Title: Amend the Labeling Requirement for Visual Inspection of Compressed Natural Gas Fuel Containers Specified in FMVSS No. 304, Compressed Natural Gas Fuel Container Integrity 

This notice proposes to amend the labeling requirement for periodic visual inspection of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel containers specified in FMVSS No. 304, Compressed Natural Gas Fuel Container Integrity, in response to petitions for rulemaking from the American Trucking Association and Natural Gas Vehicle America. This rulemaking, with no reduction in safety, would alleviate the cost burden associated with multiple yearly inspections.
