Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) SafeSpect Pilot/Proof of Concept

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an Operating Administration (OA) within the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) with a core mission to reduce commercial motor vehicle-related crashes and fatalities. To further this mission, FMCSA developed the SafeSpect pilot/proof of concept to ensure compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) and Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). SafeSpect is FMCSA's new system for collecting data related to the inspection of a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), the motor carrier, and its driver. These inspections follow a set of standards set by an alliance of Federal and State enforcement personnel and the motor carrier industry. These inspections determine the roadworthiness of the vehicle in operation and the driver's eligibility and fitness to drive. 

FMCSA is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) in accordance with the E-Government Act of 2002 to address the privacy risks associated with the SafeSpect pilot/proof of concept and its collection and use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
