Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring to

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB 
for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register 
providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of 
the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of 
information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must 
be included in such a document. Under OMB's regulation (at 5 CFR 
1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following:
    (i.) 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;
    (ii.) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii.) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected and;
    (iv.) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information 
on those

who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public 
comments on the following proposed collections of information:
    Title: Automobile Parts Content Labeling for 49 CFR part 583.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0573.
    Form Number: The collection of this information uses no standard 
form.
    Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval 
date.
    Abstract: 49 CFR 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. The labels, which are affixed to 
new passenger motor vehicles, serve 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.
    Estimated Annual Burden: NHTSA anticipates approximately 20 vehicle 
manufacturers will be affected by these reporting requirements. NHTSA 
does not believe that any of these 20 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.
    NHTSA estimates that the vehicle manufacturers will incur a total 
reporting annual hour burden and cost burden of 50,440 hours and 
$3,716,740 respectively. The amount includes annual burden hours 
incurred by multi-stage manufacturers and motor vehicle equipment 
suppliers.
    Number of Respondents: 20.
    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.

    Issued in Washington, DC, under authority delegated in 49 CFR 
1.95.
Raymond R. Posten,
Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
