On September 13, 2012, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Administrator Anne Ferro participated in a seven-member panel about the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program in front of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure’s Subcommittee on Highways and Transit. In her testimony, Administrator Ferro outlined CSA’s key components, which are the Safety Measurement System, the interventions process, and the Safety Fitness Determination rulemaking. Her written testimony is now available online at http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/about/news/testimony/tst-12-09-13.htm.

CSA is a robust national outreach program that collects and analyzes input from Congress, industry, safety advocates, and other stakeholders for its potential to further enhance effectiveness in identifying patterns of safety violations. Additional information about today’s Congressional hearing on CSA can be found on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure’s website (http://transportation.house.gov/hearings/hearingdetail.aspx?NewsID=1714).

FMCSA Announces a New MCSAC Subcommittee on CSA

English: Triskelion for the United States Depa...As part of its continued effort to improve motor carrier safety on the Nation’s roads, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has formed a Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC) subcommittee for the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program. On Friday, August 3, 2012, FMCSA published a Federal Register Notice to formally announce the CSA subcommittee that will meet during the next MCSAC meeting on August 27–28, 2012 (http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FMCSA-2006-26367-0107).

The CSA program has made significant strides in reaching more motor carriers, reducing violations, and increasing public awareness. Feedback from carriers, safety advocates, law enforcement, industry, and other members of the public remain a valued part of this process.
