Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: The Department of Transportation invites public comments about 
our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves 
labeling information from manufacturers of brake hoses, end fittings, 
and brake hose assemblies. The information to be collected will be used 
to and/or is necessary to satisfy the requirements of Federal Motor 
Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 106, Brake Hoses. We are required 
to publish this notice in the Federal Register by the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by March 24, 2014.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments [identified by Docket No. DOT-NHTSA-
2013-0142] through one of the following methods:
    Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the 
online instructions for submitting comments.
    Fax: 1-202-493-2251.
    Mail or Hand Delivery: Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department 
of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., West Building, Room W12-
140, Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, except on Federal holidays.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joshua Fikentscher, Office of Vehicle 
Safety Compliance (NVS-120), National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration, West Building--4th Floor--Room W43-467, 1200 New Jersey 
Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590. Mr. Fikentscher's phone number is 
(202) 366-1688.
    Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring 
to its OMB Control Number.

    OMB Control Number: 2127-0052.
    Title: Brake Hose Manufacturers Identification.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved information 
    Background: 49 U.S.C. 30101 et seq., as amended (``the Safety 
Act''), authorizes NHTSA to issue FMVSSs. The Safety Act mandates that 
in issuing any FMVSSs, the agency is to consider whether the standard 
is reasonable and appropriate for the particular type of motor vehicle 
or item of motor vehicle equipment for which it is prescribed. Using 
this authority, FMVSS No. 106, Brake Hoses, was issued. This standard 
specifies labeling and performance requirements which apply to all 
manufacturers of brake hoses and brake hose end fittings, and to those 
who assemble brake hoses. Prior to assembling or selling brake hoses, 
these entities must register their identification marks with NHTSA to 
comply with the labeling requirements of this standard. In accordance 
with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the agency must obtain OMB approval 
to continue collecting labeling information. Currently, there are 1,944 
manufacturers of brake hoses and end fittings, and brake hose 
assemblers, registered with NHTSA. However, only approximately 20 
respondents annually request to have their symbol added to or removed 
from the NHTSA database. To comply with this standard, each brake hose 
manufacturer or assembler must contact NHTSA and state that they want 
to be added to or removed from the NHTSA database of registered brake 
hose manufacturers. This action is usually initiated by the 
manufacturer with a brief written request via U.S. mail, facsimile, an 
email message, or a telephone call. Currently, a majority of the 
requests are received via U.S. mail and the follow-up paperwork is 
conducted via facsimile, U.S. mail, or electronic mail. The estimated 
cost for complying with this regulation is $100 per hour. Therefore, 
the total annual cost is estimated to be $3,000 (time burden of 30 
hours x $100 cost per hour).
    Respondents: Business or other for profit.
    Number of Respondents: 20.
    Number of Responses: 20.
    Total Annual Burden: 30 hours.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the Department's 
performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the 
Department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the 
information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized 
without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency 
will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's 
clearance of this information collection.

    Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1:48.

David Hines,
Director, Office of Crash Avoidance Standards.
