Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is accepting comments through Jan. 6, 2014, on a proposed rule that would require registered importers of motor vehicles not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards to certify that an imported vehicle either (a) is not required to comply with the parts marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard or (b) complies with those requirements as manufactured or as modified prior to importation. NHTSA states that this language was inadvertently omitted from an August 2011 final rule amending its regulations to address issues related to the RI program.
