Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association Urges Enthusiasts to Comment on CPSC’s ROV Rulemaking
ROHVA

ROHVA has created a web page - www.rohva.org/anpr - for enthusiasts and industry representatives that contains explanations of ROHVA’s position on ROV standards and links to important documents.  The page also contains a link and other resources to facilitate stakeholders’ submission of comments on the CPSC's ANPR.

 

“ROV stakeholders need to be heard on whether the appropriate next step to establish ROV standards is moving forward with CPSC-imposed mandatory federal standards or instead gaining experience under the ANSI standards and promoting the ROV Safety Rules available at www.rohva.org,” said Paul Vitrano, ROHVA executive vice president.

The ANSI standard development process involves a variety of interests including CPSC and other government representatives, industry, consumers and others.  Participants reach a consensus on an appropriate ANSI standard for ROV equipment, configuration and performance requirements.

 

ROHVA has met several times with CPSC staff in an effort to address their concerns about the ANSI standard. 

 

“ROHVA appreciates the Commissioners’ and CPSC staff’s interest in and willingness to discuss key technical issues, and our dialogue has been productive,” Vitrano said.  “While there is agreement between CPSC and ROHVA on many aspects of ROV standards, there continues to be disagreement over some important technical issues, including vehicle stability, vehicle handling and occupant protection and retention.” 

 

Vitrano concluded, "It also should be noted that the overwhelming majority of ROV operators and passengers use the vehicles safely and responsibly and benefit from the unique recreational and utility capabilities of these vehicles.”

 

The Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association is a national industry organization that promotes the safe and responsible use of ROVs. ROHVA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop equipment, configuration and performance standards. Based in Irvine, Calif., the not-for-profit association is sponsored by Arctic Cat, BRP, Polaris and Yamaha. For more information visit www.rohva.org.
