The collection of informaiton contained in the Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Informaiton Database Notice of Proposed Rulemaking includes a report of harm which will essentially replace the current use of incident report forms (approved by OMB under control 3041-0029). The most recent estimate of the annual burden associated with the incident report forms is 2,451 hours. To calculate the change in total governmental burden associated with this rule, the 2,451 hours should be subtracted from teh 37,129 hours estimated in item 12. Accordingly, the overall informaiton collection burden increases as a result of this rule by 34,678 hours.
