NRMCA’s updated Compliance Guide for the Federal Drivers' Hours of Service (HOS) addresses key aspects of new Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration rules, especially in light of ready mixed producer exemptions from 30-minute break and driver logging requirement extension to 14 hours.

Over the last decade, NRMCA Compliance and Operations staff reports, HOS regulations have been subject to numerous court actions and Congressional meddling. The 2017 HOS Guide explains fundamentals of the law; how the industry is impacted; what ready mixed producers and their drivers need to adopt or avoid to be compliant; and, a new mixer driver compliance scenario for electronic logging devices. Copies can be ordered here. Additional information on HOS and related FMCSA rules affecting mixer truck fleets can be directed to NRMCA Vice President, Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Kevin Walgenbach, [email protected].
