[U.S. DOT Docket Number NHTSA-2013-0138]


Reports, Forms and Record Keeping Requirements

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 collections and their expected 
burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was 
published on January 8, 2014 (79 FR 1426).

DATES: Comments must be submitted to OMB on or before April 18, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to the Office of Information and Regulatory 
Affairs, OMB, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: 
Desk Officer.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alex Ansley, Recall Management 
Division (NVS-215), Room W46-412, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., 
Washington, DC 20590. Telephone: (202) 493-0481.

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, see 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 collection of information:
    Title: Names and Addresses of First Purchasers of Motor Vehicles.
    OMB Number: 2127-0044.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses or others for profit.
    Abstract: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30117(b), a manufacturer of a motor 
vehicle or tire (except a retreaded tire) must maintain a record of the 
name and address of the first purchasers of each vehicle or tire it 
produces and, to the extent prescribed by regulation of the Secretary, 
must maintain a record of the name and address of the first purchaser 
of replacement equipment (except a tire) that the manufacturer 
produces.
    Vehicle manufacturers presently collect and maintain purchaser 
information for business reasons, such as for warranty claims 
processing and marketing, and experience with this statutory 
requirement has shown that manufacturers have retained this information 
in a manner sufficient to enable them to expeditiously notify vehicle 
purchasers in the case of a safety recall. Based on industry custom and 
this experience, NHTSA therefore determined that the regulation 
mentioned in 49 U.S.C. 30117(b) was unnecessary as to vehicle 
manufacturers. As an aside, the requirement for maintaining tire 
purchaser information are contained in 49 CFR part 574, Tire 
Identification and Recordkeeping, and the burden of that information 
collection is not part of this information collection.
    Estimated annual burden: Zero. As a practical matter, vehicle 
manufacturers are presently collecting from their dealers and then 
maintaining first purchaser information for their own commercial 
reasons. Therefore, the statutory requirement does not impose any 
additional burden.
    Number of respondents: We estimate that there are roughly 1,000 
manufacturers of motor vehicles that collect and keep first purchaser 
information.
    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.
    A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 
days of publication.

    Issued on: March 13, 2014.
Jennifer T. Timian,
Chief, Recall Management Division.
