NTEA's Rear Visibility FMVSS 111 Field of View (Rearview Camera) Conformity
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 rating or less — will phase in for altered vehicles starting May 1, 2017 with a field of view requirement. Full rear visibility conformance is required by May 1, 2018.
Resources available to NTEA members:
Who is affected?
- Truck equipment distributors and upfitters that modify vehicles in gross vehicle weight ranges governed by the new regulation may need to relocate the rearview camera.
- 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 conformance.
