Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 25358 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 85 / Monday, May 4, 2015 / Notices FMVSS No. 209, Seat belt assemblies; FNA commented that as pointed out by JK in their petition, some European market vehicles are equipped with fourpoint seat belt assemblies that do not comply with this standard. FNA contends that the belts could not simply be replaced by a registered importer, due to the absence of an anchorage on the B-pillar. JK responded that all vehicles processed under this petition would need to be inspected for compliance and that all parts of the system are available. NHTSA has decided that each conformity package must include photographic evidence that conforming safety belts have been installed in the vehicle. Safety belt anchorages are addressed in the following FMVSS No. 210 discussion. FMVSS No. 210, Seat belt assembly anchorages; In its petition JK claims that the subject non-U.S. certified vehicles conform to FMVSS No. 210 as originally manufactured. FNA commented that European-market vehicles that were equipped with optional four point harnesses lack b-pillar anchorages which are necessary for the installation of compliant three point harnesses. FNA expresses concern about the ability of an RI to install this anchorage and ensure that it meets the performance requirements of the standard without Ferrari’s templates and tools, which are only used during production. JK responded that any vehicle found to be equipped with the optional belts and lacking the mentioned anchorage would have to be modified to meet this standard. JK further states that they will draw a template from the U.S. donor vehicle and that as a result all parts and engineering of the anchorage would then be identical to the Ferrari mounting point. JK asserts that less than one percent of production is equipped with the optional belts. NHTSA has decided that conformity packages for vehicles that require modification must include a detailed description of the alterations made to achieve conformity with the standard. The description must include sufficient information to validate how the alterations allowed the vehicle to meet the requirements of the standard. This information must include photographic evidence that the modification was carried out, as well as testing and/or engineering analysis reports documenting how the RI has verified that the alterations will allow the vehicle to meet all applicable requirements of the standard. FMVSS No. 301 Fuel system integrity; FNA stated that the modifications to the fuel system that JK identified in its VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:40 May 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 petition, while necessary to comply with emissions requirements, have no bearing on compliance with FMVSS No. 301. JK responded that the rollover valves incorporated in the U.S. market system are an integral part of the fuel system integrity of the vehicle and necessary for compliance. NHTSA has decided that the fuel system modifications are necessary to bring vehicles into compliance with the standard. Additionally, NHTSA has decided that each conformity package must include a detailed description of all modifications made to achieve conformity with the standard. This description must include part numbers for each part replaced and be supported with photographic evidence of the modifications made to achieve conformity. FMVSS No. 401 Interior trunk release; FNA expressed agreement that the modifications noted in the petition are necessary to conform the vehicle. The company noted, however, that the reprogramming could only be completed with proprietary hardware and software which is not available to RI’s and can only be obtained from Ferrari and/or FNA. JK responded that it has the necessary programs from its U.S. model vehicle. NHTSA has decided that each conformity package must include a description of how the programming changes were completed and how compliance was verified. Additionally, photographs, printouts, and/or screenshots, as practicable, must be submitted as proof that the reprogramming was carried out. 49 CFR part 581, Bumper Standard; FNA commented that in addition to the modifications noted by JK in its petition, additional bumper reinforcements would have to be installed in both the front and the rear of the vehicle. JK responded that no comment was necessary. NHTSA has decided that each conformity package must include a detailed description of all modifications made to achieve conformity with the standard, including necessary modifications to the bumper reinforcements. This description must include part numbers for each part replaced and be supported with photographic evidence of the modifications made to achieve conformity. In addition to the information specified above, each conformity package must include evidence showing how the RI verified that the changes it made in loading or reprograming PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 vehicle software to achieve conformity with each separate FMVSS, did not also cause the vehicle to fall out of compliance with any other applicable FMVSS. Decision Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA hereby decides that model year 2010 European model Ferrari California passenger cars that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS, are substantially similar to model year 2010 Ferrari California passenger cars manufactured for importation into and/ or sale in the United States, and certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and are capable of being readily altered to conform to all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Vehicle Eligibility Number for Subject Vehicles The importer of a vehicle admissible under any final decision must indicate on the form HS–7 accompanying entry the appropriate vehicle eligibility number indicating that the vehicle is eligible for entry. VSP–570 is the vehicle eligibility number assigned to vehicles admissible under this notice of final decision. Authority: 49 U.S.C. 30118, 30120: delegations of authority at 49 CFR 1.95 and 501.8.

instead sold the Line to UP.\3\ UP has certified that: (1) No local 
traffic has moved over the Line for at least two years; (2) no overhead 
traffic has moved over the Line for at least two years; (3) no formal 
complaint filed by a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or
