FMCSA Withdrawls SMS Enhancement Proposals
WASHINGTON, D.C. (TruckingNewsNow.com) (Source: USDOT) — On June 29, 2015 and October 5, 2016, FMCSA proposed enhancements to the Agency’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) and published a preview version of the changes. However, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) required the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to conduct a study of FMCSA’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program and the Safety Measurement System (SMS). NAS published their report titled, “Improving Motor Carrier Safety Measurement” on June 27, 2017. This notice announces that FMCSA will not complete the enhancements previously proposed and the preview is removed from the SMS website.
