National Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council Notice of Public Meeting, 27956-27957 [2021-10811]

Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 27956 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 98 / Monday, May 24, 2021 / Notices more limited operating conditions than mirrors, environmental debris on camera lens degrades image quality, higher cost, a higher likelihood of a need for regular maintenance, and more difficult maintenance. Additional concerns noted by commenters about replacing traditional mirrors with camera-based rear visibility systems include: 1. Camera-based rear visibility systems’ displays will make driving unsafe, as compared to traditional mirrors. 2. Drivers will not be able to easily acclimate to using the visual displays of camera-based rear visibility systems and different display locations (if applicable). 3. Camera-based rear visibility systems and new technology will further remove the human from the driving task. 4. Concerns about camera-based rear visibility systems’ ability to function reliably and that cameras requiring power can fail unexpectedly and cause a lack of awareness of the drivers’ surroundings, while traditional mirrors cannot. 5. Concerns camera-based rear visibility systems would be more difficult for law enforcement to determine if they are working correctly, as compared to traditional mirrors for which damage can be easily determined. In summary, the proposed research is intended to gather information to address the question of whether camerabased rear visibility system use is as safe as that of traditional mirrors through examination of drivers’ eye glance behavior and driving performance. However, issues such as reliability and law enforcement impacts are outside of the scope of this initial work. NHTSA appreciates the feedback and many relevant suggestions offered regarding additional experimental conditions to consider. NHTSA will consider the provided suggestions as input for follow-on research programs. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspects of this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:32 May 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Overview: GM has determined that certain MY 2017–2020 Cadillac XT5, MY 2020 Cadillac XT6, and MY 2017– PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27957 2019 GMC Acadia motor vehicles do not fully comply with the requirements of paragraphs S4.2 and S4.3(a) of FMVSS No. 302, Flammability of Interior Materials (49 CFR 571.302). GM filed a noncompliance report dated May 29, 2020, pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports. GM subsequently petitioned NHTSA on June 19, 2020, for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) and 49 CFR part 556, Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance. This notice of receipt of GM’s petition is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any Agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition. II. Vehicles Involved: Approximately 166,938 MY 2017–2020 Cadillac XT5, MY 2020 Cadillac XT6, and MY 2017– 2019 GMC Acadia motor vehicles manufactured between October 29, 2015, and March 20, 2020, are potentially involved. III. Noncompliance: GM explains that the noncompliance is that subject vehicles are equipped with ventilated front seats that do not meet the flammability requirements set forth in paragraphs S4.2 and S4.3(a) of FMVSS No. 302. Specifically, when the four composite layers of the seat-vent mat assembly are tested separately, one composite layer did not meet the burn rate requirement because it had burn rates ranging between 186 mm/min to 189 mm/min, therefore, it exceeded the maximum burn rate of 102 mm/min. IV. Rule Requirements: Paragraphs S4.2 and S4.3(a) of FMVSS No. 302 includes the requirements relevant to this petition. Any material that does not adhere to other materials at every point of contact must meet the 102 mm per minute burn rate requirement when tested separately. Any portion of a single or composite material which is within 13 mm of the occupant compartment air space shall meet the requirements. V. Summary of GM’s Petition: The following views and arguments presented in this section, ‘‘V. Summary of GM’s Petition,’’ are the views and arguments provided by GM. They have not been evaluated by the Agency and do not reflect the views of the Agency. GM described the subject noncompliance and contended that the noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
