Removal of Obsolete and Redundant Regulations and Appendices
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
The FHWA is proposing to remove obsolete and redundant regulations and appendices from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). In addition, the FHWA is proposing minor technical changes in an effort to keep the FMCSRs current. The removal of obsolete and redundant regulations and appendices is one of the first actions taken by the FHWA following the Agency's Zero Base Regulatory Review public outreach sessions. The deletion of these regulations should result in the reduction of the paperwork burden on the industry without any reduction in safety benefits.
