SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
    Title: 49 CFR Part 583-Automobile Parts Content Labeling.
    OMB Number: 2127-0573.
    Type of Request: Request for public comment on a previously 
approved collection of information.
    Abstract: Part 583 establishes requirements for the disclosure of 
information relating to the countries of origin of the equipment of new 
passenger motor vehicles. This information will be used by NHTSA to 
determine whether manufacturers are complying with the American 
Automobile Labeling Act (49 U.S.C. 32304). The American Automobile 
Labeling Act requires all new passenger motor vehicles (including 
passenger cars, certain small buses, all light trucks and multipurpose 
passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds 
or less), to bear labels providing information about domestic and 
foreign content of their equipment. With the affixed label on the new 
passenger motor vehicles, it serves as an aid to potential purchasers 
in the selection of new passenger motor vehicles by providing them with 
information about the value of the U.S./Canadian and foreign parts of 
each vehicle, the countries of origin of the engine and transmission, 
and the site of the vehicle's final assembly.
    NHTSA anticipates approximately 21 vehicle manufacturers will be 
affected by these reporting requirements. NHTSA does not believe that 
any of these 21 manufacturers are a small business (i.e., one that 
employs less than 500 persons) since each manufacturer employs more 
than 500 persons. Manufacturers of new passenger motor vehicles, 
including passenger cars, certain small buses, and light trucks with a 
gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less, must file a report 
annually.
    Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: NHTSA estimates that the vehicle 
manufacturers will incur a total annual reporting hour and cost burden 
of 52,962 hours and $2,439,108 respectively. The amount includes annual 
burden hours incurred by multi-stage manufacturers and motor vehicle 
equipment suppliers. We estimate that the annual reporting and 
recordkeeping hour burden of 52,962 remains the same because there was 
no change in the number of respondents. There is an increase in annual 
cost due to inflation.

Acting Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
