Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Exemption Renewal for KBC Companies, LLC d/b/a Innovative Electronics
Notice of renewal of exemption; request for comments.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) renews an exemption that allows commercial motor vehicle operators to use trailer-mounted electric brake controllers which monitor and actuate electric trailer brakes based on inertial forces developed in response to the braking action of the towing vehicle. The Agency has concluded that granting this exemption renewal to allow the use of trailer- mounted electric brake controllers will maintain a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption. However, the Agency requests comments on this issue, especially from anyone who believes this standard will not be maintained.
