advice to FMCSA on ``medical standards for operators of commercial 
motor vehicles that will ensure that the physical condition of 
operators of commercial motor vehicles is adequate to enable them to 
operate the vehicles safely.'' The MRB operates in accordance with FACA 
under the terms of the MRB charter, filed November 25, 2019.

the MRB with providing recommendations about how to best assist medical 
examiners on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners 
(National Registry) and the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers who 
use these CPAPs on identifying reliable sources of information 
concerning options for drivers with machines covered by the recall.
