    Title: 49 CFR part 566 Manufacturer Identification.
    OMB Number: 2127-0043.
    Type of Request: Extension of a Currently Approved Collection.
    Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) has requested OMB to extend that agency's approval of the 
information collection that is incident to NHTSA's administration of 
the regulations at 49 CFR part 566 Manufacturer identification. Those 
regulations require manufacturers of motor vehicle or motor vehicle 
equipment, other than tires, to which a Federal motor vehicle safety 
standard (FMVSS) applies, to submit to NHTSA, on a one-time basis, 
identifying information on themselves and a description of the products 
that they manufacture to those standards. The information that must be 
submitted includes: (a) The full individual, partnership, or corporate 
name of the manufacturer; (b) the residence address of the manufacturer 
and State of incorporation, if applicable; and (c) a description of 
each type of motor vehicle or of covered equipment manufactured by the 
manufacturer, including, for motor vehicles, the approximate ranges of 
gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) for each type. The information must 
be submitted no later than 30 days after the manufacturer begins to 
manufacture motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment subject to the 
FMVSS. No specific form need be used for the submission of this 
information. A suggested form that can be used to submit the required 
information is included on pages 35 and 36 of a handbook entitled 
Requirements for Manufacturers of Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle 
Equipment that can be accessed on the agency's Web site at 
www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/maninfo. Manufacturers who have previously 
submitted identifying information must ensure that the information on 
file is accurate and complete by submitting revised information no 
later than 30 days after a change in the business that affects the 
validity of that information has occurred.
    This information collection is necessary to ensure that 
manufacturers of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment subject to 
the Federal motor vehicle safety standards identify themselves and 
their products to NHTSA so that NHTSA may contact them in the event 
that one of their products is suspected or found to contain a defect 
related to motor vehicle safety or fails to comply with an

applicable FMVSS. Manufacturers of defective or noncompliant motor 
vehicles or replacement motor vehicle equipment are required under 49 
U.S.C. 30118 to furnish notification of the defect or noncompliance to 
the Secretary of Transportation, and as well as to owners, purchasers, 
and dealers of the motor vehicle or replacement equipment, and to 
remedy the defect or noncompliance without charge to the owner.
    Affected Public: New manufacturers of of motor vehicles and motor 
vehicle equipment, other than tires, subject to the Federal motor 
vehicle safety standards.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 133 hours; $3,990.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
    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.

Acting Director, Office of Vehicle Safety, Compliance.
