SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

On September 21, 2010, FMCSA published a direct final rule entitled “Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation: Antilock Brake Systems” in the Federal Register (75 FR 57393). This direct final rule amends 49 CFR Part 393 by requiring that each trailer with an anitlock brake system be equipped with an external malfunction indicator lamp. FMCSA used the Agency's direct final rule procedures (75 FR 29915, May 28, 2010) because it was a routine and non-controversial amendment, and the Agency did not expect any adverse comments. The direct final rule advised the public that unless a written adverse comment, or a written notice of intent to submit such an adverse comment, was received by October 21, 2010, the Agency would provide notice confirming the effective date. Because the Agency did not receive any comments to the docket by October 21, 2010, the direct final rule will become effective November 22, 2010.

Issued on: October 27, 2010.

Larry W. Minor,

Associate Administrator for Policy.
