FMCSA Releases Improvements to SMS, Updates SMS Website



May 11, 2017

SMS Improvements

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) released enhancements to the Safety Measurement System (SMS) to help large truck and bus companies have access to a more complete picture of their safety performance. These improvements are part of FMCSA’s commitment to continually align its regulations and IT systems to effectively identify large truck and bus companies with the highest safety risk and prioritize them for interventions.

For more information on SMS methodology updates and how motor carriers can improve their safety performance, visit the CSA Website, the SMS Methodology document, and the SMS Appendix A spreadsheet.

SMS Website Updated

In addition, FMCSA has updated the SMS Website with the April 28, 2017 snapshot. 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 motor carrier safety data, while logged-in 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; however, FMCSA encourages motor carriers to log in using the FMCSA Portal. If you don’t have a Portal account, register for one today. To register for a Portal account:

  1. Visit the Portal’s Account Request page, or click the registration link on the Portal login screen
  2. Select Company Employee or an Associate of a Company, and click Next
  3. Enter your U.S. DOT Number, and click Lookup
  4. Select Company Official from the Available Roles box, and click Add Role
  5. Click Next
  6. Follow the onscreen prompts to complete your registration

Once you have logged into the Portal, access your complete 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.
