Rear Visibility NCAP Request for Comment
This document requests public comment on the agency’s planned update to the U.S. New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). This update would enhance the program’s ability to recommend to motor vehicle consumers various vehicle models that contain rearview video systems that would substantially enhance the driver’s ability to avoid backover crashes.  

Request for Comment

49 CFR Part 301 Fuel System Integrity  
226 49 CFR Parts 571, 585 Ejection Mitigation
This final rule establishes a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 226, "Ejection Mitigation" to reduce the partial and complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in crashes, particularly rollover crashes.  The standard applies to the side windows next to the first three rows of seats, and to a portion of the cargo area behind the first or second rows, in motor vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 4,536 kilogram (kg) or less (10,000 pounds (lb) or less).  To assess compliance, the agency is adopting a test in which an impactor is propelled from inside a test vehicle toward the windows.  The ejection mitigation safety system is required to prevent the impactor from moving more than a specified distance beyond the plane of a window.
