FMCSA Safety Audits

In the competitive trucking industry, safety is paramount. 
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces safety regulations through a comprehensive program, and a crucial component is the Safety Audit. 
This audit, mandatory for new entrant carriers within 18 months of operation, assesses a carrier's ability to adhere to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs), and record-keeping requirements.
