Notice of Receipt of Petition for Decision That Nonconforming 1999-2007 Yamaha Drag Star 1100 Motorcycles Are Eligible for Importation, 59586-59588 [E7-20774]

Download as PDF 59586 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 203 / Monday, October 22, 2007 / Notices ebenthall on PRODPC61 with NOTICES SUMMARY: This document announces a decision by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that certain 1999–2000 Hatty 45 foot double-axle trailers that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) are eligible for importation into the United States because they have safety features that comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS. DATES: This decision was effective April 19, 2007. The agency notified the petitioner at that time that the petition had been granted. This document provides public notice of that decision. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Coleman Sachs, Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance, NHTSA (202–366–3151). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle originally manufactured for importation into and sale in the United States, certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same model year as the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to conform to all applicable FMVSS. Where there is no substantially similar U.S.-certified motor vehicle, 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B) permits a nonconforming motor vehicle to be admitted into the United States if its safety features comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence as NHTSA decides to be adequate. Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in the Federal Register. Barry Taylor Enterprises of Richmond, California (BTE)(Registered VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:02 Oct 19, 2007 Jkt 214001 Importer 01–280) petitioned NHTSA to decide whether 1999–2000 Hatty 45 foot double-axle trailers are eligible for importation into the United States. NHTSA published notice of petition on November 21, 2006 (71 FR 67424) to afford an opportunity for public comment. The reader is referred to that notice for a thorough description of the petition. Comments were received in response to the notice of the petition from ArvinMeritor, Inc., d.b.a. Meritor WABCO (WABCO), the manufacturer of the ABS braking system components installed on the subject vehicles. WABCO stated that the purpose for its comments are; to provide detailed information about the capabilities of the ABS system installed on the subject vehicles and to describe differences between that system and those installed in typical U.S. conforming vehicles regarding the activation signal and control system programming for the lamp check function of the antilock malfunction indicator lamp (required by paragraph S5.2.3.3 of FMVSS No. 121 Air Brake Systems). In its review of the petition, NHTSA found insufficient data, views, and arguments for it to make a determination as to conformity of the subject vehicles with FMVSS No. 223, Rear Impact Guards and FMVSS No. 224, Rear Impact Protection. As a result, NHTSA requested that BTE provide test data demonstrating that the rear impact guards originally installed on the subject trailers met or were capable of being altered to meet the requirements of FMVSS Nos. 223 and 224. BTE responded by stating that it had been unable to obtain the necessary test documentation. As an alternative to providing the test data, BTE proposed that conformance could be achieved by installing a replacement rear impact guard that was certified by its manufacturer as conforming to all applicable requirements of FMVSS No. 223, provided that it was installed as required by FMVSS No. 224. NHTSA’s Analysis: After reviewing the petition as well as the supplemental information received from both BTE and WABCO, NHTSA determined that the subject vehicles were capable of being altered to conform with all applicable safety standards. However, the agency concluded that the RI must demonstrate, in the conformity statement submitted for any vehicle imported under this eligibility decision, that the following modifications, in addition to those included in the instant petition, have been made: Standard No. 121 Air Brake Systems: inspection of the vehicles and rewiring PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and/or reprogramming of the ABS brake control system to ensure that the antilock malfunction indicator lamp functions as required by the standard. Standard No. 223, Rear Impact Guards: installation of a rear impact guard that is certified as conforming to the requirements of FMVSS No. 223. Standard No. 224, Rear Impact Protection: installation of a rear impact guard that is certified as conforming to the requirements of FMVSS No. 223 in a manner that meets the requirements of FMVSS No. 224. Based on these considerations, the agency decided to grant this petition. Final Decision Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA has decided that 1999–2000 Hatty 45 foot double-axle trailers that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS have safety features that comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS. Vehicle Eligibility Number for Subject Vehicles The importer of a vehicle admissible under any final decision must indicate on the form HS–7 accompanying entry the appropriate vehicle eligibility number indicating that the vehicle is eligible for entry. VCP–38 is the vehicle eligibility number assigned to vehicles admissible under this notice of final decision.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not 
originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be 
refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that 
the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
originally manufactured for sale in the United States, certified under 
49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same model year as the model of the motor 
vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to 
conform to all applicable FMVSS.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    US SPECS of Aberdeen, Maryland (Registered Importer 03-321) has 
petitioned NHTSA to decide whether non-U.S. certified 1999-2007 Yamaha 
Drag Star 1100 motorcycles are eligible for importation into the United 
States. The vehicles that U.S. SPECS believes are substantially similar 
are 1999-2007 V Star 1100 motorcycles that were manufactured for sale 
in the United States and certified by their manufacturer as conforming 
to all applicable FMVSS.
    The petitioner claims that it carefully compared non-U.S. certified 
1999-2007 Yamaha Drag Star 1100 motorcycles to their U.S. certified 
counterparts, and found the vehicles to be substantially similar with 
respect to compliance with most FMVSS.
    US SPECS submitted information with its petition intended to 
demonstrate that non-U.S. certified 1999-2007 Yamaha Drag Star 1100 
motorcycles, as originally manufactured, conform to many FMVSS in the 
same manner as their U.S. certified counterparts, or are capable of 
being readily altered to conform to those standards.
    Specifically, the petitioner claims that non-U.S. certified 1999-
2007 Yamaha Drag Star 1100 motorcycles are identical to their U.S. 
certified counterparts with respect to compliance with Standard Nos. 
106 Brake Hoses, 116 Brake Fluid, 119 New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles 
other than Passenger Cars, and 122 Motorcycle Brake Systems.
    The petitioner further contends that the vehicles are capable of 
being readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated below:
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: Inspection of all vehicles and replacement of the following 
with U.S.-certified components on vehicles not already so equipped: (a) 
Headlamps; (b) front and rear turn signal lamps; (c) tail lamp 
assembly; (d) front and rear side-mounted reflex reflectors; and (e) 
rear-mounted reflex reflector.
    Standard No. 111 Rearview Mirrors: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
installation of U.S.-conforming model rearview mirrors on vehicles that 
are not already so equipped.
    Standard No. 120 Tire Selection and Rims for Vehicles other than 
Passenger

[[Page 59588]]

Cars: Installation of a tire information placard.
    Standard No. 123 Motorcycle Controls and Displays: Installation of 
a U.S.-model speedometer, or modification of the speedometer so that it 
reads in miles per hour.
    Standard No. 205 Glazing Materials: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
removal of noncompliant glazing or replacement of the glazing with 
U.S.-certified components on vehicles that are not already so equipped.
    All comments received before the close of business on the closing 
date indicated above will be considered, and will be available for 
examination in the docket at the above address both before and after 
that date. To the extent possible, comments filed after the closing 
date will also be considered. Notice of final action on the petition 
will be published in the Federal Register pursuant to the authority 
indicated below.
