NHTSA Delays Requirement to 2021 Featured

By Staff Writer December 02, 2019

The National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration responded to petitions for reconsideration regarding NHTSA’s Oct. 2 final rule amending NHTSA’s odometer disclosure requirements.

After consideration of the petitions, NHTSA has decided to grant the petition. The change to the exemption from the odometer disclosure requirements will take effect on Jan. 1, 2021 and will apply to model year 2011 and newer vehicles. The amendments in the Oct. 2, 2019 final rule allowing states to adopt electronic odometer disclosure systems will still take effect as scheduled on Dec. 31.

The petition was to allow states to adopt electronic odometer disclosure systems and changing the time when vehicles become exempt from federal odometer disclosure requirements from 10 years to 20 years. NHTSA received petitions for reconsideration from the America Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the State of Delaware Department of Transportation requesting that the agency delay the effective date of the changes to the exemption from odometer disclosure requirements for one year.
