CSA - Who Does It Affect?

Every company with a U.S. DOT number and operating in interstate commerce will be affected by CSA and all intrastate carriers transporting placarded hazmat.

Operating in interstate commerce means the passengers or goods have traveled into or through another state or country, or that someone has gone into another state or country to perform a service.

Even if the truck or bus does not leave the state, but the passengers or goods have or will as part of the trip, the transportation is considered to be in interstate commerce.

Interstate commerce means the goods have left their home state or the person performing a service has left his or her home state.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) also has jurisdiction over intrastate hazmat carriers.
