Motorcycle Helmets Manufactured by Frenchy's Worldwide Helmets; 
Public Proceeding Scheduled

agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

action: Notice of public meeting.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

summary: NHTSA will hold a public meeting on June 1, 1994 regarding an 
initial determination that certain motorcycle helmets manufactured by 
Frenchy's Worldwide Helmets fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle 
Safety Standard No. 218.

for further information contact: John Lee, Office of Vehicle Safety 
Compliance, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 400 Seventh 
Street SW., Washington, DC 20590; 202-366-5299.

supplementary information: Pursuant to section 152(a) of the National 
Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, as amended, 15 U.S.C. 
1412(a), NHTSA's Associate Administrator for Enforcement has made an 
initial determination that certain motorcycle helmets manufactured by 
Frenchy's Worldwide Helmets, (Frenchy's), do not comply with the 
requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 218, 
``Motorcycle Helmets,'' 49 CFR 571.218. Compliance tests performed for 
NHTSA indicate that Frenchy's model ``B-13'' helmets do not meet the 
impact attenuation, penetration, and retention system requirements of 
FMVSS No. 218 and therefore would not provide adequate protection to 
users in the event of a crash. In addition, the ``B-13'' helmets fail 
to comply with the labelling requirements of the Standard.
    A public proceeding will be held at 10 a.m., on June 1, 1994 in 
room 2230, Department of Transportation Building, 400 Seventh Street, 
SW., Washington, DC, at which time the manufacturer will be afforded an 
opportunity to present data, views, and arguments to establish that the 
helmets covered by this initial determination comply with FMVSS No. 
218.
    Interested persons are invited to participate through written or 
oral presentations. Persons wishing to make oral presentations are 
requested to notify Ms. Elaine Beale, Office of Vehicle Safety 
Compliance, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, room 6111, 
400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590, 202-366-2832, before the 
close of business on May 25, 1994. Written comments must be submitted 
to the same address on or before May 27, 1994.
    The agency's investigative file in this matter is available for 
public inspection during working hours (9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) in its 
Technical Reference Library, room 5108, 400 Seventh Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20590.

    Authority: 15 U.S.C. Sec. 1412; delegation of authority at 49 
CFR 1.50(a) and 49 CFR 501.8.

    Issued on: April 28, 1994.
William A. Boehly,
Associate Administrator for Enforcement.
