Evaluating Safety Regulations, Then and Now 840907

The FMVSS were established to provide the public with uniform safety equipment and design standards based on sound research. Ongoing evaluation is essential to maintain the effectiveness and safety of FMVSS and to ensure that current technology is incorporated in standards development. Serious injury (AIS 3 or greater) reporting by NASS should be upgraded to facilitate standards evaluation and development. Although cost effectiveness is a mandated criteria for standards evaluation, the protection of human life and limb must remain the principle criteria for measuring effectiveness. A citizen's advisory panel, similar to the NMVSAC should be established to assist NHTSA in establishing priorities for standards evaluation, development and promulgation.
