A congressional hearing held last September concluded with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration assuring stakeholders that refinements to the Compliance, Safety, Accountability program were under way and that more were scheduled in the near future.

In December, the agency made good on its commitment to install refinements to the CSA initiative by implementing 11 changes to the Safety Measurement System, something they had already begun working on months prior to the congressional hearing. These enhancements are intended to provide the agency with a means of more clearly identifying unsafe carriers, not just those who may be negligent in their recordkeeping compliance.
