    Title: Defect/Noncompliance Report and Campaign Update Report.

    OMB Control Number: 1625-0010.

    Summary: Manufacturers whose products contain defects that create a substantial risk of personal injury to the public or fail to comply with an applicable Coast Guard safety standard are required to conduct defect notification and recall campaigns in accordance with 46 U.S.C. 4310. Regulations in 33 CFR 179 require manufacturers to submit certain reports to the Coast Guard concerning progress made in notifying owners and making repairs.

    Need: Under 46 U.S.C. 4310(d) and (e); and 33 CFR 179.13 and 179.15, the manufacturer shall provide the Commandant of the Coast Guard with an initial report consisting of certain information about the defect notification and recall campaign being conducted and follow up reports describing progress. Upon receipt of information from a manufacturer indicating the initiation of a recall, the Recreational Boating Product Assurance Branch assigns a recall campaign number, and sends the manufacturer Coast Guard Forms CG-4917 and CG-4918 for supplying the information.

    Forms: CG-4917, Defect/Noncompliance Report and CG-4918, Campaign Update Report.

    Respondents: Manufacturers of boats and certain items of “designated” associated equipment (inboard engines, outboard motors, sterndrive engines or an inflatable personal flotation device approved under 46 CFR 160.076).

    Frequency: Quarterly.

    Hour Burden Estimate: The estimated burden has decreased from 207 hours to 16.5 hours a year due to the change in the average number of recall campaigns conducted during the last 21 years.
