Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators
FMCSA announces receipt of applications from 15 individuals for an exemption from the cardiovascular standard [49 CFR 391.41(b)(4)]. These 15 individuals are requesting an exemption due to the presence of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) as a result of their underlying cardiac condition. Of the 15 individuals requesting exemptions, three individuals (Craig Bohms, James Dean, and Mark Steiner) were previously published in a January 2014 Federal Register under the docket listed above. A final decision was not issued on these three individuals because the Agency was in the process of gathering and analyzing additional data concerning ICDs and commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driving. These three individuals are being published again with 12 new individuals. If granted, an exemption would enable these individuals with ICDs to operate CMVs for up to 2 years in interstate commerce.
