Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance; Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR)

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
 
49 CFR Parts 392 and 396
 
[Docket No. FMCSA-2012-0336]
 
RIN 2126-AB46
 
Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance; Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR)
 
AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.
 
ACTION: Final Rule.
 
SUMMARY: FMCSA rescinds the requirement that commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers operating in interstate commerce, except drivers of passenger-carrying CMVs, submit, and motor carriers retain, DVIRs when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any vehicle defects or deficiencies. This rule also harmonizes the pre- and post-trip inspection lists. It responds in part to the President’s January 2011 Regulatory Review and Reform initiative, removing a significant information collection burden without adversely impacting safety. The Agency also makes a technical change to section 396.11 to eliminate redundant language.
