The purpose of this meeting is to consider one or more new ARAC tasks. Improvement of regulations is a continuous focus for the Department.

Through two new Executive Orders, President Trump directed agencies to further scrutinize its regulations. On January 30, 2017, President Trump signed Executive Order 13771 titled ‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs (EO).’’ Under Section 2a of that Executive Order, unless prohibited by law, whenever an executive department or agency publicly proposes for notice and comment or otherwise promulgates a new regulation, it shall identify at least two existing regulations to be repealed. In addition, on February 24, 2017, President Trump signed Executive Order 13777 titled ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.’’ Under this Executive Order, each agency is required to establish a Regulatory Reform Task Force (RRTF) to evaluate existing regulations, and make recommendations for their repeal, replacement, or modification. As part of this process, the Department is directed to seek input/assistance from entities significantly affected by its regulations. Accordingly, the agenda for this ARAC meeting will be to task ARAC to consider (1) recommendations on existing regulations that are good candidates for repeal, replacement, or modification and (2) recommendations on regulatory action identified in FAA’s Regulatory Agenda. The ARAC will also consider the new task Flight Test Harmonization Working Group- Transport Airplane Performance and Handling Characteristics, Phase 3 that was on the agenda for the March 16, 2017, ARAC meeting. At that meeting, all discussions on new tasks were postponed to later ARAC meetings. Attendance is open to the interested public but limited to the space available.

ACTION: Notice of denials of exemption applications. AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to deny applications from three individuals seeking exemptions from the Federal cardiovascular standard applicable to interstate truck and bus drivers and discusses the reasons for the denials. The Agency reviewed the medical information of each the individuals who applied for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) exemption. Based on a review of the applications and following an opportunity for public comment, FMCSA has concluded that the three individuals in the notice did not demonstrate they could achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety that would be obtained by complying with the regulation. SUMMARY: Denial letters were sent to each of the individuals listed in this notice on December 7, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Christine A.

The FMCSA provides medical advisory criteria as recommendations for use by medical examiners in determining whether drivers with certain medical conditions and drivers who have undergone certain procedures and/or treatments should be certified to operate CMVs in interstate commerce in accordance with the various physical qualification standards in 49 CFR part 391, subpart E. The advisory criteria are currently set out in Appendix A to 49 CFR part 391. The advisory criteria for section 391.41(b)(4) provide, in part, that: The term ‘‘has no current clinical diagnosis of’’ is specifically designed to encompass: ‘‘a clinical diagnosis of’’ (1) a current cardiovascular condition, or (2) a cardiovascular condition which has not fully stabilized regardless of the time limit. The term ‘‘known to be accompanied by’’ is designed to include a clinical diagnosis of a cardiovascular disease (1) which is accompanied by symptoms of syncope, dyspnea, collapse or congestive cardiac failure; and/or (2) which is likely to cause syncope, dyspnea, collapse, or congestive cardiac failure.
