On April 1, 2020, the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) issued changes to the North American Out-of-Service Standards.
The North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria (OOSC) is the pass-fail criteria for roadside safety inspections. The purpose of the criteria is to identify critical safety violations. Those violations render the driver, vehicle and/or motor carrier out of service until the condition(s) or violation(s) are corrected or repaired.
The North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria is updated annually, effective April 1 of each year. The 2020 out-of-service criteria replaces and supersedes all previous versions.
Many NBIS insureds are directly impacted by several of the changes CVSA announced. Those are:
- Drivers enrolled in the FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse
- Braking system
