Notice of public meeting.


This notice announces a public meeting to discuss the manner in which Early Warning Reporting (EWR) information required to be submitted to ODI by motor vehicle and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers will be submitted to, and retained by, the agency. On July 3, 2002, NHTSA issued a final rule implementing the EWR provisions of the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act. At this meeting, NHTSA will discuss the methods by which EWR information must be submitted, security for that information, acknowledgement of receipt of that information, and other technical aspects associated with those submissions. The agency will also respond to questions about those issues from the public.


The Agency's public meeting relating to EWR data submission will be held on Wednesday, September 24, 2002, beginning at 10 a.m. in Room 2230 of the United States Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh St., SW (NASSIF Building), Washington, DC 20590.
