Dear Mr. West:

This responds to your letter of November 1, 1994, requesting information on any rules or standards applicable to a "windshield cleaning device." As your letter describes, "(t)he product is a clear strip which is adhered to the windshield of an automobile. The action of the wiper blades passing over the device causes the wiper blades to function more effectively."

I am enclosing a copy of a May 29, 1992 letter to Mr. John J. Jacoby concerning a similar device. I believe this letter contains the information you need. If you have any other questions, please contact Mary Versailles of my staff at this address or by phone at (202) 366-2992.


Philip R. Recht Chief Counsel
