Hazardous Materials: Public Meeting Notice for the 2020 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG2020), 19999 [2019-09299]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices U.S.C. 30112(a); 30115(a). A manufacturer cannot certify or manufacture for sale a vehicle it knows to be noncompliant. Id. The fact that new vehicle production has been corrected simply informs us that the noncompliance is limited to the affected vehicles described in the petitions. As we noted earlier, the fact that only a small number of vehicles are affected by a noncompliance will not justify our granting an inconsequentiality petition. IX. NHTSA’s Decision In consideration of the foregoing, NHTSA finds that BMW and Jaguar have not met their burden of persuading the agency that the subject noncompliances with FMVSS Nos. 208 and 209 are inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Accordingly, NHTSA hereby denies the petitions submitted by BMW and Jaguar. BMW and Jaguar are therefore obligated to provide notification of, and a free remedy for, that noncompliance in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 30118 through 30120. NHTSA has reviewed Autoliv’s petition and based on an email dated February 28, 2017, Autoliv states that while they do sell a relatively small quantity of replacement parts to Autoliv operations in Europe, they do not sell directly to dealerships or the aftermarket. Autoliv says that all of their sales are direct to the OEM’s who in turn, manage the distribution of those parts to their dealer networks. Thus, Autoliv has no standing to file for an exemption in accordance with 49 CFR 556, in this case, and therefore, Autoliv’s petition is hereby moot. Authority: 49 U.S.C. 30118, 30120: delegations of authority at 49 CFR 1.95 and 501.8. Jeffrey Mark Giuseppe, Associate Administrator for Enforcement.

The meeting will take place on June 17, 2019, in Washington, DC. PHMSA developed the United States version of the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) for use by emergency services personnel to provide guidance for initial response to hazardous materials transportation incidents. Since 1980, it has been PHMSA’s goal that all public emergency response personnel (e.g., fire-fighting, police, and rescue squads) have free and immediate access to the ERG. To date, PHMSA has distributed more than 14.5 million copies of the ERG to emergency service agencies and developed free online resources and downloadable mobile applications to make the ERG more accessible. Since 1996, PHMSA, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communication and Transport of Mexico have collaborated in development of the ERG, with interested parties from government and industry providing additional assistance, including Argentina’s Chemical Information Center for Emergencies (CIQUIME). ERG2020 will be published in English, French, and Spanish and will increase public safety by providing consistent emergency response procedures for hazardous materials transportation incidents throughout North America. During the meeting, PHMSA will respond to stakeholder requests for a public discussion of the methodology used to determine the appropriate response protective distances for poisonous vapors resulting from spills involving dangerous goods considered toxic by inhalation in the ERG2016 ‘‘Green Pages.’’ To pursue our objective of continually improving the ERG, PHMSA will solicit comments related to new methodologies and considerations for future editions of the ERG.
