NHTSA will hold public meetings with interested members of the public to discuss the manner in which early warning reporting (EWR) information is to be submitted by motor vehicle and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) pursuant to subpart C of 49 CFR part 579. NHTSA will hold four separate public meetings to discuss submission by manufacturers of the following four types of products: tires, child restraint systems and other equipment, light vehicles, and medium/heavy vehicles and buses. At these meetings, NHTSA will discuss the procedures for the submission of EWR information, security measures for protection of EWR information, the manner in which NHTSA will acknowledge receipt of EWR information and identify problems with the submissions, and other technical matters. NHTSA will also answer questions raised on these issues at the meetings.

NHTSA recommends that all visitors arrive at least 45 minutes early in order to pass through building security. Visitors to the building should enter through the Southwest lobby to sign in with security and to be escorted to the meeting room.
