Carriers Can Preview Proposed CSA Safety Measurement System Changes

May 10, 2012

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has updated the CSA Safety Measurement System website and the SMS Preview website. Carriers can log in to to CSA's Safety Measurement System site to preview the first package of proposed changes through two websites:


- Visit the CSA Website and log in with an FMCSA-issued U.S. DOT number and a personal identification number, or
- Log in to the FMCSA Portal and select the "CSA Outreach" link.

FMCSA encourages motor carriers to view the SMS Preview to see how methodology changes will affect their SMS results.

Written comments regarding the changes can be filed to the Federal Docket Management System, Docket ID Number FMCSA-2012-0074.

To log in to the SMS or SMS Preview websites to view safety data, carriers will need an FMCSA-issued U.S. DOT number and personal identification number (NOT a Docket Number PIN). If you do not know or have forgotten your PIN, you can request one at http://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov and select "Click here to request your Docket Number PIN and/or USDOT Number PIN." Be sure to request a U.S. DOT Number PIN, NOT a Docket Number PIN.
