DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AM14 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Expansion of Temporary Exemption Program to Domestic Manufacturers for Research, Demonstrations, and Other Purposes 

In the Fall of 2020, NHTSA announced its plan to publish an Interim Final Rule (IFR) to set a new regulation allowing entities to request exemptions to operate nonconforming vehicles, on public roads for purposes of research, investigations, demonstrations, training, competitive racing events, show, or display, but not sale or lease. The IFR would also have pursued new submission and reporting requirements for vehicles to be exempted under the new regulation, mirroring those applicable to exempted imported vehicles. NHTSA now plans this action stage as a NPRM.
