Safety Monitoring System and Compliance Initiative for Mexican Motor Carriers Operating in the United States
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); request for comments.
The FMCSA proposes to implement a safety monitoring system and compliance initiative to help determine whether Mexican-domiciled carriers conducting operations anywhere in the United States comply with applicable safety regulations and conduct safe operations. This NPRM would revise the safety fitness regulations at 49 CFR part 385 to implement a safety oversight program designed to evaluate the safety fitness of Mexican carriers within 18 months after receiving conditional authority to operate in the United States. This proposal is necessary to implement the entry provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
