[[Page 43555]]

    Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0621.
    Form Number: None.
    Abstract: FMVSS No. 403, Platform lift systems for motor vehicles, 
establishes minimum performance standards for platform lifts designed 
for installation on motor vehicles. Its purpose is to prevent injuries 
and fatalities to passengers and bystanders during the operation of 
platform lifts that assist wheelchair users and other persons with 
limited mobility in entering and leaving a vehicle. FMVSS No. 404, 
Platform lift installations in motor vehicles, places specific 
requirements on vehicle manufacturers or alterers who install platform 
lifts in new vehicles. Under these regulations, lift manufacturers must 
certify that their lifts meet the requirements of FMVSS No. 403 and 
must declare the certification on the owner's manual insert, the 
installation instructions, and the lift operating instruction label. 
Certification of compliance with FMVSS No. 404 is on the certification 
label already required of vehicle manufacturers and alterers under 49 
CFR part 567. Under these two safety standards, lift manufacturers must 
produce: An insert that is placed in the vehicle owner's manual; 
installation instructions; and one or two labels that are placed near 
the controls for operating the lift in normal mode and in back-up mode. 
The requirements and our estimates of burden and cost to the lift 
manufacturers are given below. There is no burden to the general 
public.
    Affected Parties: Businesses or other for-profit entities.
    Respondents: Platform lift manufacturers and vehicle manufacturers/
alterers that install platform lifts in new motor vehicles before first 
vehicle sale.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10.
    Frequency of Collection: Per each production platform lift unit.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden:
Estimated burden to lift manufacturers to produce an insert for the 
vehicle owner's manual stating the lift's platform operating volume, 
maintenance schedule, and instructions regarding the lift operating 
procedures:
--10 manufacturers x 24 hrs. amortized over 5 yrs. = 48 hrs. per year.
Estimated burden to lift manufacturers to produce lift installation 
instructions identifying the vehicles on which the lift is designed to 
be installed:
--10 manufacturers x 24 hrs. amortized over 5 yrs. = 48 hrs. per year.
Estimated burden to lift manufacturers to produce two labels for 
operating and backup lift operation:
--10 manufacturers x 48 hrs. amortized over 5 yrs. = 96 hrs. per year.
Estimated cost to lift manufacturers to produce:
--Label for operating instructions--27,398 lifts x $0.13 per label = 
$3,561.74.
--Label for backup operations--27,398 lifts x $0.13 per label = 
$3,561.74.
--Owner's manual insert--27,398 lifts x$0.04 per page x 1 page = 
$1,095.92.

--Installation instructions--27,398 lifts x $0.04 per page x 1 page = 
$1,095.92.
    Although lift installation instructions are considerably more than 
one page, lift manufacturers already provide lift installation 
instructions in the normal course of business and one additional page 
should be adequate to allow the inclusion of FMVSS-specific 
information.
    Total estimated annual cost = $9,315.32.
    Total estimated hour burden per year = 192 hours.
    Addressee:Send comments regarding the burden estimate, including 
suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Office of Management and 
Budget, Attention: Desk Officer for the Office of the Secretary of 
Transportation, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503.
    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.

    Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1:48.

Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
