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 Importer 01–280) has petitioned NHTSA to decide whether nonconforming 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe multipurpose passenger vehicles are eligible for importation into the United States. The vehicles which BTE believes are substantially similar are 2001 Chevrolet E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1
