Additionally, TIA stated that it ‘‘stands ready to work with the Agency to make the NCCDB a useful tool to identify bad actors whether it be a motor carrier, a broker, or another entity, and use that information to take the necessary enforcement action.’’ Id. As previously mentioned, FMCSA is in the process of updating the NCCDB to include its interface. FMCSA is hopeful that the update to the interface will make it easier for system users to file complaints in the NCCDB. The update will also include the option for the system user to select broker allegations specific to property carriers when filing their complaint. FMCSA will strive to respond to every complaint promptly, thoroughly investigate all valid complaints, and initiate enforcement action when applicable. On November 2, 2021, the OwnerOperator Independent Drivers Association, Inc (OOIDA) filed a comment (OOIDA comments) in response to the September 3 Notice. In its comments, OOIDA acknowledged that the ‘‘Information Collection Request is necessary for the agency to perform its mission. . .’’ OOIDA comments, at 2. However, OOIDA indicated that ‘‘[a]s currently administered, the NCCDB is an inadequate outlet for drivers to report harassment, coercion, and other violations of commercial regulations.’’ Id. at 1. Moreover, OOIDA raised concerns about the Agency’s response to complaints, insufficient follow-up with drivers after filing complaints, the ambiguity of the name ‘‘National Consumer Complaint Database,’’ and FMCSA’s lack of outreach to drivers informing them about the NCCDB. Id. at 1–2. Finally, OOIDA ‘‘encourage[d] FMCSA to collaborate with GAO so overdue changes to the NCCDB can be made as soon as possible.’’ Id. at 2. As previously mentioned, FMCSA is in the process of updating the NCCDB. FMCSA is hopeful that the update will improve the adequacy of the database and allow drivers to report harassment, coercion, and additional violations of commercial regulations. FMCSA is not currently considering changing the National Consumer Complaint Database’s name. The National Consumer Complaint Database, commonly referred to as the NCCDB, is a well-known and highly frequented database that consumers, brokers, motor carriers, and industry personnel use. In 2021, the database received over 18,000 complaints. Therefore, FMCSA does not believe that there is a stakeholder awareness problem due to the name of the database. FMCSA looks forward to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Feb 22, 2022 Jkt 256001 continuing to hear OOIDA’s perspective on the name of the database and categories within it and will strive to respond to every complaint promptly, thoroughly investigate all valid complaints, and initiate enforcement action when applicable. FMCSA looks forward to continuing to work with stakeholders on issues related to the NCCDB. Title: National Consumer Complaint Database. OMB Control Number: 2126–0067.
