Overview of FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System Display Enhancements and New Adjudicated Citations Policy: Industry Webinar Briefing

The FMCSA National Training Center (NTC) is pleased to offer this webinar to inform Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) public and industry partners of the final enhancements to the display of information on the Safety Measurement System (SMS) public website ( and outline changes to the Agency’s Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) being implemented to improve uniformity in inspection violation data. The webinar will be offered three times in August.

SMS Display Enhancements: FMCSA completed these changes to the design of the SMS public website after careful review and consideration of the comments received in response to the November 2013 Federal Register Notice announcing the preview of the proposed display changes. These enhancements do not modify or change the SMS Methodology.

Changes to MCMIS: FMCSA announced in a June 2014 Federal Register Notice (79 FRN 32491 at that it would proceed with a new policy to reflect the results of adjudicated citations related to roadside inspection violation. This announcement followed a December 2013 Federal Register Notice initially proposing the policy, which has received widespread support in the commercial motor vehicle industry. The policy only applies to inspections conducted on or after August 23, 2014, and is not implemented retroactively.

Target Audience: Public users of safety data, Motor Carriers and other Industry Safety Stakeholders
