As an additional method of reliability and security, Maserati stated that a shaft lock module is also part of the SKIS. This unit is designed to work in conjunction with the RFHub module to control a locking bolt that engages any slot in the steering shaft to prevent shaft rotation whenever there is not a valid key present. The monitoring provisions for the shaft lock module are designed to resist unauthorized tampering. The module cannot be removed from the steering column while the lock bolt is in the locked position. The shaft lock module cannot be adjusted or repaired and if faulty or damaged, it must be replaced as an assembly. Maserati stated that based on MY 2010 theft data published by NHTSA, its vehicles which have had antitheft and immobilizer systems installed have experienced extremely low to zero theft rates. Maserati also stated that because it had previously been a small vehicle manufacturer that produced and sold a low volume of vehicle units, its vehicles had been exempted from the partsmarking requirements. However, Maserati informed the agency that its immobilizer antitheft device has been equipped on its vehicles as standard equipment since MY 2007 and believes that its advanced technology antitheft devices are and will continue to be more effective in deterring vehicle theft than the parts-marking requirements. Theft rate data reported in Federal Register notices published by the agency show that the theft rate for the Quattroporte vehicle line, using an average of three MYs’ data (2008–2010), is 0.6120, which is significantly lower than the median theft established by the agency. Maserati believes these low theft rates demonstrate the effectiveness of the immobilizer device. Based on the supporting evidence submitted by Maserati on its device, the agency believes that the antitheft device for the Quattroporte vehicle line is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the parts-marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR 541). The agency concludes that the device will provide the five types of performance listed in § 543.6(a)(3): promoting activation; attracting attention to the efforts of an unauthorized person to enter or move a vehicle by means other than a key; preventing defeat or circumvention of the device by unauthorized persons; preventing operation of the vehicle by unauthorized entrants; and ensuring the reliability and durability of the device. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:05 Apr 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 33106 and 49 CFR 543.7(b), the agency grants a petition for exemption from the partsmarking requirements of Part 541 either in whole or in part, if it determines that, based upon substantial evidence, the standard equipment antitheft device is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the parts-marking requirements of Part 541. The agency finds that Maserati has provided adequate reasons for its belief that the antitheft device for the Maserati Quattroporte vehicle line is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the parts-marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR Part 541). This conclusion is based on the information Maserati provided about its device. For the foregoing reasons, the agency hereby grants in full Maserati’s petition for exemption for the Maserati Quattroporte vehicle line from the partsmarking requirements of 49 CFR Part 541. The agency notes that 49 CFR Part 541, Appendix A–1, identifies those lines that are exempted from the Theft Prevention Standard for a given model year. 49 CFR Part 543.7(f) contains publication requirements incident to the disposition of all Part 543 petitions. Advanced listing, including the release of future product nameplates, the beginning model year for which the petition is granted and a general description of the antitheft device is necessary in order to notify law enforcement agencies of new vehicle lines exempted from the parts-marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard. If Maserati decides not to use the exemption for this line, it must formally notify the agency. If such a decision is made, the line must be fully marked according to the requirements under 49 CFR Parts 541.5 and 541.6 (marking of major component parts and replacement parts). NHTSA notes that if Maserati wishes in the future to modify the device on which this exemption is based, the company may have to submit a petition to modify the exemption. Part 543.7(d) states that a Part 543 exemption applies only to vehicles that belong to a line exempted under this part and equipped with the antitheft device on which the line’s exemption is based. Further, Part 543.9(c)(2) provides for the submission of petitions ‘‘to modify an exemption to permit the use of an antitheft device similar to but differing from the one specified in that exemption.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00156 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24305 The agency wishes to minimize the administrative burden that Part 543.9(c)(2) could place on exempted vehicle manufacturers and itself. The agency did not intend in drafting Part 543 to require the submission of a modification petition for every change to the components or design of an antitheft device. The significance of many such changes could be de minimis. Therefore, NHTSA suggests that if the manufacturer contemplates making any changes, the effects of which might be characterized as de minimis, it should consult the agency before preparing and submitting a petition to modify.
