NHTSA produced this regulation as part of its ongoing effort to harmonize vehicle safety standards under the Economic Commission for Europe 1998 Agreement. After the vote was finalized in favor of establishing a global technical regulation on automotive glazing, NHTSA is considering adopting this regulation.

The changes would allow for the U.S. to have similar regulatory requirements as other industrialized countries around the world. It would modernize test procedures for tempered glass, laminated glass, and glass-plastic glazing used in front and rear windshields and side windows.

Comments can be submitted for this regulation until Aug. 20, 2012.
