Hours of Service of Drivers; Parts and Accessories: Application for Exemptions Renewal for Cleveland-Cliffs Steel, LLC, Formerly Known as ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor, LLC
FMCSA renews the exemption granted Cleveland-Cliffs Steel, LLC (Cliffs), formerly ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor, LLC, from certain hours-of-service (HOS) and cargo securement rules and requests public comment on the renewal. The renewal of the exemption allows Cliffs' employee-drivers with commercial driver's licenses (CDLs), who transport steel coils a fraction of a mile between their production and shipping locations on public roads, to continue to work up to 16 hours per day, and to operate with less than 10 consecutive hours off duty between work shifts. The renewal of the exemption also allows Cliffs to use metal coil carriers that do not meet the ``heavy hauler trailer'' definition, restrictions on the height of rear side marker lamps, tire loading restrictions, and the commodity-specific cargo securement requirements for metal coils. The Agency has concluded that granting the request for a renewal of the exemption will likely maintain a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety achieved through compliance with the specific regulatory requirements. The Agency requests comments on the Cliff's request for a renewal of the exemption.
