Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Electric-Powered Vehicles: Electrolyte Spillage and Electrical Shock Protection
This final rule clarifies the direct contact protection requirements for high voltage connectors in Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 305, ``Electric-powered vehicles: electrolyte spillage and electrical shock protection.'' It amends the standard to make clear the allowance of high voltage connectors that require the use of a tool to separate from their mating component. This final rule also makes three minor technical corrections to FMVSS No. 305.
