Office of Hazardous Materials Safety; Notice of Application for Special Permits, 71735-71736 [07-6078]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 242 / Tuesday, December 18, 2007 / Notices owner manuals contain the correct information required for advanced airbags, and that it has no record of customers contacting the company with inquiries, complaints, or comments with regard to air bag warning labels. NHTSA Decision The following explains our rationale. NHTSA agrees with Bentley that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. The noncompliant labels lack a statement that the vehicle is equipped with advanced airbags. However, both the passenger air bag telltale lamp and the owner’s manual indicate the presence of advanced airbags. The noncompliant sun visor label contains all of the specific warnings required on the compliant label: Death or serious injury can occur; the back seat is the safest place for children; never put a rear-facing child seat in the front; and always use seat belts and child restraints. The noncompliant label also warns occupants to sit as far back as possible from the air bag. The noncompliant label lacks the recommendation to see the owner’s manual for more information about air bags. Because the noncompliant permanent sun visor label contains virtually the same information as required by S4.5.1(b)(3), the absence of this reference to the owner’s manual and the lack of a reference to ‘‘advanced air bags’’ do not constitute a consequential safety issue. The noncompliant removable dash label contains similar information to that required by S4.5.1(e)(3): Children can be killed or seriously injured by the air bag; the back seat is the safest place for children; always use seat belts or child restraints. However, the noncompliant dash label does not contain the statement, ‘‘Never put a rear-facing child seat in the front’’, or the recommendation to see the owner’s manual for more information about air bags. This label is a removable label that most likely will not stay on the vehicle once it is purchased. The statement, ‘‘Never put a rear-facing child seat in the front’’ is present on the permanent sun visor label and visible to the vehicle user. As discussed above with regard to the sun visor label, the lack of the references to advanced air bags and the owner’s manual are not consequential in light of the presence of the critical warning on the dash label. Therefore, NHTSA agrees with Bentley’s assessment that this noncompliance will not result in any consequential safety risk. In consideration of the foregoing, NHTSA has decided that Bentley has met its burden of persuasion that the labeling noncompliance described is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Accordingly, Bentley’s petition is granted and the petitioner is exempted from the obligation of providing notification of, and a remedy for, the noncompliance.
