FMVSS 205: Glazing Materials

Published in the April 2019 issue of Washington Update

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) withdrew its June 21, 2012, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), to revise Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 205, "Glazing materials," to harmonize it with Global Technical Regulation (GTR) No. 6, "Safety Glazing Materials for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Equipment." Based on the results of the agency's review of available information and analysis of the technically substantive comments on the proposal, NHTSA is unable to conclude at this time that harmonizing FMVSS No. 205 with GTR No. 6 would increase safety. Agency Contact: James Myers 202-366-1810.

PUBLISHED: 4/4/2019; ACTION: Withdrawal of NPRM; REFERENCE: 84 FR 13222; REG: 49 CFR Part 571.205.
