exceeds the requirements of Handbook 44. However, be aware that a state or local jurisdictions, other than California, may not accept the operation of a device with a smaller measurement value than speci fi ed in Handbook 44. b. The speci fi cation related to the device’s ability to indicate the maximum rate of energy transfer. Since the California requirements are more strict than those in the Handbook 44 EVSE Code, NTEP views this as complying with the EVSE Code published in the Handbook. Single Draft – Weigh-in-Motion Vehicle Scales : At the 2021 NCWM Annual Meeting, the membership adopted changes to recognize the in-motion weighing of highway vehicles in commercial applications. Without getting into all the technical details, the new standards permit the weighing of vehicles while the entire vehicle is moving across the scale platform. What must be noted is that the performance/accuracy of this dynamic weighment is identical to the same vehicle being weighed statically. The NTEP Weighing/Belt-Conveyor Sector worked hard during their August 2021 Meeting to fi nalize the changes to the Publication 14 Checklist. This e ff ort has permitted NTEP to begin accepting applications for the evaluation of this new device type on January 21, 2021. If you have questions related to this information or the NTEP application or evaluation process please contact Mike Manheim at mike.manheim@ncwm.com or Darrell Flocken at darrell. fl ocken@ncwm.com.

Before you submit your application, there are a few things that you should recognize. For instance: 1. NTEP will not accept applications for Electric Vehicle Fueling Systems that charge using Direct Current (DC) voltage until there are nationally recognized standards and testing equipment for the certi fi cation of those systems. 2. The Handbook 44 Electric Vehicle Fueling System Code is a “Tentative” code. Therefore, NTEP Certi fi cates of Conformance will have a “Provisional” or “P” Status. When NCWM removes the tentative status of the code, NTEP will assess whether there have been changes to the code since your Certi fi cate was issued that will require additional evaluation of your system before removing the provisional status of the Certi fi cate. 3. NTEP will accept test data for evaluations performed by the California Type Approval Laboratory before and after the date of this letter. However, as of this letter, the California Code and the Handbook 44 Code have a few di ff erences related to device requirements. These di ff erences are: a. The speci fi cations for the Value of the Smallest Unit of Measure. The California Code requires this value to be either 0.0005MJ or 0.0001 kWh, depending on the device’s unit of measurement. The speci fi cation in Handbook 44 requires this value to be either 0.005 MJ or 0.001 kWh, depending on the device’s unit of measurement. To address this discrepancy, NTEP will note on the Certi fi cate of Conformance that the device

Laws and Regulations Committee Interim Summary John McGuire (NJ), Committee Chair

The 2022 Laws and Regulations (L&R) Committee Interim Agenda consisted of 27 items. Item Blocks are made up of items considered related in subject matter by which the individual items are companion to each other. During open hearings comments were heard for items contained in blocks as part of testimony for the block as a whole. Presentations and written testimony submitted to the committee are available on the NCWM website. The Fuels and Lubricants Subcommittee and the Packaging and Labeling Subcommittee both met at the Interim Meeting and reported to the L&R Committee. The L&R Committee designated the status for each of the agenda items as follows:
