Child Restraint System (CRS) Registration Collection - February 6, 2019

The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems (CRS),” requires CRS manufacturers to provide different registration methods to the owners of child restraint systems so that they may be directly contacted in a recall campaign. The methods include providing a two‐part perforated registration card and a permanently attached label on the CRS. NHTSA provides a substitute registration form (OMB No. 2127‐0576) on its website, which consumers can send their CRS registration to NHTSA for forwarding to the manufacturer. The substitute form is provided with the goal of increasing the number of CRSs that are remedied in a recall, in line with NHTSA’s mission to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce vehicle‐related crashes. NHTSA forwards the form that are submitted to the appropriate manufacturer.
