Exemption of Commonly-Owned Motor Carriers From Equipment Identification and Receipt Requirements Applicable to Leased and Interchanged Vehicles
Notice of proposed rulemaking; request for comments.
The FHWA is proposing to modify its regulations under 49 CFR part 376 governing the lease and interchange of motor vehicle equipment by exempting commonly-owned and controlled motor carriers from the vehicle identification and exchange of receipt requirements of Sec. 376.22 and the identification of equipment requirement of Sec. 376.31. The FHWA routinely grants waivers from these requirements on an individual basis. This proposed action would eliminate the need for carriers to obtain individual waivers from the FHWA.
