Washington – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has announced a detailed plan to update its Safety Measurement System website, which provides ratings of truck and bus carriers.

The revised website, which is scheduled to debut Aug. 2, has been in the works since November, when FMCSA published proposed changes in the Federal Register and solicited public comments.

The revamped website will not affect any methodology or carrier’s safety ratings, FMCSA said. It will contain at least 11 updates, including a “Take a Tour” segment outlining the site’s features, new ways to download safety data on motor carriers, and information about motor carriers’ enforcement case histories and associated fines.

FMCSA has scheduled three webinars in mid-August to help people understand the changes to the Safety Measurement System. Those interested may register through FMCSA’s National Training Center.
