Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Electronic Stability Control Systems; Correction
Document Number: E7-11965
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-22
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In April 2007, the agency published a final rule establishing a new Federal motor vehicle safety standard on electronic stability control (ESC) systems for light vehicles. As part of that rulemaking, the final rule notice stated that NHTSA had decided to defer the standard's requirements related to the ESC telltales and controls until the end of the phase-in period (i.e., until September 1, 2011). Accordingly, most of the paragraphs containing ESC telltale and control requirements were prefaced with the phrase ``as of September 1, 2011.'' However, that phrase was inadvertently omitted from two of the paragraphs setting forth ESC telltale and control requirements. These amendments correct this administrative error by adding the phrase ``as of September 1, 2011'' to those paragraphs.

Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-11
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule contains administrative adjustments to part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports; part 577, Defect and Noncompliance Notification; and part 579, Reporting of Information and Communications about Potential Defects, of Title 49 of the CFR. Specifically, we are updating and/or supplementing the mailing and address information found in some sections, and correcting erroneous references found in other sections. We are also moving one paragraph of part 573, requiring submission of draft owner notification letters to NHTSA, to another paragraph found in part 577 that addresses the content of owner notification letters, where that paragraph more logically fits. None of these amendments impose or relax any substantive requirements or burdens on manufacturers.
