FMCSA will be holding listening sessions to explore the benefits and feasibility of crediting carriers and drivers with safety tools and programs that go beyond mere compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Advocated by ATA and mandated by a provision in the FAST Act, FMCSA is evaluating the "Beyond Compliance" concept as a way to recognize and reward motor carriers, through credit in FMCSA's Compliance, Safety, Accountability program or other means, for adopting advanced safety technologies or fleet and driver safety management programs.

During the listening sessions, scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 12 in Louisville, Ky. and Sunday, Jan. 31 in Atlanta, Ga., FMCSA will seek carrier input on: what type of technologies and programs should be included; how to best incentivize motor carriers to participate; and how FMCSA could verify that the technologies/programs have be implemented. Those who are unable to attend a listening session may also submit written comments to be considered by FMCSA.

 

The Atlanta session is on January 31 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Building C, 285 Andrew Young International Blvd. NW. It is currently scheduled for 2-4pm. GMTA encourages members to attend. By all accounts there appears to be no early registration or sign-up to speak. It appears those who show up will sign up on site.
