Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 48 / Wednesday, March 11, 2020 / Notices current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(b)) with the reason for the grant or denial, and, if granted, the specific person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision or provisions from which exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period of the exemption (up to 5 years), and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES III. Request for Exemption Teupen applied for an exemption for Mr. Martin Borutta from 49 CFR 383.23, which prescribes licensing requirements for drivers operating commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate or intrastate commerce. He holds a valid German commercial license but is unable to obtain a CDL because he not domiciled in this country. A copy of the exemption application is in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice. The exemption would allow this driver to operate CMVs in interstate or intrastate commerce to support Teupen field tests designed to better understand product requirements and ensure the safe operation of their new aerial lift design vehicle in environments in the U.S. According to Teupen, Mr. Borutta will typically drive for no more than 5 hours per day for one to two days. The test driving will typically be done on interstate highways, and driving will consist of no more than 200 miles per day. He will in all cases be accompanied by a U.S. CDL holder familiar with the routes to be traveled. Mr. Borutta holds a valid German commercial license, and as explained by Teupen in its exemption request, the requirements for that license ensure that, operating under the exemption, Mr. Borutta would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved by the current regulation. Teupen requests that the exemption cover the maximum allowable period of five years. IV. Method To Ensure an Equivalent or Greater Level of Safety Teupen notes that the process for obtaining a German commercial license is comparable to, or as effective as, the requirements of part 383, and adequately assesses the driver’s ability to operate CMVs in the U.S. The Agency granted one of Navistar’s drivers a similar exemption [April 15, 2019 (84 FR 15283)]. Since 2015, the Agency has also granted Daimler drivers similar exemptions: [December 7, 2015 (80 FR VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:37 Mar 10, 2020 Jkt 250001 76059); December 21, 2015 (80 FR 79410)]; July 12, 2016 (81 FR 45217); July 25, 2016 (81 FR 48496); August 17, 2017 (82 FR 39151); and September 10, 2018 (83 FR 45742)]. The Agency has not received any information or reports indicating there have been safety performance problems with individuals holding German commercial licenses who operate CMVs on public roads in the United States. V. Public Comments On October 24, 2019, FMCSA published notice of this application and requested public comments (84 FR 57155). One commenter stated: ‘‘Concur with request for exemption. Additionally, as this scenario is possibly encountered by military spouses without U.S. citizenship, recommend review of the regulation to consider possibilities for inclusive language while still maintaining safety standards.’’ VI. FMCSA Decision Based upon the merits of this application, including Mr. Borutta’s extensive driving experience and safety record, FMCSA has concluded that the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved absent such exemption, in accordance with § 381.305(a). The requirements for a German-issued commercial license ensure that drivers meet or exceed the same level of safety as if these drivers had obtained a U.S. CDL. Mr. Borutta is familiar with the operation of CMVs and will be accompanied at all times by a driver who holds a U.S. CDL and is familiar with the routes to be traveled. FMCSA has determined that the process for obtaining a commercial license in Germany is comparable to that for obtaining a CDL issued by one of the States and adequately assesses the driver’s ability to operate CMVs safely in the United States. VII. Terms and Conditions for the Exemption FMCSA grants Teupen driver Martin Borutta an exemption from the CDL requirement in 49 CFR 383.23 to allow him to drive CMVs in this country without a State-issued CDL, subject to the following terms and conditions: (1) The driver and carrier must comply will all other applicable provisions of the FMCSRs (49 CFR parts 350–399); (2) the driver must be in possession of the exemption document and a valid German commercial license; PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14289 (3) the driver must be employed by and operate the CMV within the scope of their duties for Teupen; (4) at all times while operating a CMV under this exemption, the driver must be accompanied by a holder of a U.S. CDL who is familiar with the routes traveled; (5) Teupen must notify FMCSA in writing within 5 business days of any accident, as defined in 49 CFR 390.5, involving this driver; and (6) Teupen must notify FMCSA in writing if this driver is convicted of a disqualifying offense under § 383.51 or § 391.15 of the FMCSRs. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e), the exemption will be valid for 5 years unless revoked earlier by the FMCSA. The exemption will be revoked if: (1) Mr. Borutta fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the exemption; (2) the exemption results in a lower level of safety than was maintained before it was granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would be inconsistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136. VIII. Preemption Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 31315(d), as implemented by 49 CFR 381.600, during the period this exemption is in effect, no State shall enforce any law or regulation applicable to interstate or intrastate commerce that conflicts with or is inconsistent with this exemption with respect to a firm or person operating under the exemption.

II. Legal Basis

    FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b) to grant exemptions 
from certain parts of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations 
(FMCSRs). FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the 
Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the 
public an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the 
application, including any safety analyses that have been conducted. 
The Agency must also provide an opportunity for public comment on the 
request.
    The Agency reviews safety analyses and public comments submitted, 
and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a 
level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be 
achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of 
the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 
381.315(b)) with the reasons for denying or granting the application 
and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving 
the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is 
granted. The notice must also specify the effective period and explain 
the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed 
(49 CFR 381.300(b)).

II. Background

Current Regulations

    Generally, individuals may not drive a property-carrying CMV more 
than 11 hours during a work shift, following 10 consecutive hours off 
duty. Under the current regulations all driving must be completed 
within 14 hours of the beginning of the work shift. (See 49 CFR 395.3.)
    Drivers who are required to prepare and maintain records of duty 
status (RODS) to document their hours of service must generally use 
electronic logging devices (ELDs). (See 49 CFR 395.8.)

SBTC Exemption Application

    SBTC requests that drivers of property-carrying CMVs, when 
accompanied by any domestic animal, be exempt from the requirement to 
use ELDs for their RODS (49 CFR 395.8). These drivers would prepare and 
maintain paper RODS as an alternative.
    SBTC also requests that drivers of property-carrying vehicles 
accompanied by any domestic animal be granted an exemption from 49 CFR 
395.3(a)(2) and (3)(i), allowing them to drive up to 13 hours during a 
work shift, following 10 consecutive hours off-duty. The exemption 
would allow them a 16-hour driving window within which to use the 13 
hours of driving time. A copy of the exemption application has been 
placed in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice.

III. Request for Comments

    In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b), FMCSA requests public 
comment from all interested persons on SBTC's application for an 
exemption. All comments received before the close of business on the 
comment closing date indicated at the beginning of this notice

[[Page 14291]]

will be considered and will be available for examination in the docket 
at the location listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. 
Comments received after the comment closing date will be filed in the

addition to late comments, FMCSA will also continue to file, in the 
public docket, relevant information that becomes available after the 
comment closing date. Interested persons should continue to examine the 
public docket for new material.
