April 26, 2011

Global Automakers submitted comments regarding NHTSA'S February 25, 2011, request for comments on consumer information regarding child restraining fit program under the agency's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Global Automakers fully supports efforts to provide consumers information on appropriate matching of Child Restraints (CR) with their vehicles.  Should the agency decide to proceed with implementation of the CR fit program, the Association outlined several areas the agency should consider before issuing the final rule.  These include: A role in coordinating and maintaining the system; restrictions on participation in the program; restrictions on consumer information; restrictions on what constitutes a good fit; and placement of fit information on NHTSA website.
