FMCSA’s Fit, Willing and Able regulatory policy raising safety bar for truck fleets seeking operating authority
Aug 14, 2012 10:13 AM
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Fit, Willing, and Able policy guidance raises the safety bar for commercial trucks and buses by providing the specific criteria the agency considers when it grants, withholds, revokes, or suspends a company’s operating authority registration.
The guidance reinforces the agency's policy of not granting operating authority to companies that create new identities or affiliate relationships to avoid a negative safety history. It also clarifies that the agency will scrutinize companies that have had their operating authority suspended or revoked within the past six years to determine their willingness to comply with federal safety laws.
