Download as PDF 44842 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 145 / Thursday, July 29, 2010 / Notices Hazmat Intelligence Portal (HIP) The Hazmat Intelligence Portal (HIP) provides an integrated information source to identify hazardous material safety trends through the analysis of incident and accident information. This information repository supports all transportation modes, data analysts, field inspectors, and team leaders. HIP includes several hazardous materials data points (e.g., Incidents from the 5800 report, PHMSA registrations, approvals, cargo tank registrations, EPA toxic release inventory, inspection/ reviews, NRC incidents, one time movements, penalties, PHMSA complains, RAM certifications, USCG releases, and violations). HIP data is organized on customized Dashboards to provide data pertinent to the mode, agency, office or group utilizing the system. The Dashboards are customized for each user or user group. HIP is not searchable by the general public due to privacy concerns. Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) FMCSA’s SAFER System provides company safety data and related services to the industry and public. SAFER’s Company Snapshot is an electronic record of a carrier’s identification, size commodity information, and safety records, including the safety rating (if any), a roadside out-of-service inspection summary, and crash information. SAFER is publicly searchable and can be found at: http://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/ CompanySnapshot.aspx WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Criteria Used by PHMSA in Determining Initial Fitness The following criteria are currently used by PHMSA when determining minimum level of fitness.

II. Purpose of Public Meeting The August 19, 2010 meeting is intended to provide an opportunity for all interested parties to comment on the aspects of the Minimum Level of Fitness Determination criteria. During this meeting, PHMSA is soliciting comments relative to the use of HIP and SAFER data, applicability of the data, criteria used in determining an applicant’s minimum level of fitness, potential alternative sources of fitness data, and other appropriate matters.
