Reports, Forms and Recordkeeping Requirements Agency Information 
Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, U.S. Department 
of Transportation.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information 
Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below has been forwarded to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR 
describes the nature of the information collection and its expected 
burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was 
published on May 30, 2012 [77 FR 31910]. No comments were received.
    This document describes the collection of information for which 
NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval. The collection of information 
described is the ``Roof Crush Resistance Phase in Reporting 
Requirements--Part 585.'' (OMB Control Number: 2127-XXXX)

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before September 10, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Louis N. Molino at U.S. Department 
of Transportation, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., West Building

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Title: Roof Crush Resistance Phase in Reporting Requirements--Part 
585.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-XXXX.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Abstract: 49 U.S.C. 30111 authorizes the issuance of Federal motor 
vehicle safety standards (FMVSSs) and regulations. The agency, in 
prescribing

[[Page 47915]]

a FMVSS or regulations, considers available relevant motor vehicle 
safety data, and consults with other agencies, as it deems appropriate. 
Further, the statute mandates that in issuing any FMVSS or regulation, 
the agency considers whether the standard or regulation is 
``reasonable, practicable and appropriate for the particular type of 
motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment for which it is 
prescribed,'' and whether such a standard will contribute to carrying 
out the purpose of the Act.
    The Secretary is authorized to invoke such rules and regulations, 
as deemed necessary to carry out these requirements. Using this 
authority, on May 12, 2009, the agency published a final rule (74 FR 
22348) upgrading the requirements of FMVSS No. 216, ``Roof crush 
resistance.'' The final rule contained a collection of information 
because of the proposed phase-in reporting requirements. The collection 
of information requires manufacturers of passenger cars and of trucks, 
buses and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight 
rating (GVWR) 2,722 kilograms (6,000 pounds) or less, to annually 
submit a report, and maintain records related to the report, concerning 
the number of such vehicles that meet two-sided quasi-static test 
requirements of FMVSS No. 216 during the three year phase-in of those 
requirements. The purpose of the reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements is to assist the agency in determining whether a 
manufacturer of vehicles has complied with the requirements during the 
phase-in period.
    Affected Public: Businesses.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,260 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 Departments 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: August 6, 2012.
Christopher J. Bonanti,
Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
