FMCSA and FRA Withdraw Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Obstructive Sleep Apnea among Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers & Rail Workers

August 4, 2017
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) withdraw the March 10, 2016, advance notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the prevalence of moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) among individuals occupying safety sensitive positions in highway and rail transportation, and its potential consequences for the safety of highway and rail transportation.
The Agencies have determined not to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking at this time and believe that current safety programs and FRA’s rulemaking addressing fatigue risk management are the appropriate avenues to address OSA.
