Rule Caption: Federal safety and hazardous materials transportation regulations affecting motor carriers.

Adm. Order No.: MCTD 2-2011

Filed with Sec. of State: 5-27-2011

Certified to be Effective: 5-27-11

Notice Publication Date: 4-1-2011

Rules Amended: 740-100-0010, 740-100-0020, 740-100-0065, 740-100-0070, 740-100-0080, 740-100-0085, 740-100-0090, 740-100-0100, 740-110-0010

Subject: These rules cover (1) annual adoption of federal motor carrier safety and hazardous materials transportation regulations, (2) adoption of international standards related to driver, vehicle and hazardous materials out-of-service violations. Adoption of these regulations ensures Oregon’s motor carrier safety, hazardous materials, and driver, vehicle and hazardous materials out-of-service requirements are current with national and international standards. Amendments to the adoption of CFR 49 Part 391 regarding driver qualifications for intrastate motor carriers ensure compatibility with federal regulations and ensure Oregon maintains approximately $2.4 million of Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) funds.

North American Standard Administrative Out-of-Service Criteria

(1) The North American Standard Administrative Out-of-Service Criteria, published by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, in effect April 1, 2011, is adopted and incorporated into this rule. Inspection violations identified in the Out-of-Service Criteria may be subject to out-of-service action. Condition(s) categorized as “Out-of-Service” must not be allowed to continue in commerce until the condition(s) is/are corrected and the shipment complies with Title 49, CFR. If at the discretion of the inspector, it is less hazardous to the public to relocate the vehicle, it will be towed, transported, or escorted to a safe location only at the direction of an official authority.

North American Standard Vehicle Out-of-Service Criteria

(1) The North American Standard Vehicle Out-of-Service Criteria, published by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, in effect April 1, 2011, is adopted by and incorporated into this rule. Inspection violations identified in the Out-of-Service Criteria may be subject to one or more of the following:

(a) Out-of-Service Condition: When any motor vehicle by reason of its mechanical condition or loading, is determined to be so unsafe as to likely cause an accident or breakdown, or when such conditions would likely contribute to loss of control of the vehicle by the driver, said vehicle must be placed out-of-service. No motor carrier shall permit or require nor shall any person operate any motor vehicle declared and marked “out-of-service” until all required repairs of violations which resulted in the out-of-service condition have been completed. If, at the discretion of the inspector, it is less hazardous to the public to relocate the vehicle, it will be towed, transported, or escorted only at the direction of an official authority.

(b) Other: Violations other than out-of-service conditions detected during the inspection process will not preclude the completion of the current trip or dispatch. However, such violations must be corrected or repaired prior to redispatch.
