Effective January 19, 2018 (83 FR 2868) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) granted a limited 3-month waiver from the Federal hours-of-service (HOS) requirements for electronic logging devices (ELDs) to motor carriers and drivers operating property-carrying commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) that are rented for a period not exceeding 30 days. The Agency takes this action in response to a waiver request from the Truck Renting and Leasing Association, Inc. (TRALA). The Agency determined that granting this waiver is in the public interest and will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to the level that would be achieved absent the waiver, based on the terms and conditions imposed. TRALA requested previous exemptions concerning the HOS requirements and received limited exceptions (see 82 FR 14789 and 82 FR 47306) and feel this additional 3-month waiver would allow rental companies and their customers “critical additional time to develop compliance strategies” to address “unique issues relating to the use of ELDs in short-term rental vehicles” and also allow time for TRALA to consider whether to petition for reconsideration of FMCSA’s action on its exemption . This waiver is effective January 19, 2018, through April 19, 2018.
