Summary

 

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) announces that the Commission has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of approval of a collection of information associated with the CPSC's Safety Standards for Full-Size Baby Cribs and Non-Full-Size Baby Cribs (OMB No. 3041-0147). In the Federal Register of December 24, 2013 (78 FR 77660), the CPSC published a notice to announce the agency's intention to seek extension of approval of the collection of information. One commenter stated that drop-side cribs should not be eliminated because the problem is caused by cheap plastic hardware provided by the manufacturers. That comment is outside the scope of the proposed renewal request, which sought comments on the burden hours associated with recordkeeping requirements in the safety standards. Therefore, by publication of this notice, the Commission announces that CPSC has submitted to the OMB a request for extension of approval of that collection of information, without change.
