FMCSA proposes enhancements to information on the public Safety Measurement System (SMS) Web site and responds to comments received in response to FMCSA's Federal Register Notice, “Proposal for Future Enhancements to the Motor Carrier Safety Measurement System (SMS),” published on June 29, 2015. This notice explains the Agency's proposed enhancements to the public SMS Web site, including two additional changes not originally proposed, which were identified during the development of the SMS Preview. FMCSA has provided information about the proposed enhancements to the National Academies of Sciences to consider in the Correlation Study required by Section 5221 of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The proposed enhancements will be available for preview, at: on October 4, 2016. The Agency seeks comments on these changes based on the preview. The Agency will not implement the changes until after the Agency satisfies the requirements of Section 5223 of the FAST Act.
