Among the changes proposed are the elimination of the requirement that manufacturers submit copies of product evaluation reports; a revision of the definition of “fire” to eliminate two precursors to fire, "sparks" and "smoldering," and add one term, "melt;" modifications related to the reporting on fuel-systems for medium-heavy vehicles and buses; and a limiting of the time period required for reporting updates to a few data elements in reports of deaths and injuries.
