SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 20, 2010, FMCSA published a direct final rule entitled “Compliance with Interstate Motor Carrier Noise Emission Standards: Exhaust Systems” in the Federal Register (75 FR 57191). The direct final rule amends 49 CFR part 325 by removing turbochargers from the list of equipment considered to be noise dissipative devices. FMCSA used the direct final rule procedures (75 FR 29915, May 28, 2010) because it was a routine and non-controversial amendment, and the Agency did not expect any adverse comments. The direct final rule advised the public that unless a written adverse comment, or a written notice of intent to submit such an adverse comment, was received by October 20, 2010, the Agency would provide notice confirming the effective date. Because FMCSA did not receive any comments to the docket by October 20, 2010, the direct final rule will become effective November 19, 2010.
