Automatic Residential Garage Door Operators

AGENCY: Consumer Product Safety Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or 
CPSC) announces that it has submitted to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) a request for extension of approval of a collection of 
information associated with the Commission's safety standard for 
automatic residential garage door operators.

DATES: Written comments on this request for extension of approval of 
information collection requirements should be submitted by January 25, 
2013.

ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are 
received, the OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: CPSC Desk

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert H. Squibb, U.S. Consumer

    SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of October 4, 
2012 and October 17, 2012 (77 FR 60686, 77 FR 63800), the Consumer 
Product Safety Commission published a notice in accordance with 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 
35) to announce the agency's intention to seek extension of approval of 
the collection of information in the Safety Standard for Automatic 
Residential Garage Door Operators (16 CFR Part 1211). No comments were 
received in response to that notice. Therefore, by publication of this 
notice, the Commission announces that it has submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of approval of that 
collection of information without change.
    The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101- 
608, 104 Stat. 3110) requires all automatic residential garage door 
openers manufactured after January 1, 1993, to comply with the 
entrapment protection requirements of UL Standard 325 that were in 
effect on January 1, 1992. In 1992, the Commission codified the 
entrapment protection provisions of UL Standard 325 in effect on 
January 1, 1992, as the Safety Standard for Automatic Residential 
Garage Door Operators, 16 CFR Part 1211, Subpart A. Certification 
regulations implementing the standard require manufacturers, importers, 
and private labelers of garage door operators subject to the standard 
to test their products for compliance with the standard, and to 
maintain records of that testing. Those regulations are codified at 16 
CFR Part 1211, Subparts B and C.
    The Commission uses the records of testing and other information 
required by the certification regulations to determine that automatic 
residential garage door operators subject to the standard comply with 
its requirements. The Commission also uses this information to obtain 
corrective actions if garage door operators fail to comply with the 
standard in a manner that creates a substantial risk of injury to the 
public.
    We estimate that about 23 firms are subject to the testing and 
recordkeeping requirements of the certification regulations. We 
estimate that each respondent will spend 40 hours annually on the 
collection of information, for a total of about 920 hours. The 
estimated total annual cost to industry is approximately $25,429, based 
on 920 hours x $27.64 (Bureau of Labor Statistics, total compensation 
for all sales and office workers in goods-producing private industries: 
http://www.bls.gov/ncs).

    Dated: December 20, 2012.
Todd A. Stevenson,
Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission.
