DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AK58 Publication ID: Fall 2015 
Title: FMVSS 116, Upgrade Rubber for Brake Fluid Testing 

This rulemaking would amend FMVSS No. 116, Motor vehicle brake fluids, so that brake fluids would be tested with ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) rubber, as this type of rubber is increasingly used in brake fluid seals. This rulemaking would also update references to voluntary standards issued by the SAE International and the American Society for Testing and Materials.
