NHTSA issues Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) to implement laws from Congress. These regulations allow us to fulfill our mission to prevent and reduce vehicle crashes.
|FMVSS Number Sort descending||Part||Subject||Actions|
|49 CFR Parts 523, 533 and 537||Light Truck Average Fuel Economy Standards, Model Years 2008-2011
This final rule reforms the structure of the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) program for light trucks and establishes higher CAFE standards for model year (MY) 2008-2011 light trucks. Reforming the CAFE program will enable it to achieve larger fuel savings, while enhancing safety and preventing adverse economic consequences.

|49 CFR Part 571||Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Rearview Mirrors
In response to a petition for rulemaking, this document proposes to require straight trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of between 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) and 11,793 kilograms (26,000 pounds) to be equipped with a rear object detection system.

|49 CFR Parts 523, 531, 534, 536, 537||Average Fuel Economy Standards, Passenger Cars and Light Trucks, Model Years 2011-2015
Proposes substantial increases in the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for passenger cars and light trucks that would enhance energy security by improving fuel economy. Since the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted from the tailpipes of new motor vehicles is the natural by-product of the combustion of fuel, the increased standards would also address climate change by reducing tailpipe emissions of CO2. Those emissions represent 97 percent of the total greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles. Implementation of the new standards would dramatically add to the billions of barrels of fuel already saved since the beginning of the CAFE program in 1975.

|49 CFR Part 533||Reforming the Automobile Fuel Economy Standards Program
This document seeks comment on various issues relating to the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) program. In particular, this document seeks comments relating to possible enhancements to the program that will assist in furthering fuel conservation while protecting motor vehicle safety and the economic vitality of the auto industry. The agency is particularly interested in improvements to the structure of the CAFE program authorized under current statutory authority. The focus of this document is to solicit comments on the structure of the CAFE program, not the stringency level for a future CAFE standard.

|49 CFR Part 591||Importation of Commercial Motor Vehicles
This document proposes to add a definition of the term "import" to our regulation on the importation of motor vehicles.
