Notice of OFAC Sanctions Actions, 66278-66279 [2019-26138]

Download as PDF lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 66278 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 3, 2019 / Notices noncompliant loop fastener material, as installed in the vehicle, does not present a safety risk, and the chance of fire or flame propagation is essentially zero. 3. The loop fastener is a very small portion of the carpet assembly: The loop fastener material is only a very small part of the overall mass of the soft material comprising the carpet assembly (i.e., up to a maximum of 0.037% depending on the vehicle model), and is significantly less in relation to the entire vehicle interior surface area that could potentially be exposed to flame. Therefore, it would have an insignificant adverse effect on interior material burn rate and the potential for occupant injury due to interior fire. 4. There are no relevant field incidents: Toyota conducted a search of consumer complaints, field reports, dealer reports, Vehicle Owner Questionnaires (VOQs), and legal claims for the subject vehicles and found no reports relating to ignition of the loop fastener. As of July 10, 2019, Toyota is not aware of any fires, crashes, or injuries in connection with this component in the subject vehicles. 5. In similar situations, NHTSA has granted petitions for inconsequential noncompliance relating to the subject requirement of FMVSS No. 302: Toyota stated NHTSA has previously granted at least ten FMVSS No. 302 petitions for inconsequential noncompliance, one of which was for a vehicle’s console armrest, one of which was for large truck sleeper bedding, one of which was for seating material, and six of which were for issues related to child restraints. A citation to each is provided below: • Paccar (57 FR 45868, October 5, 1992) (Noncompliant tape edging surrounding otherwise compliant bedding materials in a large truck sleeper bed was deemed by the agency to be inconsequential). • Fisher-Price (60 FR 41152, August 11, 1995) (Noncompliant fabric used in CRS shoulder straps was deemed to be inconsequential by the agency). • Century (60 FR 41148, August 11, 1995) (Noncompliant seat covers were determined unlikely to pose a flammability risk when securely sewn to the seat). • Cosco (60 FR 41150, August 11, 1995) (Noncompliant fabric used in CRS shoulder straps was deemed to be inconsequential). • Kolcraft (63 FR 24585, May 4, 1998) (One or more of the fitting, face, or backing materials of CRS seat covers were noncompliant). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:27 Dec 02, 2019 Jkt 250001 • Cosco (63 FR 30809, June 5, 1998) (Noncomplying fiberfill incorporated into a pillow located in a child restraint was inconsequential to safety due to the unlikelihood of exposure to an ignition source). • Ford (63 FR 40780, July 30, 1998) (A noncompliant center console armrest ‘‘plus pad’’ was determined by the Agency to be inconsequential to safety in that, because of its location under an exterior cover). • Graco (77 FR 14055, March 8, 2012) (Certain noncompliant warning labels attached to the outside of detachable accessory pillows were deemed inconsequential by the Agency due to the relatively small size of the label). • Toyota (80 FR 4035, January 26, 2015) (Certain noncompliant front and rear seat back and seat cushion seat heaters were determined by the Agency to be inconsequential to safety in that the seat heaters were unlikely to pose a flammability risk). • Toyota (83 FR 16433, April 16, 2018) (Certain noncompliant needle punch felt material used in the front and rear seat covers and rear center armrest assemblies were determined by the Agency to be inconsequential to safety). In support of Toyota’s petition, Toyota submitted the following supplemental information in support of the petition: Toyota stated that on July 31, 2019, Transport Canada (TC) notified Toyota Canada, Inc. (TCI) that it had evaluated information supplied by TCI in connection with a Notice of Noncompliance submitted to TC involving the same facts that gave rise to the part 573 Report that is subject of this inconsequentiality petition. Transport Canada concluded that ‘‘there is no real or implied degradation to motor vehicle safety’’ presented by the noncompliance with FMVSS No. 302, and indicated that no further notification or remedy action is required.’’ Toyota concludes that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety and that its petition to be exempted from providing notification of the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and a remedy for the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120, should be granted. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject vehicles that Toyota no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after Toyota notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.
