The Kansas City Southern Railway Company-Abandonment Exemption-Line in Warren County, MS; Vicksburg Southern Railroad, Inc.-Discontinuance of Service Exemption-Line in Warren County, MS, 52430 [E7-17674]

Download as PDF 52430 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 177 / Thursday, September 13, 2007 / Notices required by 49 CFR parts 541.5 and 541.6 (marking of major component parts and replacement parts). NHTS notes that if BMW wishes in the future to modify the device on which this exemption is based, the company may have to submit a petition to modify the exemption. Part 543.7(d) states that a Part 543 exemption applies only to vehicles that belong to a line exempted under this part and equipped with the anti-theft device on which the line’s exemption is based. Further, § 543.9(c)(2) provides for the submission of petitions ‘‘to modify an exemption to permit the use of an antitheft device similar to but differing from the one specified in that exemption.’’ The agency wishes to minimize the administrative burden that Part 543.9(c)(2) could place on exempted vehicle manufacturers and itself. The agency did not intend Part 543 to require the submission of a modification petition for every change to the components or design of an antitheft device. The significance of many such changes could be de minimis. Therefore, NHTSA suggests that if the manufacturer contemplates making any changes the effects of which might be characterized as de minimis, it should consult the agency before preparing and submitting a petition to modify.
