Motor Carrier Matching:
Complete and accurate carrier information is very important when qualifying vehicles recorded on a State's accident report are entered into the Crash Module of SAFETYNET. This collection of crash data allows FMCSA to identify carriers who are potentially “unsafe” for application of enforcement measures. To perform this identification, carriers involved in qualifying crashes are "matched" to their profile compiled in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). Their profile is a historical record of inspection and safety audit information recorded in the SAFETYNET Inspection Module combined with the data collected in the Crash Module. In order for FMCSA to take appropriate action, the process of matching carriers to the proper record is critical.
