The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that its Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee will hold subcommittee meetings to discuss how electronic onboard recorder manufacturers can comply with the agency’s communications standards for the transmittal of data files from EOBRs to enforcement officials and related technical issues.

FMCSA says the meetings are open to the public but are not a forum for a discussion of broader nontechnical EOBR issues. The subcommittee’s objective is to prepare a letter report and recommendations on the same for consideration by the full MCSAC, which, in turn, will provide recommendations to the agency.

The subcommittee will be comprised of several MCSAC members and certain subject matter experts invited to provide technical assistance to the full MCSAC on ideas and concepts that EOBR manufactures could use to achieve compliance.

Both meetings will be held on Monday and Tuesday, July 11-12, and Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 1 and 2, from noon on Monday to 5 p.m. ET and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. The July 11 and 12 meeting will be held at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town, 1767 King Street, Alexandria, Va., in the Washington and Jefferson Rooms on the 2nd floor. The Aug. 1 and 2 meeting will be held at a location in the Washington, D.C. area to be announced via posting on the MCSAC Website ( in advance of
the meeting.
