February 5th Airbag Requirement Language
As of February 5th, additional language must be added to the Bills of Sale/Invoices involving Airbags.
The DMV has announced an interim solution if the dealer could not amend their supply of Bills of Sale/Invoices by this date. The following is a statement from the DMV on what they will find acceptable:
“It is expected that all motor vehicle dealers will make reasonable efforts to ensure invoices/bills of sale issued upon the sale of a used vehicle are in compliance on the effective date (February 5, 2022). Dealers should use the updated invoices/bill of sale as soon as they receive them. Until then, they may use the supply of invoices/bills of sale they have on hand by adding the required statement in a manner that follows the provisions of supplied in our messages as closely as possible. Our primary concern is that purchasers are actually provided notice, in a reasonable manner. Enforcement of the strict adherence to these provisions will be phased in over a period of time.”
The DMV will accept this additional language being put on the Bill of Sale/Invoice using a stamp, a sticker, or typed on the document;
“The dealer named above further certifies that this vehicle complies with the inflatable restraint system requirements found in section 419-a of New York State Vehicle and Traffic
Further, the DMV does not want the additional language to be on a separate piece of paper.
