SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Title: 49 CFR Part 556, Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or 
Noncompliance.
    OMB Number: 2127-0045.
    Type of Request: Extension of a Currently Approved Collection.
    Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's 
statute at 49 U.S.C. 30118, Notification of Defects and Noncompliance, 
and 49 U.S.C. 30120, Remedies for Defects and Noncompliance, generally 
requires manufacturers of motor vehicles and items of replacement 
equipment to conduct a notification and remedy campaign (recall) when 
their products are determined to contain a safety-related defect or a 
noncompliance with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS). 
Those sections require a manufacturer of motor vehicles or motor 
vehicle equipment to notify distributors, dealers, and purchasers if 
any of the manufacturer's products are determined to either contain a 
safety-related defect or fail to comply with an applicable FMVSS. The 
manufacturer is under a concomitant obligation to remedy such defect or 
noncompliance. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), Exemptions 
a manufacturer may seek an exemption from these notification and remedy 
requirements on the basis that the defect or noncompliance is 
inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. NHTSA exercised 
this statutory authority to excuse inconsequential defects or 
noncompliances when it promulgated 49 CFR part 566, Exemption for 
Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance. This regulation establishes 
the procedures for manufacturers to submit exemption petitions to the 
agency and the procedures the agency will use in evaluating those 
petitions. Part 556 allows the agency to ensure that inconsequentiality 
petitions are both properly substantiated and efficiently processed.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit entities that 
manufacture or import motor vehicles or motor vehicle replacement 
equipment.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 150 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 Agency, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Agency'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 on: April 27, 2011.
Claude H. Harris,
Acting Associate Administrator for Enforcement.
