Legislation update

As part of our customer service program we are trying to keep the automotive industry updated on the US legislation and other legislation worldwide on tire pressure monitoring and identification. The link below takes you to the ruling by NHTSA. You can download these documents from this site and review.

National Highway and Safety Transportation Act. The Transportation recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation Act of 2000 mandates a rulemaking proceeding to require motor vehicles to be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system that warns the driver a tire is significantly underinflated. In response, this document establishes a new Federal Motor vehicle Safety Standard No 138 that would require tire pressure monitoring systems to be installed in new passenger cars, in new light trucks and multipurpose passenger vehicles.
