DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL01 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: +FMVSS No. 218 and Enforcement Policy Concerning Novelty Helmets 
Abstract: NHTSA plans to withdraw its May 21, 2015 notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard FMVSS No. 218, Motorcycle helmets. This rulemaking proposed adding a definition of motorcycle helmet, adding preliminary screening requirements and adding an alternate compliance process. Since publication of the NPRM, NHTSA has decided to evaluate other alternatives that might prove effective in reducing novelty helmet availability and use and has decided that changed circumstances warrant its withdrawal.
