Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 195 / Friday, October 7, 2011 / Notices pertaining to EOBRs published on April 5, 2010 (75 FR 17208). jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES MCSAC Subcommittee (EOBR Technical Issues) During the MCSAC’s June 20–22, 2011, public meeting, FMCSA tasked the group to review the functional specifications included in the April 5, 2010, final rule and provide suggestions to address stakeholder concerns about the technical requirements for EOBRs. A copy of the task statement and all MCSAC materials related to the assignment are posted at http:// mcsac.fmcsa.dot.gov. The Agency assigned this task to the MCSAC after making a preliminary determination that additional information would be needed to ensure that roadside inspection officials are able to obtain and/or retrieve EOBR data in order to assess drivers’ compliance with the HOS regulations. After the 2010 final rule was published, stakeholders in the CMV safety enforcement and EOBR supplier communities urged that certain requirements of the rule be revisited. Some communications methods that were presumed to be viable when the rule was developed appear less appropriate now as technology and government information technology security standards have evolved. The MCSAC established a subcommittee to explore these complex issues. The subcommittee’s meetings were announced in the Federal Register and open to all interested parties [(76 FR 38268), June 29, 2011)]. Following its October 27, 2011 session, the subcommittee will submit its report to the full MCSAC. The MCSAC will review and discuss the subcommittee’s report at MCSAC’s December 2011 public meeting and submit to the Agency its recommendations concerning functional specifications. The Agency will consider the MCSAC report in any future rulemaking to reestablish functional specifications for EOBRs. II. Meeting Participation The meetings will be open to the public for their duration. Public comments may be heard beginning at 4:30 pm on each meeting day.
