The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a final rule responding to petitions for reconsideration filed after it published the rule in August 2013 amending certain parts of the early warning reporting (EWR) rule, foreign defect reporting and regulations governing motor vehicle and equipment safety recalls. NHTSA has made several changes to the rule, including delaying the EWR’s effective date until January 1, 2015, and clarifying when reports will be due. It also made several other technical corrections. See Federal Register, July 28, 2014.
