NHTSA seeks input on impact of rules on small entities

  • 10-Dec-2008 02:10 EST

Now is the time for small businesses and other small entities to tell NHTSA (U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) what kind of impact a certain set of rules has on them. NHTSA will seek comment on 10 different sets of rules in each of the next 10 years, beginning with a set for which comments are due on Jan. 30. This first set of rules comprises 49 CFR (Code of Federal Regulation) 571.223 through 571.500 and parts 575 and 579. The rules address rear impact, child-restraint anchorages, fuel system integrity (including compressed natural gas), flammability of interior components, electric-powered vehicles (electrolyte spillage and electrical shock protection), interior trunk releases, platform lifts, consumer information, and reporting of information and communications about potential defects.
