(For Initial and Renewal Applications)
As a motor carrier applying for either a new or renewed Hazardous Materials Safety Permit (HMSP), it is important that the information in your Company Safety Profile correctly reflects your performance. This is especially critical in the determination of your company's Driver, Vehicle and Hazardous Materials Out-of-Service (OOS) inspection rates. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recommends that you carefully review your company's information for accuracy, prior to submitting your application, and pay particular attention to your Vehicle OOS rate to ensure that Hazardous Materials OOS inspections are not being counted in both the Hazardous Materials and Vehicle OOS calculations. Should you find information in your Company Safety Profile that you feel is in error and impacts your ability to obtain a HMSP, please contact the Hazardous Materials Division at FMCSA for assistance in resolving your issues at 202-385-2400.
