Hours of Service of Drivers: DPN USA, LLC dba Matrix Medical Network; Application for Exemption

Notice of final disposition; denial of application.

FMCSA announces its decision to deny an application for an exemption from the hours-of-service (HOS) provisions submitted by DPN USA, LLC, doing business as Matrix Medical Network (Matrix). Matrix requested an exemption to allow its employee-drivers known as ``Mobile Team Leads'' to have a 16-hour window within which to operate CMVs during their work shift and to return to work with less than the mandatory 10 hours off duty. The Agency has concluded that the terms and conditions of the exemption would not achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than would be achieved by compliance with the HOS rules.
