Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles

Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Oct. 28, 2009


CPSC is considering whether there may be unreasonable risks of injury and death associated with Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles (ROVs). This advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) begins a rulemaking proceeding under the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). Although a voluntary standard for ROVs has been proposed, the Commission does not believe the proposed voluntary standard as currently drafted adequately addresses the risk of injury associated with ROVs. The Commission is considering whether there may be unreasonable deaths and injuries associated with ROVs such that rulemaking is necessary.


Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking


Staff sent a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) briefing package to the Commission for Commission consideration on September 24, 2014.  A Commission briefing is scheduled for Wednesday, October 22, 2014.
