CSA Safety Measurement System (SMS) Updated, Reflects Adjudicated Citations

Oct 9, 2014 | Industry News

The CSA Safety Measurement System (SMS) Website has been updated with the September 26, 2014 snapshot. Starting with this snapshot and then all subsequent snapshots, the SMS integrates the results of adjudicated citations associated with inspections conducted on or after August 23, 2014 that have been processed through DataQs. Check your safety assessment now at: http://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/sms.

For more information on the adjudicated citations policy, check out a factsheet, a glossary of key terms and, most recently posted to the CSA Website, a presentation from the August webinars on the adjudicated citations policy and SMS display changes.

NOTE TO CARRIERS: There are two ways to access and view all of your safety data, including any results of adjudicated citations for inspections conducted on or after August 23, 2014 that have been processed through DataQs. Log into your Portal account (https://portal.fmcsa.dot.gov/login) or log into the SMS website with your FMCSA-issued U.S. DOT Number Personal Identification Number (PIN) (NOT a Docket Number PIN). If you do not know or have forgotten your PIN, you can request one via http://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/ and follow the instructions on the page.
