The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced an All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Safety Summit to be held October 11-12, 2012, in Bethesda, Maryland. According to CPSC, which in 2006 issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) on new ATV standards, several requirements in the 2006 NPR differ from those currently governing the safety of three- or four-wheeled recreational vehicles designed for off-road use. With an eye toward resolving these issues, the Commission has asked stakeholders to participate in a summit featuring a series of panels on both rulemaking and non-rulemaking topics. In particular, these sessions will cover subjects pertaining to (i) vehicle characteristics, (ii) consumer awareness, (iii) state legislation, (iv) ATV training, (v) public awareness and education, and (vi) technology innovations. CSPC has requested that individuals interested in serving as panelists register for the summit by September 14, 2012, while all others should register by October 5. The agency will also accept written comments on or before November 14. See Federal Register, August 27, 2012.
