Type: Rule
Date: 2010-02-08
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document provides the agency's response to petitions for reconsideration of a November 12, 2008 final rule that amended the child restraint systems (CRSs) prescribed in Appendix A of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, ``Occupant crash protection.'' The final rule established a new appendix, ``Appendix A- 1,'' which effectively deleted seven older CRSs, added five new CRSs, and provided cosmetic replacements for seven others. Today's response grants some aspects of two of the petitions. All other requests are denied.
