New Entrant Safety Assurance Process: Implementation of Section 210(b) of the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests comment on the methods the Agency should consider implementing to provide further assurance that a new applicant carrier is knowledgeable about the applicable safety requirements before being granted New Entrant authority. We are considering whether to implement a proficiency examination as part of our revised New Entrant Safety Assurance Process and seek information concerning issues that should be considered in the development and use of such an examination. In addition, the Agency requests comments on other alternatives to a proficiency examination to complement the assurances already in place that new entrant carriers are knowledgeable about applicable safety requirements. This notice responds to issues raised by Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates) regarding new entrant applicant knowledgeability.
Agency Information Collection Activities; Extension of a Currently-Approved Information Collection Request: Training Certification for Entry-Level Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Operators
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval its request to extend a currently-approved information collection request (ICR) entitled, ``Training Certification for Entry-level CMV Operators,'' that relates to the training requirements for drivers applying for a commercial driver's license (CDL). There is no change from the burden estimate approved by OMB for this ICR on March 11, 2008. On May 28, 2009, FMCSA published a Federal Register notice (74 FR 25607) allowing for a 60-day comment period on the extension of this ICR. The Agency did not receive any comments in response to this notice.
