Title 49 published on 09-May-2017 04:41
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 49 CFR Part 572 after this date.
NHTSA published a document in the Federal Register on February 27, 2012 (77 FR 11651), establishing specifications and qualification requirements for a Hybrid III 10-year-old child size test dummy. The regulatory text adopted by that document contained errors, as did some of the drawings of the test dummy and other materials incorporated by reference pertaining to the test dummy. This document corrects those errors by revising regulatory text and incorporating by reference a corrected drawing package. We have also made conforming changes to the parts list and users' manual for the dummy, which this document also incorporates by reference.
This document proposes to amend our regulations to add specifications and qualification requirements for an anthropomorphic test device (ATD) representing a 3-year-old child, called the “Q3s” side impact test dummy. The agency plans to use the Q3s to test child restraint systems to new side impact performance requirements which NHTSA will propose to adopt into the Federal motor vehicle safety standard for child restraint systems by way of a separate NPRM. Adopting side impact protection requirements is consistent with a statutory provision set forth in the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” (July 6, 2012), that the agency issue a final rule to improve the protection of children seated in child restraint systems during side impacts.
This final rule establishes regulations setting forth specifications and qualification requirements for a Hybrid III 10-year-old size child test dummy (HIII-10C). In a companion document published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register , NHTSA is adopting use of the dummy to test child restraints recommended for children weighing more than 65 pounds (lb) for compliance with the Federal motor vehicle safety standard for child restraint systems. The HIII-10C dummy enables NHTSA to assess the performance of child restraint systems in restraining children in the 8- to 12-year-old age range.
