CSA SMS Website Updated

Jan 14, 2016 | Industry News

The CSA Safety Measurement System (SMS) Website has been updated with the December 28, 2015 snapshot.

Pursuant to the FAST Act of 2015, some of the information previously available on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Website related to property carrier compliance and safety performance is no longer available for public display. If you are a property carrier, you must log in to view your SMS results. All passenger carrier information that was previously available remains available to the public and complete SMS results can be obtained by logging in. If you are a motor carrier and do not have login credentials, please click here for more information on how to obtain your PIN.

Complete SMS results are only available to enforcement users and motor carriers that are logged into the SMS.

As a motor carrier, your Vehicle Miles Travelled (VMT) and Power Unit (PU) data from the Motor Carrier Registration form (MCS-150) are used to calculate your Unsafe Driving and Crash Indicator Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category percentiles.

To ensure the most accurate information is used to calculate your percentiles, update your VMT and PU data before January 28th. Visit the FMCSA Registration page to update your MCS-150 information. Under the “Existing Registration Updates” section, choose the first option: “I need to update my USDOT number registration information or file my biennial update.”

PLEASE NOTE: The SMS Website is updated monthly, so your MCS-150 changes will not be reflected on that site until the next monthly update, the week of February 8th. View the schedule of SMS updates for more information.
