WASHINGTON, D.C. — The US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) says it will delay implementation of its new CSA 2010 carrier safety rating system until the fall.
CSA 2010 was initially supposed to be rolled out in July.
In the Federal Register, the FMCSA detailed its new roll-out plans, which were changed in light of “valuable feedback” received by the agency during a series of recent listening sessions.
“FMCSA has decided to move the beginning of CSA 2010 rollout from the summer to the fall of 2010,” the FMCSA wrote in the Federal Register. “This will enable the Agency to incorporate comments and lessons learned into the CSA 2010 model prior to national rollout.”
On Nov. 30, 2010, FMCSA will begin replacing the current SafeStat system, issue warning letters to carriers and implement a new Inspection Selection System for roadside inspectors.
