National Highway Traffic Safety Administration February 3, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Motor Vehicle Brake Fluids
Document Number: 2010-1958
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-02-03
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This NPRM proposes to amend FMVSS No. 116, Motor Vehicle Brake Fluids, so that brake fluids would be tested with ethylene, propylene, and diene terpolymer (EPDM) rubber, as this type of rubber is increasingly being used in brake fluid seals. This NPRM also updates references to standards issued by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the American Society for Materials and Testing (ASTM) (no substantive changes to the standard would be made by these updates), and corrects minor errors in the standard.
