FMCSA is pushing back the initial stage of implementation of CSA 2010 to late Fall so the Agency can incorporate industry and stakeholder comments, as well as lessons learned from the pilot states, into the program’s model. FMCSA is currently considering changes to the method of measuring exposure, peer groupings, and the violation severity weightings.
FMCSA’s Notice also explains that beginning on Monday, April 12, the Agency will provide all carriers with an opportunity to preview their performance data sorted into the seven CSA 2010 categories, but not their scores or percentile rankings (comparison to “peers.”) To view this data, carriers will need to go to http://csa2010.fmcsa.dot.gov, and enter their Personal Identification Number (PIN). The Notice provides information for carriers that do not have a PIN, or have forgotten their PIN. Beginning in August 2010, after any refinements to the model are made, FMCSA’s Notice states that “carriers will be able to see an assessment of their violations through CSA 2010.” Presumably, this means that a carrier will be able to see its scores and percentile rankings in each of the seven categories before program implementation begins on Nov. 30. ATA strongly encourages members to take advantage of the data preview, beginning on April 12.
