Pipeline Safety: Information Collection Activities, 60242-60243 [2015-25224]

Download as PDF 60242 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 192 / Monday, October 5, 2015 / Notices language in Chapter 12 noting that transit agencies must monitor their service in order to confirm internally, and in some cases to FTA during oversight activity, that service is being delivered consistent with ADA requirements. Recipients must similarly ensure compliance of their subrecipients. However, we also state clearly that FTA does not dictate the specifics of an agency’s monitoring efforts and that approaches for monitoring will vary based on the characteristics of the service and local considerations. This is our main point when it comes to monitoring. We therefore shortened the section and removed portions we determined were overly broad since we did not receive feedback to tailor the discussion to local practices. We retained the table that cross-references monitoring discussions found in other chapters to assist the reader in locating the information. Therese W. McMillan, Acting Administrator.

ACTION: Grant of petition for exemption. AGENCY: This document grants in full the Ford Motor Company’s (Ford) petition for an exemption of the MKC vehicle line in accordance with 49 CFR part 543, Exemption from Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard. This petition is granted because the agency has determined that the antitheft device to be placed on the line as standard equipment is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the partsmarking requirements of the 49 CFR part 541, Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard (Theft Prevention Standard). Ford also requested confidential treatment for specific information in its petition that the agency will address by separate letter. DATES: The exemption granted by this notice is effective beginning with the 2017 model year (MY). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, W43–443, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck’s phone number is (202) 366–4139. Her fax number is (202) 493–2990. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a petition dated June 25, 2015, Ford requested an exemption from the partsSUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00130 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60243 marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard for the Lincoln MKC vehicle line beginning with MY 2017. The petition requested exemption from parts-marking pursuant to 49 CFR part 543, Exemption from Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, based on the installation of an antitheft device as standard equipment for the entire vehicle line. Under 49 CFR part 543.5(a), a manufacturer may petition NHTSA to grant an exemption for one vehicle line per model year. In its petition, Ford provided a detailed description and diagram of the identity, design, and location of the components of the antitheft device for its Lincoln MKC vehicle line. Ford stated that the Lincoln MKC will be installed with its Intelligent Access with Push Button Start (IAwPB) system as standard equipment on the entire vehicle line. The IAwPB system is a passive, electronic engine immobilizer device that uses encrypted transponder technology. Key components of the IAwPB device will include an Intelligent Access electronic PushButton Start key fob, keyless ignition system, body control module (BCM), powertrain control module (PCM) and a passive immobilizer. Ford further stated that its Lincoln MKC vehicle line will be offered with a perimeter alarm system as standard equipment. The perimeter alarm system will activate a visible and audible alarm whenever unauthorized access is attempted. Ford stated that the device’s integration of the transponder into the normal operation of the ignition key assures activation of the system. Ford also stated that the MKC vehicle line’s electronic key will be programmed into the vehicle during system initialization at the manufacturing plant. Ford further stated that the vehicle engine can only be started when the key is present in the vehicle and the ‘‘StartStop’’ button inside the vehicle is pressed. Ford stated that when the ‘‘StartStop’’ button is pressed, the transceiver module will read a key code and transmit an encrypted message to the control module to determine key validity and engine start by sending a separate encrypted message to the BCM and the PCM. The powertrain will function only if the key code matches the unique identification key code previously programmed into the BCM. If the codes do not match, the powertrain engine will be inoperable. Ford also expressed that any attempt to short the ‘‘StartStop’’ button will have no effect on a thief’s ability to start the vehicle without the correct code being transmitted to the electronic control modules.
