Safety Management Plan (SMP) and Correspondence Assistance

DOT/FMCSA safety interventions with your company can be random or targeted based on your violation history. An intervention may include either one or both of the following:

  • 1 A full Compliance Review of all the record-keeping requirements noted in the Federal
  • 2 Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs)
  • 3 A specific class of safety violation, such as Hours of Service or Maintenance

After the compliance review, you will be asked to respond in writing with a Safety Management Plan (SMP) based on the results of your evaluation.

For carriers who received an Unsatisfactory safety rating, you are given just 60 days to respond to have your SMP reviewed and approved.

SMP Process

Our SMP process involves the following services:

  • A review of your audit results
  • Correspondence with the auditor to clarify actions required
  • Assisting the carrier in accomplishing any immediate actions required
  • Constructing the written Safety Management Plan and reviewing its short and long-term requirements with the carrier
  • Submitting the SMP and working with the auditor for approval
  • Working with the carrier on a plan to maintain the SMP requirements
