Industry Receives "Zero Defect" Final Rule (6/12/2012)

The White House Office of Management and Budget has completed its review of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's revised Final Rule on the inspection, repair and maintenance of intermodal equipment as it pertains to filing a DVIR on equipment that has no defects.

On March 31, 2011, the Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association and the Institute of International Container Lessors submitted a joint petition to FMCSA requesting the repeal of the provision of the FMCSRs that requires motor carriers to prepare and transmit a DVIR to the IEP at the time the equipment is returned, although no damage, defects or deficiencies are noted. The petitioners argued that requiring the preparation and transmittal of these no-defect DVIRs imposes an undue burden on drivers, motor carriers, IEPs and intermodal facilities. IANA filed comments supporting the position of OCEMA and the IICL. Click here to view the amended Final Rule.

March 13, 2012, Calverton, MD —The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently added the ability for Intermodal Equipment Providers (IEPs) to access their inspection data online through the FMCSA Web Portal. Before IEPs can access this date they are required to request a personal identification number (PIN) and sign up for a Portal Account.

Attention Motor Carriers, IEPs, M&R vendors and Facility Operators

FMCSA seeks comments on No Defect DVIR (Driver Vehicle Inspection Report) for intermodal equipment. Comments due August 8, 2011. (6/7/11):

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) proposes to delete the requirement for drivers operating intermodal equipment to submit and intermodal equipment providers to retain driver-vehicle inspection reports when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any defects on the intermodal equipment used.

Attention Motor Carriers, IEPs, M&R vendors and Facility Operators

As follow-up to the IANA notice dated Aug. 9, 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced in the Aug. 20, 2010, Federal Register that it would extend the compliance date, with respect to the No Defect Driver Vehicle Inspection report (DVIR) submission requirement, outlined in section 390.42 (b), until June 30, 2011.

The FMCSA has determined that a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) will be issued to the roadability docket (2005-23315) in order to seek public comments on the proposal to eliminate the portion of 390.42 (b) that requires motor carriers to prepare and transmit a DVIR to the Intermodal Equipment Provider upon return of the intermodal equipment, when the equipment has no known damage, defects or deficiencies. Pending further FMCSA action, if intermodal equipment does not have a reportable defect (as listed in 396.11 (a) (2)), upon return of the equipment, a DVIR is not required.

In response to the "Roadability" regulations, IANA has developed a Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) processing service to assist Motor Carriers, Intermodal Equipment Providers (IEPs), Facility Operators and Maintenance & Repair vendors with regulatory compliance and identification of damaged equipment.

Effective June 30, 2010, the final roadability rules issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will require formal submission of Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (396.11 & 396.12) and Driver Vehicle Examination Reports (396.9).

IANA has created interfaces between the Global Intermodal Equipment Registry, IANA's Intermodal Driver Database (IDD) and Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement (UIIA) database to provide efficient access to the data needed for DVIR reporting. This includes the provision of an electronic driver's signature.

Although differing systems exist within the industry to provide DVIR reporting, IANA has developed a standard industry system for DVIR reporting using IANA's DVIR Web Portal, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), EDI, XML, fixed format file transfers.
