Property Carrier Safety Data Removed

FMCSA Removes Property Carrier Safety and Compliance Data from Public Display




December 4, 2015 – WASHINGTON – As of December 4, 2015, pursuant to the FAST Act of 2015, much of the information previously available on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) website related to property carrier safety performance and compliance will no longer be displayed publicly. While the agency is not prohibited from displaying all of the data, no information will be available for property carriers while appropriate changes are made. This also applies to information provided to the public through the QCMobile app. FMCSA is working to return the website and app to operation as quickly as possible. All information on passenger carriers remains available, and enforcement users and motor carriers can view safety data by using their login information. If you are a motor carrier and do not have login credentials, please click here for more information on how to obtain your PIN.

This change makes it harder for reporters and citizens to see relevant safety data. The ruling essentially requires non-industry members to seek access through third parties. Any enforcement agent can access the data through the QCMobile app. The same access arrangement is available through any commercial motor carrier.
