These question and answer (Q&A) sessions will provide industry stakeholders an opportunity to ask questions about the proposed Safety Measurement System (SMS) enhancements and the preview, and receive answers in real time. These sessions are designed to give industry stakeholders time to learn more about the proposed changes following the release of the public SMS Preview on October 4, 2016. The SMS Preview will be released with a follow-on Federal Register Notice announcing a 60-day comment period.

To support the Q&A sessions, FMCSA developed a video presentation, which outlines the proposed changes and how to use the preview website. Before joining an online Q&A session, participants can view the video along with other reference materials available in the SMS Preview Help Center. Each session will end once all questions related to the preview have been answered. The Agency encourages stakeholders to submit questions ahead of time via the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) Feedback form.
