FMCSA Sets Schedule for Safety Fitness Determination - Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

On January 21, 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to update its present Safety Fitness Determination (SFD) methodology and enhance the Agency’s ability to identify non-compliant motor carriers.   The NPRM public comment period ended June 23, 2016.  

In order to thoroughly evaluate and possibly incorporate comments received, and to allow the Agency to address any recommendations that result from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) study on the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program, FMCSA has determined that a Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SNPRM) is the appropriate next step in the rulemaking process. 

The Agency’s projected rulemaking schedule will be available in January 2017 via the Department’s monthly online Report on DOT Significant Rulemakings
