FMCSA denies an application for exemption

FMCSA denies an application for exemption from the electronic logging device mandate for CMV drivers traveling with domestic animals in interstate commerce. The agency explains the application does not meet the application standards and the applicant failed to

  • Identify someone that would be responsible for the use or operation of the CMVs under the exemption 
  • Estimate of the number of drivers and CMVs that would operate under the terms of the exemption 
  • Propose countermeasures to ensure an equivalent or greater level of safety than would be achieved under compliance with the current rules
