Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Certification of Compliance With Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs)

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); request for comments.

The FMCSA proposes to amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) so that motor carriers ensure that each commercial motor vehicle (CMV) they operate in interstate commerce displays a label certifying that the vehicle complies with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs) in effect on the date of manufacture. This rulemaking ensures that all motor carriers operating CMVs in the United States use only vehicles that were certified by the manufacturer as meeting all applicable Federal safety performance requirements.
