Changes To FMCSA Hours Of Service Rule Begins On September 29

On June 1, 2020, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published the Hours of Service final rule that revises the HOS regulations in 49 CFR Part 395, which prescribe driving limits for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.

The rule includes four changes designed to offer drivers greater flexibility, while maintaining the highest safety standards on our Nation’s roads, and was developed based on extensive public and industry input.

Drivers and carriers must operate under the hours of service (HOS) final rule starting on September 29, 2020, and not before.

Earlier this month, the PPA hosted a webinar with FMCSA to recap the rule change and how it will benefit petroleum marketers. The presentation slides and fact sheet from the webinar can be found below.
