Chronology :

Collins had a meeting April 8, 2020, to determine the decal was not in compliance with FMVSS217. All units in production were inspected and will be corrected before shipping.

Collins subsequently petitioned NHTSA on April 30, 2020, for a decision that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. Collins received the denial of this petition on August 8, 2022.
