The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has granted a petition for reconsideration of its final rule amending motorcycle helmet labeling requirements and will permit voluntary early compliance with the rule, which takes effect May 13, 2013. Thus, voluntary early compliance will be permitted “as of August 13, 2012, if all of the amended requirements of the final rule are met.” Under the rule, a single, enhanced certification label is required on motorcycle helmets to “discourage the production, sale, and attachment of labels [to novelty helmets] that misleadingly resemble legitimate certification labels.” See Federal Register, August 13, 2012.
