Medical Review Board (MRB) Meeting: Public Meeting

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Announcement of advisory committee public meeting.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: FMCSA announces a meeting of its Medical Review Board (MRB) on 
Tuesday and Wednesday, July 21-22, 2015. The MRB will identify factors 
the Agency should consider with regard to regulatory actions concerning 
Type I diabetes and vision standards for interstate commercial motor 
vehicle (CMV) drivers. This follows the Agency's issuance of a Notice 
of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on May 4, 2015, that would permit drivers 
with stable, well-controlled insulin-treated diabetes mellitus (ITDM) 
to be qualified to operate CMVs in interstate commerce. The MRB 
discussions would precede the Agency's consideration of a rulemaking 
concerning the vision standard. Meetings are open to the public for 
their entirety, and the public will be allowed to comment during the 
proceedings.

DATES: The meeting will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 21-22, 
2015, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time (E.T.), at the 
FMCSA National Training Center, 1310 N. Courthouse Road, Arlington, VA.

be made available in advance of the meeting at http://mrb.fmcsa.dot.gov.
