PHMSA Final Rule on Safe Transport of Air Bag Inflators and Modules, Seat-Belt Pretensioners

Posted in on Mon, Aug 12, 2013

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has amended the Hazardous Materials Regulations applicable to air bag inflators, air bag modules, and seat-belt pretensioners. The revisions incorporate the provisions of two special permits into the regulations.  In addition, PHMSA is amending the current approval and documentation requirements for a material classified as a UN3268 air bag inflator, air bag module, or seat-belt pretensioner. These revisions are intended to reduce the regulatory burden on the automotive industry and facilitate commerce, while continuing to maintain an equivalent level of safety.  The rule becomes effective August 29, 2013.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-07-30/html/2013-18263.htm
