Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 108 / Wednesday, June 4, 2008 / Notices The proposal was accepted by the Executive Committee (AC.3) of the 1998 Global Agreement and was assigned to the Group of Experts for Brakes and Running Gear (GRRF) for technical development under the sponsorship of the U.S. and the European Commission. The GRRF, through its regular sessions and several informal working group meetings chaired by the U.S and the European Commission, worked over the past year to prepare the draft regulation and has forwarded it to the AC.3 for establishment through consensus voting by the Contracting Parties to the 1998 Global Agreement. The draft GTR can be found in the docket for this notice (ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/2008/69). Noting that the performance, equipment, and other requirements of the GTR are based on the U.S. final rule (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 126), NHTSA is requesting comment on the draft document to inform its decision for the vote, which is scheduled for the June 2008 session of WP.29. It is expected that if the regulation is established and subsequently adopted by the Contracting Parties, the potential benefits that have been calculated for the U.S. market may very well be duplicated in many other countries and jurisdictions worldwide. Publication of this information is in accordance with the NHTSA Statement of Policy regarding Agency Policy Goals and Public Participation in the Implementation of the 1998 Global Agreement on Global Technical Regulations. Issued on: May 30, 2008. Stephen R. Kratzke, Associate Administrator for Rulemaking. [FR Doc.
