The final rule that is the subject of this correction responded to petitions for reconsideration of the agency's March 1999 final rule establishing Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, Child Restraint Anchorage Systems (49 CFR 571.225), and of the agency's previous responses to petitions, published in August 1999 and July 2000.
Need for Correction
As published, the final rule contains errors that are in need of clarification. One error leads to unclear regulatory text that the agency wants to correct prior to October 1, when 49 CFR part 571 is annually revised. Other errors are more minor and will be corrected in a subsequent Federal Register document that responds to petitions for reconsideration received on the June 27, 2003 final rule (68 FR 38208).
