SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 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 sale in the United States, certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same MY as the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to conform to all applicable FMVSS. 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 of each petition that it receives in the Federal Register, 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. G&K Automotive Conversion, Inc., (Registered Importer R–90–007), of Santa Ana, California has petitioned NHTSA to decide whether nonconforming 2017–2019 Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 Pullman PCs are eligible for importation into the United States. The vehicles which G&K Automotive Conversion, Inc. believes VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:00 Dec 27, 2019 Jkt 250001 are substantially similar are MY 2017– 2019 Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 PCs sold in the United States and certified by their manufacturer as conforming to all applicable FMVSS. The S600 Pullman is a limousine based on the S600 sedan and manufactured by BRABUS GmbH. The petitioner claims that it compared non-U.S. certified MY 2017–2019 Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 Pullman PCs to their U.S. certified counterparts, and found the vehicles to be substantially similar with respect to compliance with most FMVSS. G&K Automotive Conversion, Inc. submitted information with its petition intended to demonstrate that non-U.S. certified MY 2017–2019 Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 Pullman PCs, as originally manufactured, conform to many applicable FMVSS in the same manner as their U.S.-certified counterparts, or are capable of being readily altered to conform to those standards. Specifically, the petitioner claims that the non-U.S. certified MY 2017–2019 Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 Pullman PCs, as originally manufactured, conform to: FMVSS Nos. 102, Transmission Shift Position Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect, 103, Windshield Defrosting and Defogging Systems, 104, Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems, 106, Brake Hoses, 113, Hood Latch System, 114, Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention, 116, Motor Vehicle Brake Fluids, 118, Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel System, 124, Accelerator Control Systems, 126, Electronic Stability Control Systems, 135, Light Vehicle Brake Systems, 138, Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires, 201, Occupant Protection in Interior Impact, 202, Head Restraints; Applicable at the Manufacturers Option until September 1, 2009, 204, Steering Control Rearward Displacement, 205, Glazing Materials, 206, Door Locks and Door Retention Components, 207, Seating Systems, 208, Occupant Crash Protection, 209, Seat Belt Assemblies, 210, Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages, 212, Windshield Mounting, 214, Side Impact Protection, 216, Roof Crush Resistance; Applicable unless a Vehicle is Certified to § 571.216a, 219, Windshield Zone Intrusion, 225, Child Restraint Anchorage Systems, and 302, Flammability of Interior Materials. The petitioner also contends that the subject non-U.S. certified vehicles are capable of being readily altered to meet the following FMVSS, in the manner indicated: PO 00000 Frm 00245 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FMVSS No. 101, Controls and Displays: Programming of the speedometer for units of miles per hour.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Notice of Calendar Year 2020 Minimum Annual Percentage Rate for Random 
Drug Testing

    Operators of natural gas, hazardous liquid, and carbon dioxide 
pipelines and operators of liquefied natural gas and underground 
natural gas storage facilities must randomly select and test a 
percentage of all covered employees for prohibited drug use in 
accordance with 49 CFR part 199. Pursuant to Sec.  199.105(c)(1), the 
PHMSA minimum annual random drug testing rate for all covered employees 
is 50 percent. The Administrator can adjust this random drug testing 
rate based on the reported positive rate in the pipeline industry's 
random drug tests, which is submitted in operators' annual Management 
Information System (MIS) reports as required by Sec.  199.119(a). In 
accordance with Sec.  199.105(c)(3), if the reported positive drug test 
rate is below 1 percent for 2 consecutive years, the Administrator can 
reduce the random drug testing rate to 25 percent of all covered 
employees. In calendar year 2018, the random drug test positive rate 
for the entire pipeline industry was reported at greater than 1 
percent; therefore, the minimum annual random drug testing rate for 
calendar year 2020 is maintained at 50 percent of all covered 
employees.

Reminder for Operators To Report Contractor MIS Data

    On January 19, 2010, (75 FR 2926) PHMSA published an advisory 
bulletin notifying operators of the appropriate methodology for the 
annual collection of contractor MIS drug and alcohol testing data to 
avoid duplicative reporting when a contractor works for multiple 
operators. If an operator is required to submit a MIS report in 
accordance with part 199, that report is not complete until PHMSA 
receives MIS data for each tested contractor that performed covered 
functions as defined in Sec.  199.3. As explained in the 2010 Advisory 
Bulletin, operators must submit operator and contractor employee 
testing data in separate MIS reports to avoid duplicative reporting and 
inaccurate data that could affect the positive rate for the entire 
industry.

Reminder of Method for Operators To Obtain User Name and Password for 
Electronic Reporting

    By early January 2020, the user name and password required for an 
operator to access DAMIS and enter calendar year 2019 data will be 
available to all operator staff with access to the PHMSA Portal. 
Pipeline operators have been submitting reports required by 49 CFR 
parts 191 and 195 through the PHMSA Portal (https://portal.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline) since 2011. PHMSA determined that 
distributing information via the Portal would be more effective than 
the previous mailing process.
    When the DAMIS user name and password are available in the PHMSA 
Portal, all registered users will receive an email to that effect. If 
operator staff responsible for submitting MIS reports do not receive 
the DAMIS information, they should coordinate with other registered 
PHMSA Portal users within their company to obtain the DAMIS user name 
and password. Registered PHMSA Portal users for an operator typically 
include operator staff or consultants who submit annual and incident 
reports through PHMSA F 7000- and 7100-series forms. Operators that 
have not previously registered staff in the PHMSA Portal for the 
reporting purposes of parts 191 and 195 can register users by following 
the instructions at:  https://portal.phmsa.dot.gov/PHMSAPortal2/staticContentRedesign/howto/PortalAccountCreation.pdf.
    Pursuant to Sec. Sec.  199.119(a) and 199.229(a), operators with 
more than 50 covered employees, including both operator and contractor 
staff, are required to submit annual MIS reports. Operators with 50 or 
fewer total covered employees are required to submit MIS reports only 
upon written request from PHMSA. If an operator with 50 or fewer total 
covered employees has submitted an MIS report in or after calendar year 
2017, the PHMSA Portal message may state that no MIS report is required 
for calendar year 2019. If an operator with 50 or fewer covered 
employees has grown to more than 50 covered employees during calendar 
year 2019, the PHMSA Portal message will include instructions for how 
to obtain a DAMIS user name and password for the 2019 calendar year 
reporting period.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on December 19, 2019, under authority 
delegated in 49 CFR 1.97.
