Is the motor carrier’s HMSP suspended or revoked immediately upon being identified for enhanced oversight?

FAQ 20: Is the motor carrier’s HMSP suspended or revoked immediately upon being identified for enhanced oversight?

Answer: No.  If a carrier is identified for enhanced oversight, the Agency will monitor the carrier’s safety and compliance behaviors, and conduct an investigation when warranted.  If an investigation is conducted and the final safety rating is less than satisfactory, then the HMSP will be immediately suspended.  During the time a carrier has a proposed rating of less than satisfactory, the carrier may file a petition for a change in the safety rating based on corrective action in accordance with 49 CFR 385.17, or a petition for administrative review based on 49 CFR 385.15.
