FMVSS 136: ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR HEAVY VEHICLES

Effective August 1, 2019, FMVSS 136 regulations will go into effect which require Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems on all International® 4×2, 6×2, 6×4 and 8×6 tridem tractor configurations with Air Brake Systems. This expands on the ESC regulation in effect as of August 1, 2017 which required 6×4 tractors with Air Brake Systems and 14,600-lb or less front GAWR and 45,000-lb or less rear GAWR to have ESC systems.
Vehicles built on or after August 1, 2019 must be FMVSS 136 compliant. Orders with non-compliant configurations must be built prior to the August 1, 2019 date, or converted to a suitable compliant ESC configuration.

A great safety feature designed to prevent roll overs in tight turns as well as loss of control on slippery surfaces this is a great standard for our industry.
