Legal Basis FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to grant exemptions from certain parts of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. 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 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)) 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)). III. Background The CDL requirements for drivers operating CMVs in interstate or intrastate commerce are set forth in 49 CFR part 383. The nine Daimler drivers, however, are citizens of Germany, and therefore cannot apply for a CDL in any of the States. The rules in 49 CFR part 382, subpart G require motor carriers to register all employees subject to controlled substance and alcohol testing, including CDL holders, in the DAC. The DAC does not have the capability to register German commercial license holders. Daimler therefore requests both a CDL and a DAC exemption for the following nine drivers who are also development engineers: Manfred Wilhelm Guggolz, E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1 55574 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 174 / Tuesday, September 8, 2020 / Notices Thorsten Sascha Kugel, Steffen Keppeler, Lars Nock, Jorg Wolfgang Spielvogel, Frank-Michael Kircher, Jochen Hans Horwath, Dominik Cammerer, and Carsten Schewe.

II. Legal Basis

    FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to grant 
exemptions from certain parts of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety 
Regulations. 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 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)) 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)).

III. Background

    The CDL requirements for drivers operating CMVs in interstate or 
intrastate commerce are set forth in 49 CFR part 383. The nine Daimler 
drivers, however, are citizens of Germany, and therefore cannot apply 
for a CDL in any of the States. The rules in 49 CFR part 382, subpart G 
require motor carriers to register all employees subject to controlled 
substance and alcohol testing, including CDL holders, in the DAC. The 
DAC does not have the capability to register German commercial license 
holders. Daimler therefore requests both a CDL and a DAC exemption for 
the following nine drivers who are also development engineers: Manfred 
Wilhelm Guggolz,

Spielvogel, Frank-Michael Kircher, Jochen Hans Horwath, Dominik 
Cammerer, and Carsten Schewe. A copy of Daimler's application for 
exemption is included in the docket for this notice.

IV. Request for Comments

    In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(6), FMCSA requests public 
comment from all interested persons on Daimler's exemption application. 
All comments received before the close of business on the comment 
closing date indicated at the beginning of this notice will be

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.
