Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER)

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) core mission is to reduce commercial motor vehicle-related crashes and fatalities. To further this mission, FMCSA implemented the Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) system to help manage commercial vehicle and shipper safety data and provide reliable access to this data to federal and state safety agencies. The SAFER public website allows users to access a wide range of census, inspection, and crash reports for the motor carrier industry as well as motor carrier snapshots and in-depth company safety profiles. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) update is necessary to address risks associated with migrating the SAFER system to the FMCSA Cloud Environment.
