DOT Regulatory Guidance

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced on Feb. 5 that it is reviewing its existing guidance documents to evaluate their continued necessity and determine whether they need to be updated or revised.

Notice

This is similar to the USDOT review of its existing regulations that took place late in 2017.

As part of this upcoming review, the Department invites the public to identify and provide input on any existing guidance documents that are good candidates for repeal, replacement, or modification across all the modal agencies that it covers (FMCSA, FTA, FHWA, etc.).

A web page has been established for each agency to list its current significant guidance documents.
