The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a notice advising that its technical specifications, which vehicle manufacturers need to support the vehicle identification number (VIN)-based safety recall look-up tool housed on the agency’s Web site—www.safercar.gov, are now available. The tech- nical specifications are intended to facilitate the secure electronic transfer of manufacturer recall data to NHTSA when a consumer submits VIN information to the agency’s Web site to learn vehicle recall information. The requirement applies to companies that manufacture 25,000 light vehicles annually or 5,000 motorcycles annually. See Federal Register, March 10, 2014.
