ACTION: Receipt of Petition. AGENCY: OSRAM SYLVANIA Products, Inc.1 (OSRAM) has determined that certain Type HB2 replaceable light sources, manufactured between September 25, 2011, and October 8, 2011, do not fully comply with paragraph S7.7 of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, Lamp, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment. OSRAM has filed an appropriate report dated November 23, 2011 2, pursuant to 49 SUMMARY: 1 OSRAM SYLVANIA Products Inc., is a manufacturer of motor vehicle replacement equipment and is registered under the laws of the state of Delaware. 2 OSRAM submitted an amended version of the report on January 6, 2012. PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) (see implementing rule at 49 CFR part 556), OSRAM submitted a petition for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. This notice of receipt of OSRAM’s petition is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition. Equipment involved: Affected are approximately 40,544 Type HB2 replaceable light sources that were manufactured by OSRAM Sylvania Products, Inc., between September 25, 2011, and October 8, 2011. 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 the subject Type HB2 replaceable light sources that OSRAM no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. Noncompliance: OSRAM explains that the noncompliance is due to an error in the production facility. Certain Type HB2 replaceable light sources were produced with an incorrect upper beam filament wire which results in an upper beam luminous flux outside (below) the specifications as required in paragraph S7.7 of FMVSS No. 108. Rule text: Paragraph S7.7 of FMVSS No. 108 requires in pertinent part: S7.7 Each replaceable light source shall be designed to conform to the dimensions and electrical specifications furnished with respect to it pursuant to part 564 of this chapter, and shall conform to the following requirements:* * * Summary of OSRAM’s Analysis and Arguments: OSRAM stated its belief that although the subject Type HB2 replaceable light source may not meet the required luminous flux specifications the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. OSRAM came to this conclusion based on the following results of testing that it conducted on a large sample of lamps using the subject noncompliant Type HB2 replaceable light sources: E:\FR\FM\09APN1.SGM 09APN1
