Reg Alert: A new FMCSA rule requires motor carriers to inspect their vehicles’ rear impact guards as part of the annual inspection, starting Dec. 9, 2021. Most (but not all) CMVs are required by 49 CFR §393.86 to have a rear impact guard that meets specific criteria. To pass an annual inspection, a rear impact guard must meet the standards listed in item #15 in Appendix A to Part 396. The inspection form must include “rear impact guard” (either pre-printed or written by hand) as one of the items inspected.
