The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) to amend its regulations to add specifications and qualification requirements for an anthropomorphic test device representing a 3-year-old child, called the “Q3s” side-impact test dummy. The agency plans to use the Q3s to test child-restraint systems under new side-impact performance requirements that NHTSA said it will propose in a separate NPR. The “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” of July 6, 2012, requires that NHTSA issue new rules to protect children during side-impact crashes. Comments will be accepted until January 21, 2014. See Federal Register, November 21, 2013.
