Mission and Purpose of the National Child Passenger Safety Board
Updated March 18, 2005
The Board works collaboratively with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), who has the ultimate authority over the curriculum, and with the Certifying Body, who has ultimate authority over the certification and re-certification processes. The Board channels insight from their representative organizations to NHTSA and the Certifying Body. It is the intent of both NHTSA and the certifying body to make every effort to solicit the input of the Board and to inform the Board of changes in curriculum, policy and procedure prior to public announcement, however, neither NHTSA nor the certifying body are obligated to do so.
