FMCSA Proposes Incorporating New CVSA OOS Handbook
On October 02, 2019 (84 FR 52432), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the federal register proposing to amend its Hazardous Materials Safety Permits regulations in 49 CFR Part 385 to incorporate by reference the updated Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) handbook. The Out-of-Service Criteria provide enforcement personnel nationwide, including FMCSA’s State partners, with uniform enforcement tolerances for roadside inspections. Currently, the regulations reference the April 1, 2018, edition of the handbook. Through this document, FMCSA proposes to incorporate by reference the April 1, 2019, edition. Comments on this document must be received on or before November 1, 2019.
