The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has requested comments on the time and expense burdens estimated for its proposed request for extension of approval of an information collection relating to the safety standard for multi-purpose lighters.

Issued in 1999, the standard (16 C.F.R. part 1212) requires multi-purpose lighter manufacturers and importers to issue certificates of compliance based on “a reason- able testing program.”The standard also requires that manufacturers and importers maintain certain records. CPSC specifically seeks comments on whether the estimates are accurate, the information collected could be improved and whether the use of information technology could minimize the estimated burdens. Comments are requested by May 5, 2014. See Federal Register, March 4, 2014.
