SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 CFR 381.315(a), FMCSA must publish a notice of each 
exemption request in the Federal Register. The Agency must provide the 
public with 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 the safety analyses and the public comments 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)). If the Agency denies the request, it must state the reason 
for doing so. If the decision is to grant the exemption, the notice 
must specify the person or class of persons receiving the exemption and 
the regulatory provision or provisions from which an exemption is 
granted. The notice must 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 381.315(c) and 49 CFR 381.300(b)).

K & L Application for Exemption

    Section 393.120(c) of the FMCSRs requires metal coils that weigh 
more than 5,000 pounds (either individually or grouped together) and 
transported with eyes crosswise to be secured using (1) a means (e.g., 
timbers, chocks or wedges, a cradle, etc.) to prevent the coil from 
rolling and to support the coil off the deck, (2) at least one tiedown 
through its eye restricting against forward motion, and (3) at least 
one tiedown through its eye restricting against rearward motion. 
Attaching tiedowns diagonally through the eye of a coil to form an X-
pattern when viewed from above the vehicle is prohibited. K & L has 
applied for an exemption from 49 CFR 393.120(c) to allow the use of an 
alternative securement system consisting of (1) a specialized metal 
carrier permanently affixed to the flatbed trailer designed to secure 
the coil and prevent it from rolling, and (2) a single, two-ply, nylon-
Kevlar tie down strap routed through the eye of the coil that secures 
the coil to the coil carrier.
