ACTION: Ruling on petition for inconsequential noncompliance. AGENCY: Baby Jogger, LLC (Baby Jogger), has determined that certain Baby Jogger rear-facing infant seats and bases do not fully comply with paragraphs S5.5, S5.6, S5.8, and S8.1 of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 213, Child Restraint Systems. Baby Jogger filed an associated report dated June 4, 2015, pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports. Baby Jogger then petitioned NHTSA under 49 CFR part 556 requesting a decision that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety.

Overview: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) (see implementing rule at 49 CFR part 556), Baby Jogger submitted a petition for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Notice of receipt of the petition was published, with a 30-day public comment period, on September 8, 2015 in the Federal Register (80 FR 53914). No comments were received.

Then follow the online search instructions to locate docket number ‘‘NHTSA–2015– 0074.’’ II. Child Restraints Involved: Affected are approximately 15,103 of the following Baby Jogger rear-facing infant seats and bases manufactured between November 3, 2014 and April 30, 2015: • City GO Infant Car Seat/Model No. BJ64510 • City GO Infant Car Seat/Model No. BJ64529 • City GO Base for Infant Car Seat/ Model No. BJ80400 • City GO Base for Infant Car Seat/ Model No. BJ61500 • City Mini Infant Cars Seat/Stroller Travel System/Model No.BJ72510 • Vue Lite Infant Car Seat/Stroller Travel System/Model No. BJ70411 • Vue Lite Infant Car Seat/Stroller Travel System/Model No. BJ70424 • Vue Lite Infant Car Seat/Stroller Travel System/Model No. BJ70431 III. Noncompliances: Baby Jogger explains that the affected child restraints do not fully comply with numerous paragraphs of FMVSS No. 213 for the following reasons: Paragraph S5.5.2—The required information in English is no smaller than 10 point type, but the Spanish information is smaller at about 7 point type. This only applies to models BJ64510 and BJ64529. Paragraph S5.5.2(d)—The ‘‘manufactured in address’’ on the label is in about 8 font which is smaller than the required 10 point type. Paragraph S5.5.2(m)—The required ’’Child restraints could be recalled for safety reasons. . .’’ text is on a black background with white text instead of black text on a white background. Paragraph S5.5.2(g)(1)—The label has the ‘‘Follow all instructions. . .’’ ahead of the ‘‘Secure this child restraint’’ statement, instead of the reverse order as required. This noncompliance only affects models BJ64510 and BJ64529. Paragraph S5.5.2(n)—The label has ‘‘This child restraint is certified for use PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in motor vehicles and aircraft.’’ Other than the first word, no other words are capitalized. Paragraph S5.5.2.(k)(3)(ii)—The message area measures 23.4 square cm on models BJ70411, BJ70424 and BJ70431 which is less than the minimum required message area of 30 square cm. Paragraph S5.5.2.(k)(3)(iii)—On models BJ70411, BJ70424 and BJ70431 the red circle on the required pictogram is 29 mm in diameter which is less than the required 30 mm in diameter. Paragraph S5.6.1.7—The instruction manuals do not include reference to the required Web site in the section regarding child restraint recalls. Paragraph S5.6.3—The instruction manuals do not include the required statement ‘‘A snug strap should not allow any slack. . .’’ Paragraph S5.8.2(a)(1)—The electronic registration form does not have the required statement ‘‘FOR YOUR CHILD’S CONTINUED SAFETY. . .’’ Paragraph S5.8.1(b)(2)—Figure 9a requires minimum 10 percent screen tint on the lower half of the form. The form is missing the required tinting. Paragraph S8.1—No instructions for installing the system in an aircraft passenger seat were provided. IV. Summary of Baby Jogger’s Analyses: Baby Jogger organized its reasoning to substantiate inconsequentiality into the following five issue groupings that it believes are similar between the numerous noncompliances: a. Information Type Size/Capitalization/ Presentation Order b. Background Color c. On-Product Label Message Area and Pictogram Sizes d. Omitted Information e. Spanish Language Type Size Refer to Baby Jogger’s petition for their complete reasoning and associated illustrations. To view the petition and all supporting documents log onto the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) Web site at: http:// www.regulations.gov/. Then follow the online search instructions to locate docket number ‘‘NHTSA–2015–0074.’’ Baby Jogger additionally informed NHTSA that they have corrected all labeling noncompliances and that all future production of the subject infant car seat/stroller systems and stand-alone units will be in full compliance with FMVSS No. 213. In summation, Baby Jogger believes that the described noncompliance of the subject infant car seat/stroller systems and standalone units is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety, and that its E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1
