DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL04 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Part 572 Q3s 3-Year-Old Side Impact Dummy (MAP-21) 

This rulemaking would incorporate a new anthropomorphic test device in 49 CFR part 572. The new device is a crash test dummy that represents a 3-year-old child. The dummy, known as the Q3s, was developed to evaluate injuries to children in side impact crashes. NHTSA seeks to adopt the Q3s into part 572 because the Agency has proposed to use the dummy in a statutorily mandated rulemaking adopting a side impact protection requirement in FMVSS No. 213, Child Restraint Systems. The side impact protection final rule is mandated by MAP-21.
