper standards. To implement this 
requirement, NHTSA issued 49 CFR Part 567. The agency's regulations 
establish form and content requirements for the certification labels.
    Affected Public: Businesses.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 74,091 hours

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
    Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Departments estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; 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. A Comment to OMB is most effective if OMB 
receives it within 30 days of publication.

    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 350(c); delegation of Authority at 49 CFR 

Claude H. Harris,
Acting Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
