FMCSA Announces Daylong Public Forum on Cargo Securement, March 26

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces a public meeting concerning the implementation of the North American Standard for Protection against Shifting or Falling Cargo. FMCSA cargo securement rules are based on the North American Cargo Securement Standard Model Regulations, reflecting the results of a multi-year comprehensive research program to evaluate what were then current U.S. and Canadian cargo securement regulations; the motor carrier industry's best practices; and recommendations presented during a series of public meetings involving U.S. and Canadian industry experts, federal, state and provincial enforcement officials, and other interested parties. Canada's Council of Ministers Responsible for Transportation and Highway Safety approved a National Safety Code Standard for cargo securement, which is also based on the Model Regulations.

The March 26, 2008, meeting is to discuss the process for ensuring consistent interpretation of the harmonized cargo securement standards by FMCSA and the Canadian Provinces, and interpretation issues raised by enforcement agencies and motor carriers in the United States and Canada. The meeting will be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, 700 14th Street; it will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. For more information contact Mike Huntley, FMCSA's chief of the Vehicle and Roadside Operations Division (MC-PSV), (202) 366-9209, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. 20590.
