collection of information may be obtained at no charge from Deborah 
Mazyck, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Room W43-443, NVS-131, 
Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck's telephone number is (202) 366-4139. 
Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring to 
its OMB Control Number.

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 5 CFR 
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 performance 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 and;
    (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: Automobile Parts Content Labeling for 49 CFR Part 583.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0573.
    Form Number: The collection of this information uses no standard 
form.
    Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval 
date.
    Abstract: 49 CFR part 583 establishes requirements for the 
disclosure of information relating to the countries of origin of the 
equipment of new passenger motor vehicles. This information will be 
used by NHTSA to determine whether manufacturers are complying with the 
American Automobile Labeling Act (49 U.S.C. 32304). The American 
Automobile Labeling Act requires all new passenger motor vehicles 
(including passenger cars, certain small buses, all light trucks and 
multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 
8,500 pounds or less), to bear labels providing information about 
domestic and foreign content of their equipment. The labels, which are 
affixed to new passenger motor vehicles, serve as an aid to potential 
purchasers in the selection of new passenger motor vehicles by 
providing them with information about the value of the U.S./Canadian 
and foreign parts of each vehicle, the countries of origin of the 
engine and transmission, and the site of the vehicle's final assembly.
    Estimated Annual Burden: NHTSA anticipates approximately 21 vehicle 
manufacturers will be affected by these reporting requirements. NHTSA 
does not believe that any of these 21 manufacturers are a small 
business (i.e., one that employs less than 500 persons) since each 
manufacturer employs more than 500 persons. Manufacturers of new 
passenger motor vehicles, including passenger cars, certain small 
buses, and light trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 
pounds or less, must file a report annually.
    NHTSA estimates that the vehicle manufacturers will incur a total 
reporting annual hour burden and cost burden of 52,962 hours and 
$2,439,108, respectively. The amount includes annual burden hours 
incurred by multi-stage manufacturers and motor vehicle equipment 
suppliers.
    Number of Respondents: 21.
    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.
