Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B), a motor vehicle, including a 
trailer, that was not originally manufactured to conform to all 
applicable FMVSS, and has no substantially similar U.S.-certified 
counterpart, shall be refused admission into the United States unless 
NHTSA has decided that the motor vehicle has safety features that 
comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all 
applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence 
as NHTSA decides to be adequate.
    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. (WETL) of Houston, 
Texas (Registered Importer R-90-005) has petitioned NHTSA to decide 
whether nonconforming 1994 and 1997 Westfalia 14 Foot Double Axle Cargo 
Trailers are eligible for importation into the United States. WETL 
believes these vehicles are capable of being modified to meet all 
applicable FMVSS.

demonstrate that 1994 and 1997 Westfalia 14 Foot Double Axle Cargo 
Trailers are capable of being altered to comply with all standards to 
which they were not originally manufactured to conform.
    The petitioner contends that the nonconforming 1994 and 1997 
Westfalia 14 Foot Double Axle Cargo Trailers are capable of being 
readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated:
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: installation of conforming Turn Signals, Stop Lamps, Side 
Marker Lamps, Reflex Reflectors, and a License Plate Lamp in a manner 
consistent with requirements of the standard.
    Standard No. 119 New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles other than 
Passenger Cars: installation of tire and rim combinations meeting the 
vehicle's gross vehicle and gross axle weight ratings (GVWR and GAWR) 
and other requirements of the standard if the vehicle is not already so 
equipped.
    Standard No. 120 Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other 
than Passenger Cars: installation of a tire information placard 
conforming with the standard and inspection and replacement of any 
nonconforming rims with ones conforming to the standard.

date indicated above will be considered, and will be available for 
examination in the docket at the above addresses both before and after
