DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AK87 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: ●Upgrade of Event Data Recorder Requirements 
Abstract: This rulemaking would expand the utility of the amount and type of data Event Data Recorders (EDRs) capture in light vehicles in the event of a crash. The rulemaking would consider requiring some of the optional data elements specified in 49 CFR part 563. Part 563 established the current reporting requirement of voluntarily installed EDRs in light vehicles. In addition, this rulemaking would make revisions to the optional data elements to account for the latest advances in vehicle safety. Part 563 presently requires vehicle manufacturers who are voluntarily installing EDRs to be in compliance with the regulation by September 1, 2012. In a separate rulemaking, the agency would propose requiring that all light vehicles comply with the requirements specified in current 49 CFR 563. This rulemaking would seek additional information from the public and expand upon that initiative. Moreover, this rulemaking would contribute to advancements in vehicle designs, advanced restraints and other safety countermeasures. The costs are expected to be minimal since some vehicle manufacturers presently capture additional data beyond part 563 in their EDRs.
