Title: +FMVSS No. 218 and Enforcement Policy Concerning Novelty Helmets 

This rulemaking would clarify which helmets are motor vehicle equipment subject to the minimum requirements of FMVSS No. 218. In addition, this rulemaking would employ certain criteria to more readily identify helmets that do not comply. The rulemaking would provide an alternative compliance process to provide manufacturers employing innovative technologies with an opportunity to establish compliance with FMVSS No. 218 if their products do not meet the aforementioned criteria. This rulemaking would be responsive to requirements of MAP-21 legislation.
