FMCSA adopts final rule for safety regs

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has adopted a final rule that establishes procedures for applicants to request waivers and apply for exemptions from federal safety regulations and CDL requirements, and procedures to propose and manage pilot programs.

Additionally the final rule establishes guidelines for how FMCSA will review, grant, or deny requests for waivers, applications for exemptions, and proposals for pilot programs. It also sets the requirements for publishing notice of exemption applications or proposals for pilot programs through the Federal Register.
