DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AC56 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; General Amendments 

This proposed rulemaking would ensure consistency between the FMCSA requirements in 49 CFR part 393 and the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) National Safety Code (NSC) 10 cargo securement requirements. FMCSA will amend 49 CFR 393.118 to allow loads of three or more tiers of dressed lumber, with an overall height of less than 6 feet, to be secured with tiedowns over the top of the load but without a tiedown over one of the middle tiers as currently required. Additionally, the Agency will amend 49 CFR part 393 to add specificity to violations that are currently grouped under a single regulation at 49 CFR 396.3(a)(1), which states that commercial motor vehicle 'parts and accessories shall be in safe and proper operating condition at all times,' and make conforming changes to other regulations necessary.
