ARE YOU PREPARED?
A compliance review is an on-site inspection of the motor carrier’s records and operations by a U.S Department of Transportation Federal Inspector or a California Highway Patrol Officer to determine whether the carrier meets the safety fitness standard requirements. Upon completion of the review, a motor carrier will receive a safety rating.
A compliance review is usually conducted to investigate potential safety violations, to investigate complaints, in response to a carrier’s request for a change in safety rating, or a standard annual review.
The safety rating categories are:
- Satisfactory safety rating means that a motor carrier has in place and functioning adequate safety management controls to meet the safety fitness standard prescribed in §385.5. Safety management controls are adequate if they are appropriate for the size and type of operation of the particular motor carrier.
- Conditional safety rating means a motor carrier does not have adequate safety management controls in place to ensure compliance with the safety fitness standard that could result in occurrences listed in §385.5 (a) through (k).
- Unsatisfactory safety rating means a motor carrier does not have adequate safety management controls in place to ensure compliance with the safety fitness standard which has resulted in occurrences listed in§385.5 (a) through (k).
