Grant Feeds - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 23:00
FMCSA announces that it has received an application from the American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) requesting exemptions from the Agency's hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for four new members: Celebration Fireworks, Inc., International Fireworks Mfg. Company, Inc., Johnny Rockets Display Company, and the Wald & Company All American Display Fireworks Company. The first exemption request is from the prohibition on driving commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) after the 14th hour after the driver comes on duty. APA requests this exemption to allow drivers employed by the four member companies to exclude off- duty and sleeper-berth time of any length from the calculation of the 14-hour limit. The second exemption request is from the HOS regulations that require a motor carrier to install and require each of its drivers to use an electronic logging device (ELD) to record the driver's HOS. APA requests this exemption to allow these same drivers employed by the four members to continue to use paper records of duty status (RODS) in lieu of an ELD during the designated Independence Day periods. If granted, these exemptions would terminate at the same time as the other 53 exempted APA member carriers. The original terms and conditions of the limited exemptions, that ensure a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption, will be upheld by the four new members.
