Title: Allocation of Responsibility for Defects and Noncompliances in Original Equipment 

This rulemaking would prescribe a new regulation changing 49 U.S.C. 30102(b)(1)(F) and (G) to allocate equitably responsibility for defects and noncompliances between motor vehicle and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers, pursuant to the authority granted to the Secretary by 49 U.S.C. 30102(b)(2), to better reflect the realities of the modern relationship between motor vehicle and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers within the automotive industry. In light of the above, this rulemaking would require that 49 CFR parts 573 and 577 be updated as necessary.
