FMCSA Updates SMS Website
FMCSA has updated the CSA SMS Website with the March 29, 2019 results.
With this release, motor carriers logged into SMS will have access to a new online interface to upload investigation documents – the Carrier Dashboard. This interface allows carriers streamlined access to better understand SMS results, learn how to improve, or go straight into their data. Carriers with open investigations can track their investigation progress online, check due dates of requested documents, or securely upload required documents—all in one place.
Motor carriers participating in FMCSA's Crash Preventability Demonstration Program will continue to see the Agency's final determinations on SMS for crashes reviewed as part of the program. Logged-in carriers and enforcement users with crashes determined to be Not Preventable as part of the program can view measures and percentiles calculated with and without those crashes.
