The National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) has released its Vehicle Certification Guide — an authority on motor vehicle certification, labeling requirements, and related regulations under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act in January 2008.

The Guide assists multi-stage manufacturers in meeting complex vehicle certification compliance requirements.

Each type of manufacturing requires compliance with specific federal motor vehicle safety regulations including vehicle labeling. The publication clarifies vehicle certification labeling as it relates to incomplete, intermediate, or final-stage manufacturing. Also covered is certification and labeling requirements for vehicle altering. The Guide includes eight chapters plus definitions, exhibits, and an appendix as well as a full-color Federal Lighting Guide Poster and worksheets.

NTEA members receive one copy of the Guide free of charge upon request and may order more copies for $79. Non-members pay $149. For more details or to order the Guide (item 2236), visit www.ntea.com and click on the “Storefront.”
