Vehicle and carrier regulations are always facing changes, and this is especially true in 2017 due to political changes that are impacting how business in all sectors are being measured. One of the biggest considerations for carriers in the continually changing proposal of how safety fitness is determined. The previous administration had proposed a more binary standard for safety of 'unfit,' meaning a carrier had failed to adhere to road safety regulations and compliance, or a blank rating, which would imply compliance and safety. However, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration withdrew this proposed change, and carriers will probably have the same rating range from satisfactory to unsatisfactory as before.
What does this withdrawal mean for you?
Regulations don't always change; sometimes they change back and forth as different regulatory parties try to make what they think are the best changes moving forward. Once the report is completed this summer, both Congress and the trucking industry will have a better idea of what future regulatory ratings will look like.
