PO 00000 Frm 00122 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 As stated in the previous notice, FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these exemptions 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). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding diabetes found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person: Has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of diabetes mellitus currently requiring insulin for control. III. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received one comment in this preceding. An anonymous commenter stated they believe the rule preventing drivers with ITDM operating CMVs in interstate commerce should be removed and the medical examiners should determine whether a driver is fit to operate a CMV in interstate commerce.

Background Under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA may grant an exemption from the FMCSRs for a five-year period if it finds ‘‘such exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.’’ The statute also allows the Agency to renew exemptions at the end of the five-year period. FMCSA grants exemptions from the FMCSRs for a twoyear period to align with the maximum duration of a driver’s medical certification. PO 00000 Frm 00124 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The 91 individuals listed in this notice have requested an exemption from the hearing requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(11). Accordingly, the Agency will evaluate the qualifications of each applicant to determine whether granting the exemption will achieve the required level of safety mandated by statute. The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding hearing found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(11) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person: First perceives a forced whispered voice in the better ear at not less than 5 feet with or without the use of a hearing aid or, if tested by use of an audiometric device, does not have an average hearing loss in the better ear greater than 40 decibels at 500 Hz, 1,000 Hz, and 2,000 Hz with or without a hearing aid when the audiometric device is calibrated to American National Standard (formerly ASA Standard) Z24.5—1951. This standard was adopted in 1970 and was revised in 1971 to allow drivers to be qualified under this standard while wearing a hearing aid, 35 FR 6458, 6463 (April 22, 1970) and 36 FR 12857 (July 3, 1971). On February 1, 2013, FMCSA announced in a Notice of Final Disposition titled, Qualification of Drivers; Application for Exemptions; National Association of the Deaf, (78 FR 7479), its decision to grant requests from 40 individuals for exemptions from the Agency’s physical qualification standard concerning hearing for interstate CMV drivers. Since the February 1, 2013 notice, the Agency has published additional notices granting requests from hard of hearing and deaf individuals for exemptions from the Agency’s physical qualification standard concerning hearing for interstate CMV drivers.

II. Background

    On July 27, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision 
to renew exemptions for 127 individuals from the insulin-treated 
diabetes mellitus prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) to operate a CMV 
in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 FR 
35029). The public comment period ended on August 28, 2017, and one 
comment was received.
    As stated in the previous notice, FMCSA has evaluated the 
eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these 
exemptions 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).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding diabetes 
found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) states that a person is physically 
qualified to drive a CMV if that person:

    Has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of 
diabetes mellitus currently requiring insulin for control.

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received one comment in this preceding. An anonymous 
commenter stated they believe the rule preventing drivers with ITDM 
operating CMVs in interstate commerce should be removed and the medical 
examiners should determine whether a driver is fit to operate a CMV in 
interstate commerce. On May 4, 2015, FMCSA published a Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) (80 FR 25260) proposing changes to the 
Diabetes standard and requesting comments from the public. FMCSA is 
currently evaluating comments received and drafting a Final Rule. 
Information related to this action can be found in the Docket at FMCSA-
2005-23151.

IV. Conclusion

    Based upon its evaluation of the 127 renewal exemption applications 
and comments received, FMCSA announces its' decision to exempt the 
following drivers from the rule prohibiting drivers with ITDM from 
driving CMVs in interstate commerce in 49 CFR 391.64(3):
    As of August 1, 2017, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 
31315, the following 35 individuals have satisfied the renewal 
conditions for obtaining an exemption from the rule prohibiting drivers
