Proposed Enhancements to the Motor Carrier Safety Measurement System (SMS) Public Web Site
FMCSA provides notice and seeks comments on proposed enhancements to the display of information on the Agency's Safety Measurement System (SMS) public Web site. FMCSA first announced the implementation of the SMS in April 2010 and announced further improvements to the SMS in March 2012 and August 2012. Consistent with its prior announcements, the Agency proposes changes to the design of the SMS public Web site that are the direct result of feedback from stakeholders regarding the information displayed. However, the Agency is not proposing changes to the SMS methodology at this time. On November 4, 2013, FMCSA began a preview of the proposed Web site enhancements at https://csa.fmcsa.dot.gov/SMSPreview/. Motor carriers are able to log in with their Portal account to view their own data in the redesigned format. The general public will be also able to access simulated motor carrier data to view the improved Web site design. During the preview period, FMCSA will hold several webinars to provide detailed information about the proposed SMS display changes.
