The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is seeking public input during the next 60 days on its Beyond Compliance program.

The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act requires FMCSA to implement a Beyond Compliance program no later than June 2017.

To date, FMCSA has held three public listening sessions on this program and previously received input from its Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee.

Using the input received and the Congressional direction in the FAST Act, the notice published in the Federal Register provides details on FMCSA’s proposal and processes to allow recognition for a motor carrier that: installs advanced safety equipment; uses enhanced driver fitness measures; adopts fleet safety management tools, technologies and programs; or satisfies other standards determined appropriate by the FMCSA Administrator.

The proposed Beyond Compliance program will not allow relief from regulatory requirements.
