NHTSA has published an Interim Final Rule along with a Request for Comments in response to a petition asking for relief in meeting phase-in and full compliance dates for FMVSS 141 - Minimum Sound Requirements for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles. Assembly and supplier part plants that were shut down due to COVID-19 precautions are causing issues in meeting the projected timing for compliance. Initial NHTSA response is a 6 month delay in compliance dates for FMVSS 141.
SAE have announced that the Government/Industry Meeting 2021 is to be held virtually over the originally planned dates of February 2-3, 2021, and will still feature the keynotes, emission and safety technical sessions, and exhibits that the event is known for.
We hope you will spare a moment to complete the quick, online survey coming your way soon.
