National Highway Traffic Safety Administration February 2, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Morgan Motor Company Limited; Denial of Application for a Temporary Exemption From Air Bag Provisions of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208
Document Number: E7-1735
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-02-02
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice denies the petition of Morgan Motor Company, Limited (Morgan) for a temporary exemption from the air bag requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, Occupant Crash Protection, for the Morgan ``traditional roadster'' from September 2006 through September 2009. The basis of the application is that compliance would cause substantial economic hardship to a manufacturer that states it has tried in good faith to comply with the standard. NHTSA notes that Morgan has known since 1997 that it could not procure more air bags, but provided no evidence of attempts to secure an alternate source of air bags. In accordance with the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 30113(b)(2), we published a Federal Register document on August 15, 2006 announcing receipt of Morgan's application.
