DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL05 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: ●Amend FMVSS No. 210 to Incorporate the Use of a New Force Application Device (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 210, Seat belt assembly anchorages, to replace the existing body blocks for testing the strength of seat belts with a new Force Application Device and associated positioning procedure. The new force application device would be used as a testing interface to transfer loads onto the seat belt anchorage system during compliance tests of seat belt anchorage strength. The device represents a human torso and pelvis. The new device comes in two sizes, one representative of a mid-size adult male, and the other of a small occupant. This rulemaking would propose that both sizes be used in FMVSS No. 210. Because the device is easier to use than the current body blocks, this rulemaking would simplify the compliance test of the standard and make NHTSA´s evaluation of seat belt anchorage strength more effective. We estimate the one-time cost of purchasing a set of these devices (approximately $40,000) would be offset by the continual labor cost savings in setting up the devices for testing. NHTSA´s testing has demonstrated that the proposed force application devices do not appear to affect the stringency of the standard.
