Notice of Receipt of Petition for Decision That Nonconforming 2004 Land Rover Range Rover Multipurpose Passenger Vehicles Are Eligible for Importation, 36373-36375 [E8-14420]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 124 / Thursday, June 26, 2008 / Notices rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES and on one sidewall with the information specified in S5.5(e) through (h) according to the phase-in schedule specified in S7 of this standard. The markings must be placed between the maximum section width and the bead on at least one sidewall, unless the maximum section width of the tire is located in an area that is not more than one-fourth of the distance from the bead to the shoulder of the tire. If the maximum section width falls within that area, those markings must appear between the bead and a point one-half the distance from the bead to the shoulder of the tire, on at least one sidewall. The markings must be in letters and numerals not less than 0.078 inches high and raised above or sunk below the tire surface not less than 0.015 inch. (a) The symbol DOT, which constitutes a certification that the tire conforms to applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards; (b) The tire size designation as listed in the documents and publications specified in S4.1.1 of this standard; (c) The maximum permissible inflation pressure, subject to the limitations of S5.5.4 through S5.5.6 of this standard; (d) The maximum load rating; (e) The generic name of each cord material used in the plies (both sidewall and tread area) of the tire; (f) The actual number of plies in the sidewall, and the actual number of plies in the tread area, if different; (g) The term ‘‘tubeless’’ or ‘‘tube type,’’ as applicable; and (h) The word ‘‘radial,’’ if the tire is a radial ply tire. Goodyear explains that the noncompliance is that the sidewall marking incorrectly identifies the number of plies in the tread of the tire. Specifically, the tires in question were inadvertently manufactured with ‘‘Tread 3 Polyester + 2 Steel’’ marked on the sidewall. The labeling should have been ‘‘Tread 2 Polyester + 2 Steel + 2 Polyester’’. Goodyear states that it discovered the mold labeling error that caused the noncompliance during a routine quality audit. Goodyear makes the argument that the subject tires were manufactured with the correct number of plies in the tread and only the sidewall marking is incorrect. Goodyear also contends that all of the markings related to tire service (load capacity, corresponding inflation pressure, etc.) are correct and that the mislabeling of these tires is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety because the tires meet or exceed all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety performance standards. Goodyear also points out that NHTSA has previously granted petitions for sidewall marking noncompliances that it believes are similar to the instant noncompliance. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:05 Jun 25, 2008 Jkt 214001 Goodyear also stated that it will correct the problem that caused these errors so that they will not be repeated in future production. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, these provisions only apply to vehicles and equipment that have already passed from the manufacturer to an owner, purchaser, or dealer. Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments on this petition.

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.
    Wallace Environmental Testing Laboratories, Inc. of Houston, Texas 
(WETL) (Registered Importer 90-005) has petitioned NHTSA to decide 
whether nonconforming 2004 Land Rover Range Rover multipurpose 
passenger vehicles are eligible for importation into the United States. 
The vehicles which WETL believes are substantially similar are 2004 
Land Rover Range Rover multipurpose passenger vehicles 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 
2004 Land Rover Range Rover multipurpose passenger vehicles to their 
U.S.-certified counterparts, and found the vehicles to be substantially 
similar with respect to compliance with most FMVSS.
    WETL submitted information with its petition intended to 
demonstrate that non-U.S. certified 2004 Land Rover Range Rover 
multipurpose passenger vehicles, 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 2004 
Land Rover Range Rover multipurpose passenger vehicles are identical to 
their U.S.-certified counterparts with respect to compliance with 
Standard Nos. 102 Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, 
and Transmission Braking Effect, 103 Windshield Defrosting and 
Defogging Systems, 104 Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems, 106 Brake 
Hoses, 113 Hood Latch System, 114 Theft Protection, 116 Motor Vehicle 
Brake Fluids, 118 Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel 
Systems, 119 New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other than Passenger 
Cars, 124 Accelerator Control Systems, 135 Light Vehicle Brake Systems, 
201 Occupant Protection in Interior Impact, 202 Head Restraints, 204 
Steering Control Rearward Displacement, 205 Glazing Materials, 206 Door 
Locks and Door Retention Components, 207 Seating Systems, 208 Occupant 
Crash Protection 209 Seat Belt Assemblies, 210 Seat Belt Assembly 
Anchorages, 212 Windshield Mounting, 214 Side Impact Protection, 216 
Roof Crush Resistance, 219 Windshield Zone Intrusion, 225 Child 
Restraint Anchorage Systems, and 302 Flammability of Interior 
Materials.
    Petitioner also contends that the vehicle is capable of being 
readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated:
    Standard No. 101 Controls and Displays: (a) Inscription of the word 
``brake'' on the instrument cluster in place of the international ECE 
warning symbol, and (b) replacement or conversion of the speedometer to 
read in miles per hour.
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: Installation of U.S.-model headlamps, and rear mounted side 
marker lamps.
    Standard No. 111 Rearview Mirrors: Installation of a U.S.-model 
passenger side rearview mirror, or inscription of the required warning 
statement on the face of that mirror.
    Standard No. 120 Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other 
than Passenger Cars: Installation of a tire information placard.
    Standard No. 301 Fuel System Integrity: Installation of U.S.-model 
fuel system rollover valve and associated mounting hardware.
    The petitioner additionally states that a vehicle identification 
plate must be affixed to the vehicles near the left windshield post to 
meet the requirements of 49 CFR part 565.
