NTEA's Rear Visibility FMVSS 111 Field of View (Rearview Camera) Conformity Manual

The new rear visibility portion of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard FMVSS 111 rear visibility field of view regulation  — applicable to vehicles with a 10,000-pound gross vehicle weight or less — will phase in for altered vehicles starting May 1, 2017 with a field of view requirement. Full rear visibility compliance is required by May 1, 2018.

Read more insight on the implications of these new regulations in this article featured in the February 2017 issue of NTEA News.

These amendments have implications for truck equipment distributors and upfitters that modify vehicles in gross vehicle weight ranges governed by the new regulations and may require relocation of the rearview camera. In addition, fleet managers will want to understand the new regulation to monitor compliance with FMVSS for their upfitted vehicles. Equipment manufacturers will want to better understand any design implications for truck mounted equipment, that may impact rearview camera placement and FMVSS 111 compliance.

NTEA has developed a test manual and kit (NTEA’s Rear Visibility FMVSS 111 Field of View [Rearview Camera] Conformity Manual) to aid in complying to requirements available for order in April 2017.
