ABSTRACT
This article reports on the concerns of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regarding the recall of 255,000 Chinese light truck tires. According to NHTSA Administrator Nicole Nason, the recall caused the NHTSA to think seriously about the rules surrounding safety recalls. It is stated that the need to obtain information quickly from the Chinese tire manufacturer led directly to the memorandum of understanding NHTSA signed in September 2007 with the Chinese government.
