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 5CFR 
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 performanceb 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;
    (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: Air Bag Deactivation.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0588.
    Affected Public: Private individuals, fleet owners and lessees, 
motor vehicle dealers, repair business.
    Abstract: If a private individual or lessee wants to install an air 
bag on-off switch to turn-off either or both frontal air bags, they 
must complete Form OMB 2127-0588 to certify certain statements 
regarding use of the switch. The dealer or business must, in turn, 
submit the completed forms to NHTSA within seven days. The submission 
of the completed forms by the dealers and repair business to NHTSA, as 
required, will serve the agency several purposes. They will aid the 
agency in monitoring the number of authorization requests submitted and 
the pattern in claims of risk group membership. The completed forms 
will enable the agency to determine whether the dealers and repair 
business are complying with the terms of the exemption, which include a 
requirement that the dealers and repair businesses accept only fully 
completed forms. Finally, submission of the completed forms to the 
agency will promote honesty and accuracy in the filling out of the 
forms by vehicle owners. The air bag on-off switches are installed only 
in vehicles in which the risk of harm needs to be minimized on a case-
by-case basis.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 375 hours.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 750.
    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.
