FMCSA seeks input on changes to how it ensures compliance with driver med requirements

Updated Jan 6, 2015

medicalThe Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is accepting comment on proposed revisions to its existing Information Collection Request for driver medical qualification requirements.

The agency is collecting feedback through Feb. 17 on the data request, used to ensure drivers, carriers and states comply with medical qualification regulations.

Specifically, FMCSA seeks comment on whether the data is necessary for oversight of medical qualifications and how the collection’s quality and usefulness could be enhanced. The agency also wants to know if the ICR’s time burden on stakeholders is accurate and how this time could be minimized without decreasing the information’s quality.

FMCSA will submit a summary of responses received when it submits the ICR proposal to the White House Office of Management and Budget for clearance.
