The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently released a redesigned Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) Website. The website builds on FMCSA’s commitment to safety by making it easier for motor carriers and drivers to access and understand important resources, so everyone can learn more about safety compliance and carriers have the tools they need to improve their safety performance.
The redesigned website provides carriers with quick access to resources and plain-language answers to commonly asked questions, such as what to do next after receiving a warning letter. The new site also features an enhanced Help Center and an improved search functionality that gives visitors more ways to browse materials, including by topic, keyword, month, and page.
Visit the redesigned CSA Website today. If you have questions, please contact FMCSA’s CSA InfoLine Team by phone at (877) 254-5365 or by email.
In addition, the CSA Safety Measurement System (SMS) Website has been updated with the December 30, 2016 snapshot. Please note: as FMCSA continues to make system improvements, some State inspection and crash data is in the process of being uploaded and is currently unavailable. FMCSA is working with individual States to complete the data upload process and will provide additional updates as they become available. Motor carriers can check their own safety assessments now.
Additional SMS results are available to enforcement users and motor carriers that are logged into the SMS. Logged-in enforcement users can view all carrier safety data, while logged-in motor carriers can only view their own data. Currently, the SMS allows motor carrier login via U.S. DOT Number and U.S. DOT Number PIN. In the coming months, access by U.S. DOT Number and U.S. DOT Number PIN will be disabled on SMS and motor carriers will need to log in using the FMCSA Portal. To prepare for this transition, register for a Portal account today.
To register for a Portal account:
Once you have logged into the Portal, access your safety profile on the SMS Website by clicking on the A&I (SMS) link in the Available FMCSA Systems box in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
