Title: +Hazardous Materials: Approval and Communication Requirements for the Safe Transportation of Air Bag Inflators, Air Bag Modules, and Seat-Belt Pretensioners (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would revise the Hazardous Materials Regulations applicable to air bag inflators, air bag modules, and seat-belt pretensioners. The changes would incorporate into the regulations the provisions of certain special permits with proven safety records. In addition, the rule would revise the current approval and documentation requirements for a material appropriately classified as a UN3268 air bag inflator, air bag module, or seat-belt pretensioner. This rulemaking was recently upgraded to significant.

Additional Information: Includes Retrospective Review under E.O. 13563. HM-254; SB - Y, IC - Y, SLT - N; This rulemaking may result in a decrease of $18,000.00 in the annual burden and costs under OMB Control Number 2137-0051 due to proposed changes to incorporate provisions contained in certain widely-used or longstanding special permits that have an established safety record. This rulemaking should result in an overall decrease of $11,385.00 in the annual burden and cost to OMB Control Number 2137-0557 due to the larger cost savings of reducing the number of approvals required by testers of air bags and air bag modules. This rulemaking may result in a decrease of $5,706.60 in the annual burden and cost to OMB Control No. 2137-0034 due to shippers no longer being required to put the EX numbers on shipping papers for air bag modules.
