Back in March, FMCSA issued its first time ever, Federal Hours-Of-Service waiver.

FMCSA announced that it extended its waiver for expiring commercial driver’s licenses until Sept. 30. The waiver was set to end June 30.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has issued another extension and modification of the hours of service relief for COVID-19 deliveries. This extension of Emergency Declaration No. 2020-002 is effective at 12:00am September 14, 2020 and remains in effect until 11:59pm December 31st, 2020.
The extension provides regulatory relief for commercial motor vehicle operations providing direct assistance in support of emergency relief efforts related to COVID-19 and is limited to transportation of:
• “Direct assistance does not include routine commercial deliveries, including mixed loads with a nominal quantity of qualifying emergency relief added to obtain the benefits of this emergency declaration,”
• “FMCSA has concluded that there is no longer a need for emergency relief with respect to the other categories of supplies, equipment and persons covered by the May 13 extension and expansion of Emergency Declaration No. 2020-02, and those categories are therefore no longer covered.”
FMCSA warns, this declaration does not give Motor Carriers the ability to haul a load when they say they’re tired. A driver who needs immediate rest must be given at-least 10 hours of continuous rest before they can return to service.
FMCSA grants a three-month waiver from certain pre-employment testing requirements applicable to employers of drivers subject to 49 CFR part 382. This action responds to the President’s Executive Order No. 13924, Regulatory Relief to Support Economic Recovery, issued on May 19, 2020, related to the economic consequences of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency.
In granting the waiver, FMCSA extends, from 30 to 90 days, the period under which drivers would qualify for the pre-employment testing exemption under 49 CFR 382.301(b). Allowing employers to forego pre-employment testing for select new hires and drivers with temporary absences—and who were in a testing program within the previous 90 days—provides relief from the administrative and cost burdens associated with administering tests and returning drivers to the workforce.
This waiver is effective June 5, 2020, and ends on September 30, 2020.
Are you Receiving a Standard Carrier Alpha Code

Do you need a SCAC Code?
What is a SCAC Code? Do you Qualify?
The Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC) is a system that assigns unique two-to-four letter codes to transportation companies for identification purposes. The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) developed the SCAC identification codes in the late 1960s to facilitate computerization in the transportation industry. It is for Customs entry, when doing business with many shippers, on rate tariffs filed with regulatory agencies, government bills of lading and on bids for government traffic.
Questioning why You received a SCAC Code Renewal Notice?
If it is from the National Motor Freight Traffic Association, it is valid. Be careful, if it is not, it could be a SCAM! It is possible that a SCAC code was gotten at one-point in time last year, either because of crossing the border or maybe someone in the company applied for it not knowing that they did not really need it.
~The more you know~
Not all motor carriers are required to possess a SCAC code, and the DOT, or any other government agency, will not shut down or fine a carrier simply because the motor carrier is not in possession of a SCAC code. There are no regulations requiring compliance with SCAC documentation and registration.
