II. Background On March 16, 2016, FMCSA published a notice of receipt of Federal diabetes exemption applications from 68 individuals and requested comments from the public (81 FR 14197. The public comment period closed on April 15, 2016, and 2 comments were received. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of the 68 applicants and determined that granting the exemptions to these individuals would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved by complying with the current regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3). Diabetes Mellitus and Driving Experience of the Applicants The Agency established the current requirement for diabetes in 1970 because several risk studies indicated that drivers with diabetes had a higher rate of crash involvement than the general population. The diabetes rule provides that ‘‘A person is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle if that person has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of diabetes mellitus currently requiring insulin for control’’ (49 CFR 391.41(b)(3)).
