FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Arija Flowers, Trial Attorney, Office of the Chief Counsel, NCC–111, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: 202– 366–8714). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In order to ensure that all vehicles in the United States are equipped with safe air bags as quickly as possible and to reduce the risk of serious injury or death due to an inflator rupture, NHTSA is considering exercising its authority under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, as amended and recodified (the ‘‘Safety Act’’), 49 U.S.C. 30101, et seq., to organize and prioritize the remedy programs of BMW of North America, LLC (‘‘BMW’’), Chrysler Group, LLC (‘‘Chrysler’’), Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (‘‘DTNA’’), Ford Motor Company (‘‘Ford’’), General Motors, LLC (‘‘GM’’), American Honda Motor Company (‘‘Honda’’), Mazda North American Operations (‘‘Mazda’’), Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (‘‘Mitsubishi’’), Nissan North America, Inc. (‘‘Nissan’’), Subaru of America, Inc. (‘‘Subaru’’), and Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing (‘‘Toyota’’) (collectively, the ‘‘Manufacturers’’), and TK Holdings, Inc. (‘‘Takata’’) to address Takata frontal air bag inflators. Specifically, NHTSA is issuing this notice pursuant to its authority under the Safety Act to ‘‘accelerate’’ a remedy program, 49 U.S.C. 30120(c)(3) and 49 CFR 573.14, as delegated by the Secretary of Transportation, 49 CFR 1.95, 501.2(a)(1), to inspect and investigate, 49 U.S.C. 30166(b)(1), and to ensure that defective vehicles and equipment are recalled, 49 U.S.C. 30118–30119. On May 18, 2015, Takata filed four Defect Information Reports (‘‘DIR’s’’) pursuant to 49 CFR 573.6. In those DIR’s, Takata determined that a defect exists in certain models of frontal air bag inflators (PSDI, PSDI–4, PSDI–4K, SPI, PSPI and PSPI–L). The Safety Act requires manufacturers to remedy safety-related defects in motor vehicles. 49 U.S.C. 30120(a). If the Secretary of Transportation determines that a manufacturer’s remedy program is not likely to be capable of completion within a reasonable time, the Secretary may require the manufacturer to ‘‘accelerate’’ the remedy program if the Secretary finds that there is a risk of serious injury or death if the remedy program is not accelerated and that acceleration of the remedy program can be reasonably VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:19 May 21, 2015 Jkt 235001 achieved by expanding the sources of replacement parts, expanding the number of authorized repair facilities, or both. Id. § 30120(c)(3). The Secretary has delegated his authorities under the Safety Act to the NHTSA Administrator, 49 CFR 1.95(a), 501.2(a)(1). Each of the Manufacturers has elected a remedy program of repair of the affected vehicles. See 49 U.S.C. 30120(a)(1)(A). These remedy programs are individual to each of the Manufacturers, creating a patch-work solution that NHTSA believes may not adequately address the safety risks presented by the defective Takata inflators within a reasonable time. Regardless of root cause, these recalls involve the same safety risk: The risk of the air bag inflator rupturing when the air bag is inflated, which may result in serious injury or death to vehicle occupants without any prior warning. The number of impacted vehicles and manufacturers in combination with the supply issues related to these air bag recalls adds a previously unprecedented level of complexity to this recall and remedy process. Given the number of manufacturers (11) and the technical complexity of the issues involved, NHTSA intends to open a Section 30120(c)(3) proceeding, and has therefore issued this Notice of Intent to inform the public. The goal of a Section 30120(c)(3) proceeding is for the agency to consider whether (and if so, how) to organize and prioritize the recall and remedy programs of the Manufacturers, in order to aid the Manufacturers in accomplishing their significant task of replacing all defective Takata air bag inflators. As part of a Section 30120(c)(3) proceeding, NHTSA plans to consider the views of commenters regarding NHTSA’s exercising its authority with respect to recall and remedy programs involving certain defective Takata frontal air bag inflators, including, but not limited whether it should, and on what terms, issue an order to ‘‘accelerate’’ all applicable recall remedy programs, which could include, but not be limited to, provisions regarding sourcing, production, allocation, delivery, installation, and adequacy of the remedy. Further, as part of a Section 30120(c)(3) proceeding, NHTSA would specifically request comments on how the Manufacturers would comply with an organization and prioritization of remedy directive, the possible terms of any such order and, in particular, how NHTSA should order the sourcing of the replacement parts for Manufacturers, whether NHTSA should issue the PO 00000 Frm 00191 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 remedy order to some but not all Manufacturers, whether NHTSA should order the Manufacturers to prioritize certain vehicles or certain regions in its allocation of replacement parts and how, and whether NHTSA should order a re-replacement schedule for replacement frontal inflators if Takata cannot provide assurances for the ongoing safety of the inflators. Upon NHTSA’s opening of a Section 30120(c)(3) proceeding, additional information, including how to comment, will be published in a supplemental Federal Register Notice.
