FMCSA moves CSA 2010 launch to November

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recently announced a new date for the national launch of its commercial motor vehicle safety enforcement program.

Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 was expected to launch in July, but now is slated to begin Nov. 30. The agency published a withdrawal notice (.pdf file) in the April 9 Federal Register, requesting comments by Sept. 30 on plans to replace its Motor Carrier Safety Status Measurement System with an improved Carrier Safety Measurement System. According to the notice, individual motor carriers can review their safety performance data by the CSA 2010 Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories on a Data Preview Website from April 12 to Nov. 30.

SafeStat is the automated algorithm currently used by FMCSA to identify high-risk motor carriers for onsite compliance review. The agency is implementing a new SMS algorithm and compliance and enforcement program to better identify high-risk motor carriers, strengthen enforcement efforts and improve safety performance data.
