Pipeline Safety: Information Collection Activities, 13004-13005 [2018-05981]

Download as PDF 13004 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 58 / Monday, March 26, 2018 / Notices construction in the sidewall and tread is the primary safety concern of these industries. In this case, because of the sidewall marking indicate that some steel plies exist in the tire sidewall, this potential safety concern does not exist. NHTSA’S Decision: In consideration of the foregoing, NHTSA finds that SRI has met its burden of persuasion that the subject FMVSS No. 119 noncompliance in the affected tires is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Accordingly, SRI’s petition is hereby granted and SRI is consequently exempted from the obligation of providing notification of, and a free remedy for, that noncompliance under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, this decision only applies to the subject tires that SRI no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, the granting of this petition does not relieve equipment distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant tires under their control after SRI notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.
