DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

49 CFR Part 579

[Docket No. NHTSA-2012-0068; Notice 7]
RIN 2127-AK72


Early Warning Reporting, Foreign Defect Reporting, and Motor 
Vehicle and Equipment Recall Regulations; Delay of Effective Date; 
Correction

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 
Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On August 20, 2013, NHTSA published a final rule amending its 
Early Warning Rule (EWR) with an effective date of August 20, 2014. On 
July 28, 2014, NHTSA published a rule which, in part, attempted to 
delay the effective date of the provisions until January 1, 2015. 
However, the information in the DATES section of the July 28 rule did 
not adequately project that action. This document corrects that error.

DATES: This correction is effective August 20, 2014. The effective date 
for the amendments to 49 CFR 579.21 and 579.22, published August 20, 
2013 (78 FR 51382), and effective August 20, 2014, is delayed until 
January 1, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For non-legal issues concerning early 
warning provisions, contact Leo Yon, Safety Defects Engineer, Early 
Warning Reporting Division, NHTSA, telephone 202-366-7028, email 
leo.yon@dot.gov. For legal issues, contact Andrew DiMarsico, Office of 
Chief Counsel, NHTSA, telephone 202-366-1834.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 20, 2013, NHTSA published a final 
rule amending certain provisions of the EWR regulations at 49 CFR part 
579 Subpart C ``Reporting of Early Warning Information.'' 78 FR 51382. 
In summary, the new provisions:
     Require light vehicle manufacturers to specify the vehicle 
type and the fuel and/or propulsion system type in their quarterly EWR 
reports.
     Add new component categories for reporting on light 
vehicles: Electronic stability control, forward collision avoidance, 
lane departure prevention, and backover prevention, foundation brakes, 
and automatic brake controls.
     Add one new component category for buses, emergency 
vehicles, and medium-heavy vehicle manufacturers: Electronic stability 
control/roll stability control.

Need for Correction

    The final rule stated that these new provisions will be effective 
August 20, 2014. On July 28, 2014, at 79 FR 43670, NHTSA intended to 
delay the effective date of the amendments to Sec. Sec.  579.21 and 
579.22 until January 1, 2015, but did not correctly state that in the 
DATES section.
    In FR Doc. 2014-17497 appearing on page 43671 in the Federal 
Register of Monday, July 28, 2014, the following corrections are made:
    In the DATES section in the left column, revise the second 
paragraph to read as follows:
    ``The effective date for the amendments to 49 CFR 579.21 in this 
final rule is January 1, 2015. The effective date for the amendments to 
49 CFR 579.21 and 579.22, published August 20, 2013 (78 FR 51382), and 
effective August 20, 2014, is delayed until January 1, 2015.''

Associate Administrator for Enforcement.
