The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces that its Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC) will meet to provide recommendations to the Agency concerning:

  • The review of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs).

In anticipation of the continued development of HACVs, FMCSA requests that the MCSAC provide recommendations concerning the issues FMCSA should consider to ensure that the Federal safety regulations provide appropriate standards for the safe operation of HACVs from design and development, through testing and deployment.
