On November 19, 2014, the Commission published an NPR in the Federal Register proposing standards that would apply to ROVs. (79 FR 68964). The Commission issued the proposed rule under the authority of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). In response to requests for an extension of the comment period by the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association (ROHVA) and the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), the Commission extended the comment period to April 8, 2015. (80 FR 3535 (January 23, 2015)). ROHVA and OPEI have each requested another extension to the comment period. ROHVA asked for additional time to review documents provided by the Commission. OPEI noted a need for additional time for OPEI to complete and review “round robin” testing that OPEI is conducting to gauge the reproducibility and repeatability of tests the Commission proposed in the NPR. The Commission has considered the requests and is extending the comment period until June 19, 2015.
