Fourth, with respect to the granting of exemptions to enable companies to fmvs in such a program, the Agency seeks comments on the nature of the safety and any other analyses that it should perform in assessing the merits of individual exemption petitions and on the types of terms and conditions it should consider attaching to exemptions to protect public safety and facilitate the Agency’s monitoring and learning from the testing and deployment, while preserving cmvss freedom to innovate.

Third, we are incorporating an optional alternative compliance process for manufacturers whose helmets do not comply with the proposed dimensional and compression requirements, but do comply with the performance requirements and all other aspects of FMVSS No.

InterRegs: 49 CFR Part (FMVSS ) | US – Federal

The focus of this notice is rules that specifically relate to passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, trailers, motorcycles, and motor vehicle equipment. Optional early compliance is permitted.

Additionally, this final rule increases a manufacturer’s design flexibility while providing opportunity to fmgss cost without compromising safety. This final rule applies to electric vehicles EVs and to those hybrid vehicles HVs that are capable of propulsion in any forward or reverse gear without the vehicle’s internal combustion engine ICE operating.

Implementation of the new standard will enable vehicle manufacturers to develop safety applications that employ V2V communications as an input, two of which are estimated to prevent hundreds of thousands of crashes and prevent over one thousand fatalities mfvss. NHTSA will publish a list of helmets that have complied with the alternative compliance process and can therefore be certified by their manufacturers.

Thompson requested we revise the activation process for red and amber signal warning lamps on school buses to require a new intermediate step during which both colors 30 activated fmvsx and flash in an alternating pattern and that we decouple the process by which lamps fmvws to the red-only configuration from the opening of the bus entrance door.

The Agency seeks these comments from interested stakeholders, including State and local authorities, companies, researchers, safety advocates and other experts interested in, engaged in or planning to become engaged in the design, development, testing, and deployment of motor vehicles with high and full driving automation. This document denies a rulemaking petition submitted by Mr.

Cornell Law School Search Cornell. Each dummy shall be restrained only by means that are installed in the vehicle for protection at its seating position. Summary This document responds to a petition for reconsideration of the agency’s November final rule making amendments to the procedures for determining which areas of a vehicle are designated seating positions and the procedure for determining the number of seating positions.


Each vehicle with a GVWR of 10, pounds or less shall meet the requirements of any applicable barrier crash test. Comments must be received on or before March 24, This material is intended to better inform the public as they prepare comments in response to the RFC. You should submit comments early enough to ensure that Docket Management receives them not later than February 22, All manual shutoff valves are to be in the open position.

We believe that, by requiring that ESC systems be installed on the rest of truck tractors and large buses, this final rule will prevent 40 to 56 percent of untripped rollover crashes and 14 percent of loss-of-control crashes. This standard will help to ensure that blind, visually impaired, and other pedestrians are able to detect and recognize nearby hybrid and electric vehicles, as required by the PSEA.

Standards are also promulgated in other countries.

A flame is applied to a polymer sample for each of the UL 94 tests; fmvsw are then observed for the extent and rate of fire propagation. The focus of this notification is rules that specifically relate to passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, trailers, motorcycles, and motor vehicle equipment.

The information shall be visible to a person standing next to the vehicle during refueling, in English, and in letters and numbers that are not less than 4. Without a mandate to require and standardize V2V communications, the agency believes that manufacturers will not be able to move forward in an efficient way and that a critical mass of equipped vehicles would take many years to develop, if ever.

These requirements and the associated test procedures would identify those helmets whose physical characteristics indicate that they likely cannot meet the existing performance requirements of the standard. Public comments are welcome at this meeting, but all should be oral, and any supporting presentations or materials should be submitted to fmfss docket for consideration.

Fmvsss Agencies have also received a letter opposing any extension of the comment period. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the proposed rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register fmvsss of May 22, ESC systems in truck tractors and large buses are designed to reduce untripped rollovers and mitigate severe understeer or oversteer conditions that lead to loss of control by using automatic computer-controlled braking and reducing engine torque output.

This final rule increases harmonization with existing requirements in European regulations. You should submit your comments to ensure that Docket Management receives them not later than July 20, Each passenger carmultipurpose fmvvss vehicletruckand bus with 3003 GVWR of 10, pounds or less that uses CNG as a motor fuel dmvss that is manufactured on or after September 1, shall meet the requirements of S6, except S6.


These comments will aid the Agency in setting research priorities as well as inform its subsequent actions to lay a path for innovative vehicle designs and technologies that feature ADSs.

We propose to permit optional early compliance with the amended requirements. After consideration of the petitions and all supporting information, NHTSA has decided to grant the petitions for four of the discrete changes, deny one, and request comment in a separate document for the sixth proposed change.

The effective date of this final rule is September 26, The petitioners request that NHTSA require underride fmbss on vehicles not currently required by the FMVSSs to have guards, notably, single unit trucks, and improve the standards’ requirements for all guards, including guards now required 33 heavy trailers and semitrailers. You should submit comments early enough to ensure that Docket Management receives them not later than July 30, Written comments must be received on or before March fmvsd, in order to be considered timely.

49 CFR 571.303 – Standard No. 303; Fuel system integrity of compressed natural gas vehicles.

Examples of Dmvss standards:. The effective date of this final rule is November 29, This document denies a petition for rulemaking submitted by Mr.

The lateral moving barrier crash test conditions are those specified in S8. NHTSA will determine whether to issue a rule in the course of the rulemaking proceeding, in accordance with statutory criteria. Summary By initiating rulemaking to consider enhancing related safety standards, this notice grants the part of the petition for rulemaking submitted by Ms.

As technology evolves and in anticipation of requests to test and further develop high and full ADS, including those in vehicles without traditional controls necessary for a human driver, NHTSA is issuing this ANPRM to obtain public comments on the factors and structure that are appropriate for the Agency to consider in designing a national pilot program that will enable it to facilitate, monitor and learn from the testing and development of the emerging advanced vehicle safety technologies and to assure the safety of those activities.

The compliance date for the amendments in this final rule is September 27, This final rule is effective September 27, If the vehicle has any high pressure electric shutoff valve that is normally open when the electrical system is activated, it is open at the time of the barrier crash. NHTSA and FMCSA have received requests to mfvss the comment period for their proposal that would require vehicles with a fmvsd vehicle weight rating of more than 11, We also request comments on ways to make these regulations easier to read and understand.
