DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AK98 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Pedestrian Safety Global Technical Regulation (RRR) 

This rulemaking would provide requirements to protect pedestrian heads impacting vehicle hoods. NHTSA initiated this rulemaking following the establishment of the Global Technical Regulation (GTR) by the UNECEs World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) in November 2008 and plans to base the new FMVSS on the GTR.  A preliminary analysis indicates very nominal cost and benefits for a GTR-based head impact proposal.  The agency expects to follow this rulemaking with a separate GTR-based proposal to protect pedestrian legs from the front end of vehicles.
