SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background In August 2002, the Commission received correspondence from the Consumer Federation of America (‘‘CFA’’) and eight other groups requesting several actions concerning ATVs. The Commission docketed their request that the Commission ban adultsize four wheel ATVs sold for the use of children under 16 years old as a petition. The petitioners assert that such ATVs pose an unreasonable risk of injury and death to children. The Commission published a notice in the Federal Register on October 18, 2002, requesting comments on the petition. 67 FR 64353. The Commission extended the comment period 60 days. 67 FR 78776. The Commission received a total of 78 comments in response to these Federal Register notices. In addition, the Commission held a public hearing in Morgantown, West Virginia on June 5, 2003, and the Chairman of the Commission conducted one public hearing in Anchorage, Alaska on July 8, 2003 and another in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 6, 2003. Presenters at these hearings discussed their opinions about the petition as well as other issues concerning ATVs. The staff reviewed the petition, comments and other relevant available information. The staff then forwarded a briefing package to the Commission, which is available on the Commission’s Web site http://www.cpsc.gov or from the Commission’s Office of the Secretary. The staff recommends that the Commission deny the petition. The staff concludes that the effectiveness of the ban requested by petitioners would likely be limited for the following reasons. A sales ban would primarily address how ATVs are sold, rather than how they are used after they are purchased, and is likely to have limited effect on deaths and injuries. CPSC does not have the authority to regulate how consumers use a product. Under current ATV Voluntary Action Plans, major VerDate jul<14>2003 17:18 Feb 10, 2005 Jkt 205001 distributors already prohibit their dealers from selling adult-size ATVs for the use of children. Also, numerous hangtags and warnings on ATVs inform consumers that adult-size ATVs are not intended for children. It is uncertain that a ban of the type petitioners request could have any greater impact than these existing measures. B. The Public Meeting The purpose of the public meeting is to provide a forum for oral presentations on the ATV petition and the CPSC staff briefing package. Participation in the meeting is open. See the DATES section of this notice for information on making requests to give oral presentations at the meeting and on making written submissions. Dated: February 8, 2005. Todd A. Stevenson, Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission.
