FMCSA CSA SMS Portal not working properly, agency reports

Carriers unable to access CSA BASIC scores

Posted December 22, 2016

If you are trying to access your Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) BASIC (Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category) scores, you may find the Portal is having technical difficulties.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), recent system upgrades and maintenance have affected the Safety Measurement System Portal functionality, making information unavailable at this time.

Impacts are outlined below:

  • Display of the SMS BASICs is currently disabled within the Portal.
  • Not all state inspections/crashes are uploaded at this time. FMCSA is working/troubleshooting with some individual states to complete the inspection/crash upload.
  • Individual Carrier Safety Profile generation is not working for some carriers. FMCSA is working to restore this functionality to all carriers.
