WASHINGTON (Nov. 7, 2016) — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has scheduled a Nov. 10 meeting to allow interested parties to comment on NHTSA's Federal Automated Vehicles Policy.
The new policy is designed to speed the delivery of an initial regulatory framework for highly automated vehicles (HAVs) and encourage conformity with best practices to guide manufacturers and suppliers in the safe design, development, testing and deployment of HAVs, the agency said in a Nov. 7 Federal Register notice.
The public meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the U.S. General Services Administration Regional Office Building at 301 7th Street S.W. in Washington, and continue until 4 p.m., NHTSA said. It will be an open listening session to provide the greatest opportunity possible for interested parties to comment, it said.
All comments will be oral, and any written presentations should be submitted to the NHTSA docket, the agency said. Also, all interested parties unable to attend the meeting or unable to speak are invited to submit comments to the docket, it said.
