FMCSA Seeks Comments on PASAs for Mexico-Domiciled Motor Carriers

 

In a notice published in the March 24, 2008, Federal Register, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announces and requests public comment on data and information concerning the Pre-Authority Safety Audits (PASAs) for motor carriers that have applied to participate in the agency's project to demonstrate ability of Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate safely in the United States beyond the commercial zones on the U.S.-Mexico border. The action is required by the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, which President Bush signed into law in May 2007.

Comments must be received on or before April 8, 2008, and all received will be posted without change to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided. As of Feb. 7, 2008, twelve carriers have been granted authority to operate beyond the border commercial zones as part of this cross-border demonstration project. However, FMCSA has chosen to publish for public comment data and information relating to all PASAs conducted as of Feb. 7, 2008.

On Oct. 17, 2007, FMCSA published PASA data for all motor carriers that had applied to participate in the demonstration project, based on information available as of Oct. 9, 2007. You can view the full listings of Mexican carriers in the tables that are appended to the March 24 Notice.
