These information collection requirements are minimal and are used to ensure that motor carriers have adequate documentation of the systematic inspection, repair and maintenance programs required by 49 CFR part 393. This revision is due to a Final Rule entitled,"Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance; Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR)." The final rule will eliminate the requirement that commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers operating in interstate commerce, except drivers of passenger-carrying CMVs, submit, and motor carriers retain, DVIRs when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any vehicle defects or deficiencies. This rule also harmonizes the pre- and post-trip inspection lists.

This program change decrease of 46,669,294 estimated annual burden hours (58,093,888 currently approved estimated annual burden hours - 11,424,594 proposed estimated annual burden hours) is due to the elimination of regulatory requirements that commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers operating in interstate commerce, except drivers of passenger-carrying CMVs, submit, and motor carriers retain, DVIRs when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any vehicle defects or deficiencies. This proposal was set forth in the August 7, 2013 NPRM on driver inspection, maintenance and repair of CMVs, and is adopted in the final rule of December 18, 2014. In addition, this final rule also harmonizes the pre- and post-trip inspection lists. The current estimate appearing in ROCIS is 690,843 – this was an estimate of the number of respondents, not the number of responses, and had not been updated for several approval cycles. Recently, FMCSA has revised its procedures for estimating the active number of interstate motor carriers because many carriers hold multiple registrations and/or USDOT numbers.
