National Highway Traffic Safety Administration March 9, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

New Car Assessment Program (NCAP); Safety Labeling
Document Number: 2010-4867
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-03-09
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
Since September 2007, new passenger vehicles have been required to be labeled with safety rating information published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). This information is required to be part of the Monroney (automobile price sticker) label. In July 2008, NHTSA announced a decision to enhance the NCAP ratings program. In this document, the agency is proposing to upgrade its regulation on vehicle labeling of safety rating information to reflect the enhanced NCAP ratings program. NHTSA is proposing, among other things, to include a new overall vehicle score on the Monroney label.
