WASHINGTON (April 15, 2014) — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has sent the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for continued information gathering from brake hose manufacturers under federal brake hose safety standards.
Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, all government agencies must reapply periodically for approval to gather information from regulated companies. In making those applications, the agencies must consider whether the information request is reasonable and appropriate.
NHTSA transmitted a routine request on continued information gathering in support of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 106, Brake Hoses, according to an April 14 Federal Register notice.
The agency told OMB that manufacturers of brake hoses and brake hose assemblies must register their identification marks with NHTSA to be in compliance with the labeling requirements of the brake hose standard.
Of the 1,944 manufacturers of brake hoses, end fittings and assemblies registered with NHTSA, about 20 request annually to have their symbol added or removed, the agency said.
May 14 is the deadline for comments to OMB on the request.
Do so-called “Religious Freedom” laws in place in some states impact how companies do business, and do you support them?
|I support them and don’t think they have any effect on how I do business||
|I don’t support them; they have a negative effect on businesses||
|I think more research should be done about these laws’ impact before they’re enacted||
|They’re horrible, an infringement on the rights of certain groups or individuals and shouldn’t be the law anywhere||
