Denial of Petition for Import Eligibility
Document Number: 2014-28725
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-12-09
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document sets forth the reasons for the denial of a petition submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B). The petition, which was submitted by US SPECS of Havre de Grace, Maryland, a registered importer (RI) of motor vehicles, requested NHTSA to decide that what US SPECS described as a ``2012 Lita GLE-6 low-speed vehicle (LSV)'' that was not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) is eligible for importation into the United States because it has safety features that comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all such standards. NHTSA is denying the petition because the 2012 Lita GLE-6 as originally manufactured would be classified as something other than an LSV, and could not be converted to an LSV through the RI process.
