The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU, Pub. L. 109–59, as amended by Pub.

Because there is no surface transportation authorization legislation or other authorizing vehicle yet in place to state the structure and funding of the UTC Program beyond Federal Fiscal Year 2009, and because of the burden that would be placed on applicants to pursue a competition process that has a high likelihood of being voided should a multi-year, surface transportation authorization substantially change the terms and conditions of the UTC Program and grants to be issued under that program, the Research and Innovative Technology Administration is suspending these competitions until such time as a multiyear surface transportation authorization has been enacted.

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 or 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, LLC (``US SPECS''), of Havre de Grace, Maryland 
(Registered Importer 03-321) has petitioned NHTSA to decide whether 
non-U.S. certified 2001 and 2002 Ducati MH900e motorcycles are eligible 
for importation into the United States. The vehicles that US SPECS 
believes are substantially similar are 2001 and 2002 Ducati MH900e 
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 
2001 and 2002 Ducati MH900e 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 2001 and 2002 Ducati MH900e 
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 2001 
and 2002 Ducati MH900e motorcycles are identical to their U.S.-
certified counterparts with respect to compliance with Standard Nos. 
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. 106 Brake Hoses: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
replacement of noncompliant brake hoses with U.S.-model hoses on 
vehicles that are not already so equipped.
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: Installation of the following U.S.-model components on 
vehicles not already so equipped: (a) Headlamp; (b) front and rear 
side-mounted reflex reflectors; (c) rear-mounted reflex reflector; (d) 
turn signal lamps; and (e) taillamp.
    Standard No. 111 Rearview Mirrors: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
replacement of noncompliant mirrors with U.S.-model components on 
vehicles that are not already so equipped.
    Standard No. 120 Tire Selection and Rims for Vehicles Other Than 
Passenger 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 existing speedometer 
to conform to the requirements of the standard.
    Standard No. 205 Glazing Materials: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
removal of noncompliant glazing or replacement of the glazing with 
U.S.-model glazing on vehicles that are not already so equipped.

date indicated above will be considered, and will be available for

that date. To the extent possible, comments filed after the closing 
date will also be considered. Notice of final action on the petition
