A federal appeals court has denied a request by several industry groups to delay full implementation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrationâ€™s CSA (Compliance Safety and Accountability) monitoring system.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Friday rejected a bid by the National Association of Small Trucking Companies, the Expedite Alliance of North America and Air and Expedited Motor Carriers Association to delay the planned Dec. 12 opening of fleets’ CSA scores to the public.
FMCSA had urged the court not to block its plan to give shippers access to data for any fleet calculated under the CSA system of BASICs, or Behavior Analysis Safety Improvement Categories.
In its ruling, the court said NASTC and its allies â€œhave not satisfied the stringent standards required for a stay pending court review.â€�
The attorney for the groups, Kenneth Siegel, said in an e-mail to Transport Topics that the groups were discussing how they would proceed.
Carriersâ€™ CSA scores are now publicly available via FMCSA.
