FMCSA seeks hours paperwork comments

| June 06, 2011

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is seeking public comment on its revised estimate of the paperwork burden of the hours of service rules.

To comment, go to www.regulations.gov; the docket number is FMCSA-2011-0065.

FMCSA also has requested approval by the Office of Management and Budget to revise and extend an existing request to collection information on HOS.

The agency, effective June 4, 2010, authorized the use of electronic onboard recorders to create driver records-of-duty status to document HOS. The revised information request estimates the paperwork burden of motor carriers voluntarily using EOBRs.

The currently approved estimate is 181.28 million hours, as approved by OMB on Aug. 20, 2010; the expiration date of this information collection is Aug. 31. In the newly revised request, FMCSA proposes to reduce the paperwork burden by about 9.20 million burden hours, or by 5 percent, to 172.08 million hours.
