Title: Off-Highway Vehicles Debris Penetration Hazards 

On April 28, 2021, staff submitted an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) briefing package for Commission consideration concerning fire hazards associated with recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs), utility terrain vehicles/utility task vehicles (UTVs), and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), as well as debris-penetration hazards association with ROVs and UTVs. The Commission published the ANPR on May 11, 2021. Staff evaluated comments on the ANPRM and conducted research. On May 18, 2022, staff submitted to the Commission a draft notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for safety standards for ROVs/UTVs to prevent debris penetration injuries. The NPRM published on July 21,2022. The written comment period on the NPRM closed on September 19, 2022. After reviewing comments submitted on the NPRM, staff is preparing a final rule briefing package for submission to the Commission in fiscal year 2023.

As noted, the fire hazards associated with Off-Highway Vehicles were addressed in the ANPRM, along with the debris penetration hazards. However, fire hazards were not addressed in the NPRM. Staff continues to engage the standard development organizations (SDOs) for off highway vehicles to develop voluntary standard requirements to reduce fire hazards associated with ATVs, ROVs, and UTVs. The fire hazards associated with Off-Highway Vehicles will be addressed in a separate rulemaking.
