On January 29, Global Automakers and the Auto Alliance submitted the attached comments concerning the Interim Final Rule (IFR) issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the safe handling of recalled airbags, consistent with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”).  The comments support the exemption contained in the IFR and provide a number of suggestions for additional improvement that will further the safe and effective removal of defective airbag inflators from vehicles and the safe and environmentally sound disposal of airbag waste generally.
