FMCSA Implements New Adjudicated Citation Policy

     In late August, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) began to require states to reflect the results of adjudicated citations related to roadside inspection violation data in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). This new policy impacts how violations are used and displayed in the Safety Measurement System (SMS) and Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP). The changes are part of the Agency’s continued effort to improve the quality and uniformity of violation data to sharpen the focus on unsafe carriers and drivers.

    FMCSA originally published the proposed changes in a Federal Register Notice on December 2, 2013, followed by a second Federal Register Notice on June 5, 2014. The Agency considered more than 100 public comments – from states, motor carriers, drivers and industry associations – to that initial notice and solicited feedback from the field and state partners. Comments indicated that the Agency’s approach has a widespread support within the commercial motor vehicle industry.
