I. Background

On May 20, 1999, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published a notice of intent to establish an advisory committee (Committee) for a negotiated rulemaking to develop recommendations for regulations governing the certification of vehicles built in two or more stages. The notice requested comment on membership, the interests affected by the rulemaking, the issues that the Committee should address, and the procedures that it should follow. The reader is referred to that notice (64 FR 27499) for further information on these issues.

On December 14-15, 1999, interested parties attended a public meeting in Washington, DC. As part of that meeting, the schedule of specific dates for holding meetings of the Advisory Committee was agreed upon. Meetings of the Committee will be open to the public so that individuals who are not part of the Committee may attend and observe. Any person attending the Committee meetings may address the Committee, if time permits, or file statements with the Committee.

II. Authority

5 U.S.C. sections 561 et seq., delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.50.
