Title: +Requirements for Importing Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Equipment 

This rulemaking would amend regulations that pertain to the importation of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment subject to the Federal motor vehicle safety, bumper, and theft prevention standards. The amendments would implement a recently enacted statute, codified at 49 U.S.C. section 30164(c)-(f), that authorizes NHTSA to issue regulations conditioning the importation of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment upon the manufacturer (including the importer) providing such information that is necessary to identify and track the product by name and the manufacturer's address, and each retailer or distributor to which the manufacturer directly supplied motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment.
