In order to facilitate notification to consumers of defective or nonconforming tires, our tire recordkeeping regulation sets forth, among other things, the methods by which independent tire dealers and distributors record, on standard registration forms, their names and addresses and the identification number of the tires sold to consumers, and provide these forms to the consumers for reporting their names to the tire manufacturers. One of the figures related to tire registration forms had been inadvertently deleted through an administrative error. This document corrects this inadvertent removal.
