    Title: Record Retention.
    OMB Number: 2127-0042.
    Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Abstract: Under 49 U.S.C. 30166(e), NHTSA ``reasonably may require 
a manufacturer of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment to keep 
records, and a manufacturer, distributor or dealer to make reports, to 
enable [NHTSA] to decide whether the manufacturer, distributor, or 
dealer has complied or is complying with this chapter or a regulation 
prescribed or order issued under this chapter.''
    To ensure that NHTSA will have access to this type of information, 
the agency exercised the authority granted in 49 U.S.C. 30166(e) and 
promulgated 49 CFR Part 576 Record Retention, initially published on 
August 20, 1974 and most recently amended on July 10, 2002 (67 FR 
45873), requiring manufacturers to retain one copy of all records that 
contain information concerning malfunctions that may be related to 
motor vehicle safety for a period of five calendar years after the 
record is generated or acquired by the manufacturer. Manufacturers are 
also required to retain for ten years (five years for manufacturers of 
child seats and tires) the underlying records related to early warning 
reporting (EWR) information submitted under 49 CFR Part 579.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for profit.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 40,020 annual hours burden (20 
respondents times 1 hour, plus 1,000 respondents times 40 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 Department's 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.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on April 14, 2014.

Director, Office of Defects Investigation.
