ROV In-Depth Examination Act

The Consumer Product Safety Commission shall have no authority to: (1) establish recreational off-highway vehicle (ROV) performance or configuration standards until the study required by this Act is completed, or (2) require ROV manufacturers to provide performance and technical data to prospective purchasers and to the first purchaser of an ROV for purposes other than resale.

The Commission shall contract with the National Academy of Sciences to determine:

  • the technical validity of the lateral stability and vehicle handling requirements proposed by the Commission for purposes of reducing the risk of ROV off-road rollovers,
  • the number of ROV rollovers that would be prevented if the proposed requirements were adopted,
  • whether there is a technical basis for the proposal to provide information on a point-of-sale hangtag about a vehicle's rollover resistance on a progressive scale, and
  • the effect on the utility of ROVs used by the Armed Forces if the proposed requirements were adopted.
