SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B), a motor vehicle, including a 
trailer, that was not originally manufactured to conform to all 
applicable FMVSS, and has no substantially similar U.S.-certified 
counterpart, shall be refused admission into the United States unless 
NHTSA has decided that the motor vehicle has safety features that 
comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all 
applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence 
as NHTSA decides to be adequate.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    Wallace Environmental Testing Laboratories, Inc. (WETL), of 
Houston, Texas (Registered Importer R-09-005) has petitioned NHTSA to 
decide whether nonconforming 2001 PT Gemala Saranaupaya 1600 double 
axle trailers are eligible for importation into the United States. WETL 
believes these vehicles are capable of being modified to meet all 
applicable FMVSS.
    WETL submitted information with its petition intended to 
demonstrate that 2001 PT Gemala Saranaupaya 1600 double axle trailers 
are capable of being altered to comply with all standards to which they 
were not originally manufactured to conform.
    The petitioner contends that the nonconforming 2001 PT Gemala 
Saranaupaya 1600 double axle trailers meet or are capable of being 
readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated:
    Standard No. 106--Brake Hoses: Installation of conforming brake 
hoses.
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: The trailer will require the following modifications to 
comply with the requirements. On the rear, 3 lamps will be installed as 
close as practical to the top of the vehicle at the same height and as 
close as practical to the center line with lamp centers spaced not less 
than 6 inches or more than 12 inches. The two red lamps on the rear and 
two amber lamps on the front must be replaced with lamps conforming to 
the requirements. The brake and turn signal lamps must be replaced as 
well.

    Standard No. 119 New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other than 
Passenger Cars: Installation of tires conforming to the requirements of 
the standard.
    Standard No. 120 Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other 
than Passenger Cars: Installation of a tire and rim information placard 
in order to meet the requirements of the standard.
    Standard No. 121 Air Brake Systems: Installation of a brake system 
designed specifically for the vehicle in order to meet the requirements 
of FMVSS No. 121. Test reports intended to validate that the system 
conforms to the requirements of the standard were submitted as part of 
this petition.
    Standard No. 224 Rear Impact Protection: Installation of a rear 
impact guard that conforms to the equipment requirements of FMVSS No. 
223 Rear Impact Guards in a manner consistent with the manufacturer's 
installation instructions.
    49 CFR part 565 Vehicle Identification Number Requirements: 
Installation of a vehicle identification number (VIN) label to conform 
to the requirements of this standard.
    Notice of final action on the petition will be published in the 
Federal Register pursuant to the authority indicated below.

    Authority:  49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A) and (b)(1); 49 CFR 593.7;
