NHTSA Barriers to Automated Driving Systems ANPRM to OMB

On Thursday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received from DOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) on “Removing Regulatory Barriers for Automated Driving Systems” for review.

The Fall 2018 Unified Agenda listing for this rulemaking explains:

“This notice seeks comment on existing motor vehicle regulatory barriers to the introduction and certification of automated driving systems. NHTSA is developing the appropriate analysis of requirements that are necessary to maintain existing levels of safety while enabling innovative vehicle designs and removing or modifying those requirements that would no longer be appropriate if a human driver will not be operating the vehicle. NHTSA previously published a Federal Register notice requesting public comment on January 18, 2018.”
