Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 31676 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 97 / Thursday, May 19, 2016 / Notices The FAA has formally received the noise compatibility program for Bob Hope Airport, effective on April 6, 2016. The airport operator has requested that the FAA review this material and that the noise mitigation measures, to be implemented jointly by the airport and surrounding communities, be approved as a noise compatibility program under section 47504 of the Act. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to 14 CFR part 150 requirements for the submittal of noise compatibility programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be completed on or before November 7, 2016. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions of 14 CFR part 150, section 150.33. The primary considerations in the evaluation process are whether the proposed measures may reduce the level of aviation safety or create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, and whether they are reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing noncompatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. All comments relating to these factors, other than those properly addressed to local land use authorities, will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable. Copies of the noise exposure maps and the proposed noise compatibility program are available for examination at the following locations: Federal Aviation Administration, Western-Pacific Region Office, Airports Division, Room 3012, 15000 Aviation Boulevard, Hawthorne, California 90261. Federal Aviation Administration, Los Angeles Airports District Office, 15000 Aviation Boulevard, Room 3000, Hawthorne, California 90261. Bob Hope Airport, Attention: Mr. Mark Hardyment, 2627 Hollywood Way, Burbank, California 91505. Questions may be directed to the individual named above under the heading, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Issued in Hawthorne, California, on May 11, 2016. Mark A.

importation into the United States because they are substantially 
similar to vehicles originally manufactured for sale in the United 
States and certified by their manufacturers as complying with the

conform to the standards or because they have safety features that 
comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all

ADDRESSES: For further information contact Mr. George Stevens, Office

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not 
originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be 
refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that 
the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
originally manufactured for importation into and/or sale in the United 
States, certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same model year as 
the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being 
readily altered to conform to all applicable FMVSS.
    Where there is no substantially similar U.S.-certified motor 
vehicle, 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B) permits a nonconforming motor vehicle 
to be admitted into the United States if its safety features 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.
    NHTSA received petitions from registered importers to decide 
whether the vehicles listed in Annex A to this notice are eligible for 
importation into the United States. To afford an opportunity for public 
comment, NHTSA published notice of these petitions as specified in 
Annex A. The reader is referred to those notices for a thorough 
description of the petitions.
    Comments: No substantive comments were received in response to the 
petitions identified in Appendix A.
    NHTSA Decision: Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA 
hereby decides that each motor vehicle listed in Annex A to this 
notice, which was not originally manufactured to comply with all 
applicable FMVSS, is either substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
manufactured for importation into and/or sale in the United States, and 
certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, as specified in Annex A, and is 
capable of being readily altered to conform to all applicable FMVSS or 
has safety features that comply with, or are capable of being altered 
to comply with, 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. Vehicle eligibility 
numbers assigned to vehicles admissible under this decision are 
specified in Annex A.

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), (a)(1)(B) and (b)(1); 49 
CFR 593.7; delegations of authority at 49 CFR 1.95 and 501.8.
